    There is so much incessant noise being created through the debating/talking/speculating voices going on around us endlessly. Until Rome returns to the true Faith there can be no unity between priests. To say otherwise is to deny that the God knew what he was doing when he created the Church with the Pope as Supreme Head. Since Vatican II council we are all at the mercy of personal opinions expressed by individuals/priests/Bishops/Cardinals and even the Pope himself . The Tower of Babel is nothing compared to these times.

    Our Lord has not left us orphans. He has provided security for our times. The only time a Catholic is not giving an opinion about the Catholic faith is when he speaks the teachings contained in the pre-Vatican II Catechism. The only time a Catholic practices the true faith handed down from the Apostles is when he obeys the ten commandments. The only time prayers are heard by Our Lord are when they are offered through the intercession of His Holy Mother. She, and she only obtains God's Mercy for us sinners. She, and she alone suffered every millisecond of her life in perfect step by perfect step harmony with Her Divine Son.*

    None of us could have been redeemed, nor can be redeemed unless the price Mary paid to obtain mercy for each one of us - is acknowledged. God's justice demands it! If it is not acknowledged there is no salvation.

    Because Mary was to be born sometime in history Our Lord showed us mercy, because she alone out of the whole human race, from start to finish, would absorb the fullness of His graces. He chose her because he knew she would seek Mercy for the rest of us, even for those who preceded her time on earth awaiting redemption in the 'Bosom of Abraham'. When Mary consented to be Our Lord's Mother she consented to be our Mother also. Looking back through the Old Testament God always chose leaders who could have saved themselves, but whom he knew when given the choice, would plead for the people they led. Moses is a great example of this:

    Exodus
    9And again the Lord said to Moses: See that this people is stiff necked: 10Let me alone,
    that my wrath may be kindled against them, and that I may destroy them, and I will
    make of thee a great nation.

    All the great saints made the same choice. Having paid the penalty for their own sins they could have gone straight to heaven but time and time again they chose to remain. One saint when offered a bejewelled crown chose the Crown of Thorns instead. It is through their merits that God has withheld judgement on us surviving Catholics. But even their charity was made possible by the fact that Mary alone could pass on what she had received in her Immaculate Heart. She passed on the extraordinary grace received when her heart was enlarged to accommodate it's magnitude for the whole human race - for each and every human being.

    So long as Christ remains in the Blessed Tabernacle Mary's heart will provide her Son's forgiveness without which it is impossible to be saved. If a soul directly approaches Christ on Calvary for mercy it is because Mary has let it to the foot of the Cross by the graces she alone possesses in her Immaculate Heart.

    And so it is in our day. Keep the ten commandments; hold firm to the teachings of the Church clearly expounded in the pre-Vatican II catechism; and pray the Rosary . Offer spiritual Communions when praying through our daily Missals honouring the saints whose mediation is so powerful. Rome will be restored to the true Faith if we keep it ourselves. The babbling voices will be silenced one day - that is for sure. Let's start silencing them now by refusing to take part in them.


    Romans 11
    33O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How
    incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable his ways! 34For
    who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor?
    35Or who hath first given to him, and recompense shall be made him?
    36For of him, and by him, and in him, are all things: to him be glory for ever.
    Amen.

    SONG of MARY

    My soul doth magnify the Lord:
    And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour

    Because He hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaid:
    for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
    For He that is mighty hath done great things to me:
    and holy is His Name.
    And His mercy is from generation until generations,
    to them that fear Him.
    He hath showed might with His arm:
    He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
    He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
    and hath exalted the lowly.
    He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich
    he hath sent empty away.
    He hath received Israel His servant,
    being mindful of His mercy:
    As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham
    and to his seed for ever.

    * Our Lady asks on our behalf for God to take away our sins. Mary does not take them away. She does not remove them. Only God in Christ can remove them by the same grace that preserved Mary from sin and from having the ability to sin.
