Is God Pleased . . . ?

Is God Pleased . . .?

This question was left open-ended for a reason, which hopefully will become very apparent. Someone has probably already asked, “Pleased about what?” Pay attention!

Let’s take a trip back in time to the year 1884. The reigning Pope at that time was His Holiness, Leo XIII. On October 17, after Mass Pope Leo had a vision of a conversation between Jesus and Satan. The conversation went like this:

The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: “I can destroy your Church.”

The gentle voice of Our Lord: “You can? Then go ahead and do so.”

Satan: “To do so, I need more time and more power.”

Our Lord: “How much time? How much power?

Satan: “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.”

Our Lord: “You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will.”

There has been speculation as to when the hundred years would begin. Some said right after the vision, or after the First World War. There have been events in history that people have said was that beginning. I have my own “theory” and that is what it is, to be accepted or left alone. Satan, the crafty creature that he is had plans for the destruction of Christ’s Church and knew it had to come off without a hitch, flawless in its execution. All the events from October 17, 1884 to the Miracle of the Sun were preparation, getting people into place. He can be very patient when need be. Satan is like the property manager of a big Broadway production. Everything must be in its place and the set changes and prop changes have to be executed at a precise time so that there are no gaps, flawless. By October 17, 1917, he had gotten all his chess pieces on the board where he wanted them. The clock begins to tick off the 100 years. Our Lady gave the warning to Sr. Lucia in 1929, “The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father, in union with all the bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart.” Satan had already begun his moves on the Church. The infiltration by Masons that worked their way up the chain and became part of the hierarchy of the Church. Modernism was creeping in at an alarming rate and we were warned by several Popes about this… and they all condemned it.

After Pope Leo’s vision he composed the Saint Michael Prayer, which we only say a small portion now. Thanks in no small part to Paul VI, who removed it from the Novus Ordo. It is a prayer meant to help and protect the Church and should be prayed everyday. But, a word of warning. This prayer is very irritating to Satan and he will retaliate by discovering your weakest point and cause you to sin over and over, making your days miserable. So be aware and on guard should you choose to say it. Be strong and hold on!

“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits. Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.

“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be.

“Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord; and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.
R. The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered the root of David.
V. Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.
R. As we have hoped in Thee.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray.

O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as supplicants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin Immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious St. Michael the Archangel, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of souls. Amen.”

Referring back to Fatima and the Third Secret, the world awaited anxiously for its release in 1960, when Our Lady said it had to be read or at the death of Sr. Lucia, which ever came first. Pope John XXIII said the Secret was not for his time and dismissed it. It was also ignored by Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and now Francis I.
John Paul II had this to say about The Third Secret, “Its content, concerns only our faith. To identify the Secret with catastrophic announcements or with a nuclear holocaust is to deform the meaning of the message. The loss of faith of a continent is worse than the annihilation of a nation; and it is true that faith is continually diminishing in Europe.” HELLO, the faith is diminishing everywhere, very quickly. John Paul’s advice was to pray, pray. All this is in accordance with Satan’s master plan for the destruction of the Church. My “theory”, we have less than two years before Our Lady lets loose of God’s arm and releases His chastisement upon this sinful world. That means October 17, 2017. Our Lady said nations would be annihilated if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. If that is part of the secret, then we have a right to know so we can prepare for the worst and prepare our souls for whatever comes. Sr. Lucia said on April 7.1990, “The events taking place in Europe are a deception. Russia will be the scourge for all nations, because it was not converted. Russia attacks the West, and China invades in Asia.” The popes fiddle and Obama keeps poking the bear.

Satan’s plan is in place and working. Vatican II was an escalation of his plans in an attempt to uproot the true Church. Many are falling, as if drugged, for the touchy, feely Novus Ordo Mess. Many souls are being lost. Since the calling of Vatican II, everything is going downhill. The Church is caught in a mudslide carrying everything in it’s wake and few seem to realize it’s even happening. It’s as though the hierarchy in the church is giving out placebos and all those that take them see no fault. They seem happy as can be, because no one has to convert, pray, or receive the sacraments. This is the attitude of the thumbs up, smiley face of Rome. No one will bite down on the pill to discover it’s only sugar. They are being duped and love it!

Vatican II, brought about the new rite called the Novus Ordo. This action was condemned by the Council of Trent.

