The Great Apostasy – an Epic poem

I love Crusader Will’s work but I don’t always understand all the hidden meanings or references to history past. So he decided this time to write an explanation of key points and references.I have put these in italics and in a purple font.
*****

Every stanza follows the same acrostic pattern of THE GREAT spelled out downwards with the first letter of each line,
and APOSTASY spelled out upwards with the last letter of each line.
The first stanza is printed with this pattern emphasized.
*****

THE GREAT APOSTASY

The prophets have always said there would come our way
Huge faith upheavals, but it has taken us
Extremely long to discern the present drama.
Gethsemane knew. It cost Jesus the blood-filled sweat
Recorded in scripture  but not there ascribed to taunts
Emptied in one straight-Satan facts-farrago
Announcing  to Jesus ours the time of the Cup
To be drained again on salvation’s arena.

2
There’s nothing new about rampant heresy:
Hard heads at the helm; in their wake the massed light-weights –
Easygoing dupes of this topnotch miasma
Grimly extolled by churchmen off their own proud bat
(Righteous-pretending but stubbornly erroneous).
Exceptional the lay or clerical hero
Assured enough to back the Book of Truth up.
Time now to get candid with these arcana.

Stanzas 2/3  This refers chiefly to the Arian heresy  rampant in the early Church, which was largely defeated by the efforts of the laity; but the same success with other heresies is not being enjoyed today, despite the efforts of many lay-persons and some clergy.

3. The mayhem depends on a mix of villainy,
Happenstance and lethargy to cause the morass
Everyone gets shown as on a diorama.
God desires,  for those who seek him, enlightenment
Regarding the small-circle initiatives
Endorsed by the masses almost in toto;
And, failing a repeat past Church-faithful rise-up,
The damage now amounts to a major trauma.

4

The piece you may now be reading carefully
Has its origins in mind-and-spirit arts
Employing faith-received as faith-apologia.
God’s recasting my late-life discursive-verse craft.
Roping thought and word into a case of fixed forms,
Era-straddling highlights flaws those ‘Novus-Ordo’
Accept. But my type tends more to a whole-truth grasp,
Though it’s starter’s-stage in my fine arts-agenda.

The Awful Disclosures of Bella Dodd supply
Heaven-sent chances for Fatima-background facts.
Even years before, pleas were made to Lucia –
Giant in promise –  for a simple joint event
Requiring hierarchy and pope to take steps
(Explained in full) to stop a warped scenario –           
At source – in Russia – from spreading world-wide.This step       
The Evil One stymied with his vast militia.

5/6. Bella Dodd was a Communist who converted to Catholicism and revealed that a huge infiltration into clergy in the Church had been made by men who were without any faith or any commitment to chastity. The purpose of this was to destroy the Church from within.
This manouvre, originating with Stalin, was not ostensibly revealed when Our Lady requested the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, which she said would result in the conversion of Russia,  and in the cessation of the spread of errors by Russia throughout the world. This Consecration has never been made.
The phrase ‘Awful Disclosures’ comes from the title of a mendacious 19-century anti-Catholic book. namely The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk, about sexual misconduct in a convent

6

The Church has never made, since, specifically,
Heart-of-Mary-Immaculate consecrations
Expressly aimed at Russia, to convert Russia.
Gaps like this Stalin filled with evil intent,
Rallying young men to infiltrate,  with huge success,
Every corner of the Church. Dark their proviso :
Asked – Church-destructive from within,  faith-frauds,  hip –
To form ordained homosexual substrata.

The ‘Third Secret of Fatima’ Sister Lucy
Had a disclosure time-frame for, which went amiss,
Eventually turning out soap-opera.
Gingerly was the text opened;  then squinted at;
Read; then poked back in a Vatican recess.
Emphatically: an untimely ‘no-no’.
Agitators brokered why it was for the chop:
The great apostasy bore its broad schemata.

  1. The exact content of the Third Secret of Fatima is hotly contested. The interpretation favoured by contemporary Traditionalists is that it refers to the situation known as the Great Apostasy which has been building up for a long time, emanating from various quarters, including the heresy known as Modernism and the secret society known as Freemasonry which has an enormous influence on the modern world, including the Catholic Church.

