Ireland facing God's wrath?

Sermon by Monsignor Patrick Perez

My dear faithful, it is a very sad week. For those of you who have not heard what happened in Ireland, they had a protection in their constitution which defended the unborn. In the old days they figured this was their safeguard against abortion ever coming into Ireland. Well, they had a referendum and decided by two-thirds majority to change their constitution to allow for the murdering of babies in that formerly Catholic country.

Since this news I’ve been so heartbroken and so furious at the same time. I know this doesn’t amount to much of a sermon but I’ve been so preoccupied with this, I can hardly think of anything else. First of all, heartbroken because I lived in Ireland for five years and I saw in front of my eyes their darned clergy apologizing for the existence and the history of the Church. There’s a common myth amongst the Irish now that the Catholic Church kept them in ignorance and kept them from advancing in the world for many centuries. And the priests were apologizing for keeping them ignorant and for keeping them from progressing into the modern world, when what they were doing was keeping them Catholic at the time.

I saw their clergy and their worthless bishops, the worthless clergy and worthless bishops destroying their Church and I am furious at them. I’m furious at the history of evil and worthless popes that we’ve had since Pius XII. These popes, these modernist so and sos have led the people of Ireland and of the world into the wilderness and there they have starved them to death. And that is what we’ve seen in front of our eyes. If I could have the pope here at this moment I would berate him for the evil, worthless, useless pope that he is, for destroying the Faith.

You know, this referendum happened: where was the pope? Where were the bishops? The pope plans for a visit -after- the referendum, to Ireland. He should have been there before. Had he been a pope like the popes of old, he would have said, I will place your country under interdict if you vote to change your constitution to allow for the killing of babies. That’s what a real pope would do who had guts. These guys have no faith, they have no guts, and they have no ability to lead the Church. They don’t believe in anything but their own modernist heresies and I’m sick to death. Why am I sick to death? You say, well, we have abortion in this country. Ireland was a Catholic(!) country fifty years ago; unquestionably. When I lived in Ireland there were so many pious and good and holy people who thankfully are dead now, thankfully, because they would have died of heartbreak seeing what has happened to their country.

The only age group, not surprisingly, who voted not to change the constitution to kill babies was the 65 and older group because they had some remnants of the Faith that were left to them when their priests and their bishops were Catholic. There’s nothing left. Our Lady of La Salette refers to the annihilation of nations. Ireland is annihilated; Ireland is no more, Ireland has reverted to a land of paganism that, like the Canaanites of old, will soon be murdering their own babies and they are joyful about it! I saw on the internet some of the news reports showing the people dancing in the streets over this wonderful liberation, women with signs, “At last we can do what we want to with our bodies and they’re not telling us anymore”.

Well, there is reason to be heartbroken. I lived for five years there and I can tell you I saw the last light of the sun as it disappeared over the hills. There is nothing left there (Father brought to tears). In 1907, Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson wrote a novel called The Lord of the World. Fascinating book, everybody should read it. It’s a future science fiction dystopia about the antichrist in the Church, and in it in 1907 even then Robert Hugh Benson could not have imagined that Ireland would abandon the faith. So for the whole world Ireland was this one hold-out of Catholicism in the entire globe and look at it now. Look at it now.

So my dear faithful I know by faith that I should accept this as the chastisement of the good God and I’m not angry at God. I’m angry at our worthless, despicable hierarchy and I tell you solemnly you had better pray for our place here and you’d better support us and beg God to spare our little island here because the rest of it is literally going to hell, literally going to hell.

I had a sermon prepared about the Holy Trinity but I’ve been so preoccupied and furious and heartbroken by this turn of events, I couldn’t even do it, I couldn’t think of anything else. But I did want to leave you with one thought because the Trinity is so offended by this. I don’t know if it’s my imagination but I have this premonition that God’s justice will be swift and sure to Ireland. I don’t have anything to go on; I kept on thinking of the three days of darkness and things that might happen but it would certainly be a witness to the world.

  1. Thank you. that was beautifully written and really sad. We were heartbroken too. I always thought that if we could go somewhere to retire it would be there. We thought the faith was preserved. Now, we realize it is a thing of the past. Really, really sad.
