Real Crimes

There seems to be a confusion about the nature of evil and the Vatican's real crimes and grave sins...

It's not the petty powermongering politicking - not the aggrandised versions of nepotism and petty-pilfering, fraud and malfeasance with external sources...

It's most definitely not the shabby lurid sexual corruption...

It's SLOTH

It's its denial and suppression of evil throughout the world and its silence in the face of it
it's its collaboration, conspiracy and what's inevitably formal/material co-operation with evil by the sin of omission...

The evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls are having a field day because those who know about it - those with the authority and power to do something about it...do nothing!!!

The real battle is against acedia - and I am NOT referring to a remedy of being 'busy-busy-busy' doing nothing...

Evil is thriving because the good men are doing nothing and even by being there are thwarting the fight against it...if you are not about Heaven's work you stand in Heaven's way...

Peter Kreeft makes it categorically clear that one CANNOT WIN A WAR:

1.If you blissfully sew peace banners on the battlefield
2.If you do not know who you are fighting
3.If you do not know what kind of war you are fighting
4.If you do not know the basic rules of battle
5.If you do not know your enemy's battle plan
6.If you send your troops to the wrong battlefield
7.If you use the wrong weapons
8.If you do not know how to get the right weapon
9.If you are not confident of your inevitable victory.

St Michael the Archangel - do not merely defend us - remind us this is -like every day - a day of battle.....
