Barbarians at the
(Or the attack against marriage and the family)
By ABRAHAM V. LLERA

On Feburary 16, 2008,
Cardinal Carlo Caffara, Archbishop of Bologna, after a Mass celebrated
at the tomb of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, granted an interview to Tele
Radio Padre Pio.
In that interview, Caffara
revealed that Sister Lucy of Fatima fame told him that the final
battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage
and the family.
Sister Lucia did not specify
when this final battle will take place, but perhaps the vision Pope
Leo XIII had on October 3, 1884 may be related. Just after celebrating
Holy Mass on that day, Pope Leo XIII collapsed as if dead. After he
was revived, he recounted a vision of Satan approaching the throne of
God, boasting he will destroy the Church if given the chance to.
The Lord reminded Satan that
his Church is invincible. Satan then replied, “Grant me one century
and more power of those who will serve me, and I will destroy it.” Our
Lord granted him 100 years.
The Lord then allowed the
Pope a vision of the events of the 20th century: wars, immorality,
genocide, and apostasy on a large scale. Alarmed by the spine-chilling
vision, the Pope sat down and wrote the prayer to St. Michael, the
same prayer the faithful pray today in times of distress.
Many believe that we are now
in the midst of those 100 years.
Before the Irish people
voted on May 22, 2015 to allow same-sex unions, 20 countries have
already embraced same-sex unions either by legislation or via court
decisions. Ireland was the first to do it by popular vote. These 20
countries are: The Netherlands (2000); Belgium (2003); Canada (2005);
Spain (2005); South Africa (2006); Norway (2009); Sweden (2009);
Argentina (2010); Iceland (2010); Portugal (2010); Denmark (2012);
Brazil (2013); England and Wales (2013); France (2013); New Zealand
(2013); Uruguay (2013); Luxembourg (2014); Scotland (2014); Finland:
(signed 2015, effective 2017).
Then on June 26, 2015,
SCOTUS – The U.S. Supreme Court – voted 5-4 making same-sex unions
legal in all United states.
Why did same-sex unions
suddenly crop up in our discussions? Because same-sex unions is the
weapon the Devil is using to destroy marriage and the family. By
rejecting the God-mandated man-woman dichotomy of marriage, and by
replacing it with the sterile man-man or woman-woman abomination, the
Devil hopes to strike right at the heart of God’s plan for mankind and
for all of Creation.
There’s only one reason why
God instituted marriage: procreation. Malachi 2:15 is very clear: God
instituted marriage so that godly offspring may result. But why would
God want babies to be born? God has only one reason: to fill heaven
with human beings. Now why would God do that? Because God wants us to
share eternal happiness with him.
But, then, the Devil,
forever malevolent and desiring nothing but the fall of man, will not
have anything of that. That’s why he’d do everything he can to lead us
away from our eternal destiny. His weapon of choice: same-sex unions,
the very thing we see unfolding before our very own eyes today.
