The theme is weird little town. The background is pink(?) with white sparkles and the title The Rasberry Palace,It’s the way we roll might give someone the impression it’s a fruit stand. A throw over from the 60′s blog. A Prince (look out for the chem trails)accolade blog.None of these. Two topics.Three if you count in some of the lighter stuff. Religion(Catholicism to be exact), politics as informed by my Catholic faith and the third ,the lighter stuff.
I try to read as many other blogs as i possibly can and reblog the interesting.If a blog doesn’t get a reblog it doesn’t mean it’s not good-it may mean that i haven’t got to it yet.
I stay away from the personal as much as possible. 1. my life is not that interesting anyway. 2. yes,i do have struggles but who wants to read about my angst when there are people struggling with much bigger problems. 3. some people are family,still living and i don’t want to give into the temptation to slay with the pen so to speak. They’re not able to speak about the other side and I’m as much to blame for some problems.Maybe more so. If they can’t speak back there’s no point in my giving a one sided view.Besides,love em no matter what.
There are some things i really don’t have patience for :
the idea that Islam is a religion of peace. With everything that i’ve seen in the world so far nothing backs that up.Bill O Reilly seems to think there are 2 separate groups. The peaceful group and the militant group. I don’t think so. The peaceful group is just the group that lets the militant group do what they’re able to do. IMHO they’re all on the same side and i think there are verses in the Qur’an that back this up.
Vision seekers. I do believe there will be 3 days of darkness but when the Church tells me this is going to take place THEN I’ll prepare for it. Until then the only thing we need to seek as Catholics is confession,the sacraments and obedience to the Church.
Jesus Himself said He did not know the hour. IF Jesus said that how could anyone else possibly know? Jesus will return once. It will be definitive,final and triumphant.Our end could be anytime. Jesus said to keep watch and be prepared. This is why we have to be careful. There are alleged visionaries.Some contain heresies. Some are festering schism in the Church. We do better not seeking the sensational and staying away from this stuff. There are apparitions and private revelation the Church has approved .However, our obligation is always to accept public revelation-not private. If private revelation helps us in our faith journey all well and good :)
You’re an atheist? Want to discuss it? I say GREAT! Want to impose secular humanism on the majority. Sorry. Tell me why we should embrace atheism.Make the case for it.
People i would love to reach out to and have all the time in the world for:Catholics who have left the Church.Come home.
Non Catholics who attack the Church. My guess is they really don’t know what she teaches. They have been brought up most of their lives to be wary of,if not afraid of, the Catholic Church.
Liberals. If we could convince just one liberal that conservatives aren’t greedy rich people who hate the poor, minorities and women it’d be worth the effort. If we can’t convince em at least vote in conservatives so we don’t have to put up with failed liberal ideologies anymore.
Finally,if you have an Eastern Catholic blog post a link. I’ll check it out and promote it.
If you have a CONSERVATIVE blog post a link. I’ll check it out.
To be honest,the one(and only) writing skill i have is discipline. I try to keep up here every day and pick out a topic i feel passionate about at the moment. I don’t have any great insights and the posts are based on loosely worded notes(if at all).I just hope that the topics matter as much to someone else as they do to me.
Yes,thanks sooooooo much for those who actually stop by and read. I will not take that for granted.
Stay safe,sleep peacefully,God Bless
