  • "You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis. No one, ever, will prevail against your Faith, beloved Brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day. "

    Note-he states they are happy, not the anger and rage often boiling in some and some circles......their abuse in their time was worse in many ways....some ways, maybe not....

  • Point taken.  But I think someone would have to be inhuman to not at least pass through a period of anger and despair when they realize what's happening.  The question is, is it righteous anger or blinding rage and hatred?  

    I can imagine being happy and content in Athansius' time, but not in ours, because the devil has launched more of a two-pronged attack.  It's not just the heresy of Vatican II; it's the whole political situation and the rise of Judeo-Masonry, which as you said elsewhere is most likely Mystery Babylon.  This is just not a happy time no matter how you slice it, not even if you are in the underground where it seems like most people can't be trusted or are deluded in some way, where even sedevacantists support the Iraq war and listen to Jewish neo-con radio like Michael Savage, half-brainwashed, and you never know if someone is a Freemason, gay, or a gay Freemason; an infiltrator, a false prophet, a cryptic occult heretic or somehow trying to twist your brain around and just put you on the wrong path.  I know that many people in my life have been demonic agents who tried to lead me astray already.  And then what does the future hold?  Either we are on the verge of a financial crash or natural disasters or the Three Days of Darkness, but it can't keep going on like this.  

    If you are HAPPY then more power to you.  I feel safer being paranoid.  Right now my job is to not allow myself to be TOO paranoid or to see the devil everywhere, but to concentrate on God even when it seems like He has disappeared from the world and we've all of us been abandoned. Truly, in our time you have to take a leap of faith, to believe that God will pull you through against all the odds.  Miracles can happen; mountains can be moved; the Immaculate Heart can and will triumph.  He can stop the seemingly invincible Mystery Babylon with the tiniest motion of His Divine hand, and He will when the time is right, as the Apocalypse would seem to reveal.
