No More Dancing With the Devil

By Charlie Johnston

What do you do when you find an opponent is consistently dealing in bad faith? You quit negotiating, for you can rely on nothing he says. It is all a lie designed to manipulate and destroy. When you get to that point, the only reasonable option is to ignore everything he says and demand his unconditional surrender.

The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha revealed that, contrary to almost unanimous corporate media reports, Rittenhouse acted solely in self-defense. The media knew their lies were just that – and have only doubled down on them because they hate this boy ideologically. Within a half hour of looking at the video of the Covington kids a few years ago, it was obvious that they were not the aggressors, but the victims. But they were conservative so the media smeared them, knowing it was a lie. By May of 2017, it was clear – and every senator knew – that Russian collusion was a lie and a fantasy. Yet they knowingly kept up the smear for ideological reasons for years to come. The media and the left are excited about the bizarre persecution of Project Veritas, of Steve Bannon, and of the Justice Department defining parents who complain at school board meetings as domestic terrorists. These people are not misguided, they are not merely wrong, they have given themselves over to evil and become acolytes of the father of lies.

Exorcists are advised to avoid extraneous conversations with the possessed, for the devil merely uses such to spread confusion and accomplish his own aims. We are now at that point with those who have no concern for truth, honor, or facts, but want only to use rhetoric as a tactic to spread confusion and accomplish their own aims. That includes all of the left, the corporate media, and, sadly, the once-honorable Democratic Party. There is no point to discussion with them and much risk in it. They simply must be stopped.

We see this will to power instinct in something as innocuous as the response to Covid. Just 30 years ago, all Americans and the media would have howled in outrage if any party had tried to do what the Democratic Party insists on doing. What do we know – from public health officials – about the “vaccines?” First, that they are not vaccines at all, but experimental therapeutics. Second, that they neither confer immunity to the disease nor prevent transmission, but merely mitigate some symptoms. Third, that the price for such mitigation is a dramatic increase in deaths and other serious injuries from the therapeutic called “vaccines.” How many deaths? We don’t know for sure as public health officials and the government have actually tried to suppress that information and punish doctors who report such deaths and injuries. Despite this, we do know that there have been far more deaths in this last year from the therapeutic than from all actual vaccines combined from the last 31 years. So do the government and public health authorities run from this therapeutic in terror? No, they insist on mandating it for everyone, including children for whom it confers NO benefit and dramatically increases the risk of death and injury for the child. Meanwhile, idiotic, virtue-signaling parents who cannot read a data set and are unwilling to even consider serious evidence from serious sources will risk their children’s lives in order to show how trendily smart they are. “Smart” because they have chosen an officially preferred narrative, not because they actually know anything. Meanwhile, many doctors are not really scientists, but merely exotic cable installers – not knowing the principles behind what they practice, but only what officials tell them to do. Meantime, a growing number of doctors actually do understand the lie that is being pushed. Some heroically fight back – and risk their licenses and careers because of it. More go along so as not to lose their job or career – and so become complicit in the gathering holocaust. This anti-intellectual will to power is nakedly evil.

Meanwhile, much of our religious leadership has collapsed into ignorance, superstition and collaboration with the authoritarians. It is a sorrowful thing for this Catholic to have to acknowledge that neither the Pope nor Vatican authorities nor many Bishops are reliable defenders of the faith or the faithful any longer. They just say whatever they want to accomplish what they want with no regard for consistency or docility to ancient apostolic and Scriptural teaching.

