What a year it has been.
I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with the events in Rome the past few days, and tomorrow will apparently bring added heresy with the publication of another Apostolic Exhortation. The pace of events, just when you think we are already at flank speed, continues to accelerate.
Let’s reflect back to last Advent, as the false mercy had just descended upon us. I wrote a post warning about the heresy. Some of it was quite prophetic, I’m sorry to say:
“The mercy offered is done so seemingly without any need for contrition. No worries, you are just fine remaining in your sin, stay right where you are, the Church will come out to the “margins” and meet you there. Then, we will accompany you back and feed you the Lamb of God, because you’ll be hungry from the journey.
That’s not mercy. That’s a diabolical inversion of Luke 15:21. It’s as if the father saw the prodigal son in the distance, copulating with a harlot, and killed the fatted calf anyway.
This is what happens when you have vast numbers of clergy, many with red hats (or white), who don’t actually believe in the Real Presence. If they did, there is no way we get to this point.”
Regarding the state of the souls of men who think this way:
“Not only do they not believe the harder truths, they are EMBARRASSED by all of it. So out of touch, you know. How in the world do you expect us to move about in polite society with all this talk of Body, Blood, Soul, Divinity, SIN, contrition, penance, mortification, firm purpose of amendment, CONVERSION? Are you out of your mind? Here, wrap all that nonsense up in this nice felt banner of Mercy, you’ll feel better.
Here’s the thing. At the end of the day, having the faith means believing ALL OF IT. Until your conscience is formed, molded, fired and cured around this concept, you are lost. Most of us have been on the other side at some point, so we understand how they think, and why they believe what they believe (or don’t). Our culture is so drenched in the errors of modernism, it all should be so obvious to anyone with a brain. But they can’t see what we see, because they refuse the graces being offered to them. They refuse to be converted, choosing narcissism instead.”
Regarding where this is going:
“Back to the question of sacrilegious Communion. With the world growing stranger by the day, I find myself distracted in prayer, with thoughts of tactical measures and wondering how it all ends. I mean, I know it all ends in total victory, which is great sustenance. But I’m talking about the actual “how”. If we wind up with the vast majority of Masses ending in sacrilege, not only with the communicants in mortal sin but also the priests themselves intentionally committing sacrilege, then I’m pretty sure that will be the Abomination of Desolation we’ve all been wondering about. And no faithful Catholic can be a part of that.”
That was five months before Amoris Laetitia came out. I had help from other bloggers, who are credited on the original post.
