YOU Are The Most Unlikely Yet Chosen One
Man Has Played "Maytag Repairman" To Something Only Saints Can Fix: The Fall & Humanity.
Barbara J. Farrah is correct, that…
Archbishop Carlos Vigano is correct, that…
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was correct, that…
Locke, Mill and before Mill, James Madison and the founding fathers’ “We The People”, were incorrect.
I enjoy reading Celia Farber’s Substack. Yesterday an exasperated and deeply upset Celia wrote this (I suspect she is not alone in these sentiments).
When I get quiet, it’s because I’m absolutely overwhelmed. The problems are so complex and I am untwisting them at a slower and slower pace.
The past week has been very challenging. For all of us, I suspect.
We crave relief, mercy, some kind of break in the white-knuckle ride. But suddenly, we are without the benevolent mother spirit. We have to “be that for ourselves.”
But Celia, we are NOT without a benevolent Mother spirit, her name is Mary and she loves you and she loves me and she loves you, fair reader, whether you approve of it or not. And she wasn’t bored with playing Charades with Her Son, Jesus, St Michael and St John The Evangelist, when she asked for a “hall pass” to leave the Eternal Kingdom and start appearing as an apparition to lonely children on The Continent.
She was sent to undo the lethal damage done to Her Son’s Christendom by this millstone that all the Sex Cult of Death has now placed firmly around their necks and is trying desperately to festoon around yours: Modernity and its all its perverted trappings of deadly, fake “equities”.
I am going to quote Mrs. Farrah from here on out but before I do, I’ll give you a spoiler:
YOU, yes you fair reader, have been chosen by God to live in this time of state sponsored mutilated 9 year olds, global defense of pedophilia and consumption of poison as nutrition. Yes, YOU are the most unlikely of Don Quixotes, King Arthur’s and Charles The Magnificent’s (Charlamagne for the uninitiated) and that’s the point: the bad guys will never see you coming, but YOU must accept the mission, unworthy and damaged as we are.
I am all in. Are you?
From Mrs Farrah’s essay at Crisis Magazine.
In his writings on Fatima and Russia, the Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen pointed out that the world has “become so used to judging temporal events in terms of other events,” that it has lost sight of that “greater standard of judgment, namely, the Eternal.” Michael Warren Davis, in an article for Crisis, has recently accused another archbishop, Carlo Maria Viganò, of having fallen into precisely this error, becoming so absorbed in worldly events, so “swept away by trends in modern politics,” that he has let “the clamor of current events drown out…the voice of God,” and “blind him to the evils of the Russian government.”
I strongly disagree. In fact, if we look at Viganò’s writings in the light of Sheen’s discussion of Fatima, we can see that just the opposite is true. Far from Viganò being the one drowning out the voice of God, it is actually the entire Western world that is guilty of drowning out not only the voice of God but even the very clear signs of His intervention in and movement through world events.
To understand this, we must step back and address what Mary meant when she spoke of Russia’s errors. The most common interpretation is that she was referring to the errors of communism. But there are several reasons to reject this interpretation….
Sheen points us in a different direction—specifically, to the year 1858. He asks us to look not only at the world events of that year but at the Eternal ones as well. Rejecting the commonly held view that the Modern Age started with the rise of science, something that is not at odds with Faith, he argues that it began instead with the writing of three seminal works: Darwin’s On the Origins of Species, Mill’s On Liberty, and Marx’s A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy. In those three works, Man summarized the errors of the Modern Age and announced his independence from God: we were not divinely created but rather evolved from mere matter; there is no higher authority than man to which we must answer, freedom is license, the only laws are those we choose to make; and Man and history are driven by economics and politics not religion and certainly not anything spiritual.
We’ll skip the narrative on the origin of the errors to get right at the heart of the matter and why Our Lady left the Cribbage game.
In the Blessed Mother’s appearance at Lourdes, Sheen notes, God answered Man’s arrogant claim of independence and provided proof of his errors. Her very appearance said yes, there is more than matter; yes, there is a God; yes, there is a Heaven; yes, Man was born in Original Sin; and yes, Man owes obedience to God and reparations for the sins committed against Him. Every error contained in those three seminal works was contradicted in that one announcement: “I am the Immaculate Conception.”
Thus, Sheen says, began the Modern Age—not with science and reason, but with the denial of Original Sin and God’s response.
But Man did not take notice of, nor heed, that Eternal pronouncement, that Eternal judgment.
