“Only His Love Could Endure”

(TradCatKnight) January, 2015 Message
“Only His Love Could Endure”

Ephesians 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath delivered himself for us, an oblation and a sacrifice to God for an odour of sweetness.

Brothers and Sisters I write to you in the Selfless Love and peace of the Union and Marriage of Jesus Christ and of His Heart and all the blessings that flow forth from it. As we enter into this New Year let us be reminded that “the times will change” but our Faith must not. We are not like the Vatican II modernists who have an erroneous understanding of what it is “to be Catholic”.  They love the comfort of the times and fitting in with this world and we hold steadfast to the “comfort of suffering” for the true Faith. “The fear of God is the beginning of his love: and the beginning of faith is to be fast joined unto it.” Ecclesiasticus 25:16   Let us call to mind Catholic Truth which changeth not yet thru His Love changes us… the object of His Love.  Thus, let us be “new creatures” in Christ this New Year by holding steadfast to that which seems old and outdated, Tradition, which is not welcomed in Vatican II NewChurch nor in man’s New World Order. Nay, it is not welcomed wholly “as such” but rather tolerated so long as we tolerate them. And yet as Catholics, as we do not tolerate them we shall rather choose to endure further this “Vatican II Cross”. 

Moreover, to endure, is to continue to exist in the same state or condition and so we ask, “Could a man alone in his human nature endure the barbaric and horrific sufferings of the Passion and ultimately the Cross?”  Can man rise from the dead by his own power alone? “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love.” Colossians 1:13  We think we know the sufferings of Our Lord in our weak and limited minds but in reality we do not. A man could meditate upon the sufferings of Our Lord from now until his own death and still not fully comprehend this Fiery Love of His Sacred Heart that was willing to give us His All even though we give Him very little next to nothing in return. Therefore, let us remain in His Love, by appreciating this Love, by going out and demonstrating this Love. Let us, therefore, as a remnant, truly endure the ignorance and theological incompetency’s which surround us “with a smile” for without the Test how can one gain the crown? How can we verify this Love He gives us without this great gift given unto us called “Vatican II”, this heavy Cross, which is molding our own hearts and souls into the likeness and Image of the Son.

Furthermore, no mere man could willfully endure what Our Lord has. No mere man could outlast the humiliating tortures, so carefully planned by the Father, for our own Redemption’s sake. Human nature abhors suffering yet the Sacred Heart of Christ took this suffering owed to man and swallowed it whole in the Fiery Unending Abyss of His own Heart. A Sacred Heart which He wishes to share with all who are willing to suffer in Union with His Love and for His Love. He accepted, embraced, carried and taught His Cross and yet what does mere modern man teach? Run from your cross! Run from holy suffering ! Run from uncomfortability! The Charismatics want to be healed of the littlest “wound” and yet Catholics “want more of that which will only transform his soul”. And this is called “holy suffering; this is called our daily Cross which seeks to weigh down heavy on the “self” of a man so that now a man adjoined to the Sacred Heart of Christ can rise anew. I die that He may live in me but He died as Source & End that we may all live in Him. In this New Year let us return to the fundamentals of our Faith, therefore, look to the Cross. Let us be reminded each day brings with it a new test; a new test in which is given so that we might further depart from self and further learn to embrace holy suffering. Suffering, in and of itself, is a result of sin, but “holy suffering”, that is, suffering in Union with His Sacred Heart, is a result of a heart which has denounced self and is willing by Faith to embrace that which will further purify his soul for the spiritual marriage. No man can be purified without His Love, no man can advance in this Fortress of the Soul without enduring. We have the model and yet the modernists and modern man construct their own new gospel in which poverty and the Cross are put on the back burner to find “man’s new utopia”! Is this the Gospel Our Lord has left us? No, it is the modernist's impotent humanitarian gospel...

