  Idle and useless words, and actions.
Just had a discussion with a friend who laments the state of the Church. After these latter years dealing with me, he still does not understand although he professes to believe what I describe to him. We have had strong words on several occasions if he is there and he sees errors as a Catholic man he is to voice objections strongly and defend Truth. He was irate with me again, although I know it is his conscience bothering him. A woman stopped him at Church and said I see angels they tell me I must join the Church. This man is exemplary in his catechetical knowledge, among the best I have ever met or heard. My reaction and it will be a very different opinion among many of you who read it. Just look at my address list, you will see why I hold this as a truth. he mulled it over and as is his wont passed it off to the local RCIA group. Wrong move I say. My ex friend already attends the group and is more than disgusted at the teaching there. To my knowledge two people (older more knowledgeable Catholics, big 'C' orthodox) have stopped attending saying if they go any more they will lose their faith. By the way in the Tridentine mass we pray for all orthodox Catholics.

My ex-friend has never came to grips with usefulness as opposed to idleness. He has had to my knowledge other occasions and he personally has the weapons to fight for Truth in both events. He has been moved in two other areas of faith and asked me to take action. Right in one way that is to discuss it but who was it that moved him and not me. It was an action against sinful acts but it was him who had the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit of the Living God, move in him, not in me I have other thoughts moving in my heart. So when he went to the next RCIA the numbers had gone from many to three and he phoned to complain. I hope for his sake it is not three strikes and you are out???

Let me go on to say, "the Devil finds work for idle hands" and I know that as the works of the earth happen they correspond with works in the Spiritual world. One could say perhaps there are personal sacraments in the terms of our sacrifice so we have outward signs of our graces. Pity so many in the Church with deliberate actions and thoughts put personal opinions first and are therefore unable to recognize Grace. Many so many in the new democratic People of God are not informed in the way they should be and that will nor change without a sterling effort of many.

Now I say "informed" catholics and definitely priests should naturally know by personal study and prayer what are idle useless words, works and Charity. Read the internet and you will find the accuracy of my viewpoint many times. The Hierarch in Boston is actually recommending that Caritas a health care organization is right to allow counseling for Abortions as long as they do not provide them. Send them to a middle man seems to be their slogan. His tame theologians say this is correct for the Church teaches every one has the right to decent health care. This is of course not so Scriptures tell us we have every right to earn a healing. This action by the Boston Hierarch is a triple complicity in sin by doing nothing, allowing it and urging it. This is counseling by remote application.

Now besides in my rants, a rant it will always be in some eyes, I do often criticize men who are priests and therefore I am a dreadful sinner by many's reckoning. Dead wrong folks, so wrong as to churn my stomach at your ignorance, which I daily receive from sneering comments. It is only idle and useless if I discuss it with people who can do nothing about my views either by telling me I am wrong or correcting the error. but again look at the names on my e mail list and tell me there are no names present who can act. Then smack your foreheads and exclaim, mea culpa, I was wrong.

I have heard that I approach my different blogs too sharply and I agree. Of course I do and still will, yet we all know in the center of our minds unless we snap the reins, the mules do not respond. Far be it I curse the mules, that will be done by a Father who is good but stern. I do give advice probably not wanted but nevertheless I do seek to save the souls of the priests and the hierarchy and not one person who reads what I write can in the old fashioned word "gainsay" it. This is an active act and is Charitable forget the fraternal corrective nonsense some of you will smokescreen this blog with, using the asinine use of the word fraternal as a personal protection. I have heard it too many times not to see it is a way of passing off responsibility. You know using it as a I am not my brothers' or sisters' keeper dismissal. I get very interiorly hurt when I see my family in Christ led astray. That is called scandal.

The only error in all of my actions is very simple. I should be approaching a good and wise person with my problems with the scandalous behavior I see. Is there any amongst my readers who can claim to be so? Are you the person I'm looking for. A lenten pastoral letter on sin would certainly be helpful fathers. A retreat or two would go down well spiritually.

May God know I mean only to help my brothers and sisters in Christ save their souls. Go to Confession
 
  Repeatedly
Again, this night or early morning, I stood besides the Body, the Mystical Body in every sense. There was perfumed water, not much, in the large bowl, I know some of you are praying for a resurrection. This is as it should be. I managed to clean some more of the phlegm, spit and what seems to be 'thrown' dog feces. I hope it was only thrown and not rubbed into this sorely damaged Face. Of this last I am not sure for to think of throwing that kind of muck at Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ or at His Mystical Body sucks and is anathema. It was the Sanhedrin in the Passion of Christ who encouraged His fellow co-religionists to treat Him so abysmally. Why, I ask, would it be any different today. As I washed as kindly as I could I see around the left ear a gouge between the head and the ear, I think the Crown was knocked askew with considerable force at some time and there also seems to be a gouge at the base of the neck, at the nape, a very deep one again as though the crown was really hit and was pressed against His most sacred head with more than a considerable force. The words of Liquori comes to mind, "Ah My Outraged Jesus" How apt did St Alphonse have it. I do see now as one eye socket becomes exposed a glint of a blue pupil, reflecting what little light that reaches into this dark chamber. There is a feeling that surfaces in me as I use the water, a little life still remaining in the Body. How soon I pray will it be for the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit of Love that united the Father and the Son give life to this Mystical Body?
