On Fulton Sheen, Elizabeth Scalia, and Divine Providence

The professional Novus Ordo Catholic, Elizabeth Scalia, made a sickening and calumnious tweet about Venerable Fulton Sheen yesterday, in which she backhandedly accuses Sheen of being a sex pervert:

  1.  The Divine Providence is perfect, and wondrous to behold.  Consider: if YOU were a saint in heaven, would you want to be beatified or canonized by an apostate Antipope and the likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist?  Would you want to be “beatified” or “canonized” by the Freemasonic Antichurch – especially when you personally prophesied against it?  In a related vein, I have a gut feeling that Antipope Bergoglio shipping relics of St. Peter and now relics of Our Lord’s Crib out of Rome may very well be the Divine Providence protecting these relics from some future physical catastrophe in Rome.
  2. I had a meal years ago with a person who had the misfortune of working for a short time in the same organization as Elizabeth Scalia.  I was shown emails from Scalia that proved that she is very, very emotionally disturbed.  Scalia has since then been FIRED from positions (under the charitable guise of “we will permit you to offer your resignation – NOW”) for her intolerable workplace behavior and treatment of co-workers.
  3. Despite what even most “Trads” today will tell you, sanctity and Same Sex Attraction are mutually exclusive because the psycho-spiritual pathology of SSA and all sexual perversions are derived from DIABOLICAL NARCISSISM, which is THE VOLUNTARY SELF-PURGATION OF LOVE (CHARITY) FROM THE SOUL.  Someone should make a three hour video presentation about that….  A person CANNOT be holy if they have purged themselves of love to the point that they lust after the same sex by definition.  You’ve got to be pretty damn far-gone to be that much of a pervert.  And yes, the “orientation” itself is sinful, which is why we say in the Confiteor, “…quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere:“; “that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed:”  Folks, this error that SSA is not intrinsically sinful is absolutely pernicious, because if lusting after the same sex is not sinful unless one acts upon it, then neither is lusting after children, or blood relatives, or animals, or dead bodies – so long as the monster in question “doesn’t act upon it”.  That is CLEARLY, OBVIOUSLY wrong.  Let me take it further.  By that standard, the Blessed Virgin Mary could have been “SSA”, so long as she didn’t “act on it”, because remember, the error claims that “there IS NO SIN in SSA in and of itself.”  Do you see the satanic lies that leap forth from the logical truth table built on the lying false premise that SSA “is not intrinsically sinful” and thus “does not preclude holiness??”  It’s funny, but the most strident Trad defenders of the lie that SSA is not intrinsically sinful that I have known personally ALL run with sodomites and either turn a blind eye to it or excuse it because the sex perverts in question have “good taste in liturgy”. Funny that….
  4. Finally, let us conclude with Venerable Sheen’s incontrovertible prophecy:

“[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.”

We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.

The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.

Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.

The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.

A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.

The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I AM WHO AM,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.”

Nowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first “red.” Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as “the Prince of this world,” whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect–and certainly no devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect. How will he come in this new age to win followers to his religion?

The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity and plenty not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves …

The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion–one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.

In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ …

But the twentieth century will join the counterchurch because it claims to be infallible when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world communism.