8

Time for the ‘treatment’ to be shown Freemasonry:
Hell’s ancient masterpiece. Variously: blandness
Ensconced down a quiet street; grim esoterica
Glaring from an eerie film; or bright tommy-rot
Reverberating from opera stages.
Essentially: a behind the scenes imbroglio,
Activating malign developments from top
To bottom of a mind-set out of Ruritania.

  1. My inspiration for lines 2-5 is: a typical Masonic hall exterior in any town; the film Eyes Wide Shut; and Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute. Ruritania is an imaginary country appearing in literature and stage-works to depict a certain Central European atmosphere.

9

The land of the Blarney broached the Real McCoy.
Heaven had said it all long long before. Bliss-
Eternal planned (though millennial euphoria
Grappled with current goings-on for a judgment
Right on the mark).  Then there the Book of Truth was:
Exact, exhaustive; a massive portfolio
Astounding and authoritative,  summing up
The times before, during and after the Parousia.

  1. The ‘Land of the Blarney’ is,  of course, Ireland, home of the visionary known as Maria Divine Mercy,  to whom was dictated the Book of Truth, which deals in great detail with the world situation unfolding over the past while in the lead-up to the events called the Warning and the Second Coming.  The word ‘parousia’ refers to the return of Jesus to the earth.  These and other details also occur in further stanzas.

10

The precise extent of the great apostasy
Has long eluded most of the faithful like us.
Even the warned-against misplaced charisma
Granted our leaders as lay matter-of-fact
Rapidly started shrinking as deceived persons
Emptied from the pews,  or, pulpit-starved of credo
As past-practised, were led from these same pews to hop
Tracks onto roads leading to a Modernist Nirvana.

11

The dynamics of apostasy are so sly.
Heterodox gangs pick up on the Fall in us,
Easing our skewered  gaze into a replica
Grown from the twists and turns in their darkness of heart.
Righteousness wilts. Poor example paralyses
Each good streak else.  Boxed fruit (one bad) rots quid pro quo.
A lone erratic can bring vast schemes to a stop.
Turbulence now congests our world panorama.

12

The remedial process will not be pretty.
Hardened sinners have no clue as to the horrors
Earmarked by experts for the phantasmagoria
Godless planners think a peak-experience treat
Replacing any kingdom-come hopes in Christians.
Even inventing myths (dear to Pope Bergoglio)
About the Tribulation they see building up,
They’ll be still more shocked than friends of Christ-Omega.

  1. The New World Order has been long in the planning. It will be short in duration.Bergoglio’ is Pope Francis’ birth surname. It is often used as a protest against his papal reign.
    Climate-change and ‘eco-salvation’ myths are part of the Tribulation that we are experiencing but which he may not recognize as apocalyptic.
    ‘Omega’ as in alpha and omega – the beginning and the end.

13.Truth is a Book open to Divine Mercy’ .                         
Here is a Google- search among many that leads
Exactly to the cosmic memoranda
God planted in Daniel but (unplumbed in the past)
Revitalized my old age despite grave doubts
Entertained for soldier-skills to be gained solo,
After this my ‘secret-agent’ phase. It’s a wrap
(Though some ploys not aired here pose a real dilemma).

14

The leadership has a gigantic role to play.
Hell could have snared many of our acquaintances,
Even friends and family. Church-ruled millennia,
Geared to atonement measures against such age-old taint,
Run into the prime problem of these stubborn times:
Exponentially, sin meets less preached embargo
As impenitence pours harder into the Cup
That Garabandal said neared peak-anathema

  1. The Garabandal prophecies of Our Lady are very important, though less well-known than Fatima. They bear out the Warning prophecies in the Book of Truth.

15

There’s a small range of options to deploy –
Hardily, secretly –  given the grave crisis
Everything’s now converging on (packed with data
Garnered from the traditions of our chequered past).
‘Remnant’ is a Biblical term,  reworked; ‘Maquis’,
Exhumed from secular conflicts not long ago –
Alternatives to qualms about the ‘ schism-trap’.
Time to preview the ‘Church of Catacombia’.

