It seems that we are currently in the midst of a conspiracy laden James Bond tainted realm of fiction and fantasy within the ranks and wrinkles of the Catholic Church and the crises she finds Herself embroiled in. It is the stuff of story book and spy movies for sure, yet as so often is the case, sometimes reality is much more interesting and fascinating than the most highly budgeted action drama story that unfolds on the big screen. To think that 1100 men were infiltrated into seminaries around the world decades ago to embed themselves virulently so as to reek havoc and mayhem years later, seems like fiction, yet the evidence exists and has existed for quite some time that indicates the validity of these claims and story. The validity of a story and happenstance that seems surreal and impossible at the least and despicable and satanically evil at most. Yet that is just what it is, Satanically evil and ripping and tearing to shreds the Faithful today, in the headlines and controversies swirling around our parishes, seminaries, religious communities and the Universal Church.

Most of us just don’t realize or want to admit that the evils that consume our world, our country, our communities, our families and our lives are real and very influential. We have been taught in our Catholic Schools and Churches, by our Catholic educators and clergy that Satan is not real, no not at all, He is just the personification of evil in the world. As if that should be a comfort and make less deplorable and more palatable the condition of our fallen and sinful human condition. We have sugar coated and even legalized the most wicked of vices like sodomy, same sex marriage and abortion, and now seem surprised and scandalized when they reek havoc and destruction within our own lives, parishes and communities. We have convinced ourselves and others that sin is personal, a choice to make that only effects the individual and not others on a wider and broader scale. Who we sleep with certainly has no implications in society as a whole. We have consumed the Kool Aid and now are suffering the effects of the poison that we have willfully and with complicity encouraged and created. And we are still in denial. We still cannot admit that a world without God is a world in chaos, a world in darkness, and a world not worthy of those who are holy. The holy are marginalized, labeled as intolerant and bigoted, and martyred on the light of this Truth, and barbarity and depravity continues and intensifies. When holy men and women do bring Truth into the light and expose wickedness, they are accused of bearing false witness, labeled accusers, and are forced into hiding and fear for their lives.
I attended a retreat recently with Father Michael Gaitley, and he kept telling us how Mary has been “on the move” quite a bit during the last few centuries. She must be on the move to prepare us for something, he stated.What is that something, What is she preparing us for? I think that what Mary has been preparing us for has arrived, and it is more horrendous than we ever could have imagined. It is an evil and wickedness that comes from the very Church and Clergy that should be our refuge, our protection, our hope. It is an evil that is more destructive to weak human souls than we could have anticipated, and it has been clothed and spread through our desensitization of what God’s natural law and Truth is, and fed by philosophies and theologies of relativism and individualism, with selfishness and apathy. We no longer yearn to learn our Faith, to worship within our community as we subscribe to notions such as “I’m spiritual, and not religious”.
Yes, we as a Church are in the midst of what Our Lady has been preparing us for. Is it coincidence that this crises, which is being described as the worst in 500 years is hitting just after the 100 year celebration and anniversary of Fatima? I don’t think so, and neither should you.
We need to rise up now more than ever, in prayer, in penance, and in sacrifice. We must honor and partake in the Sacraments, adoration, worship, and prayer like never before. We must pray without ceasing, and lead. We must demand that Truth reign in our home, communities, parishes, nation and the world. We must demand accountability! That is all that matters right now, that Truth reign. There are many souls in jeopardy and being held within the grasp and clutches of Satan. It is up to us to pray, fast, repent and offer sacrifices to save them and free our Church from the clutches of evil, we must rise up now, and pray, pray, pray. We have been placed on Earth for this moment. Rise up and fight! The gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church, lets make sure that the keepers of those gates are able to admit the least amount of souls as possible, that work is up to us, and with the aid and assistance of the Holy Spirit, very possible! Jesus doesn’t want to save the world without us, let’s rise up and work with Him and his Mother, to save His Church and ours, and to deliver as many souls as possible to Him as well.
