In the last couple of weeks Washington D.C. has had some terrible things happen. Everyday evil things take place in the darkness of our cities here in the United States. Abortions, murders, rapes and robbery. But these events stand out and all have led to death. Hopefully God is getting a message across through these evil sins.
Just yesterday a man poured gasoline on himself and burned himself to death for (as of yet) no apparent reason. A day before this, Miriam Carey rammed the barrier at the White House and was shot to death while here child was with her in the car. The House Homeland Security spokesman said that she thought the president was trying to communicate with her through radio waves. A few weeks earlier, Aaron Alexis shot 12 people at a Washington Navy Yard and was subsequently shot by police. He also seemed to be hearing voices from what he called, electromagnetic waves. Both Aaron and Miriam are names that come from the Old Testament in the Bible.
Our president and politicians are not listening to God’s Word. But these incidents have gotten their attention as they closed down the Capitol and security became very tight around the White House.
As the budget slim down takes place, it seems they are using it to stop some religious things too. Some priests who say mass for the military have been forbidden from saying masses this weekend because they are paid by the Government to provide Catholic services to the military. I find it sad that they are contracted, paid, to work for the government. As you know I do not believe in all this paying for holy things. Some priests offered to do it voluntarily but were refused.
Fox News reports: “The U.S. military has furloughed as many as 50 Catholic chaplains due to the partial suspension of government services, banning them from celebrating weekend Mass. At least one chaplain was told that if he engaged in any ministry activity, he would be subjected to disciplinary action.”
In all this, we know that behind all the terrible things happening in the Church and the world, God is still real and acting. Sin has its consequences, whether people believe in the concept of sin or not. Maybe we should change the word sin to absurd violent acts. But then that exclude abortion because it is not considered an absurd violent act. Yesterday I saw a beautiful new black motorcycle with a very large skull attached to the back seat facing cars behind it. The owner was proud to proclaim his love for Black Death. Why are we so afraid to proclaim our love for white life coming from our Catholic faith?
We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to know the truth “that sin leads to violence, wars and pain”. When Mary appeared at Fatima she said that if we pray and make sacrifices, we will have peace. If the pope, in union with all the bishops, consecrates Russia to her Immaculate Heart, there would be a period of peace. When will enough be enough.
We can do something by offering up our daily duties and trials in reparation for all the rebellion against God’s laws. We can pray the Holy Rosary. October 7th. is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. When Pope Pius V got everyone to pray the Holy Rosary in 1571, the muslims were defeated and peace began to reign again in the Mediterranean Sea and Europe again. Isn’t wonderful to know that God is on our side and we are on His side. God’s side wants love, peace, unity and life.
I want to ask all of you reading this to try to organize a traditional gathering to pray the 15 decade Holy Rosary on October 7th. Then have a celebration afterwards by a simple pot luck dinner. Make the event as grand as you can or as simple as you can. What is important is that we pray the 15 decades of the Holy Rosary for peace in our Church, families and world. Mary is very appreciative of any act of love and prayer. God will act.
Also try to find YouTube presentations on the Battle of Lepanto 1571. This is one of the most important Catholic events in History.
