On A Band-Aid Being Heritical

As the Synod continues to go on in Rome and as I read the response to it by the bloggers, one thing of the main things that people are trying to do is trying to put a big bandage on the giant boo-boo.  This boo-boo (or as I like to call it: HERESY) isn’t some scrape that happened on the way to full “enlightenment,” it is a cancer that is eating out the very heart and soul of our faith.

You see, God doesn’t like cancerous limbs.  In John 15, Jesus’ says those that don’t produce fruit will be cut off.  The cutting off, isn’t some monstrous evil thing, it is to protect the body from the cancerous cell that is trying to poison the root. If this cancer is allowed to continue, it will corrupt the root. The time is long since passed to beat around the bush concerning what we need to do.  The Catholic Church is in a state of Crisis not seen since the great Arian Crisis and our actions have to rise to the occasion.

I contend, this crisis isn’t new and the church has been in this crisis for nearly 50 years now, but it seems, that by God’s divine mercy, people are slowly starting to see it for what it is.  This crisis isn’t just about having a Mass said in Latin, it is about the entire mindset of the church.  This crisis is bringing to a head the traditional understanding of the Faith delivered and the modernistic, humanistic, heretical doctrines of man being the center of all that has been espoused in since the Second Vatican Council.

The mindset of tradition and modernism are diametrically opposed and there can be no synthesis of the two.  We can’t blend them.  The last 50 years of the church prove this out.  Currently, the prelates in Rome are discussing how to “pastorally” allow something God forbids.  HOW DARE THEY!  The wolves are circling the sheep fold “Seeking Whom They Can Devour.”

How can we stop this?  Praying and fasting are some of the ways along with recognizing where we have allowed modernism to creep into our own lives.  We must, completely, totally, and without reserve accept the Faith that was delivered and believed by all everywhere at whatever personal cost this might cause us and then let the chips fall where they will.   As long as we accept any heresy, the seed of that heresy will remain and will sprout forth its ugly fruit sometime in the future.  The time for band-aids has past.  The church militant needs to say, “NOT ON MY WATCH.”

  1. Amen.

    This ordeal is weighing me down. It hurts. I need to share this burden with our Lord Jesus Christ with steadfast faith, and joyful hope. I need to abide fully in His Love. It’s been a battle. Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.

  2. I recently joined the church, and it pains me so much to see it being ripped apart from the inside out.

    Demands for change begin in the government, and of course end with the church.

    I wonder how many will stand to defend the doctrine and defend the church, and how many will run it over?

  3. Last year we moved about an hour away from our church. Our former church which is quite a distance to drive said the Mass in Latin. About three months ago, I receive an email from a parishioner from the former church stating that one of the priests will be moving to a church near my new home and will be saying the Mass in Latin. I was thrilled to hear the news.

    A few days ago, we had to go down to the church for an unrelated matter. My husband asked about the Latin Mass. The parishioner’s at this church said the priest was no longer saying Mass at the church. In fact, he was ordered by the parish priest to stop saying the Latin Mass. Despite external pressure, he refused to stop saying the Latin Mass. Eventually,(most likely by the Catholic hierarchy) he was removed from the parish.

    It was very upsetting to me and I felt personally attacked for my faith. How can a parish that allows the Spanish Mass not allow the Latin Mass (the ancient language of the church)? Unfortunately, I do not even know what a “Catholic” is anymore. In 40 years, I have seen the church become unrecognizable. There are Catholics who believe in abortion. They vote for political candidates who support abortion. How can this be? There are political figures who support abortion, given communion by Pope Francis. Clearly, these are well known officials who should be excommunicated.

    I have to admit that even though I stand strong in my faith, there are days that I feel weak and deflated. It is very sad that many Catholic children will never know the true faith.

    1. “There are Catholics who believe in abortion. They vote for political candidates who support abortion. How can this be? There are political figures who support abortion, given communion by Pope Francis. Clearly, these are well known officials who should be excommunicated.”

      You ask how can this be? It’s simple – they are not Catholic. They have rejected the clear teachings of the deposit of faith by their actions in defiance of the Church and are ipso facto excommunicated.
