There has been no shortage of praise heaped on Martin Luther and his errors by the current Roman hierarchy, especially because 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Revolution. It should be obvious that this is something Catholics definitely should not celebrate.
The Protestant Revolution:
- Was a satanic attack against Christ and His Church,
- Led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Catholics in persecutions against the Church all throughout Europe,
- Paved the way for the composition and dissemination of the erroneous ideas of J.J. Rosseau, John Calvin, Maximilien Robespierre, the Freemasons, various Judaising sects, Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx, John Locke etc. ad nauseam.
The shattering of Catholic hegemony that once protected Europe and Western civilization from degeneracy and decay should never be celebrated, and especially not within any Catholic church, anywhere. Yet, here in the "Upside-Down", this is what we are seeing everywhere.
Ecumenism, sacrilege, and relativism have run rampant in the Church and the West in general, ever since the "Second Pentecost" of the Second Vatican Council. But not all have fallen under the heavy, opium-like spell that the "smoke of satan" (Pope Paul VI, 1972) brought into the Church. Indeed, there are still some Catholics in Europe who, armed with the truth, are standing up against these sacrilegious celebrations of Protestantism.
One group called "Civitas," a French Catholic Nationalist group seeking the restoration of the Catholic State, has been organizing protests against these outrages, and has been quite successful.
On October 31st, Civitas disrupted a celebration of the Protestant Revolution in the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, in Brussels. The 11 youths assembled at the front of the church, linking arms and praying the Rosary in reparation for the outrage being committed.
Civitas members were also handing out flyers saying:
“Our cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula is a Catholic edifice built by our fathers to be the House of God, for the celebration of the holy Mass, for the praise of God and of the saints. The occupation of our cathedral by the Protestants to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reform is therefore a profanation.”
“This terrible revolution was a great drama for Christian society and for the salvation of souls. And the Lutheran errors are still heresies today because the Truth is eternal.”
The Protestant "minister" leading the celebration was Steven Fuite of the United Protestant Church of Belgium. "Pastor" Fuite is a classical hard-leftist, homosexualist and revolutionary, touting the normal garbage about how "diversity is our strength." Fuite actually said the following about the differences between Protestants and Catholics:
“Our unity is placed essentially in respect for differences. Without the other who is different, who thinks differently, who acts differently, I don’t exist, I am nothing.”
When you hear the maxim "liberalism is a mental disorder," think of Steven Fuite.
According to LifeSiteNews:
Fuite told Le Soir that his church is a “truly democratic structure” that permits women and homosexuals to be ministers and blesses homosexual couples.
Can we give these kids a round of applause for standing up to this garbage?
This ecumenical abomination at St. Michael and St. Gudula is not the only event Civitas has disrupted. As a matter of fact, they've been quite busy.
A second such event took place at St. Irene Church in Lyon, France just this past week, wherein the demonstrators used the exact same tactics of simply praying the Rosary at the front of the church in an effort to make reparation for this offense against God.
This second event in Lyon was rife with irony, as the theme for the celebration of Protestantism was “from conflict to communion, together in hope.” It didn't seem to work out too well for them.
Alain Escada, President of Civitas, wrote of the event:
"Militants of the Movement of Catholic Youth of France and French Youth Civitas united to prevent an ecumenical celebration in St Irene Church in Lyon and to publicly rectify this offense to God and His Church.
"Cardinal Barbarin was part of this blasphemous circus organized by, among others, Protestant pastors. Militant Catholics could not allow them to get away with this scandalous event.”
In response to this Catholic Action against sacrilege, Régine Maire, former Delegate for Ecumenism in Lyon, said:
“It’s such a pity. It was supposed to be [a] time of peace and brotherhood in a parish context [...] And to involve the Virgin Mary like that is appalling. Our Protestant friends were dumbfounded and dismayed.”
Civitas has disrupted many more sacrilegious events, including a debate on “Otherness and encountering the other” organized by the Diocesan Service of Muslim Relations in the Church of the Trinity in Bordeaux, as well as an occasion wherein Rivon Krygier, the Rabbi of the Adath Shalom Masorti community, was invited by Cardinal André Vingt-Trois to speak at a Lenten service at Notre-Dame in Paris.
In this rising tide of Globalism, Marxism, liberalism, Protestantism, homosexualism and all kinds of other anti-Christ "isms," it's nice to see Catholic youth taking a stand for God and for their country. It's only a matter of time before truly Catholic Action comes to America, and pays a visit to Archbishop Bambera and his depraved "ministry" in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
