Every true Catholic, every true Catholic priest, every true Catholic bishop must with deep sorrow and a weeping heart regret and protest against the unheard fact, that Pope Francis, the Roman Pontiff, the successor of the apostle Peter, the Vicar of Christ on earth, uttered in the documentary film “Francesco” that premiered on October 21, 2020, as part of the Rome Film Festival, his support for civil same-sex unions. Such support of the pope means support for a structure of sin, for a lifestyle against the Sixth Commandment of the Decalogue, which was written with the fingers of God on stone tables on Sinai (see Ex. 31:18) and delivered by the hands of Angels to men (see Gal. 3:19). What God has written with His hand, even a pope cannot erase nor rewrite with his hand or with his tongue. [See LifeSiteNews for full commentary]
The pope’s statement affirms the systemic sin of same sex civil unions. There are many others: pornography, abortion, contraception, usury, greed. These systemic sins call down the wrath of God. The Old Testament gives many examples of God’s judgment coming on cultures embracing societal sin. Destroying Sodom and Gomorrah is just one example.
If Joe Biden wins the election on November 3rd by a legitimate vote of the majority of Americans, it will be a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions. National sins must be punished by national chastisement. Whether he wins or not, our society is deeply immersed, and even revels, in serious sins. We must prepare to suffer and embrace God’s will in suffering by making it an offering on the altar of atonement. The little children of Fatima willingly took on suffering by their own choice. We may have no choice in the sufferings; we will have a choice in how we respond to them.
I grieve for the foolish people I know who hate Trump so much they are willing to sow the wind by supporting Joe Biden or refuse to support Trump Because they will bring on the whirlwind and both the guilty and the innocent will be caught up in that storm. I pray that we can avoid it by falling on our knees before God like the people of Nineveh. May God find the equivalent of the ten just men who would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah from destruction.
Our Lady, Queen of America, pray for us.
