“What struck Arendt was Eichmann’s “curious, but authentic, inability to think.”

“However monstrous the deeds were, the doer was neither monstrous nor demonic, and the only specific characteristic one could detect in his past as well as in his behavior during the trial and the preceding police examination was something entirely negative: it was not stupidity but a curious, quite authentic inability to think.”

“The appropriately named “Annunciation novena” begins on March 25th and ends on Christmas Eve; the length our Blessed Mother carried Jesus in her womb. 

This 9-month novena is one of the longest (if not the longest) novenas we Catholics can pray. Much like the 54-day Rosary novena, this novena is usually done for intentions that seem “impossible.” Because of the length and the timing, it’s considered to be one of the most powerful novenas you can pray.

There is one stipulation that doesn’t exist with other novenas: you cannot pray for more than 3 intentions with this novena.” 

Novena as follows, 

Nine month novena:
Hail, Holy Queen,
Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve;
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy towards us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus.
O clement, O loving,
O, sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, most holy mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Virgin of the Incarnation,
a thousand times we greet thee,
a thousand times we praise thee
for thy joy when God was incarnated in thee.
Because thou art so powerful
a Virgin and Mother of God,
grant what we ask of thee for the love of God.
*Here state your first intention.*
*Repeat all of above and then state your second intention.*
*Repeat all of above and then state your third intention.
Remember, O most Gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of Virgins,
my mother.
To thee do I cry,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
*Pray a Hail Mary*

Ash Wednesday In today’s Gospel reading (Matt. 6:1-6, 16-18), Jesus says that we should not perform righteous deeds in order to be seen and then follows up on that with three examples to clarify what he means.

via Hong Kong arrests call to mind the “knock on the door at the dead of night” and the rounding up of opposition voices by the NKVD/KGB, the Gestapo, Securitate, the Stasi, and the rest. The methodology and practices of the Cultural Revolution along with the totalitarianism and intolerance of authoritarian States should be consigned to history, not mimicked in Hong Kong. The authorities in Hong Kong should be using all their energy and resources to fight the Coronavirus not harassing and intimidating proponents of democracy. These arrests represent a truly shocking and very serious setback for ‘one country, two systems’ and Hong Kong’s freedoms. — David Alton

Shown by Matthew Taylor: 

PREPARING FOR LENT by the Priests of the Congregation of St. Paul, 1893
Which of us, dear brethren, has such perfect spiritual health that he does not need to call upon Christ, our all-merciful physician? We are all crippled, blind, and sick. The great remedy by which we must be healed is faith. We see how the blind man in today’s Gospel was made whole by faith. In another place we read of the woman with an issue of blood made well by faith. And in many other parts of Scripture faith is put down as our great healing remedy.
Thank God, we have received the great blessing of the Catholic faith! But is our faith what it ought to be? Is it a living faith? If we have a living faith it will show itself by our deeds. Let us examine ourselves today as to our intentions for the coming Lent. How much practical faith shall we find in ourselves? “Faith without good works is dead.” How can we expect that such faith will make us whole? Are you dreading the approach of this season of penance? Are you calculating the easiest terms upon which you can get through it? Do you look upon it as an evil time, which must be borne with, but out of which you expect to get nothing but discomfort?
If you look upon Lent in this spirit, you are no true follower of Christ and the Cross–your faith is not a living faith. And a dead faith is worse than useless, for such a faith can abide only in the lukewarm, of whom the Holy Ghost speaks thus: “Would thou wert cold or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.” Beware lest your present lack of the Christian spirit of penance be the beginning of your casting forth!
But do not misunderstand and think that we must relish this coming season of penance, in our lower natures, just as a hungry man relishes his dinner. That is not the kind of relish we are bound to have. Although we may have an involuntary horror of penance, if we, nevertheless, appreciate our need of mortification, and are determined to make the most of this opportunity, all the more because we instinctively dread it, we show that God has at least a large part of our hearts. He wants the whole of them, saying: “My son, give Me thy heart.” But if we keep a part for our miserable selves, in His mercy, though grieved, He will not condemn us.
But if any one has not at least a determination to try, he may well tremble at his condition. If he thinks he can safely put off his repentance to his death-bed, he deceives himself. The odds against such a man’s being saved are tremendous. Does it not stand to reason that an ordinary man who has spent his life in sin cannot, unless by a miracle of grace, accomplish in a short hour, or perhaps less time, what it has taken good men a lifetime to do? The dying sinner may persuade the priest that he has repented, but is it not because he has deceived himself in his fear of death? If we could test his repentance by offering him ten years more of life, would he persevere in his good intentions? If he has resolved not to sin any more for the sole reason that he has no chance left him for doing so, his repentance is a sham, and all the absolutions of all the priests that have ever lived cannot save his soul. “As a man lives, so shall he die.” Is it not easier to repent now, while you are able, than upon your death-bed, when disease and sin have almost robbed you of reason?
Have a living faith which will show itself by deeds! And let the prayer of the blind man be the prayer of each of us, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy upon me.” And let us not cease until Jesus answers us, “Thy faith hath made thee whole.”

“Matt Walsh on the reality of Satan”

“It is important to note how Luke begins his account of the temptation. He says that Christ “was led” to the desert by the Holy Spirit “to be tempted by the Devil.” We are meant to understand that Jesus was not caught off guard by any of this. It was no sneak attack by Satan — at least not a successful ambush. Our Lord went out there to meet him and engage with him. And He did actually engage. He could have swatted the Devil away like a fly. He could have denied the Evil One permission to approach Him in the first place. Instead, He talks to him. He seems almost to humor him.”

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
