As it was not possible to complete a brief article linking the barbarous merchants of evil in the world with Jorge Mario Bergoglio's recent address to the conciliar curia, an institution he despises and is seeking to "restructure" in such a way as to devolve as many of its functions as possible to the "episcopal" revolutionaries at the archdiocesan and diocesan levels, I am offering a republished article on the coming Feast of the Nativity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The original article will appear on Friday, December 26, 2014, the Feast of Saint Stephen the Protomartyr within the Octave of Christmas.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is nigh today. He comes to us in Midnight in piercing cold in Bethlehem. Have we prepared to "make haste," that is, to flee from the world and its false attractions and promises and "saviours" to welcome Him in our hearts and souls by means of Holy Communion? Have we asked His Most Blessed Mother, Who brought Him forth miraculously in the cave when there was no room for Him in the inn, to help us to make room for Him in the "inns" of our hearts and souls. Have we asked the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, Good Saint Joseph, to protect and to guide us as we seek out His Divine foster-Son as He is born for us on Altars of Sacrifice in the Catholic catacombs? Are we prepared to make this day, Christmas Eve, the Vigil of Christmas, one final day of penance as we abstain from the eating of meat and as we have but one full meal? Are we prepared to celebrate this Christmas with joy and with thanksgiving as the Word Who was made Flesh in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of God the Holy Ghost beckons us to adore Him in His Real Presence day in and day out?
Make haste, the Lord is night. Midnight is coming. Are we ready? Make haste. Prepare well. Our Saviour is to be born for us!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
