The Irrepressible Genius Of The Militant, Catholic Mind
The Masons win battles every day against Sacred Tradition but they're losing the war
Consider this totally fictional scenario: The HR Director of Conservative Inc. opened the door to my office, looked around then fixated on the bronze statue of St. Michael above my broadcast desk, sighed, then said “please sign this statement”. He withdrew a manila folder from his real, Saudi Arabian, camel hide satchel and handed it to me, the first paragraph began
The Cheney Neocon Dictionary is the only true expression of the English language, thereby you reject the traditional English language. Among other things, you accept that will have to ask the HR Director for permission to broadcast in the traditional English language, and that this permission would be limited to two years and could be revoked at any given time.
I located my bottle of Epiphany water, popped the retractable spout up, aimed it at his snickety mug and squeezed a 3 second long volley his way while chanting the Sancté Michael Archangeli prayer in Latin at him then chased him out the door and back into his silver, Mercedes G series SUV from which he had oozed.
End fiction, begin reality.
Sans the ordination, celibacy and poverty vows, that’s pretty much what the Cardinal of the diocese of Chicago, the sinister Blaise Cupich served to the priests of the ICK shown above venerating the Blessed Sacrament while on their knees on concrete, after their Church building was condemned for Sacramental uses by the same Cupich.

That’s what Catholic, real men do when confounded by the enemy’s deceit: defiantly practice one of the Scared Devotions of the Saints without permission or apology
IN PUBLIC! as all the Church Militant’s acts should be. They responded to an attempt to assassinate Sacred Tradition by a public display of Sacred Tradition i.e. Eucharistic Adoration. These Knights for the Church of Christ are to be admired and emulated. Let us consider the words of St. Bernard of Clairvaux in exhorting the then nascent Knights Templar to war against Christ’s external enemies, the Mohammedans.
This is the revenge which Christ contrives against his enemies, to triumph powerfully and gloriously over them by their own means. Indeed, it is both a happy and fitting thing that those who have so long fought against him should at last fight for him. Thus he recruits his soldiers among his foes, just as he once turned Saul the persecutor into Paul the preacher. Therefore I am not surprised that, as our Savior himself has affirmed, the court of heaven takes more joy in the conversion of one sinner than in the virtues of many just men who have no need of conversion. Certainly the conversion of so many sinners and evil doers will now do as much good as their former misdeeds did harm.
Read the whole thing and prepare for battle, gentlemen!
Eric Sammons, Editor at CRISIS Magazine makes a salient point on how this battle has now advanced into ALL, PUBLIC, CATHOLIC Squares and squishes cannot hide any longer:
Last week on the plane back from Canada (it’s always on a plane, isn’t it?), the pope was asked about efforts to undercut Humanae Vitae and change the Church’s absolute prohibition against artificial contraception. His answer was revealing. Instead of just simply saying that this teaching would not—because it could not—change, he launched into another diatribe against traditionalism:
But know that dogma, morality, is always on a path of development, but always developing in the same direction…I think this is very clear: a Church that does not develop its thinking in an ecclesial sense, is a Church that is going backward. This is today’s problem, and of many who call themselves traditional. No, no, they are not traditional, they are people looking to the past, going backward, without roots – it has always been done that way, that’s how it was done last century. And looking backward is a sin because it does not progress with the Church. Tradition, instead, someone said (I think I said it in one of the speeches), tradition is the living faith of those who have died. Instead, for those people who are looking backward, who call themselves traditionalists, it is the dead faith of the living. Tradition is truly the root, the inspiration by which to go forward in the Church, and this is always vertical. And looking backward is going backward, it is always closed.
In other words, to think that the Church’s teaching about artificial contraception cannot “develop” is to be a “traditionalist” who has “the dead faith of the living” (and although there’s a lot of wordplay here, “develop” essentially means “change” in this context, since an absolute moral prohibition on artificial contraception can only be changed into something it is not). Humanae Vitae is simply “how it was done last century.”
So, in the pope’s eyes, you do not have to attend the traditional Latin Mass—you don’t even have to care a lick about the liturgy—to be a “traditionalist;” simply believing that the Church cannot change her fundamental moral teachings makes you one.
We are all traditionalists now.
Indeed. Are you a “Traditionalist” and are you also a Knight, armed and ready for this battle!?
Yes? Then suit up and get to it!
