MEDJUGORJE: THE DEVIL, THE FOOL & THE HANGED MAN


MEDJUGORJE: THE DEVIL THE FOOL & THE HANGED MAN
 

....The fool and the hanged man are both major arcane cards from the deck of Tarot whose author is the spirit of self or I or the Devil ..these cards depict stages of self discovery in our life’s journey..of course this is sorcery and condemned as error however the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE contains many new age notions directly related to a theology of "feel-goodism," "universal tolerance," and "moral relativism."...and this is repugnant to a life of faith and the way of the cross which Jesus talks about in his Gospels..and since MEDJUGORJE is influenced by an occult hegemony we see many similarities between the psychology of the Tarot symbolism and the spirituality seen in MEDJUGORJE...

 
 
..so we draw the parallel between the fool who seeks to know by his own frail light of a fallen nature and the the devil who is an enemy of the true Church and the hanged man who lives for himself..a morally relative truth is his guide... and whose course of action is unconventional and never untrue to itself..a selfish spirituality which sacrifices only for some private benefit this is an enemy to true charity which lives for the Church of Christ...


 
..Card zero or the beginning of life or the spiritual journey or false conversion....the Fool.... marks the beginning of the journey as an impetuous child..a slave to whims desires and emotions..one who has squandered reason for experience and subjectivity… a fool is green and curious mercurial and eager…. The message of the fool is one of untraditional choices..spurning the establishment… such a one lives in the moment, filled with wonder and inordinate self love…the animal at the fools side signifies his servitude to the whims of his animal desires and his reliance on the lower appetites rather than reason...the sun is at his back since he has turned his back on divine reason and is guided by his own whims....we see the fool is ready to step into the void rather than to walk into the light of faith and reason..and we see much of this happening among the proponents of MEDJUGORJE..who refuse to see reason time and again....

 
. a Fool is not worried about where the journey will end… a fool knows by his or her own subjective hierarchy of self that life is lived in the moment..and that what one feels is true and is the basis for all justified true belief…even though we know that the body itself is fallen and lives and acquires information through faculties which are bent on concuspiscence and so sullied…we see that the fool will trust no one but their own heart and ravenous appetites….once he has made his mind up to turn to himself for certitude rather than God and his Church the devil is indeed not far behind....


 
..The hanged man is unconventional and at odds with traditional notions of good and evil…it is not for nothing that the hanged man is depicted hung upside down as a mockery of the crucifixion..it is also apt since a soul in this state has obverted the faculties which regard Church propriety , reason and prudence...such a soul has surrendered to its own appetites and hearts desires and so feels a counterfeit peace since the struggle seems to be over..he is the antithesis to CHrist..such a one surrenders to the self will not to the will of God and his Church.... his  ideology is hostile to a life lived by carrying the cross of Christ…such a soul seeks its own advantage and falls prey to consequentialism and utilitarianism…indeed the hanged man hangs himself by relying on his own ignorance and mistaking it for truth..the hanged man talks of I believe or I feel beyond what the Church deems to be true through her magisterium and her doctrine...yet this the devil passes off as enlightenment...of course such a person will take tolerance as a virtue without realizing the ramifications of such a choice..in the end tolerance breeds contempt and violence since there is no objective ideal to be patterned upon..chaos ensues…however because the devil is the author of all this counterfeit spirituality we see that under the veneer of piety and spectacle and exploitation of Holy devotions and sacramentals of Holy Church ...in MEDJUGORJE we have elements of the fool the hanged-man and the devil…let us pray for each other that this dark collusion be one day brought into the light of reason…..amen
