The Supreme Court Ruling, that forces every state in the United States to ‘marry’ homosexuals, could be said to be the fruit of the Catholic revolution that happened following Vatican II. Believe it or not, before Vatican II, the average Catholic knew what was right and wrong. They may have been living immoral lives, but they were not about to say that the Bible and the Church’s teachings were wrong.
Well do I remember that time. Everything; beliefs, morals, the Bible, the priesthood, the sisterhood, birth control, was up for discussion. I remember the concept that; love was what was important, not laws. All the religious orders began to re-evaluate; their rules, their vows, their habits and their missions.
In July 1967, Fr Hesburgh, (from Notre Dame University), called together a meeting called; ‘Land of the Lakes Conference’ to get rid of Catholicism out of Catholic Universities. All revolutionaries know that the youth like to question things and have change. So the ‘Catholic Universities’ used the vulnerability of the youth to destroy their Catholic faith and beliefs. Remember that these so called ‘Catholic Universities’ have played a large role in the pushing of the homosexual agenda.
When in 1968 Pope Paul VI came out with the encyclical “Humanae Vitae”, the Catholic world went literally insane and rebellious. Many bishops, priests and theologians criticized the prohibition of the use of artificial birth control. But Pope Paul VI had already provoked this rebellion. He had set up a commission, (of which my friends were on), where he had them question if the constant Catholic teaching of not using birth control could be changed. Of course the commission wanted change, wanted couples to be able to detach sex from having children. This leads to homosexual sex without any possibility of reproduction. A man and a man cannot procreate. A woman and a woman cannot either.
All the famous Catholics, like the Kennedy’s, were part of the rebellion too. Margaret Sanger, from Planned (murderhood), Parenthood, used her influence through the Rockefeller’s to change the Catholic teaching that sex was for procreating children.
After the ‘Catholic Revolution’ against Church teachings, came the sexual revolution. It then became ‘normal’ to have sex with anyone before getting married. Priests and nuns were getting married or were coming out of the closet about their homosexual lives. Young men were abuse by homosexual priests. (The majority of the sexual abuse of minors cases come from this time, 1970-90’s).
So we traditional Catholics have the duty to expose Catholic history and the devastation we have personally experience by our own doubting of our faith after Vatican II and all those around us.
We need to keep on stating the facts about what Vatican II has produced;
- Huge decrease in vocations to the priesthood and sisterhood.
- Most priests are old and will soon die.
- Hardly any missionaries left.
- Churches being sold off.
- Billions of dollars paid out of the lay people’s donations for sex abuse law suits.
- Many dioceses going bankrupt.
- Catholic schools being closed down regularly.
- Catholic hospitals no long adhere to Catholic teaching on health care.
- Most of our relatives have left the Catholic faith.
- Millions of Catholics have gone over to heretical churches.
Then remind them that this has happened because ‘catholicism’ was taken off the foundation of Tradition and Holy Scripture and has instead been built on modern human ideas.
Every one that cometh to me, (Jesus), and heareth my words, (Holy Bible), and doth them, I will shew you to whom he is like. He is like to a man building a house, who digged deep, (Tradition), and laid the foundation upon a rock. And when a flood came, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and it could not shake it; for it was founded on a rock. But he that heareth, and doth not, is like to a man building his house upon the earth without a foundation: against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:47-49
So we pray for our Church and our country. But we also know that, before long, the ‘church’ or country built on false teachings and immoral lives, will eventually fall, and the ruin will be great. We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to be trying our best to obey Jesus and His Church.
We can not change the our government. We have little say on changing our Church. But we do have a great deal of say over changing our souls to be purer everyday, with God’s help.
