Is the Holy Mother of God assisting in undoing the knots made as a result of the mess called for by Papa Bergoglio? She loves us; she's helping to protect the Church. Of that, we can all be certain.
For every act of corruption and promotion of heresy causing a soul to be lost, the person or persons contributing to another's downfall should not be surprised when the purifying flames burn a little hotter upon their arrival in Purgatory. That is, if those responsible for causing God's children to fall actually make it to the purgatorial realm. Another fire burns even hotter and forever for those who obstinately teach a foreign gospel and lead others astray.
Is it this blogger's imagination or is the Holy Father actually smiling a lot less these days? His visit to Africa will probably bring a smile to his face. He will be met by a multitude of faithful Catholics led by faithful bishops who have declared in no uncertain terms their fidelity to Tradition. Their constancy in the Faith will, hopefully, convince the rest of the Church that the African witness heralds the path forward. May their witness also be a reminded that the current lame witness of European Catholics and the comfortable (c)atholicism of Catholics of the Americas is the path that should be left behind.
A Catholic Century
In 100 years or so, people will likely laugh at the Kasperites (Kasper, Baldisseri, Cupich, Forte, Durocher, et al) for attempting to change the Church's unchangeable doctrines. Laughing is what the faithful do at the devil. The devil hates being laughed at. He hates having his agenda exposed to the light of day.
And, in the future, perhaps there will be a few additional names on the list of Saints and the Beatified whose intercession is requested in the Mass, names of people from this era who defended marriage with zeal and who offered authentic support and encouragement to those who were/are in most need of God's mercy. That is, the mercy which calls people out of their sins to newness of life. The mercy which alerts people to pray for the grace from God which is available to enable people to enter into and embrace and live the new life in Christ.
