Church v anti-Church, Gospel v anti-Gospel

"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through.
I do not think that wide circles of the American Society or wide circles of the Christian Community realize this fully.
We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.
It is a trial which the Church must take up."

Blessed Pope John Paul II, is reputed to have made the above statement when visiting the U.S.A. as Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, in 1976.

The antithesis compared to the thesis is considered the direct opposite. The anti-Gospel does not seem like the direct opposite of the Gospel and accordingly is easily accepted as the Gospel when the error/change is presented as deeper interpretation or more enlighted understanding.

The anti-church doesn't seem very different to the Church but lack of obedience to the Holy Father or adherence to traditional Church teaching is not always apparent.

How can the average person know if he or she is hearing the Gospel or the anti-Gospel?

Frankly, it is very difficult to distinquish between them except when looking at extremes.

The best solution is to hold fast to the Blessed Virgin. She above all knows her Son's Gospel.

Consecration to Mary, the Mother of God, is the best antidote to error.

Ask Mary, as the Advocate of the People of God, for protection.

I forget who said, he who acts as his own attorney has a fool representing him, or words to that effect.

Why The Warning?

Why is God giving us the gift of the Illumination of Conscience?

It is a gift won for us, her children, by the Blessed Virgin, who knows that without it humanity is finished.

Why is it necessary?

The fog of error is so dense only the Virgin can lead us back to the truth about her son.

The Blessed Virgin, as the Mediatrix of All Grace, has a unique relationship with the Holy Spirit that has been likened to a spousal relationship. Calling on that relationship, the Blessed Virgin, has won for each of us, her children, the greatest of blessings, the opportunity to see the truth about our lives in the Light of Christ.

What do natural parents wish for their children?

That they would know the truth and that the truth would set them free.

Soon, each of us will  know the truth about our personal "morality". We will know how much we have manipulated the truth to suit our needs and how far that manipulation has distanced us from Christ, who is the real Truth.

Because the Blessed Virgin, is the Mother of God, she has a unique perspective on how far each of us are from her Son.

What a great Mother we have. What a tremendous gift she has won for us.

The Blessed Virgin has won what Christ would freely give if we would encounter Him in prayer and sacrament on a frequent basis. Jesus wants us to know and repent of our sins. He has given us the means to do that and be truly converted but most of us ignore the means.

There is still time to prepare for the Warning by asking God to reveal through the Blessed Virgin's intercession, the reality of our conscience, so that we might repent now.

The Abomination of Desolation

What is the Abomination of Desolation?

Many believe it to be a statue or figure which people will worship during the time of the Antichrist.

What would you say to the abomination being a false religion that looks and smell like Catholicism but is in fact a corrupted form which is no longer true!

At La Salette the Blessed Virgin said,
"Many will turn their backs on the Faith;
the number of priests and religious who fall away from the true religion will be large.
There will even be bishops among them....
(The demons) will subvert the faith even among consecrated persons and blind them so much that these persons will accept the spirit of the fallen angels.
Many religious houses will lose the Faith completely and lead many souls to ruin.
Unusual happenings will occur everywhere, for the true Faith will have been extinquished and a false light will enlighten the world...."

Has the Abomination of Desolation occurred?

Has the true Faith been lost?

Is the Faith that we call Roman still pure?

It is no longer a sin to lend money at interest.
Is that an unusual happening?

We are no longer invited to bring the Good News to heretics, schismatics and Jews.
Is that an unusual happening?

The Real Presence is no longer found exclusively in Holy Communion.
Is that an unusual happening?

Fine silver is defined as 99.9% pure.
Sterling silver is only 92.5% pure.

How subverted must the pure Faith be before it is called the Abomination of Desolation in heaven?

Is 92.5% purity enough?
