What 'Ruth' sends in, soldiers of the Immaculata must toss out


“He remains among us until the end of the world.

He dwells on so many altars, though so often offended and profaned.”

– St. Maximilian Kolbe



By Jeremy Dannebohm


During the reign of Emperor Valerian, Christians were forced underground. There, in secret, they would offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. At that time numerous Christians were imprisoned and to take them Holy Communion was dangerous.


One day after Mass a young altar boy implored the priest, “Send me! My youth will be the best shield for the Eucharist.”


His name was Tarcisius.


As Tarcisius set out to take holy communion to the imprisoned, the priest instructed him: “Remember that a heavenly treasure has been entrusted to your weak hands.”


The young boy replied, “I would die rather than let go.”


On his way to the prison Tarcisius passed a group of pagan children at play. They invited him to join them, but he refused, clutching tightly to the Most Holy Eucharist he was carrying in his breast pocket. Overcome by curiosity, the pagan children insisted that Tarcisius show them what he was hiding in his pocket. When he refused, they began to kick him and beat him with stones. Nonetheless, Tarcisius refused to surrender. He died, still clutching the Sacred Body of Our Lord to his breast.


On Ash Wednesday, February 10, 1937, Father Pedro Maldonado was offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Chihuahua, Mexico. Members of an anti-Catholic political ring stormed the Church. The priest quickly grabbed a pyx before being dragged by his hair out of the Church to the feet of Andrés Rivera, leader of the political ring. Rivera pistol-whipped Father Maldonado and his thugs beat the priest relentlessly. The pyx was tossed from Father Maldonado’s hand and the consecrated hosts were scattered about the dirt. One of the attackers shoved the Eucharist into the priest’s mouth and, mocking him, said, “Eat your last communion.” Which Father Maldonado did. He died the next day.


In the chill of a winter’s night on December 14th, 1957, Father János Brenner received an urgent request imploring him to provide a dying man with the sacrament of extreme unction. Without hesitation the 25-year-old Hungarian priest ventured out with anointing oils and the Blessed Sacrament in hand.


The request was a hoax.


As he made his way to what he thought was a sick call, Father Brenner was ambushed by Communist Revolutionaries. His attackers leapt out of the trees and stabbed him 32 times. The next morning Father Brenner’s body was found, still clutching the Eucharist in his hands, refusing to surrender the Precious Body of Our Lord.


Seven years prior to his martyrdom, Father Brenner wrote in his journal:


"Even if the road is rough, I look at your pain- ridden face and follow you. I ask you only one thing: May I always fulfill most precisely what you give to me as my vocation."


It was hot on the morning of Thursday, July 26th, 2018. Few clouds were in the sky that day as Father Jacques Hamel, an 86-year-old priest, began to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray Church in Rouen, France. However, a dark cloud descended on the church when two men stormed the Mass with knives. There, at the altar, Father Hamel knelt as one of the men slit his throat, shouting, “Allahu Akbar!”


Father Hamel’s sister, reflecting on his 58 years of priesthood, said of the slain priest, “He was transformed at the moment of consecration. The more he aged, the more it was the passion of Christ that he lived.”


On May 3rd, 2022, radical extremist group Ruth Sent Us tweeted:


“Whether you’re a “Catholic for Choice”, ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe. Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8.”


The tweet came as news spread of a leaked document from the United States Supreme Court. The document suggested that the majority opinion of the Justices was to send the issue of abortion back to the states, essentially overturning the Roe v. Wade decision.


On May 7th, 2022, Ruth Sent Us issued a follow-up tweet that read:


"Stuff your rosaries and your weaponized prayer. We will remain outraged after this weekend, so keep praying. We’ll be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries."


Since that time a handful of incidents have occurred in which members of Ruth Sent Us have disrupted the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Videos of these occurrences show the radical extremists being ushered out of the various churches by a handful of parishioners or in some cases, security guards. By and large, most of the faithful remain seated.


