“If you perchance have any bad habit, endeavor to break from it speedily, now that God calls you. And as long as your conscience smites you, rejoice; for it is a sign that God has not yet abandoned you. But amend, give up sin at once; for if not, the wound will become gangrenous, and you will be lost.” (p. 79)

Much like other Catholic spiritual works dedicated to Lenten reflections, St. Alphonsus Liguori’s Meditations and Readings for Every Day of Lent offers daily reminders that we must not waste a moment in amending our lives. Our Lord died on the Cross to save us, and He wants us to go to Heaven, but at a certain point the obstinate sinner will have no more chances to return to God. So we must make every effort to amend now, lest we discover too late that we have squandered our last opportunity to petition God’s mercy.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them.” (Romans 1:18-19)

With the recent widespread criticism of the document authorizing the blessing of same-sex unions, Fiducia Supplicans, we can see hints that Francis and his collaborators may have entered new territory in their assaults against Catholic Truth. And yet, as most Traditional Catholics understand all too well, Fiducia Supplicans is simply one of Francis’s countless intolerable offenses against the Faith.

Francis’s unholy alliance with the globalists has alerted many Catholics to the reality that anti-Catholic interest groups play a far greater role in shaping Vatican policy today than do actual Catholics. For good reason, then, we beg God to convert or remove Francis.

There is a perpetual battle between two sides: on the side of God are sound doctrine and truth; and on the side of Satan are fables and the desires of those with itching ears.

It is fiendish gaslighting for Francis and Tucho to tell us that Fiducia Supplicans constitutes an “innovative broadening" of the Church’s teachings about blessings and then insist that only hypocrites and haters see it as an “innovative broadening” of what the Church has always taught.

When thinking about how best to resist Francis (and any heretic the next conclave might elect), we should recognize that God has given us the example of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who fought these same battles long before the world had heard of Jorge Bergoglio.

In God’s Will: The Life and Works of Sr. Mary Wilhelmina, Foundress of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, Sister Wilhelmina’s religious community wrote of her “marching song”:

“She developed a deep and trusting abandonment to Divine Providence. As an old nun, she would walk the halls of the convent, beating time with her cane and chanting her ‘Marching Song’: God’s will, God’s will, God’s will be done! Praise be the Father! Praise be the Son! Praise be Divine Love, Lord Holy Ghost! Praised be in union with the heavenly host!” (p. 76)

No Catholic is required to believe the messages from the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the three children of Fatima, but the reactions to the messages from high-ranking churchmen reveal several vital aspects of the current crisis in the Church. The conclusions we can draw from these reactions do not depend on the Fatima messages being legitimate — all that matters in this analysis is that the churchmen under consideration purported to believe them. And yet, if we honestly assess the way in which Church’s leaders have acted in light of the messages of Fatima, we can see something absolutely staggering: their actions paint the same picture of apostasy as that apparently contained in the complete Third Secret of Fatima that they have concealed.
