Listen … We are at War… “Secular War on the Supernatural.”

Fr. Richard Heilman, Roman Catholic Man:

Listen … We are at war. Dr. Alice von Hildebrand rightly called it a “Secular War on the Supernatural.” All the myriad life-and-death battles being fought on the socio-political and religious fronts today are mere symptoms of the root conflict – Satan and his secular army are at war with the supernatural. And, in this war, the vast majority of us are like a bunch of buck privates running around like chickens with their heads cut off … not following orders, with no supernatural body armor and no supernatural weapons … we’re sitting ducks for the enemy. Why? Because we think we can fight supernatural realities with our natural means. Or, we simply do not believe in supernatural realities.

In his letter to Timothy, St. Paul warns of these times:

“But understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power. Reject them” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

but deny its power
but deny its power
but deny its power

This has been the campaign of the devil all along … root out any belief in the supernatural which then gives the devil the upper hand in this war. The strong insurgency began with the pride-filled, so-called Enlightenment of the 18th century that paved the way for the Communist Russian Revolution which was unleashed in … wait for it … 1917. What are the errors of Russia? Communism is an atheistic ideology that ultimately denies God’s natural order and natural law, which God inscribed on the hearts of men. Ultimately, it denies the supernatural.

In 1917 … in the days between Our Lady of Fatima’s June 13 apparition and July 13 apparition, Pope Benedict XV released his timely encyclical, Humani Generis Redemptionem on June 15, 1917. It would prove to be prophetic. In it he addressed an issue that he “looked upon as a matter of the greatest and most momentous concern” …

“If on the other hand, we examine the state of public and private morals, the constitutions and laws of nations, we shall find that there is a general disregard and forgetfulness of the supernatural, a gradual falling away from the strict standard of Christian virtue, and that men are slipping back more and more into the shameful practices of paganism.”

This is the leftist agenda, in nutshell … whether they are consciously aware of it or not.

So, you can see, Our Lady appears as this war against the supernatural is erupting. Out of love for her children, she is pulling out all of the stops, including reminding us of the consequence of lives lived away from God – she showed them Hell.
