Catholic Health Association Supports Senate on Abortion Aid

I'm often accused (by lukewarm "Catholics" who have succumbed to a secular mindset or New Age relativism) that I am an "alarmist." But I stand with Sister Lucia dos Santos (the Fatima seer) who warned about the encroachment of a "diabolical disorientation" - see here. Things have degenerated to such a degree that many - even most "Catholics" today - are no longer capable of discerning between good and evil, right and wrong. Many are living lives which simply cannot be described as Christian. I was recently told by two seniors that their "pastor" has informed them that they can engage in sexual relations outside of marriage and that anyone who attempts to tell them that fornication is, [objectively speaking], a grave sin can "go to hell." Such people, according to this priest, should themselves make a sacramental confession.

All around the world, we are witnessing the fruit of this diabolical disorientation. In Ireland, the Church is shaken by more scandal.

This is not to judge souls. No, we are forbidden to judge a person's interior guilt. That is for God alone. See Gaudium et Spes, No. 28. But we are to judge words, ideas and actions which fail to live up to the Lumen Christi.

Are we spiritually blind? Have we become so desensitized to sin that we can no longer recognize it in our midst? And most especially in ourselves?

We need reform. Beginning with ourselves. We need to pray the daily Rosary - outside of Holy Mass there is no greater spiritual weapon. We need to avail ourselves of the sacraments - and most especially the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

We can do nothing without Jesus - HE HAS SAID SO. And He is Truth.

Things have become so bad that I have built an ark so to speak of my home. All we can do now is pray. The "deluge" is fast-approaching. Only God can make things right now. So many priests and and lay people have lost their faith and now even justify the killing of children in the womb. It's like the days of Noah are being repeated.

Clinton Catholic...I think you're so right. A majority of Christians have apostasized and have just given up striving to be followers of Jesus. Make your home an ark and pray constantly. The angel of death will soon bring chastisement. Pray the rosary, mercy chaplet and spend time before the Eucharist. Soon, as has been prophesied, the demons will make themselves visible and the three days of darkness will be upon us. I really believe that. We have heard this from so many approved Catholic prophets such as Padre Pio. The time is so short now.
