“A successful spiritual war, like any other war, requires a well-ordered supply chain, provisions and planners, a kind of spiritual logistics if you will.”
Pope Bergoglio continues unchecked in his disastrous papacy despite the best efforts of the brightest minds of the faithful. Every action our Bishops, priests, theologians and faithful, that is, their Dubia, open letters, petitions and so on, have not had much effect on the slippery character now in control of the Church. In fact, the Church appears dangerously close to the most terrible schism the world has ever seen. (Rorate Caeli).
Why is nothing availing us? What can we do that we have not tried? Is it possible at this point to defeat the enemy which is destroying the Church from within? It is not only possible to defeat this enemy, it is inevitable!
The message of Fatima offers the solution and the only uncertainty is how long before sufficient of the faithful wake up to this wonderful spiritual armory at our disposal. One benefit of Our Lady of the Rosary’s campaign for victory is that it serves to open up the channels of grace so necessary for the success of those who are spearheading the great initiatives to challenge Pope Francis and deal with his heretical actions and pronouncements. To put it more plainly: We do not need to be world class theologians, or renowned canonists, or widely read commentators on the Church crisis. Although we are merely the faithful and we have no particular recognition or training or status, on our knees with rosary in hand and hearts united to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts, we are able to pray channels of life-giving grace into this battle which is being waged. There is a time and a place for warriors to act and those who stand up for the truth and battle the errors of this pope are to be commended, for they risk their careers, their reputations and all too often they are betrayed by those who should support them. Now this is our chance to contribute, the task we are called to do.
For this spiritual war, like any other war, requires a well-ordered supply chain, provisions and planners, a kind of spiritual logistics if you will. In a spiritual battle, the most practical support is spiritual. That is not at all to imply that the only tactic in this war must be prayers and reparation, for that would be like saying you can win a war by providing guns and ammo without actually engaging the enemy. If we – that is, all the faithful – would work harder to spread the message of Our Lady of Fatima, and to comply with her message by living it, we would bring forth winning strategies and winning leaders. In short, we would bring forth victory.
Please review the old post on Saint John Bosco’s prophesy, “And they realized they were no longer in Rome…” The actions taken so far have been effective in drawing attention to the problems and reminding for our poor weak Bishops to do the work that they are consecrated to do. In other words, they have been effective in awakening many of the faithful to the realization that we “are no longer in Rome”. But as Saint John Bosco shows us, the victory will come from Our Lady and her angels once sufficient obedience has been offered. Remember the lesson of Lepanto, where Christian military forces were given the victory by Our Lady of the Rosary, because the faithful and the warriors offered fervent prayers and penances. And Our Lady of the Rosary became Our Lady of Victory. Thus it will be again!
The spiritual chastisement involves being helpless in the face of the ancient enemy which now possesses the citadel of the faith. This is to help us re-learn humility, that we might carry our cross with Our Lord in this bitter Passion of the Church. It is accompanied by the material chastisement which is about to escalate to a level not seen before. For us little ones, we are called to wage spiritual war, making use of our arsenal, supplied by Our Lady. A caution is appropriate here – this spiritual war is not without great peril. For the same ancient enemy attacking the Church has legions upon legions dedicated to destroying the souls of those of us who are. supporting our armed forces in this battle. Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint John of the Cross, Saint Jane Chantal and so many others have written much on the spiritual challenges of this way before us. I hope to be able to share some insights to help us, God willing.
Meanwhile, please return to the Message of Fatima, know it, share it and live it! We have souls to save and a spiritual battle to win!
