From the western Catholic perspective,
it appears as if the bride
is fast approaching physical death.
Today, the Church Militant
(the human, present day component
of the Mystical Body of Christ, the bride)
is in the throes of the greatest worldwide crisis
it has ever had to content with.
Doctrinal and practical Unity is threatened on every front
and it appears as if a de facto split has already occurred.
are all under attack,
both from within and without.
This apostasy appears
in our fast-paced, litigious,
relativism of the information age.
....worse than the Great Schism of the mid 11th Century

This is far worse,
for the heresy of heresies
is a compilation of all heresies
that preceded it.
For the opposition of Truth,
"The heresy of heresies was
[is] common sense"
(George Orwell, in 1984)

There are blood martyrs, dying for Christ
every day in Africa and in the Mideast.
We have to see that it is by virtue of the blood of these martyrs
that the universal Church might be built up
The Bridegroom died and rose in 30 AD.
The Mystical Body of Christ (the Bride)
appears to be doing the same today.
Through it all Mother Mary
watches and waits
We must have our lamps
filled and burning too.
Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
