Untold numbers of Americans have gone without medical care for more than a year now, resulting in health conditions becoming worse, diagnoses being missed, unmeasurable stress for anxious patients and families, and worsening prognoses.
One reason people haven't received care has been ignored in the media, but reveals a disturbing decline of ethics in medicine and politics: The healthcare industry has been using Covid-19 screening tests to deny care to patients who do not want the test.
Super aspidem et basiliscum ambulabis, et conculcabis leonem et draconem. (On the asp and the viper you will tread, And trample the lion and the dragon.) -Ps. 91:13
ET CONCULCABIS LEONEM ET DRACONEM
Up until the last century in Italy, free thinkers could spread ideas that were imbued with Masonic principles and rhetoric, because the social body was not liberal. They could stand in front of church on Sunday mornings and spread their lies, even while their own wives and children went to Mass, received catechism lessons, and were instructed by the Church and the State in the moral principles and shared values of honesty, the sense of duty, and love of country.

In this episode of The Editor’s Desk, Michael J. Matt discusses the Equality Act and its ramifications for the coming persecution of Christianity in America.
Is it possible for conservative, patriotic Catholics and Protestants to make a defensive stand together, or will they let 500-year-old squabbles over “statue worship” and the “idolatry of Mary” stand in the way?
Some of you might remember Kermit Gosnell. As an abortionist serving the cause of bodily self-determination, he went a little beyond the boundaries of a very permissive set of laws and was ultimately convicted of actual positive crimes – including “snipping the spines” of babies born alive. His practice, located with altruistic intention in the Philadelphia ghetto, throve for decades with the help of Democrat city officials and, toward the end, of the zealously pro-abortion Republican governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge. Gosnell’s serving time now. Eternity is waiting in the wings.
Now that the provocative title has gotten your attention, an immediate proviso: Joe Biden holds the office of President of the United States, while Jorge Mario Bergoglio holds the office of Pope. In neither the Oval Office nor the Holy See is the chair of authority empty; a body occupies it in each case, even if in Biden’s case the body is barely alive. Neither presidential nor pontifical sedevacantism as such is at issue here—all arguments in favor being academic discussions of no practical effect on the possession of the offices in question, at least in my view. The issue to be considered is what we are to make of these two office holders beyond the bare possession of their respective offices. A number of disturbing parallels are apparent.
ROME IS WITHOUT a pope. The thesis that I intend to support can be summarized in these five words. When I say Rome, I am not referring only to the city of which the pope is the bishop. When I say Rome, I mean the world; I mean the present reality.
The pope, although physically present, in reality is not there, because he does not do what the pope does. He is there, but he does not perform his duty as successor of Peter and vicar of Christ. There is Jorge Mario Bergoglio; there is not Peter.

As I was shuffling through my Missal on Sunday, placing the ribbons in the correct places for that day and reading some meditations to prepare for Mass, I came across a beautiful reflection written by Fr. Lasance on the Holy Mass.
No matter what happens in Rome, with our most unfortunate Pope. No matter what the gods of the so-called New World Order have in store for us. Christ crucified is all that really matters today and for the next forty days of Lent.

This powerful RTV Short makes several poignant observations about the situation in which we all find ourselves, in this our post-Christian civilization.
Our cities burn, our children die, God is dead and who's to blame for it all? Who will history hold accountable for the Christ-less chaos of this insane new order?
In his epistle to the Galatians, St. Paul presented an idea on which the credibility of our Faith depends entirely:
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: if anyone preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema” (Galatians, 1:8-9).
