Our Lady of Sorrows

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, and how Our Lady of Sorrows must be weeping over the human race and especially over the follies, the foibles and the sins of priests and religious. I have only today finished a remarkable and very simple biography of Melanie Calvat the seer, along with Maximin Giraud, whom she had never met before of the apparitions of Our Lady at La Salette. It was on the 19th September 1846 that the startling vision of Our Lady took place, whose strangeness and beauty puts it in a class of its own, and seems to be in stark contrast with its terrifying message. The original conversation centred on Our Lady’s great sorrow at two things, working on Sundays, and taking the Lord’s name in vain. Both children were given secrets. Melanie’s was made public in 1858, but it provoked real antipathy from the clergy. Melanie said that this reaction paved the way for the increasing secularizing of French Society. It is truly extraordinary that in a century that gave to the France, The Appartions at the Rue de Bac, La Salette, Lourdes, and Pontmain, and saints such as the Curé d’Ars, St. St. Bernadette, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, St. Eugène de Mazenod, and so many others, including the wonderful French martyrs in Vietnam, Korea, and China, that you also have the opposing culture of rampant secularism, Free Masonry, and anti-clericalism. What a tragic country France is. Until she foreswears her dreadful revolution there will be no peace in the once Christian West. There will be no reconversion of the West until France yet again becomes “The Eldest Daughter of the Church.”
What does Our Lady see as she gazes upon the world through her diamond-like tears that make her sorrow so poignant. She certainly sees blasphemy, that blasphemy that tore at her heart when she heard the crowds on the first Good Friday baying for her Son’s blood, which added to the really terrible blasphemy of those hardened Pharisees and Sadducees who engineered Jesus’s death. She must look on horror at the once Christian West going shopping on Sunday, and making shopping their Golden Calf, and their God. The fashions must add another sword thrust into her heart. For the fashions today are truly a perverse sacrament of sexual sin.
She must look with motherly care at all the refugees who are flooding into America from Mexico, and from Syria into Western Europe, but because she is the Mother of God and the Seat of Wisdom, She will know the cynicism of politicians, bankers, and the industrial military complex that have brought about this tragic situation. These new Herods do not care for the people. These millions of poor people are simply pawns in the game of power politics and the Satanic lust for power. She sees these innocent millions of people walking the way of Cross, some of them martyrs, others terrified, cold, hungry, and nearing despair. She sees at the root of all this enormous suffering Pride, pure and simple.
As she turns to the Church she sees in high places new Caiaphases, who in collusion with the new Herods and new Pilates want a New World Order. Bedazzled by such immoral organizations as the United Nations, the Bilderberg Group and the supposed experts on population control and Climate Change, these men and women who should be devoted to the Cross of Christ turn to the World for comfort and advice. The World in the Johannine sense has nothing to offer; it is the devil’s domain. The World as God’s Creation is wonderful, even though cursed by the Fall, and for that we should rejoice and give thanks, but for its leaders in the main, we should feel pity and pray for their eternal souls.
Our Lady may soon be weeping over the graves of millions slain; offered up to the god of war, namely the wicked arms manufacturers, who are the reason for wars along with the power obsessed politicians. The main culprits in this killing of Christ in our time are the American, British, and French Governments, which does not mean that such countries of Russia, and China do not share in the blame as well, but Russia seems to have a better idea of Christian morality than most countries, and so she must try and live up to her title of Holy Russia.
Let us return to Our Lady’s words to Melanie and Maximin:
“Come, my children, fear not, I am here to PROCLAIM GREAT NEWS TO YOU.”
These soft and sweet words made me fly to her, and my heart desired to attach itself to her forever.
When I was up close to the Beautiful Lady, in front of her to her right, she began to speak and from her beautiful eyes tears also started to flow.
“If my people do not wish to submit themselves, I am forced to let go of the hand of my Son. It is so heavy and weighs me down so much I can no longer keep hold of it.
“I have suffered all of the time for the rest of you! If I do not wish my Son to abandon you, I must take it upon myself to pray for this continually. And the rest of you think little of this. In vain you will pray, in vain you will act, and you will never be able to make up for the trouble I have taken over for the rest of you.
“I gave you six days to work; I kept the seventh for myself, and no one wishes to grant it to me. This is what weighs down the arm of my Son so much.
“Those who drive carts cannot speak without putting the name of my Son in the middle.
“These are the two things which weigh down the arm of my Son so much. If the harvest is spoiled, it is only because of the rest of you. I made you see this last year with the potatoes; you took little account of this. It was quite the opposite when you found bad potatoes, you swore oaths, and you included the name of my Son. They will continue to go bad, at Christmas there will be none left.”
Let us take heed of Our Lady’s words, and pray to her under her title of Our Lady of The Seven Sorrows for a world drowning in sorrow because it has abandoned God, and nowhere has this betrayal been greater than in the West. If we do not repent the most terrible punishment will come upon us in the very, very near future.
