Fr. Voigt, "THAT I MIGHT SEE!"
Blindness is not simply a physical state of being; we can also be blind to the spiritual realities that surround us day after day. Consider that Jesus is on His way to Jerusalem and He turns to you, who have proclaimed Him Son of God. He says: "The Son of Man will be betrayed, spat upon and killed as a thief. On the third day He will rise." Imagine the shock you or I might experience after we have witnessed Jesus healing lepers, opening the ears of the deaf and even raising the dead. How can God die? Why should He?
First, The Son of Man is a title which indicates that Jesus is all humanity. We all live and move and have our being in Him. He is like a divine sponge sapping up all of our sins. He will take upon Himself every sinful deed that I have done or will ever do. The effect of every sin is blindness and eventually death. In Jesus our sinfulness is crucified upon a cross. Now stay with me here. What Jesus endured for our salvation we will have to endure for the salvation of others. It is coming upon us. Society has separated its very soul (i.e. the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Mystical Body) from the body known as the state.
Second step: We have been betrayed and the Mystical Body has been mocked, scourged and soon it will undergo its crucifixion with formation of a Masonic Catholic Church, the vehicle of the New World Order religious union. Call it Ecumenism but it is a Crucifixion of all that we once held as holy and eternal. After the union of all these false faith visions, then will come the three days of darkness (the tomb experience of Jesus). We will have to retreat to our homes, cover the windows, light the blessed candles and pray for all that we are worth for the world is about to undergo a purging in fire. It will come because there is no pope worth the name nor bishop who holds the truth of Fatima. Without the collegial consecration entire nations will be wiped off the face of this earth.
Third movement: The response of the Catholic leadership is blindness; this just cannot be. Well, I guess Noah could have said the same but he believed God's word. Today, the hierarchy do not believe the word of God presented at Fatima despite the miracle of the sun. Blindness in the spirit is a horrible experience for it brings about a death to the soul. Consider all the souls that have been condemned because our leadership has changed the eternal character of the
Mystical Body and the church members formed by their blind leaders have become blind with them.
Fourth act: Now a physically blind man hears that Jesus is "passing by" (a term which refers to His human nature which is with us only for a time). The Blind man cries out: "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" He recognized the Messiah with the title "Son of David" and now despite the crowds hissing and booing his words he cries out again and again. Jesus "stands still" (an symbol of His divine nature which never changes and is everywhere). Jesus questions
the blind soul: "What would you have Me do?" A question which brings about the complete restoration of humanity. The blind man is you. He is me. He is all humanity that sinned and lost the vision of God. Our response echoes throughout the world today:
"Lord, that we might see!"
In our joy we hear His words to us: "Receive thy sight, thy faith has made thee whole." We have been restored to our original innocence and we can see. This is the power of a holy confession.
This is the grace that brings us back to our spiritual senses and allows us to condemn the "smoke of Satan" which entered the halls of St. Peter and beyond. Resist the evil one and reclaim the vision of our Lord Jesus Christ, our King. Now we can see spiritually and physically and we can follow Jesus "on the way" to the kingdom of God while passing through the throes of Crucifixion. Death
where is thy sting now? Eternal life is the happiness we have after we have suffered in union with Jesus. The annihilation of humanity burst for in a resurrection of divinity. May God save all our souls.
In the hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
