"Abomination of desolation in the Holy Place": distaste for the true God of Catholic Tradition


Thursday in the Octave of Easter

On the fruit of "abomination of desolation... in the holy place [the Catholic sanctuary]" : distaste for the Catholic God - both Just, Who knows avenging wrath blazing unto the eternal fires of hell, and Merciful - and His Religion; hunger and thirst for the convenient things and 'alternative lifestyle' of the "New World Order" (the "Novus Ordo")...

 Mary Magdalene did not only weep at the sepulchre of the Lord finding Him "taken away" but would even go wherever He was laid to take Him. The suppression of the true Catholic Mass #TraditionalLatinMass #TridentineMass - "the continual Sacrifice... taken away, and the abomination of desolation #NewMass '#OrdinaryForm' set up" (Dan. 12.11) - was allowed by God that the hearts of His 'devout faithful' be revealed: what is their great care in their life, the loss of it to their miserable desolation, so that they would even generously go the distance in the same sacrificial way God has found and bound them to Him again. "A day will come when... in our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp [at the Sanctuary, indicating the Real Presence of Our Lord in the tabernacle] where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, Where have they taken Him" (Pope Pius XII, when he was still the Cardinal Secretary of State: see, our post "Abomination of desolation". "Wheresoever the Body shall be, there shall the eagles be also gathered together" (Mt. 24.28).

This is that hunger and thirst characteristic of an authentic Christian life - a hunger and thirst for God, for "the Living Bread" (Jn. 6.51), of a heart absolved and purified at the font and before the tribunal of the Crucified (traditional Confessional). "Brethren, if you be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above... mind the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth. For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God" (Lesson for the Easter Vigil Mass, Col. 3.1-4).

Easter Sunday

It is easy to adhere and be faithful to God when things go smoothly and His cause triumphs; but to be equally faithful in the hour of darkness, when, for a time, He permits evil to get the upper hand, when everything good and holy seems to have been swept away and irrevocably lost - this is hard, but an authentic proof of God's triumph in the hearts of His faithful who, like to their Beloved crucified for the truth, has stood by the Cross, outside their convenient walls, for "the love of the truth" (II Thess. 2.10). A blessed Easter!

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
