We live in a fake world... Fake news, fake weather (chemtrails) , fake wars (Those "damned Ruskies") , fake religion ("ecumenism") , fake economy (moneylaundering careers) and fake money (fiat dollars). This is, generally speaking, the abomination of desolation spoken of by Our Lord Jesus Christ. (Specifically, He was referring to the Novus Ordo Missae, but that's a topic for another post at another blog.) But let me expound on the fake economy. We live in a world where traditional trades and occupations have been gutted. Nobody farms anymore. Nobody knows how to raise chickens and tend crops. Nobody knows how to plaster a wall or embroider. Nobody knows how to build beautiful houses. We live in a cardboard and plasticized world.
The collapse will simply be tradition re-asserting itself. The collapse is occurring now, people are just not looking in the right places. Stop being fixated on the stock market and gold prices, neither of which is real. The stock markets are predicated either on companies that are not real (Facebook and Amazon have not made a thin dime of profit since their inception, yet have a market cap of over 10 billion between the two of them) or companies that are crime syndicates (Like Boeing, which spent trillions developing a plane that does not work). Ask the people in Greece and Venezuela what a collapse looks like. It looks like people starving to death. A month a ago the UN projected that 200 million people would starve by this summer. The only real problem with Greece and Venezuela is they are looking for the government to help them, and that is why they riot.
If a person wants to avoid the collapse, they need to rediscover tradition. ...
[Above is a post I put on a youtube video about economics.]
The vast majority of people will make the fatal mistake that the Russians and United States really are in competition over raw materials (oil, copper, iron, wood, farmland, etc.). Nothing could be further from the truth. WW3, like WW2, is an orchestrated dog-and-pony show to destroy what little remains of traditional culture. But to understand how we got here, we must go back to the source.
I told a priest last year that the fundamental tenant of modernism is not what Pius X wrote in Pascendi. The fundamental tenant of modernism is the harmony of dichotomy, where a person lives in opposition to himself without even knowing it. Most people, for instance, see no relationship between their religion and their job. They go to church on Sunday with one set of moral standards, and apply another when they are on the job on Monday. (It is like being a wolf and a cat at different times.) The social corollary is ecumenism. Nice Muslims and Catholics and Jews can all get along, so long as being "nice" means adapting the tenants of secular humanism and checking core beliefs at the door of the temple... but enough preaching to the choir.
Of course, there is a connection between WW3 and Our Lady of Fatima. And that is where I am going to circle back to the "New Mass". The promulgation of the Novus Ordo was the greatest evil of the 20th century, making Paul VI the worst pope, even worse than JPII and Pope Frantic, because he still clearly had the light of the Holy Ghost even in his promulgation. The roots of the New Mass go back to Pius XII. It was he who appointed the Great Architect, Annibale Bugnini, to head a liturgical commission in 1947 (the same year Sgt Pepper taught the band to play, for you Yellow Submarine fans.). The result was the "Holy Week Reforms", all of which have a decidedly Novus Ordo flavor, which were most certainly not a restoration ('twas the Council of Trent, a true "supercouncil" that did that.), and other damage to the calendar, such as the feast of "St Joseph the Worker", abolition of octaves and fast days, and etc. Our Lady of La Salette had said "by degrees Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of Antichrist". Too bad Pius IX did not take her more seriously.
At any rate, as many know, the New Mass emphasizes the "banquet aspect of the Mass" (which is a misnomer, because the Communion of the Faithful is not really a part of the Mass, but I will not bore the audience with nerdy theology.) It is, moreover, catagorically invalid, as it lacks a proper offertory, separation of the Sacred Species, and Epiclesis, just to name three of the major problems. This is what makes it a desolation. And this is what makes it an abomination. While I cannot say with certainty that the Novus Ordo is the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, it certainly fills the bill, and could be an approximate precursor. (This of course, is the Novus Ordo said in Latin, with all the bells and smells and proper rubrics. Only a moron would say that the hot and cold running sacrileges one sees at a typical Novus Ordo parish, which would make Luther blush...)
