Despite the fact that one finds numerous little "pockets" of genuine devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, there are just as many misguided souls seduced by Satan who delude themselves with false devotions. Then, there is the vast majority of Catholics who have abandoned their devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary following the example and direction of false teachers and pastors.
Man's time and God's time often do not coincide. Man's time is measured more by his own short-lived role on the stage of life. God's time sometimes makes us impatient because God's time is more mysterious than man's.
Not many Catholics would have the intellectual courage to admit that the "ecumenical movement" is nothing more than Satan's last burst of effort to destroy the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ (the Roman Catholic Church) and all that it represents.
What better way to erase from the mind and heart of mankind true religion by substituting it with false religion? False religion - as opposed to true religion - does not lead souls to their final beatitude. It cannot do so for the simple reason that God is One and His external expression of order can only reflect His oneness. "Diversity" as promoted today, is nothing more than a lie to persuade good people that evil is now acceptable, and thereby begin the rapid process of making them evil.
The once-influential Catholic system of education has been undermined to the point that whatever supernatural faith a young man or young lady may have had is quickly eroded by their teachers. Naturalism - the popular heresy of the day - is the religion promoted by Lucifer.
To crush the head of this teacher of all heresies, God has chosen the humble, obedient instrument of His Providence: the Blessed Virgin Mary.
If we were to ask those who now control our schools and churches: What is the purpose of Christian Education, we may wait a long time for a correct answer. But, there is a quick and easy answer: Pope Pius XI formulated the answer in the following simple words: "Its proper and immediate end is to cooperate with divine grace in forming the true and perfect Christian, that is, to form Christ Himself in those regenerated by Baptism."
Now, in this role of transformation, God has chosen the Blessed Virgin Mary to play a definite and essential part to lead souls to Jesus Christ.
While so many have eagerly abandoned their faith to please their heretic neighbors, God has deemed otherwise. While so many have cast aside their badge of honorable devotion to the Immaculate Conception and have embraced a way of maculate deception, God has placed all the graces of salvation in the hands of Mary. For this reason, she is called the Mediatrix of All Graces.
The late Malachi Martin tried to appease and placate his Protestant friends by insisting that the Church would not declare the Mother of God as "Mediatrix of All Graces". Malachi is dead; but the Mother of God survives him.
The time has come, dear friends, for all of us who still honor the name `Catholic' to renew and strengthen our devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary through devotion to her under the title of the Immaculate Heart and as the true Mediatrix of All Graces.
No one comes to the Father except through the Son. Our Lord Himself assured us of this. Likewise, no one comes to the Son except through Mary. The Holy Ghost assures us of this.
This year's Seraph will be devoted to particular emphasis on true devotion to Mary. We will investigate the many claims and counter-claims regarding the Blessed Mother of God. Among these claims and counter-claims is the question of consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary - a condition for peace in the world.
The first step towards a genuine devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is to renounce all the high-pressured propaganda in favor of religious indifference as expressed in the deceptive buzz word "ecumenism".
The kind of "ecumenism" preached universally in all once Catholic churches is the Modernism condemned by Pope St. Pius X.
Every Catholic should have the courage to not only recognize the errors preached in their churches, but every error concerning the Blessed Sacrament and the Blessed Virgin Mary. These errors are sometimes so well disguised that the people are unaware of them. They attend their accustomed parish church without realizing that those who may have been validly ordained nevertheless have embraced heresy just to please their heretical bishops.
Then, too, most people (including the clergy) pay no attention to the fact that the Sacraments have been mutilated so as to deny their validity and, therefore, their ability to convey the grace which they would produce.
Future articles will examine the fraudulent promoters of devotion to Mary who use her name as much as heretics use the Name of Our Lord. In both cases, there is no authentic devotion that goes beyond mere lip-service.
It is already a foregone conclusion that the heretical leaders of such groups will never be open to the grace of conversion. These are left to God's mercy and/or justice. What is important, however, is reaching the many well-intentioned people who are unaware of what is actually going on. Their devotion cannot bring them supernatural grace because they are outside the Church without even knowing it.
