I almost feel like we've had a bit of reprieve during the Trump administration. Seems to me like we have a little more protection and the ground underneath the enemies of Truth is collapsing. (The outing of sexual debauchery are more bricks on the pile!)
It's weird that as the secular culture is in a 180, Pope Francis starts scorching the Truth inside of the Church.
Cardinal Burke said something thought-provoking in his latest interview.
When the foundation of the moral law is questioned within the Church, the cardinal said, “then the whole order of human life and the order of the Church itself are endangered.”
“So there is a feeling that in today’s world that is based on secularism with a completely anthropocentric approach,” Cardinal Burke continued, “by which we think we can create our own meaning of life and meaning of the family and so on, the Church itself seems to be confused.”
“In that sense, one may have the feeling that the Church gives the appearance of being unwilling to obey the mandates of Our Lord,” he stated. “Then perhaps we have arrived at the End Times.”
Ugh. You mean the circus hasn't even started?!
The idea that the Holy Father is ushering in the antichrist in the Holiest of Holies is not a very flattering one for Pope Francis.
Cardinal Burke also mentions the rumor that Pope Francis' Curia is working on a kangaroo ritual simulating Catholic Sacraments with Lutherans. I've said this before, but it bears repeating-I don't think Pope Francis is going to do anything that would bring about his removal. And simulating the sacraments with Lutherans would be the beginning of his end.
I keep meaning to read the Book of Revelation again to reacquaint myself with what happens inside of the Church. We know the basics follow Christ's Passion and Crucifixion, but now that its unfolding, its not exactly meeting with my expectations. I'm specifically interested in brushing up on the woman and the dragon.
I also remember something St. John Paul II said around the turn of the century, right about the time he released the Third Secret of Fatima. He said something about an uproar, that the time to flee into the desert was approaching and be not afraid. He very discreetly said it at the Angelus. A non-event in the Church and media. But, I remember being blown away when he said it.
A future blog post!
In any event, very interesting comments by Cardinal Burke.
