The Devil in Rome

October 17, 2015  0


Let's lay it out as plain as day in the most stark spiritual terms we can: The Devil is here in Rome for the Synod on the Family.

He has shown up with his bag full of his usual tricks of lies, weakness, distortions, half-truths, intellectual poison, and he is here able to operate because of his children that are doing his will. Recall when Our Blessed Lord confronted the religious distorters of his day, the Pharisees. He leveled the seven-fold indictment against them, thundered at them How can any of you escape damnation? and then called them exactly what they are: Satan’s children.

Recall further back in Genesis, all the way back, when God said to the serpent, "I will put enmity between your offspring and Hers" — the Woman. Satan has offspring. You bet he does. Father John Hardon, Servant of God, before his death in 2000, rightfully and aptly warned all Catholics with ears to hear that just as Our Lord had and has disciples, so too does Satan. And many of them have arrived here in Rome in the robes of Judas. The diabolical is extraordinarily active at this Synod.

From the documents of the Synod, most notably the Instrumentum Laboris — almost totally absent any Catholicity, yet full of worldly vocabulary — to the promoters of such poison in the persons of Cdl. Lorenzo Baldisseri, Abp. Bruno Forte, Cdl. Donald Wuerl, Cdl. Daneels, Cdl. John Dew, Abp. Paul Andre Durocher, Fr. Thomas Rosica and a host of others. These men all have the devil for their father because as Jesus said, they do their father's will. "He was a murderer from the beginning and has no truth in him. When he lies he speaks according to his nature for he is a liar and the father of lies."

They desire the acceptance of homosexuality and some kind of blessed status for it in the Church. If you think this is extreme, allow us to ask: Do you think that Satan would not attempt to do this? Would he not want to see this achieved, especially right here at the heart of the Church? Do you think it too much of an overreach on the part of the demonic? If you think that, then you don't understand the demonic.

There is evil here in Rome, evil being orchestrated by sons of Satan who have no love for Our Lord, no love for the Faith. They want an outcome; that's it — sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion. That's it. They will then use that to co-opt the entire teaching on sexuality. If you can give Holy Communion to people living in adulterous situations in the name of mercy, why couldn't you also give Holy Communion to young couples cohabiting, homosexual couples, and every other imaginable immoral sexual practice? If mercy is the cover, the argument will be made in a New York heartbeat that those people are also in need of mercy, and by the logic flowing from this Synod, they would be right.

There are some bishops here who get this. They understand what's going on. Cardinal Pell, Cdl. Peter Erdo, Abp. Stefan Gadecki, and so forth. But it's safe to say two things: one, they are outnumbered, and two, they are also outmaneuvered. The sons of Satan occupy most of the key administrative positions. They have the numbers on their side to gain at least some kind of acceptance of this poison, if not universally, then at least regionally. And that's because many of the bishops here are poorly formed and lack proper theological training or understanding. Yes — bishops!

That point was driven home by one of their own a few days ago. Poland’s Archbishop Henryk Hoser said it's clear to him that other bishops don't know Church teaching on these matters because of what they don't talk about. So the bishops who have given themselves over to the devil — intentionally or not, it doesn't really matter — have now become his instruments for convincing the poorly trained and poorly formed bishops (of even whom Pope Benedict talked about in his pre-Pope days). These will be used to secure what he wants.

The loss of supernatural faith among some of the shepherds here is stunning. It's actually beyond words. For these men, this is essentially a power-grab to twist the perception of Church teaching. And the sad reality is long before they arrived in Rome, they had already set the stage with decades of horrible formation on the ground in parishes all over the world. How many parishes every Sunday see divorced and remarried couples come up to Holy Communion, and everyone knows it? How many parishes have gay clubs and so-called ministries that jettison Church teaching with a wink and a nod?

This is horrible. Here's the goal of all this talk about more welcoming language and inclusive language and preparing ignorant Catholics to be receptive of all this change: The gay-positive element among these various prelates wants the language about homosexuality out of the Catechism. The specific goal is the removal of these lines :

Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. (2357)

The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered ... . (2358)

This is the brass ring for many of these men. They will not get it at this Synod, but they are using this Synod as preparation for that goal. That language has bothered the whole gay contingent in the Church since it appeared when the Catechism was published in 1992.

Be very certain my fellow Catholics of the machinations going on behind the scenes here. Pray your Rosary fervently. While a number of these men are offspring of the serpent, never forget that you are offspring of the Woman.