  1. There may only be a ‘remnant’ still faithful when the Lord returns.  The word ‘Maquis’ refers to the French Resistance organisation set up to defeat Nazi occupation.The ‘schism-trap’ is a phrase used to refer to the quandary facing some faithful who wonder if to cease attending parishes that practice  or will practice  grave heresy imposed on them  by  apostates in Rome,is to create schism or escape schism. Already dissenters from apostasy among the clergy are being called ‘schismatic’.
    ‘Catacombia’ is a term of my coinage, coming from the word ‘catacombs’, hiding places for the Church persecuted in ancient Rome.

16

This is the issue for which I’m pressed to lobby.
Hard times, allayed by providential promises,
Egg me on with this Church ‘final-test’ schema.
Grace perfects nature;  planning  – accomplishment.
Reality will some time be: Church-homelessness
Everywhere but a properly prepared ghetto.
An essential for every autonomous group:
Table your own Abomination-agenda.

  1. The ‘final test’ is a phrase occurring  in the Catechism of the Catholic Church to refer to the greatest crisis in her history, just before the Second Coming,  a crisis which many believe is what we are experiencing now within the Church and soon also outside the Church with the arrival of the mysterious figure known as the Antichrist. The Book of Truth gives us instructions about a number of protective measures we can take, which are referred to in this poem as ‘providential promises’.
    ‘Abomination’ is the climactic sign of desecration.

17

The Church in ‘Catatonica’ disarray
Has by contrast  the power to show what is
Exactly the Church Next – same as graced the era
Going before the travesty of the present.
Righting it nowadays will not meet with much success.
Emergency measures will only work so-so.
Average, lukewarm, ignorant, in fraudsters’ grip,
The Catatonics will shun a Latin gala.

  1. ‘Catatonica’ is a term of my coinage, derived from ‘catatonic’, used to describe those who are in a trance of ignorance about the errors already imposed on them or soon to be imposed by apostate leaders in the Church.  ‘Latin gala’ refers to the  somewhat growing spread of the Tridentine rite.

18

Those Tridentine-born, but New-Mass as adults, stray
Hardly ever,  if they had firm faith groundings
Early on.  But, turned off the Francisco-mania
Gripping pews solely Novus-Ordo, I now post
Resistance online comment-calls for measures
(Either ad-lib or campaigned-for) to be all-go
Again : old-style devotions; sermons with pep;
Try-out private-clubs; freelance priests (inter alia).

  1. The Tridentine Rite is the Latin liturgy that prevailed until Vatican II, after which a vernacular rite was invented called the ‘Novus Ordo’. Most Catholics today experience only the latter, but many now elderly experienced as youngsters not only the Tridentine rite but also extensive instruction in the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, which many believe are not taught today to most Catholics.

19

The English had a penchant for the verse essay.
Here’s the point so far. The big or bit players
Execute moves not all know are on-camera
(Grand-denouement-doomed to grind to a halt).
Racing to ruin with who knows what survivors
(Excluding me?), the field, amid great ballyhoo
About the jumps (each saddled with some handicap)
Take to the last stage of this extravaganza.

20

The catacombs spur my ‘Catacombian’ ploy.
However my ‘Maquis-Underground’ updates
Entail no literal ‘down below’.  ‘Sub rosa’
Gravitates us more inclusively.  Precedent
Recalls priest-holes, ‘hedgerow’ liturgies, house chapels –
Emblematic of whole countries turned ‘no-go’,
As ‘seals-of -protection’ mine (if not gold stored up)
Tack Book-of-Truth tips on my ‘tabula rasa’.

  1. lines 5-6 refer to procedures from the past that were employed in times of persecution in England under the Tudors or in Ireland before Catholic Emancipation. 
    

21

The circle round ‘Maria Divine Mercy’
Has to watch its words.  It may have strategies
Excluded from the public, due to brouhaha
Granted prophecy (but net your ‘secret agent’).
Ready waiting:  ‘Antichrist’, ‘warning’, chastisements.
Events, persons such  – lag behind this verse promo.
Apocalyptic gloom precedes times to rev up
Three months of post/great-apostasy fiesta.

