Despite her own misgivings with her Catholic faith and even among the women who followed her and discredited her as the founder of her own women’s liberation movement, Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) rightly said, “Truth is the only safe ground to stand on.” Consequently, as a fallen-away catholic, she lost sight of Truth. She echoed instead, what Karl Marx (1818-1883) championed, “You will dress as men, leave your home, and enter the worker’s paradise.” Nevertheless, Dear Reader, the truly Liberated Woman lovingly recites the Apostle’s Creed, daily!
Dear Reader, the truly Liberated Woman does not go on extravagant vacations or engage in exercise programs; the truly liberated woman journeys to exotic beaches to comb for seashells and to snorkel the coral reefs. She solves the world’s problems by walking on pilgrimages around the globe to seek enlightenment from the Holy Spirit.
The truly Liberated Woman runs or jogs cross-country, not along the busy smog infested highways, but by the sea shore, and the opened fields, and where the hills are alive with the sound of music! The truly Liberated Woman lives the parable of Jesus, where the birds in the air and the flowers in the fields have not gone unnoticed! She is akin to a fluttering yellow butterfly!
When The truly Liberated Woman discerns her vocation, through ardent prayer, receiving the Holy Sacrament of Penance and the Holy Eucharist, and her spiritual Catholic director, she perseveres as if nothing else matters. If the truly Liberated Woman marries, then she becomes the queen of her castle, both body and home. She freely reigns with Truth, under her feet, so to speak! Her spouse is a perfect partner. She has reigned over her engagement with him with kindness, teamwork, and fun!
Her good husband works hard, he is trustworthy, and he willing loves her so, so much! The truly Liberated Woman has enraptured his heart; till death do they part! The truly Liberated Woman is trully smitten with him!
The truly Liberated Woman has no boss, she wears very little or no make-up, and she dresses as though the wind is forever in her wake. Sometimes, the truly Liberated Woman wears shoes on special occasions, but most times her measured steps are unshod or in sandals. The truly Liberated Woman seldom eats fast food. Her meals are mostly thoughtful, delicious, and fun!
The truly Liberated Woman never rushes to drop-off her children to school or daycare in order to arrive at her job, the worker’s paradise, or to the closeted-gym on time. She may even home school her children. Her realm is her home, and her business is her family. She sings lullabies, aloud! To bide her time in loving contemplation, she may even sew, knit, or crochet.
The truly Liberated Woman has a coffee break whenever she chooses. She naps. She sings. She dances. She has etched the sonnet of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861), “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . .” on her soul! Her daily schedule is set, but never in stone; The truly Liberated Woman alters her daily routine at her whim. Saturdays are fun-days, and Sundays are Godly! Every day, she offers all her pain, joys, works, and sufferings of each day to her Beloved Jesus!
The truly Liberated Woman plays hide-n-seek, hopscotch, skips rope, and reads bedtime stories. Her graceful heart melts her little children. They run to her in pain and joy. She uses buttercups as a barometer for whether one likes peanut butter. She makes dinner-dates with her husband at every opportunity when she desires. She knows the most competent babysitters in town. The truly Liberated Woman and her children know the neighborhood like the back of their hands. The baby carriage is weather-beaten and threadbare!
The truly Liberated Woman teaches her precious children how to checkmate, the rules of scrabble, and the intricacies of riding a bike. Her husband is captivated by her cheerfulness and wonder-filled smile. She is honest to the bone. Every fiber of her being is about the Truth, and who He is! She may even solve the Sunday crossword puzzles in one-sitting. She laughs at some of the colored-comics. She draws and she colors in the coloring book! Her favorite shades of nature are sky-blue, luscious-green, and sunglow-yellow!
Daily Mass is not a novelty to her; she loves Jesus and Mary with all her heart, with all her mind, with all her soul, and with all her strength. Her family’s daily Rosary-beads have signs of abrasion. Her children love Jesus and Mary! Her husband does too! The spirit of St. Nicholas is ever-present beyond the twelve days of Christmas.
The truly Liberated Woman is as shrewd as a serpent and as innocent as a dove. She understands the hypocrisy of this pretended modern women’s liberation movement. The truly Liberated Woman is horrified by their advocacy of abortion and their ostensible position on family planning. The truly Liberated Woman is a sincere defender of the natural family planning that is professed by Catholic Teachings!
She recognizes the evil of birth-control pills (BCPs) that increase the body’s level of free radicals, harmful by-products, that contributes to heart disease and accelerate-aging. In addition, they cause nervous system disorder and increase the potential for horrible diseases. BCPs are so unnatural and so profane!
The truly Liberated Woman is well read on the corruption to the body that intrauterine devices (IUDs) cause. For instance, they propagate both cancerous and benign growths, ovarian cysts, migraine headaches, bi-polar disorders, and even discoloration of the face. She knows that, for some unmysterious (sic) reason, once inserted the IUD tries to expel itself from the woman’s body. IUDs are so bizarre and so abusive!
