Deputy Grand Knight “Joe Goncz” Message
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Pray for us!
Several times we are reminded to repent and pray the Holy Rosary. Our Lady reminds us this in the approved apparitions - Lourdes(1858), Fatima (1917), Akita (1973).
Our Lady spoke the following at Akita:
"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres...churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."
The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.€ť
Sounds just like what is happening now?
We are living in the Church Militant. All around there are desecrations of churches, statues and the Holy Eucharist, even within Ontario. It seems that a war is raging all around us - Islam jihad, Marxism/Communism and even inside the Church. Again, Our Lady has warned about this was to come at the Fatima message, as there was no Consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart when she asked.
In a 2016 interview*, Cardinal Sarah said
"Charity is the love of God: therefore, we are€ť charity, and we give witness of charity towards others because God loved us first. In the same way, it is also with mercy, superficially understood by many as a clean slate over their sins. But, there is no forgiveness if there is no repentance. Jesus did not say to the adulteress, â€śWell, go and continue to do what you are doing since I forgive you. No! Because she threw herself at his feet and begs forgiveness, he says: Go and sin no more. Only if we understand this can we fully enjoy the fruits that the Jubilee of Mercy, offers us.
Fellow brothers, we must examine our lives and recent actions. We must change, repent, forgive, and go to the sacrament of confession frequently. We must take the lead and show by example to others.
