Our Blessed Mother In The Divine Plan

The Mother of the Redeemer has a precise place in the plan of salvation, for “when the time had fully come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Gal. 4:4-6) (Redemptoris Mater, JPII, No. 1).

Today on X, formerly known as twitter, I read part of a thread between a woman defending the child in the womb, and those who attacked her. The back and forth was exhausting and I closed the app.

A memo from the FBI was released by former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin titled, “Interest of Radically or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology.” The memo directly sights a defamatory study conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on the subject “Radical Traditional Catholicism.” It seems that these Catholic radicals who believe in traditional marriage and family will not be tolerated.

Bishop Strickland, formerly the Bishop of Tyler, Texas, provided Lifesite News with this statement about the memo: “Sadly, the experience of Mark Houck (a father of seven arrested for praying outside an abortion clinic) provides evidence that this type of surveillance is not beyond the realm of possibility. Yes, committed Catholics will defend the unborn and others who are helpless, but attacks of violent aggression are antithetical to what it means to be a radically committed traditional Catholic. Let us pray for all in positions of authority and especially for those in law enforcement.”

Bishop Strickland has since been removed as the Shepherd of the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas by Pope Francis. The Vatican has not divulged the reasons behind his removal. But for all the talk about dialogue and listening to the spirit coming from the Synod of Synodality it is clear that voices such as Bishop Strickland, Cardinal Raymond Burke and others will not be tolerated.

The times we are living in are dark. Yet we are people of the light, children of God. We must find our voice and have the courage to freely speak the Truth and choose the Good. Then God will send the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’
