Repeat Posts from November of Last Year/Look at The Last Line

A Quiet Masterpiece

I have written about this book by Benson before as well-None Other Gods. As I wrote about it a long time ago, and have many new readers, I thought I would tie this book in with the perfection series.

Benson understood, and in my humble opinion, experienced the Illumination State, if not the Unitive. No one could have written with the insights he had without some experience.

This book is the clearest novel I have ever read about the three last stages of holiness-the Dark Night, the Illuminative, and the Unitive States.

The last time I wrote about this book, the Evil One who Hates was beginning his onslaught in Ireland. I had read this book for the first time in Ireland in the convent in the Winter of 2011, and was amazed at the similarities between St. Benedict Labre and the main character, Frank. Now, many people who have read this book have not  understood the way of perfection, and the last three stages of growth in holiness, therefore, missing the point.

The choices Frank makes are those contrary to the world, the flesh, and the devil. His choices reveal his desire for unity with God.

Please buy it, read it, pass it on. I think it is a quiet masterpiece. Also, if you want to understand supertradmum, you will after reading this book.

Coming to A Head

For years, and those who have read this blog know this, I have been recommending Robert Hugh Benson's Lord of the World. The recent Belgian bill on child euthanasia and some things happening in America make me believe that this prophetic book is coming to reality.

The book in on line here

I have given away copies of this in the past. I hope my friends read it.

It is one of the Pope's favorite books as the Holy Father mentioned recently.

Short of writing about the End Times, I do write that the Church is entering one of the darkest periods of persecution She has ever seen.

I see it in America. I saw it in Europe. Please read my notes on how to prepare for tribulation. Please read the perfection series.

You and I do not have much time.


No daily Mass in the closest parish to me. I cannot get to daily Mass.

No Adoration in most churches in this diocese.

The impoverishment of the Church, resulting in closings and the dilapidation of buildings.

The taking over of Catholic hospitals by the pro-death governments-see Ireland.

The hatred of children and mothers, something many of my friends experience almost daily.

The horrible scenes from Argentina, the Macy's parade shambles I linked here, the porn on EU tv.

The mindlessness of Americans, who simply do not see what is happening to undermine the Constitution, the freedoms of individuals and the Church.

The absolute blindness of Obama Catholics. 

The evils of lax and even seriously sinning clergy. Why is my pp in Las Vegas on vacation, one of the most evil cities in America?

Priests who refuse to do more than the bare minimum.

The political movements in the EU based on Marxism gaining ground.

The rise of "organized anarchy".

The communism behind the US government policies.

The use of military tactics by the police and the ignoring of the Constitutional rights of search-Boston after the bomb, for example.

The breaking down of the religious aspects of the military, separating duty from duty towards God first.

I appeal to the laity to become holy and accept all suffering as God honoring your prayers for holiness.

Those who are suffering now are being prepared for the worst.  BTW, Msgr. Benson pegged the German Church correctly in 1907.

And I add, the putting of homeless people in fema camps and recent developments regarding surveillance.
