The following essay was first posted in 2015 and again in 2017. It’s worth revisiting and I offer it today in hopes you may find it of value. At the time I wrote it, in 2015, we had no idea how bad the Church’s situation would become under the usurpers so busily dismantling the Church, but the storm-clouds were definitely looming and several other traditional Catholics were also sharing their forebodings. I won’t name them here, as I am not worthy to link myself to them, but each of them is now gone and as is evident, I’m well past my own expiry date.
When I first read St. John Bosco’s prophecy, it impressed me with its coherence with the other prophecies for these times, especially those of the Apocalypse.
For so long now, the faith has suffered assault after assault, and still the awful humiliation and degradation of the Church continues unabated. And yet we know that this is the providence of our Dear Lord, who endures these sufferings to allow us the extra time for penance, and for the conversion of sinners.
Think a moment, aren’t you much more aware of Our Lady’s message than you were ten years ago? Don’t you know of people who have begun to awaken to the terrible crisis? We must remember that Our Lord is suffering far, far more than we are, and He is doing it, as He always does, for the salvation of souls. Let us not forsake Him now when He needs us so much, but renew our penances, prayers, fasts and alms so that many souls may be saved in the midst of this satanic onslaught.
Today we have a post from back before the last presidential election, but perhaps it may be worth a read today.
Slash and burn agriculture is the process of cutting down the vegetation in a particular plot of land, setting fire to the remaining foliage, and using the ashes to provide nutrients to the soil for the use of planting food crops.
Recently, a kind and gentle reader remarked, “it is not surprising that we see the ground being prepared, tilled so to speak, in order to receive the seed of the consecration.”
I’ve taken some time to consider this reader’s thoughtful comment and concluded that the ground may be prepared by a slightly different method.
In the slash and burn method, as detailed above, what is hindering the restoration of the faith and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the glut of arrogant, disobedient and indifferent catholics who now occupy the Church, as laity and above all, as consecrated leaders, who conspire against her and serve the lord of this world. By His usual effective methods, I believe that God will clear away the debris, and in these ashes, by the humility and obedience of the survivors, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Church will rise again. A chastened Pope will consecrate Russia, and a chastened Russia will welcome this.