Session XXII
CANON III.–If any one saith, that the sacrifice of the mass is only a sacrifice of praise and of thanksgiving; or, that it is a bare commemoration of the sacrifice consummated on the cross, but not a propitiatory sacrifice; or, that it profits him only who receives; and that it ought not to be offered for the living and the dead for sins, pains, satisfactions, and other necessities; let him be anathema.

CANON VI.–If any one saith, that the canon of the mass contains errors, and is therefore to be abrogated; let him be anathema.

CANON IX.–If any one saith, that the rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the canon and the words of consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; or, that the mass ought to be celebrated in the vulgar tongue only; or, that water ought not to be mixed with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice, for that it is contrary to the institution of Christ; let him be anathema.

Session VII
CANON IV.-If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification;-though all (the sacraments) are not indeed necessary for every individual; let him be anathema.

CANON XI.-If any one saith, that, in ministers, when they effect, and confer the sacraments, there is not required the intention at least of doing what the Church does; let him be anathema.

CANON XIII.-If any one saith, that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by every pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema.

SECOND DECREE
CHAPTER I.
The Canons relative to the life, and propriety of conduct of Clerics are renewed.
Wherefore clerics called to have the Lord for their portion, ought by all means so to regulate their whole life and conversation, as that in their dress, comportment, gait, discourse, and all things else, nothing appear but what is grave, regulated, and replete with religiousness; avoiding even slight faults, which in them would be most grievous; that so their actions may impress all with veneration. Whereas, therefore, the more useful and decorous these things are for the Church of God, the more carefully also are they to be attended to; the holy Synod ordains, that those things which have been heretofore copiously and wholesomely enacted by sovereign pontiffs and sacred councils,–relative to the life, propriety of conduct, dress, and learning of clerics, and also touching the luxuriousness, feastings, dances, gambling, sports, and all sorts of crime whatever, as also the secular employments, to be by them shunned,–the same shall be henceforth observed, under the same penalties, or greater, to be imposed at the discretion of the Ordinary; nor shall any appeal suspend the execution hereof, as relating to the correction of manners.

Important parts are underlined to emphasis some of the changes that have taken place in this new rite. These are only some of things that are wrong with this “new order”. We have heard recently that the Church is “the Church of the New Advent”. What was wrong with the first Advent and what are we waiting for now. Likewise, the Church is called “the New Pentecost”. Again, what was wrong with the first Pentecost. This is not the church that Jesus Christ established. This is not the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
Please read the Quo Primum Tempore of Pope Saint Pius V, click here
(There will be more about the Novus Ordo in a subsequent article regarding the The Ottaviani Intervention)
There are no longer altars, but tables, complete with a tablecloth and a couple of plastic tubes filled with liquid wax. Vestments in some cases look like over-sized Hawaiian moo-moos. Girls that are supposed to be “altar boys”? This is all wrong, wrong, wrong! Out of pity and sadness for his soul, the reigning Pope cannot seem to speak Catholic. It’s simply not in his vocabulary. He appears to use the modernist trickery to word things in such a way as to avoid the clear charge, “you are a heretic”. Yet what he utters borders on heresy. Those who want to hold on to the true Faith are called names and belittled. How can he be called Father?

It’s becoming increasingly painful to even continue and so this will be brought to an end. The question, Is God pleased? . . .doesn’t need anything added to it. The answer seems simple, NO!
We have a choice – follow Christ or follow man. I’ve made my choice.

    I don’t have the authority to say whether that baptism was legit or not, especially since we don’t know what was in the heart of the parents at the time. But it may have been done out of spite. The world is only going to get worse, so hang on to your hat and stay close to Jesus. Go to the Latin Mass faithfully and take your Godchild with you. Be ready for the chastisement (Three Days of Darkness), don’t take France’s word on anything. Be a true CATHOLIC!!

  2. E James says:

    Hi. The one Baptized was a baby at the time. The one doing the Baptism was an adult and mail order/internet minister(no seminary or theology studies) or in my mind a self proclaimed minister. Neither parent is Catholic. Only one parent was present and kinda sounds like a vengeance thing so the mother couldn’t have a Baptism. What a nice corrupt world we live in. I’m curious because we only get one Baptism.

