THESE PRAYERS ARE SAID EACH MIDNIGHT
IN FRONT OF THE BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE AT ROME

This devotion is inspired by the request made by Our Lady Herself in
Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Vision of

August 25, 1822: “I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Around it I saw crowds of poor, pious souls, in great distress and anxiety on account of the Pope’s disappearance and the agitation and alarming reports throughout the city. Led by one common impulse, they had come to invoke the Mother of God. They did not expect to find the church open, they intended only to pray outside. But I was inside, I opened the door and they entered, astounded at the door’s opening of itself. I was standing aloof where they could not see me. There was no service, only the chancel-lamps were burning, and the people knelt in quiet prayer. Then the Mother of God appeared. She said that great tribulations were at hand; that the people must pray earnestly with extended arms, if only for the length of three Our Fathers, for it was thus that her Son had prayed for them upon the Cross; that they should rise at midnight to pray thus; that they should continue to come to Her church which they would always find open; and that they should, above all, pray for the extirpation of the Church of Darkness. … I know not whether the people saw the apparition or not, but they must have been impressed by something supernatural for, when the Blessed Virgin said they should pray to God with arms extended, all lifted up their arms … It seemed to be an association of prayer.” From this time Sister Emmerich assisted nightly at the pious exercises at Santa Maria Maggiore. (The Life and Revelations of Ann Catherine Emmerich, Book 2)

(Prayers will be said in Italian, Black, and English: Blue)

In Nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

* Salus populi Romani, is Latin, for The Salvation of the Roman People. It is the ancient title of the Icon of Our Lady see at the top of this article.

The Bilderbergs wanted a Virus to kill the elderly because …

by Peter

There is a reason that they made sure that people believe that the elderly are the most at risk from this ‘Covid’ fraud. With the next ‘wave’ or the next ‘virus’ they’ll say “we did it wrong last time, so this time we need to round-up and isolate the 65+ crowd and let the rest get on with their lives”. People will think this is a great idea (they get to keep working, etc) , not knowing that the elderly people (anyone 65+) will be sent to their deaths. Then the B.S. story will be that the 2nd wave was just too strong to defeat and it ravaged 90% of the elderly.

Do you know why they want to do this? Look into what Catherine Austin Fitts wrote many years ago. She worked in the Reagan/Bush-1 White-House and she said many years ago that all of the money had been stolen from all of the pension funds and everyone’s retirement fund was gone. She said that Wall Street’s plan was to kill-off the elderly so that they would never have to make good on all of the pensions that were stolen, and they won’t have to provide care for the elderly.

Now in 2020, the USA (and many other countries) are using the ‘corona crisis’ to try to establish a new monetary system and eventually introduce a new currency; well, let me advise you, the new currency won’t last 10 years if they have to immediately print-up enough money to reimburse all of the elderly for their stolen pensions and provide medical care until their natural deaths.

So when you hear about how it is necessary for your elderly parents, siblings, etc to be taken to containment centers for their own protection, remember that their fate is already sealed if they are taken. They will be put to death all in the name of securing the viability of the new monetary system.

Peoples’ pensions do die with them except in certain scenarios where the spouse is allowed to continue to receive part of it. Remember, the spouse is usually virtually the same age and would have fallen under their planned ‘euthanasia’ scheme too. And it’s the pensions, not the money/assets of the deceased which are of importance here. The pensions of, and the cost of care for, the elderly are the unfunded liabilities which would bring down the new monetary system very quickly.

You immediately doom any monetary system when you make it commence its lifespan by the mass-printing of new money to fill in the gaps left by the now-defunct previous system; it puts the new system right back under the same duress which finally made the old system implode.

The Crusader Option

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Back on December 12, 2013, in the year after Benedict was pressured to resign (Swift, Deutsch Bank etc.), Rod Dreher floated the idea of the Benedict Option.

The Benedict Option, according to him, was a possible solution to the problem of the Cultural War in the West against Catholics and the life of faith. The Benedict Option was called such, because like Saint Benedict of Nursia, who fled Rome and went up to the heights of Monte Cassino, to found his thereafter world famous Monastery of Cassino, the strife and struggle presented to Catholics in urban life made it reasonable to propose that Catholics, like Saint Benedict, flee the cities and turn toward rural living, in small faith communities focused around Monasteries or Religious centers.

Dreher was not inventing a movement, however, he was simply putting a name on it. But his description was not too dissimilar to suggestions of Fabian Socialists like G. K. Chesterton, who though he did convert to the Catholic Faith, never renounced entirely his socialism.