St. Tarcisius knew that the Eucharist is the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ and defended it with his life.

St. Pedro Maldonado knew that the Eucharist is the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ and defended it with his life.


Blessed János Brenner knew that the Eucharist is the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ and defended it with his life.


Father Jacques Hamel knew that the Eucharist is the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ and defended it with his life.


The vile, demonic creatures of the Ruth Sent Us movement recognize that the Eucharist is the Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ. However, when they disrupt the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, very few of the faithful rise to defend the Most Holy Eucharist.


Why?


I’ve heard a couple of excuses. One pastor informed me that the faithful should “remain seated in order to avoid injury to themselves or others.”


Another pastor explained to me that “if people confront these protestors, the parish could find itself facing all sorts of legal liabilities.”


The priests who offer excuses such as these are the same men who locked the churches during a pandemic when the faithful needed the Eucharist, the Divine Physician, more than ever. These are the same men who removed the Blessed Sacrament from Adoration Chapels during the pandemic for fear that one or two people praying in the Real Presence of Christ might somehow become a “super spreader.”


Today we find ourselves in a spiritual battle and we have men like these on the front lines.


Roughly 70% of Catholics consider the Eucharist nothing more than a symbol. A March 2022 survey conducted by Pew Research Center indicates that 13% of Catholics believe abortion should be legal in all cases, no exceptions. At first glance, one might conclude that faithful are pro-life. However, only 10% of Catholics believe abortion should be illegal in all cases, no exceptions. As for the rest? 43% think abortion should be “mostly legal” while 32% think abortion should be “mostly illegal.”


Therein, I suspect, lies the answer as to why most people remain seated when the creatures storm the churches shouting, “Ruth sent us!”


The Church needs more defenders of the Eucharist like Tarcisius, Maldonado, Brenner, and Hamel.


The Catholic faithful, however, were disarmed by modernism.


Pope Pius XII wrote prophetically:


I am worried about the confidences given by the Virgin to little Lucia of Fatima. This insistence by the Good Lady on the dangers that threaten the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that would be contained in the altering of the Faith in its liturgy, its theology, and its soul.


I sense all around me that the innovators want to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, throw out all of its ornaments and make it full of a sense of guilt for its historic past. Look, I am convinced that the Church of Peter must rediscover a sense of pride about its past, otherwise it will dig its own grave.


A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God, that God’s Son is only a symbol, a philosophy just like any other. In the churches, Christians will seek in vain for the red lamp where Jesus waits for them: like the woman weeping before the empty tomb, they will cry out: “Where have they taken him?”


As I have written previously, by now it should be apparent to the even the most passive Catholic: the goal of the modernist infiltrators was indeed to disarm the faithful. Setting the Church Militant up for failure in the battle between good and evil began over a half century ago and continues today under the guise of “collegiality.”


Pastoral complacency, combined with a lack of solid catechesis, will soon result in a disastrous casualty of souls.


To remedy the Church’s lack of devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament, the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops have launched a three-year “Eucharistic Revival.” Under the direction of Bishop Andrew Cozzens of the Diocese of Crookston, Minnesota, the “revival” will culminate with a Eucharistic Congress, which is expected to carry a hefty price tag of 28 million dollars. In his own words, Bishop Cozzens desires the event to have an atmosphere like that of World Youth Day or NCYC (National Catholic Youth Conference).

What Bishop Cozzens is proposing is yet another feel-good pizza party a la John Paul II. What the faithful need is manna in the form of solid catechesis. What God requests, according to the Angel at Fatima, is Eucharistic reparation — not revival.


Contrary to what the modernist “catechists” will tell you, the two are not the same.


Incidentally, Cozzens, the “Eucharist Revivalist,” has been completely silent regarding the decision by Archbishop Cordileone to ban Speaker Nancy Pelosi from Holy Communion. As I mentioned in another commentary, the action of Archbishop Cordileone will separate the USCCB men from the boys. His silence on the matter, combined with his incredibly juvenile “Revival” pitch during the USCCB Fall 2021 Assembly, have me thoroughly convinced that Bishop Cozzens is the latter.

