O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

Come O Burning Sun!

During the Easter Season I'll be bringing you gems from St. Faustina's Diary, after reading it for Lent.
Diary of St. Faustina, 1487
It is because you are not of this world that the world hates you. First it persecuted Me. Persecution is a sign that you are following in My footsteps faithfully.

The devil is the ruler of this world. He sets up his own system of doing things is direct contradiction to God. God establishes marriage as the union of one man and one woman who want to give themselves to each other in a complete self sacrifice because they a grace of the Holy Ghost, that Burning Sun of Love, the vocation to the married state, hit them like a ton of bricks and now they love each other with a sacrificial love, which serves as a nest for conceiving and raising children later after they get married. The whole thing is a reflection of Christ's marriage to the Church. The vocation to marriage is no more than a vocation to imitate Christ's union with the Church and His great love for Her. The devil responds by contradicting each and every one of those things. The devil says that marriage can be either heterosexual or homosexual, that love is not a sacrificial bond created by the Holy Ghost but a mutual respect for each other as equals created by the two partners themselves, and that you don't need to be married to have children (so long as your responsible-and in the devil's book having an abortion is considered being responsible) or even have sex because to the devil, sex isn't a giving of self to procreate children, it's a display of affection-like kissing only far greater. The Holy Marriage of Christ the Nymphios (Bridegroom) and the Church is dismissed as completely unrelated. (Btw, Ecce Homo Sunday is tomorrow, so this serves as a good vigil and preparation for the Feast of the Nymphios.)

So this is our choice: either defend marriage as God designed it (fighting sodomy is only the beginning in defending marriage) or tolerate and accept the devil's notion of marriage. Since the world is the kingdom of Satan, the world will hate us for trying to stop them from living their life their way according to their "rights" to live their way without God and without you. They hate you if you do not tolerate and accept their lives as they have established them. They hate God because God wants them to live according to His own system and not their own. God wants them to reject their lifestyle entirely and follow Him alone. They want to live their own life their own way, so they hate God because of what He asks of them. Since those of us faithful to God do nothing besides repeat what God says in direct contradiction to the world, they hate us the same way they hate God and for the very same reason. They yell at us and say we are delusional. They tell us that we are trying to force some sort of fantasy on others who have nothing to do with us. They tell us that we are obsessed. They tell us we are full of jealousy and hatred. If this is wrong, I don't want to be right, because this is no more than fidelity to God and what He has revealed. If God is for you, who can be against you? (cf. Rom. 8). Spera in Deo, quoniam adhuc confitebor illi: salutari vultus mei, et Deus meus. Hope in God, for I shall praise Him still: the savior of my face, and my God. We have to choose sides: either stay with God or stay with the world. The world is the devil's kingdom and the devil set it up a certain way purposefully to oppose God. We cannot be on both sides. We cannot support God and earth or even reconcile the two. It's one or the other. Either you accept God or you don't. Anything else is infidelity and hypocrisy.

Come Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Come Creator, Nymphios, and Burning Sun. I adore You for You are God. Set us on fire. Burn everything that is not in accord with Your will and purify what is good. Inflame our love and compunction. Draw us together into the life you compose for us. Mater Misericordiae, guard us with your mantle and give us to eat from that sweet Honeycomb, the Bread from Heaven.
