A Reflection of a nun on the current government order to wear masks

AM+DG

Rorate Caeli published a sermon spoken by a religious superior to her community. It was based on ” the recent order from the civil government, requiring the wearing of a mask in public places”. It is based on the veil and wimple which many religious still wear today  (although most ditched it decades ago)

The wimple came into fashion during the Middle Ages, from about the 13th century onward. All women of good breeding wore a wimple, and, later on it was retained for some time (through the 15th century) for married women. The wimple was always worn with a veil. The idea for the wimple is that the woman’s face is visible, but her neck and her head are covered….

One reason for the wearing of a wimple is the same as the reason for wearing a veil: that of reserving one’s beauty for one’s spouse. …  A woman who is not “available,” that is, one who is married or given in religion, does not wish, in any way, to draw attention to her physical beauty, and so it became customary for such women to wear wimples and veils.

Fashions changed, but women religious retained the custom of wearing wimples and veils.

The wimple always leaves the face uncovered. What does the leaving of the face uncovered mean? First, it means that a woman who wears a wimple is not seeking to hide herself totally; she is not seeking to exclude or separate herself from others. She is not excluding communication with other persons. Her face is left free; in fact, the wearing of the wimple draws more attention to the face, since there is nothing else to draw our eye.

The wimple “forces” someone who meets us to focus on our face, not on our body. In a real sense, our face most fully expresses who we are. …

The wimple, then, helps us to relate to other human persons in a way that harmonizes very well with our vocation. The wimple draws attention to the “inner man” which finds expression in our face. Our wimple helps others to look at us in that way.

Last week, the civil government ordered that everyone must wear masks in public places. The mask covers half of the face: the nose and the mouth. It is hard to recognize people when they wear masks; this is why burglars wear masks (the same kind, where only the eyes are visible). We can look from our convent to see people walking the streets who wear masks, but who are otherwise dressed indecently. The symbolic message such people convey is almost an exact inversion of the message we convey. One cannot “see” the “inner man” because of the mask, but one’s eyes are drawn, instead, to the body.

The mask is a barrier to truly human communication, for communication is so much more than the exchange of words. We speak with our face, with our expressions. When we add the wearing of masks to the other regulations, especially that of so-called “social distancing,” and to the increase in “virtual meetings” and on-line classrooms,” we can see the mask as just one element in the dehumanizing tendency of our society.

Even though people may think it “dehumanizing” that we sisters wear all the coverings we do as part of our religious habit, the truth is that the layers we wear can be aids to make our relationship with other human persons “more human,” more personal. Because the use of masks is an element that frustrates truly human relationships, we have an instinctive aversion to wearing masks. The mask hides the human person; the wimple reveals the human person. 

Let us thank God for the gift of our wimples!”

Is this whole thing about controlling us, asserting power over us, bringing a negative attitude and feeling, making us feel irrelevant and dependant ?

Do these things, in fact dehumanize us?

This is what the evil one (and the evil sect and elite that he controls) wants. We are made in the image and likeness of God, and he hates this. He wants to drag us down. He wants to make us seem less human!

But ours is the last laugh, because we know the ending: the Immaculate Heart will triumph!

Prayer Theme: Special Graces

Prayers are Groups A & D: (See https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/crusade-prayer-group-format/ for details).

Reading from the Book of Truth

Roman Catholics, will need to hold Masses in refuges or Churches of safety

My dearly beloved daughter, you must gather together and search out those souls who are ignorant of the Truth.

Hold out your arms. Beckon them to listen to the Truth. Their lives and their souls may be lost, unless you help them to come to Me.

The Crusade, the Mission of the remnant Church on earth, will be just as challenging as those in the Middle Ages. It will not involve physical warfare, when an army fights a combat in normal war.

The war will be a spiritual one, although some wars will be a trigger, for millions of prayer groups setting up to dilute the power of the antichrist.

These prayers were written in Heaven and promise extraordinary Graces.

They have one purpose only and that is to save the souls of everyone; every child; every creed; each sex; every religious denomination and atheists. This is My greatest desire.

You, My disciples, are under My direction. The Graces I pour over you are already bearing fruit. Soon the powers I will give, through the Graces of the Crusade Prayers, will draw thousands of new souls.

How, you may think, can a small prayer group achieve such conversions? The answer is simple. It is because you are protected by My Father, and guided by Me directly, that you will succeed. You cannot fail. While you will experience many distractions and rows, as well as inner fighting, which is to be expected in this work, I will be at your side always.

Remember we are now preparing for the fallout of My poor sacred servants, which will be as a result of the coming schism, which is to erupt in the Christian Churches.

So, while the remnant army will be led by priests and other Christian clergy, many will be lay servants, as this will be a time where there will be a shortage of priests.

You, My disciples, will need to gather and store Communion Hosts for they will be difficult to access. Those amongst you, who are Roman Catholics, will need to hold Masses in refuges or Churches of safety.

A mission, similar to the German Nazi persecution where the Jews were hunted down, will be created to root out so called traitors of the New World Church, which you will be told is for all religions.

You will be accused of defiling the Mass, and their newly formed presentation of Mass, where I will not be present in the Holy Eucharist, for this will be an abomination in My Father’s Eyes.

My Body and Blood will be present in the Masses held in those centres and refuges where you pledge allegiance to the Transubstantiation to render the Sacrament of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to be authentic and accepted by My Father.

I will continue to instruct you as you continue to set up the Jesus to Mankind Prayer Groups around the world.

Many are already being formed every day. I thank those who have followed My instructions and show obedience.

Be at peace. You must be more confident. Leave fear aside as it is not from Me. We are now growing and spreading to every corner of the earth. Soon all will follow and when that happens, the prayers will change the world through conversion.

I love you all. I am thankful and touched that you immediately responded to Me through this important Mission, the biggest orchestrated in order to bring all sinners home to the Father and safe from the influence and temptations of the beast.

Your Jesus
