USA: Brave Priest (Fr Gigliotti) Warns Biden, Win Is Nothing For Catholics To Celebrate…editor
Priests with this quality of unapologetically speaking out clearly and fearlessly are gold-dust. Let’s pray for more and more to preach boldly like Fr Gigliotti.
The problem is that seminary lecturers have pumped socialist ideas into the heads of young students for the priesthood over a period of many years now, to the point where they think like secular people on just about every level. It is, therefore, going to take a special grace to enable most priests so see the truth and embrace the courage to preach it. Otherwise, Catholics for generations to come will be malformed in the Faith, and unable to tell the difference between good and evil – which is what we are witnessing in these times.
During the 20th century, notably in the “swinging sixties”, we were led into a mindset where everything was relative, right or wrong depending on one’s own point of view, and that has led, inevitably, to a society where nihilism rules: we don’t know right from wrong, good from evil.
As we are finding ourselves subject to Communist tyrannical rule, we need priests to wake up to the reality of the danger to the world of a Biden administration. They don’t call the President of the USA “leader of the free world” for nothing. We have been depending on President Trump to keep the forces of Communism at arm’s length. Now, with Biden supporting the objectives of Communist China, we are, humanly speaking, lost. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
We are grateful for access to the American TV news channel, Newsmax TV, where one of my favourite presenters is Chris Salcedo. He is a consummate professional, and not afraid to express his Catholic Faith, as we see in the above video. God bless him!
That clip from the TV news show lifted my spirits, no end. Fr Gigliotti is a wonderful priest, and those pupils and teachers are blessed to have him as their priest. I was delighted to hear the applause at the end although I don’t usually like applause in churches. This was an exception!
Chris Salcedo is an excellent broadcaster. If only we had someone like him over here. Fond dreams!
Agree about applause in church – I detested it when I attended the novus ordo. Absolutely detested it. Week after week it was somebody’s birthday or wedding anniversary and the applause would break out.
Also agree about Chris Salcedo – a first class presenter.
I also agree with your feelings on applause in Church.
It reduces matters to the level of the theatre or such like.
I was so impressed with that priest that I Googled his name to see if he had made other videos. This was one that I found, it’s just over a minute, but what drew my attention was that he is obviously going along with the Covid madness – he has a mask in his hands and sanitizer just behind the altar or table or whatever they call it at the new Mass. It is funny that he speaks about the importance of the Church’s teaching, and in the video he even quotes Pope Leo the Great, yet they still go along with all the changes in the Church and the Covid restrictions. It’s very confusing. I wonder what they’re thinking. It’s not as if he’s a young priest.
Yes, unfortunately even the best of priests these days are programmed in the secular mindset, to a greater or lesser degree. That there are still some – like Fr Gigliotti and a few other notables – still preaching about the “teaching of the Church” is some comfort.
I find the dining table and positioning of the Tabernacle in ? a hi-fi unit rather more disturbing, but at least the latter is actually behind the former and visible. However, if the Ciborium is dropped being taken out, Jesus will be on the floor – nowhere else to go. (I’m assuming that’s the Tabernacle anyway!). Seriously, is that a women’s quarter behind the railing windows at the back? They seem to be peering through and clapping.
I honestly don’t know as a Catholic. A Father and a Grandfather where we go from here . What I do know is that I most certainly never done anywhere near my best in the past to pass on The One True Catholic and Aposolic Faith and for that I know I will have to Face the consequences. This good Catholic Priest is doing his best to pass on The Faith which has and will be even more persecuted. We have a so called Pope of whom we pray will be converted to Catholicism. When in any of our lifetimes did we Believe that we would have to talk to Fellow Catholics and try and tell them that Our so called Pope is a Marxist and one cannot be a Marxist and a Catholic at the same time. Yet the ones of whom I have spoken to of Francis seem to follow his line . Of course these same Catholics all have one thing in common Orange Man Bad the M.S.M. has done its Marxist Job well . The Old saying ( especially in Scotland ) that You Cannot Fool all of The People All of The Time has in 99% of The People been wrong . I count myself along with many others who Follow Catholic Truth as among the 1 % . God Help Us and God Bless You Ed .

