As the ‘Obama-nation’ nears, priests sound alarm
By Matt C. Abbott
(excerpt)
Father Richard Perozich, of the San Diego, Calif., Catholic diocese:
‘Leave me alone, please!’This is not an uncommon attitude from time to time among us Catholics when we hear an exhortation to belief, to action in a homily or an instruction from the Holy Father, the bishop, or the pastor of our parish when this exhortation challenges our current attitude in life which imprisons us while the Church offers us true freedom in Jesus. Another retort is, ‘Why are you bothering me with this? There are more important issues in the world.”Above all things I value my freedom and your freedom. Freedom exists in being able to have power, possessions, and prestige. Freedom exists in being able to go where you want to go when you want to do it. Freedom means being able to think with the mind of God, exercise your skills, express your ideas at least privately and most of the time publicly as well. While freedom can be taken from us in our power, possessions and prestige, our physical liberty and our rights by the state or by a criminal, it never can be taken from us in our soul. We are still ultimately free persons when we have the attitude of Jesus, think with the mind of Jesus, and love with the heart of Jesus, even if we are limited by the state or by evil men and women from exercising our will in Jesus.’While we may not be in jail (at least at the moment), under house arrest, or in jeopardy of losing our personal liberty today, we are not truly free from attacks with the goal of domination of us by other people, the devil, and the passions when they are not in accord with the order of God.’When Catholics are urged to vote Catholic, some of us think we are being pressured by the Church, our freedom threatened by the Church. These Catholics respond that in America we have separation of church and state.’What we really have constitutionally is freedom to express our religion and that Congress only cannot establish one denomination or religion as the state religion.’Yet the state is encroaching on our religious beliefs, our freedom by passing laws which indoctrinate us, penalize us for non conformity, and take away our liberty. One law builds on another until a prison of thought and action is formed against us Christian believers. The state intertwines itself with religion, silences religious belief, and there is no separation any more.’The chief agents of this silencing of religion have been Catholic politicians who accept money and praise from special interest groups. These Catholics have abandoned faith and us who elected them, and are slaves to people with evil ideas.’The evils seeking dominance in our culture are abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and homosexual activity. No Catholic politician can remain Catholic and go to Holy Communion while voting in favor of these. No Catholic in the pew can go to Holy Communion while voting in favor of these politicians and these policies [Father C. Frank Phillips, C.R., pastor of St. John Cantius Parish in Chicago, has said virtually the same on more than one occasion from the pulpit].

‘The evils are well organized. The spirit of evil infects the souls of individuals who put these evils into practice in their lives. These people give over their freedom becoming slaves to these sins. The people doing evil then organize into groups, and begin to force their lifestyles on the rest of us.’First evil forms people into groups to organize and express itself. People then reinvent themselves with new names such as gays and lesbians instead of chaste men and women, or women for choice instead of free women for life, or “progressives” instead of faithful people. Evil then beings to take over in 4 ways: infiltration, indoctrination, intimidation, and imposition.’When we know an unrepentant woman who has killed a child through abortion, we feel horror for her act and for the child, but also sorrow for her. We want her to feel better. We let her infiltrate through telling her story as to why she aborted. Then she begins to indoctrinate us in the necessity of freedom of choice. She begins to intimidate us with accusations of intolerance and hate. Finally she and her politicians impose laws on us which require us to accept it and practice it, such as medical students who must learn this to become doctors now in California’When we know persons with same sex attractions who have not learned to master chastity, we feel sorry for them. We want them to feel better. They infiltrate by asking for tolerance. They reinvent themselves saying that this is who they are. They indoctrinate with false ideas that they are genetically created this way, that they cannot change, that their sex is just as good as, or even better than, normal people because they don’t create overpopulation. They intimidate, calling us bigots, hate-filled people, intolerant. Finally they impose laws forcing us to learn about their sinful lifestyle, to accept it, to take away our freedoms if we don’t accept it, to teach this as normal in schools, nursing programs, to celebrate it publicly in parades, schools, and the work place as ‘diversity’ when in fact it is perversity.’Famous people with diseases come on TV infiltrating our thinking through sympathy saying that we need to kill embryos so they can get better. They indoctrinate us saying that this is the only way. They intimidate through ridicule of other methods and of the people of life and faith who try to save the embryos. Finally they impose laws, often through Catholic politicians to spend your money to kill embryos for research. Others do the same with euthanasia. My health may not always be perfect, but I don’t want to live in slavery in this world by taking the life of another in order to do so. This experimentation reaches its ultimate perversion in cloning of embryos, experimentation combining human and animal research.’Unfortunately we hear the saying, ‘It’s the economy, stupid.’ In a sense this is correct because losing one’s financial freedom and security may be a greater fear than losing deeper liberties of the soul. Losing the soul, however, is the worst reality.’Jesus came to give us the truth that will set us free. He asks us Catholics to maintain that freedom. Look carefully at your politicians. Do not let them deceive you by telling you that they are Catholic when they vote against the Catholic Faith.’Like it or not, freedoms are being taken away in politics. There is no longer separation of Church and state. The state is taking over your life and freedom, making you a slave to evil.’

