Game on!

Well, the Cold War has just gone hot.

Head of Greek Bishops Accuses Four Cardinals of Heresy, Apostasy and Schism

… because they asked him to be clear and say plainly what he meant.

LifeSite has been covering some of the reactions from the truly monstrous Blase Cupich.

The attacks have not been slow or unambiguous, so that’s something.

Evil doesn’t waste any time does it.


It reminds me that the day after war was declared in 1939, the Germans launched immediate bombing raids on Malta, Britain’s naval bastion in the Mediterranean. The Maltese had next to nothing to fight with. They actually had only three WW I biplanes – named “Faith,” “Hope,” and “Charity” – and a single small anti-aircaft gun.

Valletta was so badly damaged, the Maltese people so starved by the blockade, but so determined not to give in that the king awarded the entire population of the islands the George’s Cross. I’ve seen it in Valletta’s military museum. I cried. I got to touch the fusillage of “Faith” the only surviving biplane.

There’s a time for peace and a time for war. Suit up.

    “Now God be thanked, Who has matched us to this hour!”

    ( Actually, the Biplanes were a pitiful sign of Britain’s unwillingness to prepare, and pay for, an adequate defense. Those planes were built in the 1930’s!)

    Well said, Hilary. Having read your piece of Francis and on Putin, I am convinced what storms there are in the Church inevitably erupt in the world. Grim times but, counterintuitively, a great time to be alive. and, please God, give witness to Him as best we can.

    “For the time is, that judgment should begin at the house of God. And if first at us, what shall be the end of them that believe not the gospel of God? And if the just man shall scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

    Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God, commend their souls in good deeds to the faithful Creator. ” 1 Peter 4: 17-19

    The Greek bishop’s name is Francis also? I’m seeing a pattern here.

    “Dum auróra finem daret, Cæcília exclamávit dicens: Eia, mílites Christi, abícite ópera tenebrárum et induímini arma lucis.”

    As dawn was fading into day, Cecilia cried and said: Arise, O soldiers of Christ, cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armour of light.

    (From today’s Lauds, St. Cecilia)
