The Ultimate Reparation Paid In Full

Governor Gavin Newsom's California pushes billions in reparations payments as state faces budget deficit disaster - neglects to consider that the Ultimate Reparation has already been paid in full

But it's not surprising. Since SCOTUS (1963)
decided that teaching children about wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord., charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity was too radical - We have mental health crisis
- Infanticide turned into #BlackGenocide
- African American nuclear family has joined the Sea Turtles in the extinct list
- In 1965 25 of African-American children were raised in fatherless homes, today 80% of AA kids are raised in fatherless homes
- There's a fatherlesssness crisis with tremendous cost to fatherless children and to society.
- We have a Girlhood Crisis
- We have a Trans Crisis

We live in an age where people refuse to take responsibility for their own actions but demand apologies and reparations for atrocities they never experienced, from people who never committed them. They like to cancel art, ideas, symbols, language & history they don't agree with - they even cancel names of military bases - and MSM celebrates!

Why I say, Forget about the Janua 6th so-called insurrection. The real insurrection is on-going: MSM, White House, DOJ, FBI, ate doubling down on the #ChristoFascist, #AmericaIsRacist, #StopDisinformation narratives. Just today, AZ Gov. Hobbs' press secretary resigns after tweet suggesting gun violence against 'transphobes'

But according to the Catholic Cathechism, the Ultimate Reparation has been paid - in full:

Christ's death is both the Paschal sacrifice that accomplishes the definitive redemption of men, through "the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world", and the sacrifice of the New Covenant, which restores man to communion with God by reconciling him to God through the "blood of the covenant, which was poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins".

This sacrifice of Christ is unique; it completes and surpasses all other sacrifices. First, it is a gift from God the Father himself, for the Father handed his Son over to sinners in order to reconcile us with himself. At the same time it is the offering of the Son of God made man, who in freedom and love offered his life to his Father through the Holy Spirit in reparation for our disobedience.

"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man's obedience many will be made righteous." By his obedience unto death, Jesus accomplished the substitution of the suffering Servant, who "makes himself an offering for sin", when "he bore the sin of many", and who "shall make many to be accounted righteous", for "he shall bear their iniquities". Jesus atoned for our faults and made satisfaction for our sins to the Father. CCC 513-615

Sadly, politicias, elite institutions and corporate greed have turned the lofty ideal of equality into the ugly reality of resentments of other people’s achievements — and a feeling that the world owes you something, while you owe nobody anything, not even common decency:

Stanford's Graduate School of Business asks: "Do investors care about companies’ #diversity? According to this study by Professor Margaret Neale, they definitely do.

And if they don't, send them to professor #NirHalevy, who offers a class on how to shift people's attitudes as who is to blame

Then there is a Wayne University professor inciting violence: "I think it is far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down,” - Dr. Steven Shaviro, a professor at Wayne State University in Michigan Facebook post, since-deleted. The doctor has been suspended with pay.

Consider that the college majors that pay the most right after college  are STEM-based. The exception is a BS In Race Hustling. It is the highest paid: The University of Michigan has 163 DEI officers. Ohio State & U of Virginia have 94. Georgia Tech has 41, but only 13 history teachers. The Highest-paid diversity and inclusion employees rake in substantially more than the average full-time professor


Teachers unions & corrupt politicians turned schools & universities into a Maddrasha: more indoctrination less education & $1.7 trillion worth of useless degrees

The good news is that the Ultimate Reparation has already been paid for all!

Welcome to Passiontide

During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting. We are called not only to abstain from luxuries during Lent, but to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ's will more faithfully.

The Catholic Cathechism starting in paragrsph 606 describes what Jesus had to go through during this time "The Son of God, who came down "from heaven, not to do [his] own will, but the will of him who sent [him]", said on coming into the world, "Lo, I have come to do your will, O God." "And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." From the first moment of his Incarnation the Son embraces the Father's plan of divine salvation in his redemptive mission: "My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to accomplish his work." The sacrifice of Jesus "for the sins of the whole world" expresses his loving communion with the Father. "The Father loves me, because I lay down my life", said the Lord, "[for] I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father."

