Biden’ Our Time

“Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity…”
W.B. Yeats

No, the Center cannot hold. We must stand for something.

“If you be neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth” (Revelations 3:16).

These past several years we have seen the world turned every way but right. The old maxim, divide and conquer, has proven to be so right. Neighbor against neighbor, child against parent, teacher against student, nation against nation and leaders against their own people. There is an Evil creeping amongst us and It has turned everything upside down. What was good is now bad. What was strength is now weakness. Loyalty has fallen victim to ambition. We have been betrayed.

Hopefully, and I believe it to be so, more and more of us Americans and people throughout the world are realizing that something has gone terribly wrong with our countries and our cultures. And of our common sense and common decency. It has gone beyond mere politics. Just today on a local web site for our little town of Staunton, VA someone posted that they would like to slap the face everyone that wont get the Covid injection. This makes about as much sense as saying that although they buckle up every time they get into their cars they would assault everyone choosing not to wear a seat belt. If an injection or a seat belt makes you safe, how does someone choosing differently impact you? It makes no sense. But, common sense, discernment and civility have been increasingly cast to the wind for some time now.

In the biography of Don Bosco by Teresio Bosco, (click) Audio bio of Don Bosco) it is written, “God, it is said, sends the world saints when they are most needed-not men and women of “general holiness,” but specialized experts who fit into the pattern of the times and are capable of giving God’s tone to their century”.

Surely, these times cry out for another Fulton Sheen or Billy Graham. Even the witty wisdom of Will Rogers would serve us well: “It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble, it’s what we know that ain’t so”. Or, “ What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds”. (Brainyquote.com)

We have bid our time for long enough. This past week has shown us that each and every one of us is disposable and expendable. We are at the brink. To put it another way: (click) Sympathy for the Devil.

Pray. Pray that God will not let us continue to go astray but will send us a modern-day saint that will guide us back to Him.

    Discernment is not allowed because they think Americans are too stupid to make decisions. My son’s college is again encouraging/mandating/forcing students to get poked to meet their (probably gov’t incentivized) goal. And they’re offering free donuts! Wow. Donuts vs an untested vaccine with endless side effects. It’s a choice I hope they can all make, because without choice, there is no freedom. And you’re right; the anger and violence of those who want to slap others for not falling into compliance with their choice is pure evil.

      Kerbey, Well, who could resist a donut!

      The frenzy that some have worked themselves into about Everything has been unmatched since the scenes of the whirling dervish in the classic movie, “The Four feathers”. We’ll just ride it out, resist when necessary and pray.

    Well said Bill. So much going on and so much more to come. Hopefully the people around the world will decide to open their eyes and acknowledge the evil that has been roaming and haunting the planet for centuries and turn their attention and hearts to our Creator. I believe that only the strong in Spirit will survive the change that is upon all of humanity. Blessings to all.

    Well said Bill. We must speak now or lose the right to speak. A mental illness caused by fear seems to be gripping the world. Lord help us!
