Continuation of Private and Public Revelations
It is astounding and if I had not experienced it so many times, it would have been devastating. I mean how many who read these blogs or any blogs at all, see only what they thought they saw. Long on ego and short on the words they read, these defenders of errors are very condemning. They are the same people who cry out, “You are not to judge”. The question never asked or rarely today is, “Is this the Truth, is this the behavior I see in the church today?” I can say the laity in the main, when they are taught what the Church directs, are far more obedient than the hierarchs and priests. One only has to study the directives of the Congregation for the Defence of the Faith, and the other Congregations, to attend the Novus Ordo and try to confess one’s sins, to see the truth in these words. One can see , unless they are in a state of denial that priests are petty dictators in their parishes and spin the reasons why they issue commands as they change the liturgies and rites, according to their gospel. They issue commands that they have literally no right to order or to expect to be obeyed. If you read, I have never mentioned one priest by name but have reported on conversations that I have been involved in. I bring to you for your consideration the actions of men who promised God they will be the sacrificial priests of the Catholic Apostolic Church.
First of all, these corrected thoughts of mine in this post and the next two will be too harsh for most of you, I make no apologies. I have seen too many good people in the Catholic Church vilified and insulted for their faith in Christ Jesus, Our Lord, and their love for the Church too many times. by those completely ignorant of the Church's ways and habits. These dreadful insults are always permitted by priests who should know better. What is most disgusting is it is the ones who use the confessional and are faithful to the instructions from Rome are rarely defended by the priest. It is more than likely those of whom the priest has no knowledge of their spiritual life or their dispositions towards the sacraments who are lauded. Is this true or would many call it a lack of charity. What then may I ask is counterfeit, my truths or my charity or perhaps both, harsh thought it may seem?
Allow me to make this statement and further explain my feelings on one of the sorriest messes in our Church. I truly believe that, as the Hierarchy in the Church through Its inability and with an almost lack of interest to act, is mostly slow and always late. If they are timely in their actions, I have personally found it is only to give a dreadful spin to their decisions as they put aside instructions from Rome. The hierarchy defends itself and its collegiate ego claiming, “God has lots of time and Patience”, so they make haste slowly, never considering their sin might be one of procrastination. I have not forgot in the main many preach there is no sin or blandly and blindly ignore sin. Therefore, they mistakenly ignore or denigrate revelations, private or public, telling us in many cases we do not have to believe any of them. They conceal their vocation behind the word “private”. They do not count the cost of losing and misleading souls for generations. It seems it is as if it is of no concern. It certainly does not seem to weigh heavily on their conscience. Souls are lost in two ways, first with confusion that fills the mind of the poor soul who is disciplined by obedience. It is often, obedience, not to the One who sent her, the soul, but of blind obedience and trust demanded to the laziness and procrastination of the hierarchs. Souls are lost. Could it not be the souls of the thousands, who flock to revelations that are not valid due to the slowness of answers? Laic minds are made up and fashioned through impatience of catechetically uninformed Catholics, not by discerning leaders, who represent Christ in their priesthood. An example for your examination, here is a revelation that is not private and yet must be treated so if it is true, by the directions of the Church. Mary says, "I am a billion dollar industry Michael". Travel the Internet and see how many catholics rather than holding a proper job, as proclaimed by Paul, sell mementos etc on web pages. See how many unqualified spiritual guides, who are found on their personal web pages advertising they will guide souls to Medjugorie. They write, “Pay my fare and I will tell you how holy we are”. It is their unwritten, unspoken motto. Who gave them this charter if not the lackadaisical response of the Hierarchs? Never is an account taken that once it is an engrained belief, whether it is true or false, many years, centuries perhaps will pass before it is forgotten. That is if ever and is the History of the Church from Arianism to the cult of the mystery religions, in “Charismatic Pentecostalism”. The Hierarchs with authority from God who gave it to the church spin the scriptures in the Hope that this soul perhaps in error or maybe not will just vanish. The Church today under the guidance of the Prelates and priests have lost the sense of the supernatural. If Saul were alive today would he be accepted if he told of a bright light that smashed him from his horse and made the claim he is an apostle? How would the Cure D’Ars, the patron saints of parish priests, survive in the Church today? The trouble is the discerning of the supernatural is interrupted today by the need to count the pennies in the collection. Ask yourselves what seems of the greatest importance in the diocese today?
