Image is everything



Venerable Fulton Sheen stated:

“The means of life no longer minister to peace and order because we have perverted and forgotten the true ends of life . . . It is not our politics that has soured nor our economics that have rusted; it is our hearts. We live and act as if God had never made us.”

In other words, our civilization has forgotten that we we were made in the image and likeness of God. And when a society that has forgotten this truth -- or even worse, rejects this truth like it has done today -- the alternative it opens itself to is Marxism, which we spoke about in the previous post "Our Times . . . Eclipse or Apocalypse."

And it is as clear as day that society has embraced Marxism with open arms (cue Journey). And then it spreads its poison through deliberate misleading labels like "Black Lives Matter [BLM]". Fulton Sheen always warned us of the dangers of an uneducated, non-critical society who would be manipulated by slogans and catch-phrases. He said that slogans are intended to control those who can't think for themselves. And we see today how right Sheen was.

"Black Lives Matter" is a perfect example. BLM has NOTHING to do with ending racism. It has as much to do with ending racism as Planned Parenthood does with promoting parenthood. The only thing planned in Planned Parenthood is the date it will murder a mother's child in her womb.

BLM is not a movement against racism. On the contrary, it is a movement that needs racism continually fomented in order for it to accomplish its satanic goals -- yes, SATANIC. Remember, Satan ALWAYS hides his agenda under the auspices of something that sounds or looks "good".

On their "What We Believe" web page, BLM says,

"We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting."

Bonded by God? The inherent dignity within every person? No. Bonded by "a beautiful struggle." Sounds like Hegel's dialectic to me. Ok, so, what are they struggling against that they wasn't to change? Well, here is what they profess:

"We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
"We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
"We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise)."

What!?! What does this have to do with racism? This is not about ending racism. This is the complete dismantling of the entire Christian moral order and the definition

of the family.

And this entire section of BLM's credo is prefaced with this statement containing a major flag within it that you hopefully pick up right away:

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

Yes, prefacing that quoted section of the creed above with "comrade" sums up all that follows. And we know who uses this kind of language . . . Marxists.

What is most striking in the whole profession of faith of BLM is that not once within all the conflicting language is there the mention of God. Hence, the confused language as to what BLM is and what it believes. This is a mark of the demonic: confused identity. It is like the possessed young man in Scripture. When Jesus asked the demon its name, it cried out: "My name is Legion, for we are many" (cf. Mark 5:9). Both the singular and the plural are used by the demon in identifying itself. Just complete confusion of identity. And it is by this confusion of identity among civilization today that confirms how much the demonic is loose.

And this is what happens in a life separated from God -- the God in whose image we were all created and from Whom our inalienable rights come. Remove God and you become confused about your origin, your identity, where you are going and where your rights come from.

And this is how the Marxist-Communists work. Once you deny God and the spirit, then you deny the source of your rights . . . which are now given by the party/mob/movement/gang, who decides whose lives matter and what rights you actually have. The value of any and all human life becomes completely relative.

That is why what is taking place throughout the United States (and throughout the world) is not a protest movement. This is a revolution. A revolution against God and wherever HIs image is found. Why else tear down a statue of St. Junipera Serra and start calling for the destruction of anything that points to European Christianity and even the Blessed Mother herself? This not a joke. The great persecution is being initiated. Next will be the purge.

Make no mistake. This is their entire agenda: remove God, destroy the family by redefining the entire moral order. There is no intimately connected brotherhood, only an impersonal comradeship. Why? Because they have rejected God, Who is Father.

Fulton Sheen explains this for us:

Our blessed Lord tied together love of Himself, love of neighbor, and love of ourselves.There could be two great errors: one is to love God without loving our neighbor, and the other would be to love our neighbor without loving God.
We are often invited to take part in brotherhood causes; there’s much talk of the brotherhood of man. All that is very good and true, but how can we be brothers unless we have a common Father? To leave the Fatherhood of God out of the brotherhood of man is to make us all a race of illegitimate children.

