Follow up on the Woman clothed in the Sun
Perhaps this may be hard to understand. Prayer will help. Perhaps a act of contrition or two will clear the reader's mind. A Blog or three ago I wrote about Blessed Mary's soul appearing in Revelations as the Woman clothed in the Sun. I was taken to task over this outrageous statement by a pentecostal evangelist over what he called, “your Catholic blasphemy”. First of all he does not, and at this time is it likely he never will, without an interior mental act of metanoia, be warm to my devotion to Blessed Mary, the Mother of God and denies Holy and Most Blessed Mary to be the “Mother of all Charismata”. Well! Well! This person is like all others who walk the way of their own thoughts and really cannot contemplate God's providence, who provides us with all the advantages of a Catholic Spiritual Family. I also mean the heights or depths to which Jesus will go for our salvation and therefore in retrospect to which Mary, His Mother and as our Spiritual Mother can and will obtain for us. Most Holy Mary in a worldly manner preceded Jesus into this benighted world and so Mary led us into Jesus' first appearance in this world and therefore our expectation should be that in some way our Spiritual Mother will precede Him in His second coming. We join in with this spiritual family by a deliberate seeking on our part of His grace through the use of the Sacramental Mysteries of His Church. Seek, watch and listen for her carefully for the sake of your soul.
What does the Old Testament say about Blessed Mary, one very appropriate statement is in Jeremiah 31:22. It refers to Israel as a disobedient Mother to Her Tribes.
“How long wilt thou be dissolute in deliciousness, O wandering daughter (Israel)? for the Lord hath created a new thing upon the earth: A WOMAN SHALL COMPASS A MAN”
Compass meant in older English “wrapped around” and in this case pregnant. Yet in any interlinear bible using the Hebrew, it says a woman will compass the Earth or Man. This could mean the earth as creation or creator. It is a fact St John Eudes uses the translation as, “A Woman will compass the world”. So Most Holy Mary's womb encloses the Son of God, who is also the Father in Trinitarian Theology and is to Catholics, the Author of Life. So can we without error say the Virgin Mary's womb contained Man's creation on behalf of and for God, the author of Life. Is it a foreknowledge, for us, of Holy Mary's, “Do unto me according to Your Word”? Do any of you have any inkling of what “Word” meant in this usage? Was or is it an esoteric method of relating a prophecy in a hidden way, preceding Holy Mary's words, “Do as Jesus chooses”. Remember as Catholics we often say and hear that Jesus Himself chose Holy Mary to be His Mother.
Let me take it further as the Catholic Poem written by F.W.Wetherell and sung to Bach's Liebster Immanuel makes this strong statement.
“Mary Immaculate Star of the Morning
Chosen before creation began,
Chosen to bring for Her bridal adorning
Woe to the serpent and rescue to man”.
My comment is the Virgin of Guadeloupe, accepted in the Church as the Woman clothed in the Sun, clothed in the brightest of worldly light but less than the Light of God, wore a pregnancy bow that only a Queen can wear in the Mexican Tradition. Adorned with both a pregnancy bow and wearing her boast of Jesus, in her womb. compassed around Her baby, pregnant with the Sun of God, became Her own personal transfiguration and is shown to us all standing on the Moon. This is a reality. Blessed Mary came bringing at that time the last line of the poem above. In effect we all might consider Mary was clothed with the Sun of Justice, Jesus Christ. Therefore only someone as described by God's voice in Isaiah as a “Heart of Stone” would chose not to honor a Woman whose Womb enclosed the Sacred Humanity of Jesus Christ (The Word) and the whole of creation.
Looking at Revelations 12:1 and following we see Heaven's first view of a human soul, the view of how the soul of mankind was meant to be, in the thoughts of God. What we should ask why it was clothed with the sun? Can any of you see the assumptions I made earlier as valid?
In the Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus we see about 6 or 7 titles in, Jesus is called the SUN of justice. I remember well a silly convert who told me it was too new age to be true and he was supported by a priest since dead. I have often wondered what he, the priest, thought when he stood before that terrible sight, that burning Sun of Justice, dispensing Justice according to His Will, His Knowledge and perfect justice? Nevertheless we are talking about this priest's ultimate sight of the Sacred Humanity of Jesus. The most beautiful sight of all our lives which we can neither see nor yet look at. He made all our souls out of the radiance of (His) God's thought. We are both His will or conception (idea or thought) and this cannot be sinful.
This first soul created was, sinless and beautiful. We too, are all without exception conceived sinless yet we are born into this world sinful. Why I ask, do we all rush downhill so fast in this world? Sinful, if we are of Adam's heredity or if as the Book of Revelation hints all souls come from the light of God's radiance to be born immaculately, that is sinless if we are conceived, as Mary was, in God's mind before the creation of the world. Unfortunately most of us follow after Adam. Revelation tells us so and the first soul preceded the devil, who being deposed as the Angel of Light was thrown out of heaven to do his mischief on earth. It is unfortunate that Adam sinned and although we are conceived immaculate, and yet like the deposed filth of wickedness we enter into this world sinful and concupiscent. He, the Lord created the world and on the sixth day Adam was made and this new soul added to the animal life of the world was tempted to sin. The Filth of Hatred for us, the devil, created himself, by defying and rebelling against God, Revelations 12:9 “And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him”.
Adam was tempted and he and Eve sinned thus losing for us the wisdom into which we were created. The wisdom which comes from Grace and is grace. This was our loss as we became heirs to Adam and Eve's sin.
So Blessed Mary clothed in the burning radiance of Her Son, appeared upon the Moon at 8.15 pm on Christmas Eve 1995 to 4 people and also about twenty others who watched enthralled until the appearance finally ended with a shooting star clothed in the Colors of Fatima, first red, then blue, then golden to end with a brilliant white explosion. The star shot out from under her feet going from right to the left of Teyepac, loudly roaring with energy, across the sky above Mexico City. This should be not hard to trace. Check out the appearance of the Star, there will certainly be record at some astronomy site around Mexico City.
Again you do not have to believe me, print this out, show it to your parish priest and ask him what he thinks. You will know interiorly what to make of his answer. Be neither frightened nor fearful, he is responsible for your soul and must for the sake of his soul tell you the rightness or wrongness of this story. He will, if he is honest, consult his bishop who is his spiritual father for his answer. I expect the Bishop will be honest and not dissemble. Don’t you?
