“Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani”

My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?
My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?

As yesterday’s post emphasized, we are called to stand at the foot of the Cross, to witness the suffering of Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Mystical Body. We are called to unite our own sufferings with those of Our Lord and His Sorrowful Mother. We cannot fulfill our duty to them if we numb our minds with spiritual glurge from the mainstream media and turn away from the unpleasant truths of what is occurring right now within the very Holy of Holies of the Faith.

You must open your eyes and see, see with your mind certainly, but also with your Catholic heart, the filth that has invaded the faith! See the detestable perversion and blasphemy being promoted in the name of a diabolical “mercy” that “loves sinners” while condemning Catholics in their own Church. A love that contradicts justice is no love at all but a diabolical perversion and yet this is the official stance of the Bishop of Rome.

We must not turn aside from our vigil, but must observe and make reparation for all the insults to our loving Savior. You cannot do that if you are busily being misinformed by the so-called Catholic media. For example, recently Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta made use of his control of Atlanta’s landmark Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in support of the disgusting perversion of the annual Atlanta Gay Pride Parade. You will not find any outrage from the mainstream Catholic media. Their readers will continue to be lulled into somnolent passivity. Consequently, they are unable to offer reparation to Our Lord. And reparation is essential! Consider for a moment how Our Lady must feel to have her own shrine used in such a way. And then make reparation.

You cannot sleep through this crisis of the faith! Avoid Catholic “info-tainment”  and get informed. It is painful, certainly, to face the daily deluge of offenses to the faith.  It pushes one to despair constantly, but we keep in mind that this is our “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabacthani” moment and the tide will soon turn. We must endure it all, every hateful bit of the attack on Him, the insults to the honor of Our Blessed Mother, all of it, to the bitter dregs so that we can bear, with them, and rise with them. “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph”. Support the true resistance (not the sedes!) by reading their articles and passing on to others, buying their books, and above all, by prayer and sacrifice. Stand with those who are every day attacked by apostate clergy and affirm the truth at every opportunity. Speak only the truth, never platitudes, without compromise.

As if this weren’t difficult enough, we must never fail in charity. Today, many traditional writers do an excellent job of reporting the evils and insults to the faith, but they sometimes lapse in charity. When we consider carefully, we understand that all those who are most hardened in sin, most determined to remake the church in their image, are most needful of our prayers and reparation. Francis is still, after all, the Pope, even though he despises the faithful he is called to serve, even though his words and actions imperil the faith of millions. And so we respect the office while simultaneously alerting others to his errors.

In this battle for the soul of the Church, we must resist the all-pervasive deceit pushed by the Bishops and their media. We cannot drift into complacency. “Then He saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death: stay you here, and watch with Me.” (Matt. 26,38)  “Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).

Pray for the Pope, pray for the clergy. Time is fleeting, Hell is everlasting.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Viva Cristo Rey!
