Abp. Viganò: Pagan modernity is preparing a scourge ‘far more disastrous’ than the Flood

    by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, LifeSite News:

    ‘Sacred Scripture and the Fathers teach us that the Ark is a type of the Holy Church, thanks to which the elect can save themselves from mankind’s communal shipwreck.’

    Yesterday Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò presented a sombre Sunday homily (below) in which he reflected on the “abyss of evil … into which we see the contemporary world sinking” and counsels Christians to find refuge from the coming “scourge,” one “far more disastrous than the ancient Flood,” in the Ark of Salvation, the Catholic Church. He warns against counterfeit arks, and compares those who promote the plans of the New World Order to those who danced “inebriated and carefree” on the Titanic. He suggest that Pope Francis is remiss in his duties, saying “The man who ought to be calling us to board the True Ark has also gotten on board this horrid transatlantic liner, and we see him along with the wicked toasting the mighty of the earth, the enemies of God.” Nevertheless, he reminds Christians that the Helmsman who holds “firmly” the rudder of the Church, the true Ark of Salvation, is Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

    VIRTUS IN INFIRMITATE PERFICITUR

    Homily of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò

    for Sexagesima Sunday

    The Lord saw how great the wickedness of men was on the earth

    and that every inner desire of their hearts was always nothing but evil

    Gen 6:5

    On Sexagesima Sunday we are drawing near to the time of penance and fasting in preparation for Easter. Already for a week the Alleluia has been silent in the liturgy, replaced in the Mass by the Tract. And on this Sunday that is quasi-penitential the Church – with the Readings of Matins – accompanies us in the consideration of sin which leads God to destroy the rebellious human race with the Flood, saving only the family of Noah.

    Sacred Scripture speaks of the wickedness of men: every inner desire of their hearts was always nothing but evil. It is hard to believe that humanity could have committed in the past the evil that we see it do today: in no ancient culture was the abyss of evil ever so deep as the one into which we see the contemporary world sinking. Massacres, violence, wars, perversions, thefts, robberies, slaughters, profanations, sacrileges committed not only by individual people but imposed through law by the heads of nations, exalted by the media, encouraged by teachers and magistrates, tolerated and even approved by priests. We ask ourselves if modern man does not merit punishments even worse than the flood, for the wickedness that inspires his every action against God, against his fellow human beings, against Creation; and in contemplating the apparent triumph of the mysterium iniquitatis, in seeing how widespread and deeply rooted evil is in our corrupt and apostate world, we ask ourselves how long the Divine Majesty can tolerate the abomination of men. We almost find it difficult to believe in the Lord’s promise: I will no longer curse the ground because of man, because every intention of the human heart is inclined to evil from youth; nor will I again strike every living being as I have done (Gen 8:21).

    What leaves us disoriented is not so much the silence in which we are abandoned to ourselves and our tribulations, so much as the fact that the impunity of present crimes and sins may be itself a punishment that is even more tremendous and severe than that which the Eternal Father could send us. Paganized modernity, plunged into barbarism, is preparing with its own hands a scourge that is far more disastrous than the ancient Flood, a much vaster destruction of the human race, in which it believes that it can sweep away from the face of earth not the wicked but rather the good: those who remain faithful to the Lord and to His holy law. And while the storm clouds by which they will be submerged gather, dark and threatening, our contemporaries deride those who are preparing their own spiritual Ark by seeking to save themselves and their loved ones; indeed, they do everything to prevent them from bringing it to completion.
