Half Way To Suicide
From the Pope of Fatima, our beloved Pastor Angelicus, Venerable Pius XII:
Suppose, dear friend, that Communism was only the most visible of the instruments of subversion to be used against the Church and the traditions of Divine Revelation … I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God … In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them, like Mary Magdalene weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, “where have they taken Him?”
Pius XII, from the book Pius XII Devant L’Histoire
The quotation is, read in 2014, chilling.
The “suicide of altering the faith” (“suicide” i shere a rhetorical expression, as you all know, then the Church is indefectible) is in full swing, and it takes exactly the path feared by the great Pope.
The Faith is altered – not in her official expression, but in what is taught and implied and suggested and interviewed and off-the-cuffed day in and day out – in the insisted proposition of a Christ who does not judge, does not punish, does not demand loyalty, and does not call for evangelisation.
The liturgy is altered in the banalisation and de-sacralisation brought about by the Novus Ordo, and made much worse by the liturgical abuses which now even Popes commit repeatedly, unashamedly, under the sun.
The theology is altered in that as it is told that it will not change, the very Pope considers the call for communion for adulterers the product of “profound and serene theology”. The “subversion to be used against the Church and the traditions of Divine Revelation” is now at work from the very top.
The soul is altered in that Catholics are asked to de-Catholicise themselves, in an orgy of accommodation to every other people, culture, religion, immorality, even sexual perversion. They are asked to accommodate themselves to the sinner, lest his life becomes uncomfortable in his sins.
The civilised world (how beautifully politically incorrect, this one) is now rapidly denying its God. Churches are disappearing, as entire Countries are populated by people who have lost the very concept of sin, or scandal, and dare to call themselves Christians nevertheless. The legislation has been sliding towards heathenism now 40 years, but the slide has now become an avalanche as sexual perversion is falling upon the West, with a virulence that threatens the most basic freedoms of its inhabitants; inhabitants who in turn have now become too stupid, fat (actually: obese), and lazy to understand the value of freedom of opinion.
As the Pope himself considers it fitting to hide the Saviour from the very people he is called to evangelise (and no, do not believe to anyone telling you that uh, ah, oh, it must have been a coincidence, surely?), we are not very far away from a Pope declaring to the press that every religion is equal, and Christianity must accept to be on par with every other, and equally legitimate, way to express our love for God yadda yadda…
I doubt Francis will ever be as blasphemous as that, but if he can appoint a sufficient number of Cardinal his successor may well do it. There is, for example, probably almost nothing that a Maradiaga would not be able to say or do once he has become Pope.
Read the Pastor Angelicus’ words again. They are truly prophetic.
Let us pray that this punishment may end soon.
We wanted the chocolate without thinking of the consequences. Now God is force-feeding us with so much of it we are becoming obese, and severely diabetic. A fitting punishment for our sins of presumption, for believing we are too good for Catholicism, and that the Church must be made new to bend it to our love for chocolate.
But it’s not chocolate. It merely has the same colour.
