WMOF 2018: As Empty as Balthasar's Hell?!!!

Westminster's Cardinal Vincent Nichols, speaks to the, erm, crowds at the Parish...sorry!...World... Meeting of Families in Dublin!

Whilst perusing Gloria TV News a little while ago, I spotted this remarkable photograph beneath a headline which reads, Pro-Gay World Meeting of Families - No Interest Among Catholics. 

The picture shows Westminster's Cardinal Vincent Nichols, who is at the World Meeting of Families in Dublin to deliver a keynote speech on the theme of, ahem, Support and Preparation for Marriage in the Light of Amoris Laetitia.

Because of all the heterodox subversions being peddled at the World Meeting of Families, we've been particularly concerned about how this theme of marriage preparation and Amoris Laetitia might go. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have lost sleep over all of this.

That is because, and if you've been reading this blog long enough you will already know, Torch of The Faith was set up, in no small part, to offer marriage preparation rooted in the true, orthodox teachings of the Church regarding faith in Christ, cohabitation, contraception, IVF, divorce, re-''marriage'' and homosexuality.

As we had discovered during preparation for our own marriage in 2002, orthodox Catholics could experience bullying and mockery when they tried to resist the dissent and heretical views which were too often being pushed on young engaged couples, during their compulsory marriage preparation programmes in England. Certainly, that is what happened to us.

Quite simply, we wanted young Catholic couples to receive the true and beautiful teachings of the Church for the good of their souls, their families and for the good of society. When we could not get anywhere through official channels, we started our own apostolate.

Perhaps, if the small numbers in the above photograph are anything to go by, then we need not have been so worried this week...

To be honest, I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read a comment beneath the picture at Gloria TV, which jested that most of those present had been bussed in anyway!

I don't know, perhaps the organisers of the World Meeting of Families might need to get Bishop Robert Barron to draw on Balthasar's depiction of Hell to develop them a specific theology for the event...

You know, something along the lines of: The World Meeting of Families; yes, we're told it does exist, but probably there isn't anybody there!

Do you know, I don't think I've laughed so much since the Archdiocese of Liverpool had to cancel its 2015 conference exploring the continuing impact of the teaching of the Second Vatican Council in the life and mission of the Church, because of a lack of numbers!

Oh, the poetic irony.

Then again, it isn't really funny to see the Church being emptied by heretical teachers or teachings, because the ongoing spread of ''Spirit of Vatican II'' Modernism will only make sure that Hell isn't anything like empty...

And Our Lady of Fatima warned us, through the little seers, that most souls go to Hell because of the sins of the flesh.

It also reminds me of the HLI founder Fr. Paul Marx's discerning line that Modernists were ''spiritually contracepting'' themselves out of existence.

Then again, I'm sure we all needed a bit of a laugh at this testing time.

Perhaps we should have sent the family along to WMOF after all, if only to double the numbers...

Sorry, I just couldn't resist that!
