Thoughts for the Fifth Day of Christmas: St John Henry Newman and the Lesson of Joy

The Lord! The Son of Mary !! Viva Cristo Rey !!



(continued from yesterday’s post: Thoughts for the Fourth Day of Christmas)

The second lesson is that of joy, as Newman relates.

“Fear not,” said the Angel, “for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” And then, when he had finished his announcement, suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men.”

Such were the words which the blessed Spirits who minister to Christ and His Saints, spoke on that gracious night to the shepherds,to rouse them out of their cold and famished mood into great joy;to teach them that they were objects of God’s love as much…

“The Mighty Have Sought After My Soul…”Ps:53

Pope Francis Has Become a Stranger To Me haurietisaquas

Strangers have risen up against me, Lord, and they have not set God before their eyes.”        Ps: 53  Pictured:  Eugenio Scalferi and Francis   

Pope Francis Speaks with a Forked Tongue and I Can’t Bear to Hear it Any More.        Take This Lie For Instance: He Denies the Incarnation … Behind a PayWall                                                                                                                                                           

 “According to the highly respected blog, Rorate Caeli, and Radio Spada in Italy, Scalferi states in the October 9 edition of LaRepublica (behind paywall) the following:  “Those who, as it has happened many times with me, have had the luck  of meeting him and speaking with the greatest cultural intimacy …

… know that Pope Francis conceives Christ as Jesus of Nazareth, man, not God Incarnate.

Scalfari continues:  “Once incarnate, Jesus stops being a God and becomes a man until his death on the cross.”

When I had the chance of discussing these sentences, Pope Francis told me, “They are the proven proof that Jesus of Nazareth, once having become a man, was, though a man of exceptional virtues, not at all a God.”  Once incarnate, Jesus stops being a God and becomes a man until his death on the Cross.” was a-man-not-a-god

Two Cities Have Two Tongues:   City of God and City of the devil                                         “The tongue of Satan also gives rise to its’ own culture.  We can see this in the way those who oppose the Gospel have ever acted:  denying the plain meaning of words, denying that words have meaning, denying that words mean things different than other words.

This attack on human language is a necessary technique of that Tongue which serves to break down the other by the employment of deception.

Marxists know this technique well and employ it to the fullest.

This technique gave rise to a false and misleading way of reading the Old Testament, so as to convince all who read it to deny that Christ was its’ fulfillment..  ‘                              

From the Web Site:  FROM ROME  by Brother Alexis Bugnolo                                             


With  all about me the clang of forked tongues ringing in my ear,  I pray to be given the grace to pray better in order to  work  out my salvation … although it be in ‘fear and trembling.’   I call upon my heavenly Mother … Mary Co-Redemptrix … Mary Mediatrix of All Grace … to be with me and remind me of what I am to do.  I sorely need reminders as I am immersed in chaos.  Dry my tears that fall for all my children and their children and their children … for when I am no longer here.   haurietisaquas









Father Gerald Fitzgerald Sings his ‘Song of Songs’ to Priests

Father Gerald was close to my husbands’ family and I am so blessed to have had a husband who grew up influenced by Father Gerald !

Father Gerald Fitzgerald graduated from Weymouth High School (MA) in 1912. At the same time my husbands’ Aunt May graduated from the same school.  Aunt May remained a single lady and became a school teacher,  taking  care of her parents in the big old white farmhouse on Broad St., as they were wont to do in those days.

Her friend, Gerald, felt the heart song from God soon after high school and eventually became a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross.

He was a frequent visitor at the home on Broad St. in the 1930’s and on …  as Aunt May’s brother Al, and his new wife Mildred moved into the family homestead which was now made into two apartments for their growing family of boys.  Old Gramma Sheehy lived there too.  I feel proud that her name was Mary Sheehy, same as mine.  My husband was one of those four boys who benefitted so … from knowing Father … who visited often.


“Father Fitzgerald left the Congregation of Holy Cross only because of a Divine touch of the Holy Spirit that had inspired in his priestly heart the seed of a specific and new charism in the life of the Church.”  Charles A. Schleck, C.S.C.  Titular Archbishop of Africa   Adjunct Secretary   Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples”  Forward to the book:

  Father John A. Hardon  ‘A Prophet For the Priesthood’ 

This book, by Father Hardon, was written about Father Gerald Fitzgerald,  precious family friend.

