If You Want To Be Catholic, Prepare to Dispose of your Family if They Aren't On Board 100%

Well, the Novus Ordo isn't exactly very nice today in it's Gospel message today:

Luke Chapter 12: 49-53:

49 "I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled!
50 I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!
51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division;
52 for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three;
53 they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law." 

Whoa! This is not exactly a good message. You're probably asking: What? You mean I'll fight my family? YES! that's exactly what is meant. You may be lucky to be in a "catholic" household, but today's "catholic" household can include liars, hypocrites, pro-choice, pro-euthanasia, and just plain lukewarm "c"atholics. And if you are the sad 'sucker' in the family who actually adheres to the Magisterium and actually attends weekly Mass, guaranteed your parents and siblings will not respect you unless they are of the same mindset.

And if you are an attendee of the Latin Mass/1962 Mass/EF? Be prepared even by your practicing Catholic weekly attending-relatives who have embraced the "Spirit of Vatican II" to be attacked. Eventually you might have to make a choice to either cope with the pain and suffering, or cut them off completely .... that will be up to you, but honestly why do you want to hang around with people, even your own blood relatives, if they are just obstacles and millstones to your faith and your future childrens'? That or you could try the New Evangelization stuff, but likely your relatives are too self-centered and self-serving to want to care, or they know they'll have to give up their precious lifestyle to do so, whether it involves pre-marital sex or living "below their standard" or "suffering" through that "annoying" hour once a week when they have "better things to do with their time".

As a final note, here's a Franciscan Friar (an actual real shaved head friar!)'s take on the Gospel.
