WHO IS GOD? WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? WHAT IS THE COST OF FOLLOWING JESUS?

Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), these are especially lonely times for some people. Solitude leads to contemplation. For most of us, there are four big questions. –Why am I here? –What is right and wrong? –What brings me meaning –What happens to a human being when I die? List from Ravi Zacharias (an expert in …

Are we entering the false world of virtual reality, virtual truth and virtual church?

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

maxresdefault

When I became a Catholic, I did not join ‘virtual church’ but the true, hand-on version of a communion of Christ’s children . . . born in the womb of the Bride of Christ . . . a family of the Most High, a Divine Family that lives and loves with one mind and will.

Our lives on earth was wrested away (or was supposed to be) from self-absorbed pleasure and living primarily for our own desires and betterment. We were as real a family as our any good and loving natural family; in fact more real. We are a supernatural family with Christ acting as loving father, showering His love upon us with the Holy Spirit and the Wisdom of His Father and His Father’s Will to be carried on eternally in a state of bliss.

This Church (or family) has weathered its storms continuously from the beginning. We…

A First; or is it the Last gasp of desperation by Satan

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

sealed-tomb-e1522529912609

Tomorrow there will be no Palm Sunday proclamation of the Kingship of Jesus Christ as He enters Jerusalem. And presumably on Easter Sunday we will celebrate for the first time that the stone slab at the entrance of his tomb will still be in place and that in the darkness within He lies there, unaccompanied, and forgotten.

The invisible enemy seems to have overcome the hidden God. For His manifestation has always been His presence in the Holy Species of the Sacrament of our Spiritual lives; the Eucharist, the Sacrament of sacraments, the Holy of holies, the promise of Christ to never abandon us or leave us orphaned. He has been the light of the world and it seems ironic that this year He is kept locked away from His people . . . as if defeated by the gates of Hell.

As He is quarantined and practices social distancing…

From Rush . . . some statistics on worldwide deaths

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

I appreciate the previous post by Charlie and I would like to add my 2 cents as well.

Just to put things in perspective a little bit, Rush Limbaugh read us the following yesterday.

Coronavirus, 21,000 deaths.
Seasonal flu, 113,000.
Malaria, 228,000.
Suicide, 249,000.
Traffic fatalities, 313, almost 314,000 deaths.
HIV/AIDS, 391,000 deaths.
Alcohol related deaths, 581,000.
Smoking-related deaths, 1,162,000.
Cancer deaths, 1,909,000 deaths.
Deaths attributed to starvation, 2,382,000 deaths.
And death by abortion, 9,900,000.

In the first three months of this year, January 1 through March 25th.

Maybe we should have a push afoot to return to family farms or simple labor. We could lower the starvation rates and the abortion rates (another eventual laborer for the farm or factory) which kill the most people every year. In those early agrarian and industrial days (my grandad was 1 of 19 kids on a poor farm in KY) a birth…

The Wake Up Call

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

A father who does not punish his children does not love them, but neglects them; a doctor who uncaringly observes the patient getting worse until gangrene does not want his recovery. God is a loving Father because He teaches us what we have to do to be worthy of eternal happiness in Paradise. When we disobey His commandments by sinning, He does not let us die but comes to find us and sends us many signs, often very sternly. Then we mend our ways, repent, do penance, and return to our old friendship with Him. You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you. I think the words of Our Lord leave no room for ambiguity.
ARCHBISHOP CARLO MARIA VIGANO

Something struck me today. I have been praying for years for God to do something about the general corruption in Western society and the specific corruption…

Flattening the Curve of Covid-19

Smoke of Satan & the Open Windows of Vatican II

What is the curve?

The “curve” researchers are talking about refers to the projected number of people who will contract COVID-19 over a period of time. (To be clear, this is not a hard prediction of how many people will definitely be infected, but a theoretical number that’s used to model the virus’ spread.) Here’s what one looks like:

A sample epidemic curve, with and without social distancing. (Image credit: Johannes Kalliauer/ CC BY-SA 4.0)

The curve takes on different shapes, depending on the virus’s infection rate. It could be a steep curve, in which the virus spreads exponentially (that is, case counts keep doubling at a consistent rate), and the total number of cases skyrockets to its peak within a few weeks. Infection curves with a steep rise also have a steep fall; after the virus infects pretty much everyone who can be infected, case numbers begin to drop…

What is going on? It seems the numbers are being manipulated concerning Covid-19.

Please Click on the following link to show the U.S. death rates since Trump took office by the year. It shows the number of deaths per thousand and the % increase and/or decrease in our population (which includes a lot of illegal aliens whose health is not known). These are total deaths (period.full.stop.). One would expect to see a huge spike in deaths for 2020 to date and yet we do not see that. So look at this graph and tell me what you think is going on because I am completely flummoxed by these numbers.
