The Eucharist as Safeguard of Freedom, Mirrored in Marriage

June 30, 2015

Maybe, just maybe, marriage must fall so that the state can centralize the control of births, and even deaths. This top-down social revolution will quickly lead to polyamorous relationships and the need for standardized control of children (“the rescue” by the State of the “population crisis”) and then it will give rise to the licensing of births to the healthy and preferred peoples that will be less of a burden upon the state and the economics of its health system.

Gay marriage is not an end in itself but a bold step towards the eugenics dream of Sanger’s 30’s, the caution in the “Brave New World” of Huxley, and the dystopian “1984” of Orwell. It is more about control than freedom. That is why commentators note that Pope Francis is in a hurry and why he urges us to read Robert Hugh Benson’s, “Lord of the World” as it explains the “ideological colonization”, or invasion, upon us by the enemy of truth and authentic freedom.

In a sense, the Christian understanding of life, marriage, and procreation was a safeguard to the proper use of human sexuality. That “proper use” itself upheld our freedoms as it was a cornerstone to a healthy society and a common wealth. With procreation out-of-the-way, we’re being divided and conquered. This is the fruit of “the pill” Pope Paul VI warned us of — which began to divide marriage (procreative/unitive) decades ago. Who would have thought then that it could lead us to such a widespread loss of authentic freedoms, religious liberty, and freedom of conscience?

It is difficult to get rid of the state once you let it into your Hugh-Bensonbedroom. Former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Eliot Trudeau in the passing of the omnibus bill, The White Papers, that struck down that country’s moral-life foundation to marriage and allowed for abortion in the late 1960’s, once said, “There is no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.” How ironic that that slogan and its logic bring about the exact opposite.

And yet we turn in our need to the Holy Eucharist, Christ among us, who gives us strength and sustains us in this battle. Pope Francis eagerly calls upon us to have hope and never the fear.

So we must look at the times with eyes wide open, and open our hearts and our mouths to the Bread of Heaven that is the food of salvation, the sacrament of unity and love. The battle has already been won by Christ. We must now live through the stream of time that flows to the eternal city and the banquet of holy victory.

Hold fast. Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Authentic marriage between a man and a woman, mirrors the exchange of persons within the Holy Trinity, the total self-giving in a culture of pure love that gives life — the Holy Eucharist.
