Today is the first day of the liturgical year, or as I call it, “the day you move the red bookmark ALL the way back to the front of the missal.” The season of Advent has as its focus the End Times, as we prepare for the SECOND coming of Christ by contemplating His FIRST coming at His Nativity.
Did you catch Our Lord’s description of the run-up to the End Times in the Gospel reading today? It is from Luke chapter 21.
Now tell me that this isn’t an apt description of the world under the Coviet political religion:
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves; Men withering away for fear, and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world.
I hope someone is watching the sunspots. The real-time sun cam is HERE. Sunspots in the shape of the Cross are all that’s missing.Because we sure have “men withering away for fear and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world.” Oh yes. We have that all right.
Stay confessed. Be conscious of the fact that every Mass you attend could be your last, and every Sacramental Communion you make could be your Viaticum.
