Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
There is presently a tyrannical choke hold on humanity at the hands of a dark, oppressive power. In the very least, this is believed by many to be an opportunistic and diabolically influenced attempt to seize and manipulate a global pandemic and unprecedented civil unrest for the purpose of squeezing the spiritual and economic air out of the lungs of the Church and society in whole.
Conspiracism and scepticism and scoffing aside, as our religious and constitutional freedoms are concerned, this hypothesis makes reasonably good sense. Why?
Thy Kingdom Come
The Enemy and enemies of the Way, the Truth and the Life know full well that the unlocking of civilization, particularly, the restoration of our freedom to publicly worship – gathering in great numbers to pray and participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass – could contribute much to a renewed Culture of Life, the universal preservation of our inalienable rights and our sovereign blessings of liberty. Such liberty could significantly mitigate the misery inflicted on humanity at the hands of Satan and the Antichrist and usher the coming of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. In short, this is a reference to the fulfillment of the Our Father and the restoration of all things in Christ.
“The Kingdom on earth must come…My Divine Will is bound and committed to the words of the ‘Our Father’…Whatever it promises is more than certain to come to pass.” (Jesus to Servant of God, Luisa Piccareta)
Capitalism vs Socialism
As politics and democracy are concerned, though it may matter little as history unfolds, we cannot passively bury our indifferent heads in the sand and simply roll over without a spiritual fight and the proper formation of our conscience.
As Christians, we must not align ourselves with any party or person or action that threatens or violates the Sanctity of Life and our God-given inalienable rights. This requires an informed rejection of unapologetic pro-abortion politicians and vaccines cultured on a fetal cell line (cells harvested from tissue taken during abortions). In neglecting to do so, we, the People, the Mystical Body of Christ, may become mere collateral damage and a means to a much darker and oppressive end and the certain advance of Communism in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
Vote for Life
As long as freedom permits, we must intentionally bear witness of our faith at the polls as children of God and bearers of His light. It is eternally better to live and die for the Kingdom of God and the Culture of Life as our brother’s keeper than to be dangled by the father of lies as his puppets of apostasy, chaos, anarchy, lawlessness and the Culture of Death.
“As followers of Christ, we are called to stand up for life against the politically correct or fashionable of today. We must fight against a legislative agenda that supports and even celebrates destroying life in the womb. Keep in mind, the laws we create define how we see our humanity. We must ask ourselves: What are we saying when we go into a womb and snuff out an innocent, powerless, voiceless life?” ( Sr. Deirdre “Dede” Byrne, POSC)
Our Source and Summit
Consider that the Antichrist, as a means to establish his reign, intends to suppress, abolish and ultimately eliminate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because from it we receive Jesus, truly and really present in the Eucharistic Mystery, the Source and Summit of the Christian Life – the most powerful weapon on earth – against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)
There is nothing in the world more essential than the Blessed Sacrament of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. But who cares?
Lord Help Us in Our Unbelief
According to the February, 2019 Pew Research Center poll, 69 percent (nearly seven-in-ten) Catholics deny Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist. This makes it absolutely incumbent upon a remnant of 30 percent of 1.2 billion faithful Roman Catholics in the world to:
- Attend Mass when and where possible.
- Be with our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration when and where possible.
- Daily unite yourself with our Lord in Spiritual Communion.
- Be a witness and living testimony of His Real Presence.
- At all times, reverentially proclaim and defend Jesus in the Holy Eucharist as Satan and his minions are irreverently intent on desecrating, profaning, and eliminating our Eucharistic Lord from the face of the earth.
- Love God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind.
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
- Consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary.
- Keep your spiritual house in order and make frequent Sacramental Confession.
- FAST for the conversion of hardened hearts and for those most in need of God’s mercy.
- Pray the Holy Rosary, especially for priests, and do all these things for Jesus through Mary, the Mother of the Eucharist, to usher in the Triumph of Her immaculate Heart and the Reign of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus in the New Era of Peace as prophesied in Fatima.
The Greatest Historical Confrontation
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is trial which the whole Church…must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but, in a sense, a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations.” (Cardinal Karol Wojtyla – St. John Paul II – 1976 speech to the American Bishops)
The Church’s Ultimate Trial
Before Christ’s Second Coming, the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth [my emphasis]. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of His Messiah come in the flesh. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #675)
Mary Ark of Salvation
Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth (Psalm 128:8). Our refuge is in the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
“Closely linked to Jesus is His Mother, Mary. Their Hearts are one. But Jesus is God and she is not. Thus, when I speak of being in the Heart of Mary as though it is an Ark and ‘refuge’ for our times, it is the same as being in the Heart of Christ for she is completely his.” – Mark Mallett, Drawing Near to Jesus
A great miracle – a mystical Illumination of Conscience – is cresting on the horizon of humanity. Like a global spiritual tsunami, it is long prophesied that God’s light, love, power, justice and mercy will flood and rush through the soul of every man, woman, and child on earth to purify the hearts of His children.
“My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way which will lead you to God.” (Our Blessed Mother to Lucia, June 13, 1917, Fatima)
Among the messages of our Blessed Mother to Gladys Quiroga de Motta, granted the imprimatur and declared to be of supernatural origin and worthy of belief by Bishop Hector Cardelli, we hear: “My daughter, in this time, I am the Ark for all our brethren! I am the Ark of peace, the Ark of Salvation, the Ark where my children must enter, if they wish to live in the Kingdom of God.” (Our Blessed Mother to Gladys Quiroga de Motta of San Nicolas, Argentina, February 6, 1987)
What to Do
Be not afraid and pray, pray, pray, as never before with the wisdom of Solomon: Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong. (1 Kings 3:9)
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:1)
Remember and cling to the hope that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
St. Philomena, new light of the church militant, pray for us.
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
