Not surprised at all!

There is a lot of talk in the media and online about “homosexual networks” even in the Vatican. A Polish priest, Fr. Dariusz Oko release an article on the “Homoheresy“. We were even hit by the news of the resignation of  Cardinal O’Brien, the Archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh. Most people are surprised by this. Even some priests are acting shocked. Since the early 90’s the Church has been hit by lawsuit after lawsuit. Priests and Bishops have fallen from grace, and today a Cardinal is accused of inappropriate behavior some 30 years ago. To all those priests that are in shock, I must say, your head must have been in the sand. Anyone who went through seminary in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s know of the many active homosexuals that walked the halls. Some were put out and others were the fair haired boys. In fact, most of the good seminarians kept their mouths shut, for fear that they would be sent of for psychological evaluation. That’s right, many good men were sent to shrinks or just put of the seminary because they reported being hit on or seeing something that should not have gone on. Thank God the seminaries have been cleaned up, but we are no facing the consequences of those evil years.

Like I said, I’m not surprised at all. Our Lady warned us, no one listened, and now the Lord will clean up the mess Himself.

Let’s have a look at what Our Lady said in Akita, Japan back in the 1970’s.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

So many people are looking for a hidden secret in Fatima, or another part of the secret that was never released. Forget about it! You need look no further than Akita. The apparitions of Akita were approved by the Church after extensive investigation.

Most. Rev. John Shojiro Ito, Bishop of Niigata, Japan, after years of extensive investigation, declares the events of Akita, Japan to be of supernatural origin, and authorizes throughout the entire diocese the veneration of the Holy Mother of Akita.

“On April 22, 1984, after eight years of investigations, after consultation with the Holy See, the messages of Our Lady of Akita were approved by the Bishop of the diocese. In the Japanese village of Akita, a statue of the Madonna, according to the testimony of more than 500 Christians and non-Christians, including the Buddhist mayor of the town, has shed blood, sweat and tears. A nun, Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa has received the stigmata and has received messages from Our Lady.”

Original source is the University of Daton

It is also claimed that Bishop Ito sought the advice of  Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, head of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and received definitive approval.

Who would have thought that we would have seen what we see today. The reality that most will not face is that the sexual abuse crisis in the Church was and is still caused by homosexuals in the clergy.  Michael Voris summarizes the situation in his latest issue of The Vortex.

There is still an opportunity to change the situation.

“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”

Repentance is not just for those who are doing the most despicable things, it’s for us all! We all need to face Our Lord’s call in this Year of Faith – “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.”

  3. Thank you for this post Father. With the rather large meteor that missed the planet this month and the small one (which was 1000 times larger than first estimated – see link) that gave such a powerful warning this month – it is important to recognize that ‘The Fear of God is Pure’.

    So it is the Rosary and the Eucharist just like Saint John Bosco’s vision.

    God bless you Father

  4. Closer to home, here in the Diocese of Providence, yesterday was announced the resignation of Rev. Msgr. John Allard from his post as pastor of Precious Blood and St. Agatha’s parishes.

    What about Cardinal Roger Mahoney from Los Angeles? His participation in the conclave is a scandal in and of itself. He too should resign.

  5. George, I’m not making the connection between a meteor and fathers post. Are you suggesting that it is god expressing his anger at the world? Because go doesn’t work like that

    • Hi Pat,

      I would say that God does use natural occurances to bring us closer to him. People pray more when ‘the Fear of God’ is present. It is healthy and it attunes the soul to penance. Events like this force the mind to consider the end.

      God bless,

      George

    • Are you so sure God doesn’t work like that? Why not cite Sacred Scripture. I can show many instances in the Bible where nature is used a a means to correct man’s infidelity and redirect his course back to God.

  6. Father Jay, you mention the first part of the problem when you say “the sexual abuse crisis in the Church was and is still caused by homosexuals in the clergy” but the second and arguably worse part is the cover-up by church officials who did bury their heads in the sand and simply moved these clergymen around, or otherwise “protected their own” instead of protecting their flock! Also I am not sure of the link between pedophilia and homosexuality.

    In any case I appreciate your candor and please keep up all of your good work for our faith and our Church (with a capital “C”)!

    • John, I agree, another great part of the scandal was either coverup or avoidance of the problem. God is cleaning out His Church from the “filth” as Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus wrote in his Stations of the Cross, the year before his election. “How much filth there is in the Church, and even among those who, in the priesthood, ought to belong entirely to him!” (see the stations here).

      The link between the the abuse crisis and homosexuality is due to the fact the the vast majority were not pedophilia, but ephebophilia. That is the abuse of “mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19”, an act of homosexuality. The major report on the abuse crisis reported this, but it was mostly buried, for fear of the ire of the radical gay activists. Now the other hidden evil is beginning to be exposed for what it is.

      God’s people expect, and have a right to priests who are striving for holiness!

  7. Father the real problem is that the bishops turned a blind eye to this. And no body questioned it. The larger more central issue is that the hierarchy is not always correct. When they are wrong, they are WRONG. And bishops have NOBODY to blame but themselves for the decline of the church in America. The largest archdiocese is in chaos, Los Angeles. And it’s not because of gay priests, it’s because the cardinal ignored crimes against kids! Look a Philadelphia as well. Cardinal bevilaqua was almost arrested for the stuff he ALLOWED to happen. I’m so tired of church leaders complaining about the people who sit in the pews and there behavior.

    • Yes and he also said of his own apostles “and did I not chose all of you – and one of you is a devil” – so we need to be careful not to place ourselves in the position of excessive judgement. Not to excuse the that Judas betrayed our Lord, but so as not to underestimate what long term good may come of this. Good discussion Father.

      God bless.

      George
