************************************************************

Most people are familiar with the metaphor of the pills from the 1999 movie “The Matrix.”

In the movie, the hero Neo, played by Keanu Reeves can either take the red or the blue pill. Taking the latter mean he stays ignorant of the massive computer simulation around him and humanity. Taking the former means he has his eyes open to the truth, and all it implies.

In this video, I set the record straight about some confusion that has set in about the meaning of these pills. I argue there are seven pills throughout life, not two.

Daryush “Roosh” Valizadeh used to be the world’s most influential Pick Up Artist (PUA). He wrote over a dozen books on how to seduce and fornicate with young women with greater confidence and efficacy. Many thousands of young men around the world read his blog, bought his books, and attended his events to “get good at game.”

But over time, the whole glittery enterprise lost its shine and appeal. Roosh felt emptier than before...

***********************************************************

Men tend to be good at doing things together, in the sense of separately together like watching a sports game or fishing, hunting, poker, billiards, etc. Men tend not to be good at spending time communicating face to face with each other.

The idea of male friendship has undergone a shift for the worse in the wake of the turbulent, and failed, sexual revolution. It’s not just relationships between men and women that have suffered; relations between men have also suffered. Men, Christian or otherwise, don’t want to “get too close” out of fear that it seems either gay or something only women do. But real friendship is built on virtue, and the root of virtue is the Latin vir, or male adult. What are men afraid of? Adam Minehan and David Niles, creators and hosts of The Catholic Man Show podcast, are lifelong friends and talk about the lost art of manly closeness.

Now that some dioceses are allowing greater access to the Sacraments—especially, in some places, the source and summit of our Christian life, the Holy Eucharist, in this video, I put together my wish list of seven things that should be dropped from the Mass.

By things, I mean liturgical abuses. Don’t believe me. Believe the relevant official documents of the Church.

St. Pope Pius X called Modernism “the synthesis of all heresies” and strongly condemned it in his 1907 Encyclical Pascendi. You’ve heard Modernist ideas before: Jesus is extremely important and special, but not the unique Savior; truth is not immutable; you don’t need the Church, only the Holy Spirit working in your conscience; the Bible is inspired and inerrant only when it comes to spiritual truths and lessons. You get the idea.

In this video, I review the origins of the term "political correctness" and how the early Communists used it as a devil term to create a consensus in favor of the godless Revolution of 1917.

In other words, it was tool by the extreme Left to keep people in line, and to “encourage” them to tow the party line—the Communist Party line.

So politically incorrect speech came to be synonymous with a speech that deviated from the Party ideology, that that made the speaker known as a whistleblower, a troublemaker.

In other words, a counterrevolutionary.

Most people flee from labels like “dirty trickster,” “buffoon,” and “prince of darkness. Presidential advisor and author Roger Stone revels in it. Splashes around in it so as to defuse its sting. Most of what you think you know about him is written by his enemies.

As this interview was conducted, Stone was facing a 40-month jail term for seven counts handed down by a twice-Obama appointed judge and a hopelessly biased jury. Time will tell whether he gets a presidential pardon.

POINTS COVERED
 
* Their thin-skinned reactionary followers, their recalcitrance in the face of legitimate Catholic authority, and their zealous modus operandi, are oddly similar to the Medjugorje Movement.
 
* The SSPC are manifestly not in full communion with the Catholic Church.
 
* The recent bombshell expose on SSPX cover-ups of sexual crimes by Christine Niles at Church Militant has put a silver dagger in the heart of the group's proud assertion that they kept pure and uncorrupted by the scandal-ridden "Conciliar Church."
 
* SSPX is a gateway drug to sedevacantism
 
* Let's pray for all victims of sexual abuse
 
* Far Right groups reflect High Church Protestantism

Phil Lawler has the long view of things. A professional journalist and editor for over 30 years, he has a broad sense of perspective. The CCP virus lockdown has introduced a serious threat to Catholic life insofar as the Council of Trent defined that the Sacraments are necessary for salvation, and that canon law (c 213 and elsewhere).

While Baptists ministers are getting arrested and fined (and refusing to pay), and they don’t have the Real Presence and no eucharistic Lord to adore, how come the bishops as a whole seem adamant in backing the secular refusal to see religious services as essential? Why are creative workarounds—which respect medical distancing protocols—of no apparent interest to our bishops?

A war against the United States and the West has been raging under our noses for decades.  This war is by definition covert, and has many fronts: military, technological, political, and social.

The problem is so few people know it is being waged. Until now. Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spalding, a China expert and former Defense Attache to China in Bejing, China, has written a jaw-dropping book that every American should read. It's called Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elites Slept.

On any bell curve, you are going to find the great mushy middle, with extreme ends of the spectrum on either side. In the case of the culture war, the far left side is dominated by radicals who are passionately committed to overturning the Christian order, imitating the Communist agenda in destroying marriage and family, and generally leading what Pope Benedict XVI called the “dictatorship of relativism.”