  3. admin says:

    There are a multitude of considerations to be looked at in regard to a lay person performing a baptism. The first two questions that would come to my mind are these: Is the person to be baptized an adult or a child younger than the age of reason? Secondly, is the person in danger of immediate death? We can’t just willy-nilly go around baptizing people. The individual to be baptized must be fully aware of what they are asking and have a firm purpose of living a truly Catholic life according to the dogmas and doctrines handed down by Christ and the Apostles. I don’t know all that is involved, but these two alone are a very good place to start. Hope this is helpful.

  4. E James says:

    Hi. I’d like your opinion on Baptism and the necessary elements for it to be recognized. The main area is in the area of a lay person doing the Baptizing. Thank You for your time.

  5. admin says:

    I believe that all Mason’s are aware of the “Master Plan”. It’s their purpose in life to bring down and destroy the Roman Catholic Church. Masons and Communists walk hand-in-hand, even though Communists may out-rightly say they do not believe in God; Masons believe in a “god” and that god is MAN. Someone would have to be very dense not to understand what the Masons are all about if they enter into that demonic cult and hear what they have to say. It’s very possible that a lot of information was withheld from you on the interviews you conducted. Find out from your Library if you can get a copy of the book “Paul VI . . .beatified?” This will explain a lot and you will see why the Church is in the mess that it is at this time. The book contains several quotes from the Mason higher-ups. I will send you another book to read that was never publish to hard copy, so it is a PDF. This will also give an eyeopener to the current situation. Hold on to your hat, things are going to get worse. May God bless you.

  6. E James says:

    I didn’t explore the Scottish rite and the high degrees. It was more the layman area including speaking with many who are masons. Maybe they aren’t privy to the master plan of the ones in power. All who I spoke with were Christians, but none Catholic. As for just being Communists. Communists do not believe in God. Masons are required to profess a belief in God. Also the King James version was being used in their ceremonies at that time. Maybe the lay masons are similar to the soldiers in Vietnam…lied to, brainwashed and pawns of the corrupt power. I do believe there is a NWO that it is rumored saturated with high level masons. Our Catholic Faith would be a hindrance to what they want to accomplish.

  7. admin says:

    Sorry for taking so long to reply to your comment. I could give you a litany of excuses, but I won’t bore you with that.

    If you wrote a paper on Freemasonry, then you should know what their whole plan is especially in regard to the Catholic Church. Its complete and total destruction and to rid the world of all Christians whether they are Catholic or not. You should also know that Communism is just another name for the Freemasons. The Zionist Jews hate us the worst of all. There is a book you might look for at the library, it is titled, AA 1025. It will give you a real good idea of how the Church became infiltrated with Masons. The book is supposed to be fiction, but it reads more like fact. Pretty soon we are going to have a global “French Revolution” and it’s going to get bloody. Catholics are being lulled into submission by the Novus Ordo Mess. The Novus Ordo Church and the New World Order are part and parcel. I don’t know how to get peoples attention. Well, we’ll just have see who survives.

    Thank you for the Mother’s Day greeting. It was a very quiet day and I didn’t have to cook.

  8. E James says:

    Greetings and hope you had a wonderful Mother’ Day. And now to the old misconceptions. I thought everyone in your area knew how to fish & hunt stuff, live off the land, drove pick up trucks, made bread from scratch, burnt wood and had an accent like Swen… lol Well maybe I got half right 😀

    I did a term paper in college way back when on the masons. Since then and after they kinda have their hands full due to their numbers dwindling badly. I don’t know about the 32 and 33 degree ones, but the local lodges have closed due to lack of members. I would guess the high levels(which the degrees are mainly bought) are probably alive and well. I’d always heard that Catholics are forbidden from being in the masons due to it’s nature of being secretive.

    On Mother’ Day a local parish had a free breakfast for anyone who wanted to come and was paid for by funds from that local parish. Am I wrong in feeling why am I giving to them when they are using the money to pay for breakfast for people who make far more than I do? I don’t mind giving to operate the parish, assist the needy and things like that, but I do have issues when they are using it for their own pleasurable pastimes. Is this just another example of how far the ‘modern’ Catholic Church has gotten off track?

