"Satanic rites in the Church's judgement

by Bishop Angelo Scola
Bishop emeritus of Grosseto, Italy Rector of the Pontifical Lateran University, Rome
The legacy of the modern age, which has seen, if not the defeat, at least a drastic reduction in the claims of rationalism, presents us with an unexpected explosion of the sacred. Secularization had been proclaimed as the reduction of Christian thought to "worldly", "nonreligious" terms. Today, however, the most varied forms of the sacred are springing up, which could be defined as naturalistic, inasmuch as they find answers to the religious sense in an understanding of nature (of the universe and of man) which, almost in the manner of the pre-Christian era, is once again regarded as something divine in itself (theta physic). Gods and demons populate the universe of this new irrational polytheism, paradoxically cultivated by the extraordinary tools offered by science and technology.
No longer to believe in God does not mean to believe in nothing, but instead to believe in everything. This well-known insight of Chesterton well describes the condition of many people today. Having abandoned the Christian faith, and disappointed by the claims of Enlightenment reason, they find themselves defenceless before reality. They are unable to free themselves from the anguish of a radical loneliness when confronted with the world and with time. To-overcome this anguish they resort to magic, which would allow them to gain the protection of occult powers, and they do not refrain from seeking an alliance with these same powers of evil.
For this reason magical practices proliferate, and even some Christian faithful participate in satanic groups that promote worship openly contrary to the Catholic religion. Regarding this state of affairs the Church, particularly her Pastors, is called to make a clear judgement, made possible by a renewed proclamation of the victory of Christ over Satan, sin and death.
To explain the Church's position and magisterial teaching regarding the problem of satanic cults, without neglecting to underscore their danger and their incompatibility with the nature of Christians faith and morals, this topic will be developed as follows: 1. the newness of Christian worship; 2. the reality of Satan and of his snares against men; 3. satanic rites in the judgement of the Church; 4. possible consequences of participating in satanic rites.
1. The newness of Christian worship
"I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship" (Rom 12:1). Christian worship, the work of Christ the Priest, with which man becomes associated, displays a very special character which radically distinguishes it from every other form of worship. It can never be reduced to pure ritual or pious practice. Adoration of God, in fact, which culminates in the celebration of the sacraments, is realized in its fullness only in the offering of one's own life as a sacrifice pleasing to the Father.
What is the basis of the originality of Christian worship? It is the Christ event: "This Jesus "God raised up, and of that we are all witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this which you see and hear. Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified" (Acts 2:32-33, 36). In a free and gratuitous way, before all ages, the Father decided to let men participate in his divine life, conforming them to Jesus Christ by the work of the Holy Spirit. Through this plan of salvation, he has given being to all things, visible and invisible, and among them to man, created in his image and likeness, and called to a supernatural life. With the sin of Adam this "original order" has not changed, but its redemptive character has been revealed. The eternal Son of God has become incarnate, and, in the paschal mystery (death, resurrection, ascension and gift of the Holy Spirit), he has completed the work of justification. It reaches men of all times through the Church, with her seven sacraments. Justification, according to well-known New Testament terminology, gives birth to sons in the Son: "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship. When we cry, 'Abbe! Father!', it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs" (Rom 8:14ff.). The sacrament of Baptism, intrinsically oriented to the Eucharist, effects this supernatural rebirth in the believer and brings him to new life in Christ, making him capable of meritorious acts.
In fact, the power and beauty of Christ's work is manifested, in a certain sense visibly, in the new life of the baptized, which is characterized above all by the three theological virtues: faith, hope and charity. Adherence to Jesus Christ in the obedience of faith, the practice of a fruitful charity towards God and neighbour, and the hope that the mercy of God will grant us the fullness of eternal life, which is already an object of present experience as a pledge, are the characteristics of the lives of the saints, those privileged representatives of the existential newness which Christ brought to the world. The existence of the Christian (en Christoi), being in itself the new worship, reaches its culmination in acts of worship in the specific sense. The Second Vatican Council, speaking of the liturgical celebration, recalls the teaching of Scripture and Tradition in this regard: "Every liturgical celebration, because it is an action of Christ the Priest and of his Body, which is the Church, is a sacred action surpassing all others. No other action of the Church can equal its efficacy by the same title and to the same degree" (Sacrosanctum Concilium, n. 7). In fact the act of worship, which for the Christian can be directed only to God, fundamentally has the form of a "response" to the gratuitous initiative of the Father in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. In it all three theological virtues are at work, and they in turn involve all the constitutive dimensions of the person.
2. The reality of Satan and his snares against men
Within this framework we can speak, seriously and without falling into exaggeration, of satanic rites: a poisonous tree that grows in soil polluted by magic. Above all we must not forget that the Church, on the one hand, has always reproved an excessive credulity in this matter, energetically denouncing all forms of superstition, such as the obsession with Satan and demons, and the various rites and forms of evil involvement with these spirits. On the other hand, with wisdom, she has been wary of a purely rationalistic approach to these phenomena, which in the end identifies them only and always as mental imbalances. The ecclesial attitude down the centuries has been characterized by a serene stance of faith.
As St. John Chrysostom reminds us: "It certainly gives us no pleasure to speak with you about the devil, but the doctrine which this enables me to speak of will be quite useful for you" (De diabolo tentatore, Hom. II, 1).
Twenty years ago it was not rare to encounter theological works denying the existence of the devil and of his real work of entrapping men. It reached the point that Pope Paul VI felt the need to present again the Church's faith in this regard at the General Audience of 15 November 1972: "Evil is not merely a lack of something, but an effective agent, a living spiritual being, perverted and perverting. A terrible reality. Mysterious and frightening. It is contrary to the teaching of the Bible and the Church to refuse to recognize the existence of such a reality, or to regard it as a principle in itself which does not draw its origin from God like every other creature: or to explain it as a pseudo-reality, a conceptual and fanciful personification of the unknown causes of our misfortunes". These words summarized the constant teaching of the Magisterium of the Church (5th-6th cent.: DS 286, 291, 325, 457 463; 13th cent.: DS 797; 15th-16th cent, DS 1349, 1511; 17th cent.: DS 2192, 2241, 2243-2245, 2251; 20th cent.: DS 3511), especially that of the Fourth Lateran Council of 1215, whose content has been analyzed carefully by the document The Multiple Forms of Superstition, published under the auspices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (26 June 1975). The pronouncement of Lateran IV, against the Albigenses and the Cathars, states: "The devil in fact, and the other demons were created naturally good by God, but they have made themselves evil. Man then sinned at the suggestion of the devil" (DS 800). John Paul II, in the cycle of catecheses on creation (9 and 30 July, and 13 August 1986), affirmed the same doctrine, and the Catechism of the Catholic Churchexpresses it with clarity: "Behind the disobedient choice of our first parents lurks a seductive voice, opposed to God, which makes them fall into death out of envy. Scripture and the Church's Tradition see in this being a fallen angel, called 'Satan' or the 'devil'. The Church teaches that Satan was at first a good angel, made by God: 'The devil and the other demons were indeed created naturally good by God, but they became evil by their own doing"' (CCC, n. 391). It is therefore unthinkable to deny real existence to a being created by God. We have to note, however, that the Catechism, following the whole Tradition of the Church, speaks of the devil in a subordinate role in salvation history, in the context of creation and original sin. This choice undercuts any possibility of a dualism that would put Satan at the same level with God. Salvation history is not the struggle of equal forces between the God of mercy and the father of lies. It is entirely defined by the omnipotence of the Father who sent his Son "to destroy the works of the devil" (1 Jn 3:8). There is only one principle of being and, therefore, there is but one possibility of victory: the whole work of Satan is overshadowed, from the beginning, by defeat. "The power of Satan is, nonetheless, not infinite. He is only a creature, powerful from the fact that he is pure spirit, but still a creature. He cannot prevent the building up of God's reign. Although Satan may act in the world out of hatred for God and his kingdom in Christ Jesus, and although his action may cause grave injuries— of a spiritual nature and, indirectly, even of a physical nature—to each man and to society, the action is permitted by divine providence which with strength and gentleness guides human and cosmic history. It is a great mystery that providence should permit diabolical activity, but 'we know that in everything God works for good with those who love him' (Rom 8:28)" (CCC, n. 395)."

Almost 50 million Americans now on food stamps as nation plunges into widespread poverty

by Thomas Henry 

(NaturalNews) As economic recovery continues to prove dismal if not illusory, American families are signing up for food stamps in record numbers, showing signs that poverty is increasing and the job market is far from recovering.

According to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) numbers, households on food stamps increased by 45,900 in one month, hitting a staggering new high in June of 23.117million households, with an additional 125,079 individuals signing up for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, a near-record 47.76 million people that is just below the December 2012 peak of 47.79 million.

More than 80% of those families receiving food stamp benefits are at or below the poverty line, with more than 61% of households drastically below the poverty line, making less than $14,648 in a year per household of three.

These numbers reflect a bigger trend that is all but abysmal in scope - that more than 22 million people have been added to the government dole since December 2007, at the onset of the economic crisis that has spiraled into near depression levels. According to Zero Hedge, more than 2.2 million jobs are needed to reach equilibrium with Fall 2008 levels of employment and cost of living affordability.

Worse, many of the new employment opportunities only offer part time or low wage jobs, threatening the viability of more and more households. So many of the unemployment numbers do not accurately reflect the health of the nation, and, in fact, have helped to hide the decline.

The USDA has been aiding this by promoting its SNAP food stamp program to persons above - but near - the poverty line, essentially acknowledging that their prospects in the economy are dim despite cheerleading from the Obama Administration to the contrary. While food stamps officially benefit those working part time or for low wages, the unemployed, welfare recipients, the elderly and disabled as well as the homeless, taxpayer-funded advertisement campaigns have been recruiting struggling families still earning a living to sign up for SNAP rosters as well. The USDA has specifically targeted children from low income households, Latino immigrants with Spanish-language soap operas embedded with appealing messages as well as individuals from America's heartland who suffer from "mountain pride," a term deliberately coined to combat "self-reliant" attitudes and entice individuals and families resistant to hand outs to take on benefits, and with it, increased government dependence."  Continues.
