WAY FORWARD – II

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLVII (November 6, 2021) : WAY FORWARD – II In last week’s issue of these “Comments”, a reader was commended for taking a properly supernatural view of the modern world’s frightening problems, namely, they constitute one overriding offence against Almighty God. That is why their full gravity cannot remotely be grasped on a…

WAY FORWARD – I

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLVI (October 30th) : WAY FORWARD – I Such is the pressure of national and international events in the autumn of 2021 that readers of these “Comments” can be asking themselves, is there any other way forward for people living today than the way forward traced for them by the enemies of God,…

COVID = CRIME

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLIV (Oct. 16, 2021) : COVID = CRIME These “Comments” make little to no apology for coming back so often to the question of Covid, to the crime of Covid, because it promises to be for a while to come the major battlefield in the great war between Satan and God for the…

VIGANO on the “GREAT RESET”

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLIII (October 9, 2021) : VIGANO on the “GREAT RESET” It is surely providential that the official Catholic Church has no more work to require from its former nuncio in the USA until a few years ago, Archbishop Carlo-Maria Viganò. This leaves him free to do what every high-up churchman should be doing,…

ROSARY BLAST II

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLII (October 2, 2012) : ROSARY BLAST II In the great naval battles of the Second World War (1939-1945), rendered out-of-date today by aeroplanes and missiles, great warships still confronted one another, but the size of their guns was decisive. Normally, only big warships could take on big warships: for instance, in 1941…

PLAUSIBLE SCENARIO

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXLI (September 25, 2021) : An American friar, by name Brother Alexis Bugnolo, paints a dramatic picture of our near future in a video-clip which many readers may already have seen, but which all can profit to know, not because everything will necessarily happen exactly as he foresees, but because something like it…

BLEATING LAMBS

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXL (Sept. 18, 2021) : BLEATING LAMBS At the end of last month at Courtalain in France, 15 Superiors of Traditional Catholic Communities, but in good standing with Rome, issued a joint statement in anticipation of their meeting with Pope Francis a few days later, because of their reasonable fear of losing their…

A  MAN  of  MONEY  SPEAKS

ELEISON  COMMENTS  DCCXXXIX  (Sept. 11, 2021) :  A  MAN  of  MONEY  SPEAKS Doug Casey is a highly successful investor in the USA with many years’ experience of making money behind him.  He has not only a knowledge of finance, which keeps his feet on the ground, but also a certain all-round culture which he must…

MERCIFUL CHASTISEMENT ?

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXVIII (Sept. 4th, 2012) : MERCIFUL CHASTISEMENT ? These “Comments” refer frequently to an imminent Chastisement, even a “rain of fire”, which an angry God will inflict upon a sinful mankind. Yet Catholics have always learned from the Church of the extreme mercy of Almighty God, the supreme mercifulness of the Sacred Heart…

WISE LEFEBVRE – II

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXVII (August 28, 2021) : WISE LEFEBVRE – II Besides the balance between liberalism and sedevacantism (cf. these “Comments” last week), there is another angle from which to come at the wisdom of Archbishop Lefebvre’s resisting “to their face” Popes Paul VI and John-Paul II, and that is how exceptional he was at…

LEFEBVRE’S WISDOM – I

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXVI (August 21st, 2021) : And what do these “Comments” have to say about Pope Francis’ latest smashing scandal, namely his Motu Proprio “Traditionis Custodes” in which he does all he can to extinguish the age-old Traditional rite of Mass in Latin, and to make sure that it will disappear for ever from…

GODLESS GOVERNMENTS – II

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXV (August 14, 2021) : Readers may remember from these “Comments” last week the article of a British patriot, Dennis Whiting, in which he denounced the British Government for organising lies in order to run the country, especially but not only, in connection with the Covid nonsense. To call it “Covid nonsense” is…

GODLESS GOVERNMENTS – I

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXIV (August 7, 2021) : Without a true God or His personal judgement at death to fear, what is there to stop rulers or ruling elites from exploiting their privileged rank for their own benefit and not that of the people they rule ? A modern politician answers to nobody except the media.…

GREAT RESET ?

