    Thanks AED, we definitely need all the decades we can get...
    I had a debate with my wife after the rosary. I made a comment stating that if every man, woman and child n Ireland joined this rosary. The virus would disappear immediately. She took issue, explaining that I did not definitively know this. I argued that heaven places so much kudos in the rosary; that it remain resolute in my belief.

    On many occasions I have read about how the rosary changed events dramatically. And Our Lady herself has stated that the rosary is THE weapon of these times...

    I don't often win an argument with herself. But I won this one (...herself just didn't know it!)

    One side note, I was given a huge grace today. While i didn't make Confession, I did make the final daily Mass for the time being. Right before the 5:15 evening Mass, my priest learned of the bishop's decision today.

    For the time being, we still have confessions.

    My tears were both joy at following the Holy Spirit (not knowing how much longer) and grief.

    This Associate is such a special man!! His homily was a treasure, much needed.

    Neighboring dioceses aren't following the governor yet.

    (y)She will know it by and by because you are right. It is the only fool proof weapon against this plague or any other catastrophe. The sad thing is so many Catholics have forgotten it.

    My son said the same odd thing to me the other day that he knew some people who were sick this winter and just couldn’t shake it, it just kept them under the weather for so long. Hmmmm

    A lot of people around here had this coughing "flu" and for some it turned into p neumonia. But no one was tested because there was no test. In a couple of cases I know of the people infected had a terrible ti.e getting over it. It just didnt let go.

    I've also found if I don't have a Rosary on my person, my mood and outlook suffer. So yes, I keep it on my person (except during sleep of course).

    A practical consideration regarding the cancellation of public Masses until further notice: it will not be long before parishes really start to feel the financial pinch of the absence of the Sunday (and most likely Easter) collections. What do any of you think about whether we should continue to support the Church financially while the sacraments are unavailable to us? I know it is our obligation but I have mixed feelings about this.

    From the "Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis:

    “My Dear Wormwood,

    Plagues are a most effective weapon given to us by our father below. Normally, Christians are quite comfortable in receiving the dreaded sacraments and gathering in their prayers and other heinous Arts. But if you can stir up a hysteria by means of a plague so that they cut themselves off from our enemies gifts to them, the torment of isolation will drive them to despair and season them quite deliciously much to our delight.

    Get them to forget about their usual practices of prayer, fasting and alms giving and encourage them to become gluttons, slanderers, and lose all regard for their neighbor thinking only about themselves and their immediate needs. Storing up treasures which we can send moth and rust to destroy further sweetening their torment.

    If you can, help them to redefine their usual words like “church” and “fellowship” and “ministry” so that they feel comfortable cutting themselves off from our enemies care and they can be tempted all the more.

    Yes, Wormwood, a plague is a tried and true method of taking their eyes off our enemy and getting them to worship their own bodies. A most desirable position for we tempters. Never let a good crisis go to waste!

    Your Affectionate Uncle,

    Joe Hoft of the Gateway Pundit, confirms FromRome.Info’s findings on Corona mortality
    March 17, 2020 From Rome Editor Leave a comment

    by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

    In an article, by Joe Hoft, entitled, EXCLUSIVE: Evidence Shows Director General of World Health Organization Severely Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History, published by the Gateway Pundit, today, March 17, 2020, the observations on each aspect of the true mortality rate of he Wuhan virus, reported here at FromRome.Info in our recent article, Why that 3.4% Mortality rate is a lie, has been confirmed.

    Mr. Hoft writes:

    The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu.
    This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest panic in world history.

    The Director General of the WHO spoke on March 3, 2020 and shared this related to the coronavirus:

    While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.

    Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.

    This statement led to the greatest panic in world history as the media all over the world shared and repeated that the coronavirus was many, many times more deadly than the common flu.

    The problem is his statement is false. It was not accurate!

    See the rest of Mr. Hoft’s, article at the Gateway Pundit , where he discusses the actual mortality rates of the winter flu and Corona virus and compares them to actual numbers of known infections to make similar observations, as I have done in recent days.

    Thanks for posting, Richard. This is important because, in my opinion, we don't know the truth yet about how lethal this virus really is.

    I just watched Alex Jones of Infowars interview Mr. Hoft and his twin brother who lives in Hong Kong. His brother is a vice president of a large company with offices in Hong Kong and China. He said Hong Kong is 100% back to work with very few deaths and their China office is running at about 50%. Right now the media is floating the idea that 'social distancing' and other restrictions will be in effect for 18 months. He also said his family was visiting his wife's family near Wuhan in January, and he, his wife, and son all became sick with corona virus symptoms. He said it was no worse than the regular flu but they were never tested. He, too, does not believe the mainstream narrative regarding how lethal this virus is . The three of them agreed that Trump had to do something or he would've been blasted as soon as there was a single death.

    Alex Jones also mentioned toward the end of the show that Asians have a higher death rate from this virus. I've read in multiple places that this was true for the SARS (eg corona virus) epidemic in the early 2000's.

    Alex Jones was one of the first in the media sounding the alarm on what was going on in China and telling people to prepare. At some point he changed his mind about its lethality and now thinks its being used to create absolute panic and destroy the world economy.
