NOTE: As of 1 August, 2018, this post has set a record of sorts as just about the most disliked of all my many disliked posts. That is quite an accomplishment. And so, I will today double down on this issue. If Catholics continue to ignore the spiritual weapons Our Lady of the Rosary offers us, they will bring upon themselves and us all, a rapidly worsening chastisement, which will be all-encompassing, that is, both material and spiritual. And if you do not believe that the spiritual chastisement can get any worse than McCarrick, Bergoglio et al., you will perhaps be in for a rude awakening. Reparation. Reparation. Reparation.
At long last the network of homosexual predators and enablers who have usurped power in the Church is being noticed and many prominent Catholics are speaking out and declaring indignantly, “Something must be done!” However, any successful remedy depends upon a correct diagnosis. Ill-considered actions run the risk of worsening the situation.
The burgeoning “Catholic metoo” movement being promoted by some Catholic media is an example. Driven by the public humiliation of seeing our holy Church become a nest of filthy swine, and now a mockery before the world, it is entirely understandable that prominent professional Catholic commentators now feel driven to take action. Many of them have been quite critical of those of us who have worked for years to point out the corruption. We have been vilified for criticising the hierarchy, especially the “Holy Father”. Now those who earn their living by advising Catholics how they are to interpret church news are urging followers to participate in a Catholic meToo movement to report sexual harassment by any homosexual cleric. This has certainly had a salutary effect on the secular media, hasn’t it! You will see that the metoo movement, like all worldly movements only serves the enemy.
Diagnosing the Problem
The Lavender Mafia, such a colorful name, grotesque as the lifestyle it represents. But in reality it is a symptom, not the problem, not the primary problem at all. The problem is that satan has been welcomed into the Church by churchmen who have betrayed their consecrations and consciously, wilfully defied the true Head of the Church, Our Lord Jesus Christ. The problem is that the Church has fallen into the hands of the ancient enemy of God. It is Satan’s goal to make the Bride of Christ a mockery, just as he did to Christ Himself on Golgotha.
This is the Spiritual Chastisement. It is above all a spiritual problem, in fact, it is the most tremendous, all-encompassing challenge the Church has faced in its long history of persecutions. The enemy within has at once corrupted the faith and the morals of our churchmen. Make no mistake, this corruption is a direct attack on Christ Himself. Reparation to Him must be made in order to open our hearts once again to His grace, to bring us the guidance we need. Without His grace, we are blind and we will fail.
It is the disobedience of Church leaders which caused this, and the remedy to be applied begins with reparation to Jesus Christ for that disobedience. We must return in humility and obedience to the very model, the prototype of perfect obedience, the Immaculate Mother of God, to whom alone it has been given to lead us to return to Him, to restore the Church in all her splendour, holiness and beauty.
Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the only sure path, please consider this prayerfully and do not get distracted by political solutions to spiritual problems.
This spiritual chastisement will not end until reparation has been made, either by willing and generous hearts of those who remain faithful or, alternatively, reparation will be extracted from a proud and arrogant, disobedient humanity. There is but little time left. If we were to truly return to Our Lady’s message at Fatima, and do as she requested, we might well see what St. Hildegard foretold in “The Figure of a Woman“. For today, we simply offer our repost:
Today, the last day of the month of the Precious Blood of Jesus, offered to the Eternal Father for our salvation, we take a moment to consider the revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich on the ungratefulness of Catholics who spurn the salvation He offers them at such a great and painful price, for this was the source of much of His agony. Emmerich is eloquent here.
Several times I heard Him exclaim: ‘O my Father, can I possibly suffer for so ungrateful a race? O my Father, if this chalice may not pass from me, but I must drink it, Thy will be done!’
She then relates the frightful visions He endured in that last night of agony in the Garden of Gethsemane.
These diabolical figures urged on, dragged, and tore to pieces, before the very eyes of Jesus, countless numbers of those men for whose redemption He was entering upon the painful way of the Cross. …
These apparitions were all those persons who in divers ways insult and outrage Jesus, really and truly present in the Holy Sacrament.
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; by the worship of worldly idols; by spiritual darkness and false knowledge; or, finally, by error, incredulity, fanaticism, hatred, and open persecution. Among these men I saw many who were blind, paralysed, deaf, and dumb, and even children … who were led astray by following parents and teachers filled with the love of the world and forgetfulness of God, who were fed on earthly luxuries, drunk with false wisdom, and loathing all that pertained to religion.
.Entire neglect reigned everywhere, all things were left to moulder away in dust and filth, and the worship of God was, if not inwardly profaned, at least outwardly dishonoured. Nor did this arise from real poverty, but from indifference, sloth, preoccupation of mind about vain earthly concerns, and often also from egotism and spiritual death; for I saw neglect of this kind in churches the pastors and congregations of which were rich, or at east tolerably well off. I saw many others in which worldly, tasteless, unsuitable ornaments had replaced the magnificent adornments of a more pious age.
I saw the weak scandalised, 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 of all ages, careless or sacrilegious priests, crowds of tepid and unworthy communicants, wicked soldiers profaning the sacred 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 and promises, a number of souls for whom He had shed His blood.
I beheld whole nations thus snatched out of His bosom, and deprived of any participation in the treasure of graces left to the Church. Finally, I saw all who were separated from the Church plunged into the depths of infidelity, superstition, heresy, and false worldly philosophy; and they gave vent to their fierce rage by joining together in large bodies to attack the Church, being urged on by the serpent which was disporting itself in the midst of them. Alas! it was as though Jesus himself had been torn in a thousand pieces!
For so many, many years now, Our Lady’s request for penance, for reparation has been ignored by most Catholics and the Church has been more or less self-destructing. Now, the Catholic “metoo” movement hopes to “hold people accountable” and clean up the filth, but until Our Lord is offered the reparation He requires, no earthly means will end this vile corruption. The First Saturdays of Reparation are a necessary step towards restoring the sanctity of the Church. Please, plan now for your First Saturday of August Mass and Communion for Reparation on August 4th.
Please help spread this message. Thank you for reading, I pray for you all, always.
