Feast of St. Monica
Mother of St. Augustine
Holy Mother Church presents to us today the example of St. Monica whose great love for her son (St. Augustine) did not seek for nor content in him temporal happiness while Augustine then was wallowing in carnal pleasures and breathing in the heresy of Manicheanism, In fact, the heart of this great Christian mother moved her to shed sorrowful tears over her son going the way of perdition and to implore the mercy of God Who teaches that those who are in the hands of the devil are freed except by prayers and fastings (cf., Mt. 17.20).
The Synagogue-Freemasonry-Communist attack on Catholic women – materialist-feminism – was calculated to inflict the wreckage of Catholic children by the corruption of future ‘Catholic’ mothers who, instead of applying themselves to godliness with contentment (1 Tim. 6.6) in subjection to their real Catholic man (cf., Eph. 5.20) seek to flaunt themselves in grotesque immodesty fitting only for harlots and with proud rebellion under the banner of Freemasonic ‘equality’. With the Catholic Religion unalloyed gone from their hearts so is the same pure Catholic Religion authored by Him Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (Jn. 14.6) overthrown instead of being passed on and inculcated to their offspring for, teaches St. James, Religion clean and undefiled: to keep [also] one’s self unspotted from this world (1.27). Needless to say then that devotional exercises – which almost always are for material and psycho-emotional good – are not equivalent to the Catholic Religion itself: unalloyed Catholic Religion- that is, truth not mixed even by the minutest error as heresies are (of the ‘Bible-only’ sectarians and of the ‘liberal’ Modernist ‘free-thinking’ Vatican-II ‘Catholics’ – the so-called Neo-Catholics or Novus Ordo ‘Catholics’ whose hopes, dreams, delights, desires, principles and maxims are the promises and propagandist slogans of the Novus Ordo or the Freemasonic ‘New World [Dis]Order’ paradise) – is the basis and ground of authentic Catholic devotion: prompt and most generous submission to their Beloved Just God Who espouses to Himself souls but in Faith (cf., Osee 2.20), which Faith of course is the equivalent of the divine truth requiring the submission of our mind “whole and entire” (Athanasian Creed); not the pseudo-faith of Vatican II now unambiguously formulated and pronounced by the Antipope at the Vatican: the bastard Protestantized ‘faith’ taken as an “encounter” verified to be ‘divine’ rather by the Lutheran criterion of good feelings (cf., our post "Catholic Shepherd - II: Our Lady vs. the Antipope Bergoglio"). Therefore, the Most Blessed Mother of God, who could have barely found Catholic mothers after Her own heart – even way before the Freemasonic Roman ‘Enlightenment’ called Vatican II could infect and pester the Church’s institutions – seems to give a tragic reply, that “MANY souls go to hell.”"Thou hast mercifully received her pious tears for the conversion of Augustine her son: grant to us by her intercession [for our youth] to deplore their sins and to find the indulgence of Your grace [while there is still time and they are not yet way gone off]. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord..." (from the Collect of the Mass).
