[Catholic Caucus] Catholic’ Ireland Falls Into the Sea
The Remnant Newspaper ^ | May 26, 2018 | James Bogle

Ladies and gentlemen,

It looks as if the Republic of Ireland has – very decisively – decided to vote down the 8th Amendment and so withdrawn protection from the most vulnerable of all Irish citizens – the unborn.

Ireland has, after holding out for many years, finally decided to join the mainland European rush to self-immolation.

What is worse is that, in most countries, abortion was imposed by the judicial and/or legislative elite whereas Ireland’s own people have chosen this route, themselves, by referendum.

It is tempting to say “I told you so – this is the end result of their infernal rebellion, murderous civil war and fatuous rewarding of rebels and murderers with government office” but that is only part of the story and is too simplistic. I am no fan of the way the rebels sapped the spirit of the Irish people but the abortion calamity cannot be blamed solely upon that.

The greater culprit, alas, is the post-Vatican II dispensation which has so sapped the vitals of the Catholic Church. Having sown the wind, we are now reaping the whirlwind.

Everywhere, we are seeing a devastated vineyard, as the late Professor Dietrich von Hildebrand so aptly put it.

For those who have been sitting on the fence for the last 50 years, now is the time to come off the fence and admit that the much-trumpeted “renewal” promised by the champions of the New Church has been a disastrous failure.

The Church will not be renewed until it heeds the words of St Pius X in his encyclical, Notre Charge Apostolique – “Our Apostolic Mandate” - of 1910 to the French Bishops, in which the saintly Pontiff said this:

“…all that is needed is to take up again, with the help of the true workers for a social restoration, the organisms which the [French] Revolution shattered, and to adapt them, in the same Christian spirit that inspired them, to the new environment arising from the material development of today’s society. Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.” [emphasis added]

Instead, Church and Society are heading rapidly in the opposite direction.

Now is the time for all good Catholics to admit that the experiment is over. It was a total failure. We must now set about restoring the broken edifice of Christianity. And, I suggest, the place to start is with the liturgy – the official prayer of the Church, originating in the Jewish Temple worship, Christianised by Christ Himself at the Last Supper, and fashioned by the Holy Spirit diachronically over the centuries, which should unite all Catholics, whether of the Roman or another rite, together. Without a widespread return to the ancient liturgy of the Roman rite, it is clearer than ever that the Church in the West will not recover its strength.

And let us pray for Ireland and its people.

Oremus pro invicem,

James Bogle, President FIUV 2013-2015

Looks like we will have to find that smaller, purer Church that Pope Benedict talked about. The bulk is apostatising rapidly.

Nick Loeb and John Voight are producing a movie about the conspiracy which has resulted in the baby killing fields in our country and now, Ireland. The news of this movie is being suppressed, according to Nick Loeb, so that people will not know about it. It seems that fake news has been around for a long time and, ultimately will be the end of us. From my experience, the homosexuals and lesbians are most strident about abortion and I wonder why that would be. Is it because babies are the product of heterosexual love and they feel the some kind of inequality exists in that? Strange. If you are a person who believes that the crime of abortion is the original tool of evil which will drive a stake into the heart of civilization and open the floodgates to other kinds of “legalized murder,” then go here for news about this movie which, if widely seen might begin to make a difference in how abortion is viewed.

You’ve probably got a point there - homosexual relationships are inherently lifeless, so they want to render heterosexual relationships lifeless also.

The ultimate “sour grapes”.

With the so-called “rights” to contraception, abortion, and buggery are the powers to terminate society, and with it, Western Civilization.

Adios. We had a good run. Enjoy the Caliphate.

The homosexuals are the abusers not the priests...

...those perverts USED the church for their own perversions.

Abortion and homosexuality are the fruits from abandoning God and adhering to His Word.

Pro-gay and pro-abortion are both about hating what is good in life and killing the future.

No, 66.4% voted to strip the human rights of their own children and expose them to legal extermination.

I love the UCD (University College Dublin) Choral Scholars´ gloriously-voiced videos on YouTube. I learned they (or the constituency where they vote) went even more overwhelmingly Pro Culture of Death than the rest of the country.

I find I can´t listen to them anymore without crying.

On May 25, 2018, Catholic Ireland ceased to exist.
