Just Blowing Off Some Much Needed Steam
They had commented in these words, "Oh, You are one of Those!"
Ok now, I thought to myself, we could do several different things? First, I assess the situation and the individual.
Ignorant?? Oh yes of course! What was my first clue?
The fact that I would have loved to have been sarcastic, (very bad habit I am trying to break)
and made a comment to stand equal with hers, would have put me on the same level (but boy would have that felt good).
I opted to stand quiet because as I have said, assessing the situation (the workplace) is not the place to make comments regarding our faith, because it is just not accepted. Ok I accept that, and only because I have to, and believe me not by choice.
But, there are ways of getting around that that the clever "politically correct" society in which we live.
They don't even know what is hitting them if we act accordingly. I mean, according to what Christ has taught us Traditionaly. Meekness and Humility are not the easiest virtues to act upon, but they sure make quite the impact, relatively unnoticeable to those bashers of Traditionalists or of those non Christians as well.
If you don't say anything, then they can't say "He said this" and "she said that", (you know the two year old approach to things). Oh dear there I go with my sarcasim again, sorry. I really have to work on that!
Sometimes by keeping silent you choose to love instead of hate, because the harsh words thrown out can cause irreconcilable damage. Yet you choose to love by becoming silent so as to respect and love the individual judging you. Many do not see this, but God certainly does. He would prefer your silence over a painful remark. Although you are pained and angered, you choose the best for that individual with your silence.
They think they are putting the "Trads" in there place by there sneed comments.
It is only that they are inadequate themselves that they have to strike out and become defensive.
It just goes to prove again that Tradition and Christ teachings and not those of "Man's Choice"
are the winners hands down.
This Catholic Faith is not about change and reform, it is about holding ground to the first beginnings and teachings of Jesus Christ. It is not about changing things in Holy Mother Church to satisfy the tastes of the Modern Liberal Church and making sure that other denominations can feel welcome.
It is about what we know is truth and accepting the teachings and living with the consequences if we choose not to follow. And Yes, there is a Hell, and oh Yes a Purgatory, and by all means a Limbo.
Forget your hand holding and Liturgical dance and the gutars and drums at Mass. All nonsense and all created by Man
Forget the biggest crime in the Catholic Faith receiving Jesus in your hands. And Extraordinary Ministers and Altar girls follow in suit.
Are we of Catholic faith here folks?, or are you happy trying to be a "wanna be" Protestant?
There I go again! I am truly a sinner folks!
Sorry, but these are the cold hard facts of what is going on in the Liberal Catholic Church and you did it to yourselves. Oh yes, I sound like I am contradicting myself by "keeping silent" (as I was stating above) and not allowing words of harshness to flow, but in truth, I am showing facts that are to help "wake up" the sleeping and open their eyes to the Love of Christ. This is not meant as a "dig" or a "jab" at anyone, just a "wake up" call to the truth. Unlike the comment from the individual I work with that said, "Oh, You are one of those."
You have guidleines, you were given commandments to follow and yet you choose your own faith and not that of Your "Tradition" which you are so quick to knock down.
It is no wonder we are in a "crisis"
God Bless The Holy Father who is trying his hardest to bring back the faith. As I like to say and I quote from Neil Armstrong, "That's one small step for Man and one great leap for mankind".
This is exactly what is happenening here and now. The walls are caving in on liberalism and the Holy Father is trying desperately to land on the moon, so to speak, and I hope he does soon.
Come on Motu Proprio!
We need that giant leap, but we will take a small step at first.
We do this with HOPE that someday the faithful will wake up and realize what has happened to them and will turn around and go back to the Shepherd who loves them.
And of other issues that trouble me:
People like respect don't they? Well of course that is silly! But do they show this to Our Lord? Of course not. When you dress inappropriately, and Oh Yes ladies you are in need of a veil or head covering. Gentlemen the jeans have to go!! Oh yeah the sneakers and "flip flops" too!
There are so many issues and so little time to share them all, but please make a start and go back to the roots of Your Faith. read some of the teachings of the saints. Stay away from the modern and liberal books out there, because the devil finds his way into those too.
Read up on the tradition of the faith and then allow the Holy Ghost to work through you.
And most importantly, pray to the Blessed Mother because She alone can bring you closer to Her Son
We are all in need of serious conversion.
