MEDJUGORJE NEWS: THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS....


MEDJUGORJE NEWS: The Road to Hell is Paved with Good intentions...

 
  ....now as good Christian souls we all desire for our good end...by the action of our will we intend good for our neighbour and good for ourselves..if we are diligently aspiring to profess to a life consigned to a path illuminated by charity....

 
...since intention is an action of the will and so it follows that the will itself manages and moves all the powers of the soul each towards its respective end then we may say that a good intention intends to move the soul towards the object of its desire as it knows it to be good in itself...however in order to achieve proper attainment of the good as it is in reality as the good emanates from God in his truth the initial intention must have some reference in knowledge...hence we have faith and reason....and so an intention which presupposes knowledge based in presumption is blind...to intend for the good out of ignorance indeed can lead us into all sorts of prevarications and insubordinate orders of inclemency....and finally ending in hell which is the utter impossibility of reason....

 ......As Peter Abelard says in his Ethics (Know Thyself)....

 
 There are those who think intention is good or right, as often as one believes he is acting well and that that which he does pleases God; as those men did who persecuted the martyrs of which the Truth declares itself in the Gospel, “The time cometh that whosoever killeth you will thinketh that he doeth God a service.”  Of the ignorance of such the Apostle says with compassion,” I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge,” that is they show great fervor and desire in doing those things which they believe please God;  but because in this zeal or desire of their hearts they are deceived, their intention is erroneous, nor is the eye of their heart single, that it may see clearly, that is, guard itself from error. The Lord took pains, therefore, when he distinguished acts according to righteous or unrighteous intentions, to call the eye of the mind, that is the intention, single, and, so to speak, clear of dirt, that it might see clearly, or conversely dark, when he said, “ If thine eye be single , thy whole body shall be full of light.” That is if the intention be right, the whole mass of acts, which issue thence and which in the fashion of things corporeal may be seen, will be worthy of light, that is good.

...indeed at MEDJUGORJE we have proponents who are in a state of material heresy in effect killing spiritually the good name of the local Ordinary..and through the commission feel they are doing God a service .. out of their inveterate ignorance such proponents feel they are doing a good deed and a service to the church triumvirate as a whole...

 ....if we apply this analysis to the circumstances surrounding the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE...one will see that many adherents are basing the intention of their volition upon presupposition rather than knowledge of Church decorum and so strife and duress ensues...people are committing the assent of their faith and reason to untested spirits...

the calamity of religious and lay support which undermines the local dicastery of this place will have ramifications for many years to come..let us all regard our own state of recollection and pray for God to lead us in the most economical way according to our vocation....amen
