Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. 2016 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas -Now here comes in the whole collapse and huge blunder of our age. We have mixed up two different things, two opposite things. Progress should mean that we are always changing the world to suit the vision. Progress does mean (just now) that we are always changing the vision. It should mean that we are slow but sure in bringing justice and mercy among men: it does mean that we are very swift in doubting the desirability of justice and mercy: a wild page from any Prussian sophist makes men doubt it. Progress should mean that we are always walking towards the New Jerusalem. It does mean that the New Jerusalem is always walking away from us. We are not altering the real to suit the ideal. We are altering the ideal: it is easier.” – G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
The Nationalism of Patrick Henry Tops Dear Leader’s “Diversity” – On the first day of the first Continental Congress, John Adams arose and stammered through a call to order and then a discussion of the purpose of the delegates being gathered there, in Carpenter’s Hall, Philadelphia. Unable to quell his nerves and speak clearly, Patrick Henry stood up and bailed Adams out, concluding the first speech given in an American legislative body “today I am not a Virginian, I am an American!” Patrick J Buchanan quotes this passage in his critique of Dear Leader Chariman MaObama’s farewell tour to the Europeans who are now “clinging” to their union their god (the EU) and their bibles (pick any modern philosopher after des Cartes). Buchanan informs Obama that he is the one on the losing end of history now and so are the Eurocrats. “Did not the Democrats just run “an us and a them” campaign? Less and less do we Americans seem to be one country and one people. More and more do we seem to be separating along religious, racial, cultural, political, ideological, social, and economic lines. If a more multicultural, multiethnic America produces greater unity and comity, why have American politics become so poisonous?” It is Obama’s “religion” that of the civil religion, that is on the wane in post-Obama ‘Muricah.
Millennials Have Chosen Their Religion And It Lost On November 8th – Pope Leo XIII tried to warn the then nascent modern world that the rise of constitutions and organized democratic governments were a diabolical replacement for the ancient and traditional governments of Christendom. Those governments if they can even be called that, largely got the Order correct and brought into existence all the beauty and majesty of “western civilization” we have so systematically tried to destroy. The God that takes away the sins of the world has been replaced by the gods that bring sin into every home: lust, pride and sloth. Peter Burfeind at the Federalist nails this with his piece: Millennials Are In Election Hell Because Politics Has Become Their God. An excerpt and a warning: “Expect the music to get more passionate, more anxiety-laden, and more despairing, because every religious movement needs its hymn-writers. Expect the movies to become over-the-top in their critiques of institutions, capitalism, and the government. Expect histrionics like never before, not seen even in the days of Ronald Reagan. Such dramatic displays will preserve the flame of gnosis in leftist hearts.” To prepare for this, we might re-read Pope Leo XIII’s encyclical Immortalé Dei.
If Mitt For Brains Romney is Trump’s Secretary of State, We Can’t Secede Soon Enough – NBC News claims they have a “source” that tells them that Mitt Romney will meet this weekend with president-elect Trump to discuss becoming Secretary of State. Folks if this is true, then we cannot make plans to secede soon enough. Romney’s warped, Israel-First view of the world almost guarantees new wars in the Mid-East and all manner of other foolish acts of “American Exceptionalism”. Heaven help us….
The Predicted End of “White, Christian America” Has Been Postponed – Will “white, Christian America” expire on the vine as so many have predicted, giving way to a minority-majority population that will rule over and then eliminate the Christian part of the equation? Philip Jenkins thinks that because inter-marrying between white-blacks-latinos and Asians is still on the rise, that there will demographically be, no “white” part of the equation. Jenkins thinks the Christian part will survive but it will be altered and a minority but will be a large minority. “Whites are not going away, and nor are Christians. One great effect of the 1965 Immigration Act was to expand vastly the range of ethnic groups in the U.S., who were overwhelmingly Christian in origin. That is true obviously of Mexicans, but also of Asian-Americans and Arab-Americans. New generations of Africans trend to be fiercely Christian. The American Islamic population, for instance, was and remains tiny as a proportion of the national total, and it will continue to do so.” The problem with the analysis is that they aren’t “Christian” because the Christian, in following our namesake, Christ, doesn’t see races, he/she sees eternal souls, each in a struggle to find the path through “the narrow gate”.

