"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Fr. Voigt, The Father Sends the Son; the Son sends the Spirit of Truth

Fr. Voigt, The Father Sends the Son; the Son sends the Spirit of Truth
Sunday Reflection

"Non progredi, regredi est" which means not to go forward is to go backward.  The Father has established the plan that rules the world and in that plan of love He called upon His Eternal Son to enter our flesh to give testimony to the Truth.  The Son is the Way, the Truth and the Good Shepherd Who will guide His sheep to the kingdom.  Now He is with us to reveal the battle which encompasses us today.  It is a global conflict and no one is exempted from the fray.  You and I are meant to be here now and to fight for the freedom of the sons of God.

In the Father's plan there are no accidents only provident provisions to offer graces to each of us to defeat Satan, the roaring Lion who seeks our souls.  Our task is to conquer the evil one by our praise of the Holy One.  Give God glory and seek to save as many souls in this lifetime as it may be possible for us.  Everything appears to favor the sinful side of man.  Pleasure, riches, popularity are calls that few seem to resist.  Heaven is entered by the narrow gates and few there are today that find them.  This is why the Holy Spirit must be sent to us.  We are to live the life of Christ and not be captured by deceits of the evil one.  

Jesus has given us the testimony to the truth that we like Him are to love and glorify the Father and are to enter into the unitive life through the purgation of all our attachments to sins, persons, and pleasures.  The Holy Ghost will lead us to the conviction that sin is nothing more than the heart's denial that Jesus, the 2nd Person of the Blessed Trinity, is God.  For if He is God then all should hear and heed His revealed word.  The Holy Ghost establishes Justice in that our Lord is seated at the right hand of the Father.  Finally, the Holy Ghost points out that there is a judgment and that judgment no one of us can escape.  Our time is short and the writing is on the political wall. There is not one candidate that seeks to present the will of God to us.   

We are watching in our day the presentation of evil in the candidates that wish to wield the power of the United States.  Each of them ought to be convicted of sin for they deny Christ by their very lives and their words.  Each of them manipulates in order to control the people of this wonderful country. In reality both Sanders and Clinton ought to be incarcerated for life.  So what do Catholics
do in this situation--prayer and penance.  Turn to the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of our Lady.  Forget the political system of the USA for it is corrupted by the Jewish elite who determine whom they wish to win this election.  Revolt in prayer as did Hungary and challenge the sensual culture by many rosaries.  
More things are achieved through prayer than this world can comprehend and so our reflection encourages you to a perpetual novena of rosaries to expiate for the innumerable abortions, the assassinations, the lust, the greed, the egotistical mania sweeping the country.  All of this argues that the hell which was intended for the afterlife is now presenting itself to us as a judgment.
Soon the sin of denying Christ His Kingship over our nation will cause the Justice of God to come upon us in judgment.  The Judgment offers us a choice between heaven and hell.  If we turn to our Lady and follow the will of the Father then happiness will follow.  If we think that evil men and women can lead us to peace then all hell will break loose in our streets and blood will flow like a river.  

Remember when the Spirit of Truth shall come He will teach you all truth.  All will be made manifest and soon.  Our hope lies in our faith.  Our love lies in our Lady.  Our quest is to conquer the evil one and secure our souls in the bosom of the Father.  Time is short and you have but one soul.  If you save that one soul, you will be happy forever.  If you attach yourself to sin, then you have lost the greatest desire any soul could have:  to love God with your whole heart, your whole mind and your whole strength.  Love and praise God intensely in the days 
to come and do the penance for heaven's sake.

In the hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Fr. Richard Voigt
