“…And the Woman fled into the Wilderness, where She had a place prepared by God…”
Hello and thank you for stopping by CatholicEclipsed, a website dedicated to the dissemination of authentic Catholicism, and the exposure of its counterfeit. The Catholic religion is in eclipse, and very few know what the Church teaches regarding Faith, Morals, and Discipline. Sects abound, the agents of darkness, and the shadows they cast converge over the true Faith, and obscure its Light. It is the desperate hope of this website in some small way to change that.
Are you seeking answers to the questions about the pervasive errors, outright heresies, and blasphemies that abound in the world? Do you attend mass at your local parish church, and instead of having a prayerful disposition, you find yourself clenching your teeth in suppressed anger and disgust at what is called worship, but what could easily be classified as a circus performance? Do you question the reactionary stance some take in opposition to these liturgical abuses, the so-called recognize and resist program which acknowledges that the reforms which made the abuses possible came from the hand of a legitimate pope and council but must be nevertheless rejected? In your desperation to escape the cognitive dissonance caused by membership in the post-conciliar church, did you flee to mass-centers owned and operated by bishops and priests, only to harbor doubts about their mission or jurisdiction? If so, you’ve come to the right place. You’ve come into the Wilderness!
But if in your haste to answer these questions you visited other websites purporting to be Catholic, then you will do well to stop over at the SECT SPECTRUM page which provides a helpful list—no, wait, strike that—which provides an invaluable Index of Forbidden Websites suspected of Heresy. There, that’s more like it.
During the Apocalypse, it’s just safer to stay home.
So what is a home-base, and why is it necessary? A home-base is your home, from where you carry out operations and missions of every-day living, where outside rages the spiritual war-torn world. We are at war, and because it is a spiritual war makes it no less frightening or destructive. Indeed, for those who walk by faith and not by sight, the war is more frightening and destructive, because eternal souls are on the line, not just flesh and blood.
So what kind of operations and missions? Well, first and foremost the mission is prayer, preferably at a home-altar, at which a family offers daily praise, thanksgiving, and petitions to God, His Mother, and to the Angels and Saints, for graces to carry out one’s duty in life. Pray for family members, but also for our enemies, and pray for those poor souls in purgatory, be they family, friends, or strangers.
As will be made clear through the publication of posts, there’s no safe place from which to receive sacraments. Apart from baptism and matrimony, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are the sole means by which one attains grace during this apocalyptic time. This will be shown to be a demonstrable and dogmatic fact, but for now you’ll have to take my word for it.
If you need to label what kind of Catholicism this website champions, call it Catacomb Catholic, Stay-at-Home Catholic, or Home-Alone Catholic. All these monikers mean the same thing: Catholics who hunker down at their home-base, bunkered and fortified against the enemies of the Faith.
CatholicEclipsed represents and reflects the thoughts and opinions of its fallible author, and must not be taken to be anything other than what it is, a blog about the Church during the Apocalypse, and, as such, is therefore not the Magisterium, nor even a scholarly publication with all the rigorous citation standards that accompany such. Though its author endeavors to be accurate and true, human nature being what it is cannot prevent errors or worse from slipping in unintended. If this is known to have happened, it is the author’s desire that he be made aware as soon as possible, so a correction may be made.
