I saw this picture of the Catholic Knight blog and something about it stopped me and held my attention. When Sharon Stone (revolting woman, yes) said that perhaps China was reaping what it sowed in sins with its earthquake many people responded angrily. She even lost her modeling gig with Dior. I know it's unpopular to even mention that God still judges the nations but didn't our Lady say at Fatima that war was a punishment for sin? Didn't she plead time and time again for nations to repent? And isn't there an horrible amount of bad right here, right now in this country? I'm not even going to get into the abortion crime -- Americans are obsesessed with mindless sex and teenagers chat blythely about acts of fornication that would've made their grandfather's blush with shame to even mention out loud. A good chunk of our population worships animals and nature. Homosexality has become something that you dare not criticize in public. Marriage has been horribly weakend by no fault easy divorce laws and cohabitation is practiced openly. Bastardy is not considered something to be avoided anymore. It's as if most of us have lost our minds. And yet, when I look at this picture I feel hope. Some bad stuff is coming down the pike for this country and being a democracy we will have it coming to us ---good and hard too---but the church that Christ handed to Peter will go on. Love will go on. In the end Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph.
