Dr Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon continue their conversation about the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in light of the Freemason infiltration of the Church going back to 1917 when St Maximilian Kolbe witnessed the Freemasons protesting the Catholic Church.

“We live at a time that is broadly characterized by a subliminal relativism that penetrates every area of life. Sometimes this relativism becomes aggressive, when it opposes those who say that they know where the truth or meaning of life is to be found.”

“And we observe that this relativism exerts more and more influence on human relationships and on society. This is reflected, among other things, in the inconstancy and fragmentation of many people’s lives and in an exaggerated individualism. Many no longer seem capable of any form of self-denial or of making a sacrifice for others. Even the altruistic commitment to the common good, in the social and cultural sphere or on behalf of the needy, is in decline. Others are now quite incapable of committing themselves unreservedly to a single partner. People can hardly find the courage now to promise to be faithful for a whole lifetime; the courage to make a decision and say: now I belong entirely to you, or to take a firm stand for fidelity and truthfulness and sincerely to seek a solution to their problems.”

“The Church in Germany is superbly organized. But behind the structures, is there also a corresponding spiritual strength, the strength of faith in the living God? We must honestly admit that we have more than enough by way of structure but not enough by way of Spirit. I would add: the real crisis facing the Church in the western world is a crisis of faith. If we do not find a way of genuinely renewing our faith, all structural reform will remain ineffective.”

“If the Church, in Pope Paul VI’s words, is now struggling ‘to model itself on Christ’s ideal,’ this ‘can only result in its acting and thinking quite differently from the world around it, which it is nevertheless striving to influence.’ (Ecclesiam Suam, 58) In order to accomplish her mission, she will need again and again to set herself apart from her surroundings, to become in a certain sense ‘unworldly’.”

During the weekly general audience, Benedict XVI explained the mystery behind the Incarnation, saying that “God gives us the greatest gift possible, the gift of himself. For our sake, God became one of us, sharing our human existence to the fullest and giving us in exchange a share in his own divine life.”

We need these small moments from the Holy Father to understand the nature and welfare of our faith.  This faith that needs strength from his words–a chance to find love in that faith through Jesus Christ.

Children of God trust in Jesus’ infallibility and His advocate the Holy Spirit.  Trust in His vicar who He has given authority to teach and not leave us orphans in this dark world.  The Holy Spirit that we cannot see works in this world and can repel the darkness.  Trust in Jesus Christ.
