This is SO chilling and disturbing. totalitarianism!
WOW! I really am shocked. I also read an article that Trudeau denies that they would use these facilities for such purposes but I won't put un it past them. I'm starting to think and hope the warning comes soon. And I'm glad I consecrated my property and ourselves to the Blessed Virgin and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Jesus I trust in you.
Holy fear is a different thing from worry and anxiety and paralyzing fears of "what if". The fear of the Lord is indeed the beginning of wisdom but slavish worldly fear is another thing entirely. Scripture over and over (psalms are full of this) speak "I will not be afraid" or "I will not fear". Jesus tells us to trust over and over. So to clarify when I say fear is not of God I am not speaking of the reverence and holy fear that every Christian must cultivate but this servile fear that is not of God.
I've read it described this way: if you say something like, "I'm afraid I may have insulted so-and-so," you're not "afraid" in the sense of fearing for your life or safety. You worry about losing that person's love or respect. In likewise, one translation of "fear" may be "respect", but that doesn't capture the regret you should feel for disrespecting G_D.

The Deeper Malice of the Useless Servant
Before addressing the extremely important (and rarely noted) lesson in the parable of today’s Gospel, a few notes.
First, I’d like my readers to sleep soundly Tuesday night, so I should emphasize that, in my last post, I was not (and am not) predicting calamity for this upcoming Wednesday (11/18). I was (and am) simply noting that November 18, 2020 will, in fact, be a horrendous anniversary, and we should mark it with fervent prayer beseeching the Divine Mercy upon this world.
On the other hand, we should be sure to remain vigilant, as it certainly would be unsurprising if the Chastisements were to burst forth upon the world very, very soon. When I wrote my post on Sudden Destruction (quoting II Thessalonians) on Monday of last week, I had no idea that the Scripture reading for the upcoming weekend’s Mass (today, that is) would be precisely that. Noteworthy as well is the fact that this Wednesday, November 18th, is not only the 100th anniversary of legal abortion, it is also the 17th anniversary of same-sex “marriage” first becoming legal in the U.S. (via the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruling on Goodridge vs. Department of Public Health), and it is the 42nd anniversary of the largest “mass suicide” in history: the Jonestown Massacre. (I added the quotation marks due to the fact that in some aspects it was more like a mass homicide.) And how fitting for these anniversaries to so align: suicide is precisely what modern society is engaging in through legalizing same-sex “marriage” and abortion. For not only are these things guaranteed to themselves destroy any society that adopts them, they also happen to constitute two of the four sins that we know, from Scripture, cry out to God for vengeance. November 18th (in 1974) was also the day that the Church came down particularly strongly against any sort of legalization of abortion. Quite a day, November 18th.
Now remember, your calling is to engage in the battle God is calling you to, and have absolutely no fear. Do you remain in a state of grace, go to confession, go to Mass, love and forgive all, do works of mercy, pray the Rosary, pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and strive to Live in the Divine Will? If so, you needn’t have the slightest anxiety regarding what is coming. Even if you live in a small apartment with young children in the middle of a big city, you are nevertheless– by these aforementioned efforts– infinitely more safe than is a billionaire living in an underground bunker in the middle of nowhere.
“Courage, My daughter-courage is of souls resolute to do good. They are imperturbable under any storm; and while they hear the roaring of the thunders and lightnings to the point of trembling, and remain under the pouring rain that pours over them, they use the water to be washed and come out more beautiful; and heedless of the storm, they are more than ever resolute and courageous in not moving from the good they have started. “ – Jesus to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. April 16, 1931
This is all about trying
too hard to read
too much into
too many things.
This is NOT about prophecy,
but about exercises in just
how clever one’s speculations can be.
And it goes on and on and on and on...
at our expense.
Unless we choose not to listen.
Thank God I haven't taken the time to read Daniel O'Connors blog. It seems to be driving everyone nuts.
It is a bit like going into the book makers and making an each way bet. So if you win you get money and if you don't win you still get a little money. Win/win.
I choose not to listen. "Jesus I surrender everything into Your Hands. You take care of it."
you could add all the rest below to 18th November being a significant date lots more if you search the date in history like banning not eating meat on fridays ???
