May 9, 2014, Update

May 9, 2014, Feast of Saint Gregory Nazianzen within the Octave of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph:

As a result of an internet outage last night that was simply beyond my control to remedy, part two of The Rubicon Was Crossed Fifty Years Ago, part one, will be posted until later today. It will deal primarily, although no exclusively, with the pending “beatification” of Giovanni Montini/Paul the Sick. My apologies for the delay.

I do, however, have an interesting story to relate that involves Americanism as a fundamental building block of conciliarism (see Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics and Resulted in the Rise of Conciliarism).

Sharon and Lucy were shopping yesterday when they met an employee who had been stationed where she stood just moments beforehand. Sharon noticed that the woman, named Irma, was wearing what appeared to be a very tiny image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Irma responded to Sharon’s question about the image by exclaiming, “Yes! Catholica! Yes!”

Irma, who is from Mexico, then related the story of how her entire family in Mexico was Catholic, that they lived and breathed the Holy Faith. As soon as they moved to this country, however, each of her siblings, save for one, and her own mother apostatized to become Protestants of one sort or another. They pull of pluralism was too hard to resist, and the craziness of the conciliar liturgies bore no resemblance to even a generic “Christianity,” no less to the true Faith, Catholicism.

Irma bravely bore witness to the Holy Faith as she sat by her mother’s bedside while she was dying and her mother implored her to join her Protestant sect. Irma told Sharon that she said, “No! The Catholic Church is the true Church. None other! No!”

Irma went on to say that she prayed her Rosary every morning and night, doing so at work sometimes when she is able to do so. This woman is a brave champion of Cristo Rey and a devoted daughter of La Virgen de Guadalupe!

Yes, the horrors of American pluralism are still taking people out of what they think is the Catholic Church, aided and abetted in no small measure, of course, by the horrors of conciliarism.

We have much for which to make reparation as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!
