All Conversations in My Heart

  Is this a proper view of the conditions of God's Love and the Liturgical Views of the Church?
Here is another controversial topic, the Liturgy. I do not make it a controversy. I have no need to but there are so many in the Church who do not know the meanings of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and what it has meant to the Church throughout the ages, and more importantly how revelations blossoming as a “Rose e'er blooming” advances our knowledge of God and the sacrifice. If you are a priest I would read no further because most of you are in some sort of denial either of your conscience or the practice of the offering the sacrifice. Even The Holy Father did not shy away from this subject in his homily last week,Pope Francis stated very vehemently, with the type of invective used in Christ's true accusations against the Jewish Hierarchy, many priests have lost their “UNCTION”.
First of all I read and hear of so many who are teaching the intricacies of the Sacrament, who are not priests, in fact I can write, without any degree of fear of honest contradiction, I have never heard a priest in recent times teach what the Church teaches on this the most sacrifice of the altar. I do not doubt there is a huge number who are present at the Mass, who know do receive the multitudinous benefits of the sacrifice of the little Lamb of God who chose to suffer, be crucified and die so that their sins could be forgiven. I also do not doubt that many present do not even think for one moment they should be suitably penitent or feel they should make any kind of reparation for the sins committed against the sacrifice being offered. Look at this announcement by a Philippine Cardinal, in a newsletter in 2004. Has it improved any since. Is this serious error only in the Philippines? The laws of fasting are ignored. In the Preparation mass for the Jan 1st. Holy day of Obligation, I watched children chewing gum and people sucking on water all the way through the Liturgy still lining up many with a blank, vacant demeanour to receive. Did they, in breaking the Church Law, truly receive the Body and Blood of Christ???

Philippines Losing Sense of Sin, Says Prelate Cites Example of 32 Cohabiting Couples
MANILA, Philippines, MARCH 9, 2004 (Zenit.org).- Philippine Catholics have little understanding of repentance due to the loss of the sense of sin, warns the president of the country's episcopal conference.
"Repentance is difficult because today the sense of sin is disappearing from the conscience of Filipinos," Archbishop Fernando Capalla of Davao said in an editorial in the bulletin of the episcopal conference, according to AsiaNews. He cited an incident that occurred last November. At a parish, 32 couples who had cohabited for years were being prepared for marriage. The pastor told them they should go to confession before their marriage, a ceremony that would be celebrated by the archbishop. The couples answered: "Father, we have no sins to confess." Such ignorance of sin happens because of their "indifferent and weak consciences, so hardened as to no longer hear the interior voice of God," the archbishop said. The couples' reply is common "to many in our country and in the Church of today," he added. "What has happened?" he asked. "Why do people say sin no longer exists? Why do they rarely go to confession? Why do so many receive the Body of Christ in holy Communion even in a state of mortal sin?"
The archbishop sees the loss of the sense of sin affecting the electoral campaign in the Philippines.
"The politicians make vain promises, buy the votes of the electorate; some even denigrate with lies the rival candidates," he said. "Yet, despite this, they go to church, attend Mass and go to Communion. But when they leave the Church, they fight against one another."
Do you think he should have strongly and loudly said you do not receive unless you are in a state of grace? It seems as early as 2004 they, the defenders of the Faith knew of the bad catechesis they are responsible for, and has any one of you who reads this seen an honest effort to defend the most Holy Sacrifice of the Altar from the dreadful warnings given by Holy Michael the Archangel at Fatima? Has any priest even read the prayer and instructed his sheep to use it? What I have heard from many bishops and priests is, “We d not have to believe in Fatima, even calling it a private revelation. Well it is right there in 1st. Corinthians. Also the opening chapters of Isaiah tells us God will not accept such sacrifices. Get your parish priest or local ordinary to comment on both scriptures mentioned above. Most of you will not, because you do not want to know.
Perhaps they should just stay home and join the gladiators in the sports arenas on Sunday TV? Many mass attendees leave early, right after taking what I cannot believe is a true sacrifice on their part. It cannot be as the Church says, “Not being present from the start of the Gospel to not receiving the last blessing constitutes the mortal sin of missing mass on Sundays. Ask your parish priest if that is true. Can you find the fortitude to ask him? Can you avoid the sin which you pray at the start of mass, remember what you pray. I thought not. “In all I have failed to do.”
May I ask a question of you all? Will you be at least be honest with yourselves? Here is the question, “Where in scriptures does it actually say, go to Mass on Sundays? Where in scriptures, that is in this case the New Testament, you must receive the Body of Christ, at mass? Apart from obeying the Law of the Church is there any point in going to Mass? If your answers are honest you cannot answer until you have a clear definite reason for going at all. Can I write that at masses today most participants are in a pious coma, not really informed of what is both a lack of true piety and the virtue of religion. Do you all really know what the Mass is all about? The atmosphere surely is not conducive to true piety. Don't fool yourselves by denying my view with ad hominem remarks about the state of my mind think rather of the sake of your souls at the Sunday mass. How many missed mass last week but went to communion this week? A lot of you, I dare say. I once had a very nasty discussion about confession with an older woman. She claimed too she did not sin. She was a grandmother with three children all married with two children between them. They had all had been married for some time. Did they use birth control then? She did not know. Did she suspect they did? She did not know. Had she asked? Of course not. I had no need to ask more, her face told the story.
I cannot nor will I ever comprehend the present lack of knowledge of what God since the time of Genesis, through God's laws in Deuteronomy, Leviticus and Numbers, lays out how the sacrifice is made pleasing to God, and what happens when we sin against His Direct commands.spiritual arena and furnishings where and how it is to be offered. Who are the ministers of the Sacrifice and where it is to be offered. It was the Levite men and not the women. What a total disaster it is today that there is almost an overwhelming majority who do not or cannot be bothered to inform their consciences of how God looks upon those sacrifices that do not meet with His instructions. Instructions that fulfills His desires for the state of body, soul and spirit of what are loosely called the sacrificers. He makes His state of mind very obvious in the Old Testament. In Isaiah and the Miserere Psalm. Again check with your priest if the Old Law holds any validity for us. You might encourage an answer if you couch your question thus, "Does God change His Mind?

