At the Remnant Hilary White ask the important question, “What do we do now?”
More people are asking, what are we going to do when Pope Francis or the national bishops’ conference or the local bishop, orders all the priests to formally and publicly declare that they are willing to desecrate the Holy Eucharist? We can dismiss the objection that “this is already being done all over world, so what difference will it make?” Of course it is, and everyone knows that it was by the Church’s leadership making a habit of turning a blind eye to this horrifying abuse that we now find ourselves in this dreadful situation.
But the proposal at hand is qualitatively different. If Kasper and his followers (and his leaders) have their way, the abuse will become a universal norm. A decree, will be issued from the highest authorities that will require all priests everywhere to agree to betray Christ in this manner in a systematic, programmatic way, to formally assent to it as a precondition of their continuing to act as priests. Priests, all priests everywhere, will be required to at least be willing to desecrate the Holy Eucharist, to commit the grave sin of sacrilege.
At what point do we stop and say, “That’s enough. My obedience to the heretical hierarchy is not required here. It’s resistance that the Lord wants from me.”
I suppose a lot of people out there have refused to really think unflinchingly, to reason logically, where the Vatican II revolution was going to go, and are now shocked that it has gone where we Traditionalists had always said it would go: to disaster. Global catastrophe. But we seem to be very close to that ultimate conclusion.
“Schism” used to be a word one heard only either in history books or on the websites of the wackier sedevacantists. But now, and in an astonishingly short time, we are seeing some very prominent people using the “S-word” right out loud. So I don’t feel too bad voicing the same fear now that we appear to have moved into Phase II of a clearly deliberately planned and expertly executed revolution.
Why is it that if you see a hand or a plan in some major development, you’re paranoid; a conspiracy theorist? Is it so irrational that the world’s movements have leaders, that the strong herd the weak, or that singular and unnatural things like gay marriage or euthanasia don’t just pop-up worldwide all at the same time for no reason?
Everything has to have been a normal evolution I suppose, a forward motion? I don’t agree. When the leadership of the Catholic Church for the first time in history, begins to share more goals with the powers of the world than they do with their own saints and teachings, working hand in hand either consciously or foolishly; you must assume that they are being leveraged, compromised somehow from the outside.
White sees this latest swing as a fatal blow. Where will the Church be when this comes to pass?
Once they have overturned the actual words of Christ Himself as recorded plainly in the Gospel, all bets are off, and absolutely anything becomes a target. All the teachings of the Church will automatically, logically and inescapably, be rendered merely deterministic “rules” to be discarded at will. As many others are saying, the entire edifice of the Catholic religion is at stake, starting with the twin pillars of the Eucharist and the priesthood.
In the end, the Church Militant, united in grace, is the only real Church. The more closely the visible Church approximates that, the more pure and living it will be. Outside the Faith due to sin or heresy there is no true Church, so we don’t need to consider it so. If most of the hierarchy is doctrinally heretical or manifested in practice, they’re not Catholic.
We must find a way to let the true Church Militant fight and grow, and let the morbid Church die.
