Wonderful interview with  Pastor Che, whose father (as a pastor) was a prisoner of war in North Korea!  The state of California, under Gavin Newsom, similarly persecuted him and his church this last year.  He was threatened with  millions of dollars in fines for continuing to hold Christian services, until the Supreme Court upheld the right of his people to worship God.

THE ST. JUNIPERRO SERRA CLUB

Fr. Serra

ST. JUNIPERRO SERRA, PRAY FOR US!

Father of the Missions, beloved missionary and advocate for the peoples of the Southwest, please help us to bring Christ’s message of love and peace to a hurting world.

Oh, holy Saint, who was so strong and fearless, who was undeterred by illness, infirmity or hardship in your quest to bring  God’s Truth, Beauty and Goodness to Your people, help us to bring God’s message of hope to everyone we meet.  Help us to speak out against injustice. Help us to encourage those who have lost hope and do not know the One Who made them, Who loves them and who put them on this earth at this place and time for a reason. Help us to teach them so that they may  know and love God and  follow the great calling that He has for them.

Please pray for us, that we  have courage in the face of persecution, that we bring light where there is darkness, that we bring truth to those who are being deceived, that we bring hope to those who are despondent, and that we bring God’s love to everyone, no matter the cost to ourselves.

Help us to be fruitful as you were fruitful, to build lives that shine the beauty of God to all just as you shone the beauty of God in every church, in every person whom you touched with His presence, in  every community that you founded that thrived in beauty and goodness because you had been there.

May God bless and help us always, and may He guide us safely through the storms of life and keep us in His loving care, until we are Home with Him forever.

We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

*******************************************************************

Asking for the intercession of St. Juniperro Serra, I’d like to invite you to the St. Juniperro Serra Club, a club that involves not necessarily meetings or organized activity, but a commitment of the heart. It began on his feast day, July 1, 2020, and stems from a reading of the 1958 Communist Goals, 45 of them, that were devoted to destroying the great country of America by chipping away at her integrity, her unity, her morality and her faith in God.  These goals have nearly all been completed, and you see the effects in the crumbling of our culture before our very eyes, and the chaos and corruption that always results from a society that turns its back on God.

This Communist defiance towards God is symbolized as it has always been symbolized, with a clenched fist thrust towards God.  This fist has symbolized abject misery in every culture it has overtaken. And in our own it is only lightly disguised with fraudulent enticements to exploit its most recent “useful idiots’ who think they are working for something else but who are actually working for Marxist revolution and the lying spirit that guides it.  I say only lightly disguised, because the violence towards all that is good and true and beautiful, and especially towards the cultural and spiritual monuments to God Himself, His mother and His saints illustrate well the true meaning behind their mission.

St. Juniperro Serra was a courageous, dedicated missionary, who brought the love of Jesus Christ to the American Southwest. He encountered many difficulties and infirmities but never let them deter him from his mission.  He is the perfect patron saint of this movement, which is dedicated to pushing back on the 45 Goals that destroyed America and creating 45 Goals to restore America, to bring her back to God, to strengthen her families, to meet lies with truth and injustices with justice.  The commitment is to do whatever you can, using whatever skills, talent or life situation you have to accomplish this task.

We all have gifts; some are prayer warriors, others can write, some teach and others can speak out, still others can create works of beauty and grace in art or music.  The commitment is to use your talents in the pursuit of Truth, Beauty and Goodness—in the pursuit of peace and unity of all Americans by rising up against the forces that are attacking and dividing us, destroying us from within.

If you are an artist or have authority to erect monuments or works of art (even in the home), for every statue of Mary or Jesus,  of the Saints or the Ten Commandments that are destroyed by criminals, put two in their place.  In addition to rebuilding the monument, add a painting, a sculpture, or if you are a writer, publish a book about the one who was attacked, whom the vandals thought they had destroyed. Whatever you can do to bring beauty and culture back to America, do it.

Others are prayer warriors—so very, very important, especially today. If you can, gather together to pray. Go to Mass, go to church, pray the Rosary every day.  Pray online with others every day at websites such as Lifesitenews’ daily Rosary or the website comepraytherosary.org.  Pray, pray, pray and ask for God’s help during this difficult time.  There is no more powerful weapon than prayer, no more wonderful mission than this. Even if you have little time, just make the commitment to pray—-pray a Rosary every day, pray a Chaplet of Divine Mercy,  or just pray every day on your own in your own way.  And God bless you!

Another may be moved to  S.P.E.A.K.—Silent Patriots Emerge As American Knights (for Truth, Beauty and Goodness).  The Communist goal, to infiltrate the press, has been achieved in many different places, not just within prominent publications but also within the Internet providers that either censor or promote ideas based upon their leftist ideology.  So this commitment is dedicated to encouraging the silent majority to begin talking—to take to the comment sections and social media, to write blogs or articles, to do whatever you can to dispel the darkness of lies. Make the commitment to respectfully speak up instead of remaining silent, of course following the laws, leading with evidence and using logic and truth to clarify the lies that seem to dominate due to the seemingly insurmountable power of the press.

