Shame on Ireland. While strolling through Rome last month, Bishop Selway and I met an Irish lady who asked us to pray for Ireland, because in a few days (May 25th) there would be a referendum concerning abortion.
Ironically the woman was a Protestant, although she was from Galway, which is in the Republic of Ireland, nearly entirely Catholic.
A staggering 66.4% of the Irish, nearly all Catholics, voted in favor of legalizing the murder of innocent babies. The voting followed lines of age: those against were mostly from the older generation; those in favor mostly from the younger generation. My Irish grandfather must be turning in his grave to think that his race would have voted for the legalization of such a heinous crime. If he were alive I could just imagine what he would say, perhaps not entirely repeatable.
Shame on Argentina. The Congress of Argentina, another nearly entirely Catholic country, recently voted to permit abortions to take place up to fourteen weeks of pregnancy.
Shame on Poland. Yet another nearly completely Catholic country, Poland, with deep roots of Catholicism and many well-known saints to its name, recently permitted a “gay pride” parade in Warsaw.
This parade, entirely legal, came only a few months after Poland’s government declared that Christ was the King of Poland.
King of Poland? To proclaim Christ as King of your country, and at the same time to permit sodomites to parade in your capital to show off their pride in their sexual perversions is an act of the grossest hypocrisy. It is pure pharisaism, that is, to pretend piety and devotion on the outside, but to be corrupt interiorly.
It is the same thing as to hang a picture of Christ the King in your home, and then to spit upon it.
Our Lord had very hard words for the Pharisees. The holy Gospel is filled with these hard words, showing a particular disgust that Our Lord had for those who would give God fine words on the outside, but love sin on the inside. In Saint Matthew Our Lord addresses these hypocrites in this way: “Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men’s bones, and of all filthiness.” (Matthew XXIII: 27)
Poland has placed a crown of thorns upon the head of their King.

I believe abortion has been around for a very long time; are these pro-choice women happy or sad that their mothers and grandmothers accepted the precious gift God gave them. Or is it possible that they would have preferred to be murdered in the warmth and safety of their mothers wombs? Something to ponder.
Perhaps St Matthew won’t mind a minor adjustment to his entry.
“Woe to you Modernist Cardinals and Bishops, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men’s bones, and of all filthiness.” (Matthew XXIII: 27)
How much longer can we go on like this? More precisely, how much longer will Almighty God hold back His just anger? We’ve come to expect this following Vatican II, but it still has an impact and gives you a sick feeling…
I think the worst chastisement that God can give us is to let this world keep going the way it is. It would be a mercy if he were to unleash His wrath upon us.
Wow,this is one of the best realizations I’ve read in many months!
