Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Tidings of Great Joy

April 8th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Dear friends, this post marks the 1,000th post on this blog. In less than one year, we have formed a league of brethren, united in faithful solidarity to the Holy Mother Church, each individual professing by his or her actions a love for God, a love for His Son, and a love for His Son’s Mystical Spouse. We have come together as a pained and besieged community. Indeed, we see the scars of battle in our comment boxes, where the faithful from all over the world recount their own grievances, their own losses, their own triumphs over perfidy.

As we go forth, in a genuine and faith-filled hope, we must keep in mind that what we are doing, our diligent pursuit of orthodoxy, our rooting out of faithlessness, our intolerance of error, is rooted firmly in the Church, through Her Scriptures and Her Sacred Tradition, so readily trample upon by the liberals in our midst. Aware of this, let us pause in our mission to read the words of the psalmist, who penned the following in the 75th Psalm:

2 We will praise you, O God: we will praise, and we will call upon your name. We will relate your wondrous works: 3 When I shall take a time, I will judge justices. 4 The earth is melted, and all that dwell therein: I have established the pillars thereof. 5 I said to the wicked: Do not act wickedly: and to the sinners: Lift not up the horn. 6 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not iniquity against God. 7 For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert hills: 8 For God is the judge. One he puts down, and another he lifts up: 9 For in the hand of the Lord10 But I will declare for ever: I will sing to the God of Jacob. 11 And I will break all the horns of sinners: but the horns of the just shall be exalted. there is a cup of strong wine full of mixture. And he has poured it out from this to that: but the dregs thereof are not emptied: all the sinners of the earth shall drink.

 May God bless you for your love of orthodoxy. May God uphold you in your defense of it. May God strengthen you in all adversity.