But what truly is the Mass? Forget the theological jargon. The Mass is the Foot of the Cross. The Mass is not merely the representation of Calvary, the Mass IS Calvary. That is because the Mass exists in eternity and not in time. The Preces for Corpus Christi, read during Benediction and Exposition, refers to the Blessed Sacrament as a "Memorial of the Passion". That is why the Mass was prefigured by Passover, and Isaac, and so many others. And that is why the Mass is offered "from the rising of the sun to its going down..." And so the Mass is a propitiatory sacrifice, a constant offering, a continuous offering for the continuous sins of the world.
And who do we find at the foot of the cross? In the theophany which Sr Lucia saw at Pontevedra Our Lady was at the foot of the Cross. And what is she doing there? To understand that we must understand her sorrows. [And what does all this have to do with WW3? Patience, I will get there.]
You will recall that at her first sorrow (and if you don't know the Sorrows of Our Lady... shame on you!) Simeon said that: "And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed." (This, by the way, alludes to: "For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins.") Now, this first sorrow was not just a blip on the radar that disappeared the moment Our Lady and St Joseph descended the Temple Mount. Rather, this sorrow was an ongoing "angst" (the Germans have much better words for worry and fear and anguish than we do) that continues to this day. Recall that Our Lady wept at La Salette, and that at Fatima Lucia reported that "she was always sad..." And why does Our Lady weep? Beginners think it is over the sufferings of her Son. No dear reader, Our Lady weeps for you and over your sins. Our Lady shed not a tear for her son. She had perfect faith, and knew her Son's mission. Saints have said that if the Romans had not nailed Our Lord to the Cross, Our Lady would have done it, and happily.
So what was Our Lady doing at the foot of the Cross. Was she merely some pansy wallflower as depicted by Zepherelli, or was she the daughter of Conan as depicted by Gibson? She was neither. At the Foot of the Cross Our Lady and Our Lord had a conversation about you and me and every human creature from Adam to Zebenezer, who will be born 30 seconds before the world ends (or maybe a little later). They had this conversation in time and eternity, at the foot of the cross and before the world began (which is why we were as responsible for the original sin as Adam, and why we paid the price alongside him) and even to this day. And each of sins was discussed, and the remedy for each discussed, and Our Lady weeping because despite all her lamentations and pleadings the majority of men would coldly turn away and drop into the abyss of hell. Our lady's sorrows are a one for one correspondence to Our Lord's passion, which is why they are infinite. (Some saints have said that were Our Lady's sorrows distributed in speciae from every creature from Lucifer through archangels through men through timber wolves through ants down to oak trees, everything would instantly be annihilated.)
So Our Lady is at the foot of the Cross of the True Mass, but missing at the New Mass, which means a desecration of truth. And this is what we have seen since the New Mass was instituted. We have seen the annihilation of Truth because we have seen the annihilation of grace and mercy, which comes only through Our Lady because she is Co-redemptrix and Mediatrix of all Graces. (as in each and every one, including the Consecration at Mass, which occurs but through her, which is why Christmas is such a big deal, because Christ only becomes incarnate through her, which is why at Lourdes she said "I AM the Immaculate Conception.) (And if Pius XII would have been paying attention, he would have solemnly defined, but he was too busy succumbing to Americanism and Ecumenism.) And because we are missing Our Lady, the Faith has corroded, the priests are lost stewards and pastors falling into the pits of relativism and irrelevance, as they show daily in their sermons, and the Church is splintered into a million shards, and families are utterly destroyed, and etc.
AND THAT IS WHY FATIMA IS THE SOLUTION. In Japan, shortly after the death of St Francis Xavier, all the priests were martyred, but the people kept the faith for over a century by the prayers of the Rosary. That was a precursor for our times. When WW3 hits, what will we have left, but the rosary? Even in Traditional Catholic communities, they are not prepared to make bread, nor grow wine. When supply chains collapse, the Mass will collapse, even if the priests are not hunted down. But, of course, they will be hunted down, and blamed by society for a multitude of evils (not without cause, for the Vatican is incredibly corrupt- more corrupt than Sodom- as "Pizzagate" shows.)
Little Jacinta saw it perfectly: "Don't you see all those roads and fields full of people, crying because they have nothing to eat?" We have had those words for well nigh 100 years, but nobody pays attention, because they think somebody is going to save them, whether it be pope or president or bishop or priest.
The only question left is, when the people are rocks at the "Holy Father", will he have deserved it?
