With me you might say it started the day May 13. Seems Our Lady had her finger on me.
Not to make a long story longer. After I got out of the Army, 1957, my folks had moved to L. A. So I went to L. A. to start my life again.
One day a Bible salesman came to the house and sold me a Papal edition Bible. At the time I was a party guy but thought that everyone should own a good Bible. Unfortunately in casually looking it over, the old and the new I felt it was contradictory.
I was working for a aircraft component company but when the Russians launched, there was a lay off. Since I had worked for bakery’s before I went back to them for work, but had to give up my Sundays. Some time later I had a boyhood friend visit with his girl friend who later became his wife. Continue reading →
CMRI has been lucky to have such a gifted priest as Father Casimir who is the Pastor of Mount St. Michael’s community and school. Very few of the Fathers are as charitable, kind and humble as Father Casimir. I knew his Father Jonas who at the time was promoting an anti Bolshevik magazine before the family moved to Spokane, Washington. May he have many days here on earth, or at least till Christ come back, ha.
This is one of many things that us tax payers are not aware of.
It’s August. Do you know where your Supreme Court is?
A good bet is that none of the nine justices are in Washington, D.C. As Chief Justice John Roberts once quipped: “Only Supreme Court justices and schoolchildren are expected to and do take the entire summer off.” (Roberts made that statement while serving as an attorney in the Reagan Administration.)

St. John the Baptist, Elias and God’s Kingdom
When John the Baptist appeared at the Jordan river, proclaiming that the kingdom of God was at hand (cf. Mt. 3:1-12; Mk. 1:2-8; Lk. 3:2-18) the Jews flocked to hear him. The expectation of the Promised Redeemer, the Messias, was strong at this time, and here was a Prophet announcing his proximate arrival and calling on the people to repent of their sins in order to be prepared to receive him. To stir their souls to a desire for moral purification John baptized his followers. It was not the sacrament of baptism instituted later by Christ, and had no value except in as far as it was accompanied by true interior sorrow for sin; its value in other words was dependent on the interior act of contrition. The Temple authorities in Jerusalem hearing of the multitudes who were flocking to John became interested, and perhaps alarmed, and they sent a delegation of Priests and Levites down to the Jordan to interrogate the Baptist.
The documents of Pope Pius XII concerning liturgical reform and it is nothing different than Pope St. Pius X–who was the one who started the movement. Will he be next on the list and then Pope St. Pius V? For Traditio it is a fight for their refusing to follow Pius XII’s Restored Holy Week Liturgy–and rejecting of Papal authority. Can you tell me that all the great theologians of the sixties who opposed the Novus Ordo and the first reference was always Pius XII’s Mediator Dei and Humani Generis–not John XXIII’s lying promise not to remove Latin while changing the liturgy. You have to remember that under Pius XII, anything that was Modernist was condemned and the perpetrator punished–just look at all the bishops thrown out of the Vatican by Pius XII and rewarded as Cardinals under John XXIII, all the theologians silenced by Pius XII and re-instated by John XXIII. John XXIII did not fire–he still worked on same commission–it was that he needed someone more acceptable and higher to promulgate his Conciliar vision. If John XXIII is aware of the so-called error of the Restored Liturgy, why did he not reject it? No, he changed the prayer for the conversion of the Jews so it would be more neutral because he knew what he was doing, establishing a syncretic church–and Traditio supports him? It was only two months after his election that he brought Bishop Montini into the Vatican and made him a Cardinal.From this point on Montini was running the show. One month later he called the council. Pope John XXIII was just a transition Pope and everyone new it.
Also you will find Pope John XXIII in the book of the Apocalypse chapter 9 as the one who opens the gates of Hell.
