Satan’s Great Reset Religion Aims its Vile Weapons at Traditional Catholicism

The Atlantic magazine’s recent piece on the Rosary, How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-opt the Rosary, garnered considerable attention for its utterly bizarre attack on traditional Catholics:

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics. On this extremist fringe, rosary beads have been woven into a conspiratorial politics and absolutist gun culture. These armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that the rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal. . . . The rosary—in these hands—is anything but holy.”

 

Ironically, while the author might have persuaded some gullible readers that traditional Catholics use the Rosary to express their hatred toward non-Catholics, his hate-filled attack has doubtlessly prompted thousands of traditional Catholics to pray for his salvation. As Our Lord prayed for His executioners while dying on the Cross; as St. Stephen prayed for those stoning him to death (Acts 7:59); as countless martyrs have prayed for their persecutors; so faithful Catholics pray for those who seek to harm them.

Even if we have never heard it proclaimed as a religion, we know the Great Reset religion by its features.

Aside from providing us a reason to pray for the author, though, the unfortunate article gives us another hint at what Satan and his minions have planned for the Catholics they hate. As the celebration and promotion of hitherto intolerable immorality has become a cornerstone of the burgeoning Great Reset religion, those who stand in the way — especially Catholics who still think Jesus Christ meant what He unambiguously said — must be demonized and ultimately destroyed.

Even if we have never heard it proclaimed as a religion, we know the Great Reset religion by its features: it embraces complete tolerance of everyone except those whom it labels as intolerant; it lives by a new science that eschews all scientific truth (hence, men can become pregnant); in the name of free speech it promotes preposterous lies while absolutely forbidding the truth; it replaces natural law with diabolical disorientation; and, above all else, it detests the idea of Christ the King. Wickedness, insanity, and hate are not flaws of the Great Reset religion, they are indispensable features.

One might hope that the unmistakable wickedness, insanity, and hatred that characterize the Great Reset religion would limit its adherents to men and women who are so far removed from society that they could have virtually no influence on our daily lives, but the reality has proven otherwise. As the father of lies knew when he designed it, the new religion seduces the sensual members of society with its promise of unlimited license to sin, and taunts the cowardly members of society into submitting by calling them intolerant if they resist. As the Great Reset religion grows, it convinces feeble-minded skeptics that it cannot be all that wrong after all — yes, they conclude, the rigid moralists must be the bad guys.

Through the Great Reset religion, Satan has now redirected all worldly battles into attacks on God and those who adhere to the true Catholic religion He gave us.

But the devil always shows his tail. For better or worse, God has permitted one particular evil that should suffice to alert all rational and informed people that the devil is at work in attacking traditional Catholicism through the Great Reset religion: the fact that the apparent leader of the Catholic Church, Francis, accepts virtually every other set of beliefs in the world other than actual Catholicism. When we see Francis and his collaborators embrace the Great Reset religion and try to eradicate traditional Catholicism, we see the devil’s vile tail.

We cannot know with certainty how this will progress, but it seems reasonable to believe that we will soon reach the point at which we see widespread manifestation of the circumstances about which Our Lord warned:

“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, dragging you before kings and governors, for My Name’s sake. And it shall happen unto you for a testimony. Lay it up therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before how you shall answer. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to resist or gainsay. And you shall be betrayed by your parents and brethren, and kinsmen and friends; and some of you they shall put to death. And you shall be hated by all men for My Name’s sake. But a hair on your head shall not perish. In your patience you shall possess your souls.” (Luke 21:12-19)

These words from our Creator and Redeemer remind us that doing God’s will is far more important than anything else in the world. We must be willing to suffer all things for His sake. We should trust in Him, do His will, and let Him do the rest: “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to resist or gainsay.”

This is why the Great Reset religion hates the Rosary. Because the Blessed Virgin Mary always leads us to her Son.

Even with these promises from Our Lord, we may lose courage to stay the course when we consider the trials ahead. In his The Courage to Be Afraid, Fr. Marie-Dominique Molinié, O.P. provides a key insight into why we must place all our trust in Jesus and the grace He will give us in those trials:

“It is sufficient that God give us the grace of the present moment for the trial of the present moment. If at noon we imagine the trial of two o’clock, we will see the difficulty quite clearly, but we will see it without the grace of two o’clock, because grace is not something we can imagine. . . The imaginary trial is therefore always unbearable, whereas the real trial never is.”

So long as we earnestly seek to do God’s will, we will have His grace when we need it. This has always been the case, but we see it more clearly today because we realize that we are completely lost without God’s grace.

There is also something profoundly liberating about the current crisis once we realize that we are on the winning side of a spiritual battle that has so obviously subsumed every other conflict in the world. Through the Great Reset religion, Satan has now redirected all worldly battles into attacks on God and those who adhere to the true Catholic religion He gave us. Thus, we no longer need to deliberate about where our spiritual life should rank among our life priorities. Just as all the saints did, we can find peace in truly trying to heed the words of Our Lord: “Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). Even if we have no attraction to the spiritual life, we must try to become saints simply to survive.

However God chooses to use us, though, the most important thing we can do at any given moment is to say “yes” to all that He asks of us.

In this spiritual battle, Jesus is our commanding officer and our most important task at any given moment is to put ourselves entirely at His disposal. If we have any talents for fighting the wickedness around us, we must trust that God is infinitely better at putting them to good use than we are. Indeed, God will generally allow us to fail miserably if we think we can succeed without Him: “without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

Moreover, we know that Satan uses his Great Reset religion not only to mock God and lead souls to hell, but also to provoke Catholics to lose patience with God’s Providence and act precipitously. Satan and his globalist puppets would rejoice to push traditional Catholics into an ill-conceived rebellion such as the alleged Gunpowder Plot attempt to kill King James I in 1605. Indeed, The Atlantic’s hit piece on the Rosary and traditional Catholics ultimately seeks to ensnare all traditional Catholics in the event that the Great Reset insanity pushes any traditional Catholics to respond foolishly.

All of this fits with what Sister Lucia told Fr. Agustin Fuentes in her 1957 interview, in which she described the only remedies we have at this point:

“God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies which signify there will be no others.”

This is why the Great Reset religion hates the Rosary. Because the Blessed Virgin Mary always leads us to her Son, both the Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary focus our attention on doing all we can to say “yes” to all that God asks of us.

Once we resolve to say “yes” to everything that God asks of us, we may find that He leads us to the lowest ranks in His army or to the positions of highest responsibility. However God chooses to use us, though, the most important thing we can do at any given moment is to say “yes” to all that He asks of us. By doing this, we will follow the Blessed Virgin Mary to the foot of the Cross, where we can pray for our enemies and await God’s triumph and our own.

O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully. (Pope Pius XII consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
