A Message About Victim Souls and Vows

Someone has a webpage about "unhealthy devotions" and has included my site, quoted my vows, and determined these are negative, unhealthy, and invite the devil into one's life (presumably mine), and say it can take years of counseling and deliverance to be rid of the evil entities that are all too happy to increase the suffering.

I was made aware of this web site which says is by a Catholic who claims loyalty to the Church's Magisterium and lists various other evil devotions. Yes, some do seem awful, and lists known condemned persons, as well.

Unfortunately, I found out during a horrific pain siege, of which I'm yet trying to endure, and this web site did not help matters, as it also has a petition, claiming to send documentation to the Holy See.

My confessor has been trying to instill in me to ignore what people say, but in such pain as I have been, this site frightened me, upset me, and confused--all signs of the devil, as we know. So friends investigated this site, and found it to be by a person who denounces the Cure d'Ars and has some opinions about the Blessed Mother. They told me to ignore the site and the person, have nothing to do with it, and reminded me that some of the greatest saints were victim souls, and most saints and mystics of the Church take vows not unlike ones offered on this blog site.

My spiritual father said I am not possessed, friends have asked their priests of the situation, and I am reassured. What is disturbing, once more, is how Catholics can so vilify other Catholics without knowing them, and become vigilantes. My spiritual father reminded me that Catholics helped throw kindling on St. Joan of Arc's burn pile....

Regardless, I hope to begin writing again. Am not sure if it will be on Victim Soul site, but possibly. Or I might start anew on a site called Catholic Nothing, for surely nothing can be vilified about nothing. I am tired of the attacks, which are Satan in other people, if they'd stop to think about it themselves, and my confessor this morning reminded me that St. John Vianney had many negative things happen to him but got used to it. He also tried to leave Ars three times, without success. St. Padre Pio had his offerings to suffer, and he was hardly demonically possessed, and his sufferings did become worse, but was that evil entities doing it to him?

It is true that in possession cases, or in situations in which curses have been placed on people, strange maladies can occur and sufferings increase. Friends and a couple of priests prayed for my deliverance from any evil, the past few days, as a safeguard, probably most for my peace of mind which was cruelly disrupted by this "unhealthy devotion" site, which seems to destroy the good it could be doing, as it does mention new age ideologies, but runs down legitimate offerings and valid saints.

Another possibility for future writing might be under the topic/title: Gardens of Agnus Dei. I need something positive and creative--not the hatefulness that some Catholics seem to be tossing into the blogosphere.

I'm also praying about being hidden or not, as perhaps, such as the site in which the man does not reveal his identity or credentials (although tech savvy friends were able to dig around and find out who this person is and his suspect qualifications), it is not right to write anonymously. Perhaps one's credentials need to be mentioned in order to reassure others who may be reading.

Regardless, I have been offering these latest sufferings, and I include offering them for all who are suffering and offering their sufferings as victim souls to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and I am offering them for the man, well-intentioned and perhaps self-righteous in a sincere way. It would be better if he'd remove the photo of my blog from his web site and remove the quotes and his erred opinions about my life, my vows, my spiritual status. He does an injustice to those who suffer in the Lord.

The photo is one a priest from India who is serving in Vienna, Austria, took and sent me a couple years ago. It reminds me of suffering, in a way, as sometimes pain seems like it freezes our bodies and mind from any kind of active good, yet inside there is still warmth and viable life, and goodness, and prayer, and love. We can always pray and love despite the greatest pain.
