Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. No, that is not an Icelandic word. Though one might think it is considering it is the Eyjafjallajökull glacier in Iceland where a hole-in-the-ice volcano has caused world-wide havoc. The phonetics for that mouthful are AY-UH-FEW-AT-LUH-YOUR-KOOT-LUH. Go figure. Try that one on for size in saying it fast three times. Good luck.
Ironic, is it not, that the longest word in the English dictionary will soon have an effect on the entire globe? If it hasn't already. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is actually the official term for a lung disease caused by the inhalation of very fine silica dust, causing inflammation in the lungs. You've heard of 'black lung'? This is similar and it is in volcanic ash that this fine dust can be found.
I know, there are some words above that are, to say the least, literal tongue-twisters. The first word breaks down to Pneumono (as in pneumonia) ultra-microscopic-silico-volcano-coniosis. Simple enough, though for the life of me I have no idea why they didn't put it that way instead of running the letters all together. After all, it basically breaks down to silicosis. But that would be too easy. Have a feeling it was some ambitious chap who wanted his 15 minutes of fame back in 1935 when at the 103rd National Puzzlers' League annual meeting in New York, sought to trump the longest word at that time in the English dictionary, electrophotomicrographically. I know, the latter's an easy one. Whereas the former, yes, that 45-letter term without spaces makes supercalifragilisticexpialidocious seem like a contraction on Twitter.
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides an interesting article on this volcanic eruption as well as revealing a very graphic aerial photo exposing the source of the unearthly earthly regurgitation in his piece Wake Up and Smell The Sulphur Dioxide.
It brings to the surface what's really going on, at last visible to the entire world. It's satan kicking ash! Yeah, that ol' devil is desperate. After all, so many have been dumbed down to believe he no longer exists that he has to take it into his own hands to stir up some PR. Remember the old Hollywood axiom, "even bad publicity is better than no publicity." Well ol' Beelzebub has been getting no publicity lately thanks to the humanist Modernist/Communist agenda of the One World Order leaders from Washington to Rome to Moscow and Beijing. In fact, the only one talking about the dangers of the devil these days, other than Traditional Catholics, antichrist films and fans of the Omen, are such notable troglodytes as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hugo Chavez.
Of course, we know the devil isn't done and will fight to the end before his head gets crushed but good! I can't wait! Until then, however, we're in for the fight of our lives. And he's showing the very essence of his hideous ugliness in the regurgitated ash he has been vomiting from the mouth of Eyjafjallajökull. The immediate results are economic chaos by shutting down airlines and, subsequently, commerce out of fear of the silica within the massive lava cloud crystalizing in the air and bringing down passenger jets. Look at it as horizontal miniature asteroids. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconosis is the result of its lasting effect upon lungs the world over. Pretty soon non-smoking signs will become obsolete.
And in typical fashion of the prince of the world, it could very well get much worse. First of all, the last time old Eyjafjallajökull boiled over it lasted thirteen months. Yeah, over a year. Of course, that was back in 1821 when Karl Heinrich Marx was a three-year old in Prussia, just outgrowing his diapers. If only he had stayed innocent, but the man who would influence him most was one Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, who was already poisoning the landscape and a world to come with his heresies, doing so practically in the backyard of one who would embrace his thinking 130 years later when Joseph Ratzinger was ordained in 1951. Trace the fallout from those six degrees of separation.
Secondly, who knew little old Iceland had volcanoes? Let alone, active ones? In fact, they list 130 of those sedentary blow holes with 42 of them receiving names, kind of like hurricanes. Recent news reports are hinting that tremors from the original volcano could awake the sleeping giant Katla which, according to experts, could very well vomit forth plumes of fire and ash ten times greater than the unpronounceable one is presently spewing. Yet, that means nothing when we consider the greater damage done to souls. With the recent earthquakes throughout the world, and other natural disasters such as the fire and ice show in the far northern hemisphere, do you think God is trying to tell us something?
Do you think He's warning us that, like what lurks beneath Katla, Eyjafjallajökull is just the appetizer? So also, the hellish, fiendish ash cloud is just a crumb of the everlasting banquet of fire and brimstone that awaits those who think they know better than God?
Are you aware God will not be mocked, all ye who think they can pervert the one True Faith by introducing heresies and immorality into the Catholic culture and think they won't be held accountable all the more for the terrible devastation to souls they have wrought? Are you listening, Fr. Ratzinger et alli? The holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church in the time of the Arian Heresy, St. Athanasius knew what he was talking about when he said "the floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops." Pretty soon the walls and ceilings of the nether regions will be too!
Are you aware God will not be mocked all ye who lie their way into office with no remorse for violating not only the U. S. Constitution but the very Oath before God that they took to uphold said Constitution and defend the country against all enemies foreign and domestic? Are you listening, Barack, your Marxist regime, and you Senators, Congressmen, Congresswomen, and liberal activist judges? Yes, especially you on the 9th District Court of Appeals out of San Francisco!)
Are you aware God will not be mocked all ye in Hollywood, Madison Avenue or Silicon Valley who promote offenses against the sixth and ninth Commandments with your salacious films, video games, in-your-face cheesecake ads and commercials, internet and print porn?
Are you aware God will not be mocked all ye who have no respect for human property or the God-given rights of man, or even worse, no respect for the sanctity of life by greedily trying to rationalize and justify murdering a miracle child of God in what should be the safest place in the world, a mother's womb?
Are you aware God will not be mocked all ye who remain lukewarm sheople, led to the slaughter by a media who have lost all track of truth and have no intention to rediscover it for journalism ethics have become a thing of the past? It has become the politically correct modus operandi of a spoiled generation intent on doing their own thing without earning what their forefathers and parents earned. You see they feel entitled. Got a surprise for them. They're not!
