Moral Relativism- The Modern Heresy That Has Destroyed the Moral Fiber of the Western World

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. (Matthew 7:21)
Very few days go by when a conversation with a good Christian may presents itself with a relativistic view of morality. Perhaps, a portion of the conversation might sounds like this, “I know she is living with her boyfriend, but she seems so happy. As long as she is happy, I am happy and her boyfriend is such a nice guy.” Says the friend, mom, dad, aunt or uncle. They may even continue, “If I love her, I should support him/her.” This is said in spite of the fact that objectively they are living in a state that is gravely morally wrong. When challenged with that position the response of often, “You are being judgmental.” 
Today, over 50% of couples live together before getting married. 
“Usually those that accuse us of being judgmental know in there hearts that their position is morally wrong. Often gravely morally wrong.”
These conversations, or many of similar moral gravity, show us that the moral fiber of the western world has been eroded by moral relativism over the last several decades. The cause of this decay is the failure of Christendom to recognize and stand for absolute truth. That source of Truth is God himself.
“When we reject truth and accept moral relativism we reject God.”
Moral Relativism, as a philosophy, is the opinion that moral or ethical statements, which change from person to person, are all equally valid and no one’s opinion of “right and wrong” is better than another. In short, truth shifts from person to person. On its face this would appear to be the most tolerant approach to living in society to. In reality, a truth that shifts from person to person is not truth at all. Truth is constant or it would not be true.
“Moral Relativism is the self justification of what is wrong to do what you want, as opposed to what is right.”
This attitude toward truth has resulted in those attempting to live a moral life are considered intolerant and punishable by law or loss of lively hood. Example: The case of a Christian baker that refused use their artistic talent to support a same sex wedding.
Sometimes a way seems right, but the end of it leads to death! (Proverbs 14:12)
Why is Moral Relativism a heresy? Simply stated, because it rejects the Christian understanding and foundation of truth.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church in paragraph 2089 defines heresy as:
Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and Catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same.
As Christians, we must live with Charity, seek truth and strive for justice. Because moral relativism has no real basis in truth it works against both charity and justice. Abortion is another prominent example of a morally relativistic look at truth. The person that defends abortion cries out, “Its my body”, “It’s not a human being.” Or “Who am I to tell somebody else what to do…” When confronted with the truth that refutes the above statements they will respond, “I just don’t believe that.” The sad truth is abortion takes a defenseless human life.
Over 20% of all unborn children are killed by abortion in the United States of America. Approximately 1.2 million unborn lives are taken each year!
Pope Benedict XVI, while still Cardinal Ratzinger, spoke about the dangers of moral relativism on more than one occasion: Cardinal Ratzinger said in his Without Roots, “We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one’s own ego and one’s own desires.” … “In recent years I find myself noting how the more relativism becomes the generally accepted way of thinking, the more it tends toward intolerance. Political correctness … seeks to establish the domain of a single way of thinking and speaking. Its relativism creates the illusion that it has reached greater heights than the loftiest philosophical achievements of the past. It presents itself as the only way to think and speak — if, that is, one wishes to stay in fashion. … I think it is vital that we oppose this imposition of a new pseudo-enlightenment, which threatens freedom of thought as well as freedom of religion.”

As Cardinal Ratzinger, he also noted in Truth and Tolerance, “relativism … in certain respects has become the real religion of modern man.”
Stated many years ago, this is prophetic in many ways. Moral Relativism often uses the false flags of tolerance and discrimination to attack those that carry the flag of truth. Today, it has become more important to walk the line of tolerance as opposed to speaking the truth. Speak the truth publicly or privately against immorality and one could risk losing your livelihood. Look at the case of Brendan Eich, CEO of Mozilla, who was forced to step down because of his stance against same sex marriage. The “religion” of moral relativism will not stop at spreading confusion. It becomes its own form of bigotry against truth and ends in the persecution of those that stand for truth.
“Moral relativism builds alliances whose objectives are to destroy what is right and just.”
Why has moral relativism taken such a hold of society? The relativists, many of whom claim Christianity as their faith, will scream and overplay discrimination where none exists in order to beat down those faithful to the truth. An example would be a former president’s statement, “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This, of course, is a broad, inaccurate generalization which failed in its attempt to paint people of faith as bigoted and yet it is a view perpetuated by relativists to minimize the effect of faithful Christians who try to spread the truth of the Gospel.
He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles, among whom are you also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ; to all the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.(Romans 1:5-7)
How can we turn back this scourge to the faithful and society in general around us? We must remember, first and foremost, our call on this earth is to know, love and serve God so that we can spend eternity with Him in heaven.
Pope Benedict XVI, in 1969 when he was Cardinal Ratzinger, is quoted as stating:
“The future of the Church, once again as always, will be reshaped by saints, by men, that is, whose minds probe deeper than the slogans of the day, who see more than others see, because their lives embrace a wider reality.”
Secondarily, we must know where to seek the truth. In today’s world, in which Moral Relativism shades the truth, clouds the mind and deceives the soul, the Church is the great source of moral truths and has been for 2,000 years. The truth of morals and faith, found in the Gospel and the magisterial teaching of the Church, have not changed since its founding by Jesus Christ.
But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth. (1 Tm 3:15)
Finally, we must be the light of truth and love that shines in the darkness. Humanity is drawn toward truth and love because of our heart’s yearning for something greater than ourselves. This longing for truth was placed there by God so that we will seek Him from the depths of our soul. We must seek truth for ourselves, we must seek truth for our children and grandchildren and most of all, we must seek truth for God.
God is good!
JMJ, pray for us!

