A Catedral que Santificou Joana D'arc, Foi Profanada pela Rev. Francesa, Coroou Napoleão, Sobreviveu a Hitler, e Celebrou Missas para Vítimas de Terrorismo Islâmico.


Hoje em dia, os jovens confundem Notre Dame com Nostradamus, uma desgraça, uma tristeza, que por vezes me faz desanimar demais.

A Catedral Notre-Dame foi profanada e teve suas estátuas destruídas pelos maçons da Revolução Francesa, mas sobreviveu a Hitler, que não tocou nela.

No entanto, o multiculturalismo ateu que tomou conta da França e do mundo pode ser uma bomba muito maior do que o comunismo e o nazismo. Como Cristo disse, aqueles que apenas matam fisicamente os cristãos não fazem muito mal, mas aqueles que destroem as almas dos cristãos fazem um mal terrível.

Pedro você diz: "Hoje em dia, os jovens confundem Notre Dame com Nostradamus, uma desgraça, uma tristeza, que por vezes me faz desanimar demais". Se visse a preguiça de padres ensinar os católicos, chegando ao absurdo de entregarem crianças a adolescentes bobos que nada entendem de Catolicismo para lhes dar o catecismo. Eu mesmo senti na pele a burrice e negligência de padres em me dar orientação sobre alguns sacramentos. Então desisti e resolvi buscar aprender por conta própria. Graças Deus há muitos bons leigos e padres conservadores pela internet fazendo vídeos. publicando documentos e escrevendo. Cito a exemplo a página do Apostolado Ferr https://www.apostoladoferr.com/

Obrigado, pela indicação do site, meu amigo.

Rezemos pela Igreja. Muitos padres nos fazem sofrer, mas alguns nos salvam.

Abraço

Boa Noite!

Realmente a observação sua, Pedro, é pertinente, pois ainda temos bons padres, que sofrem junto com a Santa Igreja.
O que o Adilson diz, vez ou outra compartilho com minha esposa, se um dia nos apresentarmos para sermos catequistas e ensinarmos as verdades da fé, presumo que não seremos catequistas por muito tempo.
Desejo-lhes uma Santa Páscoa, que Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo e Nossa Senhora das Dores sejam nosso auxílio neste vale de lágrimas!

Cristo vive, Cristo Reina, Cristo impera!

Amém, caríssimo.
Estou realmente precisando muito de Jesus Cristo e Nossa Senhora.

Que você, sua esposa e toda sua família tenham uma santa Páscoa também, meu caro.
