  Returning to Past Relationships

Before I begin let allow me to quote this man

Britain’s Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathon Sacks wrote

“But,” Sacks writes, “note this: the things we care about are vast, distant, global, remote.” When it comes to matters closer to us such as trust or simple truth telling, Sacks says we have more or less abandoned notions of right and wrong. Instead, the West has embraced a morality in which what ultimately matters, ethically speaking, is whether we choose something.

Choice has become its own justification and the only sin is to question anyone’s moral choices. To do so is to be “intolerant” or “judgmental.” Who are you to question my choice to lie on my mortgage-application or my choice to betray my wife?

Anything written that follows is what I witnessed heard and observed. It may be I judged but not wrongly, perhaps by some standards as Lord Sacks wrote in the Daily Telegraph, it is. But I did not condemn and I am amazed that all those who say Lord! Lord! Will probably be treated as Matthew warned. I do sincerely hope then have a metanoia.

There are other occasions events that took place over time that sprang from my prayer relationship with Lorna Keras and starting the Angelus and Rosary at St Joseph’s in Mission. Apart from the spiteful anger of the Parish Priest at me and the 6 pm prayer meeting we frequented 5 days a week. Never once showing up to lead us but always peeping through a small window to watch us a real peeper he was. The only time he came into the same room was to ask us to pray for a parishioner who was killed in a dreadful car accident earlier that day. Funnily enough for want of a better expression as we prayed one woman watched her ascend into heaven. This I would never doubt because of the great charitable works this woman did for any priest.

Just after the group started, Mary’s presence was noted by the woman present who exclaimed astonishment over the most beautiful perfume one of them was wearing. It was late fall and the gardener had removed all the plants outside. It was the first of many occasions when the scent of every flower ever blooming made itself apparent. Just as my wife and I had a simultaneous interior, urge to start the Rosary in the Church another woman and I had the urge to start a smaller group. We talked about it and the other three whose presence was required by again an interior thought met at our home, a very lonely place far from any distractions. As we talked, I asked “L” what she could see in the trees across from our big picture window. She saw, as I did, the face of Christ patterned by the leaves. This prayer relationship was the start of a religious experience, which did not blossom, as it should have. It was set aside by spiritual envy, a blasphemy of the Holy Spirit by local small "c" catholics who would not could not, even with all the proof Jesus provided, accept it . They were Holy and in their eyes two of us in this group one was an intemperate rogue and the other a half wit. By their often expressed standards. The same sinfulness also reached out to us from someone who knew better Lorna through her group. No one could be as holy as Lorna was, which is written in the stone minds of her group. They made this a comparison with at least one priest, whom they did not impress. I took three priests there. This account is written in a previous blog. A fact I reported to the Vicar General at that time. One of them strongly insisted on two occasions what I was and my information did not come from God. Another later member of Lorna’s cult told a lonely defenseless man, a Ron Bouchard, who had a serious medical problem that he sometimes ffor which he often forgot to take his medicine. Ron has since died a lonely death. This follower would not pray with Ron if he persisted on praying with me. Ron even arranged to pray with us both at the Grotto in Mission. We did and I asked if I could say my prayer over him that begins, “I am the Hero of Fatima”. He became so apprehensive, turned, and ran. Later he came back at around the end of the second decade. He habitually wore at least that was what I noticed two huge silver ornaments (in his case) a Tau and a Cross-they were big enough to clink as he walked (ran). He came back brandishing and waving them in my face. Later I asked what caused him to run. His answer was he felt such a tremendous power hit him. I told him of a problem which incident I am sure he understood caused a blasphemy to occur. I told him how Mary of Salette had stamped her foot and said, “They will not pick and choose between my Prophets. “L” saw this and heard the exclamation. This expert on holiness said, “Mary might cry, Mary might Laugh but she would never stamp her foot”. I reminded him of Genesis. All he could say you have a hard road ahead and left.

More next time on this “period in time” and its ending. For those who locally think I am weird, there is likely to come a time soon when you will have to explain that to a Power far bigger than anything on Earth. I recommend stand before the Cross and pray. Say, “My God, My God how have I offended Thee in what way have I deserted Thee?” So many as Mary says, “We would like to talk to and so many will not listen”.
