From a reader…
A couple of thoughts on this great Feast of Our Lady (sigh) …..
My first inclination is, “Really?” On the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel? It seems so disrespectful to co-opt her Feast day in this way…….. Yet, I find a certain comfort in it; it’s as if Our Lady has intercepted this document, and is telling us, ‘Don’t worry; I’ll handle this one myself.’
Second thought: Mt. Carmel is at the tip of St. Michael’s Sword; is this action a tipping point? Perhaps; I don’t know.
Also, in the children’s vision at Fatima, didn’t they see an angel (St. Michael?) who was about to touch the tip of his sword to the world, and Our Lady stopped him? ………. Recall that Francis had his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima the day after his election.
Third thought: Your recent post that reminded us that the idol was displayed/reverenced in the Church of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Rome.
Today someone quipped to me that Traditionis custodes is translated as Pachamama’s revenge.
If anyone thinks that what we saw today was not an important development in the spiritual battle raging around us – more and more – you are bizarrely, unaccountably naïve.
We will all do well to invoke the the intercession of the Mother of God, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in this time of need. I ask her, especially as Queen of Priests, to obtain many graces for her sons in Her Son’s priesthood that they do not lose heart.
POINT OF FACT: Several priests who contacted me who do NOT say the TLM, do not know how, are now more resolved than ever to learn it and use it.
I don’t think this legislation is going to have the result they think it will.
And let us not forget to bring this to St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, Terror of Demons. This is a special year for Joseph and we should be bringing our petitions to him. I ask him, on top of continuing to help me with material support, which I now need more than ever, also to guard and protect His beloved Jesus’ priests as he himself protected the infant and growing High Priest. St. Joseph, help me and help all priests now.
