Gratifying And Scary At The Same Time
Our Lady of Akita, Pray For Us

Every so often, I get a message in the ComBox that takes a life of its own. This is one of them.

Not long ago, I did a post concerning the possible freeing of the Traditional Latin Mass. From a priest who (for obvious reason) would like to remain anonymous;

Caveman, and Former Altar Boy:
Your comments are perfect. There is hope this time, and I expect a positive outcome from this "speculation".

I envision the modernists at my parish--liturgy (sic) committee, feminists, poorly catechized, etc--at my door armed with clubs, torches, pitchforks ready to kill the traditional monster within me.

I will be armed with the Word of God contained within the TLM Missal, and the prayers of like-minded Catholics around the world!

Guess who's going to win this battle? ... The spiritual battle wages on ... And Jesus Christ and HIS Church is the Victor!

As you can see, on the left side of this blog I've posted Our Lady of Akita, Ora Pro Nobis (Pray For Us). One of the Holy Mother's messages immediatly came to mind when I read this priest's ComBox post.

Oct 13, 1973 -

"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres [other priests]...churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

How many other good priests out there are also suffering a spiritual martyrdom? Pray for these brave men. They're fighting a type of warfare that most of us will never know.

St Michael, arm them with your sword and shield
Holy Mother, place your mantle around them
Lord Jesus, save them

IF the universal indult comes down I will be on my way to the nearest parish that has it and I'll support the priests who say it with all my heart.

Caveman, check out the posts I put up on my blog about a British General who has some tough words for Islam, I think you'd like 'em.

As much as the Catholic bloggosphere has been elated over this news, (myself included), I have begun to think that there will be a great resistance to this. I don't think we'll see immediate use of the TLM except in certain "pockets", even if the individual bishop doesn't expressedly forbid it.
