Father Paul Kramer, et al The Devil's Final Battle, Ch.XIII
The great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top
Serious pastoral negligence among highest hierarchy
Moreover, how are we to understand Lucy’s great difficulty in writing the final part of the Secret when she has already written other things that were extremely difficult to put down?
Had it been merely a matter of prophesying new and severe punishments, Sister Lucy would not have experienced difficulties so great that a special intervention from Heaven was needed to overcome them.

The Suicide of Alteringthe Faith in the Liturgy
Compulsory theocracy ought to collapse
…Vl. Solov’ev acknowledges a positive significance to the falling separate of the natures of the human powers from God, since after the falling separate there is made possible the free co-uniting of man with God. The Kingdom of God cannot be realised by way of compulsion and coercion. Compulsory theocracy ought to collapse, and man ought to enter upon the path of a free revealing of his powers. Vl. Solov’ev surmises, that the world ought to proceed through freedom and freely come to God.
Contemporary religion represents a very pitiful thing: properly speaking, religion as the dominating principle, as the center of spiritual attraction, does not exist today…

Contemporary religion represents a very pitiful thing: properly speaking, religion as the dominating principle, as the center of spiritual attraction, does not exist today; instead, the is the so-called religiosity as a personal mood, a personal taste: some people have this taste, others do not, just as some people like music and others do not.
In the absence of the unconditional centring [of all interests in religion] we have as many relative, temporary centers of life and consciousness as we have different requirements and interests, tasts and inclinations, opinions and points of view.
It would be superfluous to dwell upon the mental and moral discord and the lack of principle, at prevailent in the realm of society as well as in the minds and hearts of the individuals, for that fact is too well known to anyone at all introspective or observant.
