Aquinas and More. Good Faith. Guaranteed.

Another memorable blog

by aquinasandmore on June 8, 2006

I chanced across this blog today, written by Mike Aquilina, who is an author of several books that we carry.

He makes a great point; the early Church Fathers were especially good at converting the young people to Catholicism.

These days, we have quite a few young people leaving the Church, and we also have what some people would think of as the best youth-oriented programs in Church history! I don't really find it surprising, but I'm sure many people would, that given how we've created programs like Life Teen and changed certain parts of the liturgy, created an alternative genre of music, and also introduced things like electric guitars and drums into the Mass in order to be more appealing to the young people, and in the end history notes that a promise of a life of servitude to the Church is more effective.

Tip to Phil Lawler.

I am really sorry, but the church should NOT be changing any part or any Mass to entice the “youth”. These young people were raised Catholic, hopefully. What we need to do is to encourage ALL PARENTS to make sure they AND their children attend Mass on a regular basis, as did our parents and grandparents.

There should be ABSOLUTELY NO OPTION as to whether or not attend MASS. It is a given that is the responsibility of all parents. These young people would have to be on their dying bed if they were to not attend Mass. The cry rooms should be eliminated completely. All children should learn from infancy that the time with our Lord is sacred and they MUST LEARN the respect that must be given, if ONLY for an hour a week.

The Church should not weaken the standards we had. There was NOTHING wrong with them for the last 1,945 years prior to Vatican II. Vatican II gave our church ABSOLUTELY NO NEW DOGMA. It only allowed our Priests to turn their backs on the Tabernacle and face the people. This brought in Deacons, women on the Alter, female alter servers. Women today need to get a grip. There is no sexism in our Church when we honor our Blessed Virgin Mary. She is the Mother of our Church and the Mother of Jesus Christ and our Blessed Virgin Mary who looks over all of us.

Women, get used to the idea that our Lord cares as much for us as He does for men. “Brethen” and “Mankind” is inclusive of all of the children of God. He would never forget the many women that he also felt was necessary for Adam when He created Eve.

I pray that our Church eliminates the many infiltrates of our Church since Vatican II who came to destroy our Church “from within”. If a Priest is preaching heresey, then he should be publicly excommunicated, and stripped of all his rights as a priest.
The priests who give Communion (the BODY AND BLOOD OUR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST) to those who are publicly know as Pro Abortion and support “Womens rights” should be excommunicated. The most discraceful and most terrible thing that occurs when an abortion occurs is THAT POOR INNOCENT, YET UNBORN, IS DENIED BAPTISM. There is no way to God except through the BIRTH, DEATH, and RESERECTION OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. These people that have abortions, perform abortions, pay for someones abortions, even drive them to the abortion clinic are GUILTY OF MURDER, a Mortal Sin that will get them only to HELL. Yes, Hell should be taught to all people. Don’t be afraid to preach it in your sermon, for failure to do this will get these Priests to HELL!!!!

This is what our ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH should focus on. Teach these young people this from the begining. Teach this instead of teaching “sex education”. The only sex education that should be taught is abstinance.

Thank you for allowing me to vent this. I feel so passionate about these things. Teach our babies and young children early so they know what is right and what is wrong. Do not give them a choice of, “well later I’ll let them make their own decisions.” As we know in todays world, these young adults are more inclined to take the shortest and easiest route, even if it is a direct route to HELL. If parents fail in this aspect of being a parent, they are just as guilty for “what you have done and what you have failed to do”, and that will get them in to HELL. There is no time to bargin with God when you die, you have chosen the path for your children and yourself . Hell is never ending pain and suffering, as well as torment, it never ends. You and your children will never be allowed to see the face of God or walk with our Blessed Virgin Mary and all the Saints that have preceeded us in death.

Think about it, all you Priests and Parents…….many souls are in your hands and if
you Priests decide to take so many souls to Hell, you will be cast in the further bowels of Hell that will be worse than any human can possibly imagine. The Priests of now,
including “the American Catholic Priests”, need to repent. It’s not too late to say “I have been leading you astray.” “I want to save your soul and those close to you.” He may be able to save his own.

The Priests that have “hidden or sent to other Parishs” that have abused our children should be publicly excommunicated. If they had knowledge of even ONE abusive Priest, excommunicate both of them. If these Bishops are known homosexuals, we need to relieve them of their duties. We don’t need them there to destroy the lives of innocent children. They are in one of the most trusted positions and it is inconcieveable that they would betray their positions. We need loving, giving, truthful, honest Priests that care about saving SOULS. The Pope needs to “CLEAN HOUSE”, starting in ROME. There are some that have been appointed to positions of making GRAVE ERRORS since Pope Benedict became Pope.

The rules should be “BLACK & WHITE”. Either this is the rule or it is not. If you choose to not keep the rule, then LEAVE. Do not prey on more children or allow OTHER KNOWS PEDIFILES WHO ARE USUALLY FOUND TO BE HOMOSEXUAL
to stay in such a trusted position.

GOD, HELP SAVE OUR BELOVED CHURCH I pray…