    Forever in Our Most Sorrowful Mother who must be shedding more tears than ever before over how little we learn from Her Son

  9. admin says:

    First, you must understand that modernists (Masons) have taken over the Church. They have infiltrated and worked their way up and now hold positions in the hierarchy. They are trying and succeeding in their minds to turn the Church into the “church of man.” But they forget that the CHURCH IS CHRIST and He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, and, the gates of hell will not prevail against her. With them, it’s all about me, myself and I. God has no place in their church. The doing away with the dress code is just one of the many abuses that have been allowed over the years. The words coming out of the mouths of the pope, cardinals, bishops and priests nowadays are all demonic. Not all, but a vast majority of them. They twist the teachings of the Church to meet their agenda – to destroy it. That’s why CATHOLICS need to remain strong in their faith and not bending like reeds in the wind to all the false teachings. We are not traditionalists, WE ARE CATHOLICS, period. They can come up with all kinds of names for us, but the fact remains, we are CATHOLICS and THEY ARE NOT!

    PS I don’t know a mushroom from a toadstool.

  10. E James says:

    I’m just starting to again glance at articles on Vatican II. Some things I see are specifically connected to Vatican II and some I doubt, but do not know for sure. It was addressed as far as changing from being ‘passive’ to more involved. This I do not understand. What was ‘passive’ about full attention being on our Lord? Today I do not talk to others at Mass(except for greeting). My focus is on our Lord, giving thanks and praise and asking for help staying on a path that is pleasing to our Lord. Maybe some would view me as ‘passive’. I feel I’m doing what I should be doing with my attention where it should be. I’m saddened as people chat with others during Mass.
    Did Vatican II address annulments. Did they change the elements of Holy Matrimony? It’s pretty obvious since at least as far back as 1970 that upon request they are determined to be lacking in validity and the people can move onto their next marriage. Maybe new Vows are in order that say “for better or worse and until a annulment is requested”.
    Did Vatican II elevate Man to a higher level? Man apparently is above the humble status of before and no longer is expected to kneel before our Lord. Man also now has clean hands worthy of receiving our Lord.
    Did Vatican II address Holy Days? Catholic is supposedly universal and yet each country appears to decide which days will be Holy Days and which ones not. Why doesn’t the Pope say these are the Holy Days and all will respect and honor them.
    I think you addressed it before that Vatican II did not change the dress(cover) code. Who did decide that now clothing that can’t be worn to school can be worn to Mass?
    I do view Vatican II as being the birth of the death and responsible for ‘opening the windows’ that allowed the evil to enter. Thus creating the environment of ‘watering’ down our Catholic Faith to being more of a feel good Church than a solemn Church.

    weather has gotten warm and nice enough and have started planting a few simply things. still not good weather for mushroom hunting soooo 😀 & 🙁 lol

  11. admin says:

    The answer to your first question is yes. You answered the question yourself. We must be careful not to focus on this “theory”, which has been bandied about for some years. We need to focus on our daily lives trying to live according to God’s holy will, that we may be ready for when the “thief comes in the night,” not knowing the day or the hour. We need to focus on prayer and receiving the sacraments. Our prayers should be prayers for conversions, reparation, the Holy Souls (who will in turn pray for us the foolish souls that we are), the focus point is God and God alone. We need to pray for all those that cling to the church of Vatican II, that their eyes be opened to the destruction it is causing. My memory fails me, but there’s a quote that goes like this, “The Church will appear dead.” It certainly appears that the Catholic Church is in its death-throws. Pray, pray and pray some more. Live a holy life and you will be prepared for the day whenever it might be.

    In case your library doesn’t have the books I mentioned before and would like to purchase a copy to have on hand all the time, click on either title: Catechism of Pius X or The Catechism of the Council of Trent.

    It was over 70 here yesterday! Hope you are getting some of this.

    Are wars the punishment for sin or is sin the cause of war? The lust for power or wealth and seems like more war going on now than ever before. I’m sure it will end, but it won’t be man ending it and only a matter of how long before it happens.
    I’m sure there are some that would say you’re a loony tune. If they agree with you then they have to face it and something must be done meaning altering their self pleasing life styles. Same problem in our Catholic Faith. People know their is something wrong with their approach to Mass. They don’t admit it because then they have to deal with it and change. The Novus Ordo is easier and more convenient for them. More of a social hour and less expectations placed on them. Of course the rewards will be far less.
    Actually I haven’t, but it’s because I got tired of you flinging snow down at me. Since(singing) I have friends in warm places…..I kinda left the cold for a while and just got back a couple weeks ago. Yes maybe I’m a wimp, but I stayed a warm wimp. lol
    Thanks on the reading material. I’ll find a copy of one or the other. I would think the library would have copies of each. Also it’s warm and supposed to rain so maybe it’ll be mushroom time. Have you ever looked for them?

