    I’m not saying this in flippancy, but I think this Pope may be like Gollum.

    Andrew: I believe the time for the Consecration is past. Not that it isn’t to be wished for, but didn’t Louis XVI try that, too, in France? It wasn’t for him, then. The moment has passed, the ax was to fall.

    Georges: Wow! Thank you for that link. Good stuff.

    I always come back to see the comments after a post; such great thoughts, except for James. :p

    Well, Hilary, your subcreative blog is a sudden joyous turn for me.

    Dear Hilary (or anyone else that knows what I’m talking about below),

    A while back – within the year, I think, I’m almost certain you wrote an article that had as it’s basis a meditation on the second chapter of the book of Wisdom. I’ve googled and duckduckgo-ed and Ixquicked till I’m blue in the fingers, and can’t find it. Please tell me I’m not hallucination or the I’m in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and have gotten the author wrong.

    “And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?

    And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

    And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:

    And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” – 1 Kings 19:9-12

    Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us.

    “In order to free men from bondage to these heresies, those whom the merciful love of My Most Holy Son will destine for that restoration will need great strength of will, constancy, valor and confidence in God. To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions in which everything will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This will be, then, the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”

    The “eucatastrophe” will be a positive act of God, this “greater battle” is His. Ours is the lesser battle (conserving what we have, keeping the seeds during the flood) and the preliminary steps to the “greater battle”, or what is called “the preliminary battle”.
    Essential reading right here:

    Of course you know these lines:
    “What a tale we have been in, Mr. Frodo, haven’t we?”, Sam said. “I wish I could hear it told! Do you think they’ll say: Now comes the story of Nine-fingered Frodo and the Ring of Doom? And then everyone will hush, like we did, when in Rivendell they told us the tale of Beren One-hand and the Great Jewel. I wish I could hear it! And I wonder how it will go on after our part.”
    Cardinal Burke once made the wonderful remark: “The end is already written.” And I believe firmly (despite everything …), that we’re in the hand of the very best Creator (though of course there are only very few better authors than JRRT)

    GOOD FREAKIN QUESTION. It gets tough after the thousandth time, telling yourself that maybe God will grant it tomorrow.

    The harder the battle, the greater the victory! Keep fighting!

    Psalm 44 (43 Douay):

    17 All this has come upon us,
    though we have not forgotten thee,
    or been false to thy covenant.
    18 Our heart has not turned back,
    nor have our steps departed from thy way,
    19 that thou shouldst have broken us in the place of jackals,
    and covered us with deep darkness.
    20 If we had forgotten the name of our God,
    or spread forth our hands to a strange god,
    21 would not God discover this?
    For he knows the secrets of the heart.
    22 Nay, for thy sake we are slain all the day long,
    and accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
    23 Rouse thyself! Why sleepest thou, O Lord?
    Awake! Do not cast us off for ever!
    24 Why dost thou hide thy face?
    Why dost thou forget our affliction and oppression?
    25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust;
    our body cleaves to the ground.
    26 Rise up, come to our help!
    Deliver us for the sake of thy steadfast love!

    It’s when our Pope finally does what he was told to do – and consecrates Russia. At this point, is there anything more important to offer our prayers up for? The Pope – is it this one when he finally comes to his senses? Maybe, but doubt it. – IS Frodo. Any other hope for our Holy Mother Church is contingent on this because most of our priests and bishops are convinced that everything’s just **Fab-u-lous**.

    ‘Tis devoutly to be wish’t.

    Thanks Hilary (the Good Hilary, as we call you around here–on and around the Palisades ten miles or so upriver from Sodom on Hudson).

    What an awesome scene. Don’t think you could make a more accurate physical portrayal of the current spiritual scene. Love how they portray Sauron’s eye panicking as he realizes what’s happening. When Sauron falls it will be sweet indeed.

    Yes. Let’s roll.

    Was only able to watch “The Hobbit”. Such a silly movie version of the sublime novel. Don’t get me started on the “Game of Thrones”.
