“Aha! What about introducing some pagan worship of nature into my pseudo-Catholic Church?”
Present were “Archbishop” Diarmuid Martin, Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople and other leaders of “Christian” churches (naturally, only the Catholic Church is truly Christian. As the Catechism of St. Pius X reads:
3 Q. Who is a true Christian?
A. A true Christian is he who is baptised, who believes and professes the Christian Doctrine, and obeys the lawful pastors of the Church.).
According to the Knock website, the ceremony, held at 7.30 pm today, included “readings and reflections on Laudato Si’, with music from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons” (source: https://www.knockshrine.ie/world-day-care-creation/)
From reading this, don’t you get the feeling that something is missing? God, maybe?
Remember, we weren’t created to live the perfect life here and worship creation, but to prepare ourselves a place in Heaven for the greater glory of God. Nature has its place in the world, but it would be against our Faith – against the First Commandment – to deify it.
The Deharbe Catechism, Introduction:
2. Q: For what end did God create us?
A: God created us that we might know Him, love Him, and serve Him upon earth, and by so doing gain heaven.
And the Catechism of Pius X on the First Commandment:
2 Q. In the words of the First Commandment: Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me, what does God command us?
A. By the words of the First Commandment: Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me, He commands us to acknowledge, adore, love and serve Him alone as our Sovereign Lord.
God alone can be worshipped; worshipping creation is pagan. But this is what the church of Vatican II is teaching, promulgating and encouraging!
St. Pius X, pray for us.