As an anthropologist I chuckled when I heard Dreher’s idea. For I know well that man, when he moves, does not leave his culture behind, and because, in 2000 A. D., I had visited just such a community in Arkansas, where there was no less a lack of paradisaic virtue as you find in cities. In fact, everyone there had in a certain sense been victims of a land swindle, since they did not hold registered titles to their land but had bought and built on the basis of private agreements from a man who did not own the land, but who used the publicity of a Catholic community, to lure Catholics down from Chicago into buying land from a local non-Catholic, whom some said was a Freemason.

But as a Franciscan, I chuckled even more, because I know that the worst temptations that afflict a man are not those one can flee from. He takes them with him, wherever he goes, because they sprout from his pride. And mere geographical displacement does not distance them. Monks and Religious who forsake the world obtain Christian liberty not by the geographical displacement involved in their decision, but by the renunciation of the carnal way of looking at life and the complete consecration of their persons to Christ our God. Laymen, married or not, who think they can obtain that liberty by moving near a Monastery while not renouncing family, jobs, careers, etc.. are simply committing a grave mortal sin of spiritual presumption.

And when you encounter such communities, you readily understand what I am speaking of. They are frequently wrought by great internal dissension and conflict. As was recently revealed in a Church Militant Exposé about one community in Idaho, which seemed the next paradise on Earth, but turned out to be plagued with pedophiles.

For this reason, I think Dreher’s proposal was totally naive and not to mention unworkable since there are now so few sound Monastic establishments anywhere in the world.

The Crusader Option

But there is another option, which is not born of naiveté nor of an unrealistic assessment of the signs of the times, and that is what I call the Crusader Option.

The Crusader Option is one in which the Catholic man dedicates himself to Catholic militancy in every aspect of his life. This option is a true path to virtue, because it involves fulfilling one’s duties, in accord with one’s state of life, while confronting the sources of his own personal temptations and failings head on: his pride to seek to live for himself alone.

The Crusader Option proposes that the Catholic Man stop talking about being a man, and start acting like a Crusader; that he stop lamenting the problems of the world, and start solving them.

And since all the problems in the world right now are arriving and concentrating on one thing, it is that problem first of all which needs to be solved. And its solution which represents the Crusade that Catholic men must pledge themselves to with all the vigor, courage, faith and zeal of the Crusaders of old.

And what is the focus of all the problems in the world right now?

The mass enslavement of mankind by a Satanic, Technocrat, Marxist Sanitary Dictatorship, run by fakes, shills, frauds and not a few international pedophile network participants. An enslavement which has been planed and is now being executed by the coordinated efforts of most national governments, assisted with the near complete consensus of international corporations in all industries.

And how to solve that problem?

It is not solved by only one response, but by a panoply of responses, just as in a bar room slug-out in olden times, you did not solve the problem by pointing a finger, but by uniting fingers and thumb in a fist and using them in a coordinated counter-attack.

And here, I would, as a Rhetorical Example which does not include all other necessary things, name the 5 need responses:

  1. Founding Catholic political parties faithful to Christ in every nation.
  2. Founding Catholic Institutions (Churches, Banks, Schools, independent Seminaries etc.) in every nation, which oppose Globalism and the NWO and Sanitary Dictatorship.
  3. Founding Catholic Corporations in every sector of the economy, who do the same.
  4. Founding fortified Catholic communities in the countryside in every nation, to be the centers for activities 1, 2, 3 and 5.
  5. Establishing training camps to train the general Catholic male population in the martial arts and self defense, so as to be prepared to defend fellow Catholics in the coming push to mass genocide of those who resist the New World Order.

My proposal, here, will be a direct challenge to all the vain, self-indulgent, will-fully deceived, group-think tolerant, narrative-controlled, wussies who pose as men and spend their days on social media pretending as Catholic men, but being nothing of the kind.

But, I make this proposal, nevertheless, because I know that the number of real Catholic men, who have hearts like true fathers, and are not drinking the cool-aid, will always outnumber the talking heads and media personalities who make their living and fortune raking in the money by milking the ears of witless Catholics.

But the Crusader Option is not so much an option but a duty and necessity. Because in this battle those who do not take this option, will perish spiritually and physically.

War has come to us, unwillingly. But now that it has come, we must be willing to take up the fight! Deus Vult!

Wearing the Mark of the Beast

“…and no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark, the number, or the name of the beast.”
Revelations 13:17

by Laramie Hirsch

As I said way back in March, people are going to come to obsess about the Coronavirus. You know, that Chinese Flu that was first cooked up in a North Carolina lab, exported up into Canada, and then later smuggled into a Wuhan bio lab?  By now, most people understand the idea of a pandemic. However, the biggest reactionaries to this—more than the average person—are corporations.  The Catholic Church is no exception, as it’s capitulated to this great fear faster than anyone else.  And, of course, let’s now forget the Left as a whole, which idolizes the transformation of society through oppressive systemic controls. Covid-19 is a wondrous opportunity for them.