On With The Story

One night, as a newly ordained diocesan priest, Father Gerald sat alone at the kitchen table in  a rectory in Brighton, MA.   A knock at the door interrupted his supper.  A lone beggar stood on the snow covered wooden porch.  Father brought him into the warm kitchen and sat him down.  The man said, plaintively, that he just needed a bit to eat and some help with something.  There was something about him … 

Father brought him a steaming bowl of beef stew which had been left simmering on the stove, and, took the mans’ threadbare coat off to dry the wet snow off.  The anxious expression slowly faded as the man talked.  “”I am a priest” he finally said.

Father Gerald could scarcely take it in.  A priest?  In such dire straits?  His generous heart went out to the man as he let him talk.  Sadness came over the face of the priest as he told the story of his outcast from the parish in which he had served.  He told of his addiction to alcohol and other misdeeds.  His shivering thin form quieted, and, every once in a while a little smile tugged at his mouth.

It was the rehabilitation of this priest, aided and abetted by the generous heart of Father Gerald that planted the seed of his own true vocation within the vineyard of God.

I am not here to present the story of the life of Father Gerald Fitzgerald, as Father John Hardon has done so, and,  masterfully …  in his book.   I just wish to present some of Father Gerald’s words, which I truly consider to be  ‘Songs of Songs’ to Priests.

 Words From his Talks During his new life’s work:  Rehabilitation of Priests Who Were in Trouble.

“Holy Priests sanctify their people.  Unholy priests, except for a miracle of grace, turn people away from God.  It is true that no soul in all the world will be lost without its own deliberate and consummate folly.  Yet, for the soul in a parish where there is a saintly priest, his chances are multiplied a thousand fold.

“Young people who fall under the influence of a holy priest are strengthened to meet the temptations and dangers of the world for all their life.  God, after His own self …  after His own incarnate self …  has no more powerful means of saving souls than His priests.  As a matter of fact, He counts upon His priests to give His sacramental Self to the Mystical Body.”

“When we sanctify priests, when we put them back and make them what they ought to be, we are making the most vital contribution to the salvation of man and thus to the glory of God that can be made on earth.”

“Faith is what led us into the most sublime of our possessions, our priesthood.  It was our faith, especially in the real Presence and faith in what it meant to be a priest … to be in that sublime relationship to the Son of God … ”

“The most difficult cases we shall ever deal with in our apostolate will not be priests who are sinners but priests who have lost the faith.”  As later events were to prove, the most intractable persons to cope with, and they can be very learned, are men who had once believed in the Real Presence, and therefore in the priesthood, but lost faith in the Eucharist and therefore lost their sense of identity as priests.”

Speaking in 1955: ”  The social and psychological sciences are conspiring to reduce man to a mere robot, and his actions to the product of heredity, environment and education.  On these premises, Christianity becomes a myth and the function of sacraments and the priesthood a fraud.”  Father Harden adds about this quote:  “What Father Gerald saw here was the modern residue of what in the sixteenth century invaded the Western world as Calvinism.”

“The shadow of the Cross lies over every life.  It can’t be otherwise because only by the Cross can we be redeemed.  And the Cross is terribly hard unless we love the Corpus on it.”

“The Blessed Sacrament is for us the Corpus on the Cross.  It is for us.  It is for Mother and Father, brother and sister, and Bridegroom and Bride.  It is All.  Here is all the tenderness of the Eternal Father.  Here is the source of that little mysterious throbbing of you heart which means that you are living.”

Another Little Family Story

One day Cousin Ed and Aunt Marian,  who lived next door to my husbands’ family, were visited by Father Gerald.  Ed, a brother of Al, my Dad in law had built a big house and it was filled with happy children.  All the cousins grew up together knowing Father Gerald.

Young Cousin Ed was in the Navy.  It was during the Korean war. He was aboard a ship nearing the coast of China.

Coffee was being served in Aunt Marians big kitchen.  Several of the family were seated around the table with Father Gerald when suddenly a worried look came over his face.

