Just Stay In A State Of Sanctifying Grace
by Thomas A. Droleskey
There are no safe havens in this world that was born in a violent revolution against the Catholic Church and the Social Reign of Christ the King.
There are no hiding places at a time when the honor and majesty and glory of God are mocked by men who are accepted by almost everyone in the world as officials of the Catholic Church.
Sudden, violent death lurks around the corner.
Why should this not be so?
Most people in the "civilized" West are in a state open rebellion against Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church.
More people in the "civilized" West than not speak blasphemously as they pollute their immortal souls with the trash of modern "entertainment" and as they waste their days on one endless frivolous activity after another.
Most people in the "civilized" West today either believe in or practice the frustration of the conception of children, thereby declaring themselves to be in open rebellion against the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of marriage.
More people in the "civilized" West than not believe that the surgical assassination of children in their mothers' wombs should be permitted under cover of the civil law at least in some "limited" circumstances while substantially large numbers of others believe in the wanton execution of the preborn at any time for any reason.
Most people in the "civilized" West believe that it is to "give the gift of life" to permit themselves or their relatives to be dissected alive under the slogan of "vital organ donation" and the myth of "brain death."
Most people in the "civilized" West believe that it is the civil state, not the parents, who are the principal educators of children, thereby surrendering children to the intellectual and emotional manipulation of ideologies who are hellbent in "evangelizing" their false "gospel" of the brand of the naturalism that can be termed as the "left."
Most people in the "civilized" West believe that "one religion is as good as another" and many believe that allegedly "radical" Mohammedans are misrepresenting the tenets of an otherwise "peaceful" religion.
Although the ever "politically correct" administration of the currently reigning caesar, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, has termed yesterday's bomb blasts in the City of Boston, Massachusetts, that have killed three people thus far and wounded over one hundred thirty spectators who were at the finish line of the annual "Patriots' Day" running of the Boston Marathon, as an "act of terrorism," it appears as though great efforts are being undertaken to make sure that no one attempts to pin the blame is placed on Mohammedans for the two explosions in downtown Boston and one that took place at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum several miles away:
It was unclear Monday evening who might be
responsible for the blast. Although investigators confirmed that they
were speaking to a Saudi citizen, several law enforcement officials took
pains to note that no one was being held in custody.
While the authorities have not arrested the Saudi man, he has remained
at a hospital under close supervision by law enforcement authorities,
according to a senior law enforcement official. (At Least 100 Are Hurt as Explosions Hit Near Finish Line.)
Indeed, the some in mainslime (yes, you read that correctly) media are attempting to assert that the party or parties responsible for the deadly explosions were associated with "anti-government" groups:
Some officials noted that the blasts came at the start of a week that
has sometimes been seen as significant for radical American
anti-government groups: it was the April 15 deadline for filing taxes,
and in Massachusetts it was Patriots’ Day. It is also a week that has
seen attacks in the past: April 19 is the anniversary of the deadly 1993
fire near Waco, Tex., that ended a 51-day standoff and left 80 members
of a religious group called the Branch Davidians dead. April 19 is also
the anniversary of the 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City, which prosecutors
said was conceived in part a response to the Waco raid. (At Least 100 Are Hurt as Explosions Hit Near Finish Line.)
Excuse me, reporter for The New York Slimes?
"Fire near Waco, Texas"?
Who started this fire?
Forces of the government of the United States of America who were acting at the direction of the United States Attorney General, Janet Reno, did. This is rank propaganda and spin-doctoring, which is why I will continued the newspaper in whose online edition ran it as The New York Slimes from this day forward. And, not so incidentally, it was Janet Reno's Department of Injustice that sent two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to interrogate and then warn a young mother in Toledo, Ohio, a year after the Waco siege that she would be arrested for "terrorism" under the "Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances" Act (FACE) if she repeated what brought her to their bureau's attention. Her crime? Writing to a baby-killing to inform her that she was praying for her conversion.
This effort in The New York Slimes to turn attention away from "the Saudi man" who remains "at a hospital under close supervision by law enforcement authorities" and in the direction of "anti-government" groups is nothing new. Indeed, the Nanny State Mayor of the City of New York, Michael Rubens Bloomberg, did precisely this just about three years ago now:
CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric asked New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg if the bombing attempt could be a precursor to a bigger attack.
