Anything we do without offering it to God, is wasted.” -- St. John Vianney, The Curé of Ars

When next you hear some attack called an idle paradox, Ask after the dox.  Pursue the dox; persecute the dox. In short ask the dox whether it is orthodox.
---G.K. Chesterton, Daily News, October 28, 1911

God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?

In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: deliver me in thy justice.

The world was to be saved by the preaching of the Cross and on the Eucharist, and not by human wisdom or eloquence

The Rosary of the 7 Sorrows
of the Virgin Mary
as taught by the Blessed Mother in Kibeho
Introductory prayer:
My God, I offer you this Rosary for Your Glory,
so that I can honor Your Holy Mother, the
Blessed Virgin, so I can share and meditate
upon her suffering. I humbly beg You to give
true repentance for all my sins. Give me wisdom
and humility so that I may receive all the
indulgences contained in this prayer.
Act of contrition:
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having
offended You, and I detest all my sins, because I
dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell,
but most of all because they offend You, my
God, You who are all good and deserving of all
my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your
grace to confess my sins, to do penance, and to
amend my life. Amen.
Three “Hail Marys” are said in honor of the
Tears of Our Sorrowful Mother.
1. The prophecy of Simeon (Lk 2:22-35)
- One Our Father
- Seven Hail Marys
- “Most merciful Mother, remind us always
about the sorrows of your Son, Jesus.”
<--[Said after each mystery}
2. The flight into Egypt (Mt 2:13-15)
3. The loss of Jesus in the Temple
(Lk 2:41-51)
4.Mary meets Jesus on the Way to Calvary
(Lk 23:27-31)
5.Mary stands at the foot of the Cross
(Jn 19:25-27)
6.Mary receives the dead body of Jesus
(Jn 19:38-40)
7. Jesus is laid in the tomb (Jn 19:41-42)
Closing prayer: Queen of Martyrs, your heart
suffered so much. I beg you by the merits of the
tears you shed in these terrible and sorrowful
times, to obtain for me and all the sinners of the
world, the grace of complete sincerity and
repentance. AMEN.
Mary, who was conceived without sin and who
suffered for us, pray for us. (3x)

One should have an open mind...open enough that things get in, but not so open that everything falls out.

In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.

A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy.
