Opposing sides in the Communion wars

There are now two sides in the growing battle for souls — those who fight for Christ and those who fight for the anti-Christ.

Fake Catholic Joe Biden

At one time, a person could say they were a Catholic and it was understood they believed everything the Church taught. But that hasn't been the case for quite a while now.

On Friday, Biden was asked what he thought about the possibility of the U.S. bishops preventing him from receiving Holy Communion. He answered, "I don't think that’s gonna happen," and he's probably right.

Given the bishops' track record, 9.9 times out of 10, they have chosen to suppress Catholic Church teaching and compromise the gospel for people who hate the Church and want Her eradicated.

Normalizing Sin

For the last 50-plus years, theological leftists have worked hard to inject their evil doctrines into the minds of young Catholics. They claimed their heretical teachings were Catholic. But the bishops were either a part of the hustle or ignored it and let the evil creep deeply into the Church.

At the slightest possibility of any kind of rebuke, leftists come out in full aggression, bearing their fangs and claws.

Now that leftist Catholicism has been so normalized, it's become the "establishment Catholicism." It's now expected that a Catholic should advocate for a person's so-called choice, whether that has to do with contraception, cohabitation before marriage, abortion or same-sex marriage.

At the slightest possibility of any kind of rebuke, leftists come out in full aggression, bearing their fangs and claws. They've spent the last 50 years being the worst kind of theological bullies. They've left a wreckage of damned souls in their wake and they're not about to let even Christ Himself stand in their way. Their pride would have made the Pharisees of Our Lord's time blush for shame.

Plenty of 'What Ifs'

Will the bishops — who have allowed the normalization of Communion in the hand, unnecessary use of extraordinary ministers and liturgical banalities — suddenly expect that people receive Our Lord worthily?

What about the bishops who refuse to protect the Blessed Sacrament? Will other bishops actually speak out and denounce them or will it be more "good ol' boy's club" secrecy?

There's still lots of time for several scenarios to play out. What if the document actually has some teeth to it and actually directs that bishops defend Church law and the Holy Eucharist?

The lavender-miter mafia will then run to Rome. Chicago's archbishop, Cdl. Blase Cupich, one of the great behind-the-scenes influencers, will try to get Pope Francis involved. 

If bishops and priests are not protecting the Blessed Sacrament, then they are doing the work of their father, Satan.

Would the pope stand up for the doctrine of the Holy Eucharist? He has already claimed, "The Eucharist is not the reward of saints, but the bread of sinners" — a familiar straw man to beat up on that he invoked as recently as June.

Heavenly Certainty

Our Lady of Akita said:

The work of the Devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals and bishops against other bishops. ... The Church will be full of those who accept compromises, and the Devil will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

If bishops and priests are not protecting the Blessed Sacrament, then they are doing the work of their father, Satan.

It's becoming more and more evident that only Our Lady will destroy the evil of this age, even the evil in the Church. But faithful souls must still pray, sacrifice and be the soldiers God has called them to be. Then, when Our Lady's Immaculate Heart triumphs, faithful and true Catholics will rejoice in her victory.
