New post Fr. Fahey and the rejection of grace.
Fr. Denis Fahey, in an appendix to his book, “The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World” has this to say: “If we deliberately reject Our Divine Lord and His Grace (i.e., the graces He offers us), we try to make ourselves superior to God. Inevitably, we then run the risk of accepting the absurdities of Pantheism (and, I would say, of every other "-ism"), not only in practice, but even speculatively, for the will prevents the intellect from contemplating the full force of the arguments for Truth.

I find this emphasized bit particularly interesting, and also a bit frightening. It explains to me, at least in many cases, why those to whom we present what is obviously the truth about some matter cannot or will not accept it.

Comments?

The fact is that many people affirm that they believe that there can be opposing truths. That is is the basis, I think, of ecumenism/religious liberty. I can't say that I've ever come accross one of these people who did not clearly reject the One True God and/or His Grace in some way.

To me, such thinking is absolute proof of schizophrenia; a split brain, if not a split personality.

Most of my generation (X) are not trained in any method of discerning truth. There is a very good book called the Leipzig Connection which describes how behavioral modification became the foundation of American education, and probably every other western country. These pavlovian techniques are also used heavily in TV advertising and Tv programs (there is a reason they call them "programs") hence the child raised predominently in the school or in front of the Tv for the first 20 years of his life really needs to be DEPROGRAMMED before he will make any progress. IMO some of these people can be deprogrammed, if you can engage them in a discussion that's a start, if you can get a few facts into their heads (for instance how the mass was pretty much the same for the first 1950 years and then abruptly changed for no reason in 1969) it will grow like a seed until further confirmation that something is wrong with the V2 church may result in the person's conversion to tradition.

I think a lot of people can be turned around, I think we need troops on the ground handing out videos and pamphlets outside of NO Churches. I have not done it myself, at least not to the extent which I would like, but I think this could work.



The book is online hear.
