Mordor is Come

(Our own Sheryl Collmer, editor of the CORAC Newsletter, published this magnificent piece at the Tyler, Texas website, Truth for Souls. It is so good, I had to republish it here in its entirety-CJ)

By Sheryl Collmer

Gandalf: The board is set… the pieces are moving. 
The fate of the world will now be decided.

Like Sauron’s army spilling out of Mordor, Satan has come out in our lifetime. He has dispensed with the glamour phase of human recruitment, and has moved into the brute force phase. No longer dangling shiny objects in order to attract innocents, he is out in the open. 

See how Satan once disguised abortion as health care, as compassion for women. He seduced those of decent intent who merely lacked critical thinking skills, and sucked them in. When they didn’t fight, evil overcame them. Now, abortion advocates carry signs that say, “Abortion = Good Snack.” Satan is confident enough of his servants to drop any pretense of civility. 

In the Lord of the Rings, Sauron committed all his assets in one final play for domination of Middle Earth. The current axis of corrupt government, tech giants, the disciples of the demonic World Economic Forum and World Health Organization, and the complicit media is Mordor. 

Saruman: Together, my lord Sauron, we shall rule this Middle Earth. The old world will burn in the forest of industry. Forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machine of war with the sword, and the spear, and the iron fist of the orc.

The great question is: will we fight? Will the world of men stand up, or be boiled alive like frogs in a pot? Do we have the courage of intrepid hobbits who, with the thinnest, most tenuous hope of success, set out for Mordor to destroy the Ring? 

Theoden: How did it come to this?

The darkness has been lowering for many years now, slowly enough that it seemed normal, though it was filled with evil. Was there ever anything normal about random promiscuity and the circumvention of God’s great gift of procreation, and the extermination of any little human who slipped through the sieve? Is massive corporate farming using toxic materials normal? Is the weaponization of health care normal? Pornography? Pedophilia? The manipulation of psychically weak personalities to carry out evil agendas? 

We’re not longing for what we once called normal; we’re longing for what normal should have been. We’re longing for the Shire, for cozy homes with happy children, good food and ale, tilled earth and green growing things, music and dancing, and above all, a community that held together through generations. We are longing for a world of goodness and love, not that old world we used to call “normal.”

Consider the endgame now evident: the worldwide medical destruction caused by an engineered virus, the dangerous shot, the excess mortality rates in working age people, the organized shutdown of viewpoints that differ from the approved narrative; the hemorrhaging of US funds to foreign powers, the planned instability at our Southern border, the manufactured food shortages which are only in the beginning stages, the dangerous biolabs placed around the world by a US shadow government, the targeting of children in their innocence, and the perfidious media deliberately hiding it all.

In fact, the media is the lynchpin of the whole enterprise. The media runs cover for Mordor.

And the endgame is intensifying. Governments are rolling out a digital identity system that will control behavior and spending. New bioweapons are being revealed, to suck in the unthinking. Children are assaulted on every possible front. If evil were a game of Jenga, we would be nudging the last remaining block that holds the tower up.

It won’t be enough to flee the cities. Mordor is advancing, like a flood of poisoned waters. It will reach everywhere if we don’t stop it. 

Pippin: Maybe Treebeard’s right. We don’t belong here. It’s too big for us. What can we do? We’ve got the Shire. Maybe we should go. 
Merry: The fires of Isengard will spread. And all that was green and good in this world will be gone. There won’t be a Shire, Pippin. 

The media makes excuses for all the things that are purposefully being done to us, but even the most willfully blinded people know something is off. It’s like downshifting on a hill; you can feel the change in Satan’s energy. Anyone who hasn’t realized it yet undoubtedly will, if diesel runs low and our food supply is short, if groceries can’t be bought without digital identity, if witches take over the public square and the attacks on our churches heat up in earnest, if the government arrests a critical mass of people for holding unacceptable views. The warning signs have been posted. 

None of this is stupidity; it’s not party politics or conspiracy theory. It’s Sauron releasing the Orcs. 

The Orcs are in every major institution of the world. While we raised our families, worshipped our God, and found joy in the created world, Satan was planning, and placing his minions in influential positions literally everywhere. This is a huge, coordinated machine we’re up against. 

Evil has no love, no pleasure in simple things, none of what gives human life its sheen; it is not distracted from its one purpose. That’s why Jesus warned us that the children of darkness are more shrewd in their dealings with their kind, than the children of light are with theirs. Darkness doesn’t rest, even when we must.