"There is no credible evidence so far that this attack was more than at least one person, the driver," said Mayor Mike Bloomberg. "After that there is no evidence that anyone else was involved. It may be, but we can't say that it is."
"There is some speculation that the materials in the Nissan Pathfinder were similar to ones that were found to some failed attacks in the U.K.," Couric asked.
"There's a limited number of things you would need," Bloomberg said. "You'd need a timer, you'd need a battery as an energy source you'd need some explosive and you'd need something to enhance it. That's going to be true no matter where or when the...another attack took place. So, anything would have enough commonalities for the conspiracy theorists to blow it up if you don't mind the pun and make something out of it."
"Are you concerned about the impact this might have on tourism?" Couric asked.
"I think people today understand we live in a dangerous world," Bloomberg said. "And you can't let the terrorists win by locking yourself in a room. What I can guarantee you is we're doing everything that we can. Whether or not we will have somebody in exactly the right place at exactly the right time to prevent something down the future nobody can do that - nobody can guarantee you."
"But there is no evidence here of a conspiracy. There is no evidence that it's tied in to anything else. It looks like an amateurish job, done by at least one person," Bloomberg added.
But if another attack were to occur, Mayor Bloomberg and the heads of all emergency response agencies would be in the city's situation room. It's powered by its own generator and allows the team to monitor video feeds, television coverage - even the corner of 45th and Seventh Avenue, where a crisis was averted.
Law enforcement officials don't know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but at this point the Mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
"If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that," Bloomberg said. "Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything." (Bloomberg: "No Evidence" Anyone Else Involved - CBS Evening.)
By the way, who was responsible for the attempt to bomb Times Square in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, New York?
Well, it was not a "homegrown" "mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something." It was a Mohammedan man named Faisal Shahzad, who was working in conjunction with other Mohammedans. Even though Faisal Shahzad was arrested, the current head of the United States Department of Injustice, Eric Holder, who had been Deputy Attorney General under Janet Reno from June 13, 1997, to January 20, 3002, tried desperately to claim after Shahzad's arrest that no conclusions could be drawn about the man's motives:
Attorney General Eric Holder hesitated to answer whether radical Islam
was even a motivating factor for the individuals responsible for the
Fort Hood shooting, the attempted Christmas Day bombing and the
attempted Times Square attack.
“There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these
actions,” Holder told the House Judiciary Committee. “One, I think just
look at each individual case. We are in the process how of talking to
Mr. (Faisal) Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to
take the action.”
The question as to whether the individuals were incited by radical Islam
came from the committee’s ranking member Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).
Smith followed, “But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?”
Holder again said, “There are a variety of reasons.”
Smith later asked, “But all I’m asking is do you think among those
variety of reasons, radical Islam might have been one of the reasons
that the individuals took the steps that they did?”
After a two-minute back and forth, Holder eventually said, “I certainly
think that it’s possible that people who espouse a radical version of
Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad.”
Holder also faced scrutiny from Democrats on the committee for his
proposal to make changes to rules regarding Miranda warnings in
terrorism cases. Holder said the public safety exception was crafted in
the 1970s to deal with common criminals and questions such as “where’s
“What we’re focusing on is the potential modernization and clarification
of the public safety exception to give police officers greater
clarity,” Holder told the committee. “Now, in 2010, with terrorist
matters, modernizing a small sliver of the public safety exception only
for terrorisms would be more effective.”
The attorney general added that law enforcement would seek to find out
from a terror suspect if others are involved, if al Qaeda is involved.
“These are all questions we think can be appropriately asked under the public safety exception,” Holder said.
Democratic lawmakers cast skepticism on Holder’s proposal to reform the
use of Miranda warnings when prosecuting terror suspects.
“Last Sunday, the attorney general unilaterally chose to inject the
issue of statutory modifications to the Miranda public safety exception
into the national debate,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman John
Conyers (D-Mich.) said. “Although no specific proposals have been made, I
believe the idea of such legislation is unnecessary and a mistake. “
The idea – not yet a formal proposal – would be a near about face if the Obama administration proceeds.
Holder first began talking about the change in Miranda warnings during
Sunday morning interview programs, in the context of the attempted
terrorist attack on Times Square in New York. This came after Holder and
the Obama administration spent months defending the use of Miranda
warnings against the suspected terrorist in the attempted Christmas Day
“As Attorney General Holder has said and has proven, and former Bush
counterterrorism advisor Richard Clarke has agreed, the current system
has worked effectively,” Conyers continued.