Speaking of surprises, won't those above be in for such when they stand before their Almighty Judge? Heck, it's hard enough for Traditional Catholics to stay on the straight and narrow, but at least we have the true Sacraments and that is the saving grace that spurs us on. What spurs us all on more is the prayerful wish and hope that they'll be SRO in Heaven and hell will be practically empty.
Considering, however, the state of things today, that is a pipe dream and I fear they'll be jammed into hades in tighter quarters than a college frat stuffed in a phone booth. The only difference is the latter has an exit. With the former? No such luck. Forever locked in. Think of that as you watch the amazing mass of volcanic ash engulfing Europe's skies these days, a sign that the European Union's experiment has failed dismally and that only a return to the ways of great rulers, such as King St. Louis IX, where monarchies and nations will once again acknowledge a common King, Who is anything but common but rather Supreme, Christ the King. Only then will clear skies return again and the scourge of the pagan Islamic infidels decrease.
In Rome we can see the implosion right before our very eyes as more whistle blowers come forward to indict Ratzinger for his just deserts. Again, Dr. Droleskey's latest "Fall Guys" Aren't Usually "Stand-up" Guys lays it out better than anyone has yet. Were Ratzinger Catholic, he along with every other 'bishop' in practically every conciliar diocese in the world, would resign their posts and retire to a monastery to spend the rest of their mortal life in repentance and reparation.
Sadly we're in that stage of denial where athletes, Nike representatives, movie stars, famous bikers, politicians, judges, antipopes, faux cardinals, 'archbishops', 'bishops', 'presbyters' and ministers apologize, not because they're truly sorry, but because they were caught. Were they truly sorry, they would wear sackcloth and ashes and recuse themselves of any authority in the position they had previously held for they would not be worthy to lead or be held up as role models or spokespeople for they would have forfeited that right; not only before man, but more importantly before their divine Creator, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.
Reparation and penance. That is synonymous with sackcloth and ashes. Hmm, what better way to convey what we all need to do to save not only our hides, but our very souls? Divine Revelation proves it works. See Jonah and Nineveh. Remember what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah? Do fire and brimstone come to mind? In this time of absolute perversion and aversion of God's laws, do you see the correlation?
Thanks to the merits of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we have the assurance of eternal life IF we abide by all He passed down and live as He so wills in the state of grace as members of the only Church He founded. That would be the Rock of Peter, the Christian Church that only took the name Catholic to differentiate the true Church from the man-made sects that rebelled in the sixteenth century. That was the beginning of the arrogant audacity that has grown bolder over the centuries by those who trace their heretical heritage to those who broke away, daring to call themselves 'Christians' while opposing exactly what Christ asked.
You see, they refuse to recognize that the only salvific means is Sanctifying Grace and one can only receive this through the Sacraments. True, Baptism confers that grace, but succeeding sin taints it and mortal sin wipes grace off the face of the soul completely, blackening the destiny of that person unless one can breathe in the healing oxygen of the Sacrament of Penance and make amends. Did not Jesus, the Bread of life, say in St. John 6: 54, "Amen, amen I say to you: Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
You'll note that Protestants will pepper you with scriptural quotes, but shy away from the above for they have no answer. That is because they do not believe in the Transubstantiation in which the bread and wine become the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Son of man. Yes, it's a mystery, but it's also a fact. You'll note that the Transubstantiation is only possible in the Traditional Latin Mass where the exact formula in the Canon of the Mass at the Consecration is the very same words as set in stone by the dogmatic Council of Trent and codified to be said "in perpetuity" by His Holiness Pope St. Pius V.
Signed, sealed and delivered. Any variation from that, such as Vatican II changes, takes all bets off the table and verifies that they have "incurred the wrath of Almighty God and the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul" (Quo Primum). Any variation is not the Catholic Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and therefore nullifies the possibility of true Transubstantiation. It took us several years to discover this and we must all be patient as those who come after us struggle with the issues before them. After all, they most likely are asking themselves the very same thoughts we mulled over and prayed many, many hours about: "What if the sedevacantists are right? (see The Syllogism of Sedevacantism) What if, since 1968, there have been no true priests ordained unless they received Holy Orders according to the rubrics set down by Trent? (see Sacramentum Ordinis) And if there have been no true priests in the conciliar church for the past 40 plus years, who are those guys masquerading in Roman collars?"
The Gospel for this past Sunday, Good Shepherd Sunday, answers this all so clearly. In reading St. John 10: 11-16, apply the following questions to identify the hireling. Though Joseph Ratzinger is a true priest, is he a true bishop? Answer: No! If that is true, then he could he still be a true cardinal? No! Adding to this, is it really true he has deviated from the Faith as a manifest and persistent heretic. Yes! That leaves you with the final question. Then how can he be a true pope? The answer to that is very simple. He can't.
With those questions solved, the rest are obvious. With Ratzinger and his ilk being exposed more and more as the devious wolves in sheeps' clothing that they are, satan is losing his cover, losing his grip. As truth rises to the fore after so much deceit by the VulgArians, lucifer is aping that action by blowing his top, if you will. He's not a happy camper. Thanks to the prayers of the faithful few lambs who have refused to buy the wolf's ploy, the devil has to fight for souls.
So let's be prepared. Grab those rosaries and use this occasion to remind your neighbor of what a glimpse of hell looks like in the diabolic mushrooming ashes rolling across the sky, trying to block out Heaven above. When the lava winds blow, you may have to shut your windows. All the more reason to realize our window of opportunity to effect conversions is getting shorter and shorter. Other than appearing Himself, could the good Lord have given us a more sober sign than what we're seeing in the skies today? We better don those sackcloths soon and put on the garments of grace before it's too late because, right now, the devil's kicking ash!
