On the Honor of being fully Catholic, and the Honor of being American.

It is indeed and honor for any Catholic to be called a "Trad", and it is an honor for every American to be both liberated and protected by our Constitution.

It is Veteran's day, which was originally Armistice Day, which marked the end of World War I, November 11 1918. A day nowadays set aside to honor veterans, and for veterans to remember those left behind, and what this nation is all about, and why we even have veterans. 

So long as there is evil in the world, there will be those who oppose it, even to the point of taking up arms against it, and so, so long as there is evil in the world, we will have veterans. 

At the root, it's all about good and evil. We are pre-supposed to represent good, then the enemy is pre-supposed to represent evil. If good and evil didn't exist, there would never be another war. We cannot draw the same conclusion if we assume that good and evil were of equal value, because that cannot be. They are opposites; they cannot be merged, nor can they even coexist in peace and harmony.

They must be separated, lest blood be shed. 

That is why "Globalism" is quite impossible and Coexist-ence is suicidal. 

What is it, then, that makes us "good"? 

The Ten Commandments

The first three Commandments relate to man's relationship with God and form the fundamental basis for Theological Science. But the last seven Commandments relate to man's relationship with his fellow man, and form the fundamental basis for Moral Law. 

And that Moral Law is the highest and best form of morality ever found in any nation in all of world history. It is how the world has come to judge between good and evil. In America it is (or was) not only the basis, but the very reason for secular law. How we know right from wrong, what human behavior is commendable and what human behavior is criminal. 

Good versus evil. 

If there is one and only one God, then He founded one and only one Church, and there is no other. That one and only one Church is the Catholic Church, and it reserves to itself the entire Divine Revelation of God to man, including the Bible that emerged from that Revelation. And the Catholic Church reserves unto itself the sole authority of interpreting, teaching and preserving that Revelation and all the doctrines that flow from it. 

Many a Bishop and many a Priest have failed in their responsibility to preserve and safeguard the Revelation in its entirety. That is why those of us who have been labeled with the pejorative title "Trad", short for "traditionalist", should be proud of that title, as I am. Many would prefer that Church teaching should "evolve" to suite worldly desires as they become more and more popular, due to being unopposed and even recommended by people, especially clerics, who should know better. 

Nothing has changed, regarding good and evil. They are still the same. 

That is why I am honored to be called a Trad, and honored to be an old time Catholic, uncompromising, super-traditionalist stick-in-the-mud

And that is why it is a distinct dishonor to not be a Trad. 

But what about being an American, especially on this day, set aside to honor veterans, and to remember and pray for those who didn't come home? 

I can make at least a weak correlation between what Jesus did for us on the Cross, each, individually, and what the Constitution does for American citizens, each, individually. A poor correlation, perhaps, but a correlation nonetheless. 

Jesus became incarnate, lived and died for all of us, collectively, yes, but also individually. We should each take it personally. He showed us the way to eternal life, he showed us the truth that leads us to eternal life, and he showed the life we need to live here, to continue into life everlasting. (John 14:6) 

He gave us a new covenant, not eliminating the old covenant, but removing His previous strictures regarding the kosher laws of diet, washings and so forth, and He laid out the hard, and yet easy, path to follow. 

It is hard to resist temptation; it is hard to conquer concupiscence; it is never easy to go against the popular grain when it moves toward evil. But, it is easier when you are in community with others who are on the same path of the way, the truth and the life. 

We all know what peer pressure is.

Sometimes we need to find other peers. 

You will find no better peers than you will find in a traditional Catholic Church. 

How does that correlate to being American? 

America is the only nation in world history with a national supreme law - a Constitution - that was written for the citizenry, and not the rulers. The American Constitution establishes in law absolute citizen rights, and prohibits the Constitutional government itself from infringing any of those citizen rights. 

The Constitution legally protects the citizens from their own government. 

All anyone seems to think about these days is how the Constitution lays out the three coequal branches of government and provides their complete operating instructions, and serves as a sort of owner's manual for the running of America. The citizen-rights aspect is overlooked almost entirely, and even violated, as we've shown in these pages, by all three branches at different times. 

This is what you need to know, if you are an American citizen: 

You have no human ruler(s). Your only ruler is your Constitution. 

We all, from the President on down, stand equal before the law, which is the Constitution. Neither the President, nor the Congress, nor the Supreme Court, nor all of them combined, is your ruler. Only the Constitution rules them, and you, equally

Your need to read the Declaration and the Constitution as if they were written for you personally, because they were

If you are a black American of slave ancestry, they were written more for you personally than they were for me. Read them, study the history of them, and you will see this is true. 

Pay particular attention to the word "Equal" everywhere you see it, and learn about the idea behind its use. This is the basis for the ideology that drives Constitutional America. If the idea was not fully realized at first, due to political realities of the time, that does not detract from the beauty and the brilliance of the idea itself, whether it was ever fulfilled perfectly or not. 

The authors intended to abolish slavery with it. An abolition statement was narrowly defeated, by one vote, and deleted from the final draft of the Declaration; but note well that the word "Equal" remained, and it would eventually work to end slavery, even though it would take a horrible Civil War to do it. 

The slavers were able to keep Equality out of the Fifth Amendment, where it should have been with Life, Liberty and Property. But it finally was added, in the 14th Amendment after the Civil War. 

The whole reason for the inclusion of the God-given right to Equality in the Declaration was moral recognition of the abomination of slavery. Many of the founders, including Washington himself, were prevented by state law from freeing their own slaves, even from their deathbeds. 

Most veterans will tell you that the best peer group they were ever a part of was their military unit. No matter where in the country they were from, nobody gave a thought to the color or race of the guy at his shoulder. They were all true brothers, in a sense that non-veterans cannot even begin to imagine. 

In civilian life, there is no peer group quite like it. 

This is a day to reflect on our service, to remember, and to pray.

Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord;

And let the perpetual light shine upon them. 

May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Amen.


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Vic,

I read your articles and love and respect your knowledge and insight.  

I heard Bishop last evening speak on defending the deposit of faith.  I look to people like you to lead the way without fear, knowing truth does not tolerate compromise.  

Read my own posts on Les Femmes blogspot.  God bless you.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
