We live in a world where most people, living in a fog of sentimentality and emotionalism and illogic that are the very logical consequences of the naturalism spawned by the Protestant Revolution against the Social Reign of Christ the King and the subsequent rise and institutionalization of Judeo-Masonry, do not "connect the dots" very well.
So few people understand Who God is as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church. A failure to know God as He has revealed Himself to us through the Church that He created upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, leads men to project onto Him their own false religious and philosophical and emotional concepts. It is a short step from there to embracing what God hates, sin, and living wantonly in the belief that a "loving" God wants us to be happy, that what is sinful for one person may not be sinful for another.
Yes, all of the "disconnects" in the world today flow logically from a failure to understand Who God is as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church.
Large numbers, if not a preponderance, of Catholics today, including more than a few who are not attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, do not realize or understand that each sin has consequences and that each sin must be punished, whether here on this earth or in Purgatory if one has cooperated with the the graces won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood that are sent into human hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, to persevere the moment of his death.
Those who lack of true knowledge of God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church will be blithely--or selectively--dismissive of the gravity of what are Mortal Sins in the objective order of things.
Heresy? What's the big deal. It's all just a matter of "opinion," right? Why bother to hurt someone's feelings over a "small" issue?
Blasphemies and sacrileges committed against the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his band of conciliar "bishops" and priests/presbyters and religious? Well, we just have to get along with others and to respect their false religious beliefs and practices. right?
This proliferation of error is so pronounced and so widespread in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism that the average Catholic, noting, of course, exceptions here and there, has become so very accustomed to apostasy that he is incapable of recognizing that is a Mortal Sin, objectively speaking, for a Catholic to enter into a place of false worship and then to praise that place of diabolical rites as "sacred" and to praise the "values" held by the adherents of that false religion.
Very few Catholics have expressed any sense of outrage for the honor and majesty and glory of God in the wake of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's calling a mosque in Jordan as a "jewel" that stands out on "the face of the earth" and in the wake of his, Ratzinger/Benedict's, taking off his shoes to enter the mosque of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem in 2009 and calling this place that is hideous in the sight of God as "sacred." These Catholics have come to accept such acts of apostasy and sacrilege as "natural" and "normal," if not actual "obligations" required of Christian charity so as to demonstrate to all men of "good will" that a "loving God" does not make distinctions between people who have different beliefs about Him. I know of only a handful of Catholics who expressed publicly any outrage at all for the honor and majesty and glory of God after Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI personally esteemed the symbols of five false religions at the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, April 17, 2008, or when he has given joint "blessings" with the ministers of non-Catholic religious sects, such as occurred last year during his visit to the United Kingdom.
The man who believes himself to be, albeit falsely, the Vicar of Christ, on earth, has long been tolerant of theological and philosophical errors. This has been one of the hallmarks of his entire intellectual life, indicating clearly that he truly does not believe in God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through the true Church that He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope (see Sixty Years of Priestly Apostasy). Most Catholics have a "disconnect" about this. They simply cannot see that Ratzinger/Benedict, far from being a "restorer of Tradition," is a blasphemer who has offended God greatly. And it is direct, public and very bold offenses against the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity that make the proliferation of all others sins all the more terrible in world suffering from the effects of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that has been ratified by the conciliar "pontiffs" and the entire ethos of conciliarism.
It is in this world of disconnects that people, including many Catholics, can hail the passage of a bill permit "marriage" between persons of the same gender while refusing to see the chastisements that God is sending to punish such reckless acts of defiance against His laws and thus of the common temporal good. It is no accident that the State of New York, the chemical and surgical baby-killing capital of the world, is now being plagued (emphasis on the word plagued) by an outbreak of "giant hogweed," a plant whose sap causes blisters and blindness (see Blinding Plant, Last Thing New Yorkers Will Ever See?).
The Prophet Jeremias was inspired by God the Holy Ghost to write the following about the spiritual blindness of the people he was sent to exhort unto repentance for their sins:
 Hear, O foolish people, and without understanding: who have eyes, and see not: and ears, and hear not.  Will not you then fear me, saith the Lord: and will you not repent at
my presence? I have set the sand a bound for the sea, an everlasting
ordinance, which it shall not pass over: and the waves thereof shall
toss themselves, and shall not prevail: they shall swell, and shall not
pass over it.  But the heart of this people is become hard of belief and provoking, they are revolted and gone away.  And they have not said in their heart: let us fear the Lord our God,
who giveth us the early and the latter rain in due season: who
preserveth for us the fullness of the yearly harvest.  Your iniquities have turned these things away, and your sins have withholden good things from you. (Jeremias 5: 21-25.)
