I keep reading how, if this Islamization of Europe and North America gets worse, there’s going to be a civil war.  A ‘new Lepanto’ is in the works.  How is that?

What do our ‘conservative Catholic’ friends think of Our Church today?  They treat it as if the true Church Militant has some resemblance to the bishops, buildings, schools, hospitals, and vast majority of people living among them.  They make blurred distinctions between someone who holds the Faith and someone who’d like to pretend to, between a Catholic and a Protestant or a ‘nice person’.  They hurl insults at faithful Catholics shocked at their betrayals crying, “Why do you attack us?  We’re on the same side.  We only differ in ‘strategy!”

Why is it every atrocity a liberal Catholic contrives is always some strategy for success?  Why is their constant promotion of statist power a matter of ‘prudential judgment’ when there’s nothing prudent about it?  How can these esteemed Catholics claim to be soldiers who support the cause of Christ, and the rest of us ‘armchair warriors’, when their entire reputations are contingent upon paychecks from enemy institutions?  Why do our former, pre-Francis friends keep trumpeting their loyalty just as they stick in the knives?

That’s why we could never have a Lepanto today.  A Lepanto requires a Church and a faithful people.  If you can’t draw a clear line between the Church and the thing outside it, how can you understand the Jihadi?  If you can’t see an eternity of Hell awaiting heretics and their abettors, then a thousand years of hopeless Islam on the other side of Christendom seems equally absurd to you.

And don’t hand me that “the Church was ever thus” line. It was not ever thus.  We live in a terrible, terrible world and it’s the Church’s fault first, not the world’s.  The world has always belonged to its prince.  The Church, as it was ever thus, was absolutely necessary to the integrity of civilization.  Even at its decaying frontiers, its healthy proximity infused some grace.  That was then.

Francis is not a pope of Lepanto.  He’s not even a Catholic. He’s not a repentant Peter.  He’s a Judas.  He may as well wear a turban because he’s done nothing but please the ruthless followers of Muhammad, giving them everything they want, swinging his clumsy rhetorical club at any Catholic who gets in their way.  He oversees distribution of many millions of state-funded dollars worldwide for Islamization of once-Catholic communities. That is his Church and it’s not yours or Christ’s.

No.  This isn’t Lepanto.  This is what happens, what has always happened, to Christian societies whose bishops fail, since the time Our Lord first permitted Islam to arise and become the fate of their abandoned sheep.

I’m sorry, but if you want to have a Lepanto, you have to have a Church.

 

 

 

14 Thoughts on “There’ll be no Lepanto so long as there’s a false Church

  1. Good Lord in Heaven above hear our prayers we are begging You! What has become of the Church, where is She? This is horrible! A horrible horrible waking nightmare. We have no Pope!!!

  2. The Pope is still Benedict whose “abdication” is invalid and according to media revelations (and even his own statement upon taking the throne) as well as approved prophecy, forced. “Pray that I don’t flee for fear of the wolves.”

    The visible Church is where the true Faith is practiced whole and entire, without an iota of compromise and therefore without having to be silent or tip-toe regarding what’s before us. One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. Find that place. Right now it’s looking like Independent, non-sedevacantist chapels.

      I am sorry to bust your bubble but Benedict didnt practice the true faith either. Who do you think started the comcessions to the Lutherans?

    I would also like to ask Anne, why she excludes sedevacantists from the traditional independent true faith? Are they validly ordained? Do they say the true mass? Do they teach the faith as it was handed down? Do they point out all the errors of the concilior church? I myself at this point am so confused by what I hear coming from Rome that I no longer discount any traditional opinion that can explain what went wrong, when, or how.

  4. Questions asked of Saint Bernadette:

    Did you receive, in the grotto of Lourdes, or after then, any revelations related to the future and fate of France? Did not the Blessed Virgin deliver any warning for France, any threats?
    – No
    – The Prussians are at our gates; does that not cause you any fear?
    – No.
    – There is thus nothing to fear?
    – I only fear bad Catholics.
    – You do not fear anything else?
    – No, nothing else.

    Here is what’s not fair.
    What’s not fair is that no one is willing to offer advice to new Catholics. After RCIA you are pretty much on your own, finding a parish, establishing a weekly mass schedule, etc. Then along comes an arch-heretic called Francis, and a monster wrench is tossed into the works. All the churches have big pictures of him in the foyer. I can’t attend mass because of this false Pope and I feel very guilty because of it. I don’t know what to do. No one seems to want to talk about this. Anyone?

    Doug,

    My wife and I were baptized 10 years ago just before Pope Benedict came along. He seemed to be trying to move the church in the right direction. When the quisling was elected in 2013 the change in tenor and direction was immediately apparent. We have decided to stay in our NO church for now but we go once a month to a TLM. We pray constantly for guidance…..and it comes…….eventually. Don’t be impatient…..that’s Satan whispering in your ear. For now be happy that YOU were called…..that’s a blessing not many receive in this world, Doug. Pray, be strong and wait for the Lord.
