  • With the added info/quotes from Bob, then yes, I agree with you, Matthew.  The many Bobs of this world have drunk the koolaid, they are tired of fighting new-Rome, they are tired of fighting for Tradition and yearn for “normalcy” and “peace” in the Faith.  

    I’m sure the early Christians were tired of being scared of persecutions constantly, but instead of giving up to lukewarmness, their fears, worries and exhaustion drove them to prayer and a deeper attachment to God, who provided them with strength to carry on through the tribulations of the day.  Sadly, most of us fail to learn this lesson too.  But today is a new day and we can start again.  Yet the Bobs of this world have, seemingly, given up.  Let’s pray they come to their senses and aren’t lost due to spiritual sloth.  For we all must pray for the grace of perseverance and patience, lest our human nature get overwhelmed.

    PV: You “seem” obsessed about this whole affair.  The “poem” is not necessary for salvation so quit defending it like it’s a dogma.


     
    Pax, let me give it another shot. After all, it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon, and I have nothing better to do before the Eagles game.
    On the thread in which Valtorta and the Poem were scurrilously attacked , never once did I make the claim that her work was necessary for salvation. Nor was I defending it as “dogma,” which all Catholics must agree to. I was reacting to an allegation by certain low-life members of CI, that within the pages of the Poem, viz. Vol.2 N199, an episode occurs in which St. Peter and the Blessed Virgin have an alleged affair, and that Our Lord Jesus angrily chides and scolds the apostle for having carried on in such a manner.
    Yes, I am deeply troubled by that kind of talk, and in that context, yes, I am, perhaps,  presently “obsessed.” Slanderous remarks, be they made about a putative heretic or a canonized saint, (or Bob), are not becoming Catholic behavior. But let’s not suggest that I was pushing Valtorta’s works as dogmatically binding on Catholics in order to achieve salvation. I was not. That is simply not true. Go back and read the sequence.

  • Anyone who inserts a defense of the “poem” in a thread not talking about it, is obsessed.
