Can we really even for a moment delude ourselves that Old Scratch is not going to try to sabotage closer ties between the Bishop of Rome and the SSPX?
Spiritual warfare is being waged constantly for our souls. The enemy, fallen angels, desire our downfall and division with so much malice that they will never relent until the Coming of the Lord.
Think about it, people. We are not talking about mere insurgents or terrorists or guerrilla fighters. We are talking about angels.
They will attack Christ’s Church which he gave us for our salvation. They will tear at her unity and undermine her visible head, Christ the true Head’s Vicar, the Bishop of Rome.
They will lie in wait with angelic patience, ingenuity and powers beyond human imagining to attack the Church especially through her priests … and their discord.
But we have angel guardians and the saints in heaven. We have our baptismal character and the sacrament of confirmation. We can be strong in the face of these attacks.
You can be strong for bishops and priests who are in need.
And lest there be any doubt, WDTPRSers have at least one priest who will say Mass for the good outcome of what Pope Benedict has initiated.
Tomorrow morning at 1230 UTC – 1430 CET – 0830 EDT I will say Mass inviting you all, as I did today, to pray in a special way for about 40 minutes or so after that starting time. Ask your angel guardians to be present and also to defend Bp. Bernard Fellay and anyone else in his confidence from the attacks of the Enemy.
He must be in a terribly difficult position and in need of spiritual support.
O God our Father, merciful and almighty,
whose Only-begotten Son took up our human nature
to save us from our sins and to teach us who we are,
under the protection of Holy Mary’s mantle
and the vigilant aegis of Your holy angels,
bring all your priests into closer unity with the Bishop of Rome
in the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church.