Take the assault on the traditional Latin Mass. The Pope does have disciplinary authority to suppress it for grave reasons, but to declare it invalid means that for 500 years, Catholics celebrated an invalid form of Mass. That simply cannot be. But what else to expect from a Pope who insists it was right and proper to put an offering to a pagan goddess, Pachamama, on the altar of Christ? It was blasphemy and the abomination which causes desolation. Within months after it was done, the Mass, itself, was suppressed throughout the world – often with the bewildered (and sometimes even eager) collaboration of Bishops who took a solemn oath to defend Christ and His people to the death. The Pope usually says the right things about life. But in the company of pro-abortion public officials, he is jovial and all smiles – while in the company of pro-life public officials, he is dour and condemnatory. If you want to know who a man is, listen to what he says but, more importantly, pay attention to what he does. A few years ago my daughter in a phone conversation with me asked with puzzlement, “Dad, about this Pope…” Before she could finish I told her all the things I taught her about the faith when she was little are still true and not to worry about it. In real relief, she said, “I thought so, but I figured I better check with you.”

I am not sure how to deal with this. The Priests who have been my most trusted guides over the last 30 years are all Priests of Opus Dei. Opus Dei prides itself on its fidelity to the Magisterium and its loyalty to the Holy Father. A quarter of a century ago I told them it was quite easy to be loyal to Pope John Paul, but they should begin to prepare themselves for a time when it would be very difficult to balance their legitimate duty of obedience with their legitimate duty of fidelity to the Gospel and the Magisterium – and that they should begin preparing for that balancing act right then. I think a lot of very good Priests and Bishops are often paralyzed because of this very problem and are genuinely trying to find what is right.

As for me, I privately think this Pope has become a scourge against the faithful – perhaps in punishment for our own faithlessness for so long. I pray regularly for his conversion – and while I would not disobey a legitimate order from him that was within the sphere of his legitimate authority, I do not rely on him to defend or define the faith or the faithful. I look to the Church Fathers, great saints, orthodox Bishops and Priests and the authentic Magisterium for that. Meantime, I trust the Lord who says that the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church to let this scourge continue through its appointed time and then gather the faithful back again with nothing being lost. And if Francis finds his way to the road to Damascus, I will rejoice – but I don’t rely on it.

The bottom line is that the devil has now launched his sustained and intense confrontation against the faith, the faithful, the culture, family, and the very concept of free will. I will no longer engage with the great liar or his acolytes. I’m not the only one who has noticed how suddenly stark things have become. Both serious Christians and serious Jews have started to realize, with some surprise – but serious resolve – that we have reached a strange tipping point no one expected to come upon us so quickly.

My focus has shifted dramatically during my illness. I am no longer concerned about engaging with people and institutions which deal in bad faith. They have become acolytes of evil. Rather, I seek to disengage with them and fight with the only acceptable terms being their unconditional surrender. I pray that for many that will involve their repentance and conversion. I am not sure how that all will look, but I am convinced it is the only way forward now. We have, indeed, reached the time St. John Paul foretold as Cardinal Wojtyla back in Philadelphia in 1976:

“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously.”

Let us take up the trial with courage and steady resolve. When we do, God will show us the way forward. My priority now is to find that way and serve the Lord and my fellows.

  1. Legendary times, indeed. Perhaps, the tipping point coming upon us so swiftly is a mighty blessing of God, and it will, thus, find us with all the fortitude we need and can muster -via the daily grace which falls on us as morning dew – if we but ask as Our Mother, the Stella Maris, taught us to do by way of her counsel given to St. Catherine Labouré. This swiftly arriving tipping point may well be a harbinger of a verrrry intense labor as we are both birthed and co-create in the Birth of a New Beginning.

  2. In this life, based upon our choices, we already begin to manifest heaven or hell.   “God told me that souls receive the “earnest money” of the next life while still on this earth.  Those who do evil already experience the “earnest money of hell,” while the servants of the Lord “taste the earnest money of eternal life.”   
    St. Catherine of Siena in her Dialogue.

    Already in this life, we begin to sing the song of the angels, or we begin to rage with the demons.

  3. Hi Charlie, my first thought on reading this was “oh good, Charlie’s better now.” I’m so glad you’re on the mend now. Thank you for this posting. We are in scary times. I can’t believe the number of parents willing to give their kids over to be jabbed. It’s all too much. I’ve been rereading my Flame of Love book and trying to spend more time in prayer for salvation of souls. St. Joseph pray for us.

