    So true. As Fr. Goring said in his video, St. Joseph was spiritually awake, and we must be too. If we are spiritually awake, we will be blessed with the knowledge to make the necessary physical preparations.

    There are so many, many strange and scary things going on in China at the moment I am starting to loose count.

    Here is yet another one...I haven't a clue what is going on, apart from the fact that
    the Chinese Communist Party, as usual, is lying like crazy about them..

    I have always been a bit of a "prepper" if you will. I spent a lot of time with my grandparents as kid who grew up during the depression. They never wasted anything and always had extra supplies and food. It was ritual for them to go to the grocery and buy extra stuff then shuffle the stored can goods in the basement up to the pantry and what not. With all that being said, I love the idea of multiplying extra food for those in need but also, at the same time, God doesn't need to multiply anything. He can send down mana from heaven and supply the food we all need. He can even supply food we need then multiply it. This is all scriptural. God can and will do many wonders for us all when in need. How awesome is He!!!!

    Awesome, totally awesome!!!

    I have bought a water filter awhile ago which was suggested by other MOG members and I often buy things in bulk anyway (and like your grandparents I don't like waste, my mom raised us that way) but other than that I trust in God. I am not fearful I gave that up a long time ago now and it is freeing unlike anything that I could imagine. +

    May God bless us all!

    Yes! I've told this to some here before, but last year when I got weary of trying to stock up, I asked God, if I stop worrying about stocking and trust you, will you work miracles for us? (I was thinking of manna from Heaven and water springing up out of a rock). I looked down at that moment and the word "miracle" was written on my baby's toy he was playing with. To this day we have no idea who wrote that.

    I told that story to others in a FB group to encourage them, and I was surprised by a private message from a famous radio host, who gave me hundreds of dollars and told me exactly what food and supplies she wanted me to buy with it. So we have 5 gallon buckets filled with rice, beans, and other things that I never would have afforded on my own.

    I don't know what God has in store for my family, but obviously He chose to provide for us. I'm still so awed and humbled by the whole thing. God is such a good Father.

    I dont have money right now to stock up on things. Nor do quite a few people i know. I must trust in Jesus. He will take care of us. I know it.

  10. a lot of people including US generals like Gen. McInerney are telling us that we are already in WW3, there were huge blasts this year and last year in Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran, and also in a chemical plant in Germany...

  11. Yes he did his research, rice is good for five years so it should be in everyone's priority storage list...

    I don't believe it is the mark per se, but a precursor to the mark. Laying the groundwork. Which means if we don't have the strength or grace to resist this, it's very unlikely we'll have the strength or resolve to resist the ultimate Mark that is on the way.

    Yes, I think one of the things that offends God the most is how little trust we place in him. I bet he was very pleased by your humble prayer for miracles.

  14. Yes, if one is too attached to the world, it would be hard to resist the temptations of the mark of the beast...

    I agree with you that it is not the mark per se. I also think it is a good way to test the waters. However, I must confess, the rest of this post stung me somewhat as I have gotten the vaccine after much prayer and writing to my Bishop for guidance. I trust that Our Lord will grant me the grace and wisdom to recognize and resist the actual “Mark” should it come in my lifetime.

    I'm sorry that my words stung you, that wasn't my intention. I have friends and loved ones who have been vaccinated and I understand their reasons for doing so. The pressure is relentless and has the full backing of the Church hierarchy. I too pray for the grace and wisdom to resist the real thing, but I see this as a sort of practice run to prepare us.

    Edited to add that I haven't yet experienced any real pressure to get the jab myself, like loss of job or likelihood of severe illness. Perhaps if I had I may well have given in. I suppose I need to try and be less smug :(

    You are close to the Lord Shae. He will not let go of you. No one will receive that mark who has been signed by the Blood if the Lamb. I am counting on that.
