4. Heed not the roars of opposition for human opinion means nothing in My Kingdom  (30 August 2014)

 Overview of the Readings

The first reading (Psalm68) was entitled in the Bible “Salvam me fac Deus”. It was the Passion of Jesus (signifying the Passion of the Mystical Body of Christ), which is occurring now and which will increase significantly. There were tears from some, as we listened to the words  – “I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none… gall for my food, …vinegar to drink”.

 David also tells us of the stern Justice of God – “…their table…a stumbling block… let thy wrathful anger take hold of them,… Let them be blotted out of the book of the living;…”

Words of encouragement followed – “seek ye God, and your soul shall live” and “[36] For God will save Sion, and the cities of Juda shall be built up. And they shall dwell there, and acquire it by inheritance…”

(See Bible reading at the end of this post.)

In the next reading, (from the Book of Truth ), Jesus tells us how vicious is the evil one, who will not easily let go of the souls he has ensnared , and even be a thorn in the side of those who Love Him. But He assures of His love and compassion for these souls. He also makes a list of instructions to help us – chat to Him, offer Him our trials and little sacrifices  etc. He knows we are busy, so He shows us what we can do, by making simple suggestions. He also gives special instructions about spreading the Seal to as many people as we can.

 Whereas Psalm 68 (the bible Reading)  talked about Christ’s Passion, this reading seems to explain in detail of what things this passion will be comprised. This reading now continues to describe the division between those who love Jesus and those who will twist the truth. He warns us of the strategies they will employ: couched language, old-fashioned laws, laws which legalize sin, Christian laws being banned, and lifestyle choices. Jesus particularly describes the women who have aborted their babies and the suffering they will endure, as well as nations who will be punished by God the Father because of these sins,

The reading finishes (it is quite a long one) with Jesus telling us of the very special graces He gives to those who attend daily Mass. Jesus tells us that He yearns for us, He wants to be closer to us, that He is waiting for us and that we will be happier and at peace.

The third reading continues on this theme of the “passion” of the Church and of the  Faith in describing the oaths that priests will have to take. Jesus tells us that “Ecclesiastical masonry has now reached the greatest level of power within my most holy Church on Earth”. Jesus tells us of  a new liturgy –appealing to a secular world, and which will be introduced very quickly and surprise everyone with its swiftness. Objections to it in every diocese will be easily dismissed and the voices of the “loyal servants” will not be heard in public. He tells us that “ecclesiastical masonry has now reached the greatest level of power within my most holy Church on Earth”.

This indeed hurts us to the core of our being that this can happen to our beloved Faith and to the loyal priests who will be helpless. This is just the beginning. Jesus is warning us now, so  it must be very soon.

The fourth and final reading tells us of suffering souls, and how this attracts the evil one because of the graces given to them. Jesus tells us of the gift of discernment, which He describes as the greatest gift and how this gift will help bring Him more souls. Jesus reminds us of his commandment to “Love one another as I love you.” He tells us that if we can’t love our enemies then we will find it more difficult to come closer to Him.

Jesus tells us that we must uphold the Truth at all times – in all adversity. Jesus ends with a stern warning – that we must live our lives according to (all)  His Teachings  – otherwise we can’t say that we really to Him . The result for the mighty and the proud will be the anger of God and ‘the screaming and gnashing of teeth”.

Reading for Today from the Bible:   

(Douay Rheims) Psalm 68 20-37

 [20] Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, and my shame.

[21] In thy sight are all they that afflict me; my heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none. [22] And they gave me gall for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.[23] Let their table become as a snare before them, and a recompense, and a stumbling block. [24] Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; and their back bend thou down always. [25] Pour out thy indignation upon them: and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.

(Notes) [23] Let their table: What here follows in the style of an imprecation, is a prophecy of the wretched state to which the Jews should be reduced in punishment of their wilful obstinacy.

[26] Let their habitation be made desolate: and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles. [27] Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; and they have added to the grief of my wounds. [28] Add thou iniquity upon their iniquity: and let them not come into thy justice. [29] Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; and with the just let them not be written. [30] But I am poor and sorrowful: thy salvation, O God, hath set me up.

[31] I will praise the name of God with a canticle: and I will magnify him with praise. [32] And it shall please God better than a young calf, that bringeth forth horns and hoofs. [33] Let the poor see and rejoice: seek ye God, and your soul shall live. [34] For the Lord hath heard the poor: and hath not despised his prisoners. [35] Let the heavens and the earth praise him; the sea, and every thing that creepeth therein.

[36] For God will save Sion, and the cities of Juda shall be built up. And they shall dwell there, and acquire it by inheritance. [37] And the seed of his servants shall possess it; and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

Notes:[36] Sion: The catholic church. The cities of Juda, etc., her places of worship, which shall be established throughout the world. And there, viz., in this church of Christ, shall his servants dwell, etc.