We Have No Wine


UPDATE: March 27 –  Pope Francis’s Urbi et Orbi blessing in the pouring rain, before a dark, empty St. Peter’s Square.  May the Lord hear our prayers and turn these tears from Heaven into the wine of love, faith and hope for the people of the world! (Blessing is at 54:45)

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and His disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to Him, ‘They have no wine.’” (John 2:1-3)

We have no wine. Our priests are offering Mass privately, but the faithful must learn to do without the Eucharist due to the pandemic. Catholics now find themselves at the beginning of a sacramental drought, and thus having to dig deeper in search of the “Living Water” by more frequent prayer and by turning to the Mother of Jesus, our advocate. She knows already what humanity is suffering. Mary immediately presents our need to her Son, “They have no wine.” She tells us, as she told the servers at the Wedding at Cana, “Do whatever He tells you.” Mary always points to Jesus. She desires that we look at the Face of her Son, listen, and act, then Jesus will turn our water into wine.

Rather than turn to media and the endless drumbeats of despair, turn to Mary, our advocate, by saying more rosaries  contemplating the Face of Christ with Mary in the rosary.

“To contemplate the Face of Christ, and to contemplate it with Mary, is the ‘program’ which I have set before the Church at the dawn of the third millennium…It is the Church’s task to reflect the light of Christ in every historical period, to make His Face shine also before new generations of the new millennium. Our witness, however, would be hopelessly inadequate if we ourselves had not first contemplated His Face.” –Pope St. John Paul II

Making the Stations of the Cross, together with the Sorrowful Mother is another powerful means to contemplate the Face of Jesus in His Passion, together with Mary.

Salve Regina – Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!

Dao si nam neizreciv dar. Dar bogat ljubavlju. Darovao si nam čitavog Sebe. Hvala Ti, Isuse. Hvala Ti, Isuse, što si oduvijek bio čovjek blizine. Uz Tebe se svatko osjećao prihvaćen i ljubljen. Nitko nije imao dojam da si ga olako shvatio ili površno slušao. I danas je tako, Isuse. Utaži, Gospodine, moju glad za osobom povjerenja, osobom koja ima vremena i ljubavi za drugoga. Osobom koja ne važe, koja ne mjeri, koja nije zaokupljena prvenstveno sobom. Koja zna čuti nečije teškoće i onda kada samo šutnja progovara. Osobom koja će bez uvrijeđenosti saslušati ono što možda i ne želi čuti. Pomozi mi da tu osobu tražim jedino u Tebi. Znaš i sam koliko sam puta ranjena zbog neprisutnosti osoba koje bi mi trebale biti blizu. Razočarana jer se netko od najbližih ne sjeti da mi je potreban ili se ne sjeti nečega što nije trebao previdjeti. Boli me kada primijetim da me netko uopće ne sluša ili me potpuno ignorira. Gospodine, pomozi mi ispuniti te praznine. Pomozi mi drugome biti poput Tebe. Biti netko tko zna drugome biti blizak, tko zna biti bližnji. Biti netko tko ima vremena i ljubavi za drugoga. Isuse, održao si svoje obećanje da ćeš biti s nama u sve dane do svršetka svijeta. Dao si nam sebe u Kruhu života. Na Tebe više nitko ne mora čekati, Isuse, u svakom času si sama prisutnost. Na svakoj Misi, u svakoj Pričesti. Hvala Ti, Isuse, na tom daru. Hvala ti što se i meni daruješ svojim Tijelom i svojom Krvlju. Više nisam sama, nisam prepuštena samoj sebi. Hvala Ti, Isuse …Suzana Monika Suzana Monika IL SORRISO DI MARIA 7 mtSptoniuhsaceormed · Santa Madre di Lourdes, madre degli infermi, poni sotto il tuo manto i malati terminali.
