Recently, Fr. James Martin SJ spoke to the bishops of Ireland at Knock, Ireland. Our Lady of Knock (top right) is an approved Marian apparition in Ireland from the 19th century. LifeSite News reported on what happened with the Irish bishops: “A trusted source in Ireland told LifeSiteNews that the meeting included discussions on how to implement the blessing of homosexual ‘couples’ and even the desire to implement homosexual ‘marriage.'”
Obviously, it’s a blasphemous travesty that such filth from a Jesuit and the Irish bishops would besmirch the Shrine of Our Lady to an island that held once purity so intensely. I suppose this purity left Ireland a long time ago, partly due to the disproportionately high-rates of priest-on-child sexual attacks the last sixty years. But the recent open attack on marriage in front of the apparition site of Our Lady of Knock is fulfilling a prophesy of Our Lady.
Sr. Lucy of Fatima said: “The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about marriage and the family.” This quote reveals the current Vatican apparatus is on the exact opposite side of Our Lady of Fatima and all of heaven with their current communist agenda.
Why does “gay marriage” destroy heterosexual sacramental marriage? Besides all the obvious reasons found in biology and theology, there is also evidence on the sociological front. For example, Sweden legalized same-sex “marriage” in 2009. But even our own National Institute of Health shows gays have a higher divorce rate than heterosexual couples. (Everyone knows most practicing homosexuals have countless sexual partners in their lifetime far beyond any published stats.) Thus, the goal of Fiducia promoting gay unions or marriage is not civil rights, but rather the eradication of Catholic sacraments maintaining any permanent force.
If you think this is an exaggeration, just remember the heretical document Amoris Laetitia: It approved the sacrilege of both the Eucharist and Marriage by allowing divorced and “remarried” heterosexual couples to receive Holy Communion without an annulment (or even repentance.) This approach is not evangelizing the “fringes of society,” but rather aiming for the destruction of the Catholic sacraments from within the Catholic Church.
Our Lady of Good Success in Ecuador also predicted this attack on the sacraments. In the 16th century, Our Lady told Mother Mariana what would happen specifically in the 20th century within the Catholic Church: “The sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church, will be thoroughly attacked and profaned. Masonry, then reigning, will implement iniquitous laws aimed at extinguishing this sacrament. They will make it easy for all to live in sin, thus multiplying the birth of illegitimate children without the Church’s blessing….”
Again, it was predicted that infiltrators would attack matrimony. Keep in mind we have no report of a single Irish bishop getting up and leaving the Shrine of Knock when James Martin allegedly did what LSN reported above, namely, an explanation “to implement homosexual ‘marriage’ within the Catholic Church.” Also keep in mind that silly Jimmy Martin is a consulter to the Vatican’s “Dicastery for Communication” and a member of “the Synod.” In other words, everyone in the Vatican approves of what Martin is doing to destroy true marriage.
The reason we don’t despair at such apostasy in the hierarchy is because right after the line on marriage, Sr. Lucy of Fatima also said: “Do not be afraid, because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue… Our Lady has already crushed his head.”
