“Going, going…and just about gone”

The Progressives, (fancy word for Socialists), Socialists, (fancy word for Communists), are clear-cut winners, or at least presently winning, in their effort to de-Christianize Christianity in American society--and throughout the world. See our October 2011 blog: “Skunked Again” showing the plans laid out by the Masons/Communists to accomplish this end.

While we slept, here’s what happened…

Prayers in many schools have been abolished; praying grace before meals in certain school cafeterias have been forbidden; a Federal Court ordered Crucifixes removed from a Catholic hospital to avoid “offending” Muslims; California passed a bill allowing 12 year olds to get HPV tests without parental permission; homosexuals, in defiance to Biblical teachings (and common sense), can now be married in 21 states; Murderous abortions are performed by the millions in the United States--and countless millions throughout the world; Medicaid, using our tax dollars, pays for late term abortions.

The Catholic Church, robust prior to Vatican II, is no longer robust. Holy Mass attendance is less than a third of what it was. Sacred items (Crucifixes, statues of Saints, Tabernacles, etc.) have been removed, replaced or destroyed. Catholic schools remain Catholic in name only and are rapidly closing. Priests and nuns have dwindled and are not being replaced with new religionists. And our Catholic politicians, including our “Catholic” Vice President of the United States, support abortion on demand.

The list of abuses and the purging of Christianity goes on and on. And, guess what?  We haven’t seen anything yet.  It will continue and get worse unless there’s some kind of astonishing breakthrough we don’t know about, or until a miracle intervenes. 

So, where do we go from here?  We need to take heed from the following Biblical passages. When Jesus said: “…unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you.” (John 6: 54) And: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me.” (John 14: 6). Upon hearing this, many of Jesus’ disciples said: “This is a hard saying. Who can listen to it?” (John 6:61).  “From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him.”  (John 6: 67).

When Jesus said to the twelve Apostles: “Do you wish to go away?” Peter responded:  “Lord, to whom shall we go?” (John 6: 69).

So, when we see Christianity being de-Christianized all around us, we should follow in Peter’s footsteps and say to our Lord:  “Lord, to who else is there for us to turn to?”

When Christianity is under attack, whether it be by Masons, Communists, Protestantism or within the Vatican II Church itself by it’s schism, we should heed these concluding words spoken in the Prophesy of St. Francis of Assisi:  “…then there will be such universal dissentions and persecutions that if those days were not shortened even the elect would be lost.” Then we should strive to be the elect spoken of by St. Francis to weather the storm that’s coming.

It may be discouraging to witness the deterioration of our Christianity as it’s happening today. However, it’s also encouraging to know that God’s one true Church, the Church He Himself established--the Catholic Church, will always be here for us. This promise was set-in-stone by Jesus Himself and heartened to us by one of the greatest of Saints, St Athanasius, when he said: “…even if Catholics faithful to tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”

So, keep the Faith, pray the Rosary and wear the Brown Scapular.