So we must rise united, ready to shore each other up; we must forgive each other’s faults, and allow nothing to come between us. No one of us can fight this battle alone.

Elrond: Strangers from distant lands, friends of old, you have been summoned here to answer the threat of Mordor. Middle Earth stands upon the brink of destruction; none can escape it. You will unite, or you will fall.

Every day, more people realize that there is a plan, not a hash of unrelated disasters. Every time a complicit news outlet is compelled to reveal a fact previously hidden, every time a bought politician has to backpedal to save his skin, every time one person decides to stop complying with the madness, it’s like a light switched on in the middle of the night, sending the cockroaches scurrying. These skirmishes show that the battle can be won. Don’t listen to those who say, “It’s too big; we can’t win.”

We can win. Middle Earth wasn’t saved by the hobbits who hid in their holes. It was saved by those willing to leave, to make sure their home would survive. We must come up out of our semi-comfortable lives. Understand that Satan has committed unimaginable assets to this battle, perhaps all his assets. It is both his strongest and weakest moment. We have a chance for a decisive victory, but it will take all of us. 

Gandalf: Men are not as weak as he supposed. There is courage still, strength enough, perhaps, to challenge him. 

He will not risk the peoples of Middle Earth uniting under one banner. 

How we will fight is not as essential as determining that we will fight. We will figure out the logistics later, but we must first decisively show up to the battle. We will not hide ourselves from painful facts. We will not believe media rationalizations without investigating. We will not take refuge in junk movies and video games to escape the realization of the grave danger we are in. We will not bite back the truth for fear of repercussions. We will not turn our faces from evils that make us sick to our stomachs, as Jesus did not turn from evils so hideous that He sweat blood in contemplation of them. 

Prayer is the foundation of all we do, but prayer alone is not enough. God has placed us here, now, to fight this battle. All heaven is watching, all the faithful gone before us, all the thrones and dominions.  Can you imagine how the great saints would have loved to live in this time, deemed worthy to fight for the Good?

It is time for us to unite under one banner, the hosts of the Lord, and destroy Mordor. 

Aragorn: This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

Christians, come out!  The army of the Lord is moving.

  1. I love this so much, Sheryl! BRAVA!

    My heart was thumping as I read how everything has piled on to create the chaos and insanity of the darkness that continues to darken. Amazingly, it was actually a calming moment, a moment when I could say, “Hey! I’m not nuts. It really IS a crazy-making world.” On the heels of this thought was another calming one: And God is working through the darkness we have wrought. He’s allowing us to partner with Him and birth a civilization of Love smack dab in the midst of chaos. We’re living the Book of Genesis in this NEW Beginning.

    “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

    And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.”

    My face is set like flint for the new waves of deepening darkness, replete with turmoil to come AND my heart is open to what comes in the succeeding days of the NEW co-creating in our times, for God really is making all things new… beginning with each of us if we but totally rely on Him in unshakeable trust and… (drum roll) TNRS-ASOH-CORAC our way through it all.

Come to think of it, with my background of the military all my life (with both my father and my husband), there’s no coincidence with the Lord. Although I don’t feel very strong now, I need my military toughness that I learned.

      Wonderful, Sheryl! I need fortifying every day!! Come Holy Spirit!!

  3. They are hiding so much from us.
    The number and frequency of deaths from the Fauci Ouchie.
    The pattern of food facilities being taken out.
    The real purpose behind the war in Ukraine.
    The number of school shootings that were stopped last week.
    We literally have only our guesses to guide us.
    There isn’t a network of information out there. CORAC should help here. We are a nationwide network.
    We need an organized method of gathering intelligence and verifying it. Then we need a place to gather and organize that information so we can better react to this struggle we are in.

    1. As a leader and member of CORAC, David, I don’t want to spend time gathering intelligence data. Having it will not, as I see it, help us in our call to make a stand with God. Here, I think of the title of Charlie’s interview on Grace Force: Evil Is Powerless If the Good Are Unafraid. We know that nothing can be sustained by lies and before us now we see the pervasive corruption in culture well advancing in a process of coming down. Acknowledging the evil is one thing, but hyper-dwelling on it is not at all the purpose of CORAC. I wonder how many of us are actively and vigorously living Charlie’s wise counsel expressed over at the CORAC website, such as: “As things grow darker people often ask me what is the single most important thing they can do to prepare. I tell them to make as many real friends as they can.” In reading Sheryl’s writing in the CORAC newsletter, I wonder how many true worker bees we have who are taking up her many suggestions made, over time, since the inception of the newsletter.

