Sow Vatican II, reap Francis.

We are being deservedly punished. We are being shown on our flesh the folly of our ways, because we were so blind and stupid we did not get that, to make one example for all, the Assisi gatherings – particularly the first – are blasphemy and abomination.

We collectively pay the price of our collective folly. We collectively deserve every mouthful of excrement this unspeakably unworthy Pope will thrust down our throats; feeling, no doubt, extremely humble as he does so, and reaping the lavish praise of all the wrong people, from perverted singers to abortionist organisations, and from liberal journalists to the holocaust-promoting President of the United States, who has just joined the long list of his fans.

Scary … seen on the web: “The crisis is over; we have lost…”

“The crisis is over; we have lost. This is no longer just a prediction, it is a simple observation: Rome has been desecrated. We are in the age of darkness. Triumphalist reactions are in vain. The modern world and the Church deserve the punishment that God is raining down on us.” – John Senior

Submit to the liberal establishment or be “Deened”.

It is not too difficult to see what will happen if a successful Catholic celebrity or businessman is sued for discrimination by a homosexual person and, in a deposition, asked if he or she has ever harbored the view that homosexuality is intrinsically disordered?  Or what if such a Catholic is asked if he or she thinks that homosexual sexual activity is intrinsically immoral, gravely sinful, and if knowingly and willingly engaged in lands one in hell?  Or what if such a Catholic is asked if he or she has ever been against “marriage equality,” and entertained the view that homosexual “marriage” is against the common good?

Answer “Yes” to any of those questions and, in the mind of the secular liberal, you are guilty of invidious discrimination, of malice.  It is an irredeemable position.  Convert or suffer punishment.  Convert or you will be Deened.

Three sources from which sin springs.

susanna

The first reading from today’s Mass is an extraordinary moral tale from the  Book of Daniel. It is the story of Susanna. The full passage (which is quite lengthy) can be found here: Daniel 13:1-62. Interestingly it is missing from Protestant Bibles which use a truncated version of the Book of Daniel. As such it is a lesser known passage, even among Catholics since it is only read on a weekday Mass once a year.

It features the story of a beautiful young woman, Susanna, married to a man named Joakim. One day as she is bathing in a private garden two older men who have hidden themselves there out of lust try to seduce Susanna who rebuffs their brazen overture. They threaten to falsely accuse her of having committed adultery with a young man in garden if she does not give way to their desires. She still refuses and they follow through on their threatened lie. They further demand that she should be stoned. Things look bleak for Susanna until Daniel comes to the rescue and, through crafty interrogation, exposes their lie for what it is. The story is a small masterpiece. If you have never read it,  you should. In the course of its engaging tale it gives us a kind of anatomy lesson of sin. It is good to consider the teachings here.

In a remarkable description the story describes a threefold source from which their sins spring forth. The text says: They suppressed their consciences; they would not allow their eyes to look to heaven, and did not keep in mind just judgments. (Daniel 13:9). I’d like to take a look at each of these three sources from which sin springs.

Another thing Harold “Doomsday” Camping missed: Old Testament punishment prescribed for false prophets was harsh.

Deuteronomy 18:20-22

But the prophet, who being corrupted with pride, shall speak in my name things that I did not command him to say, or in the name of strange gods, shall be slain.

And if in silent thought thou answer: How shall I know the word that the Lord hath not spoken?

Thou shalt have this sign: Whatsoever that same prophet foretelleth in the name of the Lord, and it cometh not to pass: that thing the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath forged it by the pride of his mind: and therefore thou shalt not fear (heed) him.

Editor’s note: I wonder why all these learned, Bible believing scripture “scholars” … and their disciples … who deem themselves qualified even to predict the mysterious “end of days” … seem to be totally oblivious to the above scripture passage?

I M P O R T A N T: The entirety of the old law was fulfilled and set aside by Jesus Christ, in favor of the all new and better covenant that he gave to us, in his own blood … so there is now no extant law (of God or of man) that currently prescribes death for false prophets.

The prudential decision to totally disregard such false prophets however, is still a sound one.

Many of us had a lot of fun following the exploits of Harold Camping this past weekend … but there should now be absolutely no doubt that Camping is a victim of “the pride of his mind” … and people of faith should rightly be totally unconcerned with anything he might have to say.

Why 40?

It is the number Forty that the Church now brings before us: – a number, as Saint Jerome observes, which denotes punishment and affliction [In Ezechiel, cap. xxix].

Let us remember the forty days and forty nights of the Deluge (Gen. vii. 12), sent by God in his anger, when he repented that he had made man, and destroyed the whole human race, with the exception of one family. Let us consider how the Hebrew people, in punishment for their ingratitude, wandered forty years in the desert, before they were permitted to enter the Promised Land [Num. xiv. 33]. Let us listen to our God commanding the Prophet Ezechiel to lie forty days on his right side, as a figure of the siege, which was to bring destruction on Jerusalem [Ezech. iv. 6].

We are the chastisement.

There is an expectation among many Christians today that a chastisement for a sinful world is long overdue and that there is an unmistakable event of obvious biblical comeuppance “Sodom and Gomorrah” style in our near future.  Our deserving of such a correction—and that is what God’s chastisement is all about, correction—is not even up for debate.  The only real question is when.  When will God act?

May I suggest that we are making bricks in exile?  What I mean to say, we are in the middle of a great chastisement but we are so busy making bricks that we fail to see the big picture.