  1. The ‘three months’ is, according to the Book of Truth, how long the celebrations will last after the Second Coming.

Crusader Will

 

Crusader Will: a selection of bon mots

 

  1. The Pope is rumoured to be issuing a new Cateschism of the Catholic Church.
  2.  So many members of the Church of Rome  have dumped the Catechism of the Catholic Church that it’s become a cataclysm within the Catholic Church.
  1. I have moved so far right that soon I will have circled the globe and become far left.
  2. The new pagans want CHAOS not THEOS.
  3.  The new atheists have forfeited divine common sense and  now snap up a novelty doing the rounds so long as it’s total nonsense like transgenderism.
  4. I’m not afraid to call a spade a digging implement.
  5. Now is the time for all good priests to come to the aid of the laity.

Crusader Will

Crusaders are an Army!!!

AM+DG

Crusaders are an ARMY!

  1. An army has a leader – a General .
  2. An army has a mission to defeat the enemy that threatens them.
  3. An army has weapons – that are approved of, and supplied by the Army Leader/General. The weapons chosen are the best weapons available that are needed to defeat the enemy.
  4. An army has a handbook, with its ideals, procedures and instructions and logo and rules. This must be followed.
  5. Soldiers must be obedient to their leader and their mission.
  6. An army has a hierarchy. There are soldiers, sergeants, lieutenants
  7. An army has a uniform
  8. The soldiers are as one in their mission, in their battle formation, in their allegiance to their leader and their country, and in obedience. This is the key to victory..
  1. Crusade Prayer Groups are part of an army – the Remnant Army.

The crusaders are the soldiers.

Our Leader is Jesus Himself – Who gave us the mission and Who gave us instructions and a battle plan.

Thoughts: Not following the General/Commander’s orders and not following the battle plan would be disastrous in a war. Soldiers would not dream of it.

 

  1. The Mission is the ‘Salvation of Souls’.

The enemy is not flesh and blood.

In order to win the battle, we must be as one.

 

  1. The weapons we are given are the Crusade Prayers, the Holy Rosary, and the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

These prayers were written in Heaven and promise extraordinary Graces.”  (11 Nov. 2012)

I will provide you, My army, with Prayers that will need to be recited to save souls.” (23 Oct. 2011)

“My followers are requested to recite these Prayers, which I will give you every day to save souls.” (17 Nov. 2011)

“My dear children, it is important that all of you recite the Crusade Prayers and my most Holy Rosary as part of your daily prayers” ((10 Feb. 2015))

“The power of prayer and, especially, the recital of the Holy Rosary, which renders the beast impotent, cannot be underestimated. To save more souls you must also recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet.   (7 March, 2013)

 

Power of Crusade Prayers:

Just one Crusade Prayer, said from the heart, is enough for Me to destroy the power of arrogant political leaders, who do not have a conscience” (29 Aug. 2013).

The Rosary is a most powerful weapon, and Jesus told us that the Crusade prayers are 30 times more powerful than other prayers.

Jesus told us that if people can stay after the prayers are said, that the remainder of the Mysteries of the Rosary should be said.Those who can remain afterwards may say the remaining Mysteries of the Rosary (Red Crusade Prayer Book p. 12)

Thoughts: In an army, only weapons that are approved by the General may be used. It is obvious that if the weapons were switched, or supplied with bullets that are inferior – that this would endanger the mission. This could happen by a traitor, an intruder or by someone who has no authority. It could mean the loss of the war. So let’s only use the prayers provided by Jesus – after all they are 30 times more powerful!! Why would you say other prayers??