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXIII (July 31, 2021) : For the Philosophy Festival held in Venice two months ago, Archbishop Vigano wrote another of his splendid overviews on modern events, presenting a truly Catholic point of view such as all churchmen should be presenting, but which by the Conciliar madness the large number of them are still…

LIFE PRECIOUS

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXII (July 24, 2021) : “And then the lawless one (the Antichrist) 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…

The ENDURING GOD

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXXI (July 17th, 2021) : Man is changing all the time, no need to prove that, whereas God cannot change in the least. He is Being itself (and they say that He does not exist !), so that He has all being in Him and there is no being that He can acquire.…

TRUTH and AUTHORITY – III

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXX (July 10th, 2021) : With regard to the crisis of the Church, the diagnosis of loyalty to Catholic Truth battling it out ever since Vatican II with loyalty to Catholic Authority (EC 726, June 12) throws much light (EC 728, June 26), but it may have yet more light to throw, on…

GOD CENTRAL

ELEISON COMMENTS DDCCXXIX (3rd July, 2021) : It is a foretaste of what St Paul says about the coming of the Antichrist : “And then that wicked one shall be revealed….whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs and lying wonders, and in all seduction of iniquity to them…

TRUTH and AUTHORITY – II

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXVIII (June 26th, 2021) : One may or may not agree with the statement by these “Comments” two weeks ago (#726, June 12) that at Vatican II (1962-1965), Catholic Truth was split, broadly speaking, from Catholic Authority, but it is in any case a position which goes a long way towards explaining the…

VIGANO PLEADS

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXVII (June 19, 2021) : These “Comments” have more than once quoted Our Lady saying in Japan in 1973, “Only I can help you now.” It is typical of the wisdom of Archbishop Vigano to take Her seriously. Not all readers of these “Comments” will have seen how he pleaded with Her last…

TRUTH and AUTHORITY – I

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXVI (June 12, 2021) : A reader of these “Comments” was puzzled recently by what seemed to her the relatively unsatisfactory explanation given by a prestigious Traditionalist leader of his return under the authority of the official Church after he had for several years followed the lead of Archbishop Lefebvre (1905-1991), and then…

WORLD WAR III

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXV (June 5th, 2021) : The third World War is coming close. We have just had a very serious military confrontation on the Russian-Ukrainian border between armies of those two countries, specially mobilised for that confrontation. Outright war seems to have been avoided for the moment, but many observers consider that it cannot…

PAUL AULAGNIER, R.I.P

ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXXIV (May 29th, 2021) : Three weeks ago there died in France an ex-Society priest to whom we all have an immense debt, becausehe was for several years a decisive support to Archbishop Lefebvre in the founding and constructing ofthe Society of St Pius X. I think Fr Paul Aulagnier (1943-2021) was never…

FOUR CONCERNS.

ELEISON  COMMENTS  DCCXXIII  (May 22, 2021) :  A reader writes,  “Your Excellency, could you please clarify four points of disagreement with yourself which seem to come up over and over again in Traditional Catholic circles.”    No problem –  by all means let people think for themselves as long as they agree with me ! 1 …

Pope’s Disintegration – III

EC DCCXX #720 1st May 2021 That politics are not religious, is taught?Then battles of Christ the King will not be fought. If these “Comments” of April 17th praised the analysis by the Society of St Pius X’s Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, for his March 12 analysis of the unthinkable madness of Pope Francis’…

POPE’S DISINTEGRATION – II

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXIX (April 24, 2012) :  The rhyming couplets at the beginning or end of each of the issues of these “Comments” have normally only two lines of ten syllables each to make their point, which means that they can be so compressed that they are difficult to understand. Last week’s was an…

POPE’S DISINTEGRATION

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXVIII (April 17, 2021) : In an interview which he released early last month, the Superior General of the Society of St Pius X, Fr Davide Pagliarani, tackled in his own words a subject which is of supreme importance in today’s Church and world, but which is not often tackled because it is…

8 of 31 REASONS

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXVII (April 10, 2021) : Two weeks ago these “Comments” had pleasure in presenting from an Israeli Rabbi a pile of good sense in the form of 31 reasons why he would not take the anti-Covid “vaccine”. The only problem was that easily most of them had to be shortened for all of…

ROSARY WEAPONISED  ?

ELEISON  COMMENTS  DCCXCIII  (September 24, 2022) On the eve of the Feast of the Assumption appeared in “Atlantic” magazine in the USA an article which caused a little stir by associating the Rosary with right-wing violence and terrorism.

31 REASONS

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXIV (March 27, 2021) : 31 REASONS  On the Internet appeared recently an admirable list of 31 reasons coming from an Israeli Rabbi, explaining why he won’t take the notorious Covid “vaccine.” Many congratulations to the Rabbi! –1 It is not a vaccine, providing by definition immunity, but a medical treatment providing merely…

COVID NONSENSE

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXIV (March 20, 2021) :   It is now nearly a year since the Covid nonsense was sprung upon the whole wide world, all at once, based on a massive lie according to which a deadly plague was about to be let loose on all mankind. The massive lie became clear as soon…

