Marian Consecration ain't easy for us "Marthas".

It's the part about worrying about one thing only:  totally returning the love that is given, and trusting that everything else will be taken care of.

Vic Biorseth, Monday, March 13, 2017
http://www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com/

Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me."
But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;
one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."
--Luke 10:38-42

That's my problem; I'm a "Martha".  I think it's a personality type.  It's my nature.  I am a doer of things, a fixer of problems and a correcter of error.  I cannot ignore problems, especially the really big ones. 

I don't know how many times I have heard the advice "Why don't you just let go and let God?", especially from one dear lady who is no longer with us but gone to her blessed reward.  Why don't I?  Because I just can't.  It goes against my nature, and puts me at war with myself. 

In the closing days of the 33 day retreat culminating with the Marian Consecration, I struggle with this problem.  I really want to go through the whole consecration, but if I do, then I really hope to be fully and totally committed to that consecration.  And I already fear falling down in that regard. 

The retreat book is 33 Days to Morning Glory, by Fr. Michael Gailey, and it goes through the "Big Four" Saints and their consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:  Louis de Montforte, Maximilian Colby, Mother Teresa and John Paul the Great. 

It has been a very moving and uplifting retreat, in ways unexpected, as I wrote in Grace and Suffering, Mediatrix of all Graces and Satan's Blind Rage.  But I fear I may not make the grade.  I don't want to be a big saint like any of the Big Four above; I just want to be a saint.  A little one.  But it ain't easy for me to lay all my worries about the world and the Church and America at the foot of the cross, and put all of my attention on the will of the Holy Spirit, moved through the Immaculate Heart, and just let all of that go

I really want to.  But as yet, I simply cannot. 

I know that Jesus wins in the end.  I know that.  But how many souls will be lost?  Look around.  Which way do you see the world moving? 

Every major human error that I have written about in all of these pages has to do with, at the core, "intellectual" opposition to humanity.  Which means "intellectual" abandonment and opposition to God

Every fraud, from Climate Change to you name it, is blamed on Humanity.  Man is being taught to hate himself.  The only creature in all of creation that is made in the image of God is being vilified, in education, with the hidden intention of bringing all the world

- voluntarily, and with fooled, blind, full cooperation -

under the Global subjugation of Pure Evil

Generations have been and are still being taught that everything not human is natural, and that only humanity is not natural, and that humanity is destructive of nature.  God is more and more abandoned as time goes on, and His image is more and more detested. 

And there is an evil plan behind all of that

I try to "let go and let God", but I cannot.  I am on fire with it.  I wake at 3:30 AM every morning with words burning in my heart that I need to write, and so here I am, on yet another early morning, typing these words before I go to work. 

It's the Martha in me. 

Please pray for me; I really need it.

I'm fine, your fine,  your readers are fine!

They, me & you need a Martha. So quit beating yourself with whip of guilt.  Now that you vented get back to work describing reality for us.  I remember giving you hell for not supporting Trump.  Hmmm!

Cliff:

Yeah, I remember.  I miss-took Trump's supreme confidence for arrogance, when it was in fact a shining example of American Can-Do-ism.  The Marian Consecration is a step toward sainthood and, perhaps more importantly, Christian evangelism, through the spreading work of the Militia Immaculata

But Martha, too, is a Saint.  If I can't be a Mary, then I will be the best Martha I can be.  Maybe it's a matter of, once a Grunt, always a Grunt.  The Global Enemy is Evil and Falsehood, and I will use every weapon I can get my worldly hands on to fight them.

Thanks, Cliff.

Regards,

Vic

Passing Thoughts

Fleeting thoughts of humerus, odd or interesting things that crossed our minds.  Comment at the bottom of any existing Passing Thought, or, add your own Passing Thought right here

The Elite, Effete, Upper-Class Science-Deniers of the New World Order.  Denial of God is denial of Truth, which leads to denial even of solid empirical facts that do not support the inevitable man-made alternative ideology.

Hard, Cold Reality squeezes Leftist Lies, and Leftie Lunacy pops out.  Many people raised and bathed in lies all their lives simply cannot handle the shock of reality.  The inevitable confrontation brings out real Leftie Lunacy.

Empty Confessionals, Popular Liturgy and the Communion Stampede.  Nobody notices or even thinks about all the empty confessionals, but everybody "participates" in Liturgy and everybody receives the Most Blessed Sacrament.

The Islamic Connection between ISIS, Random Terrorism and Global Jihad.  It is the unseen Islamic Connection that is conquering Western Civilization: The Known Terrorist Groups, Native Born Convert Terrorists, Global Jihadists, etc. are all Moslems who read the same Koran.

Breaking Government "Sausage-Making" to Repeal Obamacare.  Political Government Sausage Making versus plain and simple Constitutional Government is the sole problem with repealing Obamacare.

