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
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