We live in a world where the Congress of the United States of America is phasing out the purchase of certain ordinary incandescent light bulbs as the terms of a bill, the Energy Independence and Security, Act, signed into law on December 19, 2007, by Y2K's Lesser Evil, George Walker Bush, while most Americans, chortling down their beer and chowing door on all manner munchies almost all of the time, speak of "liberty" and have the joy of living in a "free" nation.
It is in this "free" nation that efforts are being made to restrict the hanging of laundry on clothes' lines outdoors because of a concern for visual pollution and "greenhouse" gasses. This is madness. Madness. We are "free" to blaspheme God and to dress indecently and to mutilate our bodies with tatoos (a hefty woman with tattoos was purchasing a magazine entitled Tattoo when I was paying for gasoline at a Speedway convenience store in Indianapolis, Indiana, recently!). We are not "free" to hang our clothes outside and to use the kind of light bulb that we desire. And yet people speak of "freedom." This is madness, utter and complete madness.
Yet, of course, there can be no freedom when men do not realize that it is only by the merits won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross, by the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus, that men can be truly free, that they live under governmental arrangements that are truly limited as civil leaders seek the common temporal good in light of the pursuit of man's Last End, the possession of the glory of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven (see Independent From One Set of Masons To Be Enslaved By Yet Others).
Most men do not see this, continuing to provoke God as they revolt against Him so wantonly.
The world of "disconnects" in which we live is such that large numbers human beings can be glued to the television coverage of a sensational murder trial of an unwed mother accused of killing her two-year old daughter before living the "wonderful life" immediately thereafter, expressing shock and horror at her acquittal on Tuesday, July 5, 2011, without a for moment understanding that men and women get away with child-killing, both by chemical and surgical means, under the cover of the civil law every day in this "free" country and around the world. They do not "connect the dots" to come to the realization that the slaughter of so many innocent children must be punished by God, that it is being punished by God right before our very eyes. Why be so upset about the Casey Anthony case? Women walk into and out of pharmacies to get chemical abortifacient potions that kill their children dead every day. Women walk into and out of abortuaries to have their children killed by surgical means? There is something of a disconnect here, of course.
One of the ways in which we are being chastised is in the systematic depopulation of the so-called "civilized world's" indigenous population as immigrants, many of them Mohammedan, and other racial and ethnic groups stand poised to become a majority of the population in most of these countries by the middle of this century, if, that is, God does not intervene directly before that time to put an end to the madness (see Census shows whites lose US Majority Among Babies). It might very well be the case that God will permit such a scenario to unfold more and more precisely to punish us the more for our infidelities.
The late Father Paul Marx, O.S.B., the founder of Human Life International and the Population Research Institute, gave lectures throughout the course of the 1990s in which he, a trained sociologist, said that the demographic statistics were incontestable: Mohammedans will make up a majority of the population in many European countries, including Germany, by the middle of the Twenty-first Century. He repeated this in an interview he gave to Population Research Institute President Steven W. Mosher shortly before his death on March 20, 2010:
Steven Mosher: “Fr. Marx, could you tell us why you founded Population Research Institute back in 1989?”
Fr. Marx: “I founded PRI because I saw the need for
an organization to combat the myth of overpopulation. I wanted to
publicize the dramatic fall in birth rates, especially in the developed
countries. As you well know, about half the countries in the world,
including all the developed countries in the world, now have a
non-reproductive birthrate. Entire nations are dying out.”
Steven Mosher: “Father, you’ve traveled to 92 countries around the globe. Take us on a quick tour de force.”
Fr. Marx: “The US Census Bureau reports show that
the roughly 2 children per family of our own country is the highest for
developed nations. Of course, even this is below replacement. We need
2.l children per family in the industrialized nations to replace
ourselves. Our nation is aging fast, with more than 30 million people 65
years or older, and the social security system will soon be under
strain, Of course, our problems are mitigated by relatively high levels
of immigration, which bring roughly a million people, mostly young and
Hispanic, across our borders each year.
