This Catholic morning hymn will assist thee in these times of distress.
Now that the star of light has risen,
Let us to God most humbly pray,
To save us from all hurtful things
in all our actions of the day.
To bridle and restrain our tongue,
That wordy war may not resound,
To cover and protect our sight,
From dangerous follies all around.
To drive iniquity away,
And purify our inmost soul,
And by spare use of meat and drink,
Our rebel passions to control.
That when the day has sped away,
And He again the night shall bring,
We may through holy abstinence,
With purity His glory sing.
All glory to the Father be;
All praise, eternal Son to Thee;
All honour as is ever meet
To God the holy Paraclete.
Skeptic, I once again appreciate your calls for civility. They are not without merit. However, civility itself is the greatest casualty in times such
as these we are in. This is because the excuse of civility has been used often as the means by which evil doers attempt to minimize the true extent of
their crimes and belittle the depth of their underlying depravity. They use the guise of “Political Correctness” as the excuse to emanate the most
heinous and insidious of lies.
As you stated, the people are upset, and rightly so. For they have been lied to, abused, and swindled by those in power for many many years with
little to no reprisal from their now disgruntled and disillusioned subjects. The people are suffering now, and soon perhaps very terribly as there is
little end in sight for the many downward spiraling affairs that the elitist few have forced the trusting many into these many years, and the worst,
but most predictable, travesty of all is still yet to come (which I will spare you from realizing for but a moment).
More to follow....
