In these astonishing times, never forget that we have the most wonderful weapon at our disposal. A weapon of whose power we are, most of the time, only dimly aware.
Pray the Rosary! Pray the Rosary! Pray the Rosary!
Don't delay anymore. These are no times for postponements.
Take your place on the barricades and use the wonderful weapon the Blessed Virgin has given us.
Don't postpone anymore. The house is burning. All hands must carry water now.
Don't postpone anymore. Start praying the rosary every day, today.
Yes, it means you.
If you read my several posts about Predestination and Reprobation you will see that God, Who is omnipotent and omniscient, has decreed from all eternity that certain people – the Reprobates – will willingly merit hell for themselves, whilst others – the Elect – will willingly cooperate with His grace in a way that merits them, normally after the necessary purification in Purgatory, heaven.
In a mysterious, but not incomprehensible way, the system works in both directions. God has decreed, and I willingly do what he has decreed I would be doing.
How does this apply to the dark times in which we are living? In my eyes, it applies to it in a very simple way: that when the clergy and the laymen betray God, He punishes not only the generation in question, but also sends them an awful lot of Reprobates, so that the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons. I am, obviously, talking of great numbers here; not of your aunt Dahlia who, I am sure, is quite all right.
The generation who willingly decided that abortion is not only fine, but a right to be protected will be punished – inter alia – from knowing, in hell, that their children rot in hell with them forever. The sin of the fathers are – collectively speaking – visited upon the sons. Those who treat “luv” (not a real love, of course; a perverted, monstrous caricature of it) as if it were God will pay a price for their blasphemy commensurate to the rank of the One they have offended.
More in general it is, in my eyes, very fair to say that even among the baptised Catholics not all generations have the same amount of Reprobates. How can anyone with some logic think that Satan will have the same harvest from the baptised Catholics born in, say, 1910, 1950 and 1990? If this were the case, it would make no difference – and it would make, in the end, utterly irrelevant – if a generation has good priests and strong faith, or not. No. In the average, is stands to reason that the one born in 1910 is much more likely to have a healthy fear of the Lord than the one born in 1940, and the one born in 1940 is more likely to be at least disgusted by sexual perversion, and possibly fully aware of how sodomy offends God, than the one born in 1970 by people who, even if they still had their children baptised, did not care a straw for anything else than their own, extremely convenient moral compass. Following the same logic, it is not surprising at all that many of the children born in 2010 are not baptised at all.
We live, very clearly, in a generation of Reprobates; now arrived at the adult stage of their existence and thinking and acting like perfect heathens, feeling – probably, more than the heathens of pre-Christian times did – perfectly fine with themselves in the process.
No generation of evil people was so sanctimoniously persuaded of their own saintliness than this one; very probably, not even the Sodomites themselves. This, if nothing else, gives you the scale of the horrible tragedy that is unraveling under our very eyes.
A reckless generation chose abortion and mass contraception. In time, God sent them what their abortion and contraception were calling for: an enormous mass of reprobates as children, who then paved the way for even worse evil, and even worse suffering in hell, for the generation after them. This vicious circle will go on until the Lord, in His Mercy and Justice, decides that the wicked have been punished enough and, from another point of view, enough wicked have been punished. At that point, sanity will be restored and the newly sent Elect will take care that things are put right.
No generation was, of course, exempt from sin. But I fail to detect in history another example of such a mass abandonment of a Christian Truth already revealed. What we are living is, compared to the French or the October Revolution, less cruent in blood shed, but so much vaster in scale. It is as if the Lord had decided that if the Christian West wants to nuke itself, it should be allowed to do so and enjoy the nuclear fallout to the end.
We have to live in the age of the nuclear self-destruction of the very soul of the Western world, and will have to go through the fallout as long as the Lord in His Mercy decides we should do do. But at some point, we will be called, and sorted among the many Reprobates or the, most certainly, much smaller number of the Elect.
Let us work every day, in the middle of this nuclear wasteland, so that, when our day comes, we are called among the second.
Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus addictis, voca me cum benedictis.
Pope Francis’ just released disgraceful encyclical has, among its extremely numerous vices (see an excerpt of them in my Francis Papers page above, just scroll to the bottom), the one of being strongly influenced by atheist thinking.
Worse (even) than this, Francis has already given more than a hint (actually, he has screamed from the rooftops, only not in encyclicals yet) that an atheist can be saved by following his conscience (see here and here).
The Bishop of Rome, unhappily reigning, wants you to believe and profess that atheism can be perfectly fine not only for salvation, but as a general way of thinking. Francis has no qualms whatsoever with people claiming to be “good without God”; he even asks them to send him “good thoughts”, or the like (alas, this time no link…).
This is today, in the Age of Sodomy.
But how was it before?
We only need to look back 65 years and we find a wonderful encyclical of the great Pope Pius XII, Anni Sacri. The encyclical is very pithy and can be read in its entirety in a short time, so I encourage you to do it. There are no great discussions about why the atheist is logically wrong (remember when Mr Smith bought a new watch?). The letter is entirely devoted to the necessity for the bishops to fight against the atheist mentality within the families and in the public sphere.
The Pastor Angelicus would not even dream of telling you that an atheist can be saved in his atheism, is he “follows his conscience”. This is the thinking of an atheist or a very confused deist. he says instead (emphases mine):
As you know, once religion is taken away there cannot be a well ordered, well regulated society. In this point lies the urgency to spur on priests under your guidance in order that, especially during the Holy Year, they spare no efforts so that souls entrusted to them, with their false prejudices and erroneous convictions cast aside, and hatreds and discords settled, may nourish themselves on the teachings of the Gospel and thus participate in Christian life so as to hasten the desired renewal of morals.
You can’t found a societal order on anything else than Christ. Those who think otherwise must change their mind. Unless they get to understand the truth, they will be spiritual starving individuals.
There are other very interesting points touched in the encyclical, that are – that cannot but be – completely opposite to Francis’ Castroite Weltanschauung. But this here seemed to me the most relevant: those who Francis considers good guys helping him to do what is really important (not Christ, no; redistribute income and have a world government that tries to prevent you from using the aircon) are to the Pope of Fatima a veritable poison of society, one that every bishop and priest must do his best to extirpate.
How the times have changed. What a sad joke the papacy has become.
