Bayside seer, Veronica Lueken
There are so many similarities to
how public 'visionaries'
act today during 'ecstasy'.
Fr. L and Mark Shea and many others are predicting four years of badness after the elections.
Charlie Johnston has been predicting THE Storm for years - details might be off - but ...
All the mystics say so too.
Then a friend sent me this:
It's our choice. We have been going towards this, little by little for decades. Choice by choice.
When God, in the beginning, created man, he made him subject to his own free choice. If you choose you can keep the commandments ... it is loyalty to do his will. There are set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand. Before man are life and death, whichever he chooses shall be given him. - Sirach 15:14-17It's our choice. It's never more apparent than during an election.
Avoid the echo chamber online - it simply adds to the confusion.
If you are worried about what is happening, read the stories of people who know what they are talking about - people of faith who have been through war and terror and persecution. Read people like Alfred Delp SJ, Walter Ciszek SJ, Corrie Ten Boom, Immaculee Ilibagiza, and others - these people have lived through events so horrible, yet they witnessed to their faith in Jesus. Their witness is an example for all to live by.
"Strive to enter through the narrow gate" - and quit complaining.
Only recently have I learned to be grateful to have grown up with abuse and anti-Catholic taunts, even from my own family. To have experienced mockery for my devotion, to be laughed at for trying to live according to Catholic teaching, and called out as a hypocrite for having failed to do so - and rightly so. Yet what a grace all of that is - it seems to have prepared me to not be surprised when confronted by all the 'turmoil' so many fear and complain about today. It has helped me not to become disquieted when similar taunts recur today.
"Optimism and pessimism are twin forms of self-deception. We need instead to be a people of hope, which means we don’t have the luxury of whining." - Archbishop Chaput
