Irrational Fear is the replacement for reality, rationality, critical thinking, and - most especially - proper belief and faith in God.
When and where that doesn't come first, anxiety and worry takes off and grows. It can become emotionally and functionally crippling. It may be true that clinical anxiety and depression have always existed in humankind, but it is also true that these maladies are multiplied and magnified in direct proportion to how belief and faith in God are weakened, and they are at their worst when faith and belief in God is absent.
What the ongoing Marxist cultural revolution in America is doing, before it does anything else, is attacking faith and belief in God. In so doing, it attacks reality itself, replacing actual created reality with all sorts of man-made, conjured into being unrealities - lies - falsely purported to be scientific, and/or somehow proven to be "true", and widely accepted as being real and true. You may call it "Popular Reality". But it is false.
Popularity doesn't make reality. There is one and only one author of reality.
The proper priorities in the living of life are, of course,
Nothing comes before God. After God, nothing comes before family. After Family, nothing comes before Country. Self always comes last.
Marxism, and America's ongoing Marxist cultural revolution, turns this upside down. In the Marxis/Globalist "revolutionary" view, priorities are exactly reversed, to be,
Today is Quinquagesima Sunday (Latin Rite) and we hope you find the readings appropriate to the topic.
The Missal says that the man born blind represents the whole human race. Ever since man was turned out of the Paradise in the person of our first father, he has not known the light of heaven and therefore has suffered through being plunged into the darkness of condemnation.
The first chapter of the Gospel of John tells us that Jesus Christ, the creator of all that is created, showed man the light of salvation, but all men would not come to the light, and preferred the darkness.
The darkness is all that is good and attractive and pleasant in this world, which is temporary. But this life is our only opportunity to "come to the light" and enter into eternity - eternal life. Of, if we so choose, eternal damnation. We all have one shot at it, and this is it.
The ongoing Marxist cultural revolution in America, led by the Marxocrat Party with plenty of bipartisan cooperation from the Republicrat Party is doing everything in its power to destroy the hated American bourgeois middle-class by
To that end, they have infiltrated, taken over, corrupted and directed religion, academia, philosophy, education, science, medicine, corporate America, art, entertainment, information technology, news reporting and especially politics. The entire American government is now at least infected with if not controlled by the cultural revolution. And so are many state and local governments.
It has been a particularly sneaky infiltration; most organizations and individuals under its control are blithely unaware of how they are affected and indeed politically manipulated and controlled by it.
They have been fooled.
There are the catastrophic ecological lies still bubbling over all across the land terrifying the population, not only the young but many if not most of the old. The purported earth-poisons of oil, gas, coal, CO2, plastic, chemicals, insecticides, fertilizers, non-"organic" foods, electric grids, pipelines, engines, etc., all giving birth to the radical Eco-Nazi political/revolutionary Movement.
All based on lies.
The recent East Palestine Ohio train wreck presents a classic example.
The train derailment, fire, release and "controlled" burning of huge quantities of vinyl chloride, immediately caused a quite serious aerosol and surface water contamination of a vast populated area. It killed fish, birds and quite a few pets, and many people complained of eye and skin irritation, and headaches. A potential disaster for the area, but it also highlights the automatic gross magnification of long established irrational Eco-Nazi fears of pollutants.
Residents no longer trust government or private corporate tests of city water or well water; they are pre-convinced otherwise, having seen the lies of governments and corporations. Who could blame them?
But it takes quite a bit of time for surface contaminants to get down to well water levels, if ever. The initial government tests of city water supplies showing no vinyl chloride are almost certainly accurate, unless the city gets it's water supply from surface water; extremely unlikely.
Well water is safe from surface contamination unless it is a quite shallow well that went through no thick layers of clay or hard rock. Most wells are hundreds of feet deep and surface water just doesn't soak down that far. Surface water, even from long sustained rains, seldom gets very deep into the ground. Wells that were drilled through impermeable clay and/or hard rock are generally safe from all surface contamination, and most municipalities, and even most private well owners, further depend upon various filtering systems before the water is passed to human usage.
This is pretty much proved by the fact that relatively shallow septic systems just about never contaminate deeper wells, although they have been known to contaminate surface waters. It just doesn't get down that deep, or if it does, by that time is is so filtered and diluted that it doesn't present so much of a hazard any more.
But no one, including especially all the enraged and hyperventilating print and broadcast news people, believes that the municipal water supplies and the private wells of East Palestine are safe for any human usage.
Republicrat governor RINO DeWine announces a safe test of municipal water supply and no one believes him. Why should they? He told them surgical masks would screen out a virus, that Covid vaccines work, that complete shut downs work, that plexiglass barriers work, that social distancing works, that disinfecting surfaces, perpetual hand-washing, elbow-bumping and not going to Mass, to funerals, to weddings, to any gatherings, and not visiting the sick and the dying would work.
But they didn't work. All of that was a pack of lies.
The Covid-19 pandemic was commandeered by the cultural revolution and weaponized early on to help wreck Bourgeois family businesses like restaurants and small shops, stop worship of God and grow government power, and DeWine was either in on it, or fooled by it. What difference does that make? It's still a pack of politically weaponized lies.
The terrible thing is that now that he may be telling the truth he is not believed, and national big-audience broadcasters are screaming bloody murder over the now supposedly "polluted" municipal water supplies in East Palestine Ohio.
Take note of how anxiety has grown and spread through the whole American population since the 1848 birth of Marxism, and especially since the post-1917 birth and growth of Gramsci's Cultural Marxism. This essentially Marxist "Permanent Revolution" has been infecting and percolating through all human organizations for over a hundred years now.
All of its many lies are a setup for the spread of irrational anxiety.
But it wasn't always that way. Look at our history. Look at all the Pilgrims, the Revolutionaries, the Civil Warriors, the Indian fighters, the Greatest Generation, etc., went through, making us into the final nation we became. This nation wasn't built on anxiety, but the opposite.
Confidence. Strength. Courage. Determination.
And the best of those virtues were born of proper faith in God.
And that set the proper priorities of God, Family, Country and Self.
Looking to your own ultimate eternal destiny puts it all in proper perspective.
We worry about many things, but one thing only is important.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
