There is a "pilgrim cross" making the rounds in our churches nowadays. It is not the World Youth Day Cross.
Too Latin looking.
It is the Sierra Madre Cross.
Here is their promotional poster.
Here is the close-up
Yup. That is the hideous looking cross.
The Inquirer reported about it:
To dramatize the government’s failure to stop the destruction of the Sierra Madre mountain ranges, environmentalists, religious and nongovernment organizations started on Good Friday a pilgrimage of a 7-foot cross across 10 Luzon provinces and Metro Manila.
Fr. Pete Montallana, chair of the Save Sierra Madre Network, said over the phone that through the pilgrimage of the Sierra Madre cross, they “want government officials and the public to see and feel that the continuous destruction of the mountain is no different from the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.”
The salvation of our souls........likened to the destruction of the planet.
No surprise there actually.
This is totally Wiccan.
The pagan religion disguised as a Catholic effort to save the planet.
To work for the conservation of our planet is laudable. No problem with that. But to blur it with our own salvation history. Just plain apostasy!
Here is a part of the liturgy that is being passed around:
"Let us greet the East which bring the light of the Sun. Father Sun, in your blinding radiance, give us strength, light, at knowledge."
For the ordinary Catholic, this seems harmless, right? But no.
This was how pagans worshiped. And this is not how Christians worship.
We do not call the sun, Father!
Head on over to Fr. Zerrudo's blog and get blown away at how pagan some in the Catholic Church have become.