And this is what we are battling, a battle that must be won in the heart of every home. Then it will never trickle out into society. But the first breakdown is always that of the home.

Fulton Sheen makes clear the choice before our world right now:

"The choice before the world is not some humanitarian society and communism. It is either brotherhood in Christ, or comradeship in anti-Christ! They [the communists] have chosen that particular comradeship. It is for us as a free nation to chose the truth! To chose the good! To choose and affirm God and the freedom of the peoples of the world!"


How do we begin to reclaim this brotherhood in the midst of a vehemently anti-God, anti-Christian revolution that is spreading like wild fire and becoming more and more violent by the day? It is only by rediscovering God's image in every human person. And the more our lives magnify His image, the more others will see God and the more we will see the common brotherhood we all share under a common Father.

How do we do this? Seriously, we must go back to 1531 -- to the very heart (geographic center) of all the Americas in Mexico City. It is there where God revealed the answer to the problems of the Americas (and the world) . . . then and now. That answer was His Mother and the image she left behind that converted an entire civilization that had no idea that they were created in the image of God. As a result, human life had no value other than to satisfy the blood-thirsty "gods" which the Aztec culture worshiped. It was a hopeless picture.

But God's answer to that hopeless picture was a not a war nor any other form of violence, but another "picture" -- a new image.We've heard the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Well, the image that Our Blessed Mother would leave behind of herself would be worth 9 million Aztec souls and the millions who have found Christ through her in the centuries that followed!

In the miraculous image she left behind, Mary "spoke" one word -- GOD. In one snapshot -- the only selfie we have Our Blessed Mohther, by the way -- the remedies to all the Aztecs evils (and all cultures of death) were realized. Everything in that image speaks God. In that one miraculous image of Our Blessed Mother is depicted as both "the Woman" of Genesis 3:15 and "the Woman" of Revelation 12 (the woman of the Apocalypse). Thus we have the unveiling (the "apocalypse") of God's entire plan of salvation and the meaning of our own lives -- to magnify God through our bodies.

Mary almost appears to be an eclipse of the sun behind her. But, in fact, the opposite is true. Mary, who is most pure and emptied of self, MAGNIFIES the Lord (as she told Elizabeth at the Visitation). Thus, we see the image of God magnified in and through Mary, which unveiled to the Aztecs their true identity as children of this woman and the God magnified through her. They saw themselves for the first time as brothers and sisters of a family extended to them by God Himself.

Yes, ALL of this was "spoken" through the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. And that is why nine million Aztecs converted within eight years of her apparitions.A Pentecost a day for 8 years!

So, for the new Pentecost needed today, Mary is the answer to our lost and violent culture. She is the answer in that she reveals what it truly means to bear the image of God to a civilization of death and Godlessness. She reveals the power that comes through us when we, like her, bear the image of God to civilization. As our model and mother, Mary is what we are called to be and she is the one through whom God's image comes to us as we see in the miraculous image in Mexico.

So, why don't we start changing our tactics against these Neo-Marxist, anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-life revolutionaries and do three things:

  1. Bring the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to these hotspots of revolution and pray the rosary for her mediation to bring about peace (Fatima) and the conversion of our confused and misled brothers and sisters in Christ.

  2. Bear the image of God in ourselves that will draw them back to God. This can only be done bu living a life of purity.

  3. Show them, like St. John Paul II, St. Maximilian Kolbe and St. Teresa of Calcutta that while we wholeheartedly reject their poisonous and destructive morals and beliefs, we still love them because we see the image of God in them -- even if it's in a dark eclipse.

It's very hard to see God's image in them, but it IS there. And Fulton Sheen reminds us that it is PRECISELY because God's image is still in them that makes them lovable. God is there and we love God in them. Let them see God's image in us first like Our Lady of Guadalupe did to the Aztecs. then they will be able to see God's image in themselves and in eventually in their neighbor.

Our counter-revolution is to show them the apocalypse of the truth through our bodies, through our actions.

In our modern world, we often hear, "Image is everything." Well, that's actually true. And this is why.

The question is, "Whose image do you reveal to the world?"
