For all my friends who believe the crypto curencies are a fool-proof bet, I invite you think twice and thrice about it.
You can chide me all you want for being a paranoid “gold bug,” but physical ownership of something is a lot more secure than owning crypto that could be seized by the same folks who cancel, regulate, and steal everything under the sun. I don’t care if it’s Bitcoin, Dog Coin, Cat Coin, whatever.
In the words of Darth Vader, “Don’t be true proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed . . .” After all, the ability to amass tons of digital wealth . . . is insignificant next to the power of the Holy Spirit. Put your faith in God, not any of these means of “beating the system.”
One Cardinal does not equal Catholic Church magisterium. Neither does the entire corrupted Vatican for that matter. Catholic doctrine is perennial; habituated by centuries of teaching. You don’t get to rewrite it in a few years or even a few decades.
Don’t forget the wisdom of St. Athanasius. If the whole world (including the Vatican) stands against truth, then I said against the world.
Matt Walsh had a great segment on the way individuals zealously defend their status as “mentally ill,” particularly with regards to anxiety, ADHD, and the like.
My Commentary: It’s a lot like Congress. EVERYBODY hates Congress as a whole (tons of polls show this). Yet, EVERYBODY re-elects their own Congress Creep virtually every time (incumbents hauve a 90% re-election rate). So, just like with mental illness, people will admit there is a problem with the concept universally (excessive diagnosis, exaggeration of the problem), but fail to recognize their PARTICULAR attachment to it.
At any rate, always examine your conscience, folks (and go to Confession!). God has many fun and wonderful ways of revealing our faults and frivolities to us. It’s simply a matter of whether we are willing to take a look. Oh, how many of the solutions to our festering problems are . . . hidden . . . in . . . plain . . . sight.
Catholics know that they should bless their foods. Failing to do so not only reflects a lack of gratitude, but also leaves you vulnerable to the demonic. Consuming something infested with demons can have dire spiritual consequence up-to-and-including demonic possession.
This is also true of ESSENTIAL OILS. Fr. Ripperger explains how the oils themselves are morally neutral (and beneficial for usage), but they have been the target of evildoers who put spells and hexes on them. Always know where you oils and medicines originate and get them blessed (or at least do the food blessing on them).
*There are a few good Jesuit priests (not many). By my investigation, he appears to be one of them (along with others like Fr. Mitch Pacwa) **This is good, but he does not mention the CURRENT SSPX scandals. I think, if Kennedy was asked, his response would have been thoughtful, but the topic of sexual abuse in parts of the SSPX was not broached.
Commie bastards, like Marx, on the other hand, seek to manipulate workers and use them as pawns in their conquest to dominate countries and take over the world. Today happens to be the socialist International World Workers Day.
At any rate, St. Joseph > Satanic Marxists. That much is obvious.
Every time I learn more about this great and holy Catholic, St. Catherine of Siena, I’m more impressed. I referenced her several weeks ago about the most appropriate ways to handle a problematic pope (for the podcast on it, see here). Those of us with the occasional flare for vitriol can benefit from her examples.
Don’t forget: “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” -St. Catherine of Siena
