Llera: Barbarians at the Gate!

ON FEBRUARY 16, 2008, Cardinal Carlo Caffara, Archbishop of Bologna, after a Mass celebrated at the tomb of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, granted an interview to Tele Radio Padre Pio.

In that interview, Caffara revealed that Sister Lucy of Fatima fame told him that the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan would be about marriage and the family.

Sister Lucia did not specify when this final battle would take place, but perhaps the vision Pope Leo XIII had on October 3, 1884 may be related. Just after celebrating Holy Mass on that day, Pope Leo XIII collapsed as if dead. After he was revived, he recounted a vision of Satan approaching the throne of God, boasting he will destroy the Church if given the chance to.

The Lord reminded Satan that his Church is invincible. Satan then replied, “Grant me one century and more power of those who will serve me, and I will destroy it.” Our Lord granted him 100 years.

The Lord then allowed the Pope a vision of the events of the 20th century: wars, immorality, genocide, and apostasy on a large scale. Alarmed by the spine-chilling vision, the Pope sat down and wrote the prayer to St. Michael, the same prayer the faithful pray today in times of distress.

Many believe that we are now in the midst of those 100 years.

Before the Irish people voted on May 22, 2015 to allow same-sex unions, 20 countries have already embraced same-sex unions either by legislation or via court decisions. Ireland was the first to do it by popular vote. These 20 countries are: The Netherlands (2000); Belgium (2003); Canada (2005); Spain (2005); South Africa (2006); Norway (2009); Sweden (2009); Argentina (2010); Iceland (2010); Portugal (2010); Denmark (2012); Brazil (2013); England and Wales (2013); France (2013); New Zealand (2013); Uruguay (2013); Luxembourg (2014); Scotland (2014); Finland: (signed 2015, effective 2017).

Then on June 26, 2015, SCOTUS – The US Supreme Court – voted 5-4 making same-sex unions legal in all United States.

Why did same-sex unions suddenly crop up in our discussions? Because same-sex unions are the weapon the Devil is using to destroy marriage and the family. By rejecting the God-mandated man-woman dichotomy of marriage, and by replacing it with the sterile man-man or woman-woman abomination, the Devil hopes to strike right at the heart of God’s plan for mankind and for all of Creation.

There’s only one reason why God instituted marriage: procreation. Malachi 2:15 is very clear: God instituted marriage so that godly offspring may result. But why would God want babies to be born? God has only one reason: to fill heaven with human beings. Now why would God do that? Because God wants us to share eternal happiness with him.

But, then, the Devil, forever malevolent and desiring nothing but the fall of man, will not have anything of that. That’s why he’d do everything he can to lead us away from our eternal destiny. His weapon of choice: same-sex unions, the very thing we see unfolding before our very own eyes today.

The Devil bade his time well. In order for him to succeed, he has to change the belief about sex being the exclusive privilege of a man and woman married to each other, about procreation being the reason for marriage. This the Devil succeeded in doing by making sex possible without it ever resulting in a pregnancy. The development in 1920 by Fredrick Killian of latex condoms; and the subsequent acceptance of contraception for the first time among any Christian group, by the Anglicans in 1930; the development in 1957 of lubricated condoms; and the widespread introduction of The Pill in the 60s were the Devil’s initial steps.

For good measure, the Devil put in abortion, then late-term abortion, then the killing of babies already born, and, now, the sale of baby body parts. Just as Roe vs. Wade in 1973 opened the world wide to abortion, the SCOTUS decision is expected to open the world wide to the sterile same-sex unions.

The Devil must have gloated over his initial successes. With marriage thus redefined, has the Devil won?
