The above routine has given new meaning to the term routine. We are experiencing the inexplicable at a pace where one wonders if there will be space left for “normal” news in our lives anymore.
Though these tragic events cover the gamut from violent acts of nature to violent acts of man, they are all linked to a very alarming common denominator. In every single instance we are moved to solutions that involve more government and less freedom! Worse than that, these are largely power hungry opportunists, Secularists and Humanists intentionally steering the public debate as far from Truth as they possibly can for their own gain. Period! Please I challenge any of my Baby-Boomer peers reading this who can name me one school shooting incident from our childhood besides the one school tower sniper incident that occurred on some college campus…and I was a teenager when that happened!
What has changed between then and now? Are you going to tell me there were no guns then? THIS IS NOT ABOUT GUN CONTROL!!
This IS ALL about GOD CONTROL!! We do not have too many guns in our lives…
We have too little GOD in our lives!! And why would the Bloomberg’s of our world intentionally change the topic from God to Gun? “Without Religion the Government of a Free People Cannot be Maintained.” ~ 4th Principle of our Founders from The 5,000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen…that is exactly why! I would only add that to be successful, the tyrant must take both God & Gun!
We did not experience these horrors in our youth because in our youth we stood on consecrated soil. We were consecrated by the virtuous blessing of our Founders’ wisdom in recognizing the source of our inalienable rights and making that recognition a cornerstone of our founding documents along with the understanding that these principles are as fixed as the stars in the heavens…because while times may change, human nature does not! Sadly, this is no longer the case. Through our own apathy and complacency we have allowed the worst possible manifestations of creature to seize the public office!
We have slowly evolved or devolved into a society that has come to treat God, if we treat him at all, as the embarrassing relative who we do our gut level best to avoid except on certain occasions. We cover him up or remove him altogether from public places. We actually booed him on the floor of the Democratic Convention! We have taken it upon ourselves to destroy God’s greatest gift 55 million times since Roe V Wade…and we delude ourselves to believe there will be no price to pay? Can governments bail out souls too?
God stepped away in the beginning to give us life. He has stepped away again to give us something else. It is up to us to learn exactly what that means. He has provided us the tools. He has given us free will. The greatest tribute we can make to the children of Newtown is to turn away from the offered entitlements and empty promises of empty men and turn towards the Truth of God!
Pope Leo XIII’s Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel is prophetic. Composed over 100 years ago, and then suppressed, Pope Leo XIII’s original Prayer to St. Michael is a very interesting and controversial prayer relating to the present situation in which the true Catholic Church finds itself. On September 25, 1888, following his morning Mass, Pope Leo XIII became traumatized to the point that he collapsed. Those in attendance thought that he was dead. After coming to consciousness, the pope described a frightful conversation that he had heard coming from near the tabernacle. The conversation consisted of two voices – voices which Pope Leo XIII clearly understood to be the voices of Jesus Christ and the Devil. The Devil boasted that he could destroy the Church, if he were granted 75 years to carry out his plan (or 100 years, according to some accounts). The Devil also asked permission for “a greater influence over those who will give themselves to my service.” To the Devil’s requests, Our Lord reportedly replied: “you will be given the time and the power.” http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/2_LeoXIII.pdf
