Abide in My love

A message we repeat often, because it is so essential for all of us in this barren landscape of the Church today, is the need for true charity and true obedience, that is, the charity which first of all affirms the rights of Jesus Christ, the true Head of His Church.

After instituting the Sacrament of His Love on Holy Thursday, Our Lord commanded His Apostles, and by them, us,

“Abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love … This is My commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you”. 

In Anne Catherine Emmerich, The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. (TAN Books) In Section III, Chapter 1, she recounts the following prophecy which was part of the agonies experienced by Our Lord in the Garden of Olives.

After describing satan and his legions attacking Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Garden, and the multitude of men, who appeared as though blinded, who attacked Our Lord, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich related,

Betrayed with a kiss …

“it was made known to me that these apparitions were all those persons who in divers ways insult and outrage Jesus, really and truly present in the Holy Sacrament. I recognised among them all those who in any way profane the Blessed Eucharist. I beheld with horror all the outrages thus offered to Our Lord, whether by neglect, irreverence, and omission of what was due to Him; by open contempt, abuse, and the most awful sacrileges …

After a bit more describing the offenses to Our Lord in His Sacrament of Love, Blessed Anne says,

“I saw many others in which worldly, tasteless, unsuitable ornaments had replaced the magnificent adornments of a more pious age. I saw that often, the poorest of men were better lodged in their cottages than the Master of heaven and earth in His churches. Ah, how deeply did the inhospitality of men grieve Jesus, who had given Himself to them to be their Food! … In consequence of all this, I saw the weak scandalized, the Adorable Sacrament profaned, the churches deserted and the priests despised. This state of impurity and negligence extended even to the souls of the faithful, who left the tabernacle of their hearts unprepared and uncleansed when Jesus was about to enter them, exactly the same as they left His tabernacle on the altar. …

“I saw irreverent Christians, sacrilegious priests, crowds of tepid and unworthy communicants, wicked soldiers profaning the holy vessels, and servants of the devil making use of the Holy Eucharist in the frightful mysteries of hellish worship. Among these bands, I saw a great number of theologians, who had been drawn into heresy by their sins, attacking Jesus in the Holy Sacrament of His Church, and snatching out of His Heart, by their seductive words, a number of souls for whom He had shed His blood.”

To those who are devoted to the Faith, it often seems clear that those among the hierarchy who are undermining the Faith, are filled with malice against Our Lord, and that makes us, to an extent, bitter enemies of them. However, St. Paul is a perfect example for us in these chaotic and confused times. He urged the Jews to kill St. Stephen, but he was ignorant at that time, and when he was confronted with Christ, he adored Him and surrendered his will and his life to serving Our Lord Jesus Christ in the most exemplary manner.

We must obey Our Lord’s words at this time in history!  From the Cross, He gives us His example, as He prayed for those who brutally crucified Him, and still crucify Him today, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do”. He still commands us, “Abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love … This is My commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you”.

 

We need, all of us, to pray for these poor men, our Bishops and Cardinals, who have decided on a false obedience instead of the true loving affirmation of Christ’s own truth, the dogma of the faith entrusted to them for the spiritual nourishment of their flocks. True loving and humble obedience serves Our Lord Jesus Christ, it does not betray Him in His own Church.Those prelates who fail to correct the pope in his errors do not do so from loving obedience but from craven fear. They do not serve Our Lord Jesus Christ, but Judas, Luther and the other enemies of Christ.

One of the first and most important messages of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima was that there is indeed a place which is hell, and many, many souls go there. Think on this. Think. And pray and do penance.

Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thine enemies!
