Reading from the Bible

Job 22:

Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:

2 Can a man be profitable to God? Can a wise man be profitable to him?
3 Does it please the Almighty that you are just? Does he gain if your ways are perfect?4 Is it because of your piety that he reproves you—that he enters into judgment with you?
5 Is not your wickedness great,your iniquity endless?
6 You keep your relatives goods in pledge unjustly, leave them stripped naked of their clothing.
7 To the thirsty you give no water to drink,and from the hungry you withhold bread;
8 As if the land belonged to the powerful,and only the privileged could dwell in it!
9 You sent widows away empty-handed,and the resources of orphans are destroyed.
10 Therefore snares are round about you, sudden terror makes you panic,
11 Or darkness—you cannot see! A deluge of waters covers you.
12 Does not God, in the heights of the heavens, behold the top of the stars, high though they are?
13 Yet you say, “What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?
14 Clouds hide him so that he cannot see as he walks around the circuit of the heavens!”
15 Do you indeed keep to the ancient way trodden by the worthless?
16 They were snatched before their time;their foundations a river swept away.
17 They said to God, “Let us alone!” and, “What can the Almighty do to us?”
18 Yet he had filled their houses with good things. he designs of the wicked are far from me!
19 The just look on and are glad,and the innocent deride them: 20 “Truly our enemies are destroyed, and what was left to them, fire has consumed!”
21 Settle with him and have peace. That way good shall come to you:
22 Receive instruction from his mouth, and place his words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored; if you put iniquity far from your tent,
24 And treat raw gold as dust, the fine gold of Ophir as pebbles in the wadi,
25 Then the Almighty himself shall be your gold and your sparkling silver.
26 For then you shall delight in the Almighty, you shall lift up your face toward God.
27 Entreat him and he will hear you, and your vows you shall fulfill.
28 What you decide shall succeed for you, and upon your ways light shall shine.
29 For when they are brought low, you will say, “It is pride!But downcast eyes he saves.
30 He will deliver whoever is innocent; you shall be delivered if your hands are clean.

(The last verse reminded us of Cardinal Pell)

Virgin Mary: You must fight every law and every argument which promotes abortion

19 January 2013 @ 8:45pm

My child, when evil acts escalate, as in the way nations attempt to introduce abortion, the Holy Spirit descends upon God’s children, so that they can gain the courage to fight back.

Abortion is the gravest sin in the Eyes of my Father. No reason can be presented to Him, which can justify this vile act against the Creation of God. Abortion is an affront to the Sacred Creation of humanity and brings with it a terrible punishment.

Every argument will be made to justify it amongst your nations, but nothing can make it ever acceptable to God. No one has the right to interfere with the Gift of Life, created by God, the Creator of all that is.

Many poor souls believe that they show compassion when they condone abortion, but all they do is condone murder, which is a grave sin. You must fight every law and every argument, which promotes abortion and safeguard the life of God’s children, inside the wombs of their mothers. You must never feel fear when you proclaim the sacredness of life.

Pray, pray, pray for those souls who cannot accept the importance of life and the Sacred Act of God’s Creation. These souls need your prayers and patience. Show them you will not accept their demands to get you to condone the murder of an unborn child of God.

Your beloved Mother

Mother of Salvation

 

 

 

 

“The Great Accuser” – a Crusader’s reply

 

AM+DG

The Great Accuser:

First, a little background, in case you missed this bit of news:

At his daily Mass at Santa Marta, Pope Francis said :

“In these times, it seems like the ‘Great Accuser’ has been unchained and is attacking bishops. True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. The ‘Great Accuser’, as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job,roams the earth looking for someone to accuse‘. A bishop’s strength against the ‘Great Accuser’ is prayer, that of Jesus and his own, and the humility of being chosen and remaining close to the people of God, without seeking an aristocratic life that removes this unction. Let us pray, today, for our bishops: for me, for those who are here, and for all the bishops throughout the world.” (11th Sept. 2018)

See the original article here:   https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope-francis/mass-casa-santa-marta/2018-09/pope-francis-mass-great-accuser-bishops-scandal.html

On 13th September, 2018, LifeSiteNews reported:

“Pope at Mass today again referred to the Great Accuser who is “among us.”

…  “Reaction came quickly to the Pope’s words, with many saying that it sounded like the Pope was suggesting that uncovering the sins of a bishop, such as abuse, was somehow the work of the devil. 

In that sense, some viewed the Pontiff as himself taking the role of the accuser, in order to silence those critical of members of his hierarchy and to hush discussion about clergy sex abuse.”

Crusader Chris  – in reply to Francis’ :

Sorry to say, but this latest ploy of Francis is almost diabollically cunning in that it twists Scripture to deflect attention from himself!!

The Great Accuser he refers to is not only in the story of Job but in Revelations (Chpt 12:10) and in the famous vision of Pope Leo XIII in 1884...

BUT but but, Satan’s accusations were NOT about scandal and misdeeds. His words to the Lord, accusing God’s people, were along these lines:-

“Your people only love You and are faithful and dedicated to You because You pour blessings upon them. If You take away all their blessings, they will curse You!”

That became Job’s test. And in 1884 the Devil was granted 100 years by God to do his damnedest and test His Church, which is our current trial through Communism and Modernism and increasing anti-Christian secularism.

In his homily Francis is cleverly equating the Great Accuser with Archbishop Vigano!! – reversing the truth, insinuating that goodness and integrity and honesty are evil. So, so very very deceptive – especially for Catholics who don’t know their Scripture!

In the same homily, quoted in that News Flash, Francis presents humility, humbleness, in the context of simplicity, in opposition to “seeking an aristocratic life” – but that’s his favourite stance, the class war again about the rich & poor.

But true humility is an interior position. It requires lowering oneself, admitting guilt & being repentant! It is the opposite of pride and arrogance and self-aggrandisement. Humility is littleness. The soul recognises its own fraility, sinfulness, limitations and its need for God. What Scripture calls “poor in spirit”.

Just my pennyworth

God bless
