Feast of Christ the King

The below prayer & photo is from the latest post by Ann Barnhardt. It is a slight variation to the same prayer that I have taped to my monitor stand and say every day at work. I recommend all do likewise, wherever possible. Ed

                             ****************************************************

O Jesus Christ, I acknowledge You as Universal King. All that has been made has been created for You. Exercise all Your rights over me. I renew my Baptismal Vows. I renounce Satan, his pomps and his works; I promise to live as a good Christian. And, in particular do I pledge myself to labor, to the best of my ability, for the triumph of the rights of God and of Your Church. Divine Heart of Jesus, to You do I offer my poor services, laboring that all hearts may acknowledge Your sacred kingship, and that thus the reign of Your peace be established throughout the whole universe. Amen.

SAD REALITY

Dear Catholics of the World: 

This picture sums in toto the entirety of all the Vatican II aggiornamento that has occurred since 1962; this was its aim in theory; this IS its ultimate goal in fact. Welcome to your NuChurch...and weep.

REPOST: Guardians of the Gate

Just so we Catholics don't forget who we truly are, I repost this a second time in light of the recent pagan rituals defiling the Sacred Temples within the Vatican Walls. Ed.

                                      ***********************************


       

The above is who - and what - we Roman Catholics are. Silent sentinels, grabbing a short rest after a lengthy battle, ever ready to again raise our sword on short notice against any who dare try to breach our walls. We remain at our post, standing in defense of all that lays beyond the doorway, seemingly inert but with ears attuned to the winds around us.

This is our Catholic lot. This is what our Godparents promised in our name at our Baptism. This is why we were Confirmed as Soldiers of Christ. This is what we vowed at our Nuptial Mass. This is what wives and children expect of their husbands and Fathers - and what some Mothers must do in his stead. This is what the Cristeros did, as did their Vendean brothers and sisters before them.

These are the Faithful spouses, guarding the door to homes long abandoned by their once-thought lifelong mate; these are the Cardinal Burke's; the Athanasius Schneider's; the Bernard Fellay's. These are the likes of Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher, of Sts. Edmond Campion and Margaret Clitherow. These are the Mundabor's and the Rorate Caeli's; the Misses Barnhardt and White, as well as The Remnant and The Catholic Family News. There are others, if one cares to look - they hide in plain site.

Who guard not to keep all others out, but to keep out only those who would fain to see harm done to those within the sacred walls. Who fight not to overthrow those in earthly authority, but to preserve that which has been bequeathed by the rightful King of both Heaven and earth. 

We are members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, founded by Christ to bring all men to their eternal Salvation. Do not try to make of us anything besides that which Christ Himself ordained from all Eternity, or we will fight. Do not tell us we can now subvert our Faith in countless ways and still attain Heaven, or we will vomit you out of our mouths. Do not think that the wearing of white, purple or red assures our submission to your heretical or heterodox words, for we will bathe your darkness with 2,000 years of The Way, The Truth and The Light. Know that we cannot - and will not - walk where your path leads. We are sheep, but we can not - and will not - let ourselves be led astray by wolves.

Why?

Simple...

We. are. Roman. Catholics.

On Truth...

*(NB: updated to add clarity to a statement)

"An error which is not resisted is approved; a truth which is not defended is suppressed..." (Pope Felix III, Quoted by Leo XIII in Inimica Vis, 1892)    


I'm not a prolific blog writer. My limitations of time, education, knowledge and moxie leave me content to write when I can, as well as I can and as often as I can. Which is all any one person can do to defend Catholic Truth - the objective, Christ-centered version and NOT the subjective, modernist one. Unfortunately, the latter pretty much is what passes for Catholicism today. Now, even God's Commandments can be interpreted subjectively... and it's just perfectly fine, doncha know, cuz Jesus is your Friend and wants all dogs to go to heaven, just like YOU will, regardless of your earthly lifestyle cuz you were SUCH a nice person and died saying "Jesus"!

Ahem...sorry.

