Atila's Christmas Message

The Night of Christmas


    In these times, all but a small remnant seem to be forsaking the Day of Our Lord in opting for Night and Darkness. That night grows darker the longer one embraces it. The only way to shed its suffocating shroud is by heeding the light of His Mother, illuminated by grace. Only then will we be able to make sense of the confusion created over the last half century; only then will we be able to safely navigate out of the void that engulfs so many more souls in the hopeless black hole of temporal illusions.

      "In this dark night of the Church and the State, there is only one grand star that continues to shine. It is the message of the twin apparitions of Our Lady that warned us about the crisis in the Church and State and pointed to a new era to come, the Reign of Mary, which will be built over the ruins of this progressivist Church and revolutionary State. I am referring to the revelations of Our Lady of Fatima, which foretold a great chastisement and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and those of Our Lady of Good Success, which predicted the same."

    The birth of the Divine Infant at night, forsaken by all the inhabitants of Bethlehem but a few shepherds, has some lessons for us, Traditional Catholics, on this Christmas in the early 21st century.

    We are, without a doubt, in a deep night. The light coming from the sun of the Papacy has disappeared. The sky is dark. No more clear teachings, a lack of consistency with the previous Magisterium. Worst of all, during these last 40 years we have received from the Chair of Peter a mixture of confusion and error. Old modernist and liberal errors were resurrected by the conciliar Popes and spread broadly throughout the Catholic world in a way difficult to predict. Spread with maliciousness. The malice lies in spreading the errors in an environment of intentional confusion. So if someone denounces an error, this confusion allows the guilty party to present a sophistic interpretation to save the appearance of orthodoxy.

    The stars of the firmament of the Church - the Bishops, successors of the Apostles - no longer emit light or luster. Almost all have violated their fidelity to Catholic principles with compromises to maintain careers and comforts. Numerous are deeply committed to the evil ideal of Progressivism. The few exceptions are fearful to confront the higher religious authority. Night and darkness.

    From the civil State - represented by the moon, according to many interpreters of symbolism - we have become accustomed to receive lies and demagogy. In every country, the general lines of civil legislation almost invariably favor Socialism and moral tolerance. In international affairs, measures support the constitution of a Masonic world government. In public affairs, the hegemony of Freemasonry and Judaism is virtually complete. With this simple formula almost everything and everyone are controlled: politics relies on the money and favors of commerce and industry; commerce and industry rely on the money and favors of the banks, and the banks rely on the money and favors of international Jewish finance. Such money and favors are very rarely conceded without a demand for increasingly serious ideological and moral compromises.

    The social elites are not giving the light of good example and upright behavior as they should. What is good and honorable receives almost no prestige or fame. Instead, from these elites daily we are offered moral scandals and examples of vulgarity and egalitarianism.

    The light of the sun has vanished, as well as that of the moon and the stars.

    In this dark night of the Church and the State, there is only one grand star that continues to shine. It is the message of the twin apparitions of Our Lady that warned us about the crisis in the Church and State and pointed to a new era to come, the Reign of Mary, which will be built over the ruins of this progressivist Church and revolutionary State. I referring to the revelations of Our Lady of Fatima, which foretold a great chastisement and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and those of Our Lady of Good Success, which predicted the same.

    This is our star of Bethlehem that shows us where the Divine Infant is sleeping, waiting for us to pay Him our homage. Along with the incomparable homage of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her most noble spouse St. Joseph, we can also pay our homage. It can be the majestic homage of the Three Eastern Kings or the modest homage of those few shepherds of Bethlehem.

    They were the only ones who understood where the future was in that dark and cold night.

A Must Read!

to order this book click here Few scholars have the thorough acumen to trace and document the why, what, when, where, how and who as Atila has done in his marvelous Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani? collection which, book by book, exposes the the massive, murky mess that has been created as a result of the Vatican II agenda. His latest book above Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia is key to understanding the purpose and rationale of those who would twist the Sacred Deposit of the Faith to accommodate sin and who must be exposed and eradicated for the welfare of Holy Mother Church. It is a must read in order to alert all to how deep the rot goes and why the scandal in America was really only the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you also to read Gary Morella's review of Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia.
