Have we already forgotten the men who put a Pachamama idol in the Vatican? Have we forgotten the bishops and Cardinals who were complicit in this First Commandment violation through their resounding silence? As we will see, there are Biblical patterns that make sense of the fact that the people currently promoting pagan worship in the Catholic Church are the same ones overturning traditional worship.
First of all, consider the fact that the word “Paschal” (Easter) has the same roots as “Passover.” The Oxford Dictionary explains that “Paschal” was originally Middle English from the Old French taken from the ecclesiastical Latin paschalis. This word came from the similar Greek and Aramaic word which originally came from the Hebrew Pesaḥ meaning ‘Passover.’
And what was the first Passover in Exodus all about? It was about the Hebrews escaping the death of false-idols to worship the one True God who works miracles of life. As bad as slavery is, the account of the Exodus was not one of Moses being a social-justice warrior. Remember that God asked Moses to lead His people out of Egypt primarily to worship Him:
For the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have seen their affliction, wherewith they are oppressed by the Egyptians. But come, and I will send thee to Pharao, that thou mayst bring forth my people, the children of Israel out of Egypt. And Moses said to God: Who am I that I should go to Pharao, and should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said to him: I will be with thee: and this thou shalt have for a sign, that I have sent thee: When thou shalt have brought my people out of Egypt, thou shalt offer sacrifice to God upon this mountain.—Exodus 3:9-12, DRB.
Then, in the same chapter, God disproves the false-gods of Egypt by promising to destroy the false idols of Egypt with His miraculous plagues:
But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go, but by a mighty hand. For I will stretch forth my hand and will strike Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst of them: after these he will let you go.—Ex 3:19-20, DRB.
So, this Easter, we need to remember that First-Commandment violations (like the imposter who introduced the demon-god of the Pachamama into the Vatican) are the very worst offenses against God. This Easter, we must remember that God wishes to free his people from the statues leading to demon-worship (like the solar deity “Ra” over 3,000 years ago or the “Pachamama” in the Vatican just a few years ago) in order for His people to worship Him-Alone without idols.
Passover and the Paschal mystery are both about moving from death to life. Both Passover in the Old Testament and the Paschal mystery in the New Testament are about obtaining right-worship. This begins by overturning First-Commandment violations.Anyone who thinks this is a matter of a few curmudgeon Catholics having nostalgia for the Latin language in their sacraments needs to wake up and realize the Vatican is now instituting a new pagan Mayan-Mass on the heels of the infernal Pachamama.
Not only is this battle the entire conflict of the Bible, but it’s the entire account of the saints of the Catholic Church that the idols unto death must go before the true-worship unto life begins. This Lent, I re-read the life of St. Patrick. While it is true that St. Patrick evangelized the entire island of Ireland without dying a martyr, we often forget that there were attempts on his life. Why? Well, because St. Patrick the destroyed the false-idols of the Irish. He did this in order to establish the true worship of Roman Catholics. Consider the beginning of the account of his evangelization in Ireland:
“His methods were characterized by boldness. He did not try to work by quiet diffusion, by peaceful propaganda. [St. Patrick] lighted an enormous bonfire on the top of Slane in defiance of the royal edict and then had to appear before the High King to give an account of himself. Thus he joined issue at once. Everyone knows the story of that paschal fire lighted by Patrick on the first Easter of his mission. But Tirechan in the telling of it has a wonderfully expressive phrase. He says Patrick kindled the fire ‘in the nostrils of King Laoghaire.’ So strong was the tribal sentiment in Ireland and so accurate the missionary’s memory, he knew it was useless to try to work upward from the people. He attacked the chieftains, and when he won, the tribes followed. But Patrick’s was no timidly proffered apologetic. He flung Christianity in the face of Druidism…
“Wherefore then in Ireland they who never had the knowledge of God, but until now only worshipped idols and abominations—how has there been lately prepared a people of the Lord, and they are called children of God? Sons and daughters of Scottic chieftains are seen to become monks and virgins of Christ. . . . Their number increases more and more—and as for those of our race who are born there, we know not the number of them…”—The Life of St. Patrick by Alice Curtayne.
So, this is what happily happened to the pagan-Irish in the 5th century. As to us today, will we be graced with such a conversion of the whole world in the 21st century? Will we see the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart partly initiated “the prelate” promised by Our Lady of Good Success to the Catholic Church who would “restore the spirit of her priests.” Will the Vatican be cleared of the Pachamama demon and the pagan Mayan-Mass only by a set of plagues? Will we soon see the illumination of conscience leading to what Our Lady of Good Success promised would become the “full restoration of the Catholic Church.” Or, perhaps it is the truly end of the world and Jesus returns soon. Either way, I believe the Catholic Church will soon be freed from idols, restored to her ancient worship… or heavenly worship.