Since these institutions are in control of just about everything, you can now only buy, sell, or trade with the mark of this beast.  And that mark of submission? It is the very mask you have to wear in public. It is doubly punitive to those people who are forced to wear the mask for entire shifts at their job, only to have to continue to wear it when they go to the store to buy what they need. That is not to say that we are wearing the literal “mark” for the literal “Beast of Revelations,” although it is clear to most faithful Catholics that we are trapped beneath an oppressive system that is anti-Christ.  There can be no doubt about that.  Yet, we can say certainly that we are wearing a type of mark for a type of beast.  

And so, we find ourselves in an excellent training ground for what is to come. While these times may be a dress rehearsal for enemies who excitedly wait for the final last gasp of Christian resistance, these days can also serve as a training ground for the rest of us. Yet, what do we see when we go out in public?  We see almost complete capitulation and submission. To refuse to wear the mask is to become an outlier and a pariah.  If you dare to go into a store and not wear the mask, you will be like Charlton Heston discovering that “Soylent Green is people,” or Officer Logan 5, who just discovers that people can live past their middle age years without having to be euthanized.  You become a member of an out-group.

For now, the punishment is social ostracization and the denial of commerce.  In some places, though, online video shows people are physically restrained and arrested for not wearing the mark.

Pay Homage To The Gods

As we proceed into the 21st-century, it becomes increasingly clear that Americans idolize their technology. They give themselves completely to creature comforts, vice, convenience, and all the baubles offered by extremely powerful corporations.  This arrangement has put extremely wealthy and influential organizations and corporations in a kind of divinity status. On paper, they are simply businesses that are doing well economically. But in practice, these organizations are like the ancient Caesars who thought themselves demigods.

Everyone must pay homage to these Caesars. All must submit to the imperial cult.  The masses must bring forth divine honors to their leader, corporate America.  For, the super organisms we call corporations have actually morphed and coagulated into one, single, mono-organism. For big business, solve et coagula has been accomplished. And this multi-headed hydra, this oligarchy, has attained a status similar to Caesar’s divi filius, which translates to “divine son”, or son of a god.  And who can deny this idea that these companies who sell you soft drinks and digital movies ultimately pay homage to the Dark Prince, himself—the Evil One who fancies himself as the god of the universe?  Are Christians not told year after year to boycott most of the commercialized products peddled to us on a minute-by-minute basis?  Don’t these companies take part in a kind of secular religion that honors homosexuality, abortion, feminism, globalism, and other modernist ideals?

Modern American commerce is a “cult of the emperor”, and it is not hard to figure out the nature of this religion—particularly when we consider all of the recent rumors swirling around these past few years of satanic, pedophile sacrifices taking place among the very powerful and monied powers of our society. Corporate America has become your imperial deity, much like the Caesars of old.

Christians vs The Imperial Deity

It would do well for us to remember the times of the ancient Romans, when the first Christians began to spread the message of Christ throughout Rome.  Many have heard stories about early Christianity, but many also have forgotten the literature:

The Christians were not so fortunate. Yet their position was logical and was clearly and consistently maintained. They honored the emperor as ruler but declined to recognize him as a god. This distinction the Roman authorities refused to admit. They insisted that the worship of the national gods and the emperor in particular was the duty of every citizen and that to refuse was an act of disloyalty. Hence the mere profession of Christianity was regarded as a crime against the state. One who was accused of that crime might clear himself by the simplest act or word implying reverence for the gods or acceptance of the divinity of the emperor. Several notable instances are recorded in which this test of loyalty was applied to the Christians. Pliny in his well-known letter to Trajan reports that as governor of Bithynia he required them to worship the gods and to offer wine and incense before the emperor’s statue. Polycarp, the aged bishop of Smyrna, when commanded by the proconsul as the condition of his release, to swear by the Genius of the emperor, replied, “You do not know what I am. I am a Christian.” 

The Biblical World, Volume 40, edited by William Rainey Harper, Ernest DeWitt Burton, and Shailer Mathews

The Christians would not be tolerated. They were ordered to worship caesar as a god and add a pinch of incense to the fire in his honor.  It was just a simple little thing.  They could have done this, and moved on to take advantage of the fruits of the Roman Empire.  After all, it was not as if these early Christians were like Roman pagan families who participated in private worship, burning incense before the images of the emperor and leaving offerings of food and drink to him and the other household gods. And it was not as if these early Christians were rushing to take part in elaborate and costly public worship rituals of their ruling “demigod.”