    JM+JT

  13. admin says:

    Yes, there have been episodes in the past and some happening now as
    chastisement for the many sins being committed every day. Our Lady of Fatima
    told the seers that war is a punishment for sins. Look at all the terrible
    weather, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes,  look at Ferguson and Baltimore
    right now. Sin is running rampant. Islamic forces are butchering Christians
    thousand at a time in some places. All these things are not rewards for our good
    behavior.

    I suppose there are some who might read the article and say I am just a
    looney-tune, but I know the closer we get to that date the more I am going to be
    prepared for God to finally say enough is enough (Three Days of Darkness). If
    Obama doesn’t stop poking the bear (Russia), all hell may break loose before
    then and millions will die and nations will be annihilated as Our Lady said.
    Either way, it’s not going to be pretty.

    Hopefully, you are attending the Latin Mass every Sunday. The Novus Ordo is
    not the Catholic Mass. We cannot believe much of anything coming out of Rome
    these days and so we are on our own to look to the Apostles and Doctors of the
    Church for guidance. The truth is always there. If you can find a copy of the
    Catechism of the Council of Trent and/or the Catechism of Pius X, you will get a
    very good understanding of what the Church teaches and how far off base the
    Vatican II Church of the "new advent" is from being Catholic. Rome is only
    offering lies and deceit topped with heresy. Show and teach your godchild the
    truth about being Catholic.

    P.S. The weather is getting warmer and the sun has been shinning.

  14. E James says:

    Thank you ever so much for the Novena. My Faith and conduct remains strong to continue in a way that I hope is pleasing to our Lord.
    There have been many times in history that I’m sure are similar to now in that things have spiraled so far out of control in the direction of the evil side that others have felt that the end times must be near. This is the area where I don’t see the hope of things being altered and feel that October 17th is a realistic date.
    Today I saw a Yahoo headline news about how Christians are leaving the Faith in droves. This doesn’t surprise me considering how so many Christian faith systems are gravitating to the “feel good” worship. I’m of the perspective that I don’t go to Mass to be pleased. I’m there to give Thanks & Praise to please God. I’m there to learn and be reminded how to be on a path that is pleasing to God. Through pleasing God I will find worthy satisfaction. Over the last few decades so many Faiths have turned towards how they can make it more fun appearing to think that if they make it more fun then more will come. It’s not surprising that those new members quickly left again. I don’t look for Mass to be “fun”. I’m at the Foot of the Cross to show reverence and submission to our Lord. That it is my sole hope to please Him. To tell Him how sorry I am when I’ve done things that I know are not pleasing to Him. Through this I will find peace. I hope this makes sense.
    Has society spiraled into decay so far that October 17th is a very realistic time? I think mankind in it’s arrogance and do whatever is pleasing without regard for any type of morality system has pushed things past the point of no return.
    When will God say enough is enough? When respect for the sanctity of life is gone? When abortions are viewed similar to getting rid of a wart? When invasions for wealth and power are just accepted? When the majority of people view a belief in God as superstitious nonsense or going to Church is just a waste of time that could be utilized doing something more “fun”? Just my opinion, but I think we’re there.
    I’ll continue to pray and my hope is that I’m wrong. That maybe my Godchild will have a chance to be a part of changing things, but I still feel it’s went too far.

    May you have some warm weather and able to have time to reflect on the beautiful world our Lord has created.

