The Devil is in the Details

Harvard, I weep for you. 

Actually, I weep for all of our country and our world, but Harvard, today you get the most of these tears. I am offering up the lovely and wonderful gastro-intestinal virus I have been suffering through for your penance.

 “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

Harvard, you’re about to find out how true that is. Satanists doing this for a joke? You’re about to find out that Satan is no joke.

But what about us Catholics? Well, they said they won’t use a consecrated host, the actual body of Christ. Or will they? Let’s not kid ourselves, if we’ve saved the Body of Christ, we’ve won a battle, but not the war. The Devil, as they say, is in the details. Satan uses confusion to muck us around and the chaos threatens to cause a severe sin of indifference here. Pay attention to the details, of course, but don’t lose sight of the greater wrong being allowed to happen in the name of academic freedom. We’re human, Satan knows that details distract us, but he doesn’t much care if we’re considering this a joke. He knows it’s not.

Are you with me Disco Stu? This is serious. Dead serious. And if you haven’t prayed about it, start. Now.

Not Catholic, think it doesn’t effect you? Well, it does, Satan is using these so-called “wackos” to spread his chaos and confusion to create a great sense of apathy in our land. Apathy that will allow Satanic prayer at town hall meetings and Satanic statues in government buildings.  It’s not so bad? Really? Satan was CAST INTO HELL. HELL. And if you think it’s okay to just ignore these so-called “antics” you’ve played right into his hand.

Remember Martin Niemöller? “…they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–Because I was not a Jew.” Well, why would Satan come first for the Catholics? Look around you. He hasn’t come for us first. We are the prize. He’s come for us now because too many have chosen not speak out already. True, he’s always been coming for us, but he sees now is his time. He sees Catholics screaming about the Pope and fighting about Latin Mass vs Novus Ordo and why this baby was baptized and on and on and on. He sees us fighting each other, so that he doesn’t have to do it. And some of us, well some of us just don’t care. We’re so focused on every minor detail, we haven’t stopped to see that it’s US. WE’RE doing Satan’s work for him. And yes, I weep for US too. Everyone of us baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit who’ve forgotten God. We’ve stopped living in covenant with Him. We’re too busy for confession and too tired for the Eucharist. We’ve forgotten Screwtape’s advice to Wormwood about getting souls to hell by using many small sins not big ones like murder. The devil is in these details. And it took a Black Mass to wake us up to this reality. May God have mercy on all of us.

Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all wicked spirits, who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.

  1. Wow!!!!! I hadn’t heard this yet, and I am floored. Absolutely floored. Why would anyone even think about doing such a thing? And yes, those of us from other Christian denominations do care about such things and find them as offensive as Catholics do. Satan is real and people playing around with that kind of stuff are looking for trouble.

    I firmly believe the day is coming, or may even be already here, when all Christians will need to support each other. There is, even now, here in the United States, an atmosphere of ridicule and minimalization towards those of us who follow Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

    Thank you for a very thought provoking post.


    • Thank you Nancy for your charity and solidarity. I’ve had a few non-Catholic Christians on facebook, twitter etc make light of this and say, basically,
      “not Catholic! Not our problem!” I truly appreciate and love all my brothers and sisters in Christ no matter where they worship and I very much appreciate your support and the support of those who are standing up and saying, unequivocally, this is wrong.
