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!

Mortal Sin Against the Fifth Commandment – Hatred

The Fifth Commandment: “You Shall Not Kill”

Bigotry

Hatred is a sin that kills the heart. It destroys innocence. It is un-Christian simply because as Christians we are all called to be Christ-like. Christ does not hate anyone, but He loves us all.

Jesus mentions in both the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, that we are called to love as He does. When Jesus is asked which of all the Commandments is the greatest, we read in Matthew:

Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. Matthew 22:36-39

Similarly,we read in Mark:

And there came one of the scribes that had heard them reasoning together, and seeing that he had answered them well, asked him which was the first commandment of all. And Jesus answered him: The first commandment of all is, Hear, O Israel: the Lord thy God is one God. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind, and with thy whole strength. This is the first commandment. And the second is like to it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:28-31

Jesus makes it crystal clear. We are to love one another as He has loved us. We are to love our enemies and pray for them!

Jesus Christ Eucharist

Hate is the absence of love. And the absence of love is the absence of Christ. And the absence of Christ is the complete removal and disconnect from the state of grace.

There are people who upset us and the devil uses this as opportunities to tempt us into giving into hatred. Being upset with someone is not the same as hating them. Being upset with someone is a perfectly normal reaction, especially when someone does something sinful and should know better.

Bigotry is a sin because you hate someone for something that they are. What makes bigotry worse than hatred is that it is hatred specifically because of something that they are.

It is never right to hate anybody. No matter what they have done. If you are going to hate anything, hate sin. Hate sin so much that you avoid it any time it rears its ugly head. Sin destroys everything and ruins your relationship with God. Sin makes us worthy of that eternal punishment below.

If you are struggling with anger, take it to confession. God hates your sin, but He doesn’t hate you. Likewise, hate sin and not each other. The same way that Christ forgives your sin in the confessional, forgive others what they have done to you. Make amends, talk with them and depending on the situation, continue having them in your lives. If this is not a possibility and having them in your life continues pain and anger, keep them away until you have healed.

Love one another as Christ loves you. Forgive others of their trespasses, as God forgives you of your trespasses.