      Regarding the rhetorical technique within the abusive relationship (never respond on the topic, rather address the accusser directly) while I do see this in the rank and file publications, I am not convinced that the “conservative leadership” does not enjoy dishing out the abuse too. That is, I believe that many in the conservative leadership are abusers too.

  5. Could not agree more with all that Charlie explained so well here. And I agree with you Beckita that there may indeed be a benefit to, ” the tipping point coming upon us so swiftly,” so that the acceleration,” is a mighty blessing of God.”

    The lurch of American society away from reliance on traditional values, such as reliance on God and Christianity, support of the parental family as the foundation of a healthy society, and steady improvement in race relations, began in the Obama Presidency. Trump managed some restoration of American traditional values, but now the Biden Administration, fully supported by media and large corporations, and an outright evil health bureaucracy effectively led by the criminal Fauci, have gone so far Left so fast, that the public is catching on that Biden the Grifter in Chief is leading the country
    to anarchy. Rioters burning cities and attacking the police are honored, but a little boy trying to defend against them is vilified with blatant lies. Girls are forced to compete against males who claim they prefer thought of as female. Grade school girls are forced to share toilet rooms with such fe-males, even when they get raped, and objecting parents are classified by the DoJ as domestic terrorists. Illegal are allowed to flood over our borders, and will be expanding the welfare roles enormously so the DemoRats may gain additional votes at taxpayer expense. Insanely high trillion dollar bills are passed that devalue the dollar causing high inflation with a reduced living standard shoved at us as the price of being “fair.’ Trump left office with the USA outproducing the rest of the world in oil and natural gas, but the DemoRats have curtailed production to support a phony Green religion, and they are actually pleased to see fossil fuels pricing go high, so that their unreliable and expensive renewable sources, Solar and wind, might compete.

    So yes, the evil mob has moved so fast that ordinary folks have not been able to adapt to their crazy, evil values. Recent elections, and current polling indicate that Independents and even many traditional Democrat voters, including minorities are inclined to vote against Democrats. The ’22 election now looks sure to create a Republican majority in the House, and possibly in the Senate. The Democrats lack any obvious candidate for Presidency in ’24, with Harris poling even worse than Biden, and at the lowest levers ever. The very excesses of this new Left mob are leading to the public outing them soon from office and power.

    1. Great summary, Jack! Of course Charlie’s analysis is always so informative and spot on! It’s a strange feeling that we know you’re correct, Charlie, and it doesn’t sound like good news, but at least some of us in this life believe the truth, so we’re “in it together” and not standing alone!! The latter part is the good news. Additionally, more people seem to be waking up. Come, Lord Jesus!

  6. After several generally unpleasant conversations with people who trust the Covid authorities and believe that they are acting in our best interests, I too have come to the conclusion that further discussion is futile. Public opinion polling in Canada shows that 70% of the population is a-okay with the unvaxxed all losing their jobs. There seems to be no “magic words” that will open peoples’ eyes; minds are made up and no amount of data will change them. Prayer and fasting is the only avenue forward at present.

  9. For the first time in my life, I have to ponder the limits of obedience, and the limits of the papacy. Even as recently as March, 2020, obedience to the Bishop or the Pope was understood as a great blessing and a haven of peace in the life of any priest. Certainly, obedience to the Bishop and to the Church was a foolproof imitation of Christ, who went to the cross not out of poverty, nor chastity, but out of obedience. However, since the COVID church closings–which were pitched to us as a two-week emergency measure designed to slow the spread of the yet-unknown effects of a mysterious new virus–many priests have come to realize that obedience to the Bishop must have limits. No longer can we simply obey the Pope and the Bishop, as we once joyfully did. Now, we must attempt to discern whether or not our Church leadership is acting within its proper sphere of authority, or even, competence. It is a very distressing situation, for many priests, and struck us without warning. Personally, I can easily envision defying the Bishop in such matters as church closures, vaccine mandates, contact tracing, or any other number of possible mis-uses of ecclesiastical authority. Don’t get me started on the Latin Mass either. I think the attempt to suppress something as ancient as that Mass makes about as much sense as banning Advent, or suppressing the observance of Christmas. The next abuse of authority could likely be something we have not yet envisioned. As it stands, your priest now carries an extra burden as he no longer can rely on the authority or the protection of his local Bishop. We’re walking one step at a time, and leaning on Christ like never before.

    1. The great thing about it Victura is that we really have to think about it and come to our conclusions with a healthy fear of the Lord. No more easy platitudes. The Lord intends something with that. And how I pray for all you dear Priests and Bishops who are trying to find the right way through a veritable minefield these days. God bless and keep you!

    2. Our obedience to a once honored group of people we used to hold in high esteem by virtue of their authority has been put to the test. Many people in positions of power/authority/celebrity/esteem have been exposed as nefarious (to put it kindly) and ordinary people are slowly but surely insisting that obedience be warranted and not guaranteed. We are walking the similar paths and greatly need our dear priests to bring us the unrestricted Mass and Sacraments to strengthen us for the journey. I have doubled down in prayers daily for our church and clergy. ❤

      1. Hi, Linda. I’m not sure if I can, since I thought it was pretty self-explanatory. 🙂

        I guess I could say that each of us has a choice every day about what we will focus our attention and activity on. Looking at the System of the World, I could get involved with it, perhaps spend my time working to save it or cushion the fall. However, it’s becoming eminently clear to us all that that System is so corrupted that it cannot and should not be saved. Once you come to that conclusion, then why would you put any effort into saving it?

        I have two primary focus points these days.

        One is preparing a lifeboat for myself to get through the worst of this, which I think will occur between now and next May. I’m also helping others prepare their lifeboats to the extent I can (which is not much), and with my articles on Covid and on the vaxxxes, I am helping people survive until a new system of the world can arise or God can intervene to save them (particularly the vaxxxed). If I were not taking care of my mother, I would still not leave my current location until next summer. I’ll help this Next Right Step community and my local community, but traveling for fun is not gonna happen.

        Another is starting to look at what can be done to begin building the new systems we will need after the worst is over. People everywhere will be at a loss as to what to do. What are all the nurses and doctors who are resigning from the Hospital System going to do? When the Biden Administration falls, and our local governments fail, and nobody can pay taxes (or wants to), how will we govern ourselves?

        If we all walk away from the System, it cannot survive and will crash. As it crashes, we will need to create/build lifeboats to take us through that collapse. And if we all want a better world afterward, why sit around after quitting that System? Why not start early on making things better?

From my not too deep knowledge of US history I understand the Democratic Party has pretty much always been playing on and inciting racial tensions and hatred to stay in power, from KKK times until now…

    What a contrast!Pope Francis and Biden tandem vs. John Paul and Reagan tandem…

    And some (if not many) instead of being the last line of defense for the faithful became the very first line of attack launched against the faithful ( hello Mr. Cupich and unfortunately Papa Francesco too :/)…

    Yes, no more negotiations. That’s why we need to invoke St. Michael the Archangel to deal with this crap, not a surprise the prayer to this Archangel has been eliminated in many churches this year. Not only are we at war in the cultural sphere but first and foremost we are in a spiritual war. We got to invoke St. Michael the Archangel. I hope to post in the coming months one of my amateur piano compositions titled “St. Michael the Archangel”. I hope St. Michael the Archangel is ok with that…

      Amen, Pawel. We’ve come a looooong way in less than 40 years! And to the great duo above can be added Margaret Thatcher, with her common sense and unflinching approach both to Soviet communism’s evil and to the then-gestating power of what would all too soon become the European “Union” – basically a front for the NWO and soft communism. The hatred that poured forth at her death, mainly from brats who weren’t even born or were still getting their ****s wiped when she left power in 1990, is an ugly symptom of the degeneracy that has overtaken a once-great society.

      I apply that to all of Western society, in particular this wretched dump where I currently live, which has now reverted to panic mode at the “spike” in cases. Oh the horror! 100 years ago, we were concluding the fight for independence from the greatest Empire in the world, and now we’re cowering in terror, wailing for Big Daddy to give us back the comfort blanky and keep the bedside light on ‘cos, ‘cos… waaaahhhh!!!!

The “prayer at the foot of the Altar” in the old/ever-living liturgy as we used to say it in the 1965 translation we had on this side of the big pond says it all:

      “Q. I had attended a nearby Catholic church for more than 20 years. But now I have been driving 40 minutes to another parish because of changes to restore “old traditions” at my local parish.

      One of them is the common recitation of the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel immediately after Mass. I find it inappropriate to speak of St. Michael and Satan right after we have been charged to “go in peace to love and serve the Lord.”

      At my former parish, I felt hostage to a small minority who tried to control my post-Mass thoughts and feelings instead of letting me leave Mass with the joy of the Eucharist.”

I pray regularly for his conversion – and while I would not disobey a legitimate order from him that was within the sphere of his legitimate authority, I do not rely on him to defend or define the faith or the faithful.”

    Benedict XVI was right to recalibrate some of the faithful’s false expectation that every word uttered and every action performed by a pope would be impeccable;
    “The post-Pentecost Peter… is that same Peter who, for fear of the Jews, belied his Christian freedom (Galatians 2 11–14); he is at once a rock and a stumbling-block. And has it not been thus throughout the history of the Church that the Pope, the successor of Peter, has been at once Petra and Skandalon—both the rock of God and a stumbling block?” —POPE BENEDICT XIV, from Das neue Volk Gottes, p. 80ff

    1. Reminds me of today’s sports fans. Jesus didn’t dress us with official team gear and teach us to yell, fist-pump, eat and drink in the stands. He actually invited us onto to the field to get dirty, sweat and bleed with Him.

      It’s the difference between pride and humility… defeat and Victory.

      Shoot, not even the refs can seem to make a call anymore and stand by it without a lengthy review and instant replay. It’s ruined sports. Might as well replace them all with computers and AI.

      I miss the simple side yard and sandlot, without all the trappings and fanfare.

  13. I offer these three excellent, hope-filled resources today for anyone experiencing grief. Although Gary’s video is pointed towards those of us who have lost beloved family members, it’s application is universal to any difficult loss. (loss of life as we knew it from Covid, etc) Life is about loss/change and grief is something all humanity shares as a common denominator.

    Let us keep our eyes focused firmly on Our Lord and never doubt His tender mercy! +God bless us, Everyone!+

    Dear Apostles of the Returning King and Friends,

    Anne received this sixth and final message in a series of new locutions from Jesus directed toward the Church. We invite you to prayerfully reflect on what this instruction is asking of you, and please consider sharing it widely.

    Jesus To The Church

    What do I ask of my Church? What do I want? Have you asked yourself this question? Have you wondered, reflected, and prayed about this question? I am telling you what I want. I want the children of the Church who have left our assembly called back into it by my hopeful and loving representatives. This is my Church, after all. I do not separate people from me, of course. They separate themselves from me. Do not be the one who acts as my representative but also drives someone away from our family.

    A family makes room for all of its members, even if they are suffering in ways that cause them to look their worst. Often within the family there is protection for a person who is vulnerable and hurting. This is exactly where those members can experience safety while they recover. The family is a safe place, comprised of people who cannot reject each other because of their duty to each other. We, together, have a duty to protect others who are confused or wounded until they find their way out of confusion or pain. Do we want them out in the world without our help? Or do we want them close to us, where we may be able to assist them in recovery? When human hope appears to be lost, that is the precise moment to trust me the fullest with those for whom you intercede and those for whom you fear the most.

    I ask for a spirit of humility. We serve the Father together, facing him and then offering him and his love to the world. My followers must strive very hard to resemble me, speaking of me and of the love of the Creator. Speak of mercy and show mercy. Trust me aloud so that others will also trust me. Express my love through your laughter and confidence in the next world. Talk about all that is good. Search for all that is good. The enemy, our enemy, wants to obscure the wonderful developments in the world which are prompted by me and in which I place unlimited seeds of hope. Can you name these developments? Do you seek them out? Will you recognize them when you see them? My friends, my fellow servants of the Father, be confident now as never before. I am with you and together we will renew my Church. She will then take her place in the world as the greatest voice of hope. All of our voices combined will sing praise to the Father and this will draw others to our family, where we can help keep them safe from despair.

    I love you and I rely heavily on your fidelity to me and to my Church.

  14. Blessings on all,
    Sorry Charlie, I agree with and applaud almost everything you say, but here I have to disagree. I liked Harry Truman, but JFK was the first traitor to his faith. He along with some complicit bishops crafted the politically expedient phrase “well I’m personally opposed to abortion, but I can’t tell others what to do” or some such wording. This opened the door to abortion in the minds of many people who like you thought he was great. Now another “Catholic” president has just opened the floodgates to this horrendous crime. His support and funding and defense of it, including the end of the Hyde amendment, has encouraged the murderous crowd to such an extent that we have celebrities bragging about their abortions. There is no shame left. I have surmised that this has been a little bit of the devil’s finger in the eye of the faithful. Both the beginning and fulfillment of this evil he has put a “Catholic” bookend.

    1. Alas, you are mistaken on your facts. JFK did NOT participate in crafting that expedient phrase and NEVER supported abortion. The phrase was largely crafted by former NY Governor Mario Cuomo. There WAS a meeting at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport in 1964, almost a year after Pres. Kennedy had been murdered, where some theologians led by Jesuits explained to the remaining family how they could accept and promote abortion with a “clear conscience.” There are certainly reasons you can disagree with me about JFK, but the reason you have cited simply is not true. I am sure it is just a mistake on your part, and Lord knows I have made such mistakes more than a few times in my life, but we must take great pains to avoid giving false witness.

    God bless Bishop Ricken. I’m grateful he blessed us at the Encounter 2020 Conference in Toledo, Ohio, along with 90 priests who were all crying out, in word and deed, for Holy Spirit to descend anew upon each of them, that they be strengthened and filled with holy boldness for proclaiming and living Christ’s Teachings.

  16. Good Morning Brother Charlie and to all the humble and the faithful souls to Jesus of CORAC!

    And brother Charlie, what you say below is very defining:

    “As for me, I privately think this Pope has become a scourge against the faithful – perhaps in punishment for our own faithlessness for so long. I pray regularly for his conversion – and while I would not disobey a legitimate order from him that was within the sphere of his legitimate authority, I do not rely on him to defend or define the faith or the faithful. I look to the Church Fathers, great saints, orthodox Bishops and Priests and the authentic Magisterium for that. Meantime, I trust the Lord who says that the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church to let this scourge continue through its appointed time and then gather the faithful back again with nothing being lost. And if Francis finds his way to the road to Damascus, I will rejoice – but I don’t rely on it.”

    I’m sure you speak for a ton and more of Catholics who feel the exact same way. You really do have a gift from Heaven for putting in written word, and with surgical precision, the essence of spiritual matters that many hold intimately and ear to our mind, bodies and souls. In the Lakota language, I say to you, “Wopila Pilamayelo!”, which means, A BIG THANK YOU!

They will be compulsory for almost every public venue including churches. Must be scanned on every entry. So far, supermarkets will be excused. Only valid for six months because of the “necessity” for booster injections. Separate vaccine passports will be required for international travel.”

      Of course, Lucifer is their ultimate taskmaster, as shown in the partially obscured “666” within their logo ( Whether or not the planners are aware of Satan’s influence is irrelevant. There are no moral constraints to be obeyed. Their goal? That eventually every knee should bow before their demonic master.

      However, despite their earthly power and influence, their almost total control over the media, and their proven ability to manipulate a large majority of the earth’s population into taking a potentially deadly injection, a greater Prince than him will come to redeem us!

    1. Bill Gates has also paid MIT to develop the below linked Quantum Digital Tattoo. It’s an invisible mark, a QR Code, that would be placed on your body to identify you and keep track of your vaccine status. It can be read by an infra-red scanner on a phone, or by any other scanning device. There are multiple disturbing elements to all these tracking methods.

      Allowing the government to track and store your daily activity is disturbing enough. The trouble with these ideas is that they can so easily be used to prevent unvaccinated people, such as yours truly, from purchasing items at brick-and-mortar and even online stores. This Quantum Digital Tattoo is in a UPC format. Consequently, it will contain the number 666 as part of its layout. An even more comforting thought; the invisible “ink” used for the tattoo is a fluid named “Luciferase”. That’s hard for even me to believe, but unfortunately it’s the truth. I just can’t wait to line up and get one of these …. just joking of course.

Charlie was totally exhausted after his first outing to a book store early this week and he slept much afterward. It’s the nature of a long recovery to have hard days and easier days. Surely he’s much better than when he arrived in my fair city, and in electronic print, we “hear” our dear Sherpa as if he’s completely recovered, but no he is not. Let’s continue to pray for him as he carries on in convalescing and completely recovers.

    Well, you are right on. I post the following link of an article that I received today that highlights the evil that our hospital system and medical profession has sunk to. We all need to be prepared not to go to the hospital if possible.

    Our priest has told us that if anyone must go to the hospital, we are to call and see him first because there is a huge possibility that the hospital will not allow a priest into see you while you are in the hospital.

May we each remain steady and calm, even as we are fervent in our petitions for protection, conversion and the salvation of all. We know God has been and will continue to tamp down the consequences of our sins as a collective whole – and such a mess we have made – in this era now ending as we transition into a New Beginning. Sobering as it is, Our Lady of Akita has forewarned that the good will die along with those who have chosen to reject God. I continue to pray Romans 14:8: “If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.” I look at my large extended family, knowing that most have taken the jab, and seeing that the violence which is cresting around the world must surely visit this nation as we live in this tipping point and, of course, I pray that each one repents and returns fully to the Lord, but I am of a mindset that even more important than each one continuing to live through the brutal days ahead of us, is that each one is born to Eternal Life in Christ.

  32. Amen. God sends his angels and saints to shield us while we live and as we die from the evil, the pain and agony of brutal incidents. I’ve twice been injured severely, on the brink of death, and have had all traces of the accidents, even the pain of the impact of the trauma by divine intercession lovingly erased from my memory. My family witnessed first hand my wounds and listened to me wail for days and weeks while. Little did they know I was being guarded and held peacefully in the light of our heavenly advocates the whole time. God is good. We will witness so much more torment and must trust that God is caring for us at every moment even and I believe especially during the most horrific ones. Some of our “ambulance” work will no doubt be spiritual first aid for others and ourselves in the midst of the chastisements. Like we are instructed in air travel, in the event of a crisis concerning air quality, put your mask on first and then help others. May we remain strong in faith and well sustained with the Holy Mass, Sacraments and our reliance on God in all things.
    There are countless testimonies of God’s providence from our brethren still on earth. Then we have the saints who were brave in the face of it all, by the grace of God, thankfully as our models. St. Miguel Pro, St. Philomena, St. Lawrence, St. Joan of Arc to name a few. Terror is from the devil, and trust is of God. Onward in trust. ❤

The updated – as of November 15th of this month – info on the Queensland Government website reaffirms that international travelers, upon their arrival, must quarantine for 14 days. This is not uncommon in most countries today, nonsense as it is, so these aren’t internment type camps at all. That said, Australia DOES have a mess on their hands as the brutal police force meet people on the streets of many cities across Australia while they protest the vaxx mandates.
