Cardinal Ravasi, David Bowie and Satanism

The Eponymous Flower notes:

"Just in time for Voris' recent accusation comes this.  Cardinal Ravasi has enjoyed the uncritical patronage of Pope Francis, and  has also been in a significant position for a while, notably as the head of the Pontifical Council of Culture and President of the Synod of Bishops where he undermined the sacrament of marriage.   He is also a bit of an occultist himself.

Now he's made this tweet on behalf of the late David Jones aka David Bowie:

The late darling of Cardinal Ravasi's idolatry had a long history of practicing occultism, black magic, Crowleyism, advocate of gender ideology and was a self-described Gnostic.  He believed that magic led to his fortune and fame.

He scandalized the public by making a similar tweet, quoting Lou Reed's tribute to heroin when the nihilistic pop star died at the age of 71.

Of course you'd expect a positive reaction from the aberrosexual enabling, Old Liberal Jesuit, James Martin who described the Cardinal's tweet as 'elegant' on his Facebook page."

Carlo Climati, Press Director of the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome told the Catholic News Agency (CNA) that a society dominated by moral relativism "fosters the spread of Satanism" and that Satanism, in turn, "destroys those universal values that are written in the hearts of each human being" and creates "a society that is turned on its head, in which good becomes evil and evil becomes good."

In his book Communism and the Conscience of the West, Archbishop Fulton John Sheen warned that, "He [Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the Mystical Body of Christ...Then will be verified a paradox - the very objections with which men in the last century rejected the Church will be the reasons why they will now accept the counterchurch." (pp. 24-25).

Those of us who haven't lost our faith and who battle it out in the trenches know full well that all is not well.  "Erit enim tempus, cum sanam doctrinam non sustinebunt, sed ad sua desideria coacervabunt sibi magistros, prurientes auribus. Et a veritate quidem auditum avertent, ad fabulas autem convertentur." (2 Timothy 4: 3-4).

And that time is now. New Age philosophies are spreading throughout the Church. Homosexuality and lesbianism are celebrated. Even in some Catholic parishes. Intoxicated with their own knowledge and learning, those who have succumbed to friendship with the world tell us that we must leave behind the "old complexes" and reject 'backward thinking' so that we may evolve into more "civilized" beings who may then build an earthly paradise. These misguided souls are not interested in knowledge for the sake of truth, but for power and possession.

A society that is turned on its head.  A society in which good becomes evil and evil becomes good.  Have we not already arrived at such a society?  Abortion, the killing of innocents, is extolled as a good.  Homosexuality, a sin which cries to Heaven for vengeance, is called "gay," merely an "alternative lifestyle."  Catholics who stand with the Magisterium are deemed to be harmful to the community while those who dissent from Church teaching are praised and given top posts within the Church.

The words of Isaiah condemn our sin-sick society:

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who change darkness into light, and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet, and sweet into bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own sight, and prudent in their own esteem!" (Isaiah 5: 20, 21).

NO DOUBT : WE LIVE IN THE BIBLICAL ENDTIMES before Jesus second coming to cleanse and restore the Church/Humanity/ the Earth

Luke 10:18 Jesus tells his disciples, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”=BarakOBama in Aramaic and in Hebrew

Translations of בָּרָק

lightning             בָּרָק

Yeshua spoke Aramaic / Hebrew and he would not have said these words in Greek as the New Testament thus don’t turn to the Greek words for any information here.  What are the words lightening and Heaven or Heights in Hebrew?
Lightning  בּרק bâraq
A primitive root; to lighten (lightning): – cast forth. בּרק bârâq
lightning : by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning.
Did Lucifer say he would ascend into the heights? Yes he did,
Isaiah 14:12  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isaiah 14:13  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isaiah 14:14  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds (heavens); I will be like the most High.
Heights  בּמה   bâmâh
From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave.
A word in Hebrew used to join concepts together as a conjuction would be Vav which is often pronounced as  “O” - Vav with a dot on top is pronounced “o”, ....   So, to join "Lighting" and the "heights" of Heaven, one would use “O”.
So, in the poetic style of Isaiah we would have Lightning and heights of Heaven as Baraq “O” Bamah .    
From this we would see Yeshua saying,
 “I beheld Satan fall as Baraq “O” Bamah.

Dear God in heaven, have mercy on your people and send us faithful shepherds! Thank you Paul, for your faithfulness and bravery in defending the true teachings of Holy Mother Church.

Paul Anthony Melanson said...

Thank you for that Cyn. My post shouldn't be taken as a condemnation of Bowie either. We hate the sin and love the sinner. We should all pray for the repose of his soul.

Well, this article with included video gave me chills...and a desire to make many acts of reparation not only for David Bowie, but all of his fans...like me. I was a teenager in the 70's and "loved" David Bowie. My father would not allow Diamond Dogs in the house and ripped the album cover to pieces. I couldn't understand why. Now I do.
Thank you for pulling the wool off my eyes.
