Of all our sins, gossip is one of the worst. It harms others and does nothing to help us, rather serving to degrade us. It is not in the nature of any honest investigation into facts, but exists in the realm of idle speculation and hearsay, and is mostly immune to rebuttal because it takes place behind our backs.
The very worst kind of gossip is the kind that deliberately exploits half-truths and preys upon the ignorant.
If you go to my website, www.annavonreitz.com, and read the very first article called "Letter to Cardinal George" you will learn some very alarming things by following along as I explain them to the departed Cardinal of Chicago.
There are some references in that letter which you, as a Lay Person, may not completely grasp, but as this is a letter addressed to a Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, that content held specific meaning known to him and to me, much in the same way that legal terms have meanings that lawyers know and that average people are unfamiliar with.
Chief among these "Universal Church" means the whole assembly of those called together by the Creator to abide with his son. The actual church like actual people, has no name, so it is called the Universal Church--- a church that comes from all corners of the Earth and includes people based on their hearts, minds, and souls, not their politics, dogmas, or denominations.
If you have read your Bible you will recall where various people came seeking favor and positions in the new kingdom, thinking of it as an earthly kingdom with offices and honors and powers to be bestowed --- and what were they told? That even the son wasn't privy to who would be called to him, and that it was not his decision to make, but his Father's.
Think about that. It is your mind and heart and soul that matter, and the True God who searches your mind and heart and soul who decides whether or not you are part of the true, only, and Universal Church.
I was telling him --- again --- that all this ridiculous sectarian strife and arrogant assumptions of Catholic superiority are never justified; there is no excuse for taking advantage of people based on the fact that they are not Catholic. The True God does not allow for that. And if he serves the True God, neither can he.
This is a bone of contention, because certain elements within the Roman Catholic Church have treated it like an elite clubhouse and used belief or disbelief in Catholic Dogma as a rationale for committing crimes against non-Catholics, even heinous crimes.
I was giving him Notice that I have been called to the Lamb and to his altar, which is his body and blood, and that I am consecrated to him at the level of my soul.
Now these concepts may be difficult for you to grasp, but the scripture plainly tells us that the soul is in the blood. And my blood, my soul, are united with him always: his blood with my blood, his soul with my soul, his mind in my mind, his heart in me, his power like a river set free.
We are but an "expression" of the True God, like a poem or a song, a singular creation, each one already whole, already mighty, already perfect. All the rest is just delusions and bad choices, wrong turns, mistakes, scars waiting to be erased, wounds to be healed.
No, Cardinal George and I both knew --- and you need to know --- that I was not talking about any altar made of marble or stone, no cutting with any knife, but a different kind of altar, a crossroads, a single point, where across all of eternity we are part of him and he is part of us, forever.
"Neither life nor death shall ever, from the Lord his children sever." -- and the tie that binds us is love. Our love for him and his love for us.
Nothing can separate us. No circumstance. No accident. No condition of depravity or delusion or sin. No need. No grief. No rejection or rebuttal, no mistake. We are bound together in perfection at a far deeper level than all of this.
As part of the True and Living God expressed in this small vessel of flesh, I was telling Cardinal George and through him the entire Roman Catholic Church and all of its Vatican edifices, to repent of the evils I explained in my letter and which I brought before his conscience and his consciousness as a sword, not a pin prick.
Contrary to his habitual expectations, I did not address him as a beggar seeking any absolution this Earth can give. I addressed him as a child of the Living God and called upon him to do his duty in no uncertain terms -- and I could do this, because I remembered who I was and who I am and who I will be.
So all those silly people scurrying around behind my back and whispering and pointing and saying, oh, look! She's talking about blood and oaths and altars, oh, my! Oh, big, scary dangerous things!
Let me remind you all that it is far more "dangerous" to remember who you are and act upon it as Sons and Daughters.
It is far more dangerous to perceive the true altar of the Lamb, which is his message written with his life, sealed with his blood, and shared by his soul, than to sit around stupidly supposing that you need middlemen to arbitrate your salvation.
If he abides in you and you abide in him, there is no separation. There is no chink for Satan to enter in. There is no space for delusions. No time like the present to stand with all you are or can muster against evil of all kinds. No time like now to speak up and take action, as I surely have.
Take up your cross at the crossroads, that point of intersection where his life and your life unite. Stand there in utter humility and explode with the fire of the Holy Spirit born within you, and know that you are well and truly baptized by no human hand, created by no human flesh, named nor bound by any human mind.
There is truth and power and freedom and might in you, far beyond any concept of limitation or pain or time.
But you must wake up. You must leave childish things --- like gossip ---behind.
