Musings 2002/157

The late news on this pathetic matter is that the old sage discussed with the PP the various accusations mentioned above.
The sad disgraceful situation remains the same, he informs me. I was indirectly accused twice more, in fact, that I had 'an agenda'.
The only agenda the old sage has is for eternal life for every soul and in this case, eternal life for the children to whom he spoke.
At first glance being confronted with:
But you do have an agenda, don't you! one would be a little stunned, having no agenda whatsoever, unless loving your neighbour is an agenda!
I can only think that, like a normal human being, the PP is judging old sage by his own standards.
The sage thinks pretty much the same as I do on this.
The PP, on being told the details of the conversation the sage had with the children -
for the first time - remained adamant that sage was at fault!
I have conversed with the previous PP (the one who turned our Catholic church into a messy group of modernist 'spaces') and I have to tell you that

the tragic brick wall I struck then,
was the same I struck today.

So determines the sage.
Mistrust is The Clear Message
This confrontation will not end here, one has to think, because the show of real distrust by the PP in his letter and confirmed verbally, points to his attitude - and the tragic brick wall  points to this attitude as one of unchanging determination.
This attitude of determined mistrust of real Catholics - of sage in this case but, no doubt of  sage's friends, too -  forces the question:
If he mistrusts real Catholics, what does that make him?

ON THE WORD OF MARY,
THE WOMAN OF SCRIPTURE

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done to me according to thy word. Luke 1:38. On these words of The Woman, the power of The Holy Spirit overshadowed her and she became pregnant with Jesus Christ, Redeemer of all creation.
Such is the power of the word of Mary. And this power is clearly witnessed again in the words of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist.
Why, as soon as ever the voice of thy greeting sounded in my ears, the child in my womb leaped for joy. Luke 1:44.
We can observe here, again at the power of the word of Mary, that the prophecy of Luke 1:15 came true:
and from the time when he is yet a child in his mother's womb, he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost.
This is pretty amazing stuff. Quite astonishing, really.
But, of course, Scripture honours Mary and the power of her word yet even more.
Here the supply of wine failed; whereupon Jesus' mother said to him: 'They have no wine left'. John 2:3.
And his mother said to the servants: 'Do whatever he tells you. John 2:5.
Even though Jesus said to Mary:
My time has not come yet, Jesus still performed the miracle of turning water into wine: and that miracle marked the beginning of his time as John 2:11 confirms: So, in Cana of Galilee, Jesus began his miracles and made known the glory that was his, so that his disciples learned to believe in him.
At Mary's word at Cana, Jesus began His Mission, deciding, after all, that His time had come.
From these delightful words of Scripture we are able to get an insight into the wonderful teachings of St. Louis de Montfort, taken from
TREATISE ON TRUE DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN:-
P 19. If we examine closely the remainder of the life of Jesus Christ, we see that

he chose to begin his miracles through Mary.

It was by her word
that he sanctified Saint John the Baptist
in the womb of his mother, Saint Elizabeth;
no sooner had Mary spoken than John was sanctified. This was his first and greatest miracle of grace. At the wedding in Cana

he changed water into wine at her humble prayer,

and this was his first miracle in the order of nature.

He began
and continued
his miracles through Mary
and he will continue them through her

until the end of time. P
The great Saint continues his expert teaching on Mary thus:-
P  20. God the Holy Spirit,
who does not produce any divine person,
became fruitful through Mary
whom he espoused.
It was with her, in her and of her
that he produced his masterpiece,
God-made-man,
and that he produces every day
until the end of the world
the members of the body of this adorable Head.

For this reason
the more he finds Mary
his dear and inseparable spouse
in a soul
the more powerful and effective he becomes
in producing Jesus Christ
in that soul
and that soul
in Jesus Christ. 
P

Just how great is this Saint? By his words we can glimpse just how great a champion St. Louis de Montfort is of The Holy Trinity, by Christ's Infinite Merits, and through his beloved Mary!
SCIENCE AND RELIGION
Another great deception of many a heretic, is the idea that science and religion must be kept separate - one can not infringe on the other. By this they mean that Catholic doctrine, e.g., must never, never contradict scientific doctrine. That is to say, Catholic Doctrine, if it opposes scientific doctrine should be discarded or changed!!
What sort of faith does such a person have? None, obviously.