607 The desire to embrace his Father's plan of redeeming love inspired Jesus' whole life, for his redemptive passion was the very reason for his Incarnation. And so he asked, "And what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, for this purpose I have come to this hour." And again, "Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me?" From the cross, just before "It is finished", he said, "I thirst

608 After agreeing to baptize him along with the sinners, John the Baptist looked at Jesus and pointed him out as the "Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world". By doing so, he reveals that Jesus is at the same time the suffering Servant who silently allows himself to be led to the slaughter and who bears the sin of the multitudes, and also the Paschal Lamb, the symbol of Israel's redemption at the first Passover. Christ's whole life expresses his mission: "to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Only Christian Faith (and Reason) as a whole, constitutes the answer to this question: the goodness of creation, the drama of sin, and the patient Love of God who comes to meet man by his covenants, the redemptive Incarnation of His Son, his gift of the Spirit, his gathering of the Church, the power of the sacraments and his call to a blessed life to which free creatures are invited to consent in advance, but from which, by a terrible mystery, they can also turn away in advance. There is not a single aspect of the Christian message that is not on part an answer to the question of evil. CCC Par 309

609 By embracing in his human heart the Father's love for men, Jesus "loved them to the end", for "greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." In suffering and death his humanity became the free and perfect instrument of his divine love which desires the salvation of men. Indeed, out of love for his Father and for men, whom the Father wants to save, Jesus freely accepted his Passion and death: "No one takes [my life] from me, but I lay it down of my own accord." Hence the sovereign freedom of God's Son as he went out to his death.

610 Jesus gave the supreme expression of his free offering of himself at the meal shared with the twelve Apostles "on the night he was betrayed". On the eve of his Passion, while still free, Jesus transformed this Last Supper with the apostles into the memorial of his voluntary offering to the Father for the salvation of men: "This is my body which is given for you." "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."

611 The Eucharist that Christ institutes at that moment will be the memorial of his sacrifice. Jesus includes the apostles in his own offering and bids them perpetuate it. By doing so, the Lord institutes his apostles as priests of the New Covenant: "For their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth."

612 The cup of the New Covenant, which Jesus anticipated when he offered himself at the Last Supper, is afterwards accepted by him from his Father's hands in his agony in the garden at Gethsemani, making himself "obedient unto death". Jesus prays: "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me. . ." Thus he expresses the horror that death represented for his human nature. Like ours, his human nature is destined for eternal life; but unlike ours, it is perfectly exempt from sin, the cause of death. Above all, his human nature has been assumed by the divine person of the "Author of life", the "Living One". By accepting in his human will that the Father's will be done, he accepts his death as redemptive, for "he himself bore our sins in his body on the tree.

Passiontide is a name for the last two weeks of Lent, beginning on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, long celebrated as Passion Sunday, and continuing through Lazarus Saturday. It commemorates the suffering of Christ. The second week of Passiontide is Holy Week, ending on Holy Saturday

Prior to the 1970 revision of the Roman Missal (Sacramentary), crosses and images were covered with veils during Passiontide

From this Sunday, traditionally called 1st Sunday of the Passion, it is customary to veil images in churches. According to Father John Zulhlsdorf (Father Z) in the Gospel in traditional Form of the Roman Rite we hear:

They therefore took up stones to cast at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out from the temple.

So yesterday, the Church traditionally started yon hide the Lord and other images with veils, usually purple.

Father Z says "This is a fine old tradition. It has to do with deprivation of the senses and the liturgical dying of the Church in preparation for the Lord’s tomb and resurrection. We do this to sense something of the humiliation of the Lord as he enters His Passion, something of His interior suffering.

According to Fr Thomas Nathe, It used to be that two Sundays before Easter (5th Sunday of Lent), the Gospel reading was about Jesus confronting the established powers with his divinity; this caused those in authority to pick up rocks to stone him, “but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple” (Jn 8:46-59). Jesus would stay hidden from the religious authorities until his triumphant entry into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday); yet even then, he did not give anyone a chance to seize him until he was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane. The veiling of Jesus “hides” him from us during the time when the plot to kill him is afoot. Meanwhile, Jesus conceals himself until his appointed time.

Seeing the images in church covered up gives us a sense of disquiet and dread. Something is clearly different, yet it’s more than that; something is wrong. We know it as soon as we see those images all covered up. The last two weeks of Lent place us in the midst of this drama and imparts to us a sense of horror of what is happening, and shame; shame in knowing that man is going to torture his creator to death, and that somehow our sins are partially to blame. The veiling of the images focuses our attention more so than usual on Our Lord and his Paschal Mystery (his passion, death, and resurrection).

Father Z says "we lose things during Lent. We are being pruned through the liturgy. Holy Church experiences liturgical death before the feast of the Resurrection (Easter). On the first day of Lent (Ash Wednesday) until the Easter Vigil, liturgical music is pared back and we lose the Alleluia, Gloria, and flowers. On the 5th Sunday of Lent, crosses, images of Jesus, angels, and saints are covered with purple cloth. In the traditional Latin Mass, the “Iudica” psalm in the prayers at the foot of the altar, and the Lord’s Prayer at the end of certain prayers, are no longer said."

