Greetings in Jesus and Mary....
Blessed Easter Thursday! I thought I would write on this topic today because it seems to be escalating and we as Traditional Catholics need to be aware....we are Satan's enemy #1.....In case anyone is wondering why....well.....read on!
First, we UNDERSTAND and know that the Latin Mass is the Mass of All Ages. It was the Mass that the saints of old attended. It is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. The infiltrators that came in decades ago to Rome wanted to dismantle God's Church and the best way to do that is by TRYING to get rid of the Holy Mass. If we were to study Catholic Church history....we would see that the attack on the Mass is nothing new. Satan knows its value and his minions will follow and listen to his deceits.
Second, we are also faithful to the 10 Commandments; to Scripture. The Protestants can scream that they are the faithful ones to Scripture, but many of their prominent denominations have succumbed to agreeing to birth control, abortion, same sex marriages and transgenderism. These beliefs are against Holy Scripture. Solid traditional Catholics will not budge on these. They will remain faithful and only by God's grace!
Third, traditionalists, by God's grace, do not buy propaganda. They use faith and reason to make their judgements. The polls show that essentially, for more than 80 years seven out of every ten Americans were members of some religious body. Then, in 2000, the bottom fell out. Why?? Since 2000, the percentage of Americans who are members of a religious institution has dropped from 70% to 47%, and the decline shows no sign of slowing down. Another recent poll showed that only 39% of Americans said that religion was “very important” to them, down from 62% who said it was “very important” to them back in 1998. The Catholic Church is not immune to this decline; in fact, it’s one of the hardest hit religions. Since 2000, there’s been a 41.5% decrease in infant baptisms. (Two of my own six grandchildren are not baptized). WHY? Read on...
First, before we talk about the revealed corruption; as a traditional Catholic, we need to address the concern of Archbishop Marcel Lefebrve about the NEW MASS. He stated, "If anyone is going to attended these New Masses; they will be at risk of losing their Faith". HE WAS RIGHT....proof is found in the present day statistics. OK.... now for the scandals and propaganda.....
In 2002 there were revelations of widespread sexual abuse among Catholic clergy and a massive coverup of that abuse by the bishops of the Church. These revelations understandably sent shockwaves throughout the Catholic Church. Throughout the first half of the 20th century, the Catholic Church in this country carried huge moral weight in the eyes of most Americans. The unveiling of deep corruption in the Church, which suggested that many of the Church’s leaders did not act as if they themselves believed in God, undermined that exalted status of the Church, but it also called into question the value of religion in general. If the leaders of the largest religion in the country (and the world) don’t believe in God, why should anyone?
This opened the door to the leading atheist speakers of the world to influence the doubters to their faith. Harris, Dawkins, and Hitchens became household names, leading the charge of the new atheists. The premise of the new Atheism was essentially this: We all see how horrible religion is, so we should look to the source: a belief in God. And we don’t have to believe in God anymore because science has disproved His existence. All we need to do is believe in what we can understand through our senses: the material world.
The immense success of these new atheists was fostered by a fourth and final major factor in the decline of religion: the rise of social media on the Internet. The first decade of this century saw the creation of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and other social media giants. This burgeoning technology recreated the social landscape of America, and it also allowed the evangelists of the new atheism to spread their message far and wide.
In the time before the Internet, atheism existed of course, but was unable to spread virally. Most major media institutions in the 1950’s, for example, would not allow atheism to be promoted in any way (while it did allow someone like Bishop Fulton Sheen to promote Catholicism!). Of course, beginning in the 1960’s anti-religious sentiment grew stronger in the media, but it still rarely directly attacked religion. The Internet, however, was a breeding ground for evangelical atheism. Anyone who has spent even a little time on a site like Reddit knows it is swarming with young, aggressive atheists who love to attack religion at any opportunity. Whereas in earlier times atheism was usually restricted to urban areas like San Francisco or New York, by the early 2000’s with the Internet and charismatic New Atheist leaders like Harris, Dawkins, and Hitchens, anti-religious fervor could spread like wildfire, and it did.
Also today, the hostile attacks on a Christian society are coming from the “new Barbarians”: Collectivists, Marxists, the Communist Party USA, atheists, the pro-choice movement, the feminist movement, homosexuals and government. Today it is the followers of Mohammed who are attacking the people of the Cross globally and in America.
There is a coalition within America that is anti-Catholic, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic. Their tactics and strategy are to diminish the role of religion by removing God from the public square. As that has happened in America we now have Collectivists, atheists, abortionists, homosexuals (some of whom are practicing witchcraft) and the U.S. government taking positions and implementing policies which are anti-Catholic, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic.
The American way of life that we know and love has led to great happiness and prosperity both in the homeland and throughout the Western world. A way of life that insures life, liberty and pursuit of happiness as guaranteed by United States Constitution. A way of life that celebrates life over death. A way of life that insures salvation and the return of the Kingdom of God to this earth.
Satan and his minions are trying to dismantle that and our governments and our churches, including our pope, are working toward a one world totalitarian order of communism.
May we pick up our rosaries as Our Lady has asked us to do. She came many decades ago to warn us of this day. May we pray for her intercession and for the Reign of Her Immaculate Heart so that Jesus may reign in the hearts of ALL men.
Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary....pray for us!
