Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

'Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth 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.' ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Where will the synod lead us to?

Thanks for posting this video, Bones. It watched it from start to finish and it's well worth seeing it in its entirety if only to buck-up our spirits and renew our faith that all is in God's Hands. Good to know with such testimonies as these we need not feel alone or abandoned.

Yes, this video reminds us that a spirit of resistance is out there.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we always knew that this time of trial would come. We must pray and stay strong. Slightly unrelated, and maybe this is old news, but the following link I think shows us where our world is headed at the moment. Truly frightening.: http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/19896/. God help us all.

Correct me dudes, dudettes and more besides, if I'm out to lunch on Church truth. First of all, the 'divergence' from the Roman Catholic Faith, the Roman Catholic Rites and her disciplines happened in the 60s...not now. The 'now' bit is just spinnin' the fruits.

'The people of the Church who are responsible...' Those who have jurisdiction are our watchers. But, they only have jurisdiction if they profess/keep the Faith. And even if they do, we must still know the Faith, for our own soul's sake: 'And if the watchman see the sword coming, and sound not the trumpet: and the people look not to themselves, and the sword come, and cut off a soul from among them: he indeed is taken away in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at the hand of the watchman.' The Church's understanding of this teaching from Ezechiel, is that the watchman is the bishop, but there are negligent bishops (real bishops who profess the faith, not even heretical outlaws counterfeits) and if our own souls are taken by enemy sword through the negligence of a watchman, they are lost...but the blood will be exacted by God from the soul of the negligent watchman. Now consider this in the context of false bishops of the great apostasy procuring our trust...

"I do not think the spirit of the gospel reigns in the Church today..." In the Church, Christ reigns and His gospel is solid as a rock. In counterfeit churches, me, you and every Catholic "do not think the spirit of the gospel reigns in them".

@viterbo,

You said: "First of all, the 'divergence' from the Roman Catholic Faith, the Roman Catholic Rites and her disciplines happened in the 60s...not now."

If there was no divergence prior to the 60s, what was Pope St. Pius X, etc. all bothered about? The termites were long at work before the 60s.

Your point needs to be more sharply drawn. I intuit where your going, but intuition is on a different level than understanding.

Peace.