When You Hear Braveheart Scream Freedom, Rest Assured, He WASN’T A ‘Murican – “We love the sound of the word freedom, but the actual Christian practice of it? not so much”- Me. Joseph Pearce writes on this theme that the word “freedom” has lost its meaning when it is applied to actual practice. For example, “freedom” for the people of a country, actually requires their government to be deprived of the ability to raise and maintain an never-ending, standing army, yet ‘Muricah has the largest and most ancient in all the 1st world countries. Pearce sees other threats to “freedom” in how we spend our money as well. “If freedom means that I need to start thinking about the political, economic, or environmental ramifications of my chosen lifestyle, freedom can go to hell. If freedom means that I need to be aware that the things that I buy and the things that I do come at a cost to others, I’m not interested in counting the cost. If freedom means that I need to know that every dollar I spend is effectively the casting of an economic and political vote that makes the world a better or worse place for my neighbours, it’s time to forget about my neighbours.”
Trumpsanity Quote of The Day – “If one thing drove Trump supporters to the polls, it’s that they were ignored and slandered by pundits like Bouie. What’s more, the protests and cry-ins taking place on campuses across the country in response to Trump’s victory suggest that Trump’s supporters will continue to be ignored by the next generation of diploma-holding elites.” Bre Payton, The Federalist dot com
WHY Should We Unilateraly Accept The “Diversity” Of The “Blue State” Banshees – We have all been ordered by the now powerless Media Industrial Complex to accommodate the protesting sloths that are clogging up interstates, streets leading to certain universities and patches of formerly green grass-turned deadly brown-that have become unisexual potties. As Pavlos Papadopoulas notes, embracing these people’s voting choices and now their rioting choices without asking WHY, is dangerous: “…that what is other or different is, as such, good and lovable—or at least tolerable. Having understood that someone is different from us, we should respect and tolerate that person as the first step toward putting our divided country back together again. But this assumption is flawed, in that it fails to explain why we should love or even tolerate those who are different from us. Why should I not hate or condemn what is totally other than myself?” Of course the answer lies in the fact that most of those reading this are professing Christians and we are required by Commandment and Our Lord’s example to accept BUT, as we learned in the case of importing millions of Syrian refugees, we are NOT required to place our culture or cult in harm’s way.
Ron Paul To President Trump: Beware Being DeceptiCONNED – Wisdom is sometimes confused with experience and that is understandable because having a measure of the former requires a greater measure of the latter. Ron Paul has ample supplies of both and his experience informs his wise advice to President Trump: don’t get DeceptiCONNED. Paul points out that the Pentagon/Defense/Bomb-Maker Security Blanket budget does not need an increase and that our “military” does not need to be rebuilt and even if it did, the prudent course would be to recall our troops from overseas and use the savings for hardware acqusition. Paul: “Do we really need to continue spending hundreds of billions of dollars manipulating elections overseas? Destabilizing governments that do not do as Washington tells them? Rewarding those who follow Washington’s orders with massive aid and weapons sales? Do we need to continue the endless war in Afghanistan even as we discover that Saudi Arabia had far more to do with 9/11 than the Taliban we have been fighting for a decade and a half? Do we really need 800 U.S. military bases in more than 70 countries overseas?” A true test of “draining the swamp” will thus require a rollback of the empire and its welfare state a development I pray for and will be surprised to see.
The 4H Has Been Replaced By The 4 Horsemen of The Apocalypse – There is a lot of talk about the states of Washington seceding from the union to escape the evil that is the Trump states and Trumpzilla, but wait, who would escaping who? Washington is now home to an elementary school, after hours Satan Club. But the Little Lucifer Urban Achievers hope to open up their little covens in 9 communities throughout the Anti-Trump Federation.