Adding "the pruning cuts more deeply as we march into the Triduum. After the Mass on Holy Thursday the Blessed Sacrament is removed from the sanctuary, which is stripped and its bells removed. On Good Friday there isn’t even Mass (the one day of the year there isn’t). At the beginning of the Easter Vigil we are deprived of light itself! It is as if the Church herself were completely dead with the Lord in His tomb. This liturgical death of the Church reveals how Christ emptied Himself of His glory in order to save us from our sins and to teach us who we are"

The Church then gloriously springs to life again at the Vigil of Easter. In ancient times, the Vigil was celebrated in the depth of night. In the darkness, a single spark would be struck from flint and ignited into flame, the flame

According to Father Nathe "over the next two weeks, strive to connect yourself in heart and mind with the Church’s liturgy in which these sacred mysteries are re-presented; then by your active receptivity, become a participant in the saving mysteries of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection

The Real On-Going Insurrection - Against the Kingdom

Forget about the January 6th so-called insurrection. The real insurrection is on-going

Do you ever wonder why the White House, DOJ, FBI & MSM are in lock step to promote the #ChristoFascist, #AmericaIsRacist narrative?

Why is it that days after President Joe Biden’s divisive speech to the nation and the FBI designating patriotic symbology as indicative of domestic terrorism, more than 20 FBI agents in full SWAT gear arrested pro-life Catholic husband and father Mark Houck.

Or why is it the Department of Defense and the Air Force joined the DOJ, FBI, and Intel Agencies in providing DNC with Opposition Research at taxpayer's expense?

Why is it fifteen felony charges were filed against pro-life citizen journalist David Daleiden stemming from his undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood?

Why the MSM circular reporting on the Roe V Wade decision? Consider NPR reporting: “In a historic and far-reaching decision, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) officially reversed Roe v. Wade on Friday, declaring that the constitutional right to abortion, upheld for nearly a half century, no longer exists….The decision, most of which was leaked in early May, means that abortion rights will be rolled back in nearly half of the states immediately, with more restrictions likely to follow.” Breaking it down, “upheld for half a century” and the “abortion rights” reference immediately gives away Nina Totenberg’s narrative. The NY Times questions the legitimacy of the court and ABC News quotes Elizabeth Warren as making an argument to pack the Court “The Supreme Court has “burned whatever legitimacy they may still have had” with their ruling last week overturning Roe v. Wade, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Sunday.” Not the mention the rioting and looting, which look more like an insurrection than peaceful protests, not unlike the ones we saw for two years led by ANTIFA and BLM.

How about the FBI retracting a document, only after it was leaked, statating Catholics may be domestic terrorists

AG Garland says DOJ prosecutes mostly pro-lifers and pro-choice, not as much, because pro-lifers do it in the open

The Southern Poverty Law Center tells the DOJ Catholics are likely to be Domestic Terrorists - Social Media regularly uses SPLC as fact-checkets

Arizona school board member says district should reject hiring teachers with Christian values: ''

Why is it Authoritarian Governments and Sympathizers hate Christians.? The biggest threat to China and Russia is not NATO, EU or the United States, but a 2 billion-strong kingdom.

There must be real insurrection going on.

The Church Militant refers to the Kingdom of God on earth. The term “militant” can suggest an antagonistic relationship between the Church and the world. Perhaps this is why the SPLC, the DOJ, Legacy Media & The White House view the Church with suspicion, petsecute in some cases, and refers to Its members as domestic terrorists

However, the Militant Church refers to an authentic reality: that the Church on earth works to overcome the imperfect and sinful dimensions of human existence.

The Church’s mission is not to oppose the world and society, but to work for their transformation by the convincing preaching of the Gospel and by the edifying power of the good works and example of those who are baptized into Christ. The Church’s best asset is the saintly activity and example of those who have chosen the Christian way of life.

"There are days that the onslaught of sin can seem overwhelming and that we are incapable of winning this battle. But we know that isn’t true and that the battle is not in the physical plane. It is a spiritual battle and we need to be warriors of prayer. We fight, as Paul tells us, Powers and Principalities. We fight on our knees in prayer"

"The LORD spoke to Nathan and said:
"Go, tell my servant David,
'When your time comes and you rest with your ancestors,
I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins,
and I will make his kingdom firm.
It is he who shall build a house for my name.
And I will make his royal throne firm forever.
I will be a father to him,
and he shall be a son to me.
Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me;
your throne shall stand firm forever.'" 
2 Sm 7:4-5a, 12-14a, 16

