"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Fukishima can't be fixed?

Chances appear to be slim...

"No one can say or know how this will play out, except that millions of people will probably die even if things stay exactly as they are, and billions could die if things get any worse."
Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome, fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT. 
Fukushima operator TEPCO wants to extract 400 tons worth of spent fuel rods stored in a pool at the plant’s damaged Reactor No. 4. The removal would have to be done manually from the top store of the damaged building in the radiation-contaminated environment.
In the worst-case scenario, a mishandled rod may go critical, resulting in an above-ground meltdown releasing radioactive fallout with no way to stop it, said Consolo, who is the founder and host of Nuked Radio. But leaving the things as they are is not an option, because statistical risk of a similarly bad outcome increases every day, she said. - Complete story here.

Some days it just feels as if the end is near, doesn't it?  The article cited speculates that northern Japan may be uninhabitable - while if things get worse, Tokyo would have to be evacuated - abandoned.  Makes me think of an old prophecy; "Many nations will be annihilated." 

I suppose every word would have to be analyzed to determine if such prophecies could mean the same thing in modern times.  It is impossible to determine the meaning of anything spoken or written these days.  Who can makes sense of anything today?  Like the following:

'The mainstream media, world governments, nuclear agencies, health organizations, weather reporters, and the health care industry has completely ignored three ongoing triple meltdowns that have never been contained' 

What does that even mean?

I'm sure all of it can be refuted and dismissed as so much hype.  It can't be tweeted.

  1. I don't understand why "many nations will be annihilated" is not interpreted to refer to World War II. 72 million dead, and dozens of nations left in total or near-total ruin.

    1. Hi Merc - maybe it does.

      I've missed you - how are you doing?

  2. Terry — while reading the new book by Jacobson titled Area 51, there is some facts stated from declassified documents about the contamination of this and surrounding areas from the nuclear testings that had been done in the '40's and '50's. Reading the information that was 'speculated' and 'took seriously', is surreal when one thinks that the government and science - techn companies kept sending 'family' and 'single' men into the area without full knowledge of the contamination that had a speculated life of 206,000+ years!


  3. The United States as we have known it is certainly being annihilated. Will we recognize it in another ten years? I hardly recognize it now. When I was child you never heard of the kind of random violence that has come to be accepted as an everyday occurrence. The breakdown of the family has left us in a state of chaos. We all need to take to heart the messages and requests of Our Lady of Fatima and pray the rosary daily for peace in the world.
