Imagine . . .
By Fr. Robert J. Carr
©Catholic Online 2005
Imagine that the Lord has just appeared to you as you sit at your computer.
He leads you to a meeting. You can see the room, it is a place of decision making. There are men and women sitting around a table. A man is talking. He speaks about a safe environment program one of several accepted in yet another diocese. Laity protest, yet, it will go forth. Then the Lord brings out a piece of paper. Undeniable proof that this program is published by an organization that was originally a prostitute's union. He shows you the man being informed of this and then secretly calling the publisher, telling people to take this information off the company's website. The man then continues to deny ad infinitum the true origins of the organization.
Our Lord shows you recruiting advertising in gay community newspapers for the publisher of the program. He shows you an actual meeting of Evangelical Christians screaming, "How did this program get into the Catholic Church?" and then He turns to you and asks that you answer that question.
He takes you to a garden. It is a beautiful place. There is a woman naked standing next to a tree; she is innocent and unscathed. Yet, she is having a conversation with something in a tree. You hear the words "You will be like gods." The Lord looks to you and asks "if Adam was my Father's first creation, why was Eve the first one to be tempted."
Our Lord shows you one newspaper after another and leads you to see the move to bring total control of creation out of his hands and into the hands of the academic elite. Justice is skewed toward the rich away form the poor.
You see a race of people being created from designer genes. They alone have the right to jobs and status. You see married lesbian couples working with scientists to bring forth this race more and more everyday. They are married in Massachusetts in the shadow of Harvard and MIT; everything they do is legal because the lesbians are legally married.
You see children created to supply blood and organs to their less healthy siblings. You see the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer and Our Lord tells you that you will see even more nightmares momentarily.
You hear a phone conversation, a man. He talks about courses in evangelization in the seminaries and you realize there are seminaries where this is never taught. Our Lord takes you to major universities, classrooms filled with secular philosophy. Professors teach that anyone who still believes in God is stupid. It is a neo-pagan philosophy. We are gods now. You see people, in your church, worship universities as if they were gods. They are. They are the gods of the pagan philosophy of today.
You look around and see Catholic high schools where the rosary is unknown, atheists teaching science in Catholic schools, masses are no longer celebrated for students and faculty by order of the administration. They say mockingly and falsely that Catholics cannot believe in evolution and then dismissively teach creation. The bible is dismissed as ancient literature. Catholic college students hear the same secular philosophies found at secular universities.
Our Lord takes you to a place of great sadness. It looks like a war zone. There is rubble, hollowed out buildings, dust, lots of dust and little else. There is not a stone upon a stone. You realize it is the World Trade Center attack. There is a message. The evil deeds are turned to prophesy. The terrorists are foiled in their destruction, for God steals the power from their message and uses it to alert his people. The terrorists' victims are in His hands; the warnings are for us. The warning is against putting our hope in money and turning from Christ. You see the cross found at the bottom of the rubble. It confirms the parable.
You begin to see grant money in the billions changing hands. Embryonic Stem Cell research, the new alchemy. Those who engage in it watch their souls die within them; it makes no difference. It is grant money, it funds lifestyles of scientists, administrators, classrooms, college faculty, politicians. You see politicians do everything they can to support it with hopes that their governments will be rich. Yet, you see many a person selling his soul for that grant money.
Human beings become commodities. We are in a world of harvesting human beings. "The Catholic Church must be silenced or we will lose our money." Human error is not accounted for, just as the case of the Titanic. Already there have been errors. PR professionals move quickly to quell concern. Millions in grant money are at stake.
You watch a classroom where there is a man. He holds up a book to his students. This is his manual for study. He is not the author he adds. He opens the book to a page of quotes. The book is being used to take down the Catholic Church so that the new gods may reign.
You hear the chant, "Convince people that Jesus' resurrection was philosophical, and not physical."
You hear two people talking on the phone. "We are reliving the books of Maccabees. It is like they are saying 'Let us all water down our faith so that we all get along as one big happy family,' " says one.
"Then the issue was Jewish Dietary Laws, now it is the resurrection of Jesus Christ." Says the other.
The first responds, "That account is only in a Catholic bible, most people will not figure out what is happening . . ." The call fades away.
You see a letter, it comes from an employee in a diocese. The letter talks about Easter, Tulips, Spring and social justice. There is no mention of Jesus' Resurrection. The Lord asks you if the writer believes in the Resurrection. "Is Easter really all about tulips?" He asks.
The image fades, another appears. It is of Jesus being nailed to the cross. "Lord have mercy on them, for they know not what they do." He is upright on the cross and dies.
The image disappears. You see a man on a lone, dark road. It is after hours in a state park and no one is around. The man is in prayer and he sees the nightmare you were warned about earlier. Billions of souls, each one lost. Each one bought into the philosophy that they were like gods. Unable to repent for they were told there is no God and there is no sin. "We don't need him anymore." The bible is mocked as foolish. The faithful are labeled fools. Now each of the prideful, billions of souls, lost. Men and women, many baptized, poorly catechized, never evangelized. All lost, forever. Satan laughs with drunken joy.
The image fades away and you find yourself before the Lord again. He vanishes before you.
Now you are back alone at your computer. You realize you have just been informed. Now you must decide how you must act.
