Feast of the Dawn of the Orient from on High (St. Lk. 1.78), “the Sun of Justice, Christ our God” (the Roman Breviary).
The perfection of our Spiritual Life can not be without its “Dark Night” (St. John of the Cross) and so it is with the Spouse of Christ – the Catholic Church – being purged (cf. Eph. 5.26), in her Great Tribulation, to a remnant who shall have to FLEE (St. Mt. 24.16) for the time being the familiar and convenient institutional walls of the New Jerusalem, which is all that is left to the mainstream [the ‘official’ institutional Church – the Neo-Catholic Church of Vatican II; and, the ‘official’ Priestly Society of St. Pius X under the “New ‘Catholic’ disOrder”-integration regime of Menzingen], that they should be saved OUT of Mount Sion (4 Ki. 19.31), when the Sun [is] darkened and the moon [the Church] shall not give her light [“as if involved in darkness,” St. Augustine in our post Great Tribulation], and the stars [fallen] from heaven <with almost the entire hierarchy in cahoots with the red sign appearing also in heaven – the Church, in Apocalyptic figure – see: “The Year 1929“> (St. Mt. 24.29). Now that this “Dark Night” is almost near its deepest darkness, the Dawn again will the Orient from on High bring – but, already,light is risen to the just, and joy to the right of heart (Office of Matins, Ps. 96.11) who hear [the Dawn at Fatima – the Great Sign in heaven] and keep [Her Great Message and Secret – see the right side-bar of this site]” (St. Lk. 11.28). A most blessed Feast to everyone!