The sole path to Islamic Heaven is to die a martyr in performance of Jihad.  That's it.  Islam assures no one else of salvation.  Male martyrs get a permanent erection; female martyrs get a permanently erect penis.  No kidding.

Notable Quotable Judie Brown, on Trump, Life and Death.  American Life League's Quotable Judie Brown nailed the essence of the response to Trump's offer to Planned Parenthood.

The Politics versus Truth dichotomy conundrum.  Even knowing how vehemently both Establishment Political Parties hate the Constitution, it's still shocking how openly they oppose that which they have all sworn to uphold.

Looking more closely at Pope Francis' chosen Papal Pals.  If a critter walks like a duck, talks like a duck and is constantly seen in the company of other ducks, the logical conclusion is that he most probably is a duck.

Alinskyite Dolan:  Anti-American American, Anti-Catholic Cardinal.  Cardinal Timothy Dolan may be the perfect Undercover Alinskyite Anti-Institution Subversive Radical Marxist Revolutionary.

Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire, Nose As Long As A Telephone Wire.  "Liar Liar" applies to the whole Washington Establishment, both of their Parties and their whole Fake News Media, in their obsessive-compulsive mission to destroy Trump.

On Ending Quantitative Easing and Bursting the QE Bubble.  Does a stock market crash mean an economic crisis?  Not necessarily.  A burst of the QE Bubble could be a step toward Market Sanity.

The Great Evil Nationalism Lie:  Nationalism is not Evil; Globalism is Evil.  The Evil Nationalism Lie says that nations with borders are not needed, which is to say, there is no such thing as Evil that needs to be kept out.  Don't worry your little head about it.

The Great Melting Pot Lie:  America is and always was a Distinct Culture.  The American "Melting Pot" of Immigration cooks an Assimilation Stew, in which Immigrants become Americans, rather than American Culture becoming Suicidally Diverse.

Marian Consecration ain't easy for us "Marthas".  It's the part about worrying about one thing only: fully returning the love that is given, and trusting that everything else will be taken care of.

2nd Sunday of Lent, Transfigured of our Lord Cycle A  Hope, inner soul room, transfiguration

Trump Rising:  "We'll fully fund Planned Parenthood if they stop Abortions."  Planned Parenthood's Answer:  No!  We're PROUD to be committing Abortions!

Globalist Stupidassism in the Vatican.  Globalist Fraud after Hoax after Scam, all promoted in the Pontifical Academy of Science and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences "Workshop on Biological Extinction."

The greatest threat to Constitutional America?  Immorality.  Insidious, growing Immorality poses a greater threat than the growing ideologies of Marxism, Islam, Globalism, or any of America's external enemies, combined.

"Good Cop, Bad Cop" Political Parties versus We The People.  The Republicrat Party is the Good Cop, the Marxocrat Party is the Bad Cop, both are owned and operated by the same Establishment Club, and We The People are the "Suspect".

On Good Globalism, Bad Globalism, and Nationalism.  The International "Good" Aims of Catholicism and larger Christianity versus the "Evil" Aims of Communism, Islam and Freemasonry, related to the Natural Civil Order of Sovereign Nations.

Unconstitutional Obamacare, and Unconstitutional Replacementcare.  If federal control of private industry is illegal, then why would any sworn-in, honest and fully conscious Congress simply replace one blatant illegality with another?

Wiretapping Trump:  Why is anyone surprised?  Wiretapping Trump may be among the least of all the Obamunist - Marxocrat Party crimes against the Constitution and the Citizenry of the USA.

Original Design preserves the Church, and preserves America.  The Original Design of the Church was of Divine Authorship.  The Original Design of the USA was as "perfect" as any mere men could ever design.

On the California Secession Movement:  Hold the Yippees and Yahoos.  A California Secession should be put down as was the Democrat South after the Civil War.  Per Amendment XIV, "Rebels" could never vote or hold elective office again.

It's all about Marxist Revolution, not sexual license or saving the planet.  "Organizing is a euphemism for Revolution."--Saul Alinsky, who invented Grass-Roots Community Organizing for Eventual Marxist Revolution.

Return to Constitutionalism means a return to Original American Faith.  Constitutional Originalism requires understanding the Faith of the Authors of the Constitution at the time of Ratification.

On the Establishment Rage aimed at President Trump.  Globalist, Marxist, Anti-American, Anti-Christian, Anti-Law, Unbalanced Establishment Rage aimed at the Trump Presidency and Agenda, is Dedicated and Committed to Destroying his Presidency.

Trump Speak:  What's new in Trump's speech to Congress?  Nothing whatsoever.  Trump Speak is People Speak.  He's been saying the exact same things from the very beginning.  The Establishment, the Media and all other Globalists and Cultural Marxists were never even listening, until now.

