The Synod and the Cross

And they came to a farm called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples: Sit you here, while I pray.
And he took Peter and James and John with him; and he began to fear and to be heavy.
And he said to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death; stay you here, and watch.
And when he was gone forward a little, he fell flat on the ground; and he prayed, that if it might be, the hour might pass from him.
And he said: Father, all things are possible to thee: remove this chalice from me; but not what I will, but what thou wilt.
And he came, and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter: Simon, sleepest thou? couldst thou not watch one hour?
Watch ye, and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
And going away again, he prayed, saying the same words.
And when he returned, he found them again asleep, (for their eyes were heavy,) and they knew not what to answer him.
And he cometh the third time, and saith to them: Sleep ye now, and take your rest. It is enough: the hour is come: behold the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Rise up, let us go. Behold, he that will betray me is at hand.
And while he was yet speaking, cometh Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve: and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the ancients.
And he that betrayed him, had given them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; lay hold on him, and lead him away carefully.

Hundreds of millions, perhaps even billions, of souls lost.
Churches destroyed and closed down.
Masses corrupted by sacrilege.
Children abused.

None of us need reminding about all of the awful things that have happened since the Second Vatican Council. Since the sinister shadows of the Enlightenment and Modernism which lurked behind the veil of Vatican affairs since the 19th Century, turned towards the very highest categories of solemn worship and liturgical life. It is inconceivable to think that the level of damage which has been done in only 50 years, with only the minor interruption of Benedict XVI's papacy (comically called a 'winter papacy' by some progressives) could be repeated on a similar scale for the next 50 years.

The faith has been completely savaged by the infiltration by homosexuals, Modernists, heretics, paedophiles and every other type of lowlife who has desecrated the collar by feigning interest in the lives of their parishioners while turning their souls over to Satan and betraying the Lord who gave them their very lives.

In the same way that Our Lord was betrayed, humiliated and crucified, so too must we accept this Cross of seeing His Blessed Church reduced to little more than a haven for charlatans, half-wits and degenerates.

Francis may very well commit a formal heresy during this process of the meeting of the Synod Fathers. The Mass may very well subsequently become a vehicle for those in mortal sin to delude themselves into thinking that they are perfectly fine. Our priests, bishops and cardinals may openly attack the God that they took sacred vows to represent.

These things I command you, that you love one another. If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.

Peter fled impulsively in his recoil from the supposed weakness of God . Let us pray that we do not do the same. But suffer we must if needs be, for Our Lord and for His Church.

Watching the Bride of Christ suffer like this may be Our Cross, but no greater Cross was carried than that of Our Lord.

The world may hate us but...His Yoke is Easy and His Burden Is Light.
