Since March 13, 2013, the Passion of Christ’s Mystical Body is right in front of us. As Pope Leo XIII prophesied, the wicked dragon is pouring out,
“as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.
“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered. “
In the holy month of Our Lady’s Rosary last year, Pope Francis committed an offense against God that still cries out to Heaven for vengeance. He called together a Synod of Bishops, ostensibly to address the challenges that face Catholic families. However, it is clear now, the pope and the people who placed him in office were carrying out a malicious agenda. At the close of that last Synod, Pope Francis gained the unique distinction of becoming the first pope in the history of the faith to insist on the inclusion of pro-sodomy language in an official Church document – an unheard of affront to the Holy Bride of Christ.
“Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community”. Followed by a question to the bishops of the whole world: “are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a fraternal space in our communities?“ This is the language of FrancisChurch. It is certainly not, and cannot ever be – the language of the Holy Catholic Church.
And now we shall have the final stage of this farcical Synod, where reports of the conclusions are prepared before the Bishops even have an opportunity to discuss the issues, much less come to conclusions. The Moto Proprios establishing no-fault annulments (“catholic divorce”) have obviated the Synod; and the German Bishops under Marx have already issued their ultimatum establishing the “right” of those living defiantly in persistent mortal sin to add Eucharistic sacrilege to their burden of sins.
The powers behind the Pope, Cardinals Kasper and Danneels are both 82 years old and desperately aware that they are reaching the end of their time. They are in a dead heat to see their vision of the Church foisted on the world. Now, they have a Pope after their own image, the Most Humble and Merciful Pope Evah®, they are becoming impatient and a bit sloppy in their eagerness to push their agenda. Catholics have learned a lot since the previous Synod. They have been alerted by the excellent reporting of many vatican watchers and this Synod will not slip under the radar.
The faithful were blindsided at the 2014 Synod; no one expected the Pope would override his own Bishops. Last time around, no one expected that the Bergoglio/Kasper/Danneels faction would arrogantly prepare a mid term report of the proceedings (relatio) before the Bishops had even discussed the items. No one expected the Pope would retain the controversial and rejected paragraphs in the final report in violation of the Synod’s own rules. But it is different now. Catholics around the world are awakening to the agenda pushed by these vulgar, arrogant men.
All across the world, the Catholic faithful are taking note. Although many Catholics are just beginning to get a glimmer of the true extent of the catastrophe, many of our priests now know what is at stake and have become aware of their ordinaries’ complicity in the erosion of the Faith. Many have made great sacrifices in order to learn and offer the true Mass; they have stood their ground against militant progressive laity, against those who invaded the sanctuaries after Vatican II.
To all the weak and effeminate Bishops, know this: the faithful are watching you, and this time they will not be cowed by demands to obey prelates who themselves are disobedient to God’s clear teachings on marriage and the sacraments. Unlike the Second Vatican Council and the earlier Synod, This is the time for the faithful laity and priests to come to the defense of the Church, by observing and alerting others, and by prayer, and penance.
As so often happens, Rorate just posted a really nice article that goes very well with this one. Here is the link:
“The Mass, Prayer, the Rosary, nothing else can prevail”. From Lord of the World, by Msr. Robert Hugh Benson:
“Holy Father—the mass, prayer, the rosary. These first and last. The world denies their power: it is on their power that Christians must throw all their weight. All things in Jesus Christ—in Jesus Christ, first and last. Nothing else can avail. He must do all, for we can do nothing.”
Knowing that is the beginning of wisdom, no matter what the age we are living in !
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
