St Catherine of Siena
‘Homosexuals cause Nausea to Our Lord’
St Catherine of Siena
Whenever we may become concerned that we are perhaps being a little too strong in our warnings about the media and its support of homosexuality we must turn to Sacred Scripture, the teachings of the Church and her saints. There we will find courage to keep up the fight but we must always do this out of charity for as St Paul says ‘If I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I should have all faith so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing’ (1 Cor 13:2). We believe that warning against media promoted homosexuality is a great charity, an act of love for homosexuals and the people affected by the media.
The great saint and doctor of the Church, St Catherine of Siena, was not afraid to exercise this work of charity towards homosexuals. For she was a mystic to whom Our Lord appeared and said :
“They [the homosexuals] not only fail from resisting the weakness [of fallen human nature] …. but they do even worse when they commit the cursed sin against nature. Like the blind and stupid, having dimmed the light of their understanding, they do not recognize the disease and misery in which they find themselves. For this not only causes Me nausea, but is disgusting even to the devils themselves whom these depraved creatures have chosen as their lords.
For Me this sin against nature is so abominable that for it alone five cities were destroyed by virtue of the judgment of My Divine Justice, which could no longer bear their iniquity …. It is disgusting to the devils not because evil displeases them or because they find pleasure in good, but rather because their nature is angelic and flees upon seeing such a repulsive sin being committed. For while certainly it is the devil that first strikes the sinner with the poisoned arrow of concupiscence, nonetheless when a man actually carries out such a sinfulact, the devil goes away.”
This is pretty strong stuff, but remember who is saying it, not St Catherine but Jesus himself. The Jesus in the New Testament didn’t mince his words either, using language such as hypocrites, and brood of vipers and whited sepulchres outside but inwardly all full of dead men’s bones and all filthiness, to the Pharisees. Some would like to paint the orthodox Catholic as the Pharisee of today but they would be wrong: the Pharisees and Sadducees of today are those who teach the new secular law – the politicians and the Militant Secularists in the media.
