Praying, and living, within our current circumstances as Catholics, and Christians, in America today, there are frequent times when words are overcome with frustration and anger and bewilderment at the blatant hijacking that our once great nation has experienced under the Obama administration. Seeking 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' but, rather, finding increasing death, tyranny, and the obscuring of the definition of true happiness--in relativism and secularism--what is a faithful person to do?
"The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because he intercedes for the holy ones according to God’s will." Romans 8:26-30
It is very painful to be an obedient Catholic and watch 'Catholic' politicians sabotage our 'pursuit of happiness' in Jesus Christ. Gethsemane has become a very real experience as current attempts at fulfilling the Will of God have become a potential public execution. This is true because, while taking a Pro-Life, Pro Traditional Marriage stance, along side our Constitutional and Judaeo-Christian brothers and sisters, it is becoming more and more a martyrs task every day. Raising our children, moreover, in this decadent, shallow, and deceitful environment, is like pushing our babies stroller through a minefield while blindfolded. Blinded, we need the Holy Spirit's assistance to plot our very next step.
"Look, answer me, O LORD, my God! Give light to my eyes that I may not sleep in death lest my enemy say, “I have overcome him”; lest my foes rejoice at my downfall." Psalm 13:4-6
Let's face it. Our Catholic/Christian brothers and sisters, under the demonic hypnosis of the Democratic party, are not seeking our best interests. They may play Catholic. But like the bad kid playing angel, they have a black hole of lies within their empty heart. I wonder: do Democrat Catholics go to confession? And if they do, do they confess supporting abortion and gay marriage? And if they then receive the Eucharist, do they stop being a Democrat, or do they continue to disobey the Father they just apologized to? Remember this very important point! The devil can appear as an angel of light. And a Democratic Catholic can do the very same. Don't be fooled.
"‘Lord, open the door for us.’ He will say to you in reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ And you will say, ‘We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.’ Then he will say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!’" Luke 13:22-30
But rest assured, as your frustration and anger and bewilderment cannot block the interceding Spirit, praying your hopes to God, so too, Jesus cannot be fooled by Democratic-Catholic-Christian angels of darkness. We can only pray that they repent. We can only witness to the Truth...even if it becomes our shed blood. Relax! Jesus has already shown us the Way.
