We are living in exceptional times and in circumstances never before witnessed in history. With the introduction of control measures implemented following the appearance of COVID-19, people are worried and do not know what the future holds. Will one still have a job? Will there be a “second wave”? And this simple question is on many minds: Will we be able to return to a normal life, as it was before COVID-19?
It seems, for many, the measures taken have not been about saving lives but rather about ushering in a New World Order.
“We have reason to believe, on the basis of official data on the incidence of the epidemic as related to the number of deaths, that there are powers interested in creating panic among the world’s population with the sole aim of permanently imposing unacceptable forms of restriction on freedoms, of controlling people and of tracking their movements. The imposition of these illiberal measures is a disturbing prelude to the realization of a world government beyond all control”.
We are enduring emergency conditions because governments have told us that we are at war with the coronavirus. We must also accept we are engaged in a spiritual war where the salvation of souls is at stake.
Despite everything troubling occurring in the world today, we must keep hope and persevere in faith in Jesus Christ, in His Church and teachings because we can be assured He will never leave us. We only have to ask for His help, through prayer and by partaking in the sacraments. In Psalm 57, we are reassured we can trust Him: “In the shadow of your wings I take refuge, until the destruction is past.”
Just before He died on the cross, Jesus gave to each one of us His Mother, who then became Mother of all Christians. Mary continues to intercede for us with her Son, because she wants to lead us to Him. She warns us, in each of her apparitions over the centuries, of the perils which threaten the salvation of our souls.
The Church and the world must endure a purification. One can read in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (n. 677):
“The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in His death and Resurrection.”
However, if we stand with Christ and His holy Mother we have nothing to fear.
The lockdowns imposed on the poorer developing nations means loss of incomes for already struggling populations who will not receive any financial relief from their governments. This amounts to deaths in the short term. These people, too, have a soul that requires salvation, but before talking to them about matters of the spirit the priority is to make sure they don’t starve. This misery is not limited to underdeveloped nations but also to richer countries, where millions of jobs are disappearing following the shutdowns of economies and forced isolation.
This is where we see the importance of monetary reform to guarantee economic security for everyone (see page 12). Money must be restored to its rightful role as a symbol and distributed to all in the form of a Dividend so that everyone can meet their basic earthly needs.
Let us ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to “drive the infernal dragon from spirits and institutions and to direct our activities toward the establishment of an earthly order in which the state of grace is made easy for all men”.