The truth is, they are not insurmountable, but only a small fraction of extremists with strategic power.   The reality is that we are more than they. We are called the “silent majority” for a reason.  Let’s get rid of the “silent” part of that description.  Leftists are a paper tiger, like the Wizard of Oz pulling the strings ,  seeming to be huge while actually being very few and very weak.

The illusion has been created because we have just been too timid to say anything to rebut the lies, and the result has been disastrous. So our commitment is now—to not allow a lie to stand or an unjust “cancel culture” attack to go unchallenged. Teach other people how to comment, to use social media, to speak to their friends.  Have the courage to speak to your own  friends about the issues, even those whom you may disagree with, and enlighten those who have been deceived by the almost constant barrage of propaganda that is disseminated by the mainstream media. Your friends will listen if you provide the truth and the facts and do it kindly.  It is very scary but you can change peoples’ minds—you can even change peoples’ lives—by telling the truth.

Some may be parents and husbands and wives.  You are more important now than ever before.  You hold the lives and souls of your children in your hands.  Teach them well. Help them to know and love God.  Eat meals together as a family. Talk about what is taught in their schools.  And tell them the truth about some of the false ideas they may be learning.

Wives and husbands, your marriage is the glue that holds society together. Cherish each other. Build your relationship, look lightly on the faults of your spouse and more severely on your own faults.  Know that you are one body, and as the family goes, so goes the nation.  Know that marriage is not a 50-50 proposition, but 100-100 percent giving of yourselves.  Stay together.  Pray together. Pray as a family.  Have Christ as the 3rd partner in your marriage. Know that the absolute greatest gift you can give your children is your love and commitment to each other.

Some are educators.  Teachers, teach the truth.  And when you see a lie, cure it with the truth. Speak out against teachers who exploit their students, gaslighting them, making them feel as if they are victims and the whole world is oppressing them. Making them feel as if they will always be victims and can never have the power to control their own lives and destinies, who make them feel that any effort to better themselves is futile and hopeless.  Such teachers have created young people who see no future for themselves—who believe that the only way forward is to destroy the world around them.   The truth ennobles young people and enables them to live fruitful lives, to be a blessing to their communities, their families and themselves.  A lie destroys young lives.

Yesterday’s graduates built America and made it great, today’s graduates, heavy-laden with debt, hopeless and angry, paranoid and stunted, indoctrinated with self-defeating lies that make them less able to live in the real world than when they entered college, firebomb cars.   Don’t let that happen to the young people at your college or your high school–or even your grade school.  Have the courage to speak out against evil and to be a good steward of the important task you have been given, to guide young lives into becoming the people whom they were meant to be.

And teach.  There is a wealth of wisdom and beauty in our culture, in our western heritage and in the Word of God.  Teach the great books, the great ideas, the true wisdom that creates a well-lived life.  Focus on those things and do not waste time on the trivial, banal or even evil.  Make a commitment to do good with the talents and knowledge that you have been given and are able give to others.

If you are in politics or law, fight for the good.  Fight with all of your might!  There are many evil laws today that have taken hold in our culture.  It is not enough to chaff against them and take a defensive stance.  Our laws permit the murder of little children!—fight against it with all of your might.  Follow the lead of great men and women who fought against evil in their day—people like William Wilberforce, who was a lone voice in his passionate fight against slavery.

If you are a lawyer, keep pushing the laws back to what is right.  Fight for the rights of all human beings, from conception to natural death.  Fight against the evil trend that we have seemed to accept, a trend that was the Communist Goal of taking God out of the town square, prayer out of schools, prayer out of our society.   It is not enough to win small victories.  We need to put God back into the center of town, into the center of our lives again.  As we can see today, we really did need God in order to be good people.  We really did need the 10 Commandments in order to not do the things that are prohibited by them.

And fight for the right to pray.  We have a God-given right to pray wherever we are whenever we want.  The Constitution has been bastardized to reflect the exact opposite of what it intended.  It was designed to protect our right to pray, to worship God, not to take our opportunities to do so away from us.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel or do this on your own.  If you can do nothing else, support the great charities that do this good work—that fight for the rights of others, especially the unborn and the elderly or infirm to live, that aid others in need, that go to court to battle for what is right.  Support politicians who do these things as well and help them, or help to fund them in their quest to do justice. Vote for those who fight for the rights of every human being.  Be a part of organizations that have already been established to do a good work.  Just commit to finding some way to do that good work, or some way to support it.

