A Thought On Our Blessed Mother And Those Who Love Her.



The children of Belial, the slaves of Satan, the friends of the world, - for they are all one and the same - have always persecuted and will persecute more than ever in the future those who belong to the Blessed Virgin, just as Cain of old persecuted his brother Abel, and Esau his brother Jacob. These are the types of the wicked and of the just. But the humble Mary will always triumph over Satan, the proud one, and so great will be her victory that she will crush his head, the very seat of his pride. She will unmask his serpent's cunning and expose his wicked plots. She will scatter to the winds his devilish plans and to the end of time will keep her faithful servants safe from his cruel claws.

But Mary's power over the evil spirits will especially shine forth in the latter times, when Satan will lie in wait for her heel, that is, for her humble servants and her poor children whom she will rouse to fight against him. In the eyes of the world they will be little and poor and, like the heel, lowly in the eyes of all, down-trodden and crushed as is the heel by the other parts of the body. But in compensation for this they will be rich in God's graces, which will be abundantly bestowed on them by Mary. They will be great and exalted before God in holiness. They will be superior to all creatures by their great zeal and so strongly will they be supported by divine assistance that, in union with Mary, they will crush the head of Satan with their heel, that is, their humility, and bring victory to Jesus Christ.

(Saint Louis de Montfort)

The way to deal with the problems of our civilization is to work for the latae sententiae excommunication of those who vote for leftist parties. Being a leftist ought to have a similar stigma to being homosexual: just so long as you don't act on your urges... St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa Theologica said that only laws that burden society "proportionately" are just. Leftists plunder the rich, and therefore are guilty of mortal sin if they have enough intelligence to be above dogs, which many leftists do not. Leftists ought to be threatened with excommunication the way St. Augustine condemned Alexander the Great as a grand pirate. That is what leftists are! I was kicked off of Mark Shea's blog, but you can still go there and work to tell them they ought to be excommunicated! The fate of the world depends on it!