RUINATION’S CAUSES

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXIII (March 13, 2012) Two weeks ago in these “Comments” a veteran Traditionalist made some interesting comments on the subject of infiltrators, conscious or unconscious, wrecking the Catholic Church from within. Readers may recall how he strove in vain to restore Catholic Tradition within the Conciliar structure. He found out that it…

SCIENCE DOUBTED

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXII (March 6, 2021) : SCIENCE DOUBTED  Few people today still call in question the priority of science when it comes to providing us men with a happy world and the good life. Replace religion with science and materialism, said the Protocols of the Sages of Sion (EC 699), as though science…

UNCONSCIOUS “INFILTRATORS”

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXI (27th February, 2021) : In these “Comments” of three weeks ago, where a reader was looking for an explanation of the decline of the Society of St Pius X after the death in 1991 of its Founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, the question arose of possible infiltration of the SSPX by enemies of Catholic…

WHITE IDENTITY – III

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCX (February 20th, 2021) : WHITE IDENTITY – III That identity today should be such a problem for many people (see the two previous issues of these “Comments”) is an artificial state of affairs. Something is out of true. When people are leading normal lives, they have a natural identity corresponding to…

WHITE IDENTITY – II

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCIX (February 13, 2021) : WHITE IDENTITY – II The dialogue continues with a young white man of today who is looking for who he is, for his identity, but who fears to look for it in the direction of Christ, because Christianity seems subordinate to Judaism, which makes Christians inferior. Yet…

WHITE IDENTITY – I

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCVIII (February 6, 2021) : WHITE IDENTITY – I A young white couple that reads these “Comments” wants to come back to the Church, but it has a special difficulty which the 31-year old husband suspects is shared by many of his contemporaries : the present lack of an identity for whites. Both…

SECOND FLOOD

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCVII (January 30th, 2021) : Repeat, the main player in the worldwide Covid drama unfolding all around us is Almighty God, no less.

SSPX QUESTIONS

  ELEISON COMMENTS DCCV (January 16th, 2021) : A reader of these “Comments”, no doubt anxious from what he sees or hears about the Society of St Pius X being less faithful than it used to be or should be, has in mind a few possible explanations. The author of these “Comments” offered some considerations by…

MADIRAN – CONCLUSION

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCIV (January 9th, 2021) :  After seven issues of these “Comments” considering separately the Prologue and six Parts of the 1968 book of Jean Madiran (1920-2013), The Heresy of the 20th Century, it will be worth stitching the Parts together again so as to highlight some of the main lessons for ourselves in…

COMMUNISM RETURNING

   ELEISON COMMENTS DCCIII (January 2nd, 2021) :   The USA presidential election of November last year has seen a decisive confrontation between the conservative political right and the revolutionary political left.

COVID’S LOGIC

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCCI (December 19th, 2020) :  “Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof,” says Our Lord in the Sermon on the Mount (Mt. VI, 34).

MADIRAN – PROPOSITION VI

  ELEISON COMMENTS DCC (December 12, 2020)  Part V is not the easiest of the six Parts of the 1968 book of Jean Madiran (1920-2013) on The Heresy of the 20th century, because it deals with the Natural Law, which is a difficult concept for modern minds to grasp. And this is because God the Creator…

COVID – ORIGINS ?

    ELEISON COMMENTS DCIC (December 5th, 2020)  These “Comments” have claimed that Almighty God is at the very centre of the storm being raised all over the world on the basis of the counter-truth that the Covid-19 virus presents a major threat to all of mankind.

    November 28th, 2020 (EC 698)   From the Prologue of Jean Madiran’s book The Heresy of the 20th Century, presented briefly in #690 of these “Comments” eight weeks ago, readers may remember Madiran’s own dismissal of the heresy concerned as being “night, emptiness, and nothingness.” Nevertheless that heresy has had in the aftermath of…

MADIRAN; THE HERESY

ELEISON COMMENTS DCXCVI (696) (Nov. 14th, 2020) No ocean storm could ever drown a cork,Nor heresy smother Truth’s traditional talk. In his book “The Heresy of the 20th Century” Jean Madiran (1920–2013) has presented the heresy’s gravity (Foreword); its underlying philosophy (Part I) and the bishops responsible for it (II); in Parts III, IV and V…

NEXT COVID?

ELEISON COMMENTS DCXCV (695) (November 7th, 2020) By His Truth, Jesus Christ made us all free.Preferring lies, great prisons we shall see.

MADIRAN – THE BISHOPS

ELEISON COMMENTS DCXCIV 694 (October 31th, 2002)  True bishops are a gift of God alone.If they’re not prayed for, all mankind will groan. It will be recalled that in the Prologue of his book The Heresy of the 20th century Jean Madiran placed the blame for that heresy fairly and squarely on the Catholic bishops who led up…