 

  1. The handbook for the Remnant Army is the Book of Truth, the Crusade Prayer Book and the Bible.

Book of Truth:

 “Only these messages can reveal the secrets of times to come and offer the blessings needed by all of God’s children up to the last day..(18 June, 2012)

This may be a time of confusion, division, sadness and a longing for those who represent Me on this earth to proclaim the Truth. But know this. I Am the Truth. The Truth never dies. My Kingdom is eternal and you, My beloved children, belong to Me. Come. Stay close to Me. I will lead you to your rightful inheritance. Trust in Me. Listen to Me through these Messages – the Book of Truth. “ (6 May, 2015)

“Be wary of anyone who comes forward and who says they have been sent by Me, to help spread My Word….. But out they will come, these false prophets, in their droves, each one trying to outdo the other. They will then try to use this Mission to garner support, so that they can spread untruths.” (Nov. 23, 2014) 

“My word is the end.  It is final.  There can be no other word My Voice speaks to the world through these Messages“ (May 13, 2013)

On False Prophets, Jesus said:(October 26, 2013):

“What must I do to make you listen? What must I do to stop your wandering and seeking out other forms of titillation? Why will you not trust in Me? You waste so much precious time seeking out fortune telling, which flows like venom out of the mouths of so-called mystics and sensation seekers, that you insult Me by turning away from Me. I Am here. These are My Words. What else do you seek, for you will only find the Truth from My Mouth?…

When I speak, I desire that you listen. I cannot force you. You may look everywhere and try to find My Messages, given to prepare the world for My Second Coming at this time, and you won’t find them. My public Messages to prepare you for this, the final stage before My Covenant is fulfilled, can only be found in the Book of Truth.”

My dearly beloved daughter it must be known that those who profess to come in My Name, as prophets, but who do not speak in the tongues from Heaven, are increasing in numbers. So many of these souls are being infected by fallen angels and speak in carefully constructed, but loving tones, reminiscent of what you would expect to be My Sacred Voice. Oh how My poor devoted followers are being deceived now and how confused they will be. Who to trust? Who to follow? Who to believe? Did I not say that many will come in My Name but few with speak with My Voice? There are fewer than twenty who have permission to impart to the world the Word of God and this    … (28 June 2012)

… Only My Voice brings you the news as to what it is My Father wishes His children to know. …You will not hear the Truth anywhere else, in relation to My Second Coming, for not one amongst you has been given the Authority to speak to the whole world on behalf of the One Who created you.

As the true end time prophet reveals to you the Truth, so too will the counterfeit raise his voice, like a lamb who will speak as if it he speaks the True Word of God. Then as the king of the Earth – the evil one – fights against Heaven’s intervention, hundreds of false prophets will rise among you and they will never tell you the Truth. Their visions and their words, which spring from their own imaginations – and in many cases, from the spirit of evil – will reveal to you the good things you want to hear. …The Truth prepares you to deal with the reality of difficult times, foretold in My Father’s Book. It is given to you to make you strong. But the false prophets, who roam among you, will confuse you and tell you that all things are good – when they are bad, and holy – when they are not. They will shield the wolves who want to devour the souls of God’s children. Their words of love and their quotes from Holy Scripture serve only to deceive you. … Woe to all of you imposters,…. (Dec. 4, 2013) 

Thoughts: Be satisfied with God’s Words in the Book of Truth. Don’t be even tempted to look at the words of other mystics. We could be easily fooled. Don’t risk it.  Remember, Jesus told us that there were less than 20 authentic visionaries in the world today. The Book of Truth is all we need.!!!

The Crusade Prayer Book:

“Prayer Books to be used” (17 January, 2013)

Thoughts: One might wonder what this means. Prayer Books only have Crusade Prayers in them – no other prayers. This instruction links up with the one above – that only messages from the Book of Truth be used. (see point above)

If this is the case why would anyone include weapons (prayers) that are not approved or recommended by the Army Commander?

 

The Holy Bible:

I urge My followers to remind people of the importance of reading the Holy Bible, the Word set out, according to the Will of My Father.” .(23 January, 2013)

Today, My Word is spoken, yet again, to instil in the minds of people, today, the importance of My Teachings. Failure to accept the Word of God results in the death of the soul. (23 Jan 2013)

 

  1. As Crusaders – part of the Remnant Army – we must be obedient to our Leader – Jesus Himself.

You, My disciples, are under My direction. . (11 Nov 2012)

“It is because you are protected by My Father, and guided by Me directly, that you will succeed” (11 Nov.2012).

