The communist poison has been immersed into our society. We can see this by the way our children are growing up with the ideal of rebellion against authority or thought of God. The slippery slope of the people made to believe against all that has come before them, denying the existence of God, their traditions rooted in faith, and many of the family structure that was found in Christian image of marriage. Our lives have been hit with this poison from all sides, weakening the body and confusing it with it’s own desires and pride like being intoxicated. We need to find the solution in the Cross, the Cross in marriage and in the family, which produces it’s fruits in religious vocations aimed solely to the higher life with God. The obedience children had to their parents has been attacked by those enemies of Christ planting seeds of doubts, teaching people that what came before them was out of date, that their parents were not enlightened and smart, but that Christian parents were merely superstitious and did not think like those educated minds. Oh what poisonous fruit we been sold and have all bitten into at a point with Liberalism. We need God more than ever now, seeing the fruits of this poison trying to destroy the family. It is why I sense the Providence of God has allowed this, to point to the need of the Holy Family, especially our Lady and St. Joseph which guarded the Christ Child from harm. It is found in the rosary these deep secrets and mysteries that tie humanity to the Divine love of God. It was the deep reflections on the Psalms and life of Christ through the Holy Rosary that keeps the voice of the Holy Mass singing to Heaven in love and obedience to the Father by adoration to His Divine Will and plan.
The enemy knows once people have the Faith, they will love it more than any person. As the Faith grows the Love in people for Christ grows, so does the love of God and that bond of the Holy Trinity which draws us to Heaven. So the planned attack was just to have people hate the Faith and ridicule those who practice it. It is the witness we must begin to endure, just as Christ did during His trial and sorrowful suffering when He was dragged to endure pain and humiliation.
“ And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him: Prophesy: and the servants struck him with the palms of their hands.”
We know as sinners that it us putting Christ to endure such evils when we have doubted Him and pushed Him aside when we sin, which is why now as we love God and have the Faith makes us repent and love Him more knowing that He endured such wickedness and sickness from our part out of Love. Many of the enemies of the Church come from these homes that do not know God or hate God, yet nothing is greater than Love to help them to see by our lives what draws the heart to see our Crucified Lord and adore Him. How many of us seen people change after having a child into more selfless people. This could be the reason why the devil chooses the killing of the innocent to happened in the womb, for if children where being born people’s hearts might be opened by the mere innocence of such a loving creation that seeks the love of its parents, just as Christ seeks the Love of us to console Him, even while being God. It is Love that transforms us!
Communism seems to distort everything God has done with Monastic life. It strips away private property and distorts the virtue of the Spirit of Poverty by which all of Faith aim to see that everything is not ours but given by God, so it is the true sense of community and sharing in alms for the love of God. Yet, what communism seems to take away is that Fatherly love that makes the gift of the material world as a means to get to Heaven, while it creates this matrix of lies to tie people merely to the material world in order to adore the State and thus Satan taking the place of God. The lie is placed above the reality of God’s love of His creation and His children. Oh what dangers! This is why we seem so confused on what life is, yet slowly we are being pushed to hate God and all that He has given us like Churches and the Holy Priesthood. It is the rejection of the Father, as a provider of goodness and discipline. Communism hides behind the dragon, literary by a country that idolizes it, while the Catholic Faith is true Communion with God and the Divine Kingdom. Fr. Burfitt really reminded me of a world, before the missionaries came, lost without God and imprisoned by the Devil in its rituals and practices. The good being oppressed and evil making an altar by which it offers it’s evil sacrifices of what is good and innocent to keep their immorality like the Aztecs did with their virgins and children. Now friends and families are at odds divided and not trusting each other to hear the Truth against what has been plotted against them from the fall, their damnation by rebellion of the good laws of God. For as the Lord says if those that do not believe are already condemned!
“ He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
So if people aren’t taught to believe they risk being lost forever! It is the sad reality, of the risk of many souls rejecting God because they have been taught against believing in the Loving Father. It is why the gift of our Mother is such a treasure, for a mother can show us what the Father really means when He teaches us. We might be afraid when we first come to the Father asking for help, yet a mother always seems to comfort us in being able to trust in Her love of her Spouse. More and more I can see that we are being flooded by the poison and many are flooded away by this new religious way of living like there is not a Divine Master or rejection of our Mother the Virign Mary, which helps us to see God controls all things and He is a Father that have authority of all things.
We must follow the Cross. This is a reminder that in every procession we can give the witness of a community following the Lord and His Church, like our Lady followed our Lord on Calvary and St. John stayed near her, as we try to protect the Cross being seen in Society. The witness we are to give to the world is that we are not to choose ourselves as the ultimate law of what is good or evil, but that we should recognize that when prideful man thinks he knows what is best for humanity man kills God and all Goodness in society by placing Christ, which is Truth, on the Cross to death by not wanting to give up our own power of the will and intellect in the service of True Goodness. Rather choosing the place to place Innocence itself to die rather than giving up our power. It is why the Lord says we should preach Christ Crucified,
 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness:”
[1 Corinthians 1:23]
the way we should always see ourselves under the Law of God and not above it, so that in Love (True Charity) we can truly see what is good. It is to walk the narrow path, holding on to the Rosary and reflecting on the Life, Death, and Resurrection/Glory of our Lord, which gives us the reminder of the transcendent and the promises of the Heavenly kingdom. It is in holy priest we must see His leadership to see beyond the temporal alone, but use the gifts given as Christ did to use it all as a remedy to heal, transform, and redeem for our Salvation.
God has made with us. Our Lady of Holy Hope, covert us! St. Francis pray for us.
“ The angel stood in a narrow place between two walls, wherewith the vineyards were enclosed.”
“ Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.”Douay-Rheims Bible
The Memorare Prayer
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
-St. Bernard of Clairvaux
May we do all for the glory of God & remain under our Lady’s Mantle, Pax in Umbra Dei+
