Stats…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on October 7, 2009

Every once and a while I take a look at my “blog stats” to see how many people have been to this blog, what they’ve been reading, and what they’ve been clicking on.  Sometimes its very encouraging and sometimes it’s…well…not.

Much the same could be said about our world today.  In fact, if our current “state of affairs” was linked to a “blog stats” choice, what would we find?  Encouragement?  I don’t think so.  At least not in this country.

We begin with our current “socialist government” pushing for this nationalized healthcare , and pushing hard!

We have just learned that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may bring the health reform plan – that still includes taxpayer funding of abortion – to the Senate floor as soon as the end of next week. This is an extremely accelerated timetable considering the Senate Finance Committee isn’t expected to vote on its version until this Thursday or Friday. ~CitizenLink, Oct 6, 2009.

Which means that healthcare, instead of going from bad to good, will in fact, go from bad to worse in that it will have nothing to do with health or with care; ESPECIALLY when concerning any care for the people that our government is SUPPOSE TO SERVE, namely US – young, old, healthy, and infirm, born AND unborn:

The abortion lobby keeps saying the Hyde Amendment takes care of our concerns: but the Hyde Amendment is attached to each year’s Medicaid funding bill and doesn’t apply to the new proposals.

Even worse, when an amendment like the Hyde Amendment was proposed last week by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), it was defeated by a vote of 10-13.  The Committee also defeated an amendment by Sen. Hatch that would have prevented discrimination against any individual or organization that refused to provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.

“The political implications of the shift illustrated by this poll are significant: including abortion in health care reform is a move out of touch with the American people.  Congress needs to remove the abortion mandate out of the current health care proposals.” ~AUL, Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D., Oct 7, 2009.

We are being sold into further bondage.  Our chains of slavery to the murder of children is increasing.  If that weren’t enough, we also are dealing with another issue of LIFE, that which actually produces LIFE – ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN.  It’s happening at the lowest level, the retraining of our own children in the public forum of School:

“Safe Schools czar Kevin Jennings has been accused of inappropriate statements and actions… you don’t have to look back 20 years to be concerned about Jennings.  The best evidence is Jennings’ 13-year track record as leader of the largest homosexual advocacy group in the nation, devoted entirely to promoting homosexuality to kids:  GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

Under the guise of “safe schools,” GLSEN promotes classroom activities that not only give biased portrayals of Christian and socially conservative viewpoints, but also turn students into lobbyists for its extreme left causes.

For example, GLSEN has suggested that students ask for a “queer-friendly prom” and to “launch a campaign to create a gender-neutral, all-genders or multi-gendered bathroom at their school.” ~CitizenLink, Oct 5, 2009.

With so much going on in the “blog stats” of our lives here in the USA, were can we find any encouragement?  In the only place possible: Within the Sacred Heart of Jesus!  God gave us a beautiful reminder in Sunday’s First Reading taken from the prophet, Baruch.

Baruch 4:5-12

5 Take courage, my people, O memorial of Israel! 6 It was not for destruction that you were sold to the nations, but you were handed over to your enemies because you angered God.

Hello!? How long has the murder of children been legalized on our American soil?  Since 1973…

7 For you provoked Him who made you, by sacrificing to demons and not to God.

16 And they forsook all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made for themselves molten images of two calves; and they made an Asherah, and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. 17 And they burned their sons and their daughters as offerings,  and used divination and sorcery, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger. ~ 2Kings 17: 16-17

Ummm, Harry Potter, fortune telling, horoscopes, numerology, and other means of sorcery often practiced within the New Age movement.

8 You forgot the everlasting God, who brought you up, and you grieved Jerusalem, who reared you. 9 For she saw the wrath that came upon you from God, and she said: “Hearken, you neighbors of Zion, God has brought great sorrow upon me; 10 for I have seen the captivity of my sons and daughters, which the Everlasting brought upon them.

St. Paul warns us that Jesus will not return until “the apostasy” has taken place (2 Thess 2:1-3).  That is the time when symbolically the apostles fled the garden… but it began even before that as they dozed off in the slumber of doubt and fear.

God will permit a great evil against the Church: heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they will break into the Church while bishops, prelates, and priests are asleep. —Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (1613-1658 A.D.); Ibid. p.30

Of course, we have seen much of this over the past forty years. But what I speak of here is the culmination of this apostasy. There will be a remnant who will move forward. A portion of the flock who will remain faithful to Jesus at all costs. ~Mark Mallet, The Great Scattering, Oct 30, 2008.

11 With joy I nurtured them, but I sent them away with weeping and sorrow. 12 Let no one rejoice over me, a widow and bereaved of many; I was left desolate because of the sins of my children, because they turned away from the law of God.

And yet we are reminded of a precious gift: Heb 2:9-11

9 But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for every one.

10 For it was fitting that He, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through suffering.

11 For He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified have all one origin. That is why He is not ashamed to call them brethren,…

“What glorious days are coming upon the Church! The witness of love—the love of our enemies—will convert many souls.” ~Mark Mallet, ibid, Oct 30, 2008.