Finally,  work for peace.  There are dark forces out there who are trying to pit us against each other using tactics like quick, emotion-producing quips and memes that “rub raw the sores of resentment” and  rush us to a “side” without thinking.  And they do it over and over and over again in quick succession so that people tend to see themselves as part of a group versus people who think independently, deeply and rationally about issues.

So when speaking in these forums (like social media sites), it is important to be kind, to lead with the evidence, and to appeal beyond the tactics used by the propagandists who are trying to “divide and conquer” us through that division. It is important to make connections beyond the emotional subjects that are discussed—the images and sayings that knee-jerk people to one side or another —in order to overcome the wall of resistance that propaganda has built between us.  It is also important to create communities that won’t disappear when someone pulls out a plug.  The community food sharing parties (“Jar-Den” parties) might be helpful in that regard.

These are only a few of the things that you can do as a member of the St. Juniperro Serra Club.  It is again just a commitment of the heart.   We ask for the intercession of this great saint, and ask for his strong and beautiful missionary determination to succeed in restoring this beautiful country back to the greatness that founded her.  God bless you, and I hope that you join me in this quest.

Isaiah 58:12

“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins, and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”

 

 

 

 

We Can Change the World

CSC_0431“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Can you guess who said this? It was Margaret Mead, the anthropologist.

Wise words indeed.

And it is so true.  As I look at the news tonight, and see that the House Democrats just voted in a bill that checks off another Communist goal, “transfer powers of arrest from police to social agencies,” my heart begins to pound and I feel panicked.  The truth is, looking at how many of the goals the Communist movement has already achieved in this country  and the weird things that are happening right now, I am scared.

So many very strange things have been happening recently: the dangerous suspension of our rights and transferring of  almost whimsical power to low level bureaucrats, the weird collaboration of government agencies and the media to do things that are unthinkable, such as  looking at rioters who loot and destroy and kill and doing nothing to stop it or to keep us safe.  The government sits on its hands and the media praises the mob. If that’s not weird, I don’t know what is.

And then there are the “swatters,” the ones who  destroy people’s lives, their jobs, their reputations on very, very flimsy evidence as if they are trying to get these people out of the way.  And the media is complicit in the beat downs to the level of providing the supporting propaganda.  Some call it Cancel Culture, others call it terrorism. Whatever it is called, it is a horrible injustice for these people, and no one is standing up for them.

Then there’s the annihilation of our history and our culture by vicious mobs tearing down and burning our cities and monuments.  In the back of my mind I know that cultural annihilation is an integral part of  every fascist-socialist revolution— including Hitler’s in WW2 —since time began. This is not good.   Add to that the unremitting stream of bizarre events that seem to be orchestrated to keep us all off-kilter and  frightened, even imprisoned— when it is common sense that society should be starting to open up, freedoms should be restored and life should be getting back to some semblance of normalcy right now.

And now tonight the House votes in a bill that will decimate the only protection that we have on our side, the local police, and gives the power over us to a social agency whom I’m sure will be made up of the same people who are trying to bring down our society and our culture.

When I look at the Communist goals that were listed so many years ago and see how many of them have already been accomplished, and one more tonight with the Democrat’s vote to transfer the local firepower of the police who are there to protect us to a social agency run by Communists -(-actually, two more goals accomplished as it also fulfills the Communist goal of takeover of at least one American political party), I am terrified that we are at the tail end of a very long quest by the Communists to take over this country.  I fear that we are in the middle of a Communist revolution that shows no signs of abating and  I wonder where we will be by next year and under whose control. Maybe the Democrats don’t care that Joe Biden can’t put two coherent sentences together because they know there will be no election in November.

But I’m trying to look at the bright side.  I also see that what this means is that I need to step up and take a stand.  Maybe the people in charge of the mainstream media have taken it irrevocably to the left and become a part of this problem, but that does not mean that I can’t use my voice to oppose them.  With comments and blogs and any other way to get my message across, I can be a part of the solution, not just by  defending America from the Communists who want to destroy it, but by taking the offense and pushing back on the goals which they think they have a lock on right now.

If their plan was to infiltrate the schools and teach anti-American garbage, my plan is to do whatever I can to teach the truth to people in every way, including about the greatness of our country and her founders.

If their plan is to take God out of our culture, my job is to bring Him back as an integral part of our lives, and to do whatever I can to help to bring us back to Him in order to restore the goodness in our souls.

If their plan is to tear apart families and small children in the womb, to take fathers out of the home and demoralize and belittle men and their role in society, then I can push back and show how important men are to our society and how vital the family is to the integrity of — to the very survival of — all of us.

