MEDJUGORJE UPDATE: SEER'S VIRGIN STATUE GLOWS...AS THE FACE OF MOSES???


MEDJUGORJE UPDATE: SEER'S VIRGIN STATUE GLOWS...AS THE FACE OF MOSES SHONE??


  ..indeed at MEDJUGORJE we have  a contentious spirituality at odds with the magisterium of the Church...

 ..in this theatre of the absurd where the sun spins..the clouds perambulate and metamorph into Holy visages..the air itself is purported to be electric and now the statues themselves glow as the face of Moses did after he encountered the place where God was in his contemplation...


 
...of course we have three spirits ..the spirit of the world..the spirit of the devil..& the spirit of God...indeed what the worldly spirit does and desires is contrary to God from the habit of sin in spite of itself through ignorance..however the devil apes, mocks and mimics God since the devil fell through the sin of desiring to be as God...and the Devil disunites  chiefly through malice and a turpitude for all things Holy....

 According to the Catholic Encyclopedia

 .....On the Devil’s sin....

St. Anselm's answer is that there need be no question of absolute equality; yet to will anything against the Divine will is to seek to have that independence which belongs to God alone, and in this respect to be equal to God. In the same sense St. Thomas (I:63:3) answers the question, whether the Devil desired to be "as God". If by this we mean equality with God, then the Devil could not desire it, since he knew this to be impossible, and he was not blinded by pasion or evil habit so as to choose that which is impossible, as may happen with men. And even if it were possible for a creature to become God, an angel could not desire this, since, by becoming equal with God he would cease to be an angel, and no creature can desire its own destruction or an essential change in its being.
 
 

These arguments are combated by Scotus (In II lib. Sent., dist. vi, Q. i.), who distinguishes between efficacious volition and the volition of complaisance, and maintains that by the latter act an angel could desire that which is impossible. In the same way he urges that, though a creature cannot directly will its own destruction, it can do this consequenter, i.e. it can will something from which this would follow.

..and so it follows that we see the devil tempts mankind through mimicry, mockery and aping of anything Holy since his disposition is objurately inclined to be as God in order to sufficiently register his angst and hatred on God and his beloved creatures....

 ..indeed as we see in Exodus 34:29-35  (Douay Rheims)




[29] And when Moses came down from the mount Sinai, he held the two tables of the testimony, and he knew not that his face was horned from the conversation of the Lord. [30] And Aaron and the children of Israel seeing the face of Moses horned, were afraid to come near.

[29] Horned: That is, shining, and sending forth rays of light like horns.

[31] And being called by him, they returned, both Aaron and the rulers of the congregation. And after that he spoke to them. [32] And all the children of Israel came to him: and he gave them in commandment all that he had heard of the Lord in mount Sinai. [33] And having done speaking, he put a veil upon his face. [34] But when he went in to the Lord, and spoke with him, he took it away until he came forth, and then he spoke to the children of Israel all things that had been commanded him. [35] And they saw that the face of Moses when he came out was horned, but he covered his face again, if at any time he spoke to them.

 

...so we see in MEDJUGORJE we have either through human artifice influenced by pride of place and cunning..or by preternatural intervention we have the devil aping God...indeed we cannot make an adequate edifying  parallel between the seers at MEDJUGORJE and MOSES...if we see that in the literal sense Moses through respect veiled his faced...in a moral sense he became humble after encountering in contemplation the place where God was..and in an anagogical mystical way one might say that the face of the soul of MOSES being his intellect which is the place where the eye of mind resides became illuminated with the truth of God and so shone as if enlightened...

..we see in MEDJUGORJE this is not occurring since the seers are not humble..they do not seek to submit themselves to the spiritual stewards of God (the local Ordinaries and Rome)...and so we see a mockery of all things good..a sign of infernal tampering....

..is one to believe that the seer at MEDJUGORJE is so Holy that by her presence the statue of the Virgin glows or through some other sort of misconjuctive device we are to believe without question betraying our faith to contrived circumstance....

..of course we are told by the proponents at this place that... a good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit and an evil tree cannot bring forth good fruit..yet this is a classic MEDJUGORJE tactic of taking scripture and employing it out of context...improper exegesis...

..if we see in the summa theological of Thomas Aquinas....

The tree in this context is to be understood as the will of the soul...since indeed a good tree can and may bring forth evil fruit..just as a good family can out of 4 children have one evil one and three good wholesome children let us read what follows...

...on the cause of evil..

Article 1. Whether good can be the cause of evil?

Objection 1. It would seem that good cannot be the cause of evil. For it is said  (Matthew 7:18): "A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit."...........
 

Reply to Objection 1. As Augustine says (Contra Julian. i): "The Lord calls an evil will the evil tree, and a good will a good tree." Now, a good will does not produce a morally bad act, since it is from the good will itself that a moral act is judged to be good. Nevertheless the movement itself of an evil will is caused by the rational creature, which is good; and thus good is the cause of evil.

 

..and so one sees that indeed a good can and does bring about evil in an incidental way...through inordinate desiring....so of course we see proponents of MEDJUGORJE using this scripture and it has indeed undermined their cause since the will of the seers is contrary to two local Bishops in good standing as well as to a Vatican decree that the supernaturality of the phenomenon cannot be ascertained...yet the seers arrogantly claim otherwise....through imperious holiness..the evil will of the seers cannot bring forth good fruit..yet the presence of the sacraments at this place can and indeed does bring forth good fruit and so we have contention...and confusion...let us all examine ourselves with a spirit of recollection ........amen...........