Pro-Lifers Need To pray Up For Patience ‘Cause Unhingers Are Rampaging – What delicious irony to recall that one of the early “outrages” that “feminists” stoked among themselves was President Trump’s rebuttal to Fox News’ Megyn Kelley that “blood was coming out of her eyes coming out of her…wherever”; these same women are now in perpetual rage mode because of Trump’s choice to keep his pro-life pledges. Why? Some are threatening action to preserve the Cult of Death: “I swear to god if [Vice President] Mike Pence tries to regulate my uterus I will mail him a monthly bag of period blood”.
I swear to god if Mike Pence tries to regulate my uterus I will mail him a monthly bag of period blood
— #1 Rachel ✨ (@rachel) November 13, 2016
Rachel Zarell of MTV infamy now says the Pence Tweet was just “a joke” and any imbecile should be able to see that. No, what’s a “joke” is Ms Zarell’s sad disdain for Life and the process that God has blessed us with that creates it. Read more of Zarell’s Twitter feed for evidence of the depravity that flirting, nay, hopping in bed with, with the diabolical results in. Joy Pullman informs Ms Zarell of her errors without soliciting what can be her only cure: conversion and that’s where we’re at with the UnHinged folks. These are souls that have little or no conception of what living life as a Christian requires and unfortunately, that may not change anytime soon.
White People Have Broken The “Détente” Agreed To With Commie ‘Muricah – David Marcus theorizes that the era of previously charged, racist, hick-hayseed, homophobic white people, has ended and it isn’t coming back. Marcus’s point is that what other have called “white guilt” which turned from a powerless guilt until there was actual guilt by act of racism, morphed into a prejudice that was becoming a threat to white people and their children’s, future. And so the Trump campaign, which refused ton accept the “détente” moved the vote into Trump’s column. Marcus is blunt: “Privilege theory and the concept of systemic racism dealt the death blow to the détente. In embracing these theories, minorities and progressives broke their essential rule, which was to not run around calling everyone a racist. As these theories took hold, every white person became a racist who must confess that racism and actively make amends.” Read the whole thing at The Federalist.
Secede or Die! SodomFornia and GomOregon Have Been Invited to Join Canada – Glory be and Deo vindice! Journalists and activists in Canada have solicited their godless, soul-stained, Cult of Death bretheren and sisteren to join them as Canadians and escape the pro-life leaning clutches of the rest of what the United States has allegedly become: Bigotistan. One of the Canadians, Andrew Mercier wrote: ““To the west coast of the United States, if you want to you can all become Canadian Provinces, since you voted closer to the experiences we have as Canadian. Therefore WA, OR, NV, and CA you are now provinces, also bring all the goodness that you have to us!!!” Goodness!? If you mean exorbitant taxing of wages and property, mandated minimum wages, real-estate priced so only Elon Musk can afford it, force fed homosexuality in education which pairs nicely with afternoon Satan Societies at elementary schools and for good measure, physician assisted suicide, unregulated late term abortions and over $1 Trillion in unsecured public debt, then yes, PLEASE, take in CA, OR and WA and let the new federation begin!
If At First You Don’t Secede, Try, Try Again – At The Mises Institute there is an open letter to all the UnHinged and suicidal Hillary voters from Justin Murray: “What you’re feeling, this hopelessness, this feeling that you’re no longer represented, this feeling that people other than you are now able to dictate your way of life, this is all a result of the massive expansion of the Federal government. Elections have long ceased being voting for someone you think represents the lifestyle you want to live and are, in practice, an exercise on determining whether or not you get to impose your preferred lifestyle on someone else.” Murray basically makes the argument for secession and against the ridiculous nature of “democracy” we have been making here at Mike CHurch dot com and on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. America-Secede or Die cap anyone!?
