This morning, in Nancy Pelosi’s news conference she referred to “lawlessness”. And she asked the rhetorical question about where all this lawlessness is coming from. Well, Madam Speaker, the answer is in your Holy Bible. I shall quote the relevant passage for you and as a reminder to all of us as to who is behind the lawlessness in the Church and in these United States of America.

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling to meet him, we beg you, brethren, not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you this? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming. The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2

Beware, then, that we not be deceived. The way to avoid being deceived is be strong in the Truth Who is Jesus. Go to Him through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I have found that in the days leading up to Christmas and Easter that the evil one attacks most ferociously. So to be prepared for his attacks, we should ramp up our devotion to St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. and do not be discouraged.

Also, I provide this meditation on the tempter.

The enemy daily and violently persecutes my faith, hope and love. Thou art persecuted, my faith! Thou art persecuted, my hope! Thou art persecuted, my love! Endure, faith; endure, hope; endure, love! Take courage, faith; take courage, hope; take courage, love! God is your Defender! Do not grow weak, faith; do not grow weak, hope; do not grow weak, love! The Devil generally enters into us through one single lying imagination, or through a single false thought and sinful desire of the flesh, and afterwards he works in us and disturbs us, so incomplex is he. Cannot, therefore, the Lord of all spirits enter into us through one single thought and through true and holy love, and abide with us, and be everything to us? And therefore pray undoubtingly; that is, simply, in the simplicity of your heart, without a doubt: it ought to be as easy to pray as to think. When you are very young, or leading the life of the sinful world, then you only know by name both Christ the Saviour and the enemy of God and mankind, the most evil Satan, and you think that Christ is very far away from you in heaven, and that there is a Devil somewhere, but not in any way near and around you, and though you hear that he is evil, you think his wickedness does not concern you; but when you grow older and enter upon the devout life, when you serve God with a pure conscience, then you will experience in your heart the difference between the easy yoke of the Saviour and the heavy burden of Satan, who pitilessly injures us.

It has been brought to my attention that some of you fine, upstanding people would like to send Christmas cards the old-fashioned way. I believe it is called snail mail.

A few tips. don’t send food or beverages, unless it is Grey Goose vodka which can be administered through my feeding tube, not that I’d do that.

My mailing address is as follows:
