Satanists Are In Need of Prayers…And A Beating

A happy and blessed Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you. Normally, today would be a Holy Day of Obligation, but because today is Monday and everyone just went to Mass yesterday, the Bishops have decided that it would be too difficult to go to Mass, *gasp* two days in a row! But that’s a discussion for another post. Today, I want to talk about the disgusting and vileness of Satanists and one way we should handle them.

Satanists in Oklahoma will be blaspheming Our Lady with one of their disgusting “ceremonies” today. I won’t go into the detail of what these Satanists are going to do, as I don’t want to give them the satisfaction that innocent minds and souls will be exposed to their putrid displays of hatred for the Truth. The amazing thing about this is that from what I can tell, there have been no statements made by bishops within this country calling for prayer and/or fasting against this demonic attack against our faith and our Blessed Mother. But, don’t worry, if Donald Trump says something mean they will call a press conference immediately to let you know how upset they are.

Satanists are possibly the saddest and most pathetic souls to walk this vale of tears. In some regard, Satanists are stronger believers than many Catholics. Most Catholics believe in the Real Presence of the Eucharist; Satanists don’t believe it. They know it to be true.

Satanists blasphemy Our Lord by desecrating the Eucharist during their black masses. They know the Eucharist to be the Physical Manifestation of Jesus Christ, and instead of bowing down to worship Our Lord, they stamp upon Him, they trample Him, and they do many vile things to Him.

They do the same thing to Our Blessed Mother, except they are even viler.

We should pray for these poor souls, as that is the charitable and Catholic response. But in all seriousness. Why are we not beating the living Hell out of these people?

After all, St. John Chrysostom said that one should sanctify their hand by striking the mouth of a blasphemer who refuses to recant their error. Not only do these perverts refuse to renounce their erroneous and diabolical beliefs, but they get off on them…literally.

Why is it that Catholics are so timid to do anything but pray? If a rapist was to announce publicly that he was going to rape someone at a specific location, would we just sit outside that location and pray for his conversion, all along allowing the victim to be raped? Here we are, our victim being Our Blessed Mother and the best that we see is that there will be a prayer rally outside.

At one time, Catholics would have rushed in to interrupt these vile displays and would even bring priests along to sprinkle exorcised water. But today, we see that only prayers will be offered.

Now, I know what you are thinking. “Wow! This is some super violent behavior, so not Catholic!” Let us recall the time that Jesus went into the temple and made a whip of cords and literally beat the snot out of those who were desecrating what was Holy, that being the House of the Lord.

If Jesus went so far as to beat these people for exchanging money and selling items within the temple, how much more deserving of a beating of someone who is desecrating the Holy of Holies of Our Blessed Lord or His Mother? Is Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior that much more Holy than a Temple? Is His Mother, who was conceived without sin, pure throughout her entire life, died a beautiful and holy death and then assumed into Heaven, both body and soul, not more Holy than a Temple?

It is not violent to ask these questions as desecration of the Holy should make your blood boil. It is not “non-Catholic” to ask these questions either, despite the amount of effort put forth to make Catholic men act, behave, and think like women. And that isn’t a slight at women, as men and women have differing duties in the realm of the physical and the spiritual.

But I know there are some of you out there who are thinking that I am not being a “good Catholic” because I write this article. And that’s completely fine, you’re entitled to your opinion, even if it’s wrong. And while you sit there thinking how much better you are because you don’t think this way, I’ll say a couple of things. First, you’re a coward because you do not love Our Lord enough to defend Him with your life. Second, your pride is showing.

For those who can’t be there, continue to offer up prayers, as they are powerful. For those who are actually in the area, do something. Deus Vult!

What Is Blasphemy?

Awhile back, I posted on what the unforgivable sin was. I remind you about it because the other day I received a comment from a reader and I wanted to address it.

Jakob says:

“I don’t understand these words of Jesus fully. Sometimes being in despair and blaspheming against God is the most beautiful and painful prayer which God will fully understand. I mean, my God.
I would take the words more metaphorically: it’s all about the love of God.”

To me, the term in question is the proper definition of blasphemy. Using the Concise Catholic Dictionary of 1943 (CCD), we read that blasphemy is “any word or act insulting to God or to holy things. It is a sin against religion and may be aimed directly at God, or indirectly by contempt for His Church, His saints, or sacred persons or things.”

Based on this definition, it appears that blasphemy, properly understood, is specifically when we insult God or use His name in vain.

Despair is defined also in the CCD as “the contrary of hope; the state of being hopeless; deliberate act of the will by which one turns away from salvation, considering it as impossible of attainment.”

It appears that despair is not necessarily a blasphemous act, as despair is the deliberate act of the will and turning away from salvation. I would argue that Jesus was not in despair when He was on the cross, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” Seeing as Jesus was perfect in His Divinity, this would not be sinful. Jesus could not commit a sin. Jesus is actually quoting Psalm 22 by saying this.

Being in a state of true despair and true blasphemy would be completely sinful, as we are not only denying God in His mercy (despair), but we would also be insulting Him (blasphemy).

In my opinion, what Jakob is referring to with “My God”, is similar to the statement of Jesus on the cross. It is not a despair of hopelessness or blasphemy, but it is an honest discussion with God in complete frustration and coming to Him with this frustration. If you are still going to God, then you are not in despair, just be wary that in your frustration you are not insulting to Him.
