The Fever of Blogging-Roman Fever

Some of you may want to know why I am blogging so much. I know all the blogging days for faithful, traditional Catholics, those of us who write on the real teachings of the Church, are numbered.

I am writing as much as I can while freedom reigns. The Pope may not be the only one who resigns "soon." Many of us will be worn down and tired. This seems inevitable for some. Some of us will be asked not to blog. Some of us will face legislature on blogging.

Please copy some of my posts, as you can use these for home schooling or for reflection later. There are laws on paper ready to be passed that would restrict some topics on blogs and the Net. This laws are both in some of the States and in Europe. Missouri has had one introduced already. This is a fact, not rumour.

I am not into conspiracy theories or anything but facts and research. I shall never be irresponsible in what I post.

However, there many be things which will be disturbing and I shall only post what is for the readers' immediate needs.

We are entering into new times for the persecution of the Church. There may be schisms-this is not a new idea and one which many of us who have lived in America has seen coming for decades. The heresy of Americanism, that is, that Rome does not understand the American experience, is alive and well among many bishops. But, the American situation is repeated in Europe and other continents.

I grew up in this atmosphere of disobedience and cynicism in my diocese, which has one of the highest pay-outs for sexual abuse by priests. There is, of course, a connection, between disobedience in liturgy and disobedience in other areas, moral areas.

Priest who do not teach certain moral truths which are part of the Teaching Magisterium will become more strident.

If you disagree with the Teachings of the Church, repent, change, now. If you are attending banned prayer meetings, stop. Your immortal souls are in danger.

If you are in groups which do not have a connection to dioceses or do not have chaplains appointed by dioceses, stop going. Your immortal souls are in danger.

If you are reading private revelations already either condemned or cautioned by Rome, stop. Your immortal souls are in danger.

Pay attention, pray and most importantly, get into an orthodox group of people or create one in your area asap. Do not be isolated. You will regret this isolation. If you are a younger family, adopt an older person to care for and watch over.

You will need support in the days to come.

Those who deny this are either absolutely naive, or do not care if this happens, or worse, on the wrong side of Truth.

Sadly, families will be divided.

We do not need private revelation to teach us the signs of the times. We only need to be rational and intelligent. We need to know the real teaching of the Church. We need to study and pray and reflect.

Look to Rome and pay attention.

St. Catherine of Siena and St. Bernard of Clairvaux, pray for us.

From today's Mass readings:

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 

Moses said to the people: ‘The Lord your God today commands you to observe these laws and customs; you must keep and observe them with all your heart and with all your soul.
  ‘You have today made this declaration about the Lord: that he will be your God, but only if you follow his ways, keep his statutes, his commandments, his ordinances, and listen to his voice. And the Lord has today made this declaration about you: that you will be his very own people as he promised you, but only if you keep all his commandments; then for praise and renown and honour he will set you high above all the nations he has made, and you will be a people consecrated to the Lord, as he promised.’

And why I am doing the perfection series...........

Matthew 5:43-48 

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You have learnt how it was said: You must love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say this to you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; in this way you will be sons of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on bad men as well as good, and his rain to fall on honest and dishonest men alike. For if you love those who love you, what right have you to claim any credit? Even the tax collectors do as much, do they not? And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional? Even the pagans do as much, do they not? You must therefore be perfect just as your heavenly Father is perfect.’
