Christus Resurréxit! Resurréxit Vere! Just a reminder that tomorrow Easter Saturday April 23, there will be an 8am Respect Life Latin Mass at St. Ann parish, followed by prayers at Planned Parenthood (700 S. Torrence Street, Charlotte), or for those unable to travel, a Holy Hour of Reparation in the church will be offered after Mass.
Also today, Friday April 22 is the day when pagans celebrate “Earth day” and engage in bizarre rituals trying to “save” the Earth from pollution or even mankind itself. What these pagans fail to understand is the Church’s traditional doctrine of creation and the effect original sin had on the earth, which it should be noted was created in six literal 24-hour days, less than 10,000 years ago, in a state of perfection, according to the consensus of the early Church fathers. After Adam and Eve committed the original sin, death and deformity entered the world for the first time. Furthermore around 4,000 years ago a global worldwide cataclysm or flood (Genesis 6:17) occurred wiping out that world and its inhabitants, save for 8 people and the creatures on the Ark. This supernatural disaster occurred as a direct result of the sins and wickedness of men (Genesis 6:5-7) – the worst type of pollution in the universe.
The best way to care for creation is to learn the Church’s traditional doctrine on creation and the impact of sin upon creation. Several years ago, the CLMC was one of the co-sponsors of the Evolution & The Culture of Death conference which presented the Church’s teaching on creation, which counters the secular evolutionary theory which forms the foundation for the culture of death including population control, eugenics, and abortion. If you haven’t seen the conference, or its been a while, we share the link here:

Lastly, we close with a quote from Our Lady of Akita, Japan in 1973, where she references Noe’s flood and draws the connection between sin and the created world.
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.” – Our Lady of Akita to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa, October 13, 1973 (approved apparition by the local ordinary)
