A FALSE SENSE OF FREEDOM
St. Benedict (pictured above) speaks with Marie-Julie Jahenny:
“ ‘Why are they not willing to perceive, at present time, God’s Justice visiting with you at every moment?’
--I do not know, good Saint.
“ ‘The reason is that, impelled by pride, they want to give satisfaction to their own wickedness and freedom, and nobody wants to give up any of his rights. That is what urges God to send the punishment shortly.”
[Excerpt from August 26, 1878, p. 232, Prophecies of La Fraudais].
Reflections on this prophecy:
St. Benedict is speaking to Marie-Julie Jahenny. In this mystical and holy conversation, St. Benedict questions mankind’s general blindness: “Why are they not willing to perceive?”
This universal denial of Truth is a fact which becomes more and more astounding to those with the True Faith living today.
People may understand some truths, but the average person “cannot perceive” reality enough to see the whole picture.
This is especially true regarding the exiled Papacy and the Church.
And there is universal denial of even simple truths, such as the evil of abortion, the errors of Communism, the evil of the antipopes. Their happy participation in, and support of, such evils is a proof of “God’s Justice visiting [us]”.
Mankind's denial of what is evidenced all around us is due to the sin of pride: “impelled by pride, they want to give satisfaction to their own wickedness and freedom”.
This false freedom is, of course, a lie fomented by the illusion of mankind being in control of life on this planet through technology and science. The average man does not understand how much he needs God for his sustenance.
The other factor that does not take the veil from their eyes to reveal the truth is that they are receiving false sacraments which offer no graces to their souls. This is the result of idolatry.
Mankind thinks it is in control of its life and destiny and “nobody wants to give up any of his rights”.
God will not be mocked. He made us to know Him, love Him, serve Him, and be with Him for all eternity. And so, the sins of today “[urge] God to send the punishment shortly.”
