"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn." [Luke 2:7]
Welcome to Episode 666 of "Let's Bow To The State" featuring the Vatican and the Catholic Bishops.
My question is... when will enough be enough? When will it be enough for us laity to demand our God-given-rights to the Sacraments (see Canon Law, Can. 213 "The Christian faithful have the right to receive assistance from the sacred pastors out of the spiritual goods of the Church, especially the word of God and the sacraments.")? To hold our clergy accountable on these issues? To stand firm behind the few faithful clergy? To stop our mindless and useless squabbling among each other and turn against our greatest enemy: the devil.
It wasn't enough to purposefully keep the fullness of the Faith from the laity, to withhold Tradition, to ostracize those who asked valid questions about the Faith and who wanted the Latin Mass, to sexually abuse our children and our seminarians and cover it up. Now, the Plandemic, COVID-19 has uncovered a whole new side of these cowardly Bishops... now, every single Bishop in the United States withheld the Sacraments from the faithful because "the Government told them to".
Now the USCCB congratulates a radical pro-abortion cheat, Joe Biden as "the president elect; soon-to-be second Catholic president!" after a horrid election that still reeks of fraud. Now the USCCB tells us it's our "moral duty" to take a vaccine that, A: Has indeed, aborted baby cells in it and B: is way too rushed, barely tested and pushed by the Godless, Satanic Elite. Now the USCCB continues to beg for more money from its laity, even after withholding the sacraments because of a flu, scaremongering and shaming those who "disobeyed" the State concerning its Communistic "COVID mandates". Now the Vatican found it worthy of us to put up the most ugly, demonic and quite-frankly insulting Nativity set that I have personally ever seen.
And just because this wasn't enough to make sure as many Catholics as possible either lost all hope or just stopped going to Mass entirely, the majority of dioceses are finding it, in their blackest of hearts, a good idea, to only have RSVP's for Christmas Mass. And if you do not RSVP, and if they say there is no more room (even though there is?) you will be literally banned from Christmas Mass. Unable to go.
To say that this behavior is anti-Christ is an understatement. To say that this behavior goes directly against Church teaching and Canon Law is an understatement. To say that we, the Catholic laity are fed up with the lies, the cheating, the total abandonment and abuse of the Body of Christ and His children is an understatement.
Catholics, hold your clergy accountable, not just by your words and actions but by your prayers and fasting. Offer their very actions, their very wicked behavior against Christ and the laity, and turn it right around, offering it as Penance for their souls. This is hardly about a "virus", and any few Catholics with a working brain who believe this, I pity you. Those who deem themselves the "rulers of the world" have been working oh-so-hard for their great victory (the so called "Great Reset") and it is very near indeed. But all this cannot take us away from Christ, not really. We must cling to Him, fight for Him, cry with Him, and keep getting up after each blow issues by our very own spiritual fathers, our very own brothers in Christ, and, our very own Pope.
This is ultimately about souls. This is about Satan getting his grubby claws on each and every one of us, because we are so dear to Christ, that He died the most gruesome of deaths for us. This is about eternal damnation and hellfire. This is not about masks, or a flu, this is about your soul and its eternal abode (Heaven or Hell). This is precisely what every single, revolting action committed against Christ, against Catholics, against us is about; the eternal damnation of every single one of the souls that Christ died for.
So what do we do? We go to this, the very root of every single one of our problems here on earth. We turn towards Christ, we pray the rosary and find a non-cowardly Catholic priest to hear our confessions. We offer up these horrible and inhuman actions committed for the very souls that are doing the devils work. We offer up our daily grind, our daily annoyances and this heavy burden we all carry for our souls, for final perseverance and for the souls in most need... for those working against us and against Christ. This is what the number one "Elite" does not want. This is what He hates the most and fears the most. That we, as God's people keep our heads up, fight the good fight, examine all things, pray for our enemies, forgive our trespassers, cling to the Eucharist and Our Lady, pray the rosary, and offer this all up for SOULS.
Do not give Satan the satisfaction of his imagined victory: live as true brothers and sisters in Christ. We must engage our minds into this very reality; that we are in a society that is totally anti-Christ, anti-Catholic, meaning, anti-US. We are being attacked. And it is time to fight for the truth, and while doing this, fight the fight that even Satan doesn't want to believe we have in us... the fight to keep the peace between each other as brothers in Christ, the fight to forgive our greatest enemies, the fight for offering our pains and attacks and perhaps yes, even our martyrdom for the souls of those oppressing us in the name of the devil.
There is nothing else worth fighting for than eternal Salvation, and that, my dear friends, is exactly what this is all about. We must remember also that "Emmanuel" means, "God with us"!
