LIBERTY -- The Much Confused Term
Here is a nugget from Father Edward Leen as found in The Church Before
Pilate, on page 38:
?On the lips of heretics and on the lips of those
who are their more or less close followers, words completely change their
What amazes me no end is the life style of the hippie generation.
They chafe under the demand that they conform to right order. They
say that the order of their elders was made by their elders - independent
of God and right reason. They claim the right to make their own code
of conduct no matter what that may be. In the end each one is forced
to live in their new and distorted life style, and settle into complete
degradation. Rightly they are little more than human garbage.
Strange but true, it all starts with a false notion of liberty, also called
?Liberty is their constant cry. It does
not mean, as it should mean, the unimpeded opportunity - the physical
and moral power for each man to do what he may and should do. In
theory, for the heresiarchs, human liberty means the power for each man
to do what he likes to do. In practice, it means for those who have
been lured on by this mirage of liberty, the power to do only what the
heresiarchs will them to do. Liberty (the changed meaning) turns
out to be a tyranny which enslaves a man, body and soul.?
I should tell you what I observed on a video given on Mother Angelica?s
program. In order to make money the Vatican of the Novus Ordo sold
the rights to the pictures of the Vatican to a Japanese film company.
The company photographed the pictures in the Vatican just as they were
- dusty and all that. Then they renovated the pictures in the Sisteen
Chapel (which I saw). Over the years many of Michaelangelo nude pictures
were covered with painted on shalls and loincloths. In the interest
of art and making money the Japanese had all those shalls and loin clothes
removed to the bare nudity as Michaelangelo drew them.
Caviat - The Vatican & Its "Art"
We now have a caviat on any videos of the Vatican. In fact, the
powers that be should have never permitted Michaelangelo to put that nude
art in the most sacred places (or any place) of the Vatican - the center
of the Catholic Church. It is not likely that our true Pope will
ever get possession of the Vatican, but if he does, he will have some house
cleaning to do - lest he continue the four hundred years of scandal to
the shame of one and all.
