One of the most frustrating things about modernists is that they have absolutely no comprehension whatsoever about what a prophet truly is.
I blame the charismatic renewal, frankly, (in addition to Luther opening the bottomless pit of non servium). I can recall, week after week, (at Steubenville) the priests and worship leaders subtly and often overtly encouraged us children to “prophesy” (hint: that’s not how prophesy works).
This was after a 1-3 hour praise and worship session that is designed to heighten emotions, and subsequent to the “shouldaboughta Honda,” and “Ineedashotofvodka” prayer lessons.
We were kids. Many of us were in need of confession. But, we were encouraged (manipulated? Strong-armed?) into “prophesying.”
The people running things like this are usually extremely kind and loving people who are desperately trying to be the best Catholic they can be.
But they haven’t got a freaking clue on what it means to be a prophet – a person who conveys the will of Our Lord to His people.
For the love of God, folks, READ about the true prophets!
These men were so hard core that almost every single human being alive currently would definitely think they were insane.
They PURGED THEMSELVES BRUTALLY of pride and every other sin.
They fasted so intensely that angels had to come and force them to eat.
They isolated themselves.
They refused to compromise on the smallest of things.
They fought. They performed miracles. They died.
They did NOT betray the Lord Our God, engineer a decade long plan of subterfuge, political assassination, and revolution against Christ’s Church in furtherance of Vatican II, murder the message of Fatima, and then pretend to be fond of tradition to give strength to an invented Freemasonic anti papal duality.
The most painful thing I’ve had to learn in this process is that the character of Pope Benedict XVI that I knew and loved was a complete fabrication of Cardinal Wreckovation Ratzinger.
So, you tell me: prophesy, or agenda?
Don’t tell me this man is a prophet. If he’s a pope, he’s the worst pope in history and destined for hell for betraying the Church and her children. And, even if his betrayals had not disqualified him from being guided by the Holy Ghost, his public refusal to God to allow Our Lord to speak through him is something that cannot be reversed without public repentance of it, and his Freemasonic bicameralistic invention of the antipapacy came from the mind of Satan himself.
These are “choose your own adventure” Catholics:
