Today is for venting … ;-) … Wednesday, September 18

Crowned Madonna, Rokitno, Poland, 1671

If you consider yourself Christian and call Jesus Lord you might like to think about what position that gives Mary.

A Rosary Meditation … The Fifth Glorious Mystery, the Coronation … Well, I was web searching, looking for a good quote or passage from a book, relevant to the Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth for today’s post. I found other things instead. It’s hard to understand the venom, putting it mildly, that so many have towards Catholic doctrine. Especially when, given what they say and how they say it, they obviously have absolutely NO idea what it is they’re talking about. (Yes, I am on a stump. I’ll get down momentarily.) Its one thing to make an argument based on honest information, it’s another to willingly walk in ignorance and take obvious pride in it. So this post? Its going to be a little different. And to the point. The Blessed Virgin Mary IS Queen of Heaven and Earth. It is a: Theologically provable, b: With Biblical basis, c: With historical and cultural precedence, both worldly and Divine, d: A Dogma of THE Church and NOT a concoction of some manmade denomination, e: A truth that all WILL believe and accept, either in this life or the next. Which means, bluntly, the easy way or the hard way. And am I about to elucidate on each of these points? Hardly. I challenge naysayers to crack a book for themselves, A CATHOLIC BOOK with the IMPRIMATUR, and figure it out for themselves. One good way to study and a good study tool to always have on hand, this by way of suggestion, is to hold the book with BOTH hands. Which thing necessitates laying bias DOWN.

Today … There are a multitude of saints on our calendar today. Every one of them was a REAL saint. Every real saint is subject to proper AUTORITY. They are NOT loose canons, they do NOT go their own way. Every REAL saint has a King. Jesus. Every real saint understands that Jesus has a MOTHER. Every real saint KNOWS that the mother of the King IS the Queen Mother. Every real saint has Mary as their Queen. And they are happy to acknowledge her as such.

Think … “You may have heard it said that Catholics are not allowed to think for themselves; you may even believe it. And as long as you can believe things like that you will remain safely out of reach of any appeal which the Catholic Church could make to your reason. But someone ought to warn you that if you are beginning to think for yourself, you won’t be able to believe it much longer. Your mind, becoming more critical with exercise, will reject this along with a number of other quaint superstitions. Another point you should consider seriously is this: you may be the kind of person who, having once begun to think about a subject, continues to do so logically until he arrives at certain definite conclusions. This phenomenon today is comparatively rare; but if you are that kind of person you will probably accept these conclusions, even though they turn your former opinions upside down, and change your whole outlook. Finally you may decide that these conclusions you have formed are so important that you cannot ignore them, and that you must do something about them. This is one of the penalties of real thinking: and it is a penalty that a man or woman is prepared to face who wishes to live a life which is really human and not just vegetable. If ever you get as far as this in thinking about the Catholic Church, then you will be in very real danger of becoming a Catholic.” ~ Rev. Herbert H. J. Crees ~

NOTE: From time to time a non-Catholic, and maybe even an ill-informed Catholic, takes exception to a post, comments, and proceeds to take me to task. It doesn’t happen often. I think most people with a bias against the Church and/or Her Doctrine wouldn’t be reading this blog anyway. But just in case someone reads the above and decides to “set me straight” you might like to know that such comments are never answered and ALWAYS marked as spam. The blessed Virgin Mary IS MY QUEEN. And I don’t change my residency from one kingdom to another, and there are currently two of them with the other camp under the reign of Satan, just because a human being takes offence.