Regarding that juvenile “Revival“ pitch, in case you missed it, here’s what happened:


Bishop Cozzens presented a flashy video highlighting “what to expect in Indianapolis.” Images of race cars, live bands, high end restaurants, an aquarium, and exciting night life flashed on the screen.


One thing noticeably absent, however, was the Eucharist.

Bishop Michael Duca (Baton Rouge, LA) pointed out to Cozzens that the faithful “are not coming to Indianapolis for the things Indy provides, but for the things the Eucharist provides.”


With a puzzled look, Cozzens replied, “That’s good feedback. Thank you.”


When it comes to reigniting Catholic devotion to the Most Holy Eucharist, re-catechizing, and promoting the urgent need for reparation, Bishop Cozzens is simply not the man for the job. In fact, he’s part of the problem, not the solution.


The USCCB is sending a boy in to do a man’s job. This is further proof that the agenda of the infiltrators continues: Cozzens is the byproduct of a major phase in the disarmament of the faithful.


An excerpt from the book In Sinu Jesu reads:


So many souls make little or no progress in the holiness that I desire for them because they do not trust in My grace. They attempt to change themselves by making use of purely human means, and forget that I am all-powerful, all-merciful, and ready at every moment to heal and sanctify those who entrust themselves, with their weaknesses and sins, to My most loving Heart. I do not ask for perfection from those whom I have chosen to be My friends; I ask only that they give Me their imperfection and the burden of their sins, and allow Me to do for them what, of themselves, they are incapable of doing. Did I not say to My Apostles on the night before I suffered, “Without Me, you can do nothing?”


The Catholic Church, as Pope Pius XII prophesied and In Sinu Jesu notes, has resorted to “purely human means.”


Human means by which hand sanitizer has replaced Holy Water.


It’s not as though humans don’t have a desire to experience things not of this world. Pilgrims flock to Medjugorje with the hope to witness some sort of alleged Marian apparition. When word spreads that a statue of Our Lady is weeping blood, cars line up for miles hoping to see the event. There's a reason why the Blessed Mother is weeping, mind you. It's because the greatest miracle of given to us by Our Lady, the gift of Her Son, is largely overlooked.


It seems we are, for the most part, blind to the reality that the greatest miracle, indeed the closest thing to Heaven we will ever experience on earth, rests in every tabernacle in every Catholic Church in the world.


St. Alphonsus Liguori said:


“One thing is certain, that next to Holy Communion no act of worship is so pleasing to God, and none is so useful, as the daily visit to our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament dwelling upon our altars. Know that in one-quarter of an hour which you spend before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament you attain more than in all the good works of the rest of the day.”


The extremist group Ruth Sent Us is evil. As such, they seek to attack the very source and summit of the faith: the Most Holy Eucharist.


Meanwhile, the faithful remain seated in the pews.


Do those who remain seated remember or even know that the very thing Ruth Sent Us seeks to desecrate was the weapon used by St. Claire to protect her convent?


The Eucharist, therefore, should be defended at all costs.


If an angry mob storms the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, it is our duty to rise and extract these vile creatures from our churches by whatever means necessary. In the battle between good and evil there is no time to concern ourselves with political correctness or legal liability. We have a duty as Catholics to kick evil where it hurts – relentlessly – risking even our own lives to protect that which matters most: the Precious Body of Our Lord.


If you’re not prepared to be like St. Tarcisius, St. Pedro Maldonado, Blessed János Brenner, and Father Jacques Hamel, then by all means remain seated. The USCCB has a pizza party planned for you. The rest of us are soldiers who realize that the time for basic training has expired. We now find ourselves in an epic battle between good and evil. Ready or not, the time has come.


Rise, then, and defend the Most Holy Eucharist by any means necessary.


What 'Ruth' sends in, soldiers of the Immaculata must toss out.
