because we will be delivered from the evil one
and his deathly horde.
Relieved of the forces of evil in the world, the result can only be:- recognition, acknowledgment and appreciation of Truth, personified in Christ - and therefore recognition of His Mystical Body on earth, The Universal Church, 61 3 15 the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. (1st. Timothy)was the vital, pivoting factor:-
It seems to me that this time has come - the time for the removal of the evil one - giving The Church a very long period of peace.
But how will the evil one be removed from the earth - from creation into his own awful kingdom?
If The Universal Church is the light for the world, (47 5 14. Matthew) then to find out how the devil and his army are to be removed from the world, we must look to the basic characters of Catholicism:- The Vicar of Christ (the Pope), The Woman Clothed with The Sun, The Most-holy Eucharist.
It is these characteristics of The Church that lead to the defeat and removal of the devil from the world, The Church being - of course, The Kingdom on earth. When we pray therefore Thy Kingdom come, we are also saying:- Thy Church on earth become the light for the world.
Thus we observe that obedience to the Pope, devotion to Mary and adoration of Christ in The Eucharist, are the means of removing evil, in the person of the devil and his horde, from the world.
If one perceived one of these characters in a Catholic, he would find the other two characters there as well. All three exist together - they are inseparable.
On the other hand, if one of these characters is missing, it may well be that the other two are also missing. (This is something I have been wondering on, for some time - and only presume it to be true at this stage. It may be possible for example, for a Catholic ignorant of The Faith - as so many are - to desire these characteristics and even, to think he has them!)
In pondering on these characteristics we must observe that the first characteristic historically - The Mother of Christ, Mary - preceded Christ Who issued from her and Who then named His Vicar on earth, Peter, as His first Pope.
This is related intimately to the procession of the three Eras of Salvation, that of The Eternal-father, that of The Eternal-son and that of The Eternal-spirit, Whose Era we have at last, entered.
Indeed, it must be specially noticed that what was accomplished from the Era of The Eternal-father and though whom the Era of The Son became possible,
The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary.
The Immaculate Conception was and is, the highlight and the fulfilment of the Era of The Father.That being so, to recognise The Immaculate Conception
From Mary, The Immaculate Conception, came Jesus The Christ and from Him, His Universal Church lead by His Vicar on earth, the Bishop of Rome.
It is not hard to observe therefore, that the impulse towards God's Will being done on earth, must include recognition, acknowledgment and appreciation of The Immaculate Conception.
If Mary is The Immaculate Conception, and so The Church dictates, then she, in her immaculateness and in her motherhood of Christ, perfectly reflects The Eternal-father.
is to recognise the Eternal-father
and also, to recognise the Era
of The Eternal-father.
Obviously, that is the first step.
From that first step, we confirm having taken the next step and observe recognition of The Universal Church, The Mystical Body of The Eternal-son, Jesus Christ - Son of God, Son of Man.
To recognise Christ in His Universal Church we obviously must recognise Christ in The most holy Eucharist and to recognise Peter, His representative on earth.
It stands to reason then that the world must get the basics right so that the development of Salvation might proceed swiftly and wholly.
The basics of my reasoning above is firstly, recognition of The Immaculate Conception.
Therefore, the impulse - the key to the doorway of the new era of peace, The Era of The Spirit - that will promote the greatest speed towards the fullness of this new era is recognition of The Immaculate Conception.
Such a recognition will automatically and immediately point to The Universal Church Who has already proclaimed this most magnificent Truth, a Truth which gives glory to creation, to mankind - for Mary, who is The Immaculate Conception, is a creature herself.
The Era of St. Joseph, Father of Jesus
The Patriarch Joseph, husband of Mary, father of Jesus - therefore, perfectly reflecting The Holy Spirit - must also be recognised in his greatness when we consider the New Era of The Spirit.
Because to recognise Joseph is to recognise The Spirit Whose Era we enter.
Amidst the deception of the last century devotion to St. Joseph was another Catholic practise that seemed to have suffered - at least, in the West.
At the last apparition at Fatima, Portugal, the all-important Father of Jesus was highlighted.
P When Our Lady disappeared in the immense distance of the sky, next to the sun we saw Saint Joseph holding the Child Jesus, and Our Lady dressed in white with a blue mantle. Saint Joseph and the Child seemed to be blessing the world, making the sign of the cross.
Shortly after this vision had vanished, I saw our Lord and our Lady who reminded me of our Lady of Sorrows. Our Lord was blessing the world just the same way as Saint Joseph. P W
ritten by Sister Lucia as recorded by Fr. Robert Fox's and Fr. A.M. Martins' Documents on Fatima and the Memoirs of Sister Lucia.
Because of the miracle of the sun at Fatima, associated with Mary's apparitions, The Church perceives that the apparitions are to be associated with the Woman of Scripture, the woman clothed with the sun of Revelations 12.
It is further obvious that, always, Mary is to be associated with the Work of Christ.
Here however, we observe that St. Joseph also is intimately associated with the Woman of Scripture - of course. However, St. Joseph is to be intimately associated with the woman clothed with the sun who was confronted by the red dragon.
