Dominus Vobiscum: Notes from a massgoer's underground

A prayer that needs no editing:

God our Father, source of life and freedom, through Your Holy Spirit you gave the Carmelite, Titus Brandsma the courage to affirm human dignity even in the midst of suffering and degrading persecution.

Grant us that same spirit so that, in refusing all compromise with error we may always and everywhere give coherent witness to Your abiding presence among us.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.


Clear and to the point. Clean copy.

Boulder Supermarket Shooter Identified As 21-Year-Old Ahmad Al-Issa | ZeroHedge

Chicago Newspapers

Mass killing in Colorado.

The shooting notably follows roughly one week after another shooting in Georgia directed at three massage parlors and spa, where 8 victims, including Asian women who worked at the spas, were killed. That attack prompted the media to declare that mass killings, which had disappeared from the headlines during the pandemic, have returned in the US.

And no Trump to blame it on.

O dearest St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor and give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector and my guide in the way of salvation.

Rand Paul vs. Dr. Funnyman and his masking operation . . .

A public service announcement:

Dear Patriot, I believe in science. I spent most of my life studying it and practicing medicine.

I don’t believe that’s what we are currently following in our country.

And I had a few words to say about it to the patron saint of the petty tyrants – Dr. Fauci.

Some days I seem to be the only one up here standing up.

Can I count on your to stand up with me today?

Here’s what I said to Dr. Fauci in our Senate hearing:

“If people aren’t spreading the diseases, aren’t mask mandates just theater? YOU have had the vaccine, and you’re sitting here wearing TWO masks. Isn’t that just theater?”

The truth is, it is theater. Nothing else.

But it’s worse. It’s taking your freedom. The lockdown rules are still costing people jobs and businesses

The school closures are hurting our kids

And I’ve had enough.

I will stand up here in front of every official, every petty tyrant, every camera to reach the American people and tell them – you need to say you’ve had enough too.

Will you help me wage this battle for our freedom and our economy?

I will be facing an onslaught of liberal special interest money. They will spare no expense

Can I count on your to help fight back?


In Liberty,

Rand Paul

CNN Caves and Admits Ron DeSantis’ Decision to Keep State Open Was the Right Call

Chicago Newspapers

Well, well, well.

At the time of writing, the two leading states in deaths per capita remain New Jersey and New York.

Florida is 27th.

Not to mention, Florida has a higher percentage of elderly citizens.

And with a flourishing economy, Florida is better set for the long-run than Democrat-controlled, pro-lockdown states.

If you blinked while watching CNN this morning, you might have missed it, but the cable news outlet has finally come around to admitting what so many of us have known for months: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican (AHHH!!), was right.

CNN’s Jeff Zeleny went to Florida, no doubt on a mission to see just how badly DeSantis was screwing up. He was left with no choice but to report a segment Wednesday with the truth. Florida, all things considered, is a model state for how we should have handled the…

American Airlines “Looking Into It” After John Kerry Busted Flying Without Mask | ZeroHedge

Chicago Newspapers

Being a climate czar gives you certain freedoms. E.g, —vvvv


The heck of it is, people like me take comfort from this, emboldens us, you might say, in our devil-may-care habit of walking the mean streets of Bowmanville — not kidding, it’s the ‘hood right next to ours — with mask at the ready (in pocket) for whipping out and putting on when we buy coffee or enter church.

The Crypto-Jacobin Revolution in America

Chicago Newspapers

Winding up his list of anomalies, James Kunstler asked about President Joe:

Speaking of Joe Biden, alleged to be president, he was oddly absent altogether on the front page of Monday’s New York Times, leading the curious to wonder if last Tuesday night’s Coronavirus Action speech drained his dwindling mojo for the rest of the month.

Joe, we hardly knew you.

The curious might also seek to know why Mr. Biden’s “team” is still so wound up about eradicating Coronavirus, yet eager to let tens of thousands cross the border illegally from Mexico, many of them live vectors of the virus, who are then bused all over the USA under the revived “catch-and-release” policy.

Does he know about this?

Mr. Biden’s “honeymoon” period is about over. The country had not quite discovered just how leaderless it is. Will it come as a shock to find out? After all…

Prayer to St. Joseph for a happy death

Sunday sermons, weekday observations

Many traditions hold that Joseph died in the arms or presence of Jesus and Mary.

It’s a consoling image that has led the Church to proclaim him the patron saint of a happy death.

Here is a prayer that recalls this image and can give comfort while we await death. We never know when God will call us home. In the meantime, let us prepare for that day, looking on it as a day of great joy.

Blessed Joseph, who died in the arms of Jesus and Mary, obtain for me the grace to breathe my last in praise, saying or thinking, “Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I give Thee my heart and my soul.” Amen.
