"The Next Synod is a Battle between Christ and the Antichrist: - On whose side will you stand?"

From Rorate Caeli, excerpt of a column by Alessandro Gnocchi:

"...They take delight in idealistic political plans of action, while what is really going on is a war between Christ and the Antichrist on a scale never seen before, where the survival of the Catholic faith is at stake. I repeat:  we are in a battle to preserve the Catholic faith, and all the battles being fought on various fronts, even those that are so important like moral truth, are only the terrain of confrontation in a war that is much deeper, involving metaphysics and religion.  The most important thing in play is faith.  But faith is preserved whole and intact or it is lost.  You cannot preserve just parts of it according to taste or expediency...."

Read the rest over there:

I have commented on a number of occasions elsewhere that the coming October Synod has the makings of a line in the sand.  Unless Peter turns from his abandonment of Christ and confirms his brethren in the faith, every Catholic will have a stark choice to make. Will they stand with Christ or against Him?  Will you run away too?

Filial Appeal asking the Pope to be Catholic.

I must admit to having been somewhat skeptical about this appeal. Catholic doctrine is no more determined by appeals than it is by any other form of popular opinion or lobby effort.  It is of the essence of the Papal office to defend and expound the true doctrine of Christ as it has been handed down to us in the deposit of faith - the faith held and handed down once by the saints, the apostles.  It is not the Papal prerogative to soothe the dead consciences of the worldly and the impenitent by changing Church discipline so that doctrine is negated.

However, I have been persuaded by arguments made on other blogs that this appeal serves a purpose beyond reaching out to the vestiges of faith and rationality which still remain in the mind of the Bishop of Rome.  As he hurtles headlong towards the abyss in his attempts to sunder the Church from the doctrine of Christ, it is important that the remnant know that they are not alone.  Now is the hour for solidarity with the Church triumphant and what remains of the Church militant.  For the hour is surely coming when all faithful Catholics will be presented with a stark choice: Christ or Kaiser.  More will have the strength to resist if they know that they are in good company.

"As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord"  (Josh 24,15)  Therefore, I have signed the appeal.  If you should stumble across this pathetically inactive blog, please consider doing so too.  The link is here:
