  1. Does that include hatred and violence against those who, in the name of God, do hatred and violence?

    A huge part of my despair is that I see zero will in some quarters to do what it will take to preserve either secular humanism or Catholicism from the coming storm.

    • Ted you”re right that these are anxiety-making times, but in one way or another, all times have their anxiety-making aspects. We only see a small fragment of the overall picture, which began before creation and goes on into eternity. Our lives in this life are a sliver of time which do to reflect in any way the scope of things. Don’t despair. Jesus is the author of all life and we are in His hands. As St John Paul II told us, Do Not Be Afraid.

      • St John Paul II actually fought back against the Communists. He inspired a generation to do away with the easy lies and embrace the hard work of building the Kingdom of God.

        As of late, when faced with the threat Jihadi Islam presents, we have been avoiding the battle. We call a President who is actually engaging the problem crazy for saying what the problem actually is. We let them execute a terrorist attack every month for the last 48 months, and do NOTHING to end WWIII.

        We have been fighting this battle for 20 years, since the bombing of the USS Cole. Pacificism has not worked. So yes, I am very afraid when we make statements that indicaye the we should just roll over and take it.

  2. Just checked Patheos again after a couple of months and realized you’re back, and have been for a little while! Welcome! I missed you. Am going back and read your November posts!