“For example, the attempted Times Square bomber was interrogated using
the existing public safety exception, and reportedly has provided
extremely valuable information both before and after receiving Miranda
warnings. Attempting to hastily alter an effective and constitutionally
based system could actually undermine rather than enhance law
enforcement efforts,” he added.
However, given the administration’s poor record in pouncing on terrorists, such a reversal was unexpected, Smith said.
“Treating terrorists like common criminals makes Americans less safe,”
Smith said. “Giving terrorists the ‘right to remain silent’ limits our
ability to interrogate them and obtain intelligence that could prevent
attacks and save lives.
“You recently said that you now want to work with Congress to limit
terrorists’ Miranda rights,” Smith continued. “That’s surprising since
it is this administration that has insisted upon extending
constitutional rights in the first place.”
Holder boasted about the effectiveness of the criminal justice system in
capturing Shahzad, the suspect charged in the attempted Times Square
Holder said the Shahzad’s arrest for the attempted Times Square attack
is just the most recent action in a string of arrests by the Justice
“Shahzad has been identified, located and arrested. When questioned by
federal agents, he provided useful information,” Holder said. “We now
believe that the Pakistan Taliban was responsible for the attempted
attack. We are currently working with the authorities in Pakistan on
this investigation, and we will use every resource available to make
sure that anyone found responsible, whether they be in the United States
or overseas, is held accountable.”
Holder praised the department’s fight against terrorism. In January
2009, 14 people were charged in Minnesota in connection with travel to
Somalia to train and fight with terrorist groups in Shabaab. David
Headley was convicted of plotting to bomb a Danish newspaper and for his
involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
Also, Holder cited that Christmas Day underwear bomber Umar Farouk
Abdulmutallab was charged with attempting to explode a passenger jet
over Detroit. Finally, he pointed to the February conviction of
Najibullah Zazi for conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction in
trying to blow up the New York subway system.
But Smith contended that the administration’s record is nothing to be proud of.
The Christmas Day bomber’s “attack was thwarted by a poorly made bomb
and alert passengers.” The attempted Times Square attack “was stymied by
his ineptness and alert pedestrians.”
“Our national security policy should consist of more than relying on
dumb bombers and smart citizens. Sooner or later, a terrorist is going
to build a bomb that works,” Smith said. “As commander-in-chief, the
president is responsible for protecting the American people.
Unfortunately, several of this administration’s policies have put
Americans at greater risk.” (CNSNews.com - Holder Uncertain if Radical Islam Influenced Terrorists.)
Faisal Shahzad put the reprehensible Eric Holder's effort to provide cover for Mohammedanism after the failed Times Square bombing three years ago to bed when he appeared in United States District Court for Southern New York five months ago:
A Pakistani immigrant to the US who tried to set off a
car bomb in Times Square was sentenced today to serve a life term in
District judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum said she hoped Faisal Shahzad spent some of his time behind bars thinking "carefully about whether the Qur'an wants you to kill lots of people".
Shahzad and the judge sparred repeatedly over his
reasoning for giving up his comfortable life in the US to train in
Pakistan and carry out a potentially deadly attack in the heart of New York City on 1 May.
Instead of exploding, however, his bomb, hidden in
the back of a sports utility vehicle, made a sputtered sound. This
attracted the attention of a street vendor, who alerted police. The
discovery set off an evacuation of the area and an investigation which
resulted in his arrest two days later as he sought to flee the country.
Under federal rules, the mandatory life sentence
will keep Shahzad behind bars until he dies. After delivering it,
Cedarbaum told Shahzad: "You appear to be someone who was capable of
education, and I do hope you will spend some of the time in prison
thinking carefully about whether the Qur'an wants you to kill lots of
people." Shahzad, 31, responded that the "Qur'an gives us the right to
defend. And that's all I'm doing."
Earlier, Shahzad offered a lecture of his own for Americans, and said he felt no remorse for his actions.
He told them: "We are only Muslims …but if you call
us terrorists, we are proud terrorists, and we will keep on terrorising
you." At another point, he said: "The defeat of the US is imminent."
