Modesty & Transubstantiation of the World
This Canadian man
in 2020 what is happening. It is what all of us think…
On a popular “trad Catholic” meme page on Instagram (
), one of the admins, a young man named Ricardo, made a meme post accusing traditionalist ladies of “fake modesty.”
He explains that many traditionalist women who dress modestly are trying to “relive the Victorian era,” tend towards “classism,” and indulge in “vain fashion.”
Ricardo is not the only so-called "trad" with such a petty attitude towards ladies who dress properly and encourage modest attire. Unfortunately, this shameless animosity towards modesty is common among young “trads,” especially men - the last time I checked, his post had almost 2,000 likes.
is his post:
A lot of times, modesty is interpreted as a “fashion statement”. There's this insistence of women somehow reliving the Victorian era lmao.
That's not what religious traditionalism is, this fake modesty tends to go into the direction of “classism” if anything.
“YOU'RE NOT MODEST AND YOU'RE GOING TO HELL IF YOU DON'T HAVE SKIRTS IN YOUR WARDROBE.”
Common sense dictates that both genders should be covered up adequately, so as to not inspire lust in others (which is a main patristic argument made in favor of women covering up) But it's also according to the state of life. Not all women can afford to dress like that.
And it takes an even WILDER turn, when there's women that say that if you're not a “degree-less,” stay at home wife, you're not truly a traditional Catholic lmao.
A woman can be very traditional and modest when she knows her place, is a good partner to her spouse, is devout in her faith, is almsgiving, etc. The outward clothing expression of modesty is good, but it should serve as a reminder that modesty consists ultimately of interior qualities. And not vain fashion.
Here is my response, which I shared to the story of my Instagram page (
With a little bit of effort and a willingness to embrace her cross, even a lady with a very small budget can build up a suitable wardrobe of modest and feminine clothing.
From the experiences of many ladies I know who have tight budgets, including myself, the problem of limited money can be easily overcome by searching carefully for clothing, gradually building a collection, and with the help of Our Lady.
Modesty and dressing properly has nothing to do with “classism.” Throughout history, poverty never stopped women from dressing with modesty and dignity.
The popularity of such crass memes and attacks on traditionalist women among the “trad” Catholic youth reveals how deeply the Revolution has touched my generation.
May Our Lady continue to provide graces to ladies who choose to rise above human respect and dress with dignity, in spite of the childish bullying that comes even from within traditionalist circles.

Transubstantiation of the World
Pope Benedict celebrated his 70th anniversary as a priest. Francis greeted him warmly. Really now, does it look like they are compatriots or enemies? No disagreements or fighting here. I don’t understand the traditionalists who say they are not on the same page. Good Benedict, bad Francis. In reality, bad Benedict, bad Francis.
Benedict said something strange-sounding to me in his last public appearance, as reported
. He prayed that the Church truly contributes to the “transubstantiation of the world.” Is that orthodox teaching - sounds very new and strange to me. Could you explain what he means?
The term transubstantiation means a change made in a substance that transforms it into something more perfect. In Catholic doctrine, it is a term used to refer to the transformation of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ.
The doctrine of the Catholic Church has never identified God with His Creation. They are two completely different realities. Besides, the universe does not evolve but, according to the laws of entropy, it degrades; the universe is constantly losing energy and walking towards its end. So, the term transubstantiation cannot be applied to the world in its proper sense, or even in an analogical sense.
However, those who are adepts of the progressivist doctrine of
, popularized by Fr. Teilhard de Chardin, imagine that God – through Christ – is the soul of the world and the motor of its evolution. They also suppose that all liberated energies – material or spiritual – are concentrated in spheres that hover over the world and attract it to ascend to more perfect stages. So, the world becomes more and more perfect until the moment that it becomes divine. Hearing that Benedict XVI said the world will be transubstantiated, we see that he reveals himself to be a partisan of this wrong progressivist doctrine.
We hope this resolves your perplexity.

Conflicting Surveys about Physicians
Although one month old, this news report clearly shows how much the official organs are falsifying the data in order to give the impression that all doctors are pro-vaccine.
Majority of Physicians Decline COVID-19 Shots, According to a New Survey
The survey also showed that 54 percent of physician respondents were aware of patients suffering a 'significant adverse reaction.'
July 6, 2021 (AAPS) – Of the 700 physicians responding to an internet survey by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), nearly 60 percent said they were not “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19.
This result contrasts with the claim by the American Medical Association that 96 percent of practicing physicians are fully vaccinated. This was based on 300 respondents.
Neither survey represents a random sample of all American physicians, but the AAPS survey shows that physician support for the mass injection campaign is far from unanimous.
“It is wrong to call a person who declines a shot an ‘anti-vaxxer,’” states AAPS executive director Jane Orient, M.D. “Virtually no physicians are ‘anti-antibiotics’ or ‘anti-surgery,’ whereas all are opposed to treatments that they think are unnecessary, more likely to harm than to benefit an individual patient, or inadequately tested.”
The AAPS survey also showed that 54 percent of physician respondents were aware of patients suffering a “significant adverse reaction.” Of the unvaccinated physicians, 80 percent said “I believe risk of shots exceeds risk of disease,” and 30% said “I already had COVID.”
Other reasons for declining the shot included unknown long-term effects, use of aborted fetal tissue, “it’s experimental,” availability of effective early treatment, and reports of deaths and blood clots.
Of 560 practicing physicians, 56 percent said they offered early treatment for COVID.
Nonphysicians were also invited to participate in the survey. Of some 5,300 total participants, 2,548 volunteered comments about associated adverse effects of which they were aware. These included death, amputation, paralysis, stillbirth, menstrual irregularities, blindness, seizures, and heart issues.
“Causality is not proven. However, many of these episodes might have resulted in a huge product liability or malpractice award if they had occurred after a new drug,” stated Dr. Orient. “Purveyors of these COVID products are protected against lawsuits.”
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons has represented physicians in all specialties since 1943. Its motto is omnia pro aegroto, everything for the patient.