Truth is such a rare commodity these days, with some people having obvious trouble spelling the word while others have equal trouble defining its meaning. We've gone from Pilates' derisive "What is truth?" to some internecine definition relative to each individuals particular whim and fancy: homosexuality is good and holy; climate change will end the world in 5...4...3; Pope Francis is not a heretic; etc. Even though moral, spiritual or scientific facts have proven objective truth, still we try and make truth sweet and palatable for, as Flannery O’Connor reminded us,“The truth doesn’t change according to our ability to stomach it". 

Or, to put it more bluntly:Truth hurts!  

Which is why the current standard for truth - to make it the more easily digestible for Catholics without it hurting so much - is to reshape it into something it is not - relative. Whether it's done on a moral, spiritual or doctrinal level, making truth relative, arbitrary and subjective for the pewsitters simply feeds their "feel good" genes, which in turn feeds their money into the parish collection basket, which then feeds the Chancery, the Vatican, its numerous and nefarious many-tentacled dicastries and ultimately, the Papacy. 

Feed the hunger and the hunger will return to you what you want!! 

Primarily, all the above pablum is the natural son of a "feel-good", 1960's mother called Vatican II, yet it's also the bastard son of each Catholic that has embraced it since, especially now in this current Francis era. As I have said on previous occasions, we Catholics are a bunch of lemmings willingly going over a cliff, and to which I will now add: while the Bishops are glad-handing each of us as we fall. We are lemmings because we take as Truth all that we are fed, even though we know - WE KNOW! - that certain items are NOT THE TRUTH! To wit:

- homosexual relationships are good and holy, even though the Bible - the revealed Word of God - says otherwise. Read: Sodom and Gomorrah.

- adultery can be good and holy and therefore can allow an adulterous couple to receive the Body and Blood of Christ worthily, even though God Himself said to us "Thou shalt not commit adultery." As the Baltimore Catechism taught us: "God enlightened and moved [men] to write all those things, and only those things, that He wished to be written" (emphasis mine). He did not leave us an open-ended statement, but a clear and concise one. Accept it, fellow lemmings. God has already spoken on the matter. There are no sub-sets to the 6th Commandment that will ever make adultery licit.

- currently, we have seen idol worshipping within the sacred walls of the Vatican, presided over by the Pope, numerous Cardinals, and other (c)atholic religious. Permit me a direct quote from God on this travesty:
"I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me. Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them..." 

And if you believe that God left this open-ended, here is the final portion of his statement:

"I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me..." (my emphasis).  

Isn't it obvious that many clerics - from the top Papal one down to the lowliest of Bishops - already hate God by offering public worship to idols within His Temple?

Get ready, fellow Catholics...His [God's] chastisement is coming.

We were all created with Free Will. Our Lord leaves to us the choice to love or to hate the Creator. To that I will add: indifference. Which more than likely will lead those who are indifferent into hearing these words of their Creator:



"But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth..."

We should also - especially now - remember the one Gift all receive from the Holy Ghost at our confirmations: Fear of the Lord, which is that "...chaste fear whereby we revere God and avoid separating ourselves from him".

We Catholics need to wake up not only ourselves but our Catholic Faith also, and before it becomes too late.
(NB: see also Msgr. Charles Pope's article on Indifference here.)

"Can a Mother Be Without Tenderness..."

In the case of abortion, yes... 

Calvary Cemetery, Wichita, Kansas
                                                      
Their silent voices heard by none; cold; uncaring; unloved; alone.
Crying, their Angel Guardians carry them Home.

Before the face of their Father, with tenderness, are they placed,
The pain of their death now overtaken, by Grace.

Such Tenderness! Such Love! Now do they see, 
In the eyes of their Savior, what should have been Thee.

Now only He will behold them full grown, 
And bestow upon them rewards that were stole.

By the one who was made, to bring them to life, 
But, willingly, did forfeit that God-given right. 

'Do you forgive?' each one shall be asked,
'This creature, this woman, this One I did task?'

'Oh, Yes, Dearest Savior! There can be no other,
that ever will we Love and Pray for:

For She Is Our Mother!'