Cedarbaum said her sentence was important "to
protect the public from further crimes of this defendant and others who
would seek to follow him".
statement, Cedarbaum cut him off at one point to ask if he had sworn
allegiance to the US when he became an American citizen last year.
"I did swear, but I did not mean it," said Shahzad, a former budget analyst from Connecticut who was born in Pakistan.
"So you took a false oath," the judge told him.
Shahzad demonstrated throughout the half-hour
proceeding in Manhattan that he had not wavered in the months since
June, when he pleaded guilty to 10 terrorism and weapons charges, some
of which carry mandatory life sentences.
"I want to plead guilty and I'm going to plead guilty 100 times forward," he said in June.
On Tuesday, he picked up where he left off. "If I
am given 1,000 lives, I will sacrifice them all for the life of Allah,"
he said at the start of a statement that lasted several minutes and was
interrupted several times by the judge, who said she wanted to hear what
he had to say about his sentencing.
He asked: "How can I be judged by a court that does not understand the suffering of my people?"
Shahzad, who last year received explosives training
in Pakistan to prepare for his bombing attempt, said attacks on
Americans would continue until the US left Muslim lands.
"We do not accept your democracy or your freedom because we already have sharia law and freedom," Shahzad said.
Two deputy US marshals stood behind Shahzad throughout the sentencing.
Shahzad had instructed his attorney not to speak. When a prosecutor tried to speak, the judge told him it was unnecessary.
Asked by the judge whether he had any final words, Shahzad said: "I'm happy with the deal that God has given me." (Times Square bomb attempt man jailed for life.)
Remember, the officials in the Obama administration refused at first to term
Major Nidal Malik Hasan, M.D., U.S.A., who shot forty-three people and killed thirteen of these people at Fort Hood, Texas, on Thursday, November 5, 2009, as a Mohammedan terrorist (see
Killing In The Name of The Religion of Peace). It was only much later that the officials of the current presidential
administration used the word "terrorism" to refer to Nidal's killing
spree even though he was in contact with an American born jihadist,
Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in an American drone attack in Yemen on September 30, 2011, who had urged his
followers to kill Americans.. Officials of the United States Army and in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) knew of this connection in advance of the Nidal Malik Hasan's shootings and did nothing as they did not consider him a threat. (See U.S. Knew of Fort Hood Suspect’s Tie to Radical Cleric )
The administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus has even gone so far to ban the words "Islamic terrorism" from being used by officials of the Federal government of the United States of America (see Awash In A Flood of Errors and Lies).
Federal, state and local law enforcement officials will go to great lengths now to deny any Mohammedan connection to yesterday's deadly explosions, and they will do so for as long as they can. And while I am sure that it will not be too long before those who are prone to conspiracy theories will be churning out scores upon scores of material in cyberspace to blame some governmental agency for the explosions as part of an effort to further restrict the exercise legitimate human liberties, something that can be neither discounted or accepted at face value at this point, it is nevertheless true that Mohammedanism is violent of its very nature and that those who commit acts of terrorism against perceived infidels are simply being faithful to their false religion's tenets.
Magdi Cristiano Allam, a Mohammedan convert who recently quit the counterfeit church of conciliarism after Jorge Mario Bergoglio's inter-religious gestures toward and words of praise for Mohammedanism (see Francis And Other Judases Abound In Holy Week), explained the violent nature of Mohammedanism at the time he left the conciliar church three weeks ago now:
What more than anything else drove me away from the Church is its
religious relativism, in particular the legitimization of Islam as true
religion, of Allah as true God, of Muhammad as true prophet, of the
Koran as sacred text, of mosques as places of worship. It is genuine
suicidal madness that John Paul II went so far as to kiss the Koran on
May 14, 1999, Benedict XVI put his hand on the Koran praying toward
Mecca in the Blue Mosque in Istanbul on November 30, 2006, while Francis
I began by extolling the Muslims "who worship one, living and merciful
God." On the contrary I am convinced that, while respecting Muslims who,
like all people, possess the inalienable rights to life, dignity and
freedom, Islam is an inherently violent ideology, as it has historically
been conflictual inside and belligerent outside. Even more I am
increasingly convinced that Europe will eventually be submitted to
Islam, as has already happened from the seventh century to the other two
sides of the Mediterranean, if it does not have the vision and the
courage to denounce the incompatibility of Islam with our civilization
and the fundamental rights of the person, if it does not ban the Koran
for apology of hatred, violence and death against non-Muslims, if it
does not condemn Sharia law as a crime against humanity in that it
preaches and practices the violation of the sanctity of everyone's life,
the equal dignity of men and women, and religious freedom, and finally
if it does not block the spread of mosques. (Enza Ferreri: Either Europe Will Become Christian Again or It Will Become Muslim.)
