You Will Always be Questioning; Even in Eternity
We are supposed I would think to question our faith and actions . Is this not what the Church teaches? Are we not supposed to examine our consciences? Did not our Lord Jesus Christ tell us, "Ask and it will be given?" Not to do so will make a catholic less than tepid and will be spit from His Mouth. Even with my knowledge of that phrase, I see, both in Latin and Modern English, it can be, depending on one's position in the pew, be compromised in both the Old Hebrew Law and Revelations, with today's translations. In fact in older books of my childhood I read that we can still be tepid/lukewarm and be in a state of grace that is reach heaven. I pray tell me all you experts, does it mean when in modern parlance God says I will spit you out of My mouth or in Latin "vomitus" is used. Does that suggest Heaven as a reward? The changes in the Church in the last 40 years and more are so far removed from my father's catholic life and practice of his faith, and even more so my grandmothers ,that the Bishops had better start brushing up their defense for I fear they will be vomited out of the court of no appeal that Final Court where we will know out state for eternity. I know, both my Father's mother and my father are in heaven and they have forgiven me my former life that differed so greatly from theirs. The Word said, "They are with Me and they have no recriminations"
So I ask my questions, not caring how you feel about me. Worried what the Just judge will sentence me to and trying through the Mystical Rites of the Church and using His Holy Name to be prepared for my death in good standing in His presence.
There is not one person in the church today who does not use Vatican 2 to justify the way in which they practice and live their Catholic or catholic Faith. This causes me to shake my head in sheer disbelief at the monstrous conceit that allows many of our faith that have become faux experts on so many aspects of centuries of teachings, to boast of their holiness (State of Grace)
In Tobit it is written, Chapter 4: 13, Take heed to keep thyself, my son, from all fornication, and beside thy wife never endure to know a crime. 14 Never suffer pride to reign in thy mind, or in thy words: for from it all perdition took its beginning".
St Paul wrote 1 Tim 3: 14 ,These things I write to thee, hoping that I shall come to thee shortly. 15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And evidently great is the mystery of godliness, which was manifested in the flesh, was justified in the spirit, appeared unto angels, hath been preached unto the Gentiles, is believed in the world, is taken up in glory.
Tobit's warning is plain when pride reigns in our minds or words (opinions) is the beginning of perdition that is the loss of salvation. When I read Paul I become very aware we should behave and act in Truth that sits in the Catholic Church the foundation and supporting pillars of Truth. I question can the new Church of Vatican 2 support this claim? It is for you, yourselves to answer but at least look around and be honest about your self and what is being taught in the Church today. Ask yourself have we, due to ecumenism, changed scriptures, changed the values of creation? Due to the very acceptable dogmas of Going along with to get along, The prosperity syndrome where it is a sin to be poor and social justice demands that too many children and the poverty they cause is not what God wants for us.
It can be seen, what is known and written about by many who study the faith according to their Hoyle never really fulfills God's will. Rotten and deceased spiritual teachers abound who are demanding we follow their deadful nightmarish dream of what God would do if He were here. They never teach, any longer, what He did do. They have little or no intention of informing their conscience, upon which their faith should stand. They admire deeply the sand castle in which they live. So many are pushed aside, demeaned and insulted, who obey our church's traditional teachings, who inform their consciences by doing all they can to learn from the Catechism, the Vatican documents of historic significance, the Fathers of the Church and rites and rituals of Catholicism. All of which by the opening homily of Vatican 2 could not be changed.
Let me give you a viewpoint of Vatican 2 and what it has evolved into and I ask anyone who reads it to consider honestly, "What are the fruits?" Making your decisions according to which pew in which you live. I ask only that you look at my questions with a just consideration and seek within yourself the answer to the question, "Is this factual?" Seek to find from Church Documents, Hierarchial Actions and in the very literal spiritual hamstringing of our priests in today's church, if they are the same as the Church, that was, from which so many are seeking to separate us? Seek very deeply what you consider your answers tell you. Are your answers good, bad or merely adequate, in comparison from what you have found? In comparing the priesthood of today remember though that if the priest is a true spouse of the Church than the words of the canticle prevail, one of which should make him to us as a price beyond compare. I want the following to be true for the priesthood and consider it as their promise given to them from God, which I feel is,and should be for them.
Isaiah ch. 54:11…O poor little one, tossed with tempest, without all comfort, behold I will lay thy stones in order, and will lay thy foundations with sapphires, 12…And I will make thy bulwarks of jasper: and thy gates of graven stones, and all thy borders of desirable stones.13.. All thy children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of thy children.14 And thou shalt be founded in justice: depart far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee".
If you look at the bravery and heroic virtue of so many of the men who suffer through vocations, trials and tribulations, ignorantly treated by Bishops who have no knowledge of fatherhood, one looks at the above words and pray that all of Isaiah will come true for them.
Returning to my views on Vatican 2, I do take umbrage at the denial and spin so many bishops put on the workings of this council. Although they try collegiately not to fib so many of them do and yet tacitly there is an admittance by some of their colleciate members that on their part perhaps Vat 2 is not today what it was intended to be. Just once in or with some kind of integrity they might mention what they voted for has made the present day Church to be the disunited rebellious mob it has become. How it must be an affront to their power that so many of the LAITY are now clamoring loudly for a return to the traditions and teachings taught before. Not what is often seen today that makes me think in this church today that may just be to Heaven an abomination of desolation
