Sometimes I think the world has lost its own good mind, but carries on (almost gliding), completely oblivious to the dangers lurking.
Either that, or this world has been deceived by the master deceiver – a deceiver capable of holding the powers and glories of a whole world hostage, thus steering what now looks like a helpless world along the paths of death and destruction.
Our fathers would cry for what this place has become – and no area has been spared.
Things that brought shame in their days are now being justified and portrayed as normal.
So now they teach children wicked lies about being boys and girls.
They aberrate the sacred union that marriage is, even in the house of God.
Children now look up to celebrities and aspire to be like them – all well and good having people to look up to, except when the ones you look up to live in glass castles built on sinking sand.
Plus there’s this seeming aversion to clothes that a lot of women in those glass castles have – an aversion that grows by the day and permeates every part of life in this world.
And then there’s politics.
And a Church that has been severely affected by her disunity.
Then there’s the sickening notion that a baby is not a baby unless they say so….
The result? –
A confused world.
Increase in wickedness and iniquity.
Fear and distrust abounding.
With more and more people thinking that death is the only way out of the debilitating quagmire….
The world surely does teeter on the edge of something. But what?
Sometimes I wonder.
Sometimes I pray.
At other times I remember that unless the Church wakes up to her responsibility and be salt and light as she has been called to be, this world would continue to be without hope.
So we must fight with the truth, season the earth, and light the world.
We must remember that truth always prevails….
Salt that has lost its savour is good for nothing….
And no matter how thick the darkness is, just a little light is enough to make a difference….
Fight especially for the children – teach them truth, and show them better visions to aspire to.
Being sensitive in the spirit and proactive about our faith may save the lives of children in ways we cannot even begin to imagine now.
And as we fight, we must do so with hope because we have the assurance of Jesus Christ that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church.
So arise again.
Take up your place.