“I will bless each Prayer Group, when they agree to My Direction.” (17 January 2013)

“I thank those who have followed My instructions and show obedience.” (11 Nov 2012)

 

  1. The Remnant Army also has a hierarchy:

Jesus; Maria; a group of people sent to her by Jesus to be the co-ordinators in each region of the world. Maria is instructed by Jesus.

“You must work closely, in love and harmony, and keep in touch with My daughter, Maria. I have instructed her to assist, where possible, in guiding you. I have sent her a group of people who will co-ordinate these groups in different regions in the world. You must each focus on your own region and link with each other.  Maria will be instructed, by Me, as to how I need them to be managed and the format I desire.”

Thought:  Don’t try to do your own thing. Obey Jesus and the people He has chosen. That would be insubordination and disobedience to Jesus’ authority.

7. An army has a uniform.

The uniform shows where your allegiance lies. It identifies you. Everyone, when they see a soldier in uniform, know what to expect. The uniform will also have a logo.

Crusaders have a uniform – the Seal of the living God Scapular, the Medal of Salvation. Our logo is the Seal of the Living God.

 

8. Crusaders must be one

Jesus told us that there would be problems in our prayer groups:

“…To My followers, you must prepare now for the terrible trials, which you will have to face because of your response to My call. Everything will be done to cause disruption to your Prayer Groups…

Do not allow differences of opinion to halt this Work. This is a time when Satan will try to drive a wedge between you all” (January 17, 2013)

Thoughts: Let’s be prepared. Don’t allow disruption. Obey Jesus. If people leave the prayer group because they don’t like the rules, let them go. This might not be the right type of prayer group for them.

In Conclusion:

Surely we do not want to be the soldiers that destroy or undermine the mission! The Crusader must be true to the Mission that Jesus gave us and be true and obedient to Jesus Himself. We must obey Him in every detail.

“My children, you must seek out the comfort of each other, as you gather, at every corner of the earth, to form My Son’s Remnant Army. … You must remain united, my little children, because my Son needs your love and commitment, so that He can save humanity. You will, however, become a target for the evil one who will raise every demon, under his wing, to infiltrate you and cause division. Recognise these attempts, for what they are and trust, completely, in my Son. Call on me, your beloved Mother, to keep your Crusade Prayer Groups united.” (Feb. 5, 2013)

 “To My followers, you must prepare now for the terrible trials, which you will have to face because of your response to My call. Everything will be done to cause disruption to your Prayer Groups. … I urge you to work together in peace and harmony. Do not allow differences of opinion to halt this Work. This is a time when Satan will try to drive a wedge between you all, so that the Crusade Prayers are not spread globally, as dictated by Me.” (January 17, 2013)

Prepare for this global Mission, like no other. It is the Final Mission to save souls and every step of the way is dictated by Me, Jesus Christ.” (January 17, 2013)

So let’s all unite as one formidable army – making sure our prayer groups are obedient to Jesus’ instructions. 

 

Crusade Prayer P 121 :

 Allegiance to the Army of Jesus Christ

Sept.15, 2013″

“This Army has been given great Graces by Me and by the Power of the Holy Spirit they will keep the Flame of Christianity burning  and they will carry the Torch of Truth until the Final Day.”

We stand united to Your Sacred Heart, dear Jesus. We speak with authority the True Word of God. We will walk to the ends of the Earth to spread the Truth. We will never accept any new false doctrine in Your Name, other than that You taught us Yourself. We remain true, loyal and steadfast in our faith. We will treat those who betray You with love and compassion, in the hope that they will come back to You. We will be firm, but patient, with those who persecute us in Your Name. We will walk victorious all the way to Your New Paradise. We promise, that through our pain and suffering, we will bring You all those lost souls who are starved of Your Love. Please accept our prayers for all sinners in the world, so that we can become one family, united in love for You, in the New Era of Peace. Amen.

