Advent in the Year of our Lord 2020: Preparing for our final Judgment.

In Advent 2020, we celebrate the Word becoming flesh; we re-present the Word in the Holy Mass; we prepare in both fear and joy for the Final Return of our Lord.

Vic Biorseth, Sunday, November 29, 2020

This First Sunday of Advent, 2020, really brings the "prepare the way" Advent message to life, looking around at the self-destruction of the human family, human culture, human nations and even humanity itself. The homily this morning beautifully addressed how Advent is related to past, present and future.

The past, in the celebration of the Nativity of our Lord. The present, in the re-presentation of the Eucharist, i.e., God with us, God among us and God in us. And the future, in the winding down of creation, the end of time, the Second Coming of Jesus, and final judgment of all of us. 

It is good to reflect on the Latin rite - Latin Mass readings for today.

Lesson from the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Romans
Rom 13/11-14
Brethren: Understand, for it is now the hour for us to rise from sleep, because now our salvation is nearer than when we came to believe. the night is far advanced; the day is at hand. Let us therefore lay aside the works of darkness, and put on the the armor of light. Let us walk becomingly as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in debauchery and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 21:25-33
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations bewildered by the roaring of sea and waves; men fainting for fear and for expectations of the things that are coming on the world; for the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming upon a cloud with great power and majesty. But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand. And He spoke to them a parable. Behold the fig tree, and all the trees. When they now put forth their buds, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things, coming to pass, know that the kingdom of God is near. Amen I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all things have been accomplished. Heaven and earth will pass away, by My words will not pass away. 

As we prepare for Christmas, as best we can under all the new phony and purely political tyrannical restrictions on America and the rest of the free world, we might be well advised to look to the future promise of Advent, and get ourselves ready. The First Coming is a promise fulfilled. This Christmas will be a re-creation of that event. But let us all prepare the way for the next coming, because it just may be very soon.

The time is not given to us; we know not the hour nor the day. 

Several friends took issue with what they called my "claims" in the recently published Nullification page, but wished not to add their comments to it, or to be identified. It cannot be shown, they insist, that Covid-infected but still asymptomatic people cannot pass on the infection to others. 

Maybe that's true, but that's a long way from saying that anyone has ever proved that any asymptomatic Covid-infected person has ever passed the infection on to anyone. In fact, that has never been proved. And what I mean by never is, not ever.

So who's the real science denier here? And what are we so frightened of? Read it again, and show me what in it that does not point to truth. 

The Covid pandemic joins Global Warming and all the other Eco-Nazi fraudulent political movements of the Marxocrat Party as, to paraphrase the inimitable Rush Limbaugh, phony-baloney, plastic-banana, good-time rock-and-roll manufactured absolute nonsense. There's not a single shred of real science behind any of it. It's all Progressive-Socialist political trickery aimed at getting people frightened enough to be herded along like domestic animals, who trust in the cowboys and the truckers and the slaughterhouse workers to save them from making a (phony) fatal mistake. 

As if LibertyProperty, and Capitalism were somehow fatal mistakes. 

As if Socialism was the antidote and salvific of man from his own folly. 

Some people die from Covid-19, that's true enough. So do some people die from a single sting of a honey bee, and some people die from eating a single peanut. But we do not seek the annihilation of honey bees or the eradication of peanuts from the earth because some of us are particularly allergic or sensitive to them, nor do we quarantine whole healthy nations over them, or over any other such dangers. 

We are Americans; we are not supposed to be so easily frightened. 

We are Catholics; we are not supposed to be so easily fooled. 

Political Progressivism, born in America of Teddy Roosevelt, was the perhaps Communist, perhaps not, sense of the need for the state to use its authority to cure all social ills in sight. To seek and perhaps achieve perfection in society. An impossibility; a fact which even a Progressive may admit to, while still trying to get as close to perfection as possible. 

The problem is, our Constitution prohibits it, and limits state authority. 

No matter; the Marxocrats don't consider the Constitution they solemnly swore to uphold to be a fixed legal document that says very specific legal things, which they must abide by. They consider it to be either an "organic, living document" or an "Evolving" document, written in a bygone language for a bygone era, and in need of 'interpretation' more appropriate for 'advanced' culture today. 

And how is our culture 'advanced' today from what it originally was? 

What was immoral then is moral today; speaking against what was immoral back then is immoral today. Abortion; sodomy; sex outside of marriage; teaching such immorality to little children in school; etc. 

Here's how it was explained in Mind Your Business:

It started with the acceptance of immorality in others. Immorality slowly started being, first, legalized, then, not shunned or kept apart from, and then, an accepted and integrated part of the whole national culture, and then, imposing itself upon the citizenry by legal force, and actually acquiring unconstitutional legal rights that overrode actual existing constitutional rights. 

To the point that it became both illegal and socially unacceptable for anyone to even so much as criticize any immorality. 

Law, which was once representative of a moral people, became immoral as the people it represented became less moral and more accepting of immorality. 

It's our own fault; we allowed it to progress this way, and this far. 

As it is in the secular society, so it is inside the Church. In fact, it may be the Church, corrupted as we now know it to be, that led the way to immorality in the larger culture. Whether that is the case or not, the larger culture is not going anywhere worth going without an uncorrupted Roman Catholic Church leading the way. 

How are we to face Jesus in this Advent, this prelude to His coming? 

If the Church does not clean itself up, the larger culture is doomed. 

Here, in part, is the homily we heard today:

“Brethren, know that it is now the hour to rise from sleep because now our salvation is nearer than when we came to believe. “ How perfect this reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Romans is for us on this 1st Sunday of Advent, the first day of a new liturgical year. Holy Mother Church wants us to wake up and realize the important task we are now engaged in, namely our eternal salvation! We too like the Roman converts have wasted too much time and have offended our heavenly Father much too often. We live as if this life will go on forever. But the reality is that the night is far advanced, our days in this world are indeed limited and are swiftly passing. However, we still have time to decide where we will spend our eternity. This holy season of Advent, a word which means “a coming” or “a visitation”, is meant not only to prepare us for Christ’s coming at Christmas, an event that occurred some 2020 years ago, which we will celebrate this coming Dec 25th, but even more importantly it is to prepare us for Christ’s second coming! Today’s gospel contains Our Lord’s own description of that Second Coming. On that day we will have to face Christ coming not as a little baby but in “power and majesty”. On that day our innermost faults will be made known and our every unforgiven sin will shout out in testimony against us. Such a sobering thought should cause us to see TODAY as an opportunity to confess those sins and make up for them while we still can! This is the whole idea of Advent

— PREPARATION FOR THE COMING OF CHRIST—

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!

Advent used to be called “Little Lent” as attested by the violet vestments, lack of flowers and silence of the organ. In lieu of the chaos happening in our nation, in the Church and within ourselves let us endeavor to make a “Little Lent” this Advent!

It seems that real science, which refutes Darwinism, totally agrees. The universe is winding down, in obedience to the laws of entropy. Everything breaks down over time; everything becomes more simple, never more complex. We see the death of stars, but not the birth of stars. We see plant and animal extinctions, but no new plants or animals evolving. Every living being ever born alive is a slight mutation of the parent pair, and all mutations have less genetic material than the parent pair, never more. Less possibility for evolutionary change, not more. What that that means is that all life forms are getting more simple, never more complex. We, too, are winding down toward some natural end of us all, unless we meet our Advent first. 

The real science deniers on the scene will deny all of that, of course. They are, after all science deniers. Just as they are One God deniers. 

And, they are complexifiers, and there's nothing complicated about it. People today spend huge time, which is limited to us all, trying to find "the meaning of life", when it's right there in front of them. They search hither and yon, dig deeply into various philosophies and religions, seek out gurus and seers, and there's nothing to it. Why are you here?

To know, love and serve God in this life, and be happy with Him in the next. Very simple; nothing to it. The old Baltimore Catechism. 

You don't need a guru and you don't need to search; all you need is God

We have His Word that 144,000 of the nation of Israel will make it, and that His chosen Apostles will rule over the twelve tribes. And we have His Word that a number which no one could count from outside the nation of Israel would make it. 

And, we have His Word that a whole lot more will not make it. To those on His left hand, He will say "Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels." -Matt 25:42

The Way is narrow. Get on it while you still can. Advent is here, now. 


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Sign The Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Emulate President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

You cannot say that all gays are going to hell or even that being gay is a sin. Nor can you say that all who are not Catholic are going to hell.

Yes I can. I already have, and that proves that I can. Actually, what I have said is that all obstinate unrepentant sinners are going to hell. And that all to whom the Gospel has been preached and who remain outside the Church or in their state of sin are bound for hell. 

It's not even enough to repent and become Catholic, and to simply be "good". More is demanded. It is your responsibility to get others into heaven. Your spouse; your children; your neighbor; your boss; your coworkers; your subordinates; your neighbor; your nation. 

You are not here to just look aside and mind your own business while others sin all around you. You are called to call out sin wherever you see it, oppose it and separate from it, and keep apart from it. 

Obstinate Unrepentant Sinners will not let you mind your own business. You should not allow sinners to mind their own business either.

This is war. War runs on a two-way street. 

Regards,

Vic

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
