The Didache

"In the last days there will multiply false prophets and corruptors and they shall be changed into wolves of their flocks. Charity will be converted into hatred. There will be an increase in iniquity; men will mutually hate each other, they will persecute and betray each other and then there will appear the deceiver of the world saying he is the son of God. He will make signs and do miracles. The earth will be given into his hands and he will do such iniquities as has never before been done throughout the centuries....Therefore, what men have created will be cleansed by fire and many will be scandalized and will perish, but those who persevere in their faith will be saved from the evil one..."

There are many Catholics who are so secularized today that such words seem to them as mere fantasy or pious hyperbole. The problem for such "enlightened" minds is that these words are taken from the Didache, which is (and always has been) considered to be, "the most important document of the SubApostolic period, the oldest source of ecclesiastical law which we possess.." (Patrology, Quasten, Vol. 1, p.30).

And today, a blasphemous film is released which attacks the very holiness of Our Lord and His Mystical Body which is the Catholic Church. Will people rush to embrace this film while rejecting the Divine Mercy?

"..Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet; the very depths of My tender mercy are stirred for the sake of those who say the chaplet. Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them." (Our Lord to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, Divine Mercy in My Soul," Notebook II (No. 848).

Paul

You have to wonder why so many priests are remaining silent on The Da Vinci Code and are not speaking out against this blasphemy.
