Thank you for your prayers and patience. It’s not at all clear if we can continue posting, but will venture another attempt. It’s more than a bit daunting, to raise one’s voice above the whirlwind, while struggling to avoid being swept away. Yet we must understand what is happening here. We must put the Synod in its proper context. To do that, understanding Fatima’s urgent message is essential, as is a clear grasp of this Pope and his coterie, the people who pushed to put him on the See of Peter and the people he has promoted and gathered around him. There is a solid commonality of interests here.
Look at the images a moment. The reign of Francis the Merciful is indeed sweeping all before it, and like some cheap movie the melodramatic moments continue to flash before us,
Che Guevara looming over yet another of the Pontiff’s sacrilegious Masses. In Havana, it is reported (here) that Francis used the words at Consecration, “For all”, instead of, “For many”. Yet another instance of his disdain for the Mass.
The iconic photo op with Fidel Castro: Reputable blogs report that Francis himself requested the meeting with Castro. I recall that Fidel Castro famously bragged at one time, “I had a good day today – I killed a priest!”. Reportedly this referred to his having strangled a priest with his hands. Hands this Pope wanted so badly to shake (in admiration?). We don’t know the whole story, Perhaps, in Castro’s defense, the priest was a neo-pelagian pharisee. And now on to America. My heart just sinks.
You would think, a gathering called the World Meeting of Families, which I believe was founded by Pope John Paul II, would be an excellent venue to emphasise the importance of the traditional Catholic family. But you would be naive. Lepanto Institute has the truth about the bunch of pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, liberals running the show. So brace yourself for more iconic pictures like this:
The jovial visage above belongs to no less than Msgr. Vincenzo Paglia, appointed by Francis President of the Pontifical Council on the Family, who wants the world to know the Vatican’s determination to adhere to the agreed-upon agenda that: “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community” and that we must be “capable of … accepting and valuing their sexual orientation”.
The most disheartening factor in all this is not the relentless drive of Pope Francis and his wrecking crew, it is the stunning refusal of most so-called faithful Catholics to even care about it. These people have just hunkered down in the pig sty, comfortable in their protestantized “liturgy”, blithely ignoring the ongoing, ever-expanding “lavenderization” of the clergy. None of the professional Catholic media was alarmed by the news that the one of the Pope’s most intimate friends, Archbishop Fernandez, who helped write Evangelium Gaudium and Laudato Si is noted for writing an erotic book, “Heal me with your mouth, the art of kissing”.
They all just yawned when Pope Francis appointed Timothy Radcliffe as Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. Radcliffe famously stated (see here) about same sex “love”,
“We cannot begin with the question of whether it is permitted or forbidden! We must ask what it means, and how far it is Eucharistic. Certainly it can be generous, vulnerable, tender, mutual and non-violent. So in many ways, I would think that it can be expressive of Christ’s self-gift.”
The purpose of all these photos is to illustrate as graphically as possible, that our battle is against the “rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” (Ephesians 6, 12)
How Can We Reach People with the Message of Fatima?
The message of Fatima is a warning against disobeying God, and a call to prayerful repentance, reparation and true restoration of the faith. The Church’s blatant refusal to heed this message has resulted in a darkening of the intellect, a coarsening of the sensibilities and a diabolical disorientation. Look at the pictures and captions above, consider the Novus Ordo liturgies, the ugly and sterile architecture, look again at the pictures above, consider the crass tastes of Pope Francis, i.e., his preference for Patti Smith, his crude slap-down of Catholic mothers’ “breeding like rabbits” etc. Tell me, other than diabolical disorientation, what else would make Cardinal Dolan so comfortable with the perversions of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”? Pray for them, for they cannot help themselves.
The Message of Fatima is more urgently needed with each fresh assault from the Argentine pontiff. I have failed to call people to Return to Fatima, my time is rapidly passing. So many brave warriors of the faith are gone now. I used to think how ironic that someone as ill-equipped as I would presume to take a public forum and strive for a goal that much greater and more gifted minds had not accomplished.
To those few who read these posts, please do redouble your efforts, both to prayer and penance and to alerting others, if possible. Pope Francis released his infamous Moto Proprio Mitis Iudex on Our Lady’s Birthday and it will take effect on the Feast of her Immaculate Conception. The insult is inescapable. Between these two dates will be the final Synod in the Month of the Holy Rosary. For how long now has Our Lady been warning that she is becoming unable to restrain the wrath of Our Lord? That is why I recently posted on Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora’s prophecy,
” … the Mother of God ceased to ask mercy for the world, and instead requested justice from the Eternal Father. Clothed in His inexorable Justice and full of indignation, He turned to the world…”
How many people saw that post? How many cared? A personal detail, my husband and I are unable to attend the SSPX Chapel which is nearly two hours away, and usually attend the Traditional Latin Mass in a Novus Ordo parish. Of the three priests there, two of them have given homilies of effusive praise for Pope Francis determination to destroy the Church’s teaching on the indissolubility of marriage. And the local Latin Mass community just yawns.
Regardless of what happens to me, or any of us, the fact remains:
It has been given to the Immaculate Heart of Mary to save the Church in this crisis. It is Our Savior’s will that this crisis will be resolved by recourse to her. Will we be her children and throw our efforts into this heavenly plan, or will we be carried off by the torrent of evil?
Thoughts of a dry brain in a dry season…
My Jesus mercy!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, save your children!