FOOF and all,
“We’re a country founded on a piece of paper. We can now be a country undone by a piece of paper.” Jovan Hutton Pulitizer
How can a nation founded not by God under the Social Kingship of Christ, and by men, who were mostly Freemasons, continue in its present form? It can’t. Sure, there’ll be attempts to bring it back as per founding principles but it won’t ever be the same again as the United of States of America (as per the Constitution) is built on foundations of sand.
Be that as it may, here is a comment from a particular blog that explains what happens to a nation that is founded on democratic principles:
…..”Where in scripture, tradition or the Fathers do we hear about men possessing the sole right to explicit consent as a precondition to being governed?
Maintaining this same line of inquiry, a more pertinent question about a glaring omission begs to be asked: what about God’s rights? Has the Almighty neither interest nor title over the matter of whether his people are ruled by saints in progress, or outright fiends? Is God’s infinite love factored in during Americans’ quadrennial ritual in which they explicitly choose the lesser of two evils, thereby expressly consenting to evil? Somehow Catholics in America never seem to ask themselves these questions. The reality is that sooner or later, democratic elections become simply rule by the degenerate mob. Societies degenerate into mobs because subversive agents slither in through the open-door societies of liberal democracies and debauch their cultures, generation after generation. Sleazeball cultures are indifferent to brazen crimes, because in their sinful stupefaction of mind and slothful will, they make a tiny minority out of the men in possession of well-formed consciences. Then one day, from this debased culture, blackmail-able moral imbeciles ascend to positions of power, controlled by the same hidden agents who slithered in from the outset.“
Although it’s very strongly worded one can see in the above piece -Truth. Sadly, I can see that the US, while having a very good and well-meaning populace, will continually struggle to keep it’s head above water due to its Constitution although if a king (Trump?😀) was proclaimed then the USA could well see itself an enlivened nation!
That is one superb comment you’ve copied. I agree that the USA cannot continue on its present course, being allegedly governed by the “will of the people” (which has turned into a bad, corrupt joke) rather than by the Will of God.
It’s frequently said that leftists always turn on themselves, sooner or later. Well, here we have a nation founded by Freemasons, being destroyed by Freemasons, for their own personal profit.
I emailed Pres. Trump last year and urged him to convert to the Catholic Faith, via a traditional parish near D.C. I hope Mrs. Trump is working on him toward that same goal…
I actually had (via Fr. Maximilian Mary, with a card sent to the White House), a Christmas Novena of Masses said for Trump and Melania. I’m mindful of the fact that it’s possible that Melania was instrumental in organising an exorcism of the White House after the Obamas left. According to rumours, she was spooked out by the idols left there. It may not be true, but it makes a nice story and the mere fact that no newspapers and women’s magazines have deigned to print any photos of her graciousness says a lot – that she’s doing the right thing, God love her!
Your concluding words sum up the dilemma of so-called “democracy” – to work as it is imagined, it must have God fearing leader(s) and Trump – amazingly – has been the closest to that in our times. That’s why he’s so hated by the enemies of God and His Laws.
This is most fascinating! Do watch it before it gets taken down although it does seems fantastical but it rings true with what white hats have said in the past.
The vlogger says the Deep State will be taken down and he says there will be chaos for a while. And as many have said, he’s very confident that Trump will be reinstalled as President.
Never a truer word written! Democracy from the outset was the godless Freemasonic equivalent to divine-right rule by Catholic monarchs, it has its origin in the Protestant Reformation and its global establishment in the French Revolution.
You’re right to say that the Founding Fathers of the U.S. were largely Freemasons and the Constitution a blueprint for Masonic governance of the nation, now falling apart through the inevitable corruption.
The original democracy was in ancient Greece and it crumbled because of the same inherent weakness, i.e., absence of God. Same with the ancient Roman Republic, which the U.S. tried to emulate with its Eagle standard and its Senate.