"Offer it up?"  What the hell is that?  Where is the Grace in That?  When all is woe, you feel abandoned by God, and you say "God, where are you?", there He hangs, suffering on the Cross, abandoned and mocked, saying "People, where are you?  Is it all for nothing?"

How is Mary the Mediatrix of All Graces?  Isn't Jesus the sole Mediator?  Again, it depends on whether you view it in Earth time, or Heaven time.  In Eternity, past, present and future all exist in the same "moment".

On Satan's Blind Rage against "The Woman".  Was the war between Satan and The Woman, or, between the Seed of Satan, and the Seed of the Woman?  It depends upon whether you view it from Earth, or from Heaven.

The Looming Islamic War:  Sunni, ISIS, Shia, Kurds, Russia, Israel, USA?  Sunni nations allying with Israel against ISIS?  Excuse me?  Shia nations allying with Russia?  Who's on First here?

Amnesty Schmamnesty!  Feelings are feelings and the law is the law.  "Feelings" and "Values" and "Who We Are" and other Freudian-Marxian tricks are not the law, and they do nothing for National Security other than to harm it.

How Sworn in Operators of the Law can actually Hate the Law.  The Marxocrat Party, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, etc., all solemnly sworn to uphold the Law, but who actually Hate The Law.

Who is guaranteed Freedom of the Press?  CNN, or you and me?  The First Amendment Rights were written to protect all Citizens, not to solely protect Partisan Propagandist Corporations to the exclusion of others. 

Draining Swamps (Plural) through the Information Revolution.  Well, ya gotcher Global Swamp, ya gotcher National Swamps andja gotcher Catholic Clerical Swamp.  And Information Technology is the Roto-Rooter in all of them.

Koran is a Cult and should be Outlawed.  Or, get ready for violence on our own soil.

How obstinate and (stupid) Egalitarianism acts to destroy civilization.  Are we not all children of God, to be treated absolutely equally, and is that not Egalitarianism?  Well, in a word, no.

The Source of Radical Islamic Terrorism?  Mohammed and the Koran.  Radical Marxist Terrorism comes out of the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital.  Similarly, Radical Islamic Terrorism comes right straight out of the Koran.

How Cultural Marxism induces the commission of National Suicide.  Ideological Marxism has almost totally abandoned armies and force of arms, switching to Subversion and getting us to commit National Suicide.

American Exceptionalism in a nutshell:  Citizen Upward Mobility.  Unique American Exceptionalism is why everyone wants to come here.  Here, citizens can "move up" and improve their own condition in life.

In this Information War, a Disinformation Program has established Unreality.  An Information War is unlike any war we have ever fought.  Now, what Truth fights, is massive persistent belief in Unreality.

President Trump and the Strong, Manly Leadership we were all looking for.  Strong, Manly Leadership has finally arrived in America.  The Church still waits for it.

Watching President Trump Breaking the Fake News Media.  Wow.  I mean, like, wow.  Watching Trump Breaking the Fake News Media is the Best Show In Town.  It's a beautiful thing.

Evil Globalist Desperation drives the Rush to Impeach Trump.  They are desperate to find a way to impeach Trump, now, while they still own the Chief Justice and an "Establishment" majority in Congress.

Were Mary of Magdela and Mary of Bethany the same woman?  Could an earlier freeing of demonic possession be the reason behind Mary of Bethany's radical faith, through true recognition of exactly Who Jesus Was?

The still unrecognized evil goal of the Trump Opposition.  It isn't just Trump they are after, and it isn't just Constitutional America they seek to destroy.  The unrecognized evil goal is Globalism, and the end of nations and liberty of man.

President Trump, a Sign of Contradiction in the World.  Am I the only one who sees Trump as what we are all called to be but are not; a sign of contradiction in the world, opposed by many?  Or am I nuts? 

Scripture, War and Peace.  Does Scripture ban war, forbid division, invite unlimited unity, and thereby deny the existence of evil?

The Pasquino Statue comes alive, with questions for Pope Francis.  Posters all over Rome revive the ancient "Pasquino Statue" tradition of lay people questioning the Pope.

The George Soros Republicrats.  Is anyone surprised that Soros money backed McCain, Graham, Ryan, Rubio, etc.?  I'm not. 

Massive Public Outrage for Hire, to the Highest Bidder.  The Woman's March on Washington, the ongoing Airport Demonstrations, all, and more, all bought and paid for, in advance.

On "Killer" Putin and the Indefensible Trump Remarks.  Putin's a Killer, but, like, we're not, so we should all just run and hide from Putin.  Right?

