Pray and Work as Never Before
Richard Salbato May 15, 2011
Two days ago I wrote that I think it is too late to save the world from a world wide cleansing by God. It is even too late to mitigate this chastisement or even save some nations from it. It has already been postponed by Our Lady many times, but now it could happen any day now. Our failures have not just been religious and spiritual but also political and intellectual.
I want now to spend more
time in prayer and in working to save souls from Hell. This is not going to be
easy because today many if not most people are ignorant of their faith and especially
ignorant of sin. Bishop Sheen said: “The
sin of the twentieth century is the denial of sin.” What did he mean by
this? This ignorance is so prevalent in the Catholic Church today that Pope
Satan came to Adam and Eve to convince them that if they became the arbitrator of good and evil, eating from the tree of good and evil, they would be like God. When mankind did this the gates of Heaven were closed.
Now again today people are saying: “I do not believe God would want me to do this or that.” Man places his believe over God’s commandments. It is easy to know that people think this way now when we see that the majority of Catholics practice artificial birth control and yet the confessionals are empty. The majority of Catholics voted for the most pro-abortion candidate in history and do not consider this a sin. Catholic Bishops have given up the commandment to take care of the poor and gave that responsibility to the government. These bishops think if they vote for government charity they do not have to be charitable. Before this loss of the sense of sin, we Catholics had hundreds of orphanages, hospitals, food kitchens, homes for the aged, homes for troubled girls, and on and on. We no longer believe in individual charity but forced group charity. Charity is not charity unless it is freely given.
Jacinta of Fatima was told by Our Lady when in the hospital: “More people go to Hell for sins of the flesh than for any other reason.” And yet we have Catholic priests and bishops that do not think homosexuality is sinful, even teach in private that masturbation is not a sin. Sex not only is mankind’s greatest sin against nature but kills more people than all the wars put together.
Gluttony is a major sin and in fact it kills people. But look around. Sit on a corner and watch all the people go by. I think people are looking at this problem wrong. In my day no one ate except at a sit down meal with the entire family. Now children and even adults come home and open the refrigerator before doing anything else. They eat when ever they want and whatever they want and no one corrects them.
As I have written before, abortion is the result but not the problem. Dating is the problem. In my day no one dated without a chaperone. In confession I say that I will avoid the mere occasion of sin and yet parents allow kids to date and even adults date and do things that tempt them to sin.
The greatest sloth in the world today is intellectual sloth. We do not want to know our faith, our history, a trade, anything. We want to play through school and then have those who studied hard take care of us. We are so uneducated we do not understand the news and therefore do not even watch it. Our government is telling us that if we do not raise the debt ceiling it will be catastrophic. It will not and voting against it would be the best thing we can do. We are too uneducated to even dispute this claim.
we love God with all our being? Not if
we do not do it His Way. The early Church as not called Catholic or
or self interest at the expense of society is the cause of all these sins.
Think about the flooding of the
do not believe anymore that we can save
I am not a prophet but I have read what the bible and prophets say about the coming chastisement and it boils down to two thirds of the world dying and the one third left will envy the dead. This is not the great worry of mine but I worry about how many of these billions of people will go to Hell.
think of three great saints that had visions and insights on the amount of
people who go to Hell. One said that just in
It is time for you and I to preach sin and Hell without compromise. This is the most charitable thing we can do now.
