MEDJUGORJE NEWS UPDATE: The Way of The Cross


MEDJUGORJE NEWS: THE WAY OF THE CROSS 

....as lovers of Christ we are called to lay our life down and take up the cross of Christ in faith and truth...since we are indeed Easter people we sow the seeds of hope in our works..a hope in the resurrection..to be able to consummate this union a death must occur..the death of our selfish desires must take place...we must mortify our self-will and take into account all the Church teaches..so that we can become true witnesses to the testimony of Christ in the cross....

...as Padre Pio said he loves the cross..since on that cross he sees Jesus..and so we must make our life a continual way of the cross...if we wish to be sincere ...so that the eternal birth which is the fountain of renewal takes place within us otherwise it is of no avail...the traditional way of the cross is composed of 14 stations which outline important moments during the passion of our Lord...these stations usually have annexed to them a short meditation so that we can make a dispensation of our intellect to the mortifications of the cross...
..in MEDJUGORJE we see there is no mortification of the self..since adherents to the message seek solace in visions and have become spiritually obsequious to unapproved spiritual formation as purveyed by unapproved seers....such a person is feeding their own notion as to what spirituality they pick and choose to suit their own delectations..we see this is not the cross of Christ but a peculiar festival of counterfeit peace...without unity of cause..and out of latent contempt for competent authority we see a subversion of the cross of Christ....


..what we have occurring in MEDJUGORJE is counterfeit peace...since we have concord of  wills it is falsely mistaken that peace is educed..however to have true peace we must have agreement of wills which is well-ordered according to truth...since peace is tranquility of order in which all a soul’s appetites rest together in God...since in MEDJUGORJE we have dissension to competent authority (the local Ordinary)..we cannot have peace..since dissension to the authority of Christ is contrary to a spirit of peace....as well we also have dissension to the Holy See itself since many people at MEDJUGORJE are absolutely certain the Virgin is appearing...however no official approval for a cultus of Mary has ever been passed forward by the Vatican...as well people are allowed to visit but in no ways can such a visit be a verification of the supernaturality associated if any with the apparitions themselves....

 

....as we see true love of Christ begins when one takes up the cross and follows in the footsteps of the divine master....according to the first station of the way of the cross Jesus is condemned to death...in the accompanying meditation Jesus is handed over by Pilate..to remain a friend of Caesar and to condemn innocence to death..since Pilate found no fault in Jesus..we see that Pilate sought to please men above God...in MEDJUGORJE we see the same attitude adherents to the message seek to please themselves and to please the seers however no-one seeks to please and respect the wishes of the local Ordinary(the BISHOP)  who as a man of God with proper faculties and as a competent authority..is being vilified and ignored..just as Jesus was ignored and sold into ignominy...

 

....in the second station of the cross Jesus is made to carry the cross..if we see in MEDJUGORJE the local Ordinary himself is made to carry the cross as well...to suffer insults and indignity which owing to his station he deserves a higher regard..however out of love for Jesus the Bishop has carried the cross for all these years..not once capitulating to the desires of those who seek to destroy the unity within the church....
 

 
 ..station three...Jesus falls the first time since the weight of our sins are an oppressing burden..as well in MEDJUGORJE we see the oppressive burden and the shame the local bishop must endure all for love of truth and tradition...indeed his popular appeal and credibility and the credibility of the church itself has fallen as the renegades and rebellious fanatics have tried to usurp the authority at this place....however since the bishop truly loves Christ he has gotten back up and remains stalwart in his convictions....
 
 
..the Virgin Mary at MEDJUGORJE..weeping at all the disobedience to her spiritual son the successor of the apostles (the Bishop of MOSTAR)...
 
...station four...just as Jesus met his mother on his way..the local Bishop at MEDJUGORJE must endure threats and lies in the name of love for Jesus and his mother..how Mary herself must weep at the sight of one of her sons being so badly treated...as Jesus on the cross said to John behold your mother...the bishop at MEDJUGORJE as a son of Mary ...as a successor to the apostles must endure constant calumny all in the name of love for Mary..there seems to be an apparent contraindication to love...as competent authority is purloined by the outward entreaty of the seers at MEDJUGORJE to defiance and the selfish interior dispositions of the adherents as betrayed by their flippant attitude regarding the good Bishop...

 
..station five..Simon of Cyrene is compelled to help Jesus carry the cross...so we see the local Bishop at MEDJUGORJE also is compelled to help Jesus carry the cross of truth and unity..the cross which spiritually signifies the Church...out of love for Christ the bishop endures it all with great interior peace ..since he is withholding the precepts of the Church..out of charity...and his intellect and appetites strive to attach themselves to what is most beneficial for the soul and unity of the church..and this is to rest in the peace of Christ...

 ..one can continue for all the 14 stations of the cross and elucidate the parallels between Christ and his successor the good bishop of MEDJUGORJE...but I believe at this point the good reader is able to apprehend the gist of the nature of grievous offenses committed unto the character of the good bishop at MEDJUGORJE..... we only persist in crucifying Christ anew..through spiritual infamy directed at Christ's spiritual Son (the good bishop at MEDJUGORJE).....
 



 ....to avoid further embarassment out of Christian charity it would indeed be a kind gesture to ask forgiveness of the good bishop at MEDJUGORJE for past wrongs and to abide by his directives so as not to inflict any further collateral damage to the unity of the mystical body of Christ ...amen
