Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus, shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring, and driving into error.
2 Timothy 3: 12-13
This speaks to two near-universal delusions of today’s effeminate, post-Christian culture. First, that bad things aren’t going to happen to us. Because, I dunno, we’re SPECIAL? Or DIFFERENT? Or, oh, wait, I know… WE’RE BETTER. So nothing bad is going to happen to us. Because we’re just too AWESOME to be raped and slaughtered like animals. Gotcha. We’re EXCEPTIONAL.
The second delusion is that this situation will self-correct – that the truly evil people who have utterly infiltrated and infested every institution, from the secular government to industry to The Church, that these spectacularly evil people with Antipope Bergoglio first among them will, for some unknown reason, stop, pull back from their evil, and self-correct. No. This will continue and will accelerate. To argue otherwise is pure effeminacy – an unwillingness to deal with reality due to a softness of character and lack of virtue. It’s also agin’ the scriptures.