While it is certainly possible that others may be responsible for yesterday's explosions in Boston, Massachusetts, it is indeed an incredible sight to behold to the great lengths to which the caesars and their press agents in the mainslime media go to protect a religion whose adherents are still persecuting Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants through the Mohammedan work, doing so with hardly a word of protest or concern uttered by officials of the government of the United States of America, something that was just as true in the administration of former President George Walker Bush as it is now under the administration of President Barack Hussein Obama.
Here is just a little reminder:
The terrorists practice a fringe form of
Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast
majority of Muslim clerics -- a fringe movement that perverts the
peaceful teachings of Islam. The terrorists' directive commands them to
kill Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans, and make no distinction
among military and civilians, including women and children. . . .
I also want to speak tonight
directly to Muslims throughout the world. We respect your faith. It's
practiced freely by many millions of Americans, and by millions more in
countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and
peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the
name of Allah. (Applause.) The terrorists are traitors
to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. The enemy
of America is not our many Muslim friends; it is not our many Arab
friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every
government that supports them. (Applause.) (George Walker Bush, Address to the Nation, September 20, 2001.)
As we know, these men belonged to
al Qaeda – a group of extremists who have distorted and defiled Islam,
one of the world's great religions, to justify the slaughter of
innocents. Al Qaeda's base of operations was in Afghanistan, where they were harbored by the Taliban – a ruthless, repressive and radical movement that seized control of
that country after it was ravaged by years of Soviet occupation and
civil war, and after the attention of America and our friends had turned
Just days after 9/11, Congress authorized
the use of force against al Qaeda and those who harbored them – an
authorization that continues to this day. The vote in the Senate was 98
to 0. The vote in the House was 420 to 1. For the first time in its
history, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization invoked Article 5 – the commitment that says an attack on one member nation is an attack on all. And the United Nations Security Council endorsed the use of all necessary steps to respond to the 9/11 attacks.
America, our allies and the world were acting as one to destroy al
Qaeda's terrorist network, and to protect our common security. (Barack
Hussein Obama, Address on the War in Afghanistan, December 2, 2009.)
It could be Mohammedans are responsible for yesterday's attack in Boston, Massachusetts, and it is even the possibility that this is so that throws the caesars and their stooges in the mainslime or slimestream media into veritable panic attacks. After all, Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus and his fellow ignoramus, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., constantly smirked last year that "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive." It was all propaganda. Every single bit of it. And those who propagate propaganda are going to work overtime from ever admitting any error of judgment or premises whatsoever.
No matter what the proximate source of yesterday's attack turns out to be, we know this for sure: God is permitting these chastisements to occur to remind us that we must always stay in a state of Sanctifying Grace in a world where men and their nations are in violent rebellion against Christ the King, a world where those who present themselves, albeit falsely, as officials of the Catholic Church deny the Social Reign of Christ the King, commit hideous acts of blasphemy and sacrilege that are hateful in His sight and that deceive souls, men who have violently ripped apart the doctrines and liturgies of Holy Mother Church and deprived most Catholics of the the very supernatural helps they need to be holy and thus to save their souls. Violence against God must result in violence against men. There is no other alternative:
We come to you grieving and sorrowful because We know
that you are concerned for the faith in these difficult times. Now is
truly the time in which the powers of darkness winnow the elect like
wheat."The earth mourns and fades away....And the earth is infected by
the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, they
have changed the ordinances, they have broken the everlasting covenant."