“Marian” said Father Gerald, “you had better pray a lot for Ed today”

Nothing more was heard about this until Cousin Ed came home.

On that day, on which Father Gerald looked worried and asked for prayers for Ed, in the kitchen in Weymouth, Ed tells a story of a harrowing event.

On that day, at that time, it was announced that a torpedo was approaching their ship. They did what they could … zig zagging … and listening to the watch.  Ed could actually “see” the torpedo approaching in the water.  It went by the side of the ship, on which deck Ed was standing.  He said that as it went by, the ship rocked as though it were going to sink, but the torpedo missed them.  Nobody seemed to have had time to go down below or make any preparations … as it happened so fast. Ed said he could hear its’ propellers.

He wasn’t surprised when they told him about Father Geralds’ premonition.

My Thank You

Thank you, Father Gerald, for all you did for the Sheehy boys and girls.  Just knowing you as a friend helped to prepare them spiritually to live through ‘now’ … it has helped me just to hear about it, and, I was thrilled to hear of Father Hardon’s book.  Please pray for us all from your bright place near the face of God.

I am sorry for all the hardship you went through as you tried to help priests who, way back then, were getting lost.  Via Caeli, the Paracletes, Your island!  All taken away from you by those who thought you were mistaken or perhaps ‘rigid’ !!  It brings a tear.  My husband really loved you dearly.  He spoke often of you. Thanks to all those in the Church who appreciated him and thought and spoke so beautifully about him.

Thank you, Aunt May.  You took care of your parents.  You taught school.  And you helped Father Gerald financially as much as you could.  Pray for us!

The Vatican has now accepted that Bergoglio is an AntiPope

Utterly important news here! Please read this and, as the author asks. Please spread it to the whole Catholic world for the love of Jesus Christ!

My WordPress Site

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Rome: September 9, 2019 A. D.:  The Vatican has conceded that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is an AntiPope. The concession came tacitly as of Saturday, when, after 90 days since the publication of the news that Pope Benedict had accepted the arguments which demonstrated his resignation was invalid (as reported here), the Vatican took no action to discount the report.

The report was public knowledge at Rome, since it was 4 times accessed by computers at the Vatican (some of which were in the offices of the Secretary of State). In response, that office requested the Corriere della Sera to interview Pope Benedict in an attempt to get him to withdraw his tacit acceptance, with the admission on his part, that “The Pope is one, he is Francis”. The interview having failed to extract those words from Benedict — during an exchange of photographs…

Pope Francis Said: ” It is Foolisness to Declare Mary Co-Redemptrix”

cbf3e90042c164b0533ca9887d66e77f-690x450Rome -” Pope Francis appeared to flatly reject proposals in some theological circles to add “co-redemptrix” to the list of titles of the Virgin Mary, saying the Mother of Jesus never took anything that belonged to her Son, and calling the invention of new titles and dogmas “foolishness”.PF

So, my friends, forget the Fifth Marian Dogma, for whose declaration you have worked and prayed so long for, from one of our Post Conciliar Popes.  Is it possible, that Francis fears in his heart, that if he were to try to speak infallibly and pronounce Mary as Mediatrix – CoRedemptrix that, somehow, his words would not work?  That he may be embarrassed before the whole world by some Work of God when his words hit the microphones and flew back down his throat?    After all only the Pope can speak infallibly!     Haurietisaquas

“She never wanted for herself something that was of her Son,” Francis said.  “She never introduced herself as co-redemptrix.  No.  Disciple.” he said. Meaning that Mary saw herself as a disciple of Jesus.”PF

We know that on Golgotha “there stood by the Cross of Jesus His Mother”  (Jn. 19:25).  St. Maximillian teaches that “Mary, by the fact that she is Mother of Jesus the Savior, became the Coredemptrix of the human race.”  St. Maximilliam Kolbe

“Mary, the Pope insisted, “never stole for herself anything that was of her son,” instead “serving him.”  Because she is mother.  She gives life. ” PF

Mary never stole anything. The word is an insult when used next to her name. haurietisaquas