      1. Yes, thank you for this which we consistently counsel. As E.D. of CORAC, i could answer your latter questions (as far as CORAC goes) with a + or – 2% accuracy, but best to think in broader terms.

        All that’s hidden will be revealed. Don’t let that stop anyone from getting up and heading out the door to actually do something. Intelligence gathering? Whether it’s 100 lies or countless lies, it’s still a pack of lies and deceit. More than ample reason to get in the fight and get your hands dirty.

        Frodo understood that all of Middle Earth was in peril, so off he went. though he didn’t know the way. But, maybe that’s part of the problem… folks try to relate to central characters in that story and either bite off more than they can chew, or end up finding it too daunting and give up.

        How about hobbit #73, that hobbit that gave a little wave and thumbs up as Frodo left the Shire. Don’t be hobbit #53, that one worrying and brooding over stuff in the tavern.

        How about beacon lighter #12 on that remote mountain, dutifully lighting it up when called upon to notify Gondor. What a lousy duty station that must have been, but an important link in the chain nonetheless.

        TNRS. Think right in front of your face. Humbly think small, and bigger outcomes follow.

        BTW, CORAC has a ton of stuff going on and friends are being made from coast-to-coast and beyond,

        Or, go back to brooding over stuff you can’t do a thing about.

  5. Can anyone capture a picture of the sign that calls abortion a snack?
    These people have been mockingly telling us openly that they do these things ( an evil equivalent of the consumed Eucharistic sacrifice). The Satanists openly said we can’t undo Roe because abortion is their sacrament. Please let’s magnify these things now.

    1. But why magnify the enemy, Leslyek? You’ve named it; others have named it. Aren’t we better off serving the Lord and His people by making reparation, actively praying for God’s Will and Ways to be advanced and then engaging unceasingly in the prayer of doing good, the very good that overcomes evil. Let evil implode on itself, overplay its hand as it ever does and, finally, exhaust itself while good rises all over the world – as so many lights shining as the Light of Christ – and overcomes the darkness.

      1. Ah, when put in terms of magnifying the enemy —ugh— no. I’ll discern further; for although my spiritual mentor long ago cautioned to ‘ not pray the problem’ ( pray the solution), I know what type of evidence might need to be added for viewing to certain people — personally, not via FB I now think— to help magnify the truth denied to them and maybe add to the solution by helping nudge them out of their shire a little bit ; for the sake of their Shire.

        1. This is surely good intent. Praying that whatever engagement ensues, it will bring a positive result. I think of former counsel which Charlie has given. (Paraphrasing) If the revealing of what you wish to convey is received with the good intent you have of sharing, then thanking God for the open door. However, if the ones you engage are resistant and/or simply want to argue to be right, it’s better to simply disengage from the topic.

  6. Thank-you, Charlie, for republishing this piece by this very gifted writer.
    Thank-you, Sheryl, for your work.
    I notice we all heard the same, but different parts. The one that spoke to me is this: “So we must rise united, ready to shore each other up; we must forgive each other’s faults, and allow nothing to come between us. No one of us can fight this battle alone.” We are called to communion. We are called to stand together. We.are.all.called.
    It has come to me that time is short for exercising my talents, because different ones may be needed when the time of battle comes. When this realization came to me, I very nearly cried…but then, I must go forward and do what I know to do NOW. And wait on the Lord to let me know what I will be needed to do then.
    Blessed be God, forever.

  7. Aint’ that the truth.

    One thing I love about this time, though, is that as I go about my business out there in the real world, no one is caring what church you go to or what sect you belong to. We know we’re all in this together. We know our fight is far larger than what church you walk into. And that is a beautiful thing.

    This was a great piece, thank you!!

  10. Excellent piece. If our lives, at least in America, were a story, we’d say it was too contrived, too obvious, no subtlety. Satan is not subtle. He is not creative and only destroys, but he is not subtle. They are obvious now. We don’t even need to name the many ways they are not obvious, because it is that obvious. I often say I may not know the answer to a particular problem, but most of the time Christ is the answer. It is now so diabolically bad in the world that it is negative proof that God exists. Where sin abounds grace abounds all the more, so imagine how much supernatural grace is all around us, if we would only perceive it and ask for it. God does not leave his children orphaned.
    We want to be effective, we want to do what we can. It is sometimes overwhelming. But we should stay calm. Panic is not our friend. Trust God, and do what little you can. If you can, buy some extra preps and put them aside. Set aside regular time for prayer. Today is Saturday, go to Confession! This puts you in a state of grace, needed, absolutely needed, in our time. Start the First Five Saturday devotion as Our Lady asked at Fatima, very powerful. Few of us can do the kind of preps and things we might like to do, but do what you can and trust God. God bless all here.

