Prayer is the raising up of mind and heart to God. It is not just getting down on your knees and reciting formal prayers, but constantly living in the presence of God with your mind and your heart, and thereby doing all things for the love of Christ.
‘Catholic Action: Uses, Abuses and Excuses’ is the name of a seminal paper written for The Saint George Educational Trust and published in booklet form in the late 1990’s.
The paper struck a deep chord with Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais of the Society of Saint Pius X and led to him publishing his own article on the subject, entitled ‘Catholic Action Defined’, in the August 2003 edition of ‘The Angelus’ magazine.
We link below to the first four chapters of the booklet covering uses and abuses. Suffice it to say that earning one’s salt requires Catholics in action rather than Catholic inaction.
G.K. Chesterton once wrote that “The greatest miracle is the fact that politicians are tolerated”.
Happy Feast Day of the Kingship of Christ — Immortale Dei (Encyclical on the Christian Constitution of States), Pope Leo XIII: “First and foremost, it is the duty of all Catholics worthy of the name ……. to endeavour to bring back all civil society to the pattern and form of Christianity which We have described.”
+Viganò: Fratelli tutti professes Francis’ Masonic belief, reports GloriaTV.
A cursory reading of Fratelli tutti shows that it was written by a Mason, not by the “Vicar of Christ,” Archbishop Viganò writes on AldoMariaValli.it (October 4).
For +Viganò the encyclical is inspired by a “vague deism and philanthropism” that has “nothing Catholic about it.”
He singles out Francis’ claim that Saint Francis (+1226) avoided in his encounter with the Sultan a “dialectical war by imposing doctrines.” +Viganò calls this allegation a falsification of history because the saint tried to convert the Sultan. Francis is for +Viganò a “falsifier of reality” who “lies with an immediacy that knows no equal.”
The Archbishop notices a serious misinterpretation of the concept of “brotherhood” when Francis claims that “brotherhood” is realised by belonging to mankind. Yet true brotherhood is only possible by having God as Father through incorporation into Christ.
Fratelli tutti’s unavoidable part on the coronavirus confirms for +Viganò Francis’ enslavement to the globalist agenda.
He summarises that the encyclical constitutes Bergoglio’s “ideological manifesto,” his “Professio fidei massonicae,” his candidacy for the “presidency of the Universal Religion,” and his presentation as the “handmaid of the New World Order.”
