Hello everyone and welcome to the Vortex where lies and falsehoods are trapped and
exposed. I’m Michael Voris.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well. Even as the Christmas season is still in
full swing, it’s that time of year when many people make resolutions and then see how
fast they can brake them. Of course, setting about to drop ten pounds or eat healthier is a far cry from the even more strenuous demands of the spiritual life.
But being resolved to increase in holiness is the very goal of the Catholic – and not just at the beginning of the year.
So here are three suggested resolutions to assist in a life of increased holiness.
Resolution #1 – resolve to firmly fight against the deplorable lack of knowledge of the Catholic faith, and mainly on the part of fellow Catholics.
This is going to instantly earn you enemies, or at least people who want little to do with you anymore. Explaining to fellow Catholics that they have an almost less than childlike understanding of what the Church teaches in many areas is not the greatest way to wins friends. Nevertheless it must be done.
You will run head long and full force right into the teeth of post-Modernism and secular relativism that has so gripped your fellow lukewarm or fallen away Catholics. You must be prepared for this reality and ready to explain in kind fashion that they don’t know what they don’t know.
Which will very quickly bring you to ..
Resolution #2 – resolve to discuss in a frank fashion the problems and hurdles in the
structures of the Church establishment and bureaucracy that have in large measure
created and still help support the outstanding ignorance which so many Catholics are in possession of.
Now this too will earn you enemies .. BELIEVE ME. But again, it must be stated as
truthfully as possible. The reason why is very simple.
As you begin to explain to your fellow Catholics that they have a faulty understanding of this or that teaching .. and it will almost always come back to some matter of sexual morality .. they are inevitably going to say to you something like,“Well, Fr. Bob said its ok if we use contraception if we pray about it.” Or.“Sr. Francis Pat says that one day there will be women priests and the Vatican is just slow.”
The rejoinders .. formed by years of deplorable theological training .. if it can be called that .. will go on endlessly and each one will add to the mountain of evidence of exactly WHY you need to be talking to these people in the first place.
Which brings us to the third resolution ..
Resolution #3 – talk about the four last things .. know collectively as the Eschaton ..Death Judgment Heaven and Hell. Please note .. there are FOUR things on that list .. not two.
Today .. because of their horrible training which continues to be upheld in parish after parish and religion class after religion class and RCIA program after RCIA program .. the only two that ever really get mentioned are Death and Heaven.
The Modernists would deny that death happens if they could get away with it .. the same way they deny that .. in effect .. that there is such thing as Judgment as well as Hell. In the current state of affairs .. the theology has been adulterated to such a point that most Catholics think you 1) Die and 2) go to Heaven.
They are not sufficiently warned in advance that the correct order is 1) we Die. 2) We are Judged and then depending on the judgment .. Heaven or Hell.
And since this really is THE WHOLE ENCHILADA .. no resolution to talk about the
faith can be seriously had without the message being expressed in full.
And here is the message in full .. You were created for heaven. The Church is in such a deep deep crisis these days .. that those who have been given charge to tell you the whole truth .. many many many times simply do not. SideNote: God Have Mercy on THEIR souls.
Their lack of telling you the whole truth has left you in a woeful .. as in full of woe ..state of ignorance which makes it very difficult for you to navigate through a world of sin and temptation and live as a son of the light .. which is what you MUST do to attain eternal life in Heaven.
Now .. forget about losing ten pounds or eating better as your primary resolutions and get out there and start evangelizing .. today.
GOD Love you .. I’m Michael Voris.
(HAPPY NEW YEAR MICHAEL)