  11. What a wonderfully written comparison of The Lord of the Rings and our world! I always watch the extended version of the trilogy every summer and each time I see more and more similarities between the two worlds. It saddens me to see how far the world has degraded but I have hope for the new world that is coming.

    Whenever I get discouraged I remember in the movie The Two Towers the conversation between Frodo and Sam after being attacked by the Nazgul….

    Frodo: I can’t do this Sam.

    Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here, but we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered, full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end….because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was…..when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing….this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you….that meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going…because they were holding on to something.

    Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

    Sam: That there’s some good in the world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

    So I will try my best to keep fighting for the good in this world because I know there is a new world waiting for us on the other side! If God is for us, who can be against us!

    1. Yes, everything Michael Matt said is true – it’s the future, united with the past but not dominated by it or in unthinking servility to it, as some of the more crass caricatures would have it. A great interview with him too, so interesting about the Cathedral itself and its wonderful art. One of our Chapter gives an informal tour of it every year, and makes the same points as Michael made. Usually by the end he’s gathered quite a few who aren’t in our group but just get drawn in, so much does he know about it and so infectious is his enthusiasm and humour.

  13. The lack of sight is more a falling into the “darkness” of sin. By trusting in science and the state, they have transferred their worship over to man. This “the glamour phase of human recruitment” is now a “choice” based on human intellect and will instilled by the “dictatorship of Relavitism” which denies Revealed Truth.
    “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father”. (John 15:22).
    “This fight in which we find ourselves… [against] powers that destroy the world, are spoken of in Chapter 12 of Revelation… It is said that the dragon directs a great stream of water against the fleeing woman, to sweep her away… I think that it is easy to interpret what the river stands for: it is these currents that dominate everyone, and want to eliminate the faith of the Church, which seems to have nowhere to stand before the power of these currents that impose themselves as the only way of thinking, the only way of life. (POPE BENEDICT XVI).
    But it is through Christ that “all good things come”, thus the consequences ensue.
    “Revolution, disintegration, chaos, must be reminders that our thinking has been wrong, our dreams have been unholy. Moral truth is vindicated by the ruin that follows when it has been repudiated. The chaos of our times is the strongest negative argument that could ever be advanced for Christianity … The disintegration following an abandonment of God thus becomes a triumph of meaning, a reaffirmation of purpose … Adversity is the expression of God’s condemnation of evil, the registering of Divine Judgement … Catastrophe reveals that evil is self-defeating; we cannot turn from God without hurting ourselves.”
    (Bishop Fulton Sheen)

  14. Like in one of those battles Aragorn summoned the ghost army, to win this battle we are in a need of summoning the heavenly army with St. Michael the Archangel leading the way. I am aware calling the heavenly army ghosts is kind of insulting to them, since compared to them we ourselves are indeed ghosts considering our fleeting, transient reality. I don’t really like it when sometimes in Catholic churches instead of Holy Spirit the term Holy Ghost is used like it was a Big Casper…I like a philosophical point explaining that we are more ghostly than those who passed away – we can go through water, air because we are more concrete,solid than water or air. Ghosts/spirits can go through walls and other objects because they are more solid than walls, objects and us.

    1. Holy Ghost is just the traditional term, Pawel, an older English usage from the Germanic “Geist”, since English itself descends from Anglo-Saxon and hence it has many cognate words with German and Dutch. We always used “Holy Ghost” over here on this side of the Pond – my Sunday Missal from the 1960s, which I used up to the introduction of the Novus Ordo in 1970, has that term exclusively. It was just natural to us, and still is for me anyway.

      1. Thank you JayKay, my understanding/feeling of the term “Holy Spirit” is like it is more infinite, while “Holy Ghost” seems to be more constrained,diminishing. Did people use to start prayers by saying “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost?”. Perhaps it’s a linguistic nuance and depends on the language being used. Also, I am curious if in Latin there is such a term beside “Sanctus Spiritus”.

