"Inside God’s covert rescue operation"

The Denver Catholic reported:

 Satan knew the power and glory of God. He saw that men and women were destined to receive a share of that glory and he rebelled. So, aware of God’s power, the devil waited to see how he would respond to the fall of Adam and Eve, looking for an impressive rescue plan. Instead, God launched a secret counter assault. He came as a humble and defenseless child, born in a stable, in poverty, to the little-known Mary and Joseph.

It might seem like a stretch to talk about Jesus’ life and death in terms of waging battle, but this was not a strange idea for the early Church Fathers. Today we think of Jesus’ death on the cross as him showing us the love of the Father or as making atonement for our sins, but in the first centuries of the Church, Jesus’ mission was described as him going to war to save us. 

St. Ephrem the Syrian described it in this way:

“Death had its own way when Our Lord went out from Jerusalem carrying his cross; but when, by a loud cry from that cross, he summoned the dead from the underworld, death was powerless to prevent it.

Death slew him by means of the body which he had assumed, but that same body proved to be the weapon with which he conquered death.  Concealed beneath the cloak of his manhood, his godhead engaged death in combat; but in slaying Our Lord, death itself was slain.  It was able to kill natural life but was itself killed by the life that is above the nature of man.” [https://denvercatholic.org/inside-gods-covert-rescue-operation/]

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."
