'Silent Acquiescence to Evil'

During this time of the Synod, many effects have originated from it and many, if not most, have not been positive ones.
 The correlations between this country's politics and affairs of state are vastly similar to the ones at the Vatican. 

The Vatican, it would seem, is diminishing if not out right compromising the Catholic Faith by meddling into the structure and composition of the family and marriage; polarizing divorce; trivializing Confession and Holy Communion, etc... Why?

The Catholic Church is not supposed to compromise the Faith, its teachings and doctrines, especially of morality, to the whims of some of its members and, most of all,  to the Pope.  The games played by politicians and heads of state for control of the many, by the few, only result in loss of true liberty, life, and souls.
It is simple to answer because these modern day events are a by-product of Vatican II, and like St. Pius X once said in PASCENDI DOMINICI GREGIS, that Modernism is the "Synthesis of all heresies." 

speak out for truth and justice, and don't let anyone silence you. Be that person you wish would just stand up in society.: He enumerates further with...
"For it is madness to think that the sentiment of liberty, as it is now spread abroad, can surrender. Were it forcibly confined and held in bonds, terrible would be its outburst, sweeping away at once both Church and religion. Such is the situation for the Modernists, and their one great anxiety is, in consequence, to find a way of conciliation between the authority of the Church and the liberty of believers."
  One can ascertain, "Where does the lay person fit into all of this?" The laity can do much, but if we all sit on the side-lines and remain complacent and comfortable, then how does that show our enthusiasm and love for the game?

To quote a much beloved priest, "Catholicism is not a spectator sport!"

 Now comes the separation of the chaff from the wheat, the goat from sheep, the sheep from the wolf, and the wolf in sheep's clothing. It is an arduous and uncomfortable task, but it will be worth it in the end. By our Lady's intercession, it will not be too terrible.

Away Up Yonder

-The week of August 17th
Dear readers, the title is fitting because I am indeed “Away Up Yonder.” I “moved” to a town in the Upper-Midwest of the US this past week. This adventure of sorts is different for me than other activities I had been involved with in the past, namely living and working protractedly in another place other than in the West. I am leaving out the exact locations for privacy concerns, although I am open to discussing my new job. 
I will be working as a Floating Teacher for grades 1st-6th   in a Catholic school and will be picking up various subjects for each homeroom teacher of those grades. It will definitely be a different occupation than from what I am used to. I am happy that it is not too far from my Customer Service skill set, but yet so different. I am nervous, excited, thrilled and exhilarated by this new stage in my life.

 -September 5th, 2015
I survived the first week of school. I laugh at myself for being so paranoid about how things will go. I have a tendency to worry about the effects of something before it actually happens. Believe it or not, the first day turned out really well, as well as the subsequent days. Teaching seems so natural to me, at least I think it does. My colleagues and boss are great to work with and for. I’ve been so conscious of being prepared that when it came for this or for that class, it was essentially a breeze, in terms of administering the lesson and managing the flow of the class.
 Let’s see if I can say the same thing in 6 months.

Today is my dad’s 60th birthday!!! A massive shout out of wishes to my dad!! I love you, more than you know. 
I Skyped with my family and “celebrated” his birthday that way. I can’t imagine him being 60, he doesn’t look that old at all! Ah, such is fleeting the passage of time.

Pretty soon, I’ll be 4/16 of a hundredth-year-old, and I can get to call Neil Young’s song, Old Man, my own. And A*hem, Jeff, you can’t always claim this song to be yours! :)

Liberating Iraq

The founder of this organization was profiled on the Mark Levin Show. If it's endorsed by Mark during his actual air time, then it must be very important! 
There are countless atrocities being done daily to Catholics and Christians alike in the Middle East, which are not reported on by the media.

"Since ISIS took over Mosul, Iraq, thousands of women and children most of which are Yazidis and Christians have been brutally raped, abused, and sold as sex slaves. Whilst they are in captivity, they are being malnourished and are living in extremely inhumane conditions, being forced to sleep in cages at night."
 - Liberating

Let us help by donating to assist in giving freedom to these children. I donated. - for more information. - to donate.

I challenge you to donate too! If we can afford costly phone and cable TV plans, gasoline money, new clothes, etc.... We can afford at least to 'ransom the captives.'  It's an act of charity if you will.

It's a harsh reality, but we can help make a difference. 

Please share and tell all you know!

Are We Like The Ants?

