Fr. Voigt, "Who are you?"
In a clear and humble statement John reveals that he is a "voice crying out in the
wilderness: make straight the way of the Lord." His dignity is determined by his relationship to the Christ. Each soul in humility finds that he is nothing without that recognition that he is a being in Christ. Everyone created is created through Him, for Him and in Him. Apart from Him we can do nothing. With Him we can do the impossible, the unthinkable.
If our pride separates us from our Savior then we fall into the trap of the demonic and give ourselves credit for the gifts that God has shared with us. Remember man thou are dust and unto dust thou shalt return.
As voices of the Divine presence in this world we are meant to expose the greatness of our God. He has loved us so deeply that He sent His only begotten Son into our human nature to lift us from sin and death. He pays the ransom for our eternal soul. It is no accident that we have talents of love and that these talents increase according to the manner in which we use them. We cry out the praise and power of God in a worldly wilderness. This wilderness has denied its savior. The wilderness has chosen the darkness and put the author of Life and Light to death on a cross.
This wilderness of the world is coming apart at the seams everywhere. Man has usurped the position of God and is finding out that he is incapable of being God. His good intentions have robbed him of his supernatural sense. What do we expect from a world that does not rely on God. Nothing but chaos, wars, contentions and hatred flow from a Masonic experiment. What we are witnessing is the end of Satan's rule upon the earth. He has proven that all He touches He sterilizes. Not a single thing can Satan bring to birth because He is the father of death and sin. John, the Voice of the Lamb, cries out to make straight the way of the Lord.
It is a call to penance. It is a call to humility. It is a call to abandon this world. Instead we need to restore the sense of the presence of God. Cry out with your Christian voices now that our country and our world will hear us proclaim the mystery of Christ Who is our King. Begin now to dictate to your body the path of the Cross of Christ.
Accept humiliations with gratitude; fast as often as you can; give alms to the poor and you can offer your prayer for the salvation of souls who are dying in the state of mortal sin and need You to offer the sacrifice of Christ for their salvation. Let us offer these last two weeks of Advent to the Almighty through the heart of our Lady. Let us be serious concerning our penances.
In the hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