Mary is a "woman of the Eucharist" – Pope Benedict XVI

Posted on February 13, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |


“Mary is a model of total self-abandonment to the will of God,” he said. “To reflect upon the Immaculate Conception of Mary is thus to allow oneself to be attracted by the ‘yes’ that joined her wonderfully to the mission of Christ, the redeemer of humanity.

“It is to allow oneself to be taken and led by her hand to pronounce in one’s turn ‘fiat’ to the will of God, with all one’s existence interwoven with joys and sadness, hopes and disappointments, in the awareness that tribulations, pain and suffering make rich the meaning of our pilgrimage on earth.”

“One cannot contemplate Mary without being attracted by Christ,” continued Benedict XVI, “and one cannot look at Christ without immediately perceiving the presence of Mary. There is an indissoluble link between the Mother and the Son, generated in her womb by work of the Holy Spirit, and this link we perceive, in a mysterious way, in the sacrament of the Eucharist.”

Mary is a “woman of the Eucharist,” noted the Pope, explaining that this why at Lourdes the devotion to the Virgin Mother “is joined to a strong and constant reference” to the sacrament.

16th World Day of the Sick- message of Pope Benedict XVI

Posted on February 13, 2009. Filed under: Christianity, Pope Benedict XVI, Religion and Spirituality |

Message for World Day of the Sick

VATICAN CITY, JAN. 22, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Pain is the door by which the faithful can enter into the mystery of redemption, and reach with Christ peace and happiness, says Benedict XVI.

The Pope said this in his message for the 16th World Day of the Sick, to be celebrated on the diocesan level Feb. 11, which has as its theme “The Eucharist, Lourdes and Pastoral Care for the Sick”

The Holy Father said the theme connects three events of the Church — the World Day of the Sick, the 150th anniversary of the Marian apparitions at Lourdes, and the celebration of the International Eucharistic Congress, to be held Jun 15-22 in Quebec City.

By contemplating the mystery of the Eucharist in connection with the World Day of the Sick, said the Pontiff, “not only will the actual participation of human suffering in the salvific work of God be celebrated, but the valuable fruits promised to those who believe can in a certain sense be enjoyed.”

“Thus pain,” he added, “received with faith, becomes the door by which to enter the mystery of the redemptive suffering of Jesus and to reach with him the peace and the happiness of his resurrection.”

He also said that reflecting on the three events is “a remarkable opportunity to consider the close connection that exists between the mystery of the Eucharist, the role of Mary in the project of salvation and the reality of human pain and suffering.”

Fiat

“Mary is a model of total self-abandonment to the will of God,” he said. “To reflect upon the Immaculate Conception of Mary is thus to allow oneself to be attracted by the ‘yes’ that joined her wonderfully to the mission of Christ, the redeemer of humanity.

“It is to allow oneself to be taken and led by her hand to pronounce in one’s turn ‘fiat’ to the will of God, with all one’s existence interwoven with joys and sadness, hopes and disappointments, in the awareness that tribulations, pain and suffering make rich the meaning of our pilgrimage on earth.”

“One cannot contemplate Mary without being attracted by Christ,” continued Benedict XVI, “and one cannot look at Christ without immediately perceiving the presence of Mary. There is an indissoluble link between the Mother and the Son, generated in her womb by work of the Holy Spirit, and this link we perceive, in a mysterious way, in the sacrament of the Eucharist.”

Mary is a “woman of the Eucharist,” noted the Pope, explaining that this why at Lourdes the devotion to the Virgin Mother “is joined to a strong and constant reference” to the sacrament.

The Pontiff continued: “The presence of many sick pilgrims in Lourdes, and of the volunteers who accompany them, helps us to reflect on the maternal and tender care that the Virgin expresses toward human pain and suffering.

“Mary suffers with those who are in affliction, with them she hopes, and she is their comfort, supporting them with her maternal help.”

Gift

Speaking of the International Eucharistic Congress in Canada, the Holy Father said the event “will be an opportunity to worship Jesus Christ present in the sacrament of the altar, to entrust ourselves to him as hope that does not disappoint, to receive him as that medicine of immortality which heals the body and the spirit.”

He said the theme of the congress — “The Eucharist, Gift of God for the Life of the World” — emphasizes how the Eucharist is the gift that the Father makes to the world of His only Son, incarnated and crucified.”

Benedict XVI continued: “It is specifically from the Eucharist that pastoral care in health must draw the necessary spiritual strength to come effectively to man’s aid and to help him to understand the salvific value of his own suffering.

“Mysteriously united to Christ, the man who suffers with love and meek self-abandonment to the will of God becomes a living offering for the salvation of the world.”

Rabbi Speaks on Pope Benedict Controversy: Leftist Catholics Using Jews to Attack the Pope
Says, “church hierarchy should take strong action in dealing with this type of insurrection”
The dissident, leftist movement in the Catholic Church over the last forty years has severely undermined the teaching of the Catholic Church on the moral teachings on life and family, [fantastic!] a prominent US Orthodox rabbi told LifeSiteNews.com. Rabbi Yehuda Levin, the head of a group of 800 Orthodox rabbis in the US and Canada, also dismissed the accusations that the Holy See had not sufficiently distanced itself from the comments made by Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) on the Holocaust.