“Most of the developed countries are far worse off than we are. Take
Europe, for example. There the average family has only 1.4 children.
Russia’s averaging only a little over one child per family and that,
combined with bad vodka and the hopelessness born of poverty, is
shrinking the Russian population by nearly one million people each year.
Spain and Italy, too, are averaging only a little over one child per
family, and have shrinking populations. The only reproductive country in
Europe is tiny Moslem Albania with 2.5 children, and the International
Planned Parenthood Federation is there working overtime to bring down
the birthrate! Europe is holding off complete demographic collapse by
permitting immigration from North Africa and the Middle East. Without
the millions of Moslems streaming into Europe, the situation would be
bleak indeed, but these immigrants create cultural problems of their
“Amazingly, Australia and New Zealand, with their sparse populations and wide open spaces, are not replacing themselves!
“Japan is currently averaging only 1.38 children per family. Despite a
shortage of skilled workers and a stagnant economy, Japan still remains
unfriendly to immigrants, accepting very few.”1
Steven Mosher: “What about the developing world?”
Fr. Marx: “China — which you know better than I —
has a non-reproductive birth-rate because of the one-child policy. Baby
girls are slaughtered in enormous numbers — we cannot know the exact
number. Traditionally, China had a serious imbalance in the sexes
because of female infanticide. This problem is back with a vengeance.
“In India, whose population will in the near future surpass that of
China, birthrates are falling fast because of contraception,
abortifacients, sterilization, and surgical abortion. Here, too, there
is a developing imbalance of the sexes as couples selectively abort
unborn baby girls. Both China and India will have serious problems in
the future because of this.
“In South America, too, birthrates are falling quickly to replacement
levels or below. Contraception, abortifacients, sterilization, and
abortion are spreading, pushed by our government. Peru’s sterilization
campaign, which you and your staff have done such good work exposing, is
“Africa, the second largest continent on earth, is afflicted with a
massive AIDS epidemic. This creates a multitude of problems, not least
parents dying and leaving their small children orphans. The children
often are little cared for, given the lack of resources.”
Steven Mosher: “What do you see as the consequences of this downturn in births?”
Fr. Marx: “Who will take care of the old? Given such
low birthrates, who will take care of the increasing numbers of
elderly? Government programs will be hard pressed to take care of the
old in the future, both in the US and in all developed countries — to
say nothing of the developing world.
“Who will serve the Church as priests and religious? The big reason
for the lack of religious vocations throughout the Western world, not
least in the US, is the low birthrate. Studies show that priests and
religious come from larger families, from more generous parents.
Undoubtedly, the vocations problem in the Western world is in large part
clue to low birth-rates, itself a reflection of declining faith and
increasing selfishness.” (An Interview with Fr. Paul Marx; for another article from the "mainstream media" discussing the demographic trends that will make it easier for statists of the false opposite of the naturalist "left" to get elected, please see The Changing Face of America's Youth.)
Father Marx, who was a friend of mine and with whom I was most privileged to appear as a speaker on several occasions in the 1990s, never "connected the dots" about conciliarism. Make no mistake about it, however: he was hated by many conciliar "bishops" and priests/presbyters for daring to speak out against contraception publicly, even more hated by them as a result of his criticizing the conciliar "hierarchy" for their refusal to do so. One such "archbishop," Harry Flynn of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, had a presbyter factotum slander Father Marx as an "anti-Semite" in the Basilica of Saint Paul in Saint Paul, Minnesota, at the end of a Novus Ordo service in April of 1997 at the start of Human Life International's annual conference. Why? Because Father Marx's autobiography mentioned that monied adherents of the Talmud were very responsible for promoting chemical and surgical baby-killing in this country and around the world. That is the truth, just as it is the truth today that monied adherents of the Talmud have effectively silenced Congressional Republicans about "gay marriage" (see Hill GOP goes silent on gay marriage). These Congressional Republicans are just too busy, you understand, concentrating on "economic concerns," starting with stuffing their own campaign coffers with oodles of ready cash from these merchants of physical and eternal death, to consider the "social issues" of any real importance.