There never was freedom for people under this system they call democracy, as we see now to our sorrow, only a pretended freedom for as long as the Masonic elite permitted it. The only established freedom for all was the freedom to sin and insult God, otherwise we were permitted to choose at elections between two main parties, both apparently opposed yet absolutely aligned in their hatred of Catholicism and their agenda to morally corrupt society (cultural Marxism).
History bears this out and it warns us that the death knell sounded for the ancient democracies when they became corrupt and hedonistic. The writing has been on the wall for a while and even a good man like Donald J Trump can’t prevent the inevitable. It must collapse and all must be restored in Christ Our King.
That was beautifully said! It’s actually dispiriting that there seems no way out of the morass we are in although trusting in God through Mary is the only consolation we have.
That’s our great hope – the triumph of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, which is certain.
You know, I was thinking about this situation with President Trump and the disappointment so many Americans feel who had hoped and prayed for great things under a second term, not that it’s over yet.
Imagine how the disciples and followers of Our Lord felt when He was crucified on Calvary. Most of them had no clue about the supernatural kingdom He had come to establish, they had more or less set their sights on Our Lord establishing an earthly kingdom seated in Israel, a kingdom that would subdue all the enemies of the Jews and commence a golden reign of the Messiah on earth.
The Gospel story of the disconsolate disciples on the road to Emmaus gives us some insight into just how utterly despondent most followers of Our Lord were after the Crucifixion – they thought it the end of their glorious dream. And then see what happened on the third day after the blackness of Good Friday.
It tells us that God never abandons good people who try to do His will and hope in Him. Our Lady will triumph very soon, I’m convinced of it, the more so because all Hell has been let loose on the world these past 4 years as the battle between the serpent and “the Woman” nears its conclusion, with one certain winner. As Our Lady said in one prophecy, can’t remember which, “When they think they have the victory, I will snatch it from their hand in a sudden and miraculous way.
However things pan out over the next 12 days I feel certain that God has heard all the Masses, rosaries and other prayers for this good man Trump, who incidentally is more Catholic in spirit than Biden or Pelosi. He will be vindicated and, hopefully, converted. This present darkness is the storm before the calm, the crucifixion before the resurrection. Dawn will break and peace, the peac of God, will be restored. The devil is like a dog on a leash, he’s allowed so much freedom and then, when he has done his worst he gets reigned in again.
Thank you for your concluding blessing, much appreciated. I’m positive you’d look great in a Roman collar 😀
You are so right in saying that the majority of people really do not understand the reality of what is happening around us and that the majority have, sadly, lost the Faith if ever they really held to it. As I’ve said before, I tend to think that it’s not really possible to lose the Faith; that sometimes it’s not been nourished in the first place and just fades away. Tragic. Then again, there are plenty of practising Catholics who are not clear thinking on issues of Faith and morality which, to us, seem straightforward.
For example, on the telephone today, chatting with an old and treasured friend, the subject of the USA election arose. To my sadness, she had imbibed the media message about Donald Trump, and was surprised that I had not. I have come to realise that there is no point pressing certain matters (Brexit, the USA election fraud and the Covid scam) so I tried to round off that part of the conversation by pointing out that President Trump had saved the lives of millions and millions of unborn babies, not just in the USA but in countries abroad because he refused funding to those which had legalised abortion. She replied – to my complete astonishment – “but he’s just sent 5 people to the electric chair”. Apples and oranges. Innocent life vs guilty life. Incredible. After reminding her that the Church has always acknowledged the right of the State to use capital punishment, and that Our Lord Himself accepted that right, I moved us on to the important subject of my diminishing stock of chocolate biscuits and the vexing question of when I’d be able to get out to the shops to replenish 😀 That went down a treat, so to speak 😀
In summary, we should thank God for the grace of being able to see the truth in all of these matters, and pray for those who just can’t. Yet. Hopefully, soon enough, that will come right.
Ed as I said earlier most of them,in fact at least 90% ( the other 9% don’t it seems Know anything) just believe anything they read in The Daily Record or BBC or Sky or Reuters or whatever. It’s not even Statistics any more it’s just Damned Lies . I mean when talking to your Friend about President Trump and saying the good that he has done its just a good Job you never said that he’s as much if not more of a Catholic than Francis. As to the above Video it rings True Am Sure that The Military will be having a say in what all of these Marxist. Communist. Social Media. Main Stream Media the Obama Men the Clintons Etc Etc as far as The Bidens are concerned their just Puppets and anyone with any sense at all would know that . God Help Our Children and Grandchildren.
