All praise the Thetokos and Our Divine Lord Incarnate, Jesus Christ. In these dark times of apostasy, tragedy, and betrayal from our own hierarchy, we get the tendency to fall into despair. When seeing Holy Mother Church being torn to pieces by wolves, it brings nothing but discouragement and confusion to Her Children.
Some begin to question if the Catholic Church is the true Church since Christ said that the gates of Hell shall not prevail, yet the actions of the Bishops seem as if all Hell broke loose.
It is a fact that the gates have not and will not prevail against the Church since Our Lord is not a liar. During the Arian heresy that has infiltrated the entire Church, Saint Athanasius has stated:
“Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”
Christ has selected Judas as his disciple to give that very example of a traitor within Holy Mother Church, and unfortunately we are seeing that within our times by many of the clergy who have abandoned the faith.
We continue to see Bishops departing from the Catholic faith. We see many bishops falling in apostasy, not to mention the anti Christ desire to change dogma, which is impossible since truth cannot ever change.
While the ‘conservative’ bishops and Traditional Catholics are being silenced and labeled schismatic by the modernists, we get the impression that we are in a stuck situation that we cannot get out of, similar to that of a young boy that has fallen into a well but cannot find a way out since there isn’t a rope or latter to pull him up out of it.
My dear brethren in Christ Jesus, we must not loose hope. We must continue to say Our Rosaries every day, stay in sanctifying grace, and pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary since it has not been done validly, confirmed by Sister Lucia herself while the Vatican covered it up with a false interpretation that it has been done, as Pope Benedict XVI admitted himself since he read the third secret.