Read this from John Chapter 8 verses 51 to 59 and ask your priest for a comment.
Amen, amen I say to you: If any man keep my word, he shall not see death for ever. The Jews therefore said: Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest: If any man keep my word, he shall not taste death for ever. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? and the prophets are dead. Whom dost thou make thyself? Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father that glorifieth me, of whom you say that he is your God. And you have not known him, but I know him. And if I shall say that I know him not, I shall be like to you, a liar. But I do know him, and do keep his word. Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see my day: he saw it, and was glad. The Jews therefore said to him: Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say to you, before Abraham was made, I am. But Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple. 

I have often wondered at the words “Hid Himself” Does it mean God is able to be invisible to sinners? Your Parish priest should know and should answer, "Until they repent".

One of the most irresponsible statements I have heard from the mouth of a priest was, "God knows what we are and makes allowances for us". I asked, “God is not interested then in any sort of perfection from us, is second best good enough?” Then Christ lied when he said, "Be as perfect as your Father in Heaven".The other is, “God is unconditional love”. Wow! Can I count Hell is abolished then?” and like Luther we can say once Christ died we are all forgiven. Why does scriptures use the conditional form of the verb and the conditional preposition “if” so much”. “If you love me you will keep My commandments”. Or use Thou shalt not, so often, when placing His instructions before us. Any instructions following these admonitions must spring from our knowledge of we do not obey His words.
The exercise I underwent when I was awake in the early hours of one morning when I was given an experience of Hell, could it have been all smoke and mirrors? How can it be a private revelation when God loved me so much He took time and pains to warn me of my position in His eyes? Are we not supposed to love others as he loves us???? I can state and the only way any priest can deny it is to say I am sick, mentally of course. Perhaps God might allow me to be present at the final judgement of those in denial. Nevertheless I experienced, experienced it not visited it. Hell is truly the Kingdom of despair, of self loathing because we had every chance here in this world to avoid it. Hatred is the thick and disgusting atmosphere one breaths there. What is dreadful is the feeling of emptiness. A feeling that God has withdrawn that gratuitous grace that keeps us living.  I cannot imagine that few seconds of pain lengthened out into eternity. As for God is Love two things you should be aware of Jesus never said God is Love specifically. That mistranslation of the original texts came only into our lexicon when aliens translated the Gospel to support their Star Trek lifestyle and added titles to chapters.They have made what they think Jesus said. Jesus did say love me above all things, love others as I love you. He did say love your enemies and then later climbed the Cross to die for us. I use the Douai(Y) Rheims Bishop Challoner's version, which I grew up with. John wrote in first letter chapter 4 “God is Charity” A whole lot different than the Harlequin Romance Version of Alien translators. In fact when I discussed it with a so called Christian one quote he used, given as a bible quote to support the what would Jesus do philosophy, Romans 3:85, “Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?”What about us and a question we should ask ourselves, "Can we drive away the Holy Ghost that is God's Dive Spirit of Supernatural Love? Of course we can that is why Jesus instituted the sacrament of confession and reconciliation. A the use of the quotation becomes a trifle oxymoronic, for surely it defines how Jesus will leave us or hide Himself from us? Again check with your parish priest to find any veracity in these words. David asks do not take your Holy Spirit from
All through scriptures starting in Genesis. God summarily dismissed us from His presence. Adam and Eve sent away from Paradise, Cain sent into the desert, Samson broke his vows as a Nazarite and lost all his strength. David cries out in Psalm 50, "Turn not your face from me, take not Your Holy Spirit from me". Wisdom tells us that the Spirit of Discipline will flees from the deceitful and withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding  and He shall not abide when iniquity comes in". Habbakuk writes God does not see sin(ners), His eyes are too pure. God took exception to King Saul, when he channeled the spirit of witch craft. Jesus tells Peter to get out of His sight. Vice-a-versa we cannot see Jesus if we are sinful. 
Look at Matthew 13 verses 56 to 58, And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence therefore hath he all these things? And they were scandalized in his regard. But Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he wrought not many miracles there, because of their unbelief".
Once again one can claim God cannot do good for, or show his love to those who deny Him.
So I urge you to have the virtue of fortitude and if you feel you can see a truth or any truth in what I have set before you, go ask your priest to read and confirm if there is any veracity in what you have read. Can you do this, many of you cannot. Then, therefore pray after you have decided you can't or won't. Ask God in His Son's name and in the use of Jesus' words, “My God! My God! How has this man forsaken you?” Then at least if Christ's promises hold water you will know.
