Deception


ds4z8z-252005a2-8fc6-42fa-a98c-ce9026bb5c8c

“See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ” (Col 2:8).

I have been reading this story for the past few days, regarding the man who took his own life in Seattle. I have read his personal social media posts regarding his ordeal with terminal illness and other struggles and what is very clear cut about this man to me, from my perspective, is he never truly grasped our Catholic faith.

Same sex marriage, assisted suicide, divination (consulting mediums), all are very grave sins within our faith.

From the moment this story broke, it was riddled with deception.  When I say this, I am not speaking about deception within the leaders of the Catholic Church, but self deception on the part of the man who took his own life into his own hands, and finished his way.

Let it be known, that I do not know what has become of this mans soul. I pray for him.

What I do know, is through looking at his posts, that he was not a follower of our Lord, nor obedient to His teachings.  Most of what I have read, through his own writings and the aftermath of his decision to take his own life, has left a mess riddled with deception and has caused many faithful asking the question, who did this? Many place the blame on the Priests, the diocese, and even the man. Who is to blame? Deception is to blame.

SELF-DECEPTION

Definition

The moral failure to recognize one’s own limitations and failures or to see the real reasons for one’s behavior.

The entire story reeks of  diabolic (division). Thus, deception and the very name of the devil.

Romans 16:17-20 is needed here. We are so quick to blame one another when deception has entered the picture. We need not to blame one another, but rather need to reinforce that wall where the evil one tried to gain access, by remaining in the Truth, crushing deception’s head and the illusions it has produced.

Our Lord speaks of the evil one in this way: “He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Self deception speaks in character also. Because the one who has deceived themselves, does not yet know the Truth. The Truth is our Lord. The “fruit” produced under self deception, is deception, false hope and disobedience. Do not be drawn into it.

The night before our Lord’s passion, “While they were eating, he said, “I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me.”.  The evil one was in the same room.  He had entered into Judas, while he was conspiring against Him. I ponder now, how often we conspire against our Lord as we try to justify our own self deception. The times we tell ourselves, Jesus will forgive me if I do this because I feel its right for me, without taking counsel from those who do know, without a doubt, what we want to do is truly unjust. We only deceive ourselves as our Lord knows better and desires the better for us, always. He will never force the better upon us as He created us with free will, to accept Him, or deny Him and the better.

From tonight’s Liturgy of the Hours, Evening Prayer:

Clothe your faithful people in the armor of salvation,
 and shield them from the deceptions of the devil.
Lord, show us your mercy.

A Leaven In The World . . . Where Is There “Room To Disagree” With Jesus? In Hell!


Oblique_facade_3,_US_Supreme_Court

Must share – MUST read via Padre-Kevin Michael Cusick

“Where do we get the idea that we can love others if we reject God’s salvation for them? Not from God. The confusion that regularly passes for sanity on the part of so many Christians and Catholics is evident in the widespread societal capitulation in the wake of the Obergefell decision of the nine-person Sanhedrin of Satan we call the Supreme Court of the United States.”

WARNING! NO SWIMMING!


Ebola---Alligator--swamp-jpg

This weekend there was a very horrific accident that occurred in Texas. A man and his girlfriend were out late one night and decided to go for a swim in the boat harbor. Posted everywhere were signs saying WARNING! NO SWIMMING Alligators. DANGER!

Along with the signs, there were souls who warned the young man about the gators and begged him NOT to go into the water. The young man began taunting a gator, removed his outer clothing and plunged into the harbor, knowing the risks. As quick as he entered the alligator infested waters, he was being dragged down under by the huge gator he was taunting second before. He managed to scream for help, but it was already too late for horrified onlookers to help him. He was gone and nothing could bring him back.

As I sat horrified reading this immensely sad story this morning, I began to ponder how so closely related this story is, to souls doing this exact same thing all day with their souls. Ignoring the well placed warning signs from our Lord in His words and actions. Ignoring the faithful trying, with their entire hearts in love for them, to persuade them not do continue on into that way of life and to please turn back! Ignoring the Church and assuming the soul about to dive into the alligator infested water knows better than she does.

Ignoring it all and plunging into the depths of the murky water of waiting sharp teeth, as the souls who warned them, unable to do a thing to help them, because they just wouldn’t listen because they thought they knew better, sit in horror for the souls jumping in.. Following along the Culture of Death and assuming nothing else matters but what they want. The entire time, the evil one is luring them into the depths, telling them, come on in! We can be friends, only to tear them to pieces.

I will not sit here and call this man names, nor laugh at his lack of discernment. I will pray for his soul, and for the souls of those who had to witness such a tragic event because, someone refused to heed a warning, just as this takes place daily to souls, and unseen by many in this world, who senselessly dive head long, into the cesspool of the Culture of Death.

I Will Not Worship The Golden Calf


sv-semeistvo

REPENT…

All over the MSM you see “Love Wins” in regards to the same sex marriage law being man made legal in 50 US states. Yes. Love most certainly does win but most do not know who He is yet. I pray that many will receive the grace from our Lord for understanding of who He is.

Again SCOTUS chants “We have no king but Caesar”. Just as it was chanted through the pen for Abortion and now for Marriage. Jesus Christ is MY King, not the USA. It was Saint Augustine of Hippo who stated that “An unjust law is no law at all”. Just as an unjust law is no law at all, so to are the men and woman who enforce the unjust law. So to are those who follow the unjust law. I will not. I OPENLY refuse to worship the “Golden Calf” of the nation. Jesus Christ is my King. “But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15

From the USCCB

“Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage.”

Please continue to read at the link.

Repent. Pray Divine Office 3X daily. Pray the Rosary daily. Pray before every meal. Attend daily Holy Mass (if you can) and if you can not, participate in it through EWTN rebroadcast. Pray without ceasing. Receive the sacraments frequently. “LOVE one another as I have loved you” – Be not afraid. DO not give into disrepair. Give in only to our Lord Jesus Christ. Teach your children to do the same! LIVE the faith. Don’t just talk about it.

The Sacrament of Marriage will never change.

The Death of Secularism


images (40)

Its not the Catholic Church that has failed in Ireland with the passing of same sex Marriage. She never can. It is secularism that blinked exposing itself for the terminal cancer it has always been and many souls are suffering because of it. When our Lord was crucified and put to death, the secular world thought that was the end of Him also. False peace, is what same sex Marriage, abortion, and all that contradicts what is Right and Just in our Lord, is.

The secular world has always contradicted our Lord. It does not mean in any way they win or they can change anything. It means our Lord is Right and Just. Stick with Him. Not them. Do not cling to anything but Him. The gates of hell shall not prevail. Pray for those who persecute you. May they who have been swayed by secularism away from the Truth, be converted back to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your country can not save you. Your family can not save you. Your friends can not save you. Only Christ can save you. Place your Faith, Hope and Love back in Jesus Christ and nothing else. Repent. Not only Ireland, but everyone. Return to your first Love. God never changes. “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

There is a good reason for the upcoming Year of Mercy and our Lord Jesus Christ knows what He is doing.

Repent. Our Lord converted my heart when I was far off from Him, when my ideas of life were actually death to my soul. I pray today for the conversion of all who are still far away from Him through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother, Spouse of the most Holy Spirit, intercede for us and bring us into the fullness of the Sacred Heart of your Son, our Lord. Amen

Cardinal Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) in an address during the Eucharistic Congress in 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence … said:
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously
