The Annunciation of the Lord, then and now, and Reason for Hope.

In the end, my immaculate heart will triumph.

In the year of the Annunciation, 1 AD, the Governments of the World were More Corrupt than they are in this Anniversary of the Annunciation in the year 2021 AD.

Vic Biorseth, Thursday, March 25, 2021

It is the feast of the Annunciation, when Mary, the New Eve, who, as it has been solemnly declared, was conceived without the stain of the Original Sin of the First Eve, was addressed by Gabriel, an Angel of God. It is the beginning of the New Testament, just as it was prophesied in the Old Testament. 

Latin Mass Readings for the Annunciation:

A Lesson from the book of Isaias

Isa. 7:10-15

In those days, the Lord spoke to Achaz: Ask for a sign from the Lord, your God; let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky! But Achaz answered, I will not ask! I will not tempt the Lord! Then he said, Listen, O house of David! Is it not enough for you to weary men, must you also weary my God? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and shall name Him Emmanuel. He shall be living on curds and honey by the time He learns to reject the bad and choose the good.

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke

Luke 1:26-38

At that time, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And when the angel had come to her, he said, Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women. When she had heard him she was troubled at his word, and kept pondering what manner of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace with God. Behold, you shall conceive in your womb and shall bring forth a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of David His father, and He shall be king over the house of Jacob forever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end. But Mary said to the angel, How shall this happen, since I do not know man? And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon you, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow you; and therefore the Holy One to be born shall be called the Son of God. And behold, Elizabeth your kinswoman also has conceived a son in her old age, and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month; for nothing shall be impossible with God. But Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word.

Scripture Canon

After the Zealot rebellion and subsequent Roman slaughter of the Jews and burning of the second Temple, the surviving Jews in Jamnia, in an act of hatred for the Christians who stood neutral and did not join with them in the rebellion, expunged the newest books and those written in Greek from the canon of Old Testament Scripture, and forbade the reading of Isaias in Synagogues from that day forward. 

We can easily see why; Isaias prophesied Jesus Christ. 

It would be the anti-Christian canon of Jamnia, not the original Jewish canon referred to by Jesus and the Twelve, that would be adopted by Luther and the 'Reformers' for their 'New' Old Testament, leaving out the things Luther preached against, especially prayer for the dead. 

St. Jerome finished the first one-book Bible, the Latin Vulgate, combining the Old Testament and the New testament, around 405 AD. Luther's 'bible' was finished in 1534, and his old testament was seven books light. (See the Protestant Canon invented by Luther.)

Mary's question, "How shall this happen, since I do not know man?" was the expected question of a professed virgin. And Mary's Fiat was the purely faith-based necessary free will choice that brought the Incarnation of God into worldly reality, and that opened the path of redemption to men of good will, if they would freely choose to take it. 

Thus Mary was, all at once, the Daughter of the Father, the Spouse of the Spirit and the Mother of the Son. No one else on earth or in history, no mere mortal ever held such a close and intimate relationship with God. 

The Homily was soul-stirring on many levels, but the theme that seemed most important addressed the corrupt political conditions of that day, which appear to have been even worse than the corrupt political conditions we see all around us today. 

And that means there is still hope. 

Hope is the necessary virtue that can and must overcome the sin of despair. 

At the time of the Annunciation, the government of Israel, like the government of Rome, which is to say the government of the world, was corrupt. Herod, Rome's puppet secular ruler of Israel was corrupt. The Sanhedrin was corrupt. The Pharisees were corrupt. The "Church" of their day was corrupt. The Priesthood was corrupt. There was actual warfare between various factions of the Jews themselves at the time. 

The Jewish leaders of the day were pedantic and dictatorial in their rules of diet, washings, purifications and observances for others, but all their pedantry regarding rules and observances were dissociated from God, the very reason for their rules and laws and observances. Thus, they were pious by appearance, and for political appearances sake, but not pious in fact. Their minds (and souls) were obsessed with and fixated upon this world

And worldly power, recognition and authority.

The dangers of those unsettled, disordered, troubled times permeated the air everyone breathed, affecting everyone, including even the Twelve.

How similar is all that to what we all are facing today, in Catholic, American and World government corruption?

Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, the day of Jesus' 'triumphant' entry into Jerusalem. And most, including even the Twelve, still did not necessarily understand the nature of the 'triumph'. Most thought that it might be an upsetting of the current rulers and the establishment of Jesus on a ruling throne. 

But it was to be a triumph of humility over pride. The last thing expected.

Jesus had told them straight up that He would suffer, be put to death, and would rise again on the third day, but either they didn't hear, didn't understand, didn't remember or didn't take His words seriously. When the hour came, they all fell away.

What came out of all of that upheaval, bloodshed, destruction and turmoil was a new Church: Christianity, and, eventually, after much persecution of Christianity, a new Civil Order: A Christianized Western Civilization

Our civilization, until Marx, was Greco-Roman civilization gone Christian.

Where is there any hope today for the Church, America, the world? 

Jesus Himself told us that the very gates of hell would not prevail against His Church in Matthew 16:18, and note well that a Gate is a defensive, not an offensive, weapon. 

So long as heroes such as Abp. Vigano and Card. Burke and like men are with us, the Church stands, despite internal corruption and warfare. The Church, and the entire unchanged Depositum Fidei, will survive until the end of times.

But what about civilization itself, let alone Constitutional America, let alone the Natural Law Civil Rights of Equlity, Life, Liberty and Property?

My hope in the resurrection of Constitutional America rests on two personal presumptions.

  1. Rush Limbaugh's often repeated observation that the Leftists and the Marxocrats always, when they look like they are most victorious and ascending in power, over-step and blow themselves up, like Wiley Coyote in the Roadrunner cartoons. They always wind up being the ones with their own lit bomb in their pants, falling off the cliff onto another bomb, with another bomb falling on top of them. They can't help it. They are stupid. Their own history proves it. They just keep doing it.
  2. Donald Trump is still out there, and his followers are more committed and dedicated to him, and more numerous, in all walks of life, than ever before. The more the Left attacks them, all the more are they dedicated to Trump, and to making America great again. They saw it done; they experienced it; they know it can be done; and they know that there is no one else in politics today who could or would do it, but many who oppose it. And they are all identifying themselves. 

Read again about the Annunciation. 

It was the dawn of a new era.

Mary, Our Lady Of Hope, never doubted. She shows us the Way.

Take the simple one-line prayer on the Miraculous Medal to heart. Add it after your Morning offering each day. Add it after each Rosary. Add it after your examination of conscience and Act Of Contrition each night. Pray it after Grace Before Meals. 

O Mary Conceived Without Sin, Pray For Us Who Have Recourse To Thee.

 



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. 

Get behind President Trump, or someone just like President Trump if such a person exists, and make America Constitutional again.

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.