    My article was not meant to cause people to think there is
    no hope, but to get their heads out of the dark places and pray; to see what is happening to the Church and the world around them. Prayer is our greatest weapon, especially the Rosary. Don’t ever give up hope! In fact here is a Novena to Our Lady of Holy Hope. It is a powerful prayer. I hope my theory is wrong, but I just can’t rule it out at this point. Learn about the Three Days of Darkness and be prepared. Here is the Novena:

    Begin Novena
    (Say for nine consecutive days)

    O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Grace, Hope of the world.
    Hear us, your children, who cry to you

    Let Us Pray
    O God, Who by the marvelous protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary has strengthened us firmly in hope, grant we beseech You, that by persevering in prayer at her admonition, we may obtain the favors we devoutly implore. Through Christ Our Lord.
    Amen

    Prayer to Our Lady of Hope
    O Mary, my Mother, I kneel before you with heavy heart. The burden of my sins oppresses me. The knowledge of my weakness discourages me. I am beset by fears and temptations of every sort. Yet I am so attached to the things of this world that instead of longing for Heaven I am filled with dread at the thought of death. O Mother of Mercy, have pity on me in my distress. You are all-powerful with your Divine Son. He can refuse no request of your Immaculate Heart. Show yourself a true Mother to me by being my advocate before His throne.
    O Refuge of Sinners and Hope of the Hopeless, to whom shall I turn if not you?

    Obtain for me, then, O Mother of Hope, the grace of true sorrow for my sins, the gift of perfect resignation to God’s Holy Will, and the courage to take up my cross and follow Jesus. Beg of His Sacred Heart the special favor that I ask in this novena.

    (Make your request.)

    But above all I pray, O dearest Mother, that through your most powerful intercession my heart may be filled with Holy Hope, so that in life’s darkest hour I may never fail to trust in God my Savior, but by walking in the way of His commandments I may merit to be united with Him, and with you in the eternal joys of Heaven. Amen.

    Mary, our Hope, have pity on us.
    Hope of the Hopeless, pray for us.

    Say three (3) Hail Marys

    Hmmmm “sorry bout the snow” while smirking….. lol I do need some warm weather so I can go mushroom hunting 😀
    October 17th, 2017 I’ve always wondered how bad it has to get before enough is enough and the things have went so far that hope is no longer realistic. Reading your article and looking at the world and the different societies your “theory” certainly is possible. I’m not sure hope is realistic anymore and that brings great sadness. I normally get reinforcement of ideas and sound directions from your articles and dialogue that helps with hope. Now you give me Oct 17th, 2017. Has the selfishness, lust for money and wanton disregard for morality reached the point of no return? Has the sex obsessed world gone too far? Regular station television is without value and no idea what parents do as far as the children(certainly not anything I’d let kids watch). Corporate and government continue to push people to spend what they don’t have where savings are at the lowest point they have ever been. Faith systems seem to be just going towards being more liberal and to please the individual=yet their numbers continue to decline. I can see why the Fundamentalists around the world fight back against Westernization which is filled with greed and sex.
    Well it’s late and time for sleep. I do hope that I’ll still be around to see if your theory is right. Not sure at the moment if I’ll hope you are right or not.

    Praying that our Lord watches over and comforts you.

    You are beginning to see and gain some understanding as to what has happened and continues to happen. The whole plan is to bring down the Church from the inside out and the top down. This is Satan’s diabolical disorientation. Jesus has asked if there will be any faith left when He returns? Those that remain faithful to Him might survive the chastisement and they will be few. So hang in there and be true to the true Catholic Church, not to the spirit of Vat II.

    As I’ve made my choice also. As I mentioned to you my Easter Mass was celebrated by being in what might be called an overflow room. It wasn’t even the ‘main’ Mass(10:30am is the main) and so many there. The room contained fold up chairs and a tile floor with maybe 200 people there. I first noticed how few were willing to kneel on the tile floor. Four at the start and maybe 20 at the most during Mass. Are we so entitled now that not willing to endure a little discomfort when praying at the Foot of the Cross?
    The flood waters have rushed in and washing out so much. The few rocks trying to hold back the water have gotten old and being washed away. The young do not seem to care that so much has been washed away already. Soon I think it won’t look like a Catholic Church anymore. The young haven’t experienced how it should be and how it is is their norm. A friend went to a Methodist Church and they are expected to kneel for Communion if they are able. Many golf courses have a stricter dress code. What some wear to Mass couldn’t be worn on a some golf courses and the young don’t seem to realize that something is missing. How long before all will be washed away and our Catholic Church will be just another feel good church only there to please the people? Will any wake up and realize we are not at Mass to please ourselves, but to please God?
    May our Lord always comfort and protect you. JM+JT