ENTER OUR LOVING MOTHER
The danger in believing Mary was pointing specifically to communism and to Russia lay in believing the problem is Russia and the error communism, when in fact the error is believing that man is nothing more than a rational animal who can fix all his social problems through the political and economic policies enacted by a secular State.
When Mary appeared at Fatima, her first announcement was this: “I am from Heaven.” As God responded to Mankind’s announcement of its separation from Him in 1858, so He responded in 1917 to its erection of a godless State as the new path to human happiness and freedom: Mary stepped into time and announced that Heaven exists. And if Heaven exists, then there is a higher authority. Salvation and redemption will not come from a man-made State but from God and only from God. And to prove this, to drive the message home, Mary would appear six times. And on the last one, she would bring direct proof from Heaven, a miracle that would prove the lie that man is the highest authority on earth and fully capable of fixing that earth as he alone wills it to be fixed.
But even with a miracle witnessed by tens of thousands, Modern Man again said no and did not heed the message.
And the Soviet State grew and did indeed spread its errors across the world. Not the errors of communism, but rather the modernist errors that man is independent and can create his own path to utopia by means of the secular State.
VIGANO AND SHEEN ARE CORRECT AND YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM
The issue isn’t Viganò being blind to the evils of the Russian government. It is the West that is blind to the evils that have permeated its own existence to its very core. It is the modernist Church that is blind to the evils of thinking it right to replace sacraments with social action, taking government money to feed bellies at the expense of feeding souls.
Viganò looks at the WEF, the IMF, the UN, NATO, the EU, and all the other associations that have risen in the West and sees them not in terms of other worldly events but in terms of the Eternal. He sees them as Pope Leo XIII saw the secular associations of his day: efforts by man to fix the world apart from God and His Church.
He sees, too, that what they are trying to do is create a new, even more powerful State than the Russian one Mary warned us about, a Global State with the declared goal of creating a New World Order and a new transhuman creature. Modernism stripped man of his spiritual nature. Transhumanism seeks to strip him of his most basic human nature, reducing him to a mere machine, perfected by technology and microbiology.
Viganò has not become absorbed with politics. He has become absorbed with the Eternal, with seeing the Eternal in the affairs of the day, including both those things God seems to be moving as well as those things Satan seems to be moving. We don’t know if the Consecration occurred as Mary asked, but Viganò asks us to look at world events not just in terms of other world events, but in terms of spiritual events. What we do know is that the Soviet State collapsed in 1989. And we know that since that time, Russia has been undergoing a Re-Christianization while the entire Western world has been experiencing its De-Christianization.
AND NOW ITS UP TO YOU, ARTHUR, QUIXOTE AND CHARLES, THE UNLIKELY
Viganò asks us to see that it isn’t really Russia, or communism, or capitalism that we are battling but rather the Principalities, the Satanic forces that seek to enslave all men to a godless Global State. He asks us to consider that God is giving Russia—re-Christianizing Russia—the chance to atone for its sins by being the very thing that prevents that Global State from being created.
And is that so hard to imagine? Is it not just like our God? To let Russia atone for its sins and be the means of saving many souls?
And is this not also just like Our God: To once again respond to man’s rejection by guiding us to Him and Our Blessed Mother Mary? Is it not just like Him that, on the Marian feast day of the Annunciation of God’s Incarnation, the most modernist pope in the history of the Church got down on his knees and called the entire world, East and West, to likewise fall to its knees, every bishop, all people, on our knees, and not just recognize, finally, the Immaculate Conception, but more—to consecrate ourselves, and our entire world, to her Immaculate Heart, the Immaculate Heart of the Immaculate Conception, thereby saying, at last, after all these years, after all these appearances, finally: yes, there is a God; yes, there is a Heaven; yes, we are more than mere matter; yes, we are all sinners; and yes, we must obey God and make reparations for our sins.
In turning our eyes and our hearts to Mary, are we not finally conceding, agreeing with Pope Leo XIII, that apart from God, there will be no peace? Apart from God, no merely human institution, no godless State—no matter how big, how global—is going to save us.
And is that not just like our God? The most modernist pope of all time—leading the world to renounce the most fundamental errors of modernism?
Is it not a fitting way for the Eternal to announce the end of the Modern Age?
WE ARE NOT WITHOUT AN ADVOCATE, TURN TO MARY, SHE CAME TO RESCUE US FROM THIS EVIL
At just that moment when man can’t even define what a woman is, God reminds us that it is to a woman that He has given the power of overcoming evil, a woman who will crush the head of the Serpent. Modern Man lost Jesus. His Mother has returned to help us find Him. She has experience in this.
