“You do the works of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning. He is a liar, and the father thereof.” (cf. John 8:41, 44)
In the Second Part of this article, I addressed the vaccine mandate and the Vatican’s complicity in this globalist program to further a new world order. The First Part outlined the devil’s grand ambition to depopulate the earth.
DUTY TO RESIST
It has been said that most of the people, most of the time, will follow the path of least resistance. This is due to our fallen human nature. At some point, however, a person has a duty to resist evil. The means of resistance should be in proportion to the evil and drastic measures should only be used if there is a reasonable chance of improving the situation, according to Just War Theory. However, if saintly voices tell you to do something, do not be afraid to be the next Joan of Arc!
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn thought that people should offer at least passive resistance to Communist propaganda. At the very minimum, he said that you should not participate in lies. His 1974 invective against the ordinary citizen of Moscow has eerie parallels to our situation today:
“We have so hopelessly ceded our humanity that for the modest handouts of today we are ready to surrender up all principles, our soul, all the labors of our ancestors, all the prospects of our descendants – anything to avoid disrupting our meager existence. We have lost our strength, our pride, our passion. We do not even fear a common nuclear death, do not fear a third world war (perhaps we’ll hide away in some crevice), but fear only to take a civic stance! We hope only not to stray from the herd, not to set out on our own, and risk suddenly having to make do without the white bread, the hot water heater, a Moscow residency permit.”
How many people will now wear a mask without a mandate, even if it is ineffective against catching or transmitting a virus? How many parents will send their children to school with a mask all day even though the young and healthy are not at risk from the virus, and without considering the mask’s detrimental effects, both physical and psychological? How many people will take the vaccine without considering the connections with abortion, its potential harmful effects, or the mounting data demonstrating its futility? How many people will accept a vaccine passport, without considering the control over their life they cede to the State? Who is going to stop this, if not you? When is this going to stop, if not now?
As far as resisting a bad Pope goes, St. Robert Bellarmine had this to say (De Romano Pontifice, Book II, Ch. 29):
“Just as it is licit to resist the Pontiff who attacks the body, so also is it licit to resist him who attacks souls or destroys the civil order or above all, tries to destroy the Church. I say that it is licit to resist him by not doing what he orders and by impeding the execution of his will. It is not licit, however, to judge him, to punish him, or to depose him.”
THE TRIUMPH IS ASSURED
Our Lady has promised at several times and places, most notably at Fatima (1917), that Her Immaculate Heart will eventually triumph. If you believe that, however, you could be accused of a certain “triumphalism.” Modernists do not like that. They cannot stand the idea of one religion being ‘superior to another’ unless it is their own religious initiative, like the United Religions.
Our Lady of Good Success foretold the problems of today centuries ago. She told Mother Mariana de Jesús Torres that: “Unbridled passions will give way to a total corruption of customs because Satan will reign through the Masonic sects, targeting the children in particular to ensure general corruption … This apparent triumph of Satan will cause enormous suffering to the good pastors of the Church … Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded despite the light, give their hand to the Church’s enemies and do their bidding.” We seem to be experiencing that now.
However, things could be turning around shortly. Our Lady of Good Success also prophesied: “But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground … Then will the Church, joyful and triumphant like a young girl, reawaken and be comfortably cradled in the arms of My most dear and elect son of those times.”
This “elect son” seems to be a civil ruler whose description appears to match that of the French Monarch of other prophecies. Mother Mariana also mentions a “Prelate who shall restore the spirit of Her priests.” That brings to mind the reforming Pope “Peter the Roman” of the St. Malachy prophecy.
Our Lady of Fatima asked people to pray the Rosary every day, and perform the First Saturday devotions. She assured us that Her Immaculate Heart will triumph, Russia will be consecrated and converted, and that a period of peace will be given to the world. For most Catholics, that cannot happen soon enough!
