John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Fifth Sorrowful Mystery in conjunction with the tenth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. From the sixth hour to the ninth hour Jesus Christ, the King of kings, the Lord and Savior, Redeemer and Messias, hung in abject humility upon a tree, mocked and derided as the few faithful stood near. After three hours they would all know that this man was the Son of God. Many would not admit it. Pride would not let them. But for those who were sincere, such as the good thief and the centurion; they had to be honest with themselves. So also we must be honest with ourselves as we stand with His Blessed Mother, the beloved disciple, and Mary Magdalene. For this is the moment of truth.

On the feast of a martyred pope we bring you the final installment of Griff Ruby's sixteen installment on his excellent YouTube Series "Sedevacantism - A Catholic Perspective". The Traditional Bishops are the dry martyrs on the front line who have the power and authority to elect a valid Pope. Griff illustrates this in completing his dissection of the damage Lumen Gentium did in abdicating jurisdiction of every ecclesiastical authority who followed the new establishment formed at Vatican II and this included every priest, bishop and, yes, pope. He points out that the true Traditional Bishops of the Church have all the necessary authority to perform all that is needed to restore the papacy, and can and should do so, and, if they do, be confident that God shall shower the Church with miracles once that happens. Yes, that means holding a Conclave and electing a valid successor to the last true Pope - Pius XII of happy memory. Yes, it has been 53 years of an interminable interregnum, but as he reminds us from his example in part one, all the excess boosters and now non-effective pieces have fallen away and only the payload, the shuttle remains on the true course. That is the tracking line the true Bishops should follow for they have all the authority of Peter and have the full blessing of the Holy Ghost, Who withdrew His protection when the conciliar church broke away at Vatican Two. The exact point: Lumen Gentium. Once restored, do you think God wouldn't bestow wondrous miracles as a sign that it is the True Church? Oh, ye of little faith. Of course, He would and the conversions are unimaginable if one tries to understand the mind of God. He explains in installment sixteen: God will do the rest! .


John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery in conjunction with the ninth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. The time continuum between the Praetorium where the Jews screeched 'Crucify Him!', and the moment He arrived at the summit of Calvary could well have taken thirty minutes to an hour and a half. In this time, we have in the Via Crucis, several lessons we can garner from this interval, including His reunion with His Sorrowful Mother, the aid of Simon of Cyrene, the gentle charity of Veronica, the weeping of the women of Jerusalem, and three cruel falls along the way; each more crushing and exhausting. Despite all this, the question arises: do we have the spiritual stamina to keep up with Him? See John's meditation on this in The Fourth Sorrowful Mystery

John Gregory has provided inspiring, thought-provoking meditations for the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Our Lady's Holy Rosary first bestowed to Saint Dominic early in the thirteenth century. Since then her holy psalter has served as the most powerful weapon outside the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we could wield against the world, the flesh, and the devil. For the Fourth Glorious Mystery reflection John focuses on His Holiness Pope Pius XII's decree in proclaiming the Dogma of the Assumption on November 1, 1950 with his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus. John takes this papal decree and divides it with the first part applying to the Fourth Mystery of the Rosary on the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven. The belief of this dogmatic fact was long held by the Magisterium of the Church from the very time of the Blessed Mother being lifted up into Heaven, yet never fully proclaimed as a definitive Dogma until His Holiness Pius XII, in complete harmony with all the authentic bishops of the Church, decreed it. This inspiring papal decree is the compendium of an ideal meditation on the Fourth Glorious Mystery. In honor of this month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, he shares his reflection on The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven


John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the third Sorrowful Mystery in conjunction with the eighth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. Just as the Jews cried out in pride to patronize Pilate "We have no king but Caesar," so also we, who are true sons of God, must, in all humility, state unequivocally: "We have no King but Jesus." Where He is mocked, we offer humble prayer of reparation and expiation for these terrible sins against the Incarnate Word so cruelly tortured and disfigured. But do we or do we shrink for fear of the crowd and place respect or fear of man above respect and fear of God? See John's meditation on this in The Third Sorrowful Mystery

On the feast of a traditional saint whom the counterfeit church of conciliarism tried to decertify, we bring you Griff Ruby's fifteenth installment of his excellent YouTube Series "Sedevacantism - A Catholic Perspective". He continues his dissection of the damage Lumen Gentium did in abdicating jurisdiction of every ecclesiastical authority who followed the new establishment formed at Vatican II and this included every priest, bishop and, yes, pope. He points out that Traditional Bishops have an Apostolic mission from the lawful Catholic bishops even without a papal mandate. When dioceses combine, all lawful clerics of each automatically become lawful clerics of the new combined diocese. As Lumen Gentium dissolved all diocesan boundaries worldwide, there is remaining only a single, worldwide diocese, namely the Eternal diocese of Rome. The true canonical status of the Traditional bishops is that they are therefore assistant bishops to the Diocese of Rome. Lumen Gentium also, without realizing it, made the true Traditional Bishops of the Church a virtual "College", i.e. a legitimate "College of Cardinals" even if they do not receive the red hat, which would be impossible without a true Pope to authorize such. It was the false pope who mandated that they would remain such until Lumen Gentium itself is someday repealed and a true Pope again sits on the Seat of Peter. True Authority in a Global Diocese.


