I feel it is time for a post from an Irish poster who is actually in Ireland.
For the past few days I have stayed off Cathinfo, basically because people were claiming that I was insane, and in my frustration at this being permitted on this forum, I lashed out at matthew. If Matthew is innocent, may God forgive me. But I have recently being devoting myself more to prayer, and I know that this is a more profitable exercise than conversing on the internet. One should use the internet to educate themselves and to arrange practical things with others, but other than this it becomes a vice, may God forgive us. I have begun doing penance as an SSPX priest has implored us to do, and in it I find happiness of a clean conscience. All of the sacraments of the church are powerless to save us if we do not have the interior disposition and unity with the church that joins us to the suffering Christ. If we suffer for Him in this life, we pay our debts. If we love Him above all things, He will surely call us His own. If we prepare ourselves for death while there is still time, it is because He has given us this grace, and if He has His justice appeased, we shall find mercy from Him at our judgement. We shall be accused, but if we are truly His, we will find Him pleading for us before the angels. The crown awaits for those who renounce themselves.
So St Patricks day is a public holiday here, most of the adult population will be getting drunk. Most of the young ones will be watching vulgar television. St Patrick chased the snakes of false religion out of Ireland, but now the country is over run with them again. We need a restoration of the Holy Catholic church to return God to this land, and this will only happen when we cast off the yoke of those men and women, those snakes, who falsely claim the name "Catholic" and yet lie, from our holy church. The SSPX is instrumental in the restoration. It is up to the SSPX to restore the Catholicism of the church on earth.
