Inflation in the Nation

Over at Inside Catholic, Brian Saint-Paul talks the Federal Reserve, Inflation and Duck Tales.

No, really. Start with this video:

Then go read his “Money Meltdown” interview with Tom Woods.

We’re in big trouble – on all sides, politically, socially, spiritually – pick a battle and start working. Support it all on a foundation of prayer and something good may come of your efforts.

This week Buster and I talked about coming threats, implosions and take-overs, and I told him again: psalmody, psalmody, psalmody!

Pray the psalms – use it as your base. I hold it to be true – if you pray the psalms every day, you cannot help but grow in wisdom and the confidence that all things work to the Glory of God. Do it here, or here, do it with your iPhone or catch them when you can, but praying the psalms daily will give you a sense of the long-view, and we need that. The long-view – and the understanding that there are illusions before us, always, masquerading as reality – is what keeps one fit, aware of more than “the day’s news” and fairly at peace.

And pray the rosary with me, if you’re so inclined. You’d be amazed at what it does to your whole outlook, if you let it.

Ask for the grace of prayer, of being able to pray, of loving to pray. It’s one of those prayers God always says “yes” to.

The world needs all the prayers it can get.

    Support it all on a foundation of prayer and something good may come of your efforts.

    A word of caution: Good may indeed come from it, but that good might not come in this world, other than to give us hope of the next.

    Other countries have driven themselves down into the pits of Hell and, if the United States is going to adopt the same policies, attitudes, and ideologies as they have adopted, there is no reason to believe that we will be spared such a fate. Prayer does not promise you a worldly paradise, but it does promise that, as you carry a thousand crushing crosses upon your back, He will be there with you.

    [Yes, I should have thrown the caveat out there: sometimes you don't always recognise the good immediately! Admin]

    Wise counsel, Anchoress. My wife and I have made it a Lenten devotion to read the Psalms each morning with our toast and coffee. It is uncanny how, almost without fail, the Psalm appointed seems to suit our moods, the weather, the news of the day.

    It is good to have a source of comfort, as our country veers wildly between tragedy and farce. I feel that, should President Obama don a pair of gigantic, floppy shoes, pick up an Ah-Ooga horn and start pedaling a tiny bicycle around the Oval Office, he could scarcely demean the office any more than he already has.