"From the beginning of Christian history, the assertion of Christ's lordship over the world and over history has implicitly recognized that man should not submit his personal freedom in an absolute manner to any earthly power, but only to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Caesar is not "the Lord". The Church bel0ieves that the key, the center, and the purpose of the whole of man's history is to be found in the Lord and Master." CCC 450

"Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying: 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe in the gospel.'" "To carry out the will of the Father Christ inaugurated the kingdom of heaven on earth." Now the Father's will is "to raise up men to share in his own divine life". He does this by gathering men around his Son Jesus Christ. This gathering is the Church, "on earth the seed and beginning of that kingdom". CCC 541

"Christ stands at the heart of this gathering of men into the "family of God". By his word, through signs that manifest the reign of God, and by sending out his disciples, Jesus calls all people to come together around him. But above all in the great Paschal mystery - his death on the cross and his Resurrection - he would accomplish the coming of his kingdom. "And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." Into this union with Christ all men are called." CCC 542

Since Jesus established his earthly kingdom on earth represented by the Church with Him front and center, it's not far fetched to conclude the elites want to destroy His kingdom

Forget about race hustlers or DEI peddlers. The New kingdom is not about division

"Everyone is called to enter the kingdom. First announced to the children of Israel, this messianic kingdom is intended to accept men of all nations. To enter it, one must first accept Jesus' word:

The word of the Lord is compared to a seed which is sown in a field; those who hear it with faith and are numbered among the little flock of Christ have truly received the kingdom. Then, by its own power, the seed sprouts and grows until the harvest. CCC 543

The new kingdom and the elitists are mutually exusive: "The kingdom belongs to the poor and lowly, which means those who have accepted it with humble hearts. Jesus is sent to "preach good news to the poor"; he declares them blessed, for "theirs is the kingdom of heaven." To them - the "little ones" the Father is pleased to reveal what remains hidden from the wise and the learned. Jesus shares the life of the poor, from the cradle to the cross; he experiences hunger, thirst and privation. Jesus identifies himself with the poor of every kind and makes active love toward them the condition for entering his kingdom." CCC 544 Is it any wonder anti-Christian, Far Left Propagandist New York Times warns prayer may be hazardous to your health?

The New Kingdom is not about a New World Order, not about Hollywood perfection, not about billionaires, wealth, power or wokeism. "Jesus invites sinners to the table of the kingdom: "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." He invites them to that conversion without which one cannot enter the kingdom, but shows them in word and deed his Father's boundless mercy for them and the vast "joy in heaven over one sinner who repents". The supreme proof of his love will be the sacrifice of his own life "for the forgiveness of sins" CCC 545

A Prayer in the Age ofGBTQ+ by Fr. Thomas Nathe

Just this week, former Catholic Priest Jim Morris argues ""The Catholic Church in the United States right now is in a crisis of leadership,
"I have worked with exceptional, exceptional pastors and Catholic priests throughout my years of priesthood. By the way, I'm still a committed Catholic, but the problem right now is that there are not enough of those exceptionally good men and I believe, while it might not be the silver bullet...allowing married men to become priests, it would put a plug in a ship that is taking on water."

Morris' silver bullet is like CNN, WaPo,NY Times, LA Times et al
arguing that journalism standards should be lower to attract excellent journalists. Or Teachers unions boss Randi Weingarten who urges teachers to Twist, Shout And Bully, to lower student standards so as to increase enrollment of excellent students. Or Yale University's Dr. #ChristyOlezeski, co-founder of the #Yale Pediatric Gender Program and says she helps treat three year olds questioning their gender and provides guidance on “medical intervention” saying medical standards should be lower to attract excellent doctors.

That San Jose Sharks player James Reimer has to Cite his Christian faith for not wearing Pride-themed jersey and some of today's headlines

Support my argument: Forget about the January 6th so-called insurrection. The real insurrection is on-going

Yet, thanks to Calvary, just like people leaving California, New York abd others, some are moving to reside in the kingdom.

Dictators And Authoritarian Leaders Flocking to Elite US Universities


Venezuela's Maduro is to attend, #Harvard this coming term.

Since corrupt politicians & teachers unions turned schools & universities into a #DevshirmeSystem; more indoctrination less education, this has sparked international interest in the US High Education System.

According to the Babylon Bee reported, #KimJungUn is attending an Ivy League School, but the Palestinian Wasp reports Jung zun 
has expressed interest in attending Stanford's Graduate School of 

Business' Professor Nir Halevy's class about how to shift people's attitudes about who's to blame -  CNN previously refer to this process, a #CynicalStrategy, effectively used by the DNC.  it was not confirmed whether DNC executives attended Hakevy's class

US  Media Executives & corrupt politicians who attended the class blame Trump for everything, while ex-alum Xi Jimpin blames the USA for everything 

The Mullahs are mulling Yale University

All this shows a real insurrection is on-going

Lent Friday VS. St. Patrick's Celebration: Happy Early St Patrick's Day

Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.