Yet, quite a few of those early Christians gave in.  They avoided sacrificing themselves and completely betrayed their loyalty to Christ, as we can see in the exchange between Pliny and Trajan:

Meanwhile, in the case of those who were denounced to me as Christians, I have observed the following procedure: I interrogated these as to whether they were Christians; those who confessed I interrogated a second and a third time, threatening them with punishment; those who persisted I ordered executed. For I had no doubt that, whatever the nature of their creed, stubbornness and inflexible obstinacy surely deserve to be punished. There were others possessed of the same folly; but because they were Roman citizens, I signed an order for them to be transferred to Rome.

Soon accusations spread, as usually happens, because of the proceedings going on, and several incidents occurred. An anonymous document was published containing the names of many persons. Those who denied that they were or had been Christians, when they invoked the gods in words dictated by me, offered prayer with incense and wine to your image, which I had ordered to be brought for this purpose together with statues of the gods, and moreover cursed Christ–none of which those who are really Christians, it is said, can be forced to do–these I thought should be discharged. 

Others named by the informer declared that they were Christians, but then denied it, asserting that they had been but had ceased to be, some three years before, others many years, some as much as twenty-five years. They all worshipped your image and the statues of the gods, and cursed Christ.

They asserted, however, that the sum and substance of their fault or error had been that they were accustomed to meet on a fixed day before dawn and sing responsively a hymn to Christ as to a god, and to bind themselves by oath, not to some crime, but not to commit fraud, theft, or adultery, not falsify their trust, nor to refuse to return a trust when called upon to do so. When this was over, it was their custom to depart and to assemble again to partake of food–but ordinary and innocent food. Even this, they affirmed, they had ceased to do after my edict by which, in accordance with your instructions, I had forbidden political associations. Accordingly, I judged it all the more necessary to find out what the truth was by torturing two female slaves who were called deaconesses. But I discovered nothing else but depraved, excessive superstition.

From a Letter by Pliny the Younger to Emperor Trajan, in approx. 112 AD

The wishes of corporate moguls are strapped across the mouth of everyone’s face. Many people now realize that the medical mask fiasco has nothing to do with a virus. For most people, those deemed “asymptomatic“, they do not even notice that this bio weapon is in their system. It is a benign phenomenon, observable only by chemical testing. Less than a half a percent of the people with this virus die. It has been shown that hospitals and governments are inflating the death count in order to score higher numbers. Yet, Americans continue to wear the mask, fearful of one another’s cooties.

The Romans did not distinguish their religion from their politics. Religion was a function of the state. And so, too, is it with us. We live under a “sanitary dictatorship,” as Bishop Athanasius Schneider once called it. And the dark sacrament for the New Wisdom is to cover your face, become a part of the herd, and cancel out your individuality.

Defy Caesar’s Claim To Divinity

Corporations, governments, and the corrupted hierarchy of the Catholic Church—these principalities and powers, all of them, have turned the facemask issue into a religio-political situation. They have abolished normal society and transformed everyone and everything into a desolate abomination of its former self. The 21st Century has become a Bizzaro Land nightmare for any time travelers unfortunate enough to land here. And to make sure that you comply with Caesar’s edict, there is a legion of Karens, hall monitors, tattletales, and neo-Stasi acolytes just waiting to turn you in, slap you around, shame you in public, and write you citations for non-compliance.

This must not stand. This must be protested. This must be resisted.

If the people of our society do not resist this new cult in all-but-name-only, then we have witnessed “the camel nose under the tent.” Once that camel raises his head and starts walking around in the tent, your world will be mangled and destroyed forever. Therefore, civil disobedience and defiance must be put into practice. If you must shop at a store, and a “health officer” tries to make you conform, make a scene. Do not let the moment pass without doing anything. The time to be bold is now. The time to be the salt of the Earth has arrived. Put away your cowardice, and do not be afraid to let everyone else know that two plus two is four.

Walking around without a facemask in a masked-up world can be unnerving. It makes one feel like the only human being on the Planet of the Apes. You silently ask yourself, “What the hell is wrong with these people?” Meanwhile, the muzzled masses continue looking down at their phones. Do not be scared. I am with you in this. A lot of us are. You are not the only one. Your refusal to submit to pressure shows that you have a powerful will to do what is sane. It demonstrates that while most are weak, you are not. This simple act of not giving in will become a more commonly discussed topic in the future. Be at the head of the wave. Ahead of the curve. The tip of the spear.

When you go out in public, and you see everyone in a facemask, know that everyone there is not afraid of germs. Realize that everyone hiding behind a face diaper is not terrified of a virus. They are wearing it so that they do not look out of place. They are wearing them so that they will not become a pariah. Bring your own face with you, and remind the cowards that they were human beings once. Your spiritual ancestors, the first Christians, did this very thing. Your opportunity has arrived today.

You owe nothing to corporate America. Caesar is not a god.
