The suicide that the alteration of the Faith would represent
Crickey, even the Lutherans are taking note of Fatima. In a blog about today’s crisis of confidence/faith posted by Pastor Peters (http://pastoralmeanderings.blogspot.com/2019/03/that-you-may-have-confidence.html) in March 2019, it is admitted that
“that the greater enemy to the faith is not from those outside but from those inside, tinkering with the truth, turning worship away from God to self, forgetting the witness of history and tradition, believing that man is the only real deity, and embarrassed by the Scriptures.”
This insight comes after reflecting on the letter of the future Pius XII who spoke strong words against the infiltration of the Church with regard to the Fatima message.
“Suppose, dear friend, that Communism is the most visible among the organs of subversion against the Church and the Tradition of Divine Revelation. Thus, we will witness the invasion of everything that is spiritual: philosophy, science, law, teaching, the arts, the media, literature, theatre, and religion.
I am concerned about the confidences of the Virgin to the little Lucia of Fatima. This persistence of the Good Lady in face of the danger that threatens the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that the alteration of the Faith, in its liturgy, its theology, and its soul, would represent.
I hear around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments, and make her remorseful for her historical past. Well, my dear friend, I am convinced that the Church of Peter must affirm her past, or else she will dig her own grave.
I will fight this battle with the greatest energy on the inside of the Church, just as outside of it, even if the forces of evil may one day take advantage of my person, my actions, or my writings, as they try today to deform the history of the Church. All human heresies which alter the word of God are so that a greater light might appear...
We pray for that light to appear in Rome in these days of the Amazon Synod.