We speak of the things which you see with your own
eyes, which We both bemoan. Depravity exults; science is impudent;
liberty, dissolute. The holiness of the sacred is despised; the majesty
of divine worship is not only disapproved by evil men, but defiled and
held up to ridicule. Hence sound doctrine is perverted and errors of all
kinds spread boldly. The laws of the sacred, the rights, institutions,
and discipline -- none are safe from the audacity of those speaking
evil. Our Roman See is harassed violently and the bonds of unity are
daily loosened and severed. The divine authority of the Church is
opposed and her rights shorn off. She is subjected to human reason and
with the greatest injustice exposed to the hatred of the people and
reduced to vile servitude. The obedience due bishops is denied and their
rights are trampled underfoot. Furthermore, academies and
schools resound with new, monstrous opinions, which openly attack the
Catholic faith; this horrible and nefarious war is openly and even
publicly waged. Thus, by institutions and by the example of
teachers, the minds of the youth are corrupted and a tremendous blow is
dealt to religion and the perversion of morals is spread. So the
restraints of religion are thrown off, by which alone kingdoms stand. We
see the destruction of public order, the fall of principalities, and
the overturning of all legitimate power approaching. Indeed this great
mass of calamities had its inception in the heretical societies and
sects in which all that is sacrilegious, infamous, and blasphemous has
gathered as bilge water in a ship's hold, a congealed mass of all filth.
These and many other serious things, which at
present would take too long to list, but which you know well, cause Our
intense grief. It is not enough for Us to deplore these innumerable
evils unless We strive to uproot them. We take refuge in your faith and
call upon your concern for the salvation of the Catholic flock. Your
singular prudence and diligent spirit give Us courage and console Us,
afflicted as We are with so many trials. We must raise Our voice and
attempt all things lest a wild boar from the woods should destroy the
vineyard or wolves kill the flock. It is Our duty to lead the flock only
to the food which is healthful. In these evil and dangerous times, the
shepherds must never neglect their duty; they must never be so overcome
by fear that they abandon the sheep. Let them never neglect the flock
and become sluggish from idleness and apathy. Therefore, united in
spirit, let us promote our common cause, or more truly the cause of God;
let our vigilance be one and our effort united against the common
enemies. . . .
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must
be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil
affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest
impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which
men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already
inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit"
is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and
out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes
transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things
and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state
than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that
cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of
this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free
speech, and desire for novelty.
Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some
dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to
see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far
and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though
small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse
which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so
carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors
arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some
book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately
doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is
there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold
publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and
those who use it may be snatched from death again and again? (Pope Gregory XVI, Mortalium Animos, August 15, 1832.)
We must remember that we are the greatest terrorists alive. Our sins caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakable horrors in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death and they caused Our Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart to be pierced through and through with those Seven Swords of Sorrow, four of which were plunged deep into that same Immaculate Heart during her Divine Son's Passion and Death.
Yes, the worst sort of
terrorism is Mortal Sin, which kills the life of Sanctifying Grace in a
The worst kind of slavery is slavery to Original Sin,
wherein one's soul is captive to the devil and thus blinded from seeing
the world clearly and whose disorderly passions are even more inclined
to act in accord with the spur of the moment rather than in accord with
even natural reason.
Fallen human nature is such, however, that men vie
with each in acts of terrorism by means of their unrepentant Mortal
Sins, blinding themselves voluntarily as they seek after everything but
the Catholic Faith as the means to guide their lives, being content to
remain in slavery to devil, whether by means Original Sin or Mortal Sin,
as they heap up riches in this life in the belief that this is the
singular and all-defining purpose of human existence justifying whatever
means are employed to obtained monetary wealth and/or worldly power.
The insanity and madness of Modernity that is
supposed to produce "happiness" in this mortal vale of tears winds up
producing anxiety and fear and misery and sadness.
People do not know
how to cope in the midst of their small crosses, no less the greater
tragedies that might strike them or one of their loved ones without
notice. All of the accumulated wealth and technology and other supposed
"advancements" in daily living have provided no substitute for the love
of the true God has He has revealed Himself to men exclusively through
the true Church, the Catholic Church. Although fallen human nature has
worked its vagaries throughout human history, including during the era
of Christendom in the Middle Ages, it is far easier for people to "snap"
when they live in a country where
"everything goes," where every kind of vile image is displayed, where
every manner of "opinion" is considered to contain within itself the
possibility of being true, where most people have become so accustomed
to the daily carnage of the preborn that it is considered "disordered"
to give the matter any thought at all.
Mind you, this is to take nothing whatsoever away from the genuine tragedy that occurred yesterday and the terrible grief that so many are experiencing at this time. We pray for the souls of the dead, for the consolation of their relatives and friends and for the recovery of those who were wounded.
Although yesterday's attack could have happened at any time or any place in this country, it remains true that men who live in cities and states and nations that permit and promote each of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance will suffer from violent attacks as no one can be safe when God Himself is under violent attack and mockery every day in the name of "civil" and "religious" freedom."
This is the time of Antichrist, who has many figures walking abroad amid the lords of Modernity in the world and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. We must simply endeavor to remain faithful to the very end.
These words from the book that inspired fourteen year-old Therese Martin to seek admission the Carmel of Lisieux are rather pertinent:
However, it would not be correct to conclude from this testimony that there will be none of the elect left on earth, and that the Son of God will not fail to keep the promise made to His Church, when He sid, Propter electos, dies breviabuntur ("because of the elect, the days will be shortened"). Moreover, St. John, in his [Apocalypse] adds, "And he [the beast] will be worshiped by those who dwell upon the earth whose names are not written in the book of life."
St. Augustine tells us that, in the reign of the Antichrist, thee will be multitudes of martyrs who will display a heroic constancy, and also a number, more or less large, of confessors who will manage to escape into caves and high or sheer mountains, and God will see to it that these sanctuaries shall elude the vigilance and investigations of the persecutors, and will not permit the Devil to point them out them.
Daniel tells us that, at the time of when this terrible persecution breaks out, the abomination of desolation will openly sit enthroned in the holy place. "The king shall do s he pleases," says Daniel. "He shall exalt himself and make himself greater than any god; he shall utter dreadful blasphemies against the God of god . . . He shall have no regard for the gods of his ancestors . . . for no good shall he have regard."
In other words, once the man of sin has cowed the human once by his threats and entangled it in the meshes of his lies and wiles, he will observe no restraint, show his hand, and act openly. He will not permit anyone to worship or invoke any other god than himself, and will proclaim himself sole lord of heaven and earth. Wherever he is not present in person, men will be obliged to pay homage to his image or statue. Et elevabitur, mangifcabitur adversus ominem Deum. He will tolerate neither the Mosaic religion, nor natural religion itself. He will persecute with equal thoroughness Jews, schismatics, heretics, deists, and every sect that recognizes the existence of a supreme being and the immortality of the life to come. Yet God, in His wisdom, will draw good from evil. The horrible tempest that His justice has allowed to be unleashed upon the earth will result in the disappearance of false religions. Along with Judaism, it will abolish the remains of Mohammedans, idolatrous superstitious, and every religion hostile to the Church.
It will dead the finishing blow to the sects of darkness. Freemasonry, Carbonarism, Illuminism, and all subversive societies will vanish in the vortex of wickedness which will be their work, and which they had prepared for centuries in the belief that it would be their definitive, supreme triumph. They will have assisted unintentionally in the establishment of the reign of unity foretold by our Lord: "There one flock then, and one shepherd."
The triumph of the wicked one will be of short duration, but the consolations that follow will be universal, abundant, proportionate to the extent of the tribulations to the Church will have suffered.
However, the final consummation will not come yet, as it is written:
And when the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and loud voices in heaven cried out; the voices of angels and of virgins, together with the voices of confessors and holy martyrs, will hail Christ with praise and acclamations, giving thanks for His victory over the Antichrist, and for the extermination of the wicked. All men, now become worshipers of one and the same God, all professing the same faith, united in the same adoration, sharing the same table, will exclaim in chorus: "The kingdom of this world now belongs our Lord and to his Anointed One . . . We praise you, O Lord God Almighty, who is and who was and who are to come; because You have assumed your great power, and You have begun Your reign. (Father Charles Arminjon, The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life, translated by Susan Conroy and Peter McEnerny. Manchester, New Hampshire: Sophia Institute Press, 2008, pp. 67-68.)
Our weapon in these times has to be Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary.
Pray the Rosary.
Pray the Rosary.
Pray the Rosary.
We must enfold ourselves into the love of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as we make reparation for our own many sins, which are so responsible for the worsening of the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large, as we seek to restore all things in Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen.
The enemies of Christ the King within in our souls and in the world-at-large will be defeated by Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary and the fulfillment of her Fatima Message, and that won't be by Francis The Deceiver.
Yes, Our Lady's Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end.
Have every confidence that this will be so!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