August 9 is the feast the holy Cure of Ars Saint Jean Marie Vianney with a commemoration for the Vigil of the holy martyr Saint Lawrence. St. John Mary Vianney was born at Dardilly, France, in 1786. He was a farm-hand until his nineteenth year, when he began his studies for the priesthood. His talents were poor, and his progress slow. He was ordained at Grenoble in 1815; he became parish priest of Ars in 1818. That little town was the scene of his marvelous labors until his holy death, August 4, 1859. He was canonized May 31, 1925, by Pope Plus XI. For forty years his food and sleep were insufficient to sustain human life; during the last ten years of his life he spent from sixteen to eighteen hours a day in the confessional. Enlightened by God, he could read hearts and soften the most hardened sinner. He healed the sick and cast out devils; like his Master he was openly persecuted, calumniated and hated by wicked men. His little parish... attracted ....More on St. Jean Marie Vianney

    John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the second Sorrowful Mystery in conjunction with the seventh Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. By our sins we scourge our dear Lord anew. Do we take pleasure in such masochism to our souls and to pure Love that we would continue to beat Christ? By tending to our souls, and examining our words, actions and thoughts at the healing font of Divine Mercy - the Confessional - we receive the salve of salvific Sanctifying Grace. Through the Sacrament of Penance we can put a halt to the scourging, and apply dabs of sincere love to close and comfort those terrible wounds on His precious flesh; wounds we helped open. The Second Sorrowful Mystery




    John Gregory completes his three-part series with a brief brief on Sedevacantism. Bullfighting is often considered a sport, a brutal one at that. But there is a nobility in the matadors who stand against the charging bull. These matadors then are the sedevacantists who bravely enter the ring risking their own reputations and the consequences of being rejected by man, but do it for God. The picadores and banderilleros are those who stay on the fringe and will distract the bull, but have no answer how to deal with the bull. These are the resist-and-recognize forces who have no expertise on how to kill the bull. The spectators are those who realize something is wrong but don't really want to get involved. They are fine with their comfortable position where they think they won't get harmed but little do they know that a much more dangerous beast with horns has already gored their minds and souls, causing them to grow more lukewarm, perfect foils for the heretical bull that is being thrown around the ring with only the matador and his toreros willing to stand for the truth and face down the heretics and apostate beast with the sword and cape of Catholic truth. John explains in his final Part Three of No Bull, This is Serious

The Second Sorrowful Mystery




    John Gregory presents an inspiring piece on Saint Dominic, the extirpator of heresy, who is the ideal on how we can extrapolate today those heretics far worse than in the time when the founder of the Order of Preachers walked the earth for holy Mother Church. How do we know of the heretics today? The very words of Sacred Scripture expose these heretics such as Karol Wojtoya and Josef Ratzinger, both false popes, by their own words that makes them apostates far more devious than the Albigensians who ravaged the Church in the thirteenth century. Heaven bestowed the powerful weapon of the Rosary to St. Dominic to fight heresies. Today that weapon must be used all the more fervently if we are to defeat the Modernists who subscribe to what Pope St. Pius X called the "synthesis of all heresies." Below John elaborates in pinning the false shepherds against the wall just in regard to their caving on the sixth and ninth commandments. John provides the evidence and the inspiration of St. Dominic via Dom Prosper Gueranger's words. in The Receptor of the Rosary to be the Extirpator of Heresies


The holy Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori was born near Naples and received a law doctorate in his teens. He had the world as his oyster and chose to cast his net into the sea in being a fisher of men. He founded an order dedicated to redeeming souls and he wrote volumes during a time when the enlightenment was already threatening the foundations of the Church. He vowed never to waste a moment and never did. He was the outstanding moral theologian who held the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as the greatest gift any Catholic could partake in. He foretold the very crisis the Church is suffering today when he prophesied, "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrificer'." Alphonsus, through a thorough knowledge of the Faith, the cavalier attitude already permeating the Church and through messages he himself received from Heaven, knew that day would come when, just as Our Lord foretold in Matthew 24: 15, the "abomination of desolation" would occur. He was truly the Keeper of the Moral Compass

August 20 is the Double Feast of the holy Abbot and Doctor of the Church Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. He was a truly dedicated man who turned his back on the world and took over 30 men with him to devote their lives to God. He built monasteries throughout western Europe and was the confidante of popes and kings, beggars and paupers. He was the main man in preaching the purpose of the Crusade to recover the holy land where Our Lord and Savior walked. Bernard traversed the continent stirring men through prayer and reason, never compromising the Truths and Traditions. He was responsible for the revival of the Cistercian Order. This holy and mystic Abbot from France composed one of the most beautiful prayers ever created the Memorare out of thorought devotion Our Lady . He was devoted heart and soul to his Crucified Lord and Savior Jesus Christ . The holy Abbot of Clairvaux received many visions and messages through private revelation, one of which was his zeal to help the suffering Christ so that he offered to help Him bear the terrible suffering of the cross. Christ comforted Bernard and inspired him to carry His word and faith to all parts of Europe and the mideast, entreating the saint to defend the true pontiff Pope Innocent II as opposed to the antipope Anaclete II.

Saint Augustine, whom we celebrate on August 28 is one of the greatest Doctors of the Church, one of the greatest single intellects ever. Like the Apostle Saint Paul, he began as a notorious sinner, embracing heresy after heresy, but when grace finally touched him through the prayer and reparation of others, this Saul turned into a Paul and his cries for truth were mostly heard and responded to in Heaven by the relentless efforts and graces of his loving, persevering mother Saint Monica and his mentor, the Bishop of Milan, the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ambrose, who is credited with the conversion of this man from Hippo. Sadly today neither Augustine, his mother Monica or Ambrose or all the saints who passed through this veil of tears over the centuries, would recognize the counterfeit church of conciliarism as Catholic. They would have denounced from the beginning the aggiornamento and "new springtime" as heretical and extremely harmful to souls. It was the holy Augustine, born in Tagaste, Africa who authored "City of God" - the magnificent opus on Christian philosophy - as well as his very popular work "Confessions" which, in his time and over the centuries, has drawn countless souls to the Faith. Other than the Angelic Doctor Saint Thomas Aquinas, no one has had more influence on Western Culture in the Church than Saint Augustine, The Doctor of Grace
