The Catholic, Apostolic Priesthood and who will judge them
From Matthew Chapter 16, one can say God Himself showed that Simon Bar Jonah was acceptable to be the plenipotentiary, the Shalliach for Christ. Just as in the Old Testament Abraham sent his followers (Shalliachs) to negotiate on his behalf in finding Isaac a wife (Spouse). I believe therefore it would not be wrong to think God, who will judge His Son, Himself, as Christ told us, "I will answer to the Father for every soul I have lost", will judge Apostles and priests the alter egos of Christ by Church teachings. You will answer to God through Christ who will stand you amongst the souls you have lost. They will be the mute witnesses to your demise. You will be asked, "Were you ever a priest for Me?" Examine your consciences now before Christ helps you with His questions.
The Passion of the Mystical Body
I truly believe as I have posted before, Vat.2 was the start of the separation of the sheep from the goats. If you cannot see for example the separation of the Pentecostals from the Motherhood of the Church then you need what they lack Grace. Let me explain why. In the book Catholic Pentecostals they wrote they were bored with the mass. As grace is present on the altar in the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and they do not recognize Him and are bored with Him, then I suggest they lack grace.An early Father wrote grace knows grace.
I find and believe myself as I have written that for various reasons many masses are not sanctified and therefore unacceptable to God. After all look what He did to the Jews when He finally answered their morbid offerings when the gave him their lame cattle, their one horned rams and blind flightless doves. Many of us today make of ourselves a sacrifice to Him of dead souls, of minds imperfectly contrite. "Never mind", we say, "He loves us unconditionally". Tell me what do you find the most terrifying words in Scriptures? For me it was when Christ said to a man who dearly loved Him and who was loved deeply in return. Who was a dear favorite, the Apostle Peter. Remember these words and hope you never hear them. Jesus said to Peter, "Get out of my sight".
Getting back to the mass, understand this well, the Mystical Body of Christ is entering into the final stages of the Mystical Passion of Christ. We are at the stage where the apostles have abandoned Him (the Eucharist) and have ran away. They watch unshriven sinners take the Body and Blood into hands dirtied by sin and minds lame with a lack of belief and reverence for what they are receiving and say nothing. The next stage in this Passion is near. The time will come when we realize the Holy Spirit has left us due to our corporate rejection and we will be forced to cry out, "My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me???"
