Taking a short break
« on: October 27, 2019, 03:38:37 PM »
Considering that the Roman Catholic Church is getting closer to rock bottom at its crisis, and my own current opinions and contributions are infuriating people, I'm going to take a short break from this forum until we see what happens in regards to the Deaconess and the Married Priest question.

Pray for me as always, if you can find it in your heart to do so.

TRL,
 this is a good idea. My prayers also.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Yes, of course, I always will. God bless you, Live.
Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." https://marianapostolate.com/life-offering/ Please pray this daily and you and your family will be saved. You will avoid Purgatory.

Daily Morning Offering: O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary,  I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Jesus from all the Altars  throughout the world, joining with It the offering of my every thought, word, and action of this day. I desire to gain every Indulgence and Merit I can, offering them, together with myself, to Mary Immaculate, Whom Thou hast appointed the dispenser of the merits of Thy Precious Blood, especially by means of this Scapular  [Here kiss your Brown Scapular] that She may best apply them to the interests of Thy Most Sacred Heart. Amen.

Consecration to Our Blessed Mother: My Queen, my Mother! I give myself entirely to Thee, and to show my devotion to Thee I consecrate to Thee this day, my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve, Wherefore, good Mother, as I am Thine own, keep me, guard me, as Thy property and possession." http://www.catholictradition.org/Mary/morning-offering.htm

Of course (looking forward to TheReturn... etc. when it is the right time all around)
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

I will say that for many of us, The Crisis can be a downer, threatening to discourage us, even to the point of despair.  At the very least, it tests the faith of all practicing Catholics, and, when we are too engulfed in the crisis, it can bring us down spiritually.  Trad priests recommend not spending too much time investigating and thinking about all of the awful stuff happening in the Church's highest ranks, lest we lose heart.

So the point is that taking a break from the reality of Roman apostasy can be a good idea for everyone, so as not to distort our perspective and play directly into the devil's hands.

Faith was strained on the stormy seas.  Strained again as God died on the cross.  Strained further as He did not come back on the time scale expected.  Arians, Zosimus, Honorious, Saeculum obscurum, Medici popes, Great Schism & Protestant Revolt, the list goes on.

And now we have Fran Fran & his apostate / heretical bishops.  Rather than despair or lose your Faith through analysis paralysis, why not instead laugh at the demons that have a grip on these men?  Pray for the souls of those men but laugh in the face of the demons whom have deceived them.  Get angry about it, despair over it, doubt it all are a victory for the demons.  Laughing at them and seeing them for the joke that they are wounds their pride greatly while keeping ourselves detached from the destruction they have laid.

Hopefully soon we'll no longer have a Pope who makes Martin Luther seem a paragon of holy orthodoxy, and so my prayers for you. Pray for me.
