Goodness and Light, though the most powerful Presence in the world, are currently under attack, and (temporally) subjugated by a weaker nonexistence, manifest in malfeasance and darkness. The Catholic believer, those faithful ones who try with all their finite, yet weak, might to obey Church Teaching, while remaining faithful to their Lord, found most intimately in the Eucharist, are being crushed by an organized, strategic, ideological, bureaucratic, secularist, socialist, atheist, tyrannical, governmental, regime headed by the Supreme Idealogue in Chief, Barack Obama.
The freedom necessary for faith is under attack.
The Life necessary to exercise this freedom is being exterminated at this very moment.
And the Eucharist is being trampled under the tyrannist's boot as we sip our morning coffee.
"Stephen said to the people, the elders, and the scribes: 'You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always oppose the Holy Spirit; you are just like your ancestors...They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses laid down their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul...Now Saul was consenting to his execution." Acts 7:51--8:1
Not trying to sound too much like Archie Bunker (but passing north of age 50, it is inevitable), but ever since the 'spiritual and social revolution' of the 1960's, America has grown deaf to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Now all sorts of spirits have not only invaded our nation, but they have encamped themselves in our popular society, and, even, taken over our government.
For they are Legion.
Spirits which encourage abortion and euthanasia. Spirits which legitimize contraception, forced sterilization, and abortifacient chemistry. Spirits which rationalize and normalize gay 'marriage.' Spirits which force socialism upon a free people, and make those people so apathetic as to vote for it...twice! Spirits which enslave people in entitlements, and force religiously minded people to pay for things which go against their faith. Spirits which inspire class and racial warfare. Spirits which reward criminal activity in illegal immigration.
These very same spirits foster an apathy, lethargy, and disinterest in the Most Holy Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
"Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to give me safety. You are my rock and my fortress; for your name’s sake you will lead and guide me." Psalm 31:3-4, 6-8, 17, 21
Don't think that the Obama administration (see the BLM in Nevada) isn't capable of trampling the Catholic altar at high noon, interrupting the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, killing priests, and trampling the Eucharist, like when the tyrannists in El Salvador killed Archbishop Oscar Romero. Don't think that the Obama administration (or the continuation of it in the Hillary administration) isn't capable of the mass murdering of our clergy, necessary for the Eucharist, like what happened to Father Miguel Pro in Mexico. Don't think that the Obama administration cannot grow to such a behemoth dimension that it won't crush Catholicism like what occurred in Stalin's Russia, or in Hitler's Germany.
Or, maybe, the Obama administration will show 'mercy' on us and let us worship in a puppet church like the one currently in Communist China.
The Catholic Church is our Home, our Mother, because she holds the Lord in her womb in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist.
"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'” John 6:30-35
Starve the people of the Bread of Life and you will have a population willing to eat just about anything to survive. And that's what's happening now.
