Thursday in the First Week of Lent
But God is our King before the ages
(Ps. 73.12, from today’s Office of Prime in the Roman Breviary)
Only Our Lord can we find in the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart should lead to the purification of our heart – the expanding consummation or extinguishing of every movement in it towards the pride of ‘liberty of opinion’ (you shall be as Gods, knowing what is good and evil, Gen 3.5) – which leads to ‘liberty of conscience’ which in turn leads to ‘indifferentism’: each one to his own ‘truth’, let’s just ‘respect’ one another’s view – and the satisfaction of the disordered cravings for sensual pleasure which all lead us to the service of the devil who sways and conspires with these wayward movements by too subtly deceptive allurements of half-truths and the seemingly good: the purification – active on our part and passive on God’s – of everything that is not Him. Therefore we need a supernatural light – the light of our Faith, for Christ may dwell in [our] hearts by Faith, Eph. 3.17 – which makes us see, not so much as the vilest tendencies and inclinations of our fallen nature which drag it down to level of the dogs (from today’s Holy Gospel, Mt. 15.21-28), nay even worse today [for dogs burning openly in their lust on the streets do not deviate from the Natural Law]; as the healing and saving hand of God working by means of a far exalted a manner (the Lesson, Is. 55.6-11, last Tuesady) in the trustfully persistent prayer of the humble (Have mercy on me, O Lord, Mt. 15.22) before His royal throne of grace and mercy in our midst – “royal throne”: sharp contrast, as in today’s Holy Gospel, of Who God is according to His judgement (But God is our King before the ages) and who we are, as sinners, standing before Him, the dogs… the whelps (Mt. 15.26,27); and this “royal throne” is none other than our traditional Catholic high altar: 1) upon which seats Him Who is the awaited King – Thou Son of David, (Mt. 15.22) Whose kingdom [the true Catholic Church] there shall be no end (Lk. 1.33) – and Whom we must discern by a great… faith (Mt. 15.28) to be the King of kings and Lord of lords (Apoc. 19.16) under the form of an unleavened Wafer-Bread Which is 2) reserved only for a) the faithful [not to ‘ecumenical’ Protestants, Jews, Schismatics, or infidels who are allowed in the “New ‘Church'”] b) in the state of grace [Penance replaced by ‘Reconciliation’ in which the traditional formula of absolution is rarely heard: sin devalued by priests of the “New ‘Catholic Theology'” into a mere ‘weakness’] – Divine judgement: It is not good to take the Bread of the children and to cast it to the dogs (Mt. 15.26)…
In the Masonic-Protestant chamber of the “New ‘Catholic Church'” (the “Vatican II-Church”)
… When the modern-day anti-pope Bergoglio (Francis), installed this day a year ago, made new 19 strands of scarlet (Apoc. 17.4) – the cardinals of the Vatican II-‘Church’ (the “Novus Ordo” or the “New ‘Catholic Order’); cf., our post Illuminare – he addressed them at St. Peter’s Basilica: “A [“Novus Ordo”] cardinal enters… NOT A ROYAL COURT” (23rd Feb.). Why the King of kings and Lord of lords got dethroned from the high altar: perched on anything somewhere else or even booted out of the sanctuary. “Not a royal court” but a Masonic-Protestant chamber: cf., our post “The Catholic Sanctuary: Prefigured in the Old Testament (II)“.