The Gospels speak of a time of solitude for Jesus in the desert immediately after his baptism by John. Driven by the Spirit into the desert, Jesus remains there for forty days without eating; he lives among wild beasts, and angels minister to him. At the end of this time Satan tempts him three times, seeking to compromise his filial attitude toward God. Jesus rebuffs these attacks, which recapitulate the temptations of Adam in Paradise and of Israel in the desert, and the devil leaves him "until an opportune time". CCC 538

The evangelists indicate the salvific meaning of this mysterious event: Jesus is the new Adam who remained faithful just where the first Adam had given in to temptation. Jesus fulfills Israel's vocation perfectly: in contrast to those who had once provoked God during forty years in the desert, Christ reveals himself as God's Servant, totally obedient to the divine will. In this, Jesus is the devil's conqueror: he "binds the strong man" to take back his plunder. Jesus' victory over the tempter in the desert anticipates victory at the Passion, the supreme act of obedience of his filial love for the Father. CCC 539

St. Patrick's Day,observed every March 17,is packed with parades, good luck charms, drinking, eating and all things green. The event started as a religious holiday, but over time it's become a celebration of Irish culture.

Catholics need to choose how to observe Lent Friday and St. Patrick's Day, as they are mutually exclusive, contrary to what the Diocese of Orange's (California) #LentenLight Dispensation.  Such Disoensation implies the Passion of the Christ is not that important.

As for me and my House, we've decided to celebrate St. Patrick's early and late: start St. Patrick's celebration Thursday, abstain Saturday & close out Saturday

Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday, on which the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is commemorated in the Christian Church. It is traditionally a day of fasting and penance.

Why do we call Jesus Kyrios, YHWH, Lord?

Why do we call Jesus Lord and why Authoritarian Regimes hate Christians?

Lord is defined as someone or something having power, authority, or influence; a master or ruler.

In the Greek translatio of the Old Testament, the ineffable Hebrew name YHWH, by which God revealed himself to Moses, is rendered as Kyrios, "Lord". From then on, "Lord" becomes the more usual name by which to indicate the divinity of Israel's God. The New Testament uses this full sense of the title "Lord" both for the Father - and what is new- for Jesus who is thereby recognized as God himself. CCC 446

Jesus ascribes this title to himself in a veiled way when he disputes with the Pharisees about the meaning of Psalm 110, but also in an explicit way when he addresses his apostles. Throughout his public life, he demonstrated his divine sovereignty by works of power over nature, illnesses, demons, death and sin. CclCC 447

Very often in the Gospels people address Jesus as "Lord". This title testifies to the respect and trust of those who approach him for help and healing. At the prompting of the Holy Spirit, "Lord" expresses the recognition of the divine mystery of Jesus. In the encounter with the risen Jesus, this title becomes adoration: "My Lord and my God!" It thus takes on a connotation of love and affection that remains proper to the Christian tradition: "It is the Lord!" CCC 448

By attributing to Jesus the divine title "Lord", the first confessions of the Church's faith affirm from the beginning that the power, honor and glory due to God the Father are due also to Jesus, because "he was in the form of God", and the Father manifested the sovereignty of Jesus by raising him from the dead and exalting him into his glory. CCC 449

450 From the beginning of Christian history, the assertion of Christ's lordship over the world and over history has implicitly recognized that man should not submit his personal freedom in an absolute manner to any earthly power, but only to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Caesar is not "the Lord". The Church bel0ieves that the key, the center, and the purpose of the whole of man's history is to be found in the Lord and Master. CCC 450

Christian prayer is characterized by the title "Lord", whether in the invitation to prayer ("The Lord be with you"), its conclusion ("through Christ our Lord") or the exclamation full of trust and hope: Maran atha ("Our Lord, come!") or Marana tha ("Come, Lord!") - "Amen Come Lord Jesus!"CCC 451

Son of God

 In the Old Testament, "son of God" is a title given to the angels,the Chosen People, the children of Israel and their kings it signifies an adoptive sonship that establishes a relationship of particular intimacy between God and his creature. When the promised Messiah King is called "son of God," it does not necessarily imply that he was more than human, according to the literal meaning of these texts. Those who called Jesus "son of God," as the Messiah of Israel, perhaps meant nothing more than this. CCC 441

Such is not the case for Simon Peter when he confesses Jesus as "the Christ, the Son of the Living God" for Jesus responds solemnly "Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my father who is in heaven." CCC 442
