"Calls" Part 4: Who Exactly is "Sister Lucy" "calling" us to Obey?
Dr. Chojnowski: Remember this is from 1997. On p. 210, we read, "It is Moses who transmits God's message to his people. Could it be that no one else is capable of speaking directly to God?...In Moses, we see represented the Head of the Church, commissioned by Jesus Christ with the task of passing on to us the laws and words of God. Therefore, we have to believe in God and in his Church, just as the Israelites believed and said to Moses, "Go near, and hear all that the Lord our God will say, and speak to us all that the Lord our God will speak to you; and we will listen and obey" (Deut. 5, 27). This should be our response too: to listen to the Church, and believe what it says --- certain that what it tells us is the word of God --- and obey. "We will listen and obey."
And again, on p. 227, "Like the Apostle, we must believe in Christ and remain united to Him, in the person of the Successor of St. Peter, the Pope and Bishop of Rome and say, with him: "We have come to believe and are convinced that You are the Holy One of God, the Christ, the Son of the living God, who came into the world to save us; and that You only have the words of eternal life." (Jn. 6:69) And when we see that others are falling away, we should stand all the more firmly in our faith, united to Christ, in the person of his representative, the Pope, the one true Head of the one true Church of God, founded by Jesus Christ. He is still present and will be with us until the end of time: 'I am with you always, to the close of the age."(Mt. 28:20)
