Twelve Days of Christmas &
Star of David Miter

The Christmas Carol
WhatPeopleAreSaying02_Cir_sm.jpg - 24011 Bytes
Dear TIA,

This was a song during an anti-Catholic persecution in a once-Catholic country. On December 26 starts the Twelve Days of Christmas, ending on the Twelfth Day, January 6, Epiphany.

The popular Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," was written in England during the persecution (1558-1820), when the Roman Catholic Faith could not openly be practiced.

It was actually a catechism song for young Catholics with different levels of meaning.

The hidden meanings of the song's gifts were intended to help children remember the lessons of their Faith. These are codified meanings of the lyrics:

"Twelve Days: Christmas to Epiphany.
"My True Love": God the Father.
"Me": every baptized soul.
"Partridge": Jesus Christ, symbolically presented as a mother partridge, which feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings.
2nd day: the Old and New Testaments.
3rd day: the theological virtues: Faith, Hope, and Charity.
4th day: the four Gospels.
5th day: the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible), telling of man's fall from grace.
6th day: the six days of Creation.
7th day: the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord.
8th day: the eight Beatitudes.
9th day: nine fruits of the Holy Ghost: charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, generosity, faithfulness, mildness, and continence (as taught in the catechism of the time).
10th day: the Ten Commandments.
11th day: the eleven faithful Apostles.
12th day: the twelve articles of the Apostles Creed.

Also during the time of persecution in England, an 18th-century English candy maker decided to make a candy commemorating Christmas.

The candy cane represents a shepherd's staff and upside down is the letter commencing the Holy Name of Jesus.

It is made of white candy to represent purity with three red stripes for the Holy Trinity and one large red stripe for Our Lord's Precious Blood later shed

Rock Dance & Clown Mass
WhatPeopleAreSaying02_Cir_sm.jpg - 24011 Bytes
TIA,

Lest anyone imagine the liturgical revolution is abating, let him observe the shenanigans that still continue at St. Louis Rock Church - which once you exposed in your Revolution in Pictures. The priest is behind the altar pausing in celebration of Mass to admire these sensual movements... Click here to watch the video.

Or maybe you prefer a clown-led communion. No reprimands coming for this kind of show, as far as I know. But just try to get a Latin Mass in one of these parishes! Click here to watch it.

TIA responds:

J.F.,

Thank you for sending us these data that we are passing on to our readers.

If we are not mistaken, however, after the display of dances you sent us, the Rock Church was chastised in an exemplary way. It was struck by lightning and severely burned on August 16, 2007. Here is the news report.

We have not heard whether it has been restored and, in this case, whether such blasphemous dances continue to this day.

Regarding the second video you sent us, do you have any specific information about it - the priest, parish, date? We would appreciate knowing so that we may post some photos of this video in our Church Revolution in Pictures.

We wish you a blessed New Year.

     Cordially,

Hello,

Would you consider placing a promotional link on your page on the San Juan Capistrano Mission?

The link would be for a website about San Diego, California.

My budget isn't enormous, but I am hoping there is a reasonable price we could arrange since it's just a tiny piece of screen real estate I'm interested in.

Please let me know if you're open to this, and if not, I appreciate your time and wish you the best of luck with your site.

     Thank You!

     D.S.B.

Communist & Muslim Influence in the W.H.
WhatPeopleAreSaying02_Cir_sm.jpg - 24011 Bytes
Dear TIA,

Here are some data I took from the Cardinal Mindszenty Report for October 2009, under the title "Did You Know." I'm sure you will be interested to know these facts and share them with your readers.

1. On September 20, 2009, the Communist Chinese flag was raised with much fanfare and expense on the secured lawn of the White House next to the American flag, to "celebrate" the 60th anniversary of the Communist takeover of China in 1949. This is the first time that a Communist flag has flown over the Capitol of the United States.

2. Since 1952, a National Day of Prayer has been observed in our country. The first Thursday in May of each year is designated as the National Day of Prayer. This year, Mr. Obama decided to cancel the ceremony at the White House in order not to "offend" anyone. However, on September 25 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. a National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion was held on Capitol Hill. The sound of amplified prayers to Allah was heard all over Washington, D.C. and the event was described by Islam scholar Robert Spencer as "ultimately about Islam superiority". ...

Please pass this on to all who are in your address book, so they can recognize the insults too. Would you really be surprised if God allowed this country to crumble? It is past time to speak out!

It's time to give back to God what belongs to God. Why do you think the Mother of God has been giving thousands and thousands of messages calling for penance and prayer over the past century? God's wrath cannot be held back much longer.

First the Ephod, Now the Star of David

TIA,

Have you seen the Pope wearing a Star of David miter?

Here and here are the links to the original photos.

The Star of David Miter
WhatPeopleAreSaying02_Cir_sm.jpg - 24011 Bytes
TIA,

What is the Star of David doing on the Pope's miter? Why isn't the Catholic symbol of the cross of Jesus Christ there instead? Seeing the Star of David there, it would appear that the Pope is not a Catholic, has no allegiance whatsoever to Jesus Christ but is instead an antichrist Jew. That's what the symbol stands for.

Certainly this is a blasphemous insult and mockery to Jesus Christ and a disgrace to the Catholic world. Truly an antichrist act by one who would call himself the Vicar of Christ. Why would any legitimate pope ever put on his miter the symbol of those who reject Christ, do not believe he is the Son of God, take His name in vain and mock Him? Could it be that he is a Communist or Masonic plant?

Do you still believe this man is the Pope of the Catholic Church?