Libs Threaten Secession So The Can Remain SodomFornia and GomOregon – Claiming that newly elected President Donald Trump is #NotMyPresident, anarcho Sodomites in Washington State, Claifornia and Oregon are making plans to secede and form their own countries; a perfectly legal and indeed practical move that I am throwing the entire weight of the CRUSADE Channel behind! I even volunteer to send FREE copies of my book “Is Davis A Traitor? Was There A Constitutional Right To Secession Previous To The War of 1861”. “In California, residents opposed to a Trump White House have showed their discontent on Twitter with the hashtags #Calexit and #Caleavefornia. Meanwhile, the Yes California Independence Campaign, which has about 3,000 members and has for years called for the state to break from the union, backs a ballot measure that would create a special election to decide on a secession.” I also volunteer and promise all of my efforts to assist in these campaigns including running radio ad campaigns for them! “In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children,” the group says in a 33-page “CalExit Blue Book.” To our friends in SodomFornia we say “Deo Vindice!”
DeceptiCONNED? War, War, War Hawks Want One Of Their Own As Secretary of State, Pres. Trump Should Say: “How About Noooo” – The DeceptiCONS at the has been rag National Review are now all ginned up to assist President Trump’s Secretary of State and are pushing the man who said “we killed tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of American citizens during the Civil War, without access to due process, and it was the right things to do.” Bolton, getting anywhere near the Trump administration is a bad, bad idea that would almost guarantee ‘Muricah and Trump would pick up where George Bush left off. If Trump really is going to “make America great again” he’ll need a modest statesman as SOS, so, why not appoint his buddy Senator Jeff Sessions or…wait for it, Ron Paul?
The End of The Secular World As We Know it? – Stephen Turley wonders if the election of Donald J Trump represents an end of one era and the start of another. Specifically, the end of a secular ‘Muricah and the restart of an Age of Faith? I have my doubts but Turley’s point is worth considering: “Moreover, this turn towards nationalist sentiments that we are seeing all over the globe actually entails a resurgence of historic religious identities and moral commitments, largely due to the interrelationship between nationalism and revitalized traditions. In the face of threats to localized or national identity by globalized secular processes, populations tend to reassert symbols of cultural identity such as language, custom, tradition, and religion as mechanisms of resistance.” Turley’s point that religious life my be the fallback position when the madness of the modern age has run its course is a good one. I often point out that the surge in interest of the Traditional Latin Mass and the concurrent surge in the scholarly study that requires is the best indicator thus far but make no mistake folks, the rioters and protestors, flipping off the new Trump “establishment” aren’t going away and neither are the children of the Nephilim spawn of Lucifer and Maragret Sanger.
Why Is Trump The President Elect? Because The Prideful Media Industrial Complex Thought He Was An Idiot; Newsflash: He Isn’t – From the start of campaign 2016, when it became apparent that Trumpzilla was The Real Deal, I began telling #NeverTrumpers [paraphrased]: “Listen, you don’t amass that kind of fortune, in so many different industries, in so many different locations, by accident. The idea that this guy is foul-mouthed loose cannon who was privileged by his daddy’s wealth and success and he was skating by on “old money” just doesn’t comport with the facts.” Now comes my buddy W. James Antle III with the post-election charge that “maybe Trump isn’t so stupid after all?!” From Antle III: “Finally, Trump believed his candidacy was powered by the same wave of nationalist, populist and anti-globalist sentiment seen in European countries. He also compared his movement to Brexit and said it would defy the polls. Bah humbug, we all said. This is no Brexit. Mostly Hispanic immigration into the United States, even of the illegal variety, cannot be compared to Muslim non-assimilation in places like France. And doubting the polls? Big dummy!” Antle then goes on to confess that those inside the Outer Circle, I describe so often on my show, aren’t very smart after all. “But Trump’s improbable victory does suggest his instincts deserve more benefit of the doubt and that we members of the chattering class deserve less.” Indeed, James, Indeed.
#NeverTrumpers Are Railing Against Divine Authority, As Sinful Pagans Have Since Pontius Pilate – The streets of major ‘Murican cities, like New Orleans are filled with screaming, crying, wailing “yewts”, demanding that Trump resign the office he just won because he “promises to rollback progress”. What’s troubling is what passes as “progress” is actually the advance of Mortal Sin renamed as “progress”. In NOLA, anarchists wailed that Trump was going to abolish laws against rape and encourage the abuse of women and the hatred of homosexuals! Think I’m making this up? Here ya go:
“I am a gay Latina woman,” Monica Jean, a New Orleans resident and Georgia native who declined to give her last name, said. “Last night, I found out that most of my country hates me.”
Monica Jean decried voters allowing Clinton’s emails to overpower Trump’s sexual-assault accusations in determining their choices Tuesday.
“This is a backlash against progress. This is a backlash against everyone who’s started to feel safe in this country,” Monica told the crowd.
“I hear people say that now that Donald Trump is in power, women who accuse people of sexual assault can sit the (expletive) down and stop whining,” she said. “I’m not whining.”
Now we can see the damage modernity has done to human reasoning. Someone who genuinely loves all human souls, because God loves them, and wishes for those souls to stop scarring themselves, is practicing “hate”? This is what the heresy of Nominalism has done and is doing.
You Can’t Commit The Kind of Sinful Crimes For 40 Years And NOT Have To Pay For It – The Daily Mail’s Richard Pendelbury’s headline today sums up what I have been clinging to since one year ago: Death of a dynasty that was rotten to its core: After 40 years of sex, lies and scandals, the Clintons are to leave public life beset by a crushing humiliation •People had simply grown tired of the Clintons, writes Richard Pendlebury •They emerged from scandal after scandal with their ambitions intact •But then, the Clintons always came with an awful lot of baggage, as this list of controversies proves . . . Yes, Yes, and Yes, then there was Hillary’s FATAL conceit: that ‘Muricans like killing their children.
Hillary Rode Off Into The Glow of Hades Rambling About A “Glass Ceiling” That Kelly Anne Conway Shattered – At Hillary’s “farewell, join me on my hypersonic sled-ride to Perdition”, the Nephilim spawn of Lucifer & Margaret Sanger whined that “the greatest glass ceiling ever remains un-shattered”. Well, that may be true, but one glass ceiling was nuked by the impressive performance of Trump’s campaign managerKelly Anne Conway. Conway orchestrated a masterful campaign that quite famously has delivered the White House to a previously never-elected neophyte. Most don’t know that Conway is a mother of four and maybe the best force of logic and reason Trump had” “Immediately after she took over the campaign, and again in the waning days of the election, Conway was credited with ensuring Trump remained exceptionally disciplined. She tethered him to a teleprompter, placed restrictions on his Twitter privileges and worked diligently to boost his appeal among women and minorities, while strengthening his existing appeal among blue collar workers and the white working class. Conway also spent months defending her ideas and strategy against the contrasting suggestions by other senior staffers, namely Manafort (before his departure) and Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon. She prevailed more often than not.” Sounds like Conway had to shatter a glass ceiling INSIDE the Trump campaign as well.
