The other day I put a link on the sidebar and on the top menu to a page I made with the longer, original prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. I’ve started to use this prayer daily. The times call for such measures.
Marco Tosatti has something today which echoes many items that arrive in my email right now. The St. Michael Prayer figures in it.
He posted a letter which he says was written by a serious person whom he nicknames “Pezzo Grosso” (“Big Shot, “Big Cheese”).
The letter laments current and ongoing negative developments, for example, the wave of admiration of Luther by such as Bruno Forte, the statement that “transubstantiation is not dogma” by Andrea Grillo, the public humiliation of Card. Sarah, and an upcoming congress about reconciliation with Masonry.
He goes on to say…
But now I’m frightened, above all about the tight sequence of events; it’s as if we were close to a due date (that of the visions of Leo XIII? The prophecies of La Salette? Of St. Bridget? Of the Madonna of Akita? Of St. Vincent Ferrer?…). What must we brace for as the next move? Should we imagine that the next “reconciliation” will be with the serpent tempter of Genesis of whom we have to beg pardon, “justifying” his “good intentions” in bringing knowledge to Adam and Eve? Must we consequently rebuke St. Michael the Archangel for having booted him out? Or maybe we have to ask Mary Most Holy to say she’s sorry for having crushed his head? Or even ask Jesus Himself to do it, for not having let himself be tempted in the desert, and in doing so opening himself up to a multicultural and pluralistic dialogue between them?
Dear Tosatti, you won’t believe it, but I’m really starting to be afraid. I reread the exorcism prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, written by Leo XIII (recited after Mass until 1964, when it was inexplicably “cancelled”). I’m asking myself whether I have the strength to respond without the assistance of my Holy Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, nay rather, feeling her to be more and more against the Gospel and the Truth that she taught me. Cardinals and Bishops who still believe in the Truth of Christ must do something now! I fear we are in the end times, dear Tosatti. Big Shot, but Scared To Death (Pezzo grosso ma terrorizzato)
