Catholics: What do we do? How do we hold out?

A friend and I were chit chatting this evening.  We were lamenting about how most people lack the knowledge and wisdom necessary to overturn the present corruption that has infested both secular government, as well as the Church hierarchy.

We recalled the latest news of our pope's right hand man, that he was involved in throwing a cocaine-fueled gay orgy in the Vatican a couple of months ago.  We lamented about something Ann Barnhardt recently related to us all, when she reported from a Vatican source that
there is now a resignation to the fact that the infiltration of sodomites and Freemasons  is so severe that it is not humanly possible to remove the infiltration. This can ONLY be solved by supernatural means, which all understand means a Sodom and Gomorrah type event, except on a much, much larger scale. Massive destruction, with many, many people dying on a level never before seen by mankind, just as the Blessed Mother has warned so many times, particularly over the past century.
There are those who blow this kind of news off and roll their eyes, scoffing, and telling us the world has always been this way.  It's always been like this.  

But history has not always been like this.  It has never been this bad.  Though there is an immense availability of knowledge these days, there is hardly a scrap of wisdom to be found in people.  

My friend and I wish that authority would come to its senses and grab hold of the reins, putting the West back to right.  But that will not happen.

What to do while waiting for the asteroid?

Well? What now, then?  

First, I want to tell you about two definitions.  

#1. Secular clergy - Clergy who are engaged for the most part in pastoral work and who are not members of a religious institute. They are not bound by a vow of poverty or community life. But their celibacy, in the Latin Church, is under solemn oath and they promise obedience to a bishop as their immediate superior under the Pope.

#2. Religious communities - These are monks and nuns, orders, and the small folks that you don't hear about too much.  There are many different kinds of religious communities: apostolic communities, contemplative, monastic, and cloistered communities, missionary communities, motherhouses, knighthood orders, and more.

Now, considering these two important definitions, I would like to repeat what the Virgin Mary told us in Ecuador 400 years ago.  I gave you this quote last week, but it is crucial to drive this point home.  

Our Lady of Good Success foretold of these very times that we are living in.  But tonight, specifically, I want to again focus on this paragraph:
"Religious communities will remain to sustain the Church and work with courage for the salvation of souls.… The secular clergy will fall far short of what is expected of them because they will not pursue their sacred duty. Losing the divine compass, they will stray from the way of priestly ministry mapped out for them by God and will become devoted to money, seeking it too earnestly."
Does this not clearly speak to the troubled times we Catholics are dealing with this very week?  Throughout the Church hierarchy, on the whole, from priests all the way up to the pope, we have been witnessing the secular clergy "fall short" of what we need from them.  And, in fact, perhaps the Holy Mother was making an understatement.  I would argue the clergy has fallen quite far from their duties.  Not all of them.  But a majority?  That's arguable.  

And so, as the secular clergy fails, let me now direct you to the religious communities.  Once again, I want to direct you to what Hilary White said in one of her recent Remnant articles.  In it, she makes a list of "the holdouts."  White is referring to those religious communities that I am referring to, and to whom the Holy Mother was referring.  White calls them "The little guys out here in the big and little pockets of resistance."  She goes through a list of religious orders and Catholic organizations who are still holding the line.  White is showing us those religious communities that the Holy Mother talked about, and who can help us retain our sanity through the times to come.  

If you need to know who to support with your tithe money, your presence, and your public support, might I suggest you turn to the religious communities for your inspiration?

Secular clergy falls short, but religious communities can sustain us.

As for you people who disregard prophecy and private revelation, pay no heed to this article.  I am but a silly fool applying perceived words from Heaven to the present reality.  No doubt, you consider it a frivolous exercise.

  1. The claim it has never been this seems to be one of the lynch pins. A Catholic I respect in many ways said there has always been a period of confusion following a council (he also mentioned to me that in one large city with many parishes he knows well that only two could be trusted for properly administering confession: also forget about actual penances beyond 3 hail marys).

    Another said that its not Catholic to dwell on such matters since Mary would not have, but would have just prayed and trusted (I didn't get a chance to bring up the flight to Egypt).

    Those are the most knowledgeable that I know. I don't think its hard to prove because we've probably passed the Arian heresy in severity now.

  2. I agree completely with you Laramie. We have reached a point where divine assistance (intervention) is necessary. Of course, God is already assisting us but seems to have lost the attention of most of the clergy.

    About twenty five years ago, the order priest in charge of seeking permission from our Archdiocese to build an orthodox Catholic
    school said after 7 years of trying: "that if God wanted this school He was going to have to help". Not long after this the Archbishop was transferred to the Vatican and a new Archbishop approved the project which swiftly completed. God wants us to ask him for help. It is only prideful to think we can do it ourselves.

  4. Not to pull the carpet out from under you, but do you care how this all sounds and looks to "protestants"?

    Just kidding.(That's more of a rhetorical question). Even I understand enough about group dynamics to know that groups of people tend to not care what their perceived inferiors think. The real question: What should we think of you? When there's always a scandal and just around the corner, a prophecy validating it somehow. Somehow--no matter how many kids get raped--it was all just part of the plan and mandated by some divine insight and therefore no one should really panic about it. Maybe the Joker was right.
