Speaking in somewhat apocalyptic tones," wrote Allen, "the pope warned: 'The judgment announced by the Lord Jesus referred above all to the destruction of Jerusalem in the year 70. But the threat of judgment also regards us, the church of Europe, Europe and the West in general.'"
The excerpt from the Pope's homily used by Allen is not taken out of context to exaggerate. In fact, the sentence following the excerpt used by Allen reads, "With this Gospel, the Lord is also crying out to our ears the words that in the Book of Revelation he addresses to the Church of Ephesus: 'If you do not repent I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place' (2: 5). Light can also be taken away from us and we do well to let this warning ring out with its full seriousness in our hearts." (see the full homily here http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/hom... )
Further Pope John Paul II, two years prior to his elevation to the papacy gave an address in the United States wherein he stated, "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church . . . must take up."
The original plan of salvation was - the apostles were to set the path straight so that we'd all know the difference.
There was never any directive to send Noah into the community to appoint the anti-Church people as leaders of his Ark.
There is no Gospel of Judas. His apostles, who hand over the Body of Christ, the people in the pews to theologians and priests and laity who teach the antichurch..and do it in a spirit which they call "love" - - is no different from the betrayal in Gethsemene...when Christ's mortal Body handed over with a kiss to save thine own backside form the Herod and the Romans who were assembling to kill them all.
I have absolutely no respect nor patience for it...nor should I (or any one of us).
The blindness of the spiritual depth of field by the apostles is staggering.
No need for Walter and his antichurch to repent of their refusals to repent, they imply. The public spin was, and continues to be, the scuffles are about the mishandling of money - his dissent is not dissent. It's Roman Catholic...according to the publicity stunts operated out of the office of communications in Boston.
In his thought provoking piece, O'Brien says beyond the fact that the end - death - will certainly come for each individual and we must thus be spiritually prepared, "At some point in history, however, a generation is going to go through the final stage of the apocalypse, yet to them it will appear to be a normal world."
As Christ said - "like in the days of Noah..."
I was speaking recently to a secular journalist..who via the conversation we were having began to understand that bloggers and those of us phrophetically resounding the words that show the people which actions are sinful - and prod them to repent....are doing the job of the Bishops.
He asked me what it was like to do the Bishops' job.
I told him...how we are treated not only by the poor people who have been brainwashed by Walter's antichurch - - but also by our own Chancery employees...the USCCB...by the Bishops themselves...
...it isn't pretty.
...it was never meant to be pretty....that's why they don't do it.
They are craven - and their lack of humility leads them to believe they have a better strategy than God Himself (to pretend the antichurch is authentic and let the antichrist lead their people...all nice like, as in this is "charity").
It's author - is the father of lies.
"If at the same time, man's ability to exercise his healthy critical and analytical faculties has been limited by corrupt education, by media indoctrination, and by a generalized loss of the sense of human identity, the new world order can be achieved-and achieved most effectively, it should be noted, to the degree that it is understood as a 'moral' cause, a great leap forward in the name of humanity."
Don't kid yourselves...people like John Allen and Joe Feurhard and Joan Chisster....and their lobbyists working for the antichurch, the antichrist - - operating their shtick under the Crucifix of Christ are leading TO temptation and perdition is the hardest thing to watch...but watch we will....because this fight is ordained by Christ...one soul at a time we can pull from their mouths...and that's it.
We don't overthrow the government and become enthroned.
Never have, never will.
It's a small group following the Holy Father up that hill in the vision of St. Paul...described in Revelation...and at Fatima...which our precious Pope John Paul II was devoted to....
Have a great holy day of obligation...the sun is finally shining here in Boston....
