MEDJUGORJE UPDATE


MEDJUGORJE: THE ELEPHANT IN THE LIVING ROOM

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
...what we are seeing as a result of thirty years of spiritual aphasia, denial, complacency and false charity...is the presence of an ELEPHANT in the living room so to speak...the Elephant is there however due to false charity and false ecumenism people are reticent to broach the matter..in effect we do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings..however the church as a whole suffers...

....the phenomenon of MEDJUGORJE has entrenched itself in many parishes across the world and good honest traditional catholics have seen their pious well intentioned friends become seduced by  this spectre of false piety and raw emotion...since we are told that one of the spiritual acts of mercy is to admonish the sinner ... one out of charity must warn their neighbour...

 



The spiritual works of mercy are:

  • To instruct the ignorant;
  • To counsel the doubtful;
  • To admonish sinners;
  • To bear wrongs patiently;
  • To forgive offences willingly;
  • To comfort the afflicted;
  • To pray for the living and the dead.

 

….our motive which springs from the well of living water which is the pierced side of Christ and symbolic of his mercy…so that with St. Ignatius we may pray..after each communion..

ANIMA CHRISTI

Soul of Christ, sanctify me!
Body of Christ, save me!
Blood of Christ, inebriate me!
Water from the side of Christ, wash me!
Passion of Christ, strengthen me!
O Good Jesus, hear me:
Within Thy wounds hide me;
Permit me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malignant enemy defend m;
In the hour of my death call me,
                                                                And bid me come to Thee,
                                                                That, with Thy saints, I may praise Thee
                                                                For ever and ever. Amen

>>indeed water from the side of Christ wash us<<<

 

… this unity of cause from the one true source must be the impetus for our alms and our almsgiving..mercy be its efficient cause and its final cause divine justice…not to give solely in a material way but to engender all the faculties of the soul and in unison to deliver from the spirit of truth all that is just and due to our neighbor…by providing a reference for proper behavior we set a good example for each other and as St. Francis said…we preach the gospel and if necessary we use words…..indeed just as St. Francis ministered to and washed the lepers we see in a symbolic sense through spiritual acts of mercy we wash the dust and disease of error out of the pores and recesses of our neighbours being…making them clean in a spiritual sense….reproved in correct doctrine and tradition….

....we see that we as good honest traditional catholics have failed to wake our neighbour up out of their slumber...and through our timidity and our sin of omission we have allowed this gross occlusion to cloud the eye of the mystical body of the  Church...in effect MEDJUGORJE is a cataract on the lense of our mind’s eye and so it does not reflect the light of reason onto our mind as well as it should... we have in effect become enablers instead of standing up for truth we have waffled and become luke warm...

 
 
As Jesus told Faustina luke warm catholics he feared the most...

 


Ninth Day
"Today bring to Me the Souls who have become Lukewarm,

and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: 'Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.' For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to my mercy.”

..indeed there are many factors at play and so we cannot say that the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE is the sole fault of the adherents and followers of the messages...indeed the reformation of the mass may be a factor..since included in the prayers after low mass in the tridentine rite are the Hail Mary , Salve Regina(Hail Holy Queen) along with the prayer to St. Michael...these prayers one time were invoked at the end of each mass and after the reformation of the mass to the novus ordo these prayers are not said  anymore...there is nothing wrong with the validity of the form of the Novus Ordo Mass..however the absence of seminal prayers may be an issue... this absence of the spirit of Mary at the mass could be why people who are thirsting for Mary find themselves naturally drawn to these false apparitions to fill a void in their spirituality so to speak..and so MEDJUGORJE arose as a chastisement from God...indeed in one way or another we are all to blame for the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE...let us stand up for truth and united as one faithful body pray for each other in a spirit of thanksgiving and forgiveness...amen