Crusade Prayer  P 143 :

To protect the Mission of Salvation   

(March 25, 2014)

O Mother of Salvation, protect this Mission, a Gift from God, to bring Eternal Life to all of His children everywhere. Please intervene, on our behalf, through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to give us the courage to carry out our duties to serve God at all times and especially when we suffer because of this. Help this Mission to convert billions of souls, in accordance with the Divine Will of God and to turn those hearts of stone into loving servants of your Son. Give all of us who serve Jesus in this Mission the strength to overcome the hatred and the persecution of the Cross and to welcome the suffering that comes with it, with a generosity of heart and with full acceptance of what may come ahead. Amen.

Crusade Prayer  155 :

For Protection of the Mission of Salvation

(June 8, 2014)

 “You must present your  prayers each day to my Son, for the protection of this Mission against the hatred of Satan. When you do this, every Blessing will be given to you”.

O dearest Mother of Salvation, hear our call for the protection of the Mission of Salvation and for the protection of God‘s children. We pray for those who defy the Will of God in this great moment in history. We ask that you protect all those who respond to your call and the Word of God, to save everyone from the enemies of God. Please help release those souls, who fall prey to the deceit of the devil and open their eyes to the Truth. O Mother of Salvation, help us poor sinners to be made worthy, to receive the Grace of perseverance at our time of suffering in the Name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.  Protect this Mission from harm.  Protect your children from persecution. Cover all of us with your Most Holy Mantle and favour us with the Gift of retaining our faith, every time we are challenged for speaking the Truth, for conveying the Holy Word of God, for the rest of our days now and forever. Amen.

Crusader Will: Gimme that Old Time Religion

AM+DG

 

True is true, and false is false.

Take me back to the Church of my  youth.

There can be found what’s needed underground,

With the old brought out instead of the new,

And tabernacle veils out in full view,

And I’m all God’s in spirit and truth

Where there’s statues on altars and flowers in bowls,

Thuribles ablaze with smoking coals,

Pretty little bells and holy water shells,

And I’m all God’s in spirit and truth.

 

 

 

 

We trusted our instructors

To maintain their integrity,

But the longer we probe, the stronger has grown

Our sense of futility.

 

My bones shriek out

The juggernaut rout

Of the high-minded lead we once received.

But keep searching on

And see how much has gone

Between the launching of the scam

And the bursting of the dam,

And what scope’s there now for spirit and truth

 

Where women are women and men are men,

With nothing in between beyond our ken,

And nothing untoward from the huckster’s hoard,

And we’re all God’s in spirit and truth,

Spirit and truth, spirit and truth.

 

Jesus’ Pain and our pain too: A Crusader’s Reflection

On 28 Jan 2019, at 8:59 pm,  Crusader Will wrote in response to the reading of our prayer group on Thursday 24 January: ( See link below)

The Reading was: “Despite My Divinity, I feel sickened by and disgusted with the sins of man”    January 14, 2013 @ 6:12pm______________________________________________________________

I think that all of us have been feeling this pain that Jesus says He is feeling.

It is like a background presence.

It is an ache in the heart.

It arises whenever we see a false shepherd, a wicked leader, an offensive image, a public sinner,  the report of some iniquity somewhere.
With me it is usually a dull ache, rarely a savage twinge. 
It nags away at us.
It calls us to prayer, but often we feel overwhelmed, despondent as to whether any response in our heart is actually changing anything, though it confirms us in our determination to persist.
I look upon this pain as purgatorial in its effects on us, if we accept its purifying powers.
It is a constant reminder of the danger  we  are all in.
We cannot ignore it.
it will not let us ignore it.
Crusader Will

Responses to Crusader Will’s reflection:

Remnant Survivor:
“… you explained it so well. You hit the nail on the head…. It will resonate and touch many Crusaders’ hearts.”

“Yes. It’s true; we feel Jesus’ Pain. What you wrote is beautiful.”                and

“Its very private, very personal, very touching….  It even links with a message I read about us feeling Jesus’s pain.”

“Never before, since My Crucifixion, has Christianity endured such persecution

My dearly beloved daughter, My Tears flow in great torrents at this time as the Holy Word of God is being torn asunder.

