Desire and right dispostion
I wrote not long ago about how those who wish to receive Holy Communion should be instructed. It does not matter who they are but they should be in a state of the Grace that makes us saints. Also it is a must, they have to be members of our Catholic Community. Anyone who denies them communion after this effort on their part should be put straight in their thoughts and actions. There are too many in the Church who are, “holier than thou”. A sin I might add against the Holy Spirit, in being envious of another's spiritual good. It is said we cannot judge and use human terms to give opinions of any criticisms. Criticisms that cause us in the main to shudder inwardly as our conscience may have been poked with a sharp point. We can judge but not sentence and that is the real problem because we cannot sentence which we so often tend to do. It is only God who knows how badly we have offended Him and whose will is just. It is time I feel when Prudence and Fortitude should be applied for by prayer amongst the Hierarchy and procedures examined and followed before too many of the indifferences, insults, iniquities, blasphemies and sacrileges pointed out at Fatima by the Archangel Michael, all of which have doubled and trebled since, get worse and God carries out His promises to Daniel once again, promises that HE GAVE OVER THE PUNISHMENT FOR THE "ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION".
Priests have or do what they are. They have at times a highly exalted feel for their situation, more so among bishops and higher, than our parish priests. Sacrificial Ministers, are what they are. They are amongst us to administer the Sacraments, God's Holy Mysteries, the most of important of which is the forgiveness of sins. No matter what we are taught Catholics without Baptism, Confession and the Last rites which must involve the Sacrament of Confession, Reparation and Reconciliation will not reach Heaven. We can go the every mass we can and this does not mean we will earn salvation. Atonement, Reparation and a sincere desire not to sin, to avoid it at any cost earn us a place in Heaven, the city of God and eternal joy. If we lose our way then we will live an eternity of eternal hatred, that is a given fact as promised by Jesus who will judge us perfectly.
A priest at the Sacrament of Confession can forgive all sins if he sees we are truly penitent except that inheritance we receive as a heritage from Adam and Eve. Anyone can go to a priest to confess our sins but still are not able to receive Holy Communion until he receives a solemn Baptism from a Sacrificial Minister. Not even the Catholic Church can change that, "for whose sins you shall forgive shall be forgiven". Of course we will always hear the false claim of the Baptism of Desire. Well the last popes have all stated and written that Vatican 2 could not change dogma or Church teachings. Well desire dies over time when not fulfilled. Look at the young man who questioned Christ about becoming a follower and Christ told Him the ways by which he could, the young man, become a full Christian. The young man did two out of the three actions Christ demanded of him. The man could not give up the riches of the world, described often by Christ in the scriptures as sinful. Remember, "A rich man cannot enter Heaven easily" The young man carried along on his way, he left. To give up these riches one must today confess them to a priest, appointed as such by the Apostolic Tradition, who will administer to you one of the three ritual acts as practiced by Christ to form for us Holy Sacraments. Take notice that Christ always sent those He healed to see the Jewish priests, the Levites. Take notice He sent them in His Day to the Temple for forgiveness, now He is no longer with us do you not think that the Levites in the Catholic Church have some grace to perform as Christ showed us they did in the Temple in Jerusalem, or was Paul wrong when he wrote, “God never took away His gifts”. Personally as is His wont He allows them but never supports them.