Her children understand that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. She whistles while she works. She places a prodigious emphasis on her children’s creed, rather then which college they will attend. She is nobody’s fool. She visits the sick and the dying, and she feeds the hungry. Catholic Dogma makes perfect sense to the truly Liberated Woman!
Music is always in her air! The Easter Season is more about the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Her Jesus, than sales and discounts at the mall. Each time a child colors an egg, it is a magical moment! Bunnies, kitty-cats, and puppy-dogs are some of her favorite things! The truly Liberated Woman may be college educated, even having earned a master’s or doctor’s degree, but that is not a requirement.
Following along, Dear Reader, through the Sacred Teachings of the Catholic Church, the truly Liberated Woman knows, without an inkling of a doubt, that Mary came to Fatima in 1917 to save our souls. Our Lady came, especially, for us living in the Church, today! Our Blessed Mother sees how our souls are in danger; that is, in a grave-danger. Mary does not remain silent!
The truly Liberated Woman sees the world moving further and further from the Holy Cross of Jesus. Stupidstitious-atheism (sic) is the fastest growing religion in America and around the entire planet. Our titular democracies are doing just what the malicious-communists did at the point of a gun barrel; outlaw public displays of Christians, discredit public-prayer, and propagate the demonic-lie that there is no Truth, except, of course, that it is true, that there is no Truth. Anyway, Dear Reader, G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) rightly corrected the senseless Marx and Stanton’s newfound evil-fidelity, when he stated, “If there were no God, (then) there would be no atheist!”
Continuing, Dear Reader, in 1946, Servant of God, Sister Lucia of Fatima (1907-2005), a Carmelite nun, again echoed the Message of Fatima to a Catholic historian, “What our Lady wants is that the Pope with all the bishops in the world shall consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, (then) She will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, (then) the errors of Russia will spread through every country on Earth.”
In that rare interview, a Catholic historian William Thomas Walsh (1891-1949) asked Sister Lucia, a truly Liberated Woman, if that meant that every country would be overcome by communism. Sister Lucia replied, “Yes!” To be positive about her answer, Mr. Walsh inquired further, “Does, this mean the United States of America too?” and with deliberate emphasis, Sister Lucia, said, “Yes!” Dear Reader, Karl Marx pronounced that, “The very ‘idea’ of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed!”
Dear Reader, On October 23, 2012, the good Father Nicholas Gruner S.T.L. , S.T.D. of the Fatima Center in Canada and Catholic US attorney and author Christopher A. Ferrara appeared at the headquarters of the European Union (EU) in Strasbourg, France to speak in support of a motion for a declaration by the EU Parliament calling upon Pope Benedict XVI to carry out the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
“I believe we succeeded in making a case for the Consecration of Russia that would appeal even to rational non-believers, who have nothing to lose by voting in favor this measure,” said Mr. Ferrara. The motion has been lodged with the EU Parliament as an official legislative document and will become part of the public record of EU proceedings. It has already attracted the signatures of a growing number of additional sponsors in the Parliament, including members from Italy, Austria, and Ireland.
Despite two attempts to fulfill Mary’s Request during his pontificate, Pope John Paul II explained, “Can the Mother, Who with all the force of the Love that She fosters in the Holy Spirit and Who desires everyone’s salvation, can She remain silent when She sees the very bases of Her children’s salvation undermined?” The Pope then goes on to answer his own question: “No, She cannot remain silent!”
Dear Reader, Standing by the Cross of Jesus were three truly Liberated Women: Mary, the Mother of God, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalena. With their eyes fixated on that Holy Cross of Jesus, they truly represented freedom. The truly Liberated Woman mirrors these three Supermodels of Love and Truth. In addition, she forever has her prayers for the faithful-departed on her lips.
O my! Dear Reader, St. Paul says it magnificently, “I kneel before the Father, from Whom every family in Heaven and on Earth is named . . . that you (we who are) rooted and grounded in Love may have the strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the Love of Christ (Jesus) that surpasses all knowledge . . .”
The truly Liberated Woman believes in God the Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth. The truly Liberated Woman believes in Jesus Christ, His Only-begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. The truly Liberated Woman believes in the Holy Spirit, Lord and the Giver of life. The truly Liberated Woman believes in the Holy Catholic Church. The truly Liberated Woman believes in the communion of Saints. The truly Liberated Woman believes in the forgiveness of sins. The truly Liberated Woman believes in the resurrection of the body. The truly Liberated Woman believes in life everlasting! The truly Liberated Woman renews her vows and creed, daily!
Finally, Dear Reader, The truly Liberated Woman teaches her children that the ultimate, indeed the only real good, for anyone, is salvation! Moreover, salvation, entrance into The Kingdom of God, comes exclusively through acceptance of the Catholic Faith! This is the Unambiguous Truth. This is the sole message of True Evangelization. This is the Heart of the Message of Fatima, through Christ (Jesus) Our Lord and Redeemer, who Lives and Reigns forever and ever!
O Your Majesty, Queen Mary, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . . I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life! (pause) And, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death!”
O Your Royal Highness, King Jesus, “You are the only Safe Ground to stand on!”
Stay-tuned for “The Mystical Rose” on Thursday, November 22.