Love for Me, Jesus Christ, has dissipated and the spirit of My Church is drying up so that, soon, it will become but just a desert. It will be bereft of life and only the true faithful among My Church will keep the Heart of My Love beating steadily, while everything else, which surrounds it, will become dehydrated with every ounce of life sucked from it.
Never before, since My Crucifixion, has Christianity endured such persecution because of contempt against the Word of God.

All that is held sacred in My Father’s Heavenly Kingdom is being decimated by man, whose heart no longer feels love for his Creator God the Most High. Those who remain faithful to Him, and who love and cherish Him, will feel His Pain within their hearts like a sword, which pierces and inflicts terrible suffering but which will not kill. For those with true love for God will be unable to separate from Him because they are attached to Him by an umbilical cord, which cannot be severed.

God, through His Mercy, will destroy His enemies who try to steal the souls of those whose names are contained in the Book of Life. My Time is almost upon you.

Never give up hope or despair, when you witness the work of My nemesis and the speed by which his cunning wicked ways are accepted by unsuspecting souls. I Am first most a God of Great Patience and My Mercy will be poured over the human race in abundance amidst the flames of My Love. These flames will instil a renewal of faith in Me by those who have fallen away from Me, just as they will destroy Satan and every demon and fallen angel who hold hostage those souls who belong to Me,but who have separated from Me.

My Time will come, but not before the world will see the signs foretold in the Book of Revelation and the Book of Truth. Do not fear Me. Prepare for Me. Reject the false promises made by My enemies. Remain true, always, to My Word. My enemies will have no part in My Kingdom. My beloved faithful, including those who call out to Me, during the Warning, will never die. For theirs is the New Kingdom – My Kingdom – the One promised to Me, the Messiah, the King for all time – a world without end.

This may be a time of confusion, division, sadness and a longing for those who represent Me on this earth to proclaim the Truth. But know this. I Am the Truth. The Truth never dies. My Kingdom is eternal and you, My beloved children, belong to Me.

Come. Stay close to Me. I will lead you to your rightful inheritance. Trust in Me. Listen to Me through these Messages – the Book of Truth. It is God’s Gift to you so that you will never forget My Promise to come again to judge the living – those alive on this earth as well as those who died in My Favour.

I will show signs of every kind all over the world now. Those who are blessed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit, will know they have been sent to you by the Command of My beloved Father.

Go in Peace. Listen to Me only through these messages at this time.
I love you all dearly and I have claimed you as Mine. Let no man attempt to steal one single soul from Me, for he will suffer eternal torment for his actions.

Your Jesus”

Crusader Will: Groundwork for Crusaders

AM+DG

 

Someone is shouting:

Clear a path in the desert.

Make a straight road

for the Lord our God.  (Isaiah 40:3)

 

You are blazing a trail.

You are preparing a way.

You are finding things out

and going through an ups-and-downs process

so that you can for others’ sake

clear away a lot of debris

and have on hand

the tried -and-true treasures of the Church.

 

This is the fruit of your catechetical training

and of your decades of knowledge of Christian doctrine

that started building in your teens

all those years ago.

So don’t be discouraged.

your time for being taken seriously will come,

and be instantly able to be assimilated..

Crusader Will: Try to Separate Them.

 

 

        (tune of LOVE AND MARRIAGE)

Faith and morals,

faith and morals –Christ vs satan

they’re the basis of our earthly quarrels.

Cut through the primordial prattle,

cut to the cross-and-serpent battle.

 

 

Faith and morals,

faith and morals –

they’re the basis of our churchly quarrels.

See the millions apostate,

there before the devil prostrate.

 

Try, try, try to separate them.

You only get

capital sinners.

Try, try, try Saints and Spinners

and you only get

(dumpty diddley dumpty diddley dum)

doctrinal spinners.

 

Faith and morals,

faith and morals.

It’s no use just resting on your laurels.

Ask your heavenly Mother.

You can’t dump either one,

and not offend her Son.

So get out there and save your

bro-o-o-ther.