Democracy Breaking:  Returning America to a Constitutional Republic.  Repealing Wilson's 16th and 17th Amendments, and returning to America's brilliant original conceptual design.

Party Breaking:  Catholicism's Key to Church Greatness.  Catholicism's real key to making the Church great again is to break clerical allegiance to Party and return sole allegiance to the Revealed Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Party-Breaking:  Trump's Key to American Greatness.  Trump's real key to Making American Great Again is to break allegiance to Party and return sole allegiance to Constitutional America.

The Minimum Wage Lie: Raising unemployment, uplifting no one.  You just can't fool the natural law that controls economics.

The Stupid (or Evil) Bishops Helping the Global Islamization Cause.  Leading Dioceses (and America) into social suicide. 

Potentially Wrong Decisiveness v Always Wrong Indecision.  President Trump's bold decisiveness contrasted with Pope Francis' Pronounced Indecision.

On the new (to me) heresy of Popalitry.  False belief that a Pope can do no wrong leads to Pope Worship.

Do we have a Diabolically Controlled Pope?  Every time he opens his mouth, he makes himself a fool. 

Cultural Marxist Indecency is always on public display.  It's so obvious even the lying media can't hide it any more.

The "Hitlerian" Trump Slander: Communism's Oldest Deceptive Strategy.  Fake News Media, the Pope, the Marxocrat Party, and even Republicrat "Establishment" types raise the specter of Nazism associated with "Populist" President Trump, who isn't even an ideologue.

American-defined Equality, Life, Liberty, Property: that, we can unite on.  In the American interpretation only - not the Marxist interpretation, and not the Islamic interpretation.  We should unite with any who embrace these Four American Foundational Civil Rights

It's "Time To Unite" with anti-Americans and all forms of evil?  My Ass!  We The People should reach out to them?  As they are?  Why? !!!  Shouldn't they be trying very hard to convert themselves and reconcile with us?  If not, why not?

The Dubia Aftermath shows that Pope Francis still doesn't get it.  Non-response to the Dubia means a Warning; non-response to that means a second Warning, and finally, a non-Pope Council to depose the Pope.

The Inaugural aftermath shows that the Establishment still doesn't get it.  Horror of horrors!  Trump keeps saying what he always keeps saying!  And the Marxocrats may be Marxified, but the Republicrats are just plain Stupidified.

Praying for President Trump on Inauguration Day.  Invoking the Protection of the Holy Spirit on our new President as all of American and world Cultural Marxism becomes more and more dangerously unhinged.

The Anti-Reality of Show Biz, exemplified by "The View".  Leftist opposition to Nature, Men, Christianity, Life, Human Babies, Marriage, etc., amounts to insane opposition to Reality itself, by nearly all of Hollywood.

On the Freeing of the Bradley/Chelsea Manning Creature.  Only in Obama's America could Bradley Manning commit treason, go to prison, get a sex-change operation at our expense and then be turned loose.

"Blacklisting" McCarthyites was America's First National Poison Pill.  Now, Cultural Marxists are "Blacklisting" every expression of love of America, and our own sitting government, almost in its majority, hates America.

All the Congressmen boycotting Trump's inauguration are of one Marxist mindset.  How much ya wanna bet all the Congressmen boycotting the inauguration should have been impeached from office and charged with criminal malfeasance in office long ago?

The Marxified Racism of Rep. John Lewis is OK because it's anti-white.  Taking full advantage of racist Black Privilege, Rep. John Lewis exemplifies the new purely politically-based Marxist Racism of his beloved Marxocrat Party.

Should we treat Islam differently than other religions?  If not, why not?  Doesn't Islam treat the whole non-Islamic world differently than it treats Islam?

Promoting Evil by Doing Good: The Evil Fruit of the PC Do-Gooders.  How Political Correctness and Good Intentions have overpowered Human Reason and Critical Thinking, to promote Self Destructive Evils.

Joe Biden keeps getting Medals from Evil Men for supporting Evil Deeds.  Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, awarded him the US Medal of Participation.  Notre Dame awarded him the "Laetare" Medal of Moral Equivalency.

Wouldn't it drive Fake-News nuts if President Trump joined the March For Life?  The whole Marxocrat Party, their Fake News Media and All Hollywood Nobility would go ballistic.

Is Putin's Hack of our Election why Hillary Won the Popular Vote?  If the Russian Election Hack actually affected the election, maybe that's why the Popular Vote went to Hillary.

Cyber Security:  A Globally Accessible Totally Secure system is an oxymoron.  A computer system may be globally accessible or totally secure, but not both at the same time.

Determining how stupid it can get when it just keeps getting stupider.  Desperately trying to finally answer the question "How Stupid Can It Get?" in a limitless, growing, dynamic environment of exponentially multiplying, ever increasingly radical stupidities.
