The crisis in the Church is a focused attack on our Eucharistic Lord involving sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion, first by contracepting couples and now by the divorced and civilly remarried. There's even a strong push being made to allow active homosexuals the right to commit such sacrilege.

During this spiritual storm, Our Lord appears to be asleep in the Barque of Peter — asleep in the boat with the Apostles as a fierce storm threatened to sink it. Mark 4:37–40 recounts the incident:

And there arose a great squall and the waves were beating into the boat, so that the boat was now filling. And He himself was in the stern of the boat on the cushion asleep. And they woke Him and said to him, "Master, does it not concern Thee that we are perishing?" Then rising up, He rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind fell and there came a great calm. And He said to them, "Why are you fearful? Are you still without faith?


In a recent Vortex, Michael Voris acknowledged the crisis in the Church is so bad that only Our Lord can solve it. After Church Militant broke the story that the practice of allowing Holy Communion to the divorced and civilly remarried has seemingly been given some official status, Voris responded, "Make every effort ... to get in front of our Blessed Lord either in the adoration chapel or before Him in the tabernacle ... and pray in all earnestness that He awakens in the boat and calms this storm."

He spoke with a sense of urgency: "It is critical that those who do believe in Our Lord's Real Presence in the Eucharist get in front of Him as soon as possible and plead for Him to intervene. He is there waiting for you to call on Him to intercede."

Catholics need to present their problems to Heaven and let Heaven provide the solutions. "However Heaven goes about calming this storm is for Heaven to decide," said Voris. "Do not tell Him what to do or how to do it, merely plead before Him."