        1. Pawel, yes we did begin prayers that way! At least it’s true for those who grew up and were molded by the Catholic Faith until the 60’s. Sometimes I still feel it slip out to this day, which I don’t mind at all! Good explanation, JayKay! God bless us all!

        2. Pawel: yes, as Annie says, we did indeed – and many still do. Also, the Angelus began with: “… and she conceived of the Holy Ghost”.

          There isn’t really another Latin term, since Sanctus Spiritus = Holy Ghost/Spirit = Heilig Geist in German. You could use “Paraclitus” but it’s really a different word. There was no sense whatsoever back then of “Ghost” being in any way lesser than Spirit. The traditional English forms are just less “Latinate” – as can be seen in the Douay-Reims scriptures.

    2. Linda,
      When Trump came into office there was a lot of unemployment. The Obama years squelched production and jobs here in the U.S. disappeared from all the foreign catering and shipping of valuable commodities and subsidies over to other countries to produce and then sell them back to us! A double hit.
      Many people went into different lines of work as well.
      Trump reversed that and brought record growth to the U.S. but it took time to bring people back into production.
      During the Plandemic, everything got shutdown again and many small businesses went out of business and people went elsewhere (internet, work from home, etc) to get money/work. This transfer of livelihoods again left areas without workers in our now recovering economy. Here in Florida, there is a high demand for skilled labor because of the great migration from Blue states to FL. Illegal aliens used to fill in these labor gaps but now they are a bit afraid to come here because our state is more proactive with immigration laws so they aren’t filling these labor holes like before.
      There are many more reasons as Beckita explained, but this is what I am seeing here.

        2. Linda, just a suggestion: if there’s a community college around your area that trains for those skills, perhaps they have an actual job board where you can post a job opening.

    1. Thanks Maggie.
      I didn’t realize that there are 3 different “links” there, If you click on the first, you get this quote below,
      or if you click on #Trinity, you get the beautiful picture.
      “The two doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation are the foundation of Christian life and worship. By becoming man, God the Son offered us a share in the inner life of the Trinity. By grace, we are brought into the perfect communion of life and love which is God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This sharing in the life of the Trinity is meant to culminate in heaven, where we will see the three Persons face to face, united to them in unspeakable love.”

  18. “I am not fighting to preserve the kind of world we had just before this war. If I were, I would be fighting to preserve a world that produced tyrants and dictators. The new world must be a better world than that or it is not worth fighting for.”
    “I am not fighting for freedom from something but freedom FOR something: the glorious freedom to call my soul my own and then to save it in cooperation with God’s grace.”
    These thoughts and many more from Fulton Sheen’s Wartime Prayer Book.
    I am trying to avoid as much as possible the focus on reports of all the evil that is happening. It feels as though each is like a little dart of a curse meant to cause fear and despair. Charlie’s Brazen Serpent prayer: Come, Lord Jesus, purify this food and drink and all I consume in any way. To me, that includes all that I “consume” for my mind, heart and soul. It must be purified as well. All the faculties of my body and soul must be put to His service: intellect, understanding, will, memory, imagination, strength, etc.
    If I don’t prepare for a battle to save my soul, how will I be of any use to Him to save other souls?

  19. Speaking of curses:
    This was written by Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, an exorcist. It is an example of how not to succumb to the evil bragging of the satan. It includes A Prayer to Cast Out Generational Spirits of Gun Violence that he composed for use by the laity if we feel able and willing to pray it.
    It came to me that I really ought to say it every time the news carries another story about a mass shooting. I hope that the effects of this prayer are that I stop seeing these stories that the media is so willing to spread. I hope it will become a tool for serious spiritual warfare.

  22. Good morning! This picture is from today at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima. What a grave offense. Penance, penance, penance. We have to do a lot of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Sorrowful Heart of Mary.
    Reread the messages of Fatima and Akita. If we can’t grieve with those two Hearts, then it doesn’t matter all the preparation to preserve life and property. Take care of your spiritual life first and foremost.

        1. Found it. No doubt the Church is in disarray, going through a Passion Time. Many are they in this commenting section – as well as Charlie who has written about various serious issue in the Church – who have been disturbed by what has been occurring. That said, we’ve also been counseled to use discernment in researching at the sites available online. The InfoVaticana people are hiding their identities. That’s a problem because as awful as things are in the Church, there are “pious” people who are problematic in their approach to responding to the problems of the day, such as demanding that the TLM alone is THE best Mass or the many types of sedavacantists who pile on criticism when they themselves are operating outside the Church’s Teaching Magisterium. Whoever the writers of this blog are, they need the courage to come out of hiding and state who they are.