Verily, it was only His Sacred Heart which could endure all the torments of His Passion  which in return were aimed at our Redemption. Only Selfless Love Himself could endure suffering which in return we must endure to remain in His Heart. “If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father' s commandments, and do abide in his love.”  John 15:10   What a humbling thought to know that Our Lord could not find one to comfort Him in His hour of torment yet in in our daily Crosses we have Christ and His Love to lean upon! We are not alone O' Soldier of the Cross! O’ poor souls in hell which are stripped and detached from their Source which bare all pain, affliction and suffering, thou, wilst have to absorb the penalty of sin in suffering eternally! It is in the process of this breakdown of self that we ultimately are stripped of all self- love so that we can remain in Christ alone. O’ such love which keeps me up late and causes me early to rise! There is much work to be done, O’ Crusader, therefore, let us control what we can control and that is our own hearts. It is only thru the complete denial of self that I can graduate unto learning how to love my own Cross thoroughly but only the heavenly language of grace can accomplish! Wisdom sayeth, “God suffered that you yourself  would one day suffer no more!” What Love!

For all these reasons and more, only His Love could endure. It is His Sacred Heart which formed all things, it is, therefore, only His Sacred Heart which could endure any and all things. Selfless Love conquered affliction, pain, sorrow and even death, therefore, I can now say unequivocally I am content in all things! It is HE who suffers in me! Be not deceived the man who suffers in Christ has found joy. Be ye not deceived that this man does not always walk with smile for within Him is the abode of heaven and why? His heart is adjoined to His in all things and thus there are not two roads within but One; there is only His Will and His grace is sufficient to carry my heart onward. “And he said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee; for power is made perfect in infirmity. Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9  It is His Sacred Heart which carried my sin through His earthly life and therefore it is this same Divine Heart which carries me through all of my pains and afflictions in my life until I am completely absorbed in thee Fire and Light thereof.  Wherest “self and sin” is no more.... assuredly you will find the Sacred Heart of Christ and thus all the Saints of heaven rejoice!

In addition, even though God does not need me it was He who first chose me and us…How humbling; how inconsiderate and ungrateful we are to this Sacred Heart of our King and Redeemer! He needs not me but everyday He still loves me and calls me forth unto a greater love. How often we forget the manifold benefits of God yet when does God cease to think about us? What unfair marriage I profess that I should not dare to mention it. Yea, I can truly say, that in all of the splendorous Crosses He has assigned unto me, I have learned much and grown much in the Ways of Selfless Love. Let us, therefore, take at least one hour of our day daily to reflect upon all that He is and all that we are not and humble ourselves that our hearts might adjoin His at Will. This is perfect contentment and true happiness, not, in the happiness which modern man so erroneously claims to have in things, but rather in the true happiness of two hearts which have become and art One. Wisdom sayeth, “Suffer until you no longer know you are suffering and it is here where true joy will be found”. It is His Sacred Heart which adjoins God to man and man unto His God: it is here where I swim happily without regard to what I suffer. Thus, another proof that the new doctrine of the Vatican II cult of man is void of the protection of His Sacred Heart, that is, the constant self- exaltation and references back to all things back unto man! Harken heareth an Eagle speak! O’ modernist and modern man how crast and indifferent thou art His Wrath is coming!

Undoubtedly, only His Sacred Heart could endure the agony of knowing, that in all His sufferings, the many, would still reject His Selfless Love and end separated from His Heart in the eternal pits of the damned! Few climb unto mount Calvary and only fewer choose to remain there that they might suffer out the Cross assigned unto them. Mayst the good God forgive me from the crosses I have cowardly run from and mayst He be ever merciful to grant me an even heavier one! “Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting.” Jude 1:21 He gave me His full attention upon the Cross and how many of us have “wandering mind’s” in His Presence at Mass? How many keep their minds fixed upon the “daily doings of the day” wilst kneeling before His broken and butchered Heart as if anything else truly matters? Yea, we may fall due to sin at His Feet but it is His Sacred Heart wherest forgiveness is found. He chose to bleed out as a Bloody Lamb and yet when I burn or scrape my finger I seek to flee nature for I cannot bare to endure this pain for the Love of Christ. How inconsiderate and truly far from His Sacred Heart I ought exclaim and proclaim to the world!