Dear Readers,

In my last couple of postings, I briefly wrote about a book I recently read- ZOO by James Patterson. In a different annotation, not in terms of a thriller novel and at the present time, there seems to be a "zoo" plot of its own emerging in today’s society. 
If one keeps up with daily happenings and proceedings, one can get the general feeling there is a certain amount of tension, or anxiety intensifying in this country. From anti-police riots to the homosexual agenda sweeping the nation, we are in for quite a ride.

Principally, I am speaking about the anti-police riots, gay agenda, anti-Confederate flag, and what other offending thing, or fad ruling is prevalent at the given moment. When there are uprisings, either anti-police, anti-establishment, or bigotry disturbances, the most common type of rioters are the poor, seemingly oppressed, and rebel “peace-love-tolerance lovers”.

 These protesters, are fueled by racial, and or bigot rage wrought upon by the select influential few. This recaps the point made in the Patterson novel:  The animals blindly follow their abnormal instinctual behaviour, resulting from a mixture of outside sources.

Take this example and apply it to the Ferguson and Baltimore riots, and other forms of brutality directed towards police these last few months. I am sure that there are abuses that happen within police departments, but destroying a city to protest such things do not impress anyone to believe in and which to further their “cause”. It just means that they can act silly as an unruly child towards their parents.

Another prime example to note is the ‘across the board’ gay marriage ruling.
In another post, which you can read here, but I’ll share a part of it:

American culture screams tolerance towards these alternative lifestyles. While these "groups" maintain their "right" to free-speech and to other "implied freedoms", this debacle is hypocritical in nature. Whenever a Catholic politician, Christian business owner, citizen, etc. upholds their Godly convictions publicly, they are blasted as being hate-mongering, racist, a bigot, intolerant…”
I don’t know what is more ironic, or illogical? Many mainstream individuals don’t want religion interfering with their personal freedoms, more importantly of one who can love, or not love, and how one participates in it. BUT, they’ll graciously have the all-almighty American Government to decree and secure these “rights”. It’s another example of the State controlling the lives of its citizens, if ever so overtly. 

One last point I would like to make is the Confederate Flag fiasco. I didn’t know a flag could anger so many people. The most racial tension began when our beloved President Obama began talking cleverly about racial bigotry and insinuating motives for these “police brutalities," and the “oppressed” minorities. Haven’t my readers noticed that he is quite clever in speech? He appeals to many. 
The people are easily swayed by passing opinions, as a dandelion is swayed by the wind.

The sign of a wound healing is by not picking at it or digging deeper, but letting it heal and applying salve to it. Obama is a race baiter, and he is picking at the unfavorable wound more and more, causing more hurt, more pain, and more infection, which is indeed spreading rapidly throughout the body. 
That is why American Society has so much racial trepidation these days, not to mention other worries. Whites are pitted against African-Americans and vice versa. The common American is pitted against each other. Time-honored values are scoffed by the status quo. 
Traditional marriage (i.e. 1 man and 1 woman) is evermore cheapened by a Supreme Court Ruling, and mocked by its hypocritical constituents. Anything goes

Apparently it is more important to enforce the “rights” for gays and lesbians, and to abolish the Confederate Flag than it is to protect America’s sovereignty and morality. Are we that insane?

The Catholic Church is made to look like a fool. God is mocked. God-fearing folks are persecuted in deviant ways. We have a Pope who is a Marxist environmentalist. 
The promotion of a selfish, narcissistic, and self-gratifying way of thinking is currently happening.

Why are we blindly following the status quo? Have we become lemmings and sheep, dumbed down by our own folly?

No restraint. No self-control. No soberness. No sanity. No thinking. No accountability. No responsibility. No God.

Do what YOU want. Do what makes YOU happy. If it doesn’t affect ME, I don’t care what YOU do. Do what makes YOU feel good. I can marry who I want. I can love who I want. I can act how I want.

I don’t need any rules.

 I am free!

The slogan of today. 
The dream of the death spiral. The ants I saw once in Costa Rica. There was a circle in the sand. The squirming black whirlpool. Thousands and thousands of ants, all running together in an endless circle. Blindly, they follow each other, each one locked onto the pheromone trail of the ant in front of him. Running themselves in circles, circles. Running themselves to death. A closed loop. A snake biting its tail. A symbol of futility. Locked in their loop, the ants run around and around in circles-desperate, stupid, doomed."

 - James Patterson, Zoo
