Here we go again – more sobering topics. Well, the reason for such a focus is because Christ’s army is sleeping and the enemy is working 24/7 to destroy Christ’s Church especially our children. The pictured New York Times headlines was due to Masonic Judges on the Supreme Court (read it for yourself in "Behind the Lodge Door" - PDF link found below this article). If you are a parent or a grandparent, you may feel helpless to the onslaught against our children. There is a blog-site that I frequent where the woman who writes the articles just lost a grandchild to suicide. She is so distraught and so understandably so. We want so much to retrieve time to be able to speak to that child and we wish we were more diligent in the past. Our children are the targets of the enemy – their education, their morality, their lives and finally their souls! How did we let this happen? When did it happen?
In Scripture, children are told to be obedient to their parents. In Ephesians chapter 6, verse 1 it says, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” This command in different ways can actually be found about 70 times in the entire Bible! Yet - the society reveals a different message to our children. They are told that you are your own individual with your own rights. Even my generation has been pumped this. I have family and friends who have quite surrendered their children’s faith to whatever that child wants it to be! Seriously! Do we not hold that the Catholic Church is the one Jesus Christ established? There are only one set of ABSOLUTE TRUTHS that we will all come to believe in Heaven! Do we think God will tolerate people not believing in the set of Truths that He has given us? Heaven will NOT be filled with chaos - there will be order and there will be oneness! The absolute truth of: 1 + 1 = 2 cannot be changed! This is an absolute truth! Today – we believe in subjective truths -- we have relativism! Actually, we have many isms – rationalism, naturalism, socialism, etc. When did we allow this to happen?
There were many pre-Vatican II Popes that saw this creeping into the world. One such Pope was Pope Leo XIII who wrote against Freemasonry in his encyclical: "Humanum Genus" in 1884. We have talked about and mentioned Freemasonry A LOT in the previous articles. It has been a menace to our Faith and the life of the Church. It is the reason for numerous souls being lost. Our Lady of Good Success mentioned Freemasonry and said that there would come a time when it would influence everything. The ultimate purpose of Freemasonry, Pope Leo said, is "the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism." Fundamental to Masonry and to naturalists, he said, is that human nature and human reason "ought in all things to be mistress and guide." Sincere adherents of Masonry, he continued, "care little for duties to God, or pervert them by erroneous and vague opinions. For they deny that anything has been taught by God; they allow no dogma of religion or truth which cannot be understood by human intelligence, nor any teacher who ought to be believed by reason of his authority." Addressing specifically the issue of religious education, Pope Leo said Masons imagine States "ought to be constituted without any regard for the laws and precepts of the Church." Moreover, the Pontiff asserted, Masons "teach the great error of this age--that regard for religion should be held as an indifferent matter, and that all religions are alike."
This says it all and unfortunately this indifference to religions is repeated in the documents of the Second Vatican Council. Specifically in the Religious Liberty Document which in itself makes one cringe! (Article link below) The Freemasonic Cardinal Josef Suenens stated that the Second Vatican Council was the: "French Revolution in the Church". The religious liberty is in the closing speech of Pope Paul VI. It is spoken of outright by Pope Francis today! He does not want us to share the Catholic Faith but to meet people where they are! And we wonder why our children are leaving the Catholic Church! The consequences are great and we sit idle with silence as souls are falling into Hell as Our Lady predicted at Quito Ecuador and at Fatima.

Again, we will close with hope - Our Lady of the Rosary told us to pray the Rosary - time and time again! The promises are real and Our Lady will help us. She is more a Mother to our children than we are! May we pray it for our children and may we offer many Masses for them to come back to the One True Faith!
Holy Mother Mary - pray for us and our children!