Yet it is, of course, that it is those "social issues," before us as they are because of Protestantism's diabolically inspired and directed revolution against the Divine Plan that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ instituted to effect man's return to Him through the Catholic Church, that doom this nation to more and more chaos as we suffer from greater and greater chastisements. And what do the conciliar revolutionaries do? They call for "dialogue," for "understanding," for "respect," for "tolerance" of all peoples in a "civilization of love."
Oh, you thought that the "civilization of love" slogan went out the door with Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. Think again. Confront reality:
Precisely so as “to place the modern world in contact
with the life-giving and perennial energies of the Gospel” (John XXIII,
Apostolic Constitution Humanae Salutis, 3), the Second Vatican Council was convened. There the Church, on
the basis of a renewed awareness of the Catholic tradition, took
seriously and discerned, transformed and overcame the fundamental
critiques that gave rise to the modern world, the Reformation and the
Enlightenment. In this way the Church herself accepted and refashioned
the best of the requirements of modernity by transcending them on the
one hand, and on the other by avoiding their errors and dead ends. The
Council laid the foundation for an authentic Catholic renewal and for a
new civilization – “the civilization of love” – as an evangelical
service to man and society.
Dear friends, the Church considers that her
most important mission in today’s culture is to keep alive the search
for truth, and consequently for God; to bring people to look beyond
penultimate realities and to seek those that are ultimate. I
invite you to deepen your knowledge of God as he has revealed himself in
Jesus Christ for our complete fulfilment. Produce beautiful things, but
above all make your lives places of beauty. May Our Lady of Belém
intercede for you, she who has been venerated down through the centuries
by navigators, and is venerated today by the navigators of Goodness,
Truth and Beauty. (Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Meeting with the world of culture in the Cultural Center of Belém, Portugal, May 12, 2010.)
No Catholicism, no true civilization of love. It is that simple as there can be no true love among men when they do not love God after getting to know Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church and then attempt to obey Him by begging His Most Blessed Mother to send us the graces to glorify Him and to make reparation for their sins as His consecrated slaves through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. That men do not "get this" is, of course, the biggest "disconnect" of all.
Father Frederick Faber edited a book about The Life of Saint Rose of Lima that contained a passage quite relevant to these considerations:
True love being always accompanied by zeal, it follows that we cannot love perfectly the Son of God, who takes so great an interest in the salvation of those souls whom He has redeemed with His precious blood, without being also zealous for the eternal welfare of sinners for whom He suffered death. As this zeal was the characteristic of S. Dominic, and is it still inflames the hearts of those among her children whom the Church destines to gain souls, we need not be surprised that S. Rose, his beloved daughter, should have received the spirit of zeal of this great patriarch with the habit of his order, as she showed during her whole life an indefatigable zeal for the conversion of sinners, and never failed one single day to ask God for them by her prayers, and generally also by her blood, the grace to be restored to His friendship.
Whenever she cast her eyes on the high mountains of South America, she wept for the eternal loss of the barbarous people who dwell amongst them. Her zeal being as boundless as her charity, she deplored also the damnation of the almost innumerable multitude of pagans in the New World, who have no knowledge of God nor of the adorable mysteries of religion; she desired to be torn in pieces and placed at the gate of hell, as a net to hinder men form precipitating themselves into it, as they do every day.
She exhorted religious persons, whenever she met them, in words of fire, to go and preach the Gospel to the idolatrous Indians, warning them especially to shun the studied figures of rhetoric, which corrupt the purity of the word of god; and not be attached to the useless subtleties of the schools, nor to the questions which are therein agitated, unless they may be useful in converting infidels. She sometimes said, in transport of zeal, that if Almighty God had made her of a different sex, she would have applied herself to study, in order to labour, with all her power, for the conversion of souls; and that when her studies were finished, she would have penetrated into the most distant provinces and most barbarous nations of America, to enlighten these savages with the torch of faith, or to finish her life by a glorious martyrdom. Seeing herself incapacitated by her sex from executing this charitable design, as she could not make these long journeys, she had resolved to adopt a child, and bring him up to study and prayer, by the help of the alms given her, and the money she gained by her work, that she might send him to preach to infidels when he was capable of it.
