How’s that for the “mark of the beast”!
Novus Ordo “Be A Saint” Campaign uses telling Acronym
You can’t make this stuff up: A prominent Novus Ordo adherent has launched an apparel campaign with a logo that is supposedly meant to encourage people, especially youth, to become saints. The acronym the campaign is using as the logo for its apparel is — we kid you not — “BEAST”. It is allegedly short for “Be A Saint”, i.e. “Be A St.” The logo is displayed above.
The celebrity co-founder of the BEAST campaign is Luke Vercollone, an American soccer player, who is described on the official web site as a “practicing Catholic with a passion for the Bible, ecumenism and Christian unity” (source).
Here are are some images of the advertising for the BEAST clothes line:
The official web site at which this blasphemous-demonic junk can be purchased is beast4christ.com, and their Facebook page is likewise named “Beast 4 Christ”. Think about this for a minute! And yet their promo slogan is, “Live the Gospel boldly!” With St. Paul we ask: “And what concord hath Christ with Belial?” (2 Cor 6:15). This is absurdity on stilts!
By all means, be a saint, and make campaigns to promote authentic sanctity among Catholics young and old. But for heaven’s sake, don’t use “BEAST” as your eye-catching acronym! For those who may need a refresher, Chapter 13 of the Apocalypse should suffice. To use “BEAST” apparel as your sanctity promo gimmick is just totally wrong. Being a beast, as it were, is the exact opposite of being a saint.
In this manner, the word “beast” is being associated in people’s minds with (supposed) sainthood. One of the long-term effects of this will be that the insurmountable barrier that exists between holiness and wickedness will gradually be dissolved, the line between right and wrong will be blurred; and people, especially the young, will begin to call evil good, and good evil: “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Is 5:20). If one day there will be “Satanists for Life”, people won’t think anything of it.
Only in the Novus Ordo would people buy and sell clothing that displays the word “BEAST” and think themselves to be promoting Catholic sanctity. But can we assume that the creators of this are really innocent? At a time when monuments to Satan are being erected and clubs are being started in schools to get children to worship the devil, it is difficult to see how this could be nothing more than a good-faith mistake.
“And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads” (Apoc 13:16).
The mark of the beast, when it comes, will be worn by these people like a badge of honor. And don’t think this means we believe all who wear this to be of evil intent. No, most of them are probably simply absolutely clueless and deceived. But we must remember that most of those who will do the work of Antichrist are what are loosely called “good people”. Fr. Frederick Faber once warned that this fact would contribute greatly to the deceptive power of the Antichrist:
We must remember that if all the manifestly good men were on one side and all the manifestly bad men on the other, there would be no danger of anyone, least of all the elect, being deceived by lying wonders. It is the good men, good once, we must hope good still, who are to do the work of Anti-Christ and so sadly to crucify the Lord afresh…. Bear in mind this feature of the last days, that this deceitfulness arises from good men being on the wrong side.
(Fr. Frederick Faber, Sermon for Pentecost Sunday, 1861; qtd. in Fr. Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World [text here]; underlining added.)
Regardless of intentions, there is nothing Catholic left in these people… They seriously think that by declaring themselves to be “beasts” for Christ, they can embark on a journey toward holiness? What is next? Demons for Jesus? Devils for God? It is unbelievable.
Folks, whoever isn’t awake now, is dead.
Spread this far and wide.