I applaud Chris Salcedo’s fire, but I think Father left out something most important from his talk. That is, if you vote for a pro-abortion politician, you’ve committed a mortal sin!
One more thing: I know Chris was referring to God-worshipping religions, but there is one religion that celebrates infanticide and child sacrifice: satanism. In fact, it was recently suggested to me that the leftist’s ceasless promotion of abortions has much to do with the use of blood in their satanic ceremonies.
(Sorry about the graphic mental image, but maybe we need to face the true extent of the occult in this modern era. The Catholic Church has vacated her mission, thanks to Vatican II, and occultists have rushed in to fill the vacuum.)
Maybe he omitted that because he was speaking to children, but he really ought to have remembered that it was being recorded, and thus included it, however he chose to word it, for the benefit of posterity…
Not (to crack the old joke) that posterity has ever done anything for us 😀
Victor to quote our favourite Scottish Saying your Spot on . That unfortunately is the only bit of humour you’ll get in my reply to you as The Satanic Crowd from The Vatican down are really on the crest of a wave . One only has to dip a finger into the Clintons Past alone to see the Evil. You see Chelsea wearing an upside down Cross . You look at the good people Dead through what I call Clintonites which is around 50 the last one being Jeffrey Epstein. The only Man alive ( well when he was alive) who could have shown how one could commit suicide by hanging oneself with Paper Sheets and Toilet Rolls. Yet the 99% of Society seemed to believe it . Just like here when the Scottish Family Party used language that will be taught in a so called Sex Education Curriculum to our Children ,the S.N.P. adults said it was too Filthy to be heard yet they themselves gave it the go ahead. I remember when the Evil Soros was being Interviewed a few years ago and was asked ” Do You Believe in God ”
Probably one of the most Evil Men on Earth emphatically just said ” NO ” he wasn’t asked whether he Believed in Satan . God Bless You And Stay Safe .
I think Soros believes himself to be god….didn’t know that about Chelsea Clinton, but I’d bet that the percentage of people who think Epstein committed suicide is well below 99%…
Here’s the completely clueless Pope Francis weighing in…
God I tried to read that Link to The Daily Express and all I got was Cats. Cats and more Cats . But I put what he said into Bing as Search am trying not to use Google as they also have banned PARLER because President Trump has a Voice on it . But Francis doesn’t miss a trick and it’s only time before he says it’s a Sin if we don’t take part in a Black Lives Matter Protest . After all He’s already said about the March in Washington ” You won’t see these people on a George Floyd March ” of course you won’t Francis as ( These People ) of whom you dismiss are Law abiding people and that of the 56 Arrested 54 were Antifa Thugs . How dare you Abuse the Balcony of St Peter to tell Lies . You have dragged Our Catholic Church through the Mud but not our Catholic Faith. Go back to Argentina you Apostate Man we can see that your a Marxist through and through.
i just posted this video clip on “the man who stole America” thread but I think it fits here as well because although I’d seen it posted on this blog before, I’d forgotten it until I came across it just now, and I think it bears repeating. As I said on the other thread, Biden didn’t just steal America, he is preparing to give it away because he’s signed up to The Great Reset.
Interesting photo – the backdrop reminds me very much of the backdrop Joke Biden speaks in front of that says “Office of the President-Elect.” In fact, I’d say Biden’s backdrop is modeled on WEF’s.
(As part of the ruling class election mirage, there is no such thing as the “Office of the President Elect.”)
Yes, I can indeed see all those tools used to counter the virus being used also to reshape “normality” into the complete opposite of what was our normal way of life with all of the freedoms which we used to enjoy. High amongst those freedoms is our right to practice our religion and to serve the One True GOD.
This is the only thread with USA in the title, so I chose it to ask for prayers for our American blogger RCA Victor, who is to undergo surgery tomorrow.