Father Frank Pavone Shows ‘Muricah What Hillary’s Obsession With Abortion Actually LOOKS Like – From Father Pavone’s FaceBook page: “Election Novena 7 — Today I am showing you a child who was killed by abortion and entrusted to us by a pathologist for burial. We have had a funeral for this baby (see some of the funerals and burials here –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNpTX-wIESs), who rests in a Memorial Chapel – -but today I am showing him to you because in this election we have to decide if we will allow this child killing to continue in America or not. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform says yes, let the child-killing continue (and you pay for it); Donald Trump and the Republican platform says no, the child should be protected. Please put this message into practice by spreading the party platform comparison piece atwww.VotingInfo.net, praying at www.ElectionPrayer.com, and carrying out the other activities discussed at www.PoliticalResponsibility.com.“
America First Was The Cry Of “Forgotten Men” Back In The 1940’s, The Trump Voters Are The New Forgotten Men – I’ve written of the origins of the “conservative movement” that track-back to those intellectuals who viewed WWII as an unjust waste of resources and human life (see my interview with Nicole Hemmer here). The rise of Trump’s popularity is, I propose, directly related to the collapse of the great grand-kids of this “conservative media”. The collapse comes in the form of the America Firsters rejecting the political order and indeed the political system as being capable of “fixing” the complete corruption of the “American System”. Trump poses a threat to this system and his defeat of 13 of this system’s best practitioners in the primaries shows the power America First is now wielding; a power, that as John Wilson points out, can end the FDR-New Deal era after a 100 year rule of tyranny. Wilson posits: “Hillary at her best would be no good for what America needs. Mr. Trump, on the other hand, may not own America First in his heart, but he feels it. As time has gone along, he has learned to express it better. He may not be the ideal spokesman for the transition into the America First era, but only someone with his combination of money, independence (George Gilder remarked that the most important five words he has spoken are, “I’m rich. I’m really rich.”) thick skin, and utter fearlessness in the face of the ruling elite can shake things up enough to begin, as he puts it, “to drain the swamp.” What replaces a swamp? The Great Black Swamp of northwest Ohio became some of the most productive farmland in the world. It would be fitting if Ohio provides an electoral pump to allow America First eventually to grow in Washington, D.C. Despite Mr. Trump’s New York business roots, America First is essentially a heartland movement, a flyover country pushback against coastal globalism, a vast patriot coalition fed up with the one world ideologues of the Ruling Class.” The fact that Trump is THIS CLOSE to being elected is a ray of hope, a glass half full, let us continue praying to Our Lady of Fatima for Mrs Clinton and her regime’s defeat.
We’re All Communists Now – The “swamp” that is Mordor on the Potomac River was not created by an outside force and it was not created by Dear Leader Chairman MaObama either. It has been 236 years in the making. John Daniel Davidson puts this into perspective stating “We’re All Communists Now.”: “His book is about the myth of the ’30s, which clothed itself in impersonal economic and historical terms but was primarily social. It was this: individuals are nothing, society is everything, and history is moving with inexorable force in a certain direction. Moreover, one must be on the right side of history, or be swept aside. “The heart of the myth of the thirties,” wrote Kempton, “was that there were no neutrals.”
America California, Secede Or Die – Those rebel spirits of Northern California continue their quest for CAXIT, for northern California to free itself from the tyrannical shackles of L.A. via Sacramento. There is to be a rally on Thursday at the state capitol demanding that the secession effort be allowed to satisfy the wishes of the people. Ask yourself the question: what if Sacramento says “go pound sand”? As Patrick Henry railed against the illegitimate power that Parliament was exerting over the colonies “we have petitioned, we have remonstrated, we have prostrated ourselves to the throne….” we all know what happened next. It is almost guaranteed that California will say no and thus force the hand of the independence seekers, as Henry said “such has been the patient suffering of these colonies”. Perhaps, patient suffering has come to an end. Hoist the Carillion de Sacre Coure.
The Final Solution: AHilla The Huns Minions Want Obama To Pardon Her – If your child comes to you and says “hey mom and dad, I want to go to law school at Albany College in upstate New York”, grab him by the ears, squeeze firmly and then vigorously shake him up and down like the kid on the Little Caesars TV commercial until the madness has left his mind or he gets vertigo, whichever comes first. Why od I recommend such harsh treatment for collegiate intentions at Albany? Because your child’s intellect will be subject to the Truth denying imbecility of one professor J Stephen Clark, who now proposes that after AHilla the Hun is elected, Obama should just issue a blanket pardon for any current or FUTURE offenses she may be charged with. Folks, I’m not making this up: “It does not take much clairvoyance to predict that Clinton’s most strident opponents may seek to extend the use criminal investigations as a political tactic to undermine her presidency if she wins the election next week. That prospect triggers a startling idea: Should President Barack Obamasimply pardon Clinton if she wins the election? A presidential pardon could short circuit some of this maneuvering.”
It’s November And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limitsI have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