One of her confessors being undecided about accompanying some good religious men in a mission to the Indians, for which they were preparing, she made over to him half the merit she might have gained by the good works which she had performed by the grace of God, in order to animate him to this enterprise, in which the salvation of a great number of souls was in question. If she had great zeal for these poor Indians, what shall we saw of that which she manifested for the salvation of Christians, who are, a S. Paul says, of the household of the faith, when she saw them in danger of losing heaven by their crimes and excesses? She took every day severe discipline for their conversion'; and as she could not keep to herself the zeal which inflamed her, she made it known by these words, which she sometimes uttered: "Ah, if it were permitted to me to exercise the function of preacher, I would go by day and by night, barefoot, into the public places, covered with a hair shirt, and bearing a large cross on my shoulders, to exhort sinners to do penance, and to represent to them the fearful severity of the judgments of God." For this reason she modestly advised those who were engaged in the apostolical ministry, to make these subjects the ordinary matter of their discourses, to renounce the ornaments of worldly rhetoric, and to abstain from studied declamations, which are more suited to the theatre than to the pulpit, because preachers are established by Almighty God to be fishers of men, that is, to withdraw them from sin and hell by their fervent exhortations.
As she was animated with the spirit of her father, S. Dominic, she would have considered herself to have degenerated from the glorious quality of his daughter, if she had not imitated his ardent charity for others; therefore all her aim was to draw men to God, to bring them from vice, and to inspire them with a love for virtue. She never spoke with any one without leading the conversation to the necessity of knowing, loving, and serving God, and to the obligation contracted by every Christian of leading a holy life, of renouncing the maxims and vanities of the world, and of clothing themselves with Jesus Christ, by an imitation of those virtues which He has practiced to give us an example. She was so thoroughly persuaded of the truths she uttered, and so deeply touched by them, that she scarcely spoke to any person without gaining him to God, and inducing him to change his life. (Father Frederick William Faber, editor, The Life of Saint Rose of Lima, published originally in 1855 and republished by Kessinger's Publishing's Legacy Reprints, pp. 161-166.)
None of this is being done by the lords of conciliarism, and this is why the lords of Modernity have such tremendous power today. A liturgy without graces and doctrines that offend God and harm souls must lead to an abandonment of the missionary work of the Catholic Church and to the embrace of the world by baptized Catholics to such an extent that men are doomed to live their entire lives in a prison of one "disconnect" after another, enslaved to this or that false high priest or priestess in the world and in the conciliar church. We must, despite our own sins and failings for which we have need of making reparation as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, continue the work of the Catholic Church by leading all men to her maternal bosom, especially as we distribute truly blessed Green Scapulars to them.
It is only by means of the merciful designs of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus that any of us who have been so foolish as to think that the counterfeit church of conciliarism was the Catholic Church as we "stayed and fought" errors and blasphemies and apostasies and sacrileges at the "local" level that had--and continue to have, at least for the most part--approval from the conciliar Vatican have been able to cooperate with the graces sent to us by Our Lady to cleave to true bishops and true priests who make no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent legitimacy of its false shepherds.
Catholics do not embrace error. They flee from it. (See Father Frederick Faber's meditation for the Sixth Dolor of Our Lady contained in
Our Mother of Sorrows.) They make reparation for it as they make reparation for their our sins as the consecrated slaves of Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, praying as many Rosaries each day as their states-in-life permit.
We must also remember Our Lady's words to Juan Diego on Tepeyac Hill near Mexico City nearly four hundred eighty years ago now this very year:
Know for certain that I am the perfect and perpetual Virgin Mary, Mother of the True God. . . . Here I will show and offer my love, my compassion, my help and my protection to the people. I am your merciful Mother, the Mother of all those who love me, of those who cry to me, of those who have confidence in me. Here I will hear their weeping and their sorrows and will remedy and alleviate their suffering, necessities and misfortunes. . . . Listen and let it penetrate into your heart. . . . Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. So not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else that you need?
No, dear Blessed Mother. We have you. There is nothing else we need as you pray for us to your Divine Son now, and at the hour our deaths. There is nothing else we need other than for you to pray for us to remain faithful to your Divine Son without making any concessions or compromises at all to the figures of Antichrist in the counterfeit church of conciliarism or in the realm of politics and civil government. Help us to plant a few seeds for the Triumph of your Immaculate Heart as the fruit of the fulfillment of your Fatima Message as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
