Today is the First Friday of December ALREADY! We are also in the Novena to the Immaculate Conception which is December 8th. I will write on this both in the Consecration to Jesus through Mary section of Formation as well as a talk - soon
First Friday is a day of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We should try to honor the First Fridays as Our Lord has asked us with Confession, Mass and prayers of Reparation to His Most Sacred Heart. The article above that I have posted a link to is very disturbing because it shows the sleepiness of most of the leaders in the Catholic Church that should be alarmed and should do all in their power to preserve the Traditions of the Catholic Church.
Cardinal Burke's statement regarding the proposed invention of a "New Ecumenical Mass" that Catholics and Protestants alike can participate in --- could also apply to the Novus Ordo Mass (New Order of Mass ) The so-called Ordinary Form that most parishes use.
In the article, Cardinal Burke states:
“For Catholics to engage in some kind of ecumenical Eucharist would be abandoning the Catholic Faith,” stated Cardinal Burke. “This is a profoundly false ecumenism which would do grave harm to the Faith and to souls.”
This is exactly what Archbishop Lefebrve said at the time of the "New" Mass in 1969. The purpose of creating a "New Mass" was to make it more inviting to the Protestants - but it ended up killing the faith of the Catholics. When he voiced his opposition at the time - many Catholics could not understand what he was talking about because they did not experience it yet and they felt that they had to be "obedient" to authority - not knowing that we are not to be obedient to authority that compromises the Faith! Also, the infiltrating Freemasons who had made these changes (which are not permitted) condemned Archbishop Lefebrve for his wisdom - they did not want the people to catch on to their plot of destruction. Now 60 years later, we are seeing the bad fruits that this holy man was warning us about and who someday will be recognized for it when we wake from our slumber. The Freemasons must be celebrating at each of their Lodge meetings!
We grew up with this New Mass not knowing it was changed significantly from the original authentic Mass - and now our children are losing the faith and Churches are closing.
YES THESE ARE THE END TIMES! May we wake up and see that the Tradition of the Catholic Church has been compromised and that we need to return to it in order to save our souls and the faith of our children.
May Our Lady pray for us! May we make Reparation to the Heart of Jesus for the compromises that have occurred and continue to occur in His Church. God bless!
