eventually discovered by the householder.
And to ignore the sin of presumption or to claim it is non-existent, is to test the patience of God. The Lord Himself, does not look very kindly on those who, sinful of soul, would presume to enter The Kingdom.
P   49  13  24  Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.
49  13  25  But when the master of the house shall be gone in, and shall shut the door, you shall begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying: Lord, open to us. And he answering, shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are.
49  13  26  Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
49  13  27  And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
P  (Luke)
And there are 'Catholics' who consider that The Church is an institution which takes centuries to reform or to accept a new direction.

These 'Catholics' consider themselves
prophets
of what The Church
will do,
sometime in the distant future,

and make this their justification for taking many bold redirections for the Faithful under their care! They presume - or even worse, pretend to presume - that their actions are for the good of The Church and for the world!
They who, because of their Catholicism are
presumably followers of the Pope and his Magisterium, yet decide that the Pope will just have to catch up with their prophetic rejuvenation of The Church!!!
(Mind you, the rejuvenation of The Church was only required because of the all-but fatal attack by the devil and his evil corporation
modernism. And here we perceive the very clients of modernism telling The Church how to repair the immeasurable damage done by their own ilk!)
Hard to believe but that is exactly what has happened and what is still happening!
Having adopted this
prophetic ingenuity many a 'Catholic' leader redefined what he considered Catholics would believe at some future date.
He has, for example, promoted and enforced
Eucharistic chapels which of course is a smart, deceptive way of taking the Tabernacle out of the church and removing The Real Presence from the Faithful!
If someone suggested this awful, AWFUL thing forty years ago, the Faithful would have physically thrown the 'prophet' out of The Church. The very suggestion would be unthinkable to Catholics of those days.
What a change since then!
We Catholics who hold the same opinion of Catholics of past decades, indeed of past centuries, even of past millenniums, suddenly became nuisances and out-of-date, unwanted Members of The Universal Church (to all intent And purposes, in many Parishes).
What an incredible distortion of reality, where real-Catholics were not wanted in Parishes of The Universal Church!
All because some one no longer accepted one or more doctrines of The Church!
It is now becoming clear however, that modernism and post-modernism, never believed any of the Doctrines of The Church.
Mary's Sufferings
Nevertheless the children of Mary, Mother of Christ, still suffer in every way throughout the world.
Yes, everyone suffers.
But the suffering of the Children of Mary bring redemption; bring Goodness; bring Truth; bring Love.
Jesus did this in His Suffering and Cross, and so does every other child of Mary, for the Children of Mary comprise The Universal Church.
Those who are not Children of Mary find themselves aligned with the powers of evil.
This suffering of Mary's Children can rescue those who have separated themselves from Truth, and so these suffering children ought to realise this.
For in realising this, their awful suffering becomes so much more bearable in the knowledge that they are drawing down the Grace of God on a great multitude of people who might thereby be saved!!
The Peace of Christ
Thus the Children of Mary must seek the very Peace of Christ in their suffering which He has offered to them. In this Peace they will persevere in the quest for souls, trusting in The Infinite Merits of Christ and in the sure knowledge that

God has everything under control.

We must recall that we are not God and that we are His Children relying absolutely on Him but knowing that we also have a part to play - a powerful part to play, because our part to play is not replaceable!
In that respect Mary's Children, each one, is irreplaceable!
Such is the dignity God has given to His Children, The Children of Mary.
