Seventh Sunday after Pentecost
Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace in seasonable aid...[for] in [Her] is all grace of the way and of the truth, in [Her] is all hope of life and of virtue (Heb. 4.16; Ecclus. 24.25).
"May Thy healing work, O Lord, both mercifully free us from our perversities, and lead us to those things which are right..." (Postcommunion). Our Immaculate Mother, Mediatrix of All Graces, constituted by God to be that golden cistern holding among us the living water (cf., Jer. 2.13), indeed pleads for us before the "Lord... Most High... Great King OVER ALL" (from the "Introit" of the Mass, Ps. 46.2) that Her children be freed from "all hurtful things, and [given] all things which be profitable for us" (from the "Collect") - things which in their sum total could pertain only to the salvation and perfection of our soul (their ultimate end as regards us, for all things must redound first to the glory of the Most High Lord and King). MANY have recourse to our Mediatrix that they may be freed from what is hurtful to their bodily health, commerce, their plans and ambitions to clinch a comfortable lot in the "New World" city-'paradise' (very soon to be shaken and annihilated from the face of the earth), and the like this-worldly concerns but , now, not so much as forgetful anymore as ignorant - no thanks to the "false prophets" (from the Holy Gospel, Mt. 7.15-21) "in scarlet and purple" (Apoc. 17.4; cf., the "pseudo-Church" of infiltrated dumbies of the "Synagogue of Satan") and those they have perverted in Neo-Catholic 'seminaries', 'universities', and 'monasteries' - of the many and deep spiritual infirmities and "perversities" they may be actually immersed in by the subtle deceptions, snares, schemes and suggestions of the world, the ego and the flesh, and the devil: Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee; and THEY HAVE NOT LAID OPEN THY INIQUITY, TO EXCITE THEE TO PENANCE [BUT TO 'LUV'] (Lam. 2.14). They run the risk of being "interested devotees" and therefore of being "false devotees" (St. Louis de Montfort: "Mater Sanctae Spei"). Our Lord warns us in today's Holy Gospel: Not everyone that [ 'prays' ] shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father Who Is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
