Objective Truths? Down the Toilet!

Modernists of today in both the Church and State – “the whatever turns your crank or floats your boat” generation have, by their words and actions, thrown objective truths, or even the concept of such things, down the toilet . The evidence is everywhere. And, if anyone wants to know how this all got started, or at least received impetus, I refer the reader to at least three occurrences: the refusal of Pope John XXIII to comply with the request of Our Lady of Fatima in 1959, the “non-Council” of Vatican II placing Man before God, and the machinations of one Dr. Carl Rogers with the nuns of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the 60s. Google the subject if you wish; it’s too painful for me to recall in detail here.

So, how did all this get started? “According to the records of the Archives, the Commissary of the Holy Office, Father Pierre Paul Philippe, OP, with the agreement of Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, brought the envelope containing the third part of the “secret of Fatima” to Pope John XXIII on 17 August 1959. “After some hesitation”, His Holiness said: “We shall wait. I shall pray. I shall let you know what I decide”. (In fact, Pope John XXIII decided to return the sealed envelope to the Holy Office and not to reveal the third part of the secret.”) www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20000626_message-fatima_en.html)

So, is everything lost? By no means! We have Our Mother in Heaven and the Rosary to assist us in these perilous times if only we would appeal to Her. The Memorare prayer would be a good place to begin:

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
