Now is not the time to panic good and faithful servants

Between the latest homosexual priests scandals and cover-ups; to the pope changing the catechism some people have apparently reached their limits. 

It's understandable, but not an excuse to jump ship. 

I left a comment over on The Remnant...
Julie: I pray for this pope and I try so hard to love him...but I fear him. He seems to be purposely destructive...makes me think of the prophecy's from Emmerich about those inside the Church tearing Her down from the inside.
I wonder...will the next pope be able to "undo" what our current pope is doing?
And a wonderful woman quoted the Catechism (a part that so far, hasn't changed). 
Ann Malley replies to Julie @ CT Catholic Corner...  
Look to CCC 675: Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers (cf. Lk 18:8; Mt 24:12). The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth (cf. Lk 21:12; Jn 15: 19-20), will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of His Messiah come in the flesh (cf. 2Thess 2: 4-12; 1Thess 5: 2-3; 2Jn 7:1; 1Jn 2:18, 22).
We all knew this was coming, but we forget when these things happen. We are shook and scandalized and frustrated and angry. I happen to believe the Anne Catherine Emmerich prophecies about what is coming... the near total (the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church) destruction of the Church by Freemasons and rotten clergy in the Church. So I can't say that I am surprised by anything coming from the Church any more. It breaks my heart to see and it does make me angry, but I am not shocked by it because we have been warned. 

Anne Catherine Emmerich prophecy

“Last night I had a vision of the Pope. I saw St. Francis carrying the church, and the basilica of St. Peter borne on the shoulders of a little man who had something of the Jew in his countenance. It looked very perilous. Mary stood on the north side of the church with her mantle extended over it. The little man was almost bent double. He is, as yet, a laic. I know who he is. The twelve men whom I always see as the twelve new Apostles ought to have helped him, but they arrive too late; however, just as he was about to fall, they all ran up with myriads of angels to his assistance. It was only the pavement and the back part of the church, for all the rest had been demolished by the secret society helped by the servants of the church themselves. They bore it to another place, and it seems as if rows of palaces fell before it like fields of wheat in harvest time.

“When I saw St. Peter’s in this ruinous state and so many ecclesiastics laboring, though secretly, at its destruction, I was so overcome that I cried earnestly to Jesus for mercy. Then I saw my Heavenly Spouse (Jesus) before me under the form of a youth. He spoke to me for a long time. He told me that this translation of St. Peter’s signified that the Church would apparently fall to total ruin: but that, resting on these supports, she would be raised up again. Even if there should remain but one Catholic Christian, the Church would again triumph since its foundations were not cast in the intellect or councils of men. She had never yet been without members praying and suffering for her. He showed me all that He Himself had endured for her, what efficacy He had bestowed upon the merits and labors of the martyrs and He ended by saying that He would endure it all over again if it were possible for Him again to suffer. He showed me, also, in numberless pictures, the miserable aims of Christians and ecclesiastics throughout the whole world. The vision grew wider, more extended, until it embraced my own country; and then Jesus exhorted me to perseverance in prayer and expiatory suffering. It was an unspeakably great and sorrowful picture. I cannot describe it!”[clip]

And...“Then, I saw that everything that pertained to Protestantism was gradually gaining the upper hand, and the Catholic religion fell into complete decadence. Most priests were lured by the glittering but false knowledge of young school-teachers, and they all contributed to the work of the destruction

“In those days, Faith will fall very low, and it will be preserved in some places only, in a few cottages and in a few families which God has protected from disasters and wars.”[end quote] 

We have the Sacred Scriptures as mentioned in the catechism and many prophecies warning us about what is coming, so none of us should be shocked to be witnessing these things. Saddened yes, but not so much that we jump out of the Ark of our Salvation and into certain death. 

We were warned so that we could be prepared. 

We must hold fast to the authentic Faith, go to Mass and Confession, practice a good devout prayer life and work out our salvation as Saint Paul tells us while trying to save the souls of those around us. If we want to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant" at the end of our life, then we must be "good and faithful" until the end of our lives.

Don't jump ship in the storm- there is no salvation to be found anywhere else. 

In Christ and holding on, 

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner 



  1. I've been putting up with this nonsense in the Church since the sixties. When you have suffered these antics and shenanigans for almost sixty years, you may be worn out too. It is easy for you to say "don't jump ship." Fine. We will all stay put, and do what????? Doing nothing has gotten us to this point.

    I've had enough with the damage control team. I'm not saying that you are one of them, but each and every time the laity get fed up and are ready to actually DO something, priests and bishops and certain laity come forward to calm the crowd. I've watched it over and over throughout the decades. The last time being in 2002. If we had actually stood our ground back then, things would have been different in the Church. They need us. Without us, they will tank. Without our money, they would have to get real jobs somewhere.

    The government fears a unified people the most, which is why they do their utmost and best to divide and subdivide us continuously. If we are busy fighting each other, we have no time to fight them. The Church is no different.

    Julie, you are a good woman and a good Catholic. God bless you. Pray for me.


  2. I'm not sure you read my post as I wrote it Mary.

    I am saying stay in the Church and FIGHT for the Faith. I said hold to the authentic teachings that have been passed on over the centuries.

    I said don't jump ship and leave Christ's Church in Her time of trouble. We are called to be faithful to the authentic Faith.

    The evil men will be dealt with either by us (excommunicated, defrocked, courts, etc) or by God.

    My point was Catholic should not leave Christ's Church to join some protestant community because there are evil men in the Church- there have always been evil men in the Church.

    Jesus had Judas! The men we've got today are just more Judas' selling out Christ for money and their pleasures.

    Nothing has really changed if you think of it that way.

    God bless.


  3. Julie do you consider attendance at Mass at an SSPX chapel having jumped ship? Sincere question. Not trying to put you on the spot or start an argument.


  4. I pray for the situation with the SSPX to be sorted out ASAP.

    We desperately need them. They have clung to the Faith as it was passed down.

    That said, because their Mass is illicit, I believe it would be disobedient to attend an SSPX Mass.


This is a Catholic blog, please keep your comments respectful to my Faith even when you disagree.

Profanity will not be tolerated - it will be DELETED, so do not waste your time or mine.

Thank you and God bless...

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner
