From Patrick Madrid:
That’s right. In this jaw-droppingly offensive and blasphemous new video produced by Link TV, which is funded with Federal money — a.k.a. your tax dollars — the Holy Eucharist has been yet again desecrated before a camera, for the whole world to see.
Reporting on this apparent simulation of the Eucharist, the Catholic League reports today:
On February 3, Link TV featured a three and a half minute video that mocks Catholicism. The media outlet is available as a basic service in more than 31 million homes that receive direct broadcast satellite TV.
The video, “Divine Food,” opens with a priest waking up to a rumbling noise that shakes the religious symbols and statues in his room. He proceeds to a Catholic church where he discovers several wafers near a cup (the implication is that they are consecrated Hosts). In a disrespectful manner, he chews them vigorously and then admonishes the statues that are “looking at him.” He falls asleep in the church and when awakened he is asked to say Mass, which he refuses to do. The priest then makes large wafers out of dough and gives the pancake-like substance (which he calls the “Body of Christ”) to confused parishioners at Communion. The video ends when he drops the remaining “Hosts” into a dirty aquarium.
If this is not bona fide evidence that we are standing at the threshold of a new persecution against the Catholic Church (against Christianity in general), then I can’t imagine what could be classified as such.
Here is the video. I warn you, it will make your blood boil — or at least it should: http://www.linktv.org/video/2746
Say some prayers of reparation to our Lord after watching this video, on behalf of the wicked people who are responsible for producing it and for all those who will laugh along with it.
I once had a long conversation with a convert to the Catholic Church, a woman who used to be a practicing satanist. Among the other things she shared with me about how satanists operate, she declared that they simply don’t care about or bother with any group of Christians other than the Catholic Church. The way she put it, “We satanists would frequently pose as Catholics and approach to receive Communion at Mass, so we could pocket the consecrated host and bring it back to our group to profane it.” She said, with tremendous sorrow and remorse, that satanists know exactly Who that is in the Eucharist: Jesus Christ. And that’s why they focus their energies on attacking and mocking the Catholic Church.
And this new Link TV video atrocity is another, well-publicized, example of that satantic malice at work.
Are you mad now? Then stand up and make your voice heard on this. Pray for the idiots behind this and then raise some hell about it with all the appropriate parties.