Please remember him in your prayers
Our Lady of Lourdes, Health of the Sick, pray for him…
I have just seen this and will say a prayer for RCA Victor, that his operation is a great success.
I missed this earlier. Will certainly pray for our good friend RCAVictor that all goes very well with his op.
Gabriel Syme, Athanasius et al,
I’ve just heard from RCA Victor and thankfully his surgery has been a success. Deo gratias!
Thanks to everyone for remembering him in prayer. I mean, it would be unthinkable not to have him on the blog. I know dead people vote in the USA but I’m not sure they’re so inclined to blog 😀
Thank you Editor, Athanasius and Gabriel Syme – as soon as I can think of a wiseguy response, Ed., I’ll be back…in the meantime I look like I’ve just had an encounter with BLM thugs…
Or perhaps, in view of the new thread, some Nicola Sturgeon thugs…
Even with your war wounds, the wit is as sharp as ever. Glad everything worked out well. I hope you gave the surgeon as good as you got!
While she was excavating a hole in my forehead, I asked her if she came across any brains…
“I asked (the surgeon) while she was excavating a hole in my forehead if she came across any brains…”
And… ? 😀
You should have expanded on the question by adding “you know, I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy.”
A. & E.,
You two are keeping me in stitches! As if I don’t already have enough of them!
She must have found some brains, Ed., and so decided to use the stitches to keep them in place…though she did tell me to expect some oozing…
I try to avoid doctors and hospitals as much as possible…. Hence my fervent prayers for you yesterday.
This is great news – a Republican congress woman is going to start the impeachment process on the day Biden is inaugurated – LOL!
I’m absolutely delighted at that congresswoman’s plan to lodge articles of impeachment as soon as Biden is inaugurated. That is fantastic news and it is totally deserved.
I’m really concerned at what lies ahead with those radical left-wingers going into the White House. Utterly corrupt and ant-God.
Suddenly “God bless America” takes on a new urgency…
Of course Biden’s steal, er sorry, “win” should dismay genuine Catholics.
Like the other “catholic” democrat, Pelosi, they are strong supporters of abortion, “gay marriage” and all the rest of the repugnant secular nonsense of the modern day.
Biden even makes a point of prominently advertising his credentials in these areas, which also has the effect of prominently denigrating the faith he claims to hold.
I believe Biden and Pelosi are representative of the majority of Catholics in novus ordo land. That is, they like the idea of being Catholics, but their values and conduct are wholly secular. The idea of adhering to Church teaching probably seems quaint, if not downright amusing, to them.
The only manifestation of faith is 35 minutes on a Saturday afternoon, at the “get it out the way Mass” (a.k.a “vigil”).
They are really fake Catholics and they know it. The Catholic religion is used by them in order to portray a false image of God-fearing people. It’s just a front for collecting Catholic votes while they live the lives of demons in reality. Nancy Pelosi is full of hatred against Trump and she can’t hide it. In fact, you can see the hate in her face, which is becoming more wizened by the day. She really is one wicked individual, as is Biden, who is utterly corrupt. Someone needs to remind them that there are no pockets in a shroud and no luggage racks on a hearse, assuming of course their conscience is not yet completely dead.
Athanasius / Gabriel Syme,
Absolutely those people are fake Catholics.
Oh and, Athanasius, you are assuming that they’ll be taken to their burial place in hearses – could well be gold state carriages (borrowed from Buckingham Palace!)
G.S., A. and E,
All spot on (I love Athanasius’ no pockets in a shroud, etc.), but the reason these criminals get away with using our Faith as a curtain to hide their wicked deeds is that they are publicly supported and encouraged by Pope Francis.
Who, I believe, is using the same curtain.
Absolutely agreed, they’re all cut from the same Communist red cloth.
Strange, isn’t it, that red is the color of martyrdom in the Church, yet in the world it’s the color of Communism. Must be Lucifer aping us again.
Funny to think that it was the colour once worn by the Cardinals to signify their willingness to sacrifice their lives for the faith – no they sacrifice the faith instead because most of them side with the Communist world view. Lucifer again involved!
