The Bellarmine Forum there is a longish piece which makes a connection between some topics:
Our Lady’s Messages at Akita
Communion in the Hand
Said Our Lady at Akita:
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”
Full of those who accept compromises??So the problem is broader than the homosexual contagion.?The problem is the detente with the devil.?Being lax on error.?Going along to get along, it seems.
Here is something that I didn’t remember about the Akita messages:
While the criminal perpetrators have been frolicking around in clerics, some of whom lectured us on the need to be more tolerant, Our Lady gave us a clue in her Akita apparitions as to where the battle line should be drawn. During those apparitions, Sr. Sasagawa received the stigmata on her left hand. The statue of Our Lady had a matching cross-shaped stigmata in the right hand. She and Bishop Ito interpreted this as a sign against receiving communion in the hand. Japan had a vote of its bishops in 1970 permitting communion in the hand. Three years later, Our Lady would tell them it was wrong. This aspect of Akita condemning communion in the hand is frequently ignored by commenters today. Yet, Sister Sasagawa and Bishop Ito repeatedly told anyone who asked that this was a major aspect of Our Lady’s message.?
Our Lady was telling us that the compromise over Communion in the hand was too much.
The article goes on with a misstep, in stating that Bp. Morlino (aka The Extraordinary Ordinary) “ended Communion in the Hand” in his Diocese of Madison. However, Bp. Morlino did ask the priests of the diocese strongly to encourage people to receive on the tongue while kneeling. He said that First Communicants should, first, receive on the tongue. This doesn’t go so far as ending Communion in the hand in the Diocese, but it is a step in the right direction and highly to be praised.
It is also … coincidence?… that Bp. Morlino also sees clearly that homosexuality is at the root of The Present Crisis.
What about “clericalism”? Sure. I guess we can say that the environment of cover-up that the homosexual cabal within the priesthood created is a kind of clericalism, because they are clerics who created it. However, in other environments, such as public schools, it isn’t clericalism. “Clericalism” is not the problem. Everything that goes with homosexualist subculture is the problem. It is simply more evil within a clerical sphere because it is also the perpetration and protection of sins of sacrilege.
And let us not forget that demons attach themselves to people who commit certain sins and to the places where they are committed.
More on that under another post.
