Everything has a got a moral if you can only find it. Lewis Caroll
I don't remember my fall through the rabbit hole, but surely there was one. The only other explanation is that I have actually gone mad. Things are not what they seem and every thing is topsy-turvy. On the surface, it just seems that our society keeps progressing in such fashion that demarcation lines are blurred and all things are tolerated. My traditional Catholic sensibilities, however, assure me eventually our stay in Wonderland will come to a terrible, yet glorious, end. Nonsense, you may say. Well let's have a look.
As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the Union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and profaned in the fullest sense of the word. Our Lady of Good Success
Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objection of doing away with this Sacrament (Matrimony), making it easy for everyone to live in sin, encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church. Our Lady of Good Success
The Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed, and despised. The demon will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way...., corrupting many of them. These corrupted priests will scandalize the Christian people, will incite the hatred of the bad Christians, and the enemies of the Roman, Catholic, and Apostolic Church to fall upon the priests. Our Lady of Good Success
Civil governments will all have the same objective, which will be to abolish and make every religious principle disappear, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritism, and vices of all kinds. Our Lady of La Salette
There is an unrelenting, ongoing attack on Catholicism in the country and around the world. It was first seen in the 50s and 60s when there were campaigns to rid prayer from the public schools. Every so often there is an article about removing the Crucifix from Catholic universities and hospitals because they "offend" non-Christians. Americans spend more money celebrating the macabre of Halloween than decorating for Christmas. Each year there is increasing effort to secularize Christmas even more, placing more emphasis on Santa Claus, "Holiday" shopping, and winter vacations. Our public school system has gone from worshiping Our Lord by closing on Good Friday to worshiping Martin Luther King, Jr., a man of questionable moral character and motives. The atheists and non-Christians love a party but hate the One True Faith, so they have replaced St. Valentine's Day with Happy Hearts Day and St. Patrick's Day with Shamrock Day. What in the world will they do when they realize that shamrock represents The Blessed Trinity?
Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist. Our Lady of La Salette
And lest anyone be confused, there are abuses that go one at Catholic Masses around the globe. There are Clown Masses, Polka Masses, "Gay" Masses, and Puppet Masses. Masses with native dancers, modern dancers, mariachi bands, and trapeze artists. It is a complete and total mockery of Our Lord Jesus Christ and very little, if anything, is done to stop this problem. Rather, when traditional Catholics complain or demand due reverence, they are ostracized, ridiculed, and made to feel like outcasts.
We are living in very difficult times, indeed. In words taken from my mother, the whole world has gone crazy. It has indeed. The devil is running loose and wreaking havoc---but only for a time. Our Blessed Mother has continued to warn us that if we do not return to Our Lord, we will be punished. But She also has promised us that, in the end, Her Immaculate Heart will triumph.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
