Nabi Sayeth: We have learned so many things thus far about the sickening, narcissistic and perverted behavior of members of the Church’s hierarchy, especially from the stories about McCarrick, Bransfield, Wuerl and many other disgraced “shepherds”.....climbers all.
|Message to the climbers: Lightning (i.e., the wrath of God) hits the highest objects.
It's the humble serving God's people in the low places who reap the harvest!
Mark 10:45: “The Son of Man came to serve and not be served; To give His life as a ransoms for many.”
Matthew 18:1-4: 1.At that time the disciples* approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 He called a child over, placed it in their midst,
3 and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Nabi Asketh: What would cause these theologically “learn-ed” men to bow, stoop, gravel and prostitute themselves just to be able to one day wear a magenta-colored, beanie-looking skull cap, and be called, “Your Excellency” or “Your Eminence”?
- Narcissism: A morbid sense of self-love that people who are healthy cannot comprehend. And in the cases of the aforementioned clergy, they are sociopaths: They are so incredibly self-consumed that they lack a conscience, the ability to empathize and have compassion for others. How else could they live like kings while stationed in areas where poverty exists or seek pleasure and sexual gratification from innocent boys, teens and young adult males.
- The second reason can be found in a Christmas classic, Charlie Brown Christmas, and illustrated by none other than the security blanket wielding little boy named Linus. At the high point of the story, with the “gang” consumed by the “commercialization” of Christmas, Linus, while clutching his security blanket recites from memory the story of the message of the Angels to the shepherds about the birth of the Baby. And as he speaks the words, “Fear Not”, Linus suddenly drops his security blanket! At that moment Linus’ fear leaves him because he has come to believe.
The climber has a deep-seated fear. Of what? Of not being loved. Of not being appreciated for their self-perceived brilliance. Of being unaccepted by that hard, cold world out there. Because of these delusional fears they compensate by doing whatever it takes to make make themselves “great” in the eyes of others. They will do whatever they think is necessary to push their way to the top because they naively believe that security exists at “the top”. Tragically, they lose any faith they may have had in God. They don’t see a need for God when THEY can control their own destiny. The sexual exploitation of children, teens and young adult males deepens their delusional sense of being in control, and because they are sociopaths, the destruction they force upon the lives of the young matters not to them.
Nabi Sayeth: The irony/tragedy of it all is that these self-loving, self-serving men are rewarded by the upper brass with leadership positions in the very Church that the Master, Who came to serve, founded at the great price of His Body and Blood.
During this Advent season, may you pray as you never have before, that the bad shepherds will wake up and exit the positions of trust in which they have forced themselves. May the Lord replace them with humble, selfless and faith-filled shepherds who put the Lord and His people first.