Similarly, only His Love could endure being mocked by His own enemies and yet when my neighbor speaks ill of me I set out in Holy Inquisition to avenge. Yea, I am quick to attack and reluctant to remain in Love’s silence for only HIS Love could endure such attacks. Only His Love would endure the constant comings and goings, the constant askings of His Divine favors and yet when I am asked to do a favor in human nature I “cringe and seek to flee”. O’ what haughty self is still alive! Nay, Love hast the Highest Seat in the Fortress, therefore, there is no suffering, pain or affliction which can overpower us, if we choose, to remain in His Selfless Love. “Many waters cannot quench charity, neither can the floods drown it: if a man should give all the substance of his house for love, he shall despise it as nothing.” Canticles 8:7  Therefore, where can the souls in hell escape to, being removed from the One, who satisfies this quench of the heart? Though His Sacred Heart, our Fortress, we are found, we are safe, we have unity, we are clothed in His love which endure all things. Yea, we endure the temporary gain for the sight of His Sacred Heart our eternal gain! Wherein His Sacred Heart fully calculated and willfully accepted all of my “self’s doings” and how often during the day I fail to reflect upon what His Heart has already calculated out in advance. Because of Christ and His endurance it is now not suffering itself which is our hell; it is simply being void of Christ Himself which now is our true and only suffering. He endured because HE IS SELFLESS LOVE and without His grace we are unable to attain what all our hearts were truly made for….which is His Sacred Heart.

 Imitation of the Sacred Heart Part 11, Model of the Cross

Indeed, Selfless Love Himself endured sin that we might break free of self and remain in His Heart. And if we live by the tyranny of self on the surface level of nature alone how will one endure holy suffering? Love glides upon the waters of suffering and yet I drown when I reject His Love. He loved us all without reserve and yet we, ourselves, choose whom we are to love? What madness! May God have mercy upon us all and grant us the grace to remain in silence and solitude long enough that we might see our own foolish ways. “…he will be silent in his love, he will be joyful over thee in praise.” Sophonias 3:17

Lastly, God grants crosses with the understanding that "the many" in their human nature would refuse them yet as gift yet He still graciously gives them. O’ what Selfless Love! God had compassion upon sinners without reserve to the contrite and yet we refuse His compassion to others, which is meant to work through us, due to the self which impedes His Love! Mayst we all adjoin our hearts and fasten them wholly unto His Sacred Heart and pay close attention to even the slightest deviations from those perfect acts or movements of the heart that we ought be undertaking daily. Let us see daily, that only His Love could endure and exalt suffering, into a most holy and noble cause, for the sake of our own salvation and for others. “Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?” Romans 8: 35 Yea, there is an Infinite gap between God and man, therefore, only an Infinite Heart could bridge them. Do not let your New Year’s Resolution(s) fall trap to mental mind-games, rather,  let your resolutions be based upon your love for Jesus Christ and do those things necessary which will further you in the Ways of Selfless Love. Stay close to the Sacraments, pray the Rosary, spend time in study and silence daily.  It is His Selfless Love which as a Great Eagle feeds us!  May thee Immaculate Heart of Our Lady guide, protect and guard your heart everyday in this exile, Ave Maria – Amen.

“Only His Love Could Endure”

Only His Love Could Endure
And so I was eventually drawn in as a fish
From out of the dark seas of sin and self
By His Sacred Heart’s loving lure…
For so long I swam obscured in those murky waters
But now in thy Endless Seas  I see all things clearly
Having passed thru Thy Heart’s door
Washed clean now by the Great Fisherman aboard Thy Ship
For your Heart is so tender and pure…
No more, no more to go back to the ways of old
For what I lack and what I am uncertain in
Thou art wholly and are perfectly sure….
Yea, what I could not acquire alone by my own strength
Your own Divine Heart was willing to die for
Ye endured that my heart might be cured
Ye died that I may forever be alive
So for all these reasons and much more 

Only Thy Selfless Love could endure...
For our hearts will not rest until they rest in Thee
And who shall aid and guide our hearts movements
Until we come upon this Heavenly Shore?
And who is this that directs us within… in this Fortress of Faith?
Who is this but none other than the Handmaid of the Lord!
Which shall be thy hearts guided tour
Who helps us break from these heavy chains of self
So that we may freely abide in the Divine Law of Her Son’s Heart as rule
It is none other than our Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of this Castle of Faith
Whom is mystically woven as One with the Son at Heart
Who too, has an Immaculate heart, which, no matter the season of the soul
 As an Eagle Is willing to patiently endure….

What is the endurance of the Sacred Heart of Christ? It is to understand that when one suffers in Christ we all suffer in Christ, for, of this Heart, in grace, we all share of…Soldier on!

TradCatKnight thanks you for all the support!...
Have a Blessed New Year, 2015!