**************************************************************

Anyone who but raises the question of God punishing the world today for sins runs the risk of mockery and derision. The critics reply that “That was the vengeful God of the Old Testament. Jesus was much nicer.” And while it can be very difficult to prove a cause-effect relationship in particular cases, we do know three things. 

First, God has a history of sending plagues and other punishments on mankind, as with the Noah and the flood, the plagues upon Egypt, the leprosy of Miriam, the messages of Akita and Fatima—they all validate the truth that God can and does occasionally send widespread punishments upon mankind.

Second, idolatry is a violation of the First Commandment and is particularly egregious when authorized by a pope. 

Third, the public worship of the occultic idol Pachamama in the Vatican, including its enshrinement before the main altar of St. Peter’s Church, was such an idolatry.

Author John Gravino connects a number of key dots, between heretical Church documents and sexual sin, and between the Pachamama worship and the outbreak of COVID-19.

The silly Sixties’ song “The Age of Aquarius” was wrong. It’s the Age of St. Joseph. Today more than ever does the universal Church need the example and intercessor of the foster father of Jesus Christ. Men, women, and children need the manly exemplar of human fatherhood, and the head of the Holy Family fits the bill in spades.

In the last 150 years, there has been more teaching, insights and conclusions about the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary than in the previous 1900 years. Father Donald Calloway, MIC, has put everything you need to know about the role of St. Joseph in salvation history. You will be astonished, as I was, of how much you don’t know about the second greatest saint.

Catholics of the Eastern persuasion take fasting seriously. It looms large in their approach to penitential Seasons in the Church’s calendar. Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo (formerly Deacon Sabatino) founded the Institute of Catholic Culture, and has since served as its Executive Director. He also serves as the Director of the Office of Catechesis and Evangelization for the Melkite Greek Catholic Eparchy of Newton. And is the father of seven.

He is convinced that the sense of apathy and misunderstanding toward the great benefits of fasting has got to change. Fasting not only has health benefits but it is badly needed today for Christians who desire to grow and self-mastery and love of Christ. Listen in!

The Catholic Church will be dealing with the fallout from the recent Apostolic Exhortation “Querida Amazonia” for many years to come. In this episode of the Patrick Coffin Show, I sit down with the editor of Catholic World Report and Ignatius Insight, author Carl Olsen to talk about the text of the document, and how Catholics are to view it in light of previous magisterial documents.

The big question Catholics around the world are asking is, why was the Synod called in the first place?

I saw Jean Vanier speak at two different conferences. The first was in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in the mid-80s; the second on a farm retreat north of Toronto in the early 90s. It was at the latter where I met and spoke with him briefly. I had read a couple of his early books.

If you are Canadian and Catholic, Jean Vanier is a household name to you.

A dozen schools are named for him across the country, and he won dozens of accolades and honorary degrees—all manner of worldly admiration.  

Under the inspiration of a Dominican priest named Father Thomas Philippe,  Jean Vanier as the founding myth goes, visited two mentally handicapped man and decided to have them come live with him and that was the beginning of L'Arche, now a worldwide Federation of group homes for the mentally handicapped

When he walked into a room or strode casually up to a lectern before a large crowd, his beautiful face always seem to be beaming.

His tall frame radiated a palpably peaceful aura, which has been compared to being in the presence of St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who was a friend of his.

We now know that Jean Vanier was also a serial sexual predator.  
After all the heartache and anger and disillusionment felt by millions of Catholics since the long Lent of 2002, now JEAN VANIER? You kidding me?

The truth is, he seems to have learned is diabolical strategies for taking full advantage of women from none other than Father Thomas Philippe, his mentor in spiritual father, a despicable and manipulative fraud.

In this video, Patrick asks the questions that have not been answered about this tragic, shocking fall of a man once hailed as a living saint.

* The Holy Office punished Thomas Philippe in 1956 with severe restrictions and sanctions, which means his despicable behavior was known by the Vatican. Why was this not flagged decades earlier?

* We know of 14 women who say they were abused by Philippe long *after* his formal punishment for doing the same thing in the early 50s. How many more lives were badly damaged because Vanier gave him cover—and access to a steady flow of vulnerable women?

* Pope Francis publicly mentioned that he had talked to Vanier the week before he died in May 2019, and went out of his way to praise his life work. As of this moment, the Pope has not said a word, either about the victims nor the scandal itself. Why not?

* Finally, how could a man who lived a very public life as a model of morality and goodness have so successfully segmented and hid this level of evil?  

In addition to praying for his victims, and for his soul, I also pray for the community he started.

The prophetic witness of L'Arche is even more urgently needed today than it was in 1964.

In mid-February, 2020, Father John Hollowell was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Probably one of the least desirable things to hear. The small-town Indiana pastor (of two busy parishes) has not only taken it in stride, as far as that’s possible, he says it was an answer to a prayer he made in 2018 during the maddening summer of shame with the news of McCarrick and related sins and crimes emerged—again.

If Christmas is the season to be jolly, Lent is the season to be needlessly scrupulous and neurotic, and to argue online about things that have VERY little to do with imitating Jesus, amiright? In this video, I tell the truth about the main confusions many people seem to have about Lent. A blessed Lent to you.
