Watch and Pray

Hopefully, it's just another rumor. (Via Spirit Daily) Share

We've always been vulnerable. And always will be, because we are mortal, and of course because where there's a will, there's a way-- whether it be for doing good or ill. It does help, however, to know that a small towel and a bottle of water could help buy us some time in escaping some fume-y/incendiary mess. I'm not ever going to stop using public transportation, etc., so I'll add those two items to my purse, perhaps in between the Rosary beads and the chocolate stash.

All we can do is trust God and go on with living.

The "Family Security Matters" web site is more than a bit creepy, and I question their motives. It strikes me as not so much about family security as about whipping up a frenzy of anxiety in this country, the better to advance a political agenda. There's a word for those who stoke and exploit fear to gain political power. We call them "terrorists", a term that emerged in the French Revolution, which employed terror explicitly and deliberately to achieve its end: "Que la Terreur soit à l'ordre du jour" was the Jacobin slogan coined in 1973. A lesson of those times that needs to be re-learned is that not all terrorists are scruffy foreigners.

There's nothing like the distractions of war -- or the something very like war that we see about us now -- to ease the top-down imposition of social and political change at the hands of ambitious radicals possessed by what Augustine called "libido dominandi" -- the lust for power. Making people afraid is one of the best ways to ensure people will embrace the new paradigm.

That crossed my mind, too, Romulus. Thanks for the feedback, which is why I posted the link, to see what others think about it.

my husband is an airline pilot... i'm glad he has his government issued 9mm, his rosary in his pocket and wears a 4 way medal...what else can you do? (one day while in the security line[he wasn't packing heat] his rosary showed up on xray and the tech said something about weapons and his response was "it's [the rosary] a most powerful weapon"

Hundreds of thousands are killed every year just driving to and from work. I place my body and soul in God's hands everytime I get behind the wheel of my car.

Life is fragile. God alone knows how many have been killed in Minnesota's bridge disaster. Fortunately as Catholic, we should not be afraid of death.

Deo gratia,

All we can do is wait and pray. We have been extraordinarily blessed since 9/11. It's in God's hands.
