On Deliverance

 

I AM hearing from several Christians that it has been a summer of discontent. Many have found themselves wrestling with their passions, their flesh re-awakened to old struggles, new ones, and the temptation to indulge. Moreover, we have just emerged from a period of isolation, division, and societal upheaval the likes of which this generation has never seen. As a result, many have simply said, “I just want to live!” and thrown caution to the wind (cf. Temptation to be Normal). Others have expressed a certain “prophetic fatigue” and turned off the spiritual voices around them, becoming lazy in prayer and slothful in charity. As a result, many are feeling more edgy, oppressed, and struggling to overcome the flesh. In many cases, some are experiencing a renewed spiritual battle.

The Chastisement Comes… Part II

The statue commemorates the princes who gathered an all-Russian volunteer army
and expelled the forces of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth

 

RUSSIA remains one of the most mysterious countries in both historical and current affairs. It is “ground zero” for several seismic events in both history and prophecy.Continue reading

The Chastisement Comes… Part I

 

For it is time for the judgment to begin with the household of God;
if it begins with us, how will it end for those
who fail to obey the gospel of God?
(1 Peter 4:17)

 

WE are, without question, beginning to live through some of the most extraordinary and serious moments in the life of the Catholic Church. So much of what I’ve been warning about for years is coming to fruition before our very eyes: a great apostasy, a coming schism, and of course, the fruition of the “seven seals of Revelation”, etc.. It can all be summed up in the words of the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers… The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. —CCC, n. 672, 677

What would shake the faith of many believers more than perhaps witnessing their shepherds betray the flock?Continue reading

The Numbering

 

THE new Italian Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, gave a powerful and prophetic speech that recalls the prescient warnings of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. First, that speech (note: adblockers must may need to be turned off if you cannot view it):Continue reading

A Time of War

 

There is an appointed time for everything,
and a time for every thing under the heavens.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to tear down, and a time to build.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance…
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.

(Today’s First Reading)

 

IT may seem that the author of Ecclesiastes is saying that tearing down, killing, war, death and mourning are simply inevitable, if not “appointed” moments throughout history. Rather, what is described in this famous biblical poem is the state of fallen man and the inevitability of reaping what has been sown. 

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)Continue reading

The Great Meshing

 

THIS past week, a “now word” from 2006 has been in the forefront of my mind. It is the meshing of many global systems into one, overwhelmingly powerful new order. It is what St. John called a “beast”. Of this global system, which seeks to control every aspect of people’s lives — their commerce, their movement, their health, etc. — St. John hears the people cry out in his vision…Continue reading

Who is the True Pope?

 

WHO is the true pope?

If you could read my inbox, you’d see that there is less agreement on this subject than you’d think. And this divergence was made even stronger recently with an editorial in a major Catholic publication. It proposes a theory that is gaining traction, all the while flirting with schismContinue reading

The Authentic Christian

 

It is often said nowadays that the present century thirsts for authenticity.
Especially in regard to young people, it is said that
they have a horror of the artificial or false
and that they are searching above all for truth and honesty.

These “signs of the times” should find us vigilant.
Either tacitly or aloud — but always forcefully — we are being asked:
Do you really believe what you are proclaiming?
Do you live what you believe?
Do you really preach what you live?
The witness of life has become more than ever an essential condition
for real effectiveness in preaching.
Precisely because of this we are, to a certain extent,
responsible for the progress of the Gospel that we proclaim.

—POPE ST. PAUL VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi, n. 76

 

TODAY, there is so much mud-slinging toward the hierarchy regarding the state of the Church. To be certain, they bear a great responsibility and accountability for their flocks, and many of us are frustrated with their overwhelming silence, if not cooperation, in the face of this godless global revolution under the banner of the “Great Reset”. But this is not the first time in salvation history that the flock has been all but abandoned — this time, to the wolves of “progressiveness” and “political correctness”. It’s precisely in such times, however, that God looks to the laity, to raise up within them saints who become like shining stars in the darkest nights. When people want to flog the clergy these days, I reply, “Well, God is looking to you and me. So let’s get with it!”Continue reading
