Repentance and prayer – to the bishops of the V4 countries (+ video)

25 March 2018

The Lenten season culminates; we are entering the Holy Week. We commemorate Christ’s redemptive death and His glorious resurrection.

The Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate is pleading You, Most Reverend Bishops of the V4 countries: Please, encourage Your priests and believers to hold the Easter procession on 2 April 2018. This demonstration in support of the family and nation will then take place in every village and town.

When Slovakia was under threat of a maidan, a lot of believers made a promise to God. They pray for two hours every day until Easter for the salvation of Slovakia. They pray for one hour between 8 and 9 p.m. in the family circle. The second hour is set aside for personal prayer at a time during the day which suits them best. Many keep the fast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in such way that they do not eat hot meal until evening. God did hear the fervent prayers. But the spiritual battle has not ended. The V4 countries are still under threat of planned suicide through Dublin IV and the Istanbul Convention. It is like the battle between David and Goliath.

Some politicians, such as ex-President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus, see the only solution in an exit from the European Union.

We are calling for repentance and prayer in the first place. May there be brave men and women, God’s warriors, who likewise will make a promise to God to pray for two hours every day from Easter 2 April to Pentecost 20 May.

The Church leaders have rejected repentance already for several decades. They are thus responsible for current demoralization directed by the UN and EU, as well as for the Islamization of Christian nations.

Unfortunately, Vatican II did not deal with the topical issues and did not call for the necessary repentance. On the contrary, it opened the door to syncretism with paganism and to neo-Modernism through the historical-critical method. This method denies the Divinity of Christ, His redemptive sacrifice, the real and historical resurrection, and the inspiration of Scripture.

Syncretism introduced the magical phrase “a regard for other religions”, de facto a regard for demons. This opened the door not only to the Islamization of Europe but also to multiculturalism through the antimission of Buddhism and Hinduism. The gesture in Assisi then put this path of apostasy into practice.

Apostasy from the foundations of Christianity has paved the broad way for gender demoralization. Today it has been established as a standard even in the Church. Cardinal Marx promotes same-sex marriages in Catholic churches. Moral decay has its root in the idolatry of syncretism and in liberal theology which rejects the living God.

Therefore, we appeal to the bishops and priests of the Visegrad Four countries to show specific repentance to save their nations. Let this repentance today be four-day spiritual exercises. These should emphasize the essential truths of faith.

Let every priest express his personal relationship to Christ by confessing Jesus as his personal Saviour and Lord in word and gesture. It is also necessary to point out the hidden heresies of neo-Modernism and syncretism and to renounce them. Moreover, it is necessary to renounce sympathy for modern forms of divination, magic and spiritualism.

God through the prophet Ezekiel promised a new heart and a new Spirit. The spiritual transplantation of the new heart was performed on Calvary through the accomplishment of the testament: “Behold your mother.” Let therefore every priest receive a new heart like the disciple John. Let them receive the Holy Spirit, too, like the apostles on the day of Pentecost.

Dear bishops and priests, prepare the way for God’s miracle through this specific form of repentance. God will then save the V4 countries: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland!

In Christ,

Word of Life

“So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.”

Gal 5:16-17 (15/7/2018 – 29/7/2018)