          1. They are not Sedavacanist/TLM only. Neither am I.
            They just comment on the news of the day in Rome as well as around the Catholic world. They always give you the sites where they got the information, and always say do your own research.
            I don’t consider myself misguided by reading this site. I have learned more about the sufferings of the church in Africa, China and other countries through this site than anywhere else.
            So if they want to remain anonymous they must have their reasons. I know that the writer is Spaniard and lives in the Vatican.
            So far I haven’t been misled by misinformation. Normally I see things that they have published appear in the news here a couple of days later, which confirms what they have said.
            You asked for the source and I provided it. I’m sure we will see this picture circulating in Catholic websites in other places soon.

            1. Thank you for the clarification of your perceptions, Maria. In these days when there is misinformation, disinformation, narratives and propaganda, I think it a point of integrity for a news agency/group to reveal who the authors are so that readers can further investigate them. Background checking on writers is a huge aid in discerning the value of what is written.

    33,968 days ago… The Great Theophany at Tuy, Spain
    “The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means. So numerous are the souls which the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against Me, that I come to ask for reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.”

    1. Perhaps you’re relatively new here, Maria. Both back at TNRS – Charlie’s former blog – and here at ASOH, there has been much discussion concerning the requested consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. In 2014, Charlie noted: “Critics of the Consecration of Russia say that, originally, in 1917, Our Lady said to consecrate Russia particularly by name, but that what St. John Paul did was consecrate the world, including Russia, to her Immaculate Heart. They are right. Sr. Lucia said – and St. John Paul – said that the consecration was accepted in heaven. I believe they are right… God does not change – but we do. We go running off into ditches, up blind alleys, tripping all over ourselves constantly. Never underestimate the mercy and determination of God to bring us safely home, despite our constant misadventures… Had the Church acted in the mid to late 1920s, it could have made a clean consecration of Russia. But then, because of Russia’s persecution of Christians, the Vatican began to make diplomatic agreements to ameliorate the level of that persecution. By the 1980s, when St. John Paul made the consecration, the Church was far along in diplomacy with the Orthodox Churches, hoping to eventually re-unify the two wings. The consecration should have been done as asked early on. But once that window was passed, it would not have pleased God for St. John Paul to do the consecration in a way that would violate a solemn agreement that had defended Christians – or to blow up the diplomacy that was bearing fruit among the Orthodox… God adjusts His demands, to our benefit, when we mess things up – and when we actually do things right. In these times, God is calling us to stand our post…to do our part faithfully and with fortitude, not to carefully diagnose the splinters in each others’ eyes… We waited too late for the Consecration of Russia. But God accepted what could be done honorably when we finally got serious about it. Today it looks like a soupy mess – but there have been many benefits and blessings from the 1984 Consecration.”

      Remember, too, that Our Lady had asked all the faithful to honor her requests for fulfilling the Five First Saturday devotion. We mucked that up as well. Even so, God always welcomes a repentant sinner and accepts our sincere prayers and offerings for the conversion and salvation of souls. In this Storm, reclaiming His children is God’s most ardent desire, and we press on in prayer, including the prayer of doing, to partner with God in doing good to overcome evil.

      1. “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.” (Our Lady of Fatima).
        Here is an article on Spirit Daily that chronicles the consecration attempts and the Fatima seer Sr Lucia confirming the consecration was finally accepted by Heaven, but was late.

    1. CrewDog, I highly recommend the Spiritdaily article about the Louisiana church! I have been in that church while in the city (I was born in New Orleans at the end of the war, while my father was overseas). It is amazingly beautiful, and also noteworthy for having the tomb of Blessed Father Seelos. I am blessed to have a first class relic of Blessed Seelos. When I got my mother’s house ready to sell a few years ago, I found her relics of Father Seelos! I feel a strong devotion to him, and the day of this article, I felt the Lord urge me to pray for my husband with the relic (we are praying that his cancer has not returned).
      I was sad to read in that same article that St. Alphonsus across the street, was damaged in Katrina. That’s the church where I was baptized and it’s gorgeous also! Living out West, I miss the traditional, beautiful architecture of the old churches I knew as a child. You who have that beauty should value it. God bless you all!