I remember people used to say that promiscuity doesn’t hurt anyone.  But they were wrong.  The truth is  it destroys everyone, because a part of the reason why we are being attacked by Communists is due to the decay of our integrity, which has severely weakened us a nation. Communists are hyenas, vultures, roaches—feeding on the dying carcass of our American culture. They could not have gotten this far if we were a strong, good and moral country.

“America is great because America is good,” said Alexis de Tocqueville. “And when America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

It’s time to regain that goodness and that greatness be a part of the new American movement—the Resistance.  It’s time to push back, take a stand, start talking, start acting, and start combating the evil. . Time to organize and send those darned Communists back to Hell where they came from. Time to turn around, to turn back to God, to our roots, to our values, back to the freedom that so many have sacrificed their lives for and back to the laws that were put in place so many years ago by brilliant men who were aware of the evil that is trying to encroach upon us and that threatens to swallow us up whole right now.

I vow to resist the Communists, no matter what it takes.

In Genesis 18:32 Abraham bargains with God, asking Him to forego His wrath on the city.  Abraham asked God, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten (good people) can be found there?”

And God relents and agrees that for the sake of the 10, He would not destroy the city.

I’ve always envisioned this as a kind of magic wand thing.  God  could bring it down to smite the city,  but because of those 10  He decided not to use it.

But after looking at the situation we are in now, I wonder if this is really what that passage means? Look at the Communist goals; every single one of them is about attacking our integrity, our morality, our connection with God and each other.   The goals that they accomplished made us more promiscuous, broke apart our families, broke apart our relationships, made us no longer desire goodness, truth and beauty, and got rid of our connection to God and our duty to follow His laws. In other words, the goal of all of these things was to destroy our integrity in order to get us to crumble into decay.  And at the point of decay, when we were so weakened by our lack of integrity,  they began their attack in earnest, certain that we would be too weak to overcome their attempts to crush us.

Look at what is going on right now. I will explain more about the con job that the Marxist trained organizers are playing on us in later posts, but it’s kind of easy to see the absurdity of the things that deceive us.  We fall for manipulated words—for reacting without thinking to their gaslighting of us. We fall like lemmings for the propaganda, for actually very silly, very obviously false propaganda that they’ve convinced us of because of a few tricks they learned  in community organizing school.

And we’ve got real problems with morality beyond not being able to think clearly.  We kill our children so that we can have unrestricted pleasure, we are too cowardly to speak out against injustice or even take a stand against human rights abuses by just refraining from buying cheap trinkets from a country with a horrible record of that sort of thing.  We allowed God to be removed from every aspect of our culture and are even codifying immorality and child murder in our laws.  We did not object strongly enough to the removal of the 10 Commandments in the public square because we thought we’d be good people without them, and we were so wrong. Why not steal and burn and kill? Who is to say those things are wrong without God’s word?

Poor countries are generally poor due to corruption. Poor countries in fact are often rich in resources, but everything gets stolen, no one is safe  and there is no order.  Transactions can’t be trusted because  laws aren’t followed, no one trusts anyone else enough to make contracts with them.   In corrupt countries crime goes unpunished and no one is safe.  That’s exactly what makes those countries so poor–it’s the corruption, it’s the decay.  And this is the kind of country that the Democrats are leading us to—that the Communists behind the masks are trying to turn America into.

So I look at Abraham’s conversation with God and I think–maybe virtue is its own reward.  Maybe if just 10 people are God-fearing enough and good enough—if just 10 people have  integrity, it will keep the bottom-feeders from swooping in on us to feast on the decay.

Maybe we are not in the midst of  a fascist-socialist revolution. Maybe this is just a small minority of people who are using the media to appear larger and more powerful than they are. And Maybe there are lots and lots of good people in America—many more than 10 —- and we will overcome this challenge because of it.

Or maybe we are really that far gone. Either way,  the only thing to do is to turn back to God.  All of us right now, we are living in this place at this time for a reason.  And it truly only takes a committed group of people to turn things around and change the world.  What have we got to lose by trying?

I vow to be a part of the resistance. How about you?

 

 

 

 

What Happens When You Start to Think for Yourself

Here is a video of two of my favorite people in the whole world:

https://youtu.be/yPxslHw5cK4

What happens when you start to think for yourself?

1) You get attacked.

2) You become the person whom you were meant to be.

It reminds me of Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:39

“He that findeth his life shall lose it and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it.”

You can’t be afraid of standing for the truth, of doing the right thing.  If you try to hold on to your old life of sinking in to the routine and going along with the world in order to keep yourself safe and comfortable, you never really live, you never do what God put you on this earth to do and your time on earth doesn’t really make a difference.

But if you are willing to lose the comfort of an easy life, and you are willing to think for yourself and stand up for the truth, knowing that you will face hardship and that you will be attacked for your faith and for righteousness,  you find your purpose in life, and you fulfill the reason why God put you on this earth at this place and at this time.