The title of Mary as “Co-Redemptrix” dates to the Middle Ages, and the idea of declaring it as a church dogma was discussed, though not adopted, at the Second Vatican council.  In the 1990s American Catholic theologian Mark Miravalle launched a petition asking the Pope to make such a declaration, and, today the ‘Co-Redemptrix” devotion tends to be strongest among more conservative Catholics.  Crux

What Francis Said is in line with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican doctrinal chief during most of St. John Paul II papacy, and now Pope emeritus Benedict XVI.  Crux

Speaking with Peter Seewald for the book-length interview published as ‘ God and the World:  A Conversation’,  the then Cardinal said:  “The formula Coredemptrix departs to too great an extent from the language of Scripture and of the Fathers, and therefore gives rise to misunderstandings.”BXVI

Au contraire, Your Emeritus Holiness, but it is the language of MODERNISM which gives rise to misunderstandings.  Haurietisaquas

Mary the print of La Morenita (little brunette) that stood tall in front and to the side of the altar made him (Francis) “think of three adjectives for Mary:  ‘woman-Lady-, Mother and Mestiza  (mixed race)”

“Mary introduces herself as a woman.”  PF said.  “And she introduces herself with the message of someone else.  Meaning, she’s a woman and she’s disciple.”

A true modernist would know, your Holiness.   How to introduce yourself with the message of someone else.  You do it all the time. And here also, we are getting to the crux of this thing…. If she is a woman and a disciple, then she is a woman and a priest. haurietisaquas

“Christian piety, throughout the ages, always sought to praise her with new titles.” Francis said.  “They were filial titles.” that expressed “the love of the people of God, but they did not touch in any way her being a woman disciple.”PF

Here Francis just got the term ‘woman disciple’ inserted again for an extra brainwash on us.  haurietisaquas

St. Ignatius, Francis said, liked to call the Virgin “Our Lady.”  According to the Argentine pontiff, “It is as simple as that.  She doesn’t expect anything else.  She’s a woman, she’s disciple.”

There you go again, Pope.  Four  times now.  Mary was a disciple.  So she can be a priest.  We’re gettin’ it!   haurietisaquas

St. Ignatius, Francis said, liked to call the Virgin Our Lady.  According to the Argentine Pontiff, “it is as simple as that.  She doesn’t expect anything else.  She’s a woman, she’s disciple.”

At Lourdes, Our Lady said “I am The Immaculate Conception.” So you see Your Holiness,  She does want more. She is the one and only creature born without original sin.  And God wants her to have more.  He wants Russia to be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.   She wants us to learn about Her and so does God.

The Pope also quoted St. Bernard who said that no praise is enough to talk about Mary, but that in the end, nothing is as representative of her ‘humble discipleship more than being faithful to her master, who is Her Son, the only Redeemer.

The Memore by St. Bernard  “Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to thy protection was left unaided …”  The power of Mary is inconceivable by mortal men!   haurietisaquas

The Pontiff then moved on to the next adjective,  that of “mother”  Mary is the Mother of all peoples.  To us all … of our hearts … of our souls … and also the mother of the Church.  and she’s also a “figure in the Church” PF

We cannot think about the Church without this Marian principle” he said.  “When we look for the role of the woman in the Church, we can go through the path of functionality, because the woman has functions to fulfill in the Church.  But that leaves us halfway. PF

“Mary woman, Mary Mother, without any other essential”  Francis insisted.  Even the litanies, recited at the end of the rosary, are titles given to her by her children who are in love with her and who sing to their mother.  But in the end, they don’t change that ‘essence’ of being ‘Mary, woman and mother.” PF

You forgot one, Your Holiness.  Mother of God.  haurietisaquas

The third adjective, the pope said means Mary becoming ‘mestiza’  to be the mother of everyone.  “She became ‘mestiza with humanity.  Because she made God mestizo.  And this is the great mystery.  Mary makes God a mestizo, true God but also true man.” ?(mestiza – mixed race)

“Mary is woman, Our Lady;  Mary is the mother of her Son and of the Holy hierarchical Church, a woman of our peoples but who made God a mestizo.” PF

“Mary is the mother of her Son….”  Why CAN’T you say it, Your Holiness … Mary is the Mother of God !  Her Son is God.   The Incarnation is DOGMA haurietisaquas
