What do we do when our leaders won’t lead? What do we do when our leaders turn into tyrants?
Something has got to give. The American people have had enough of the lies and manipulation coming from our elected officials. I don’t believe the man in the White House was lawfully elected and I’m not so sure that anything is going to be done about it.
We are faced with ultimatums and threats if we don’t toe the mask/vaccine line. Our economy is suffering. Professional people are walking off their jobs because of threats. In many places you can’t even walk into a doctor’s office for a well patient check up without being forced to wear a useless face mask, made in China, that doesn’t prevent infection from viruses.
Our southern border is a joke. Members of law enforcement are quitting. It’s gotten so bad that many of them would rather throw away their retirement plans than stay on the job. And who can blame them? The abuse they suffer is obscene.
As citizens we count on our votes to change what isn’t working. Now we can’t even trust that our votes have been properly counted if not changed or deleted altogether.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg. I’m Catholic. And we Catholics have effectively been betrayed by the man in the Vatican. I never saw that coming. I was spoiled, having come into the Church during the reign of John Paul II. I’m angry and frustrated and I can’t remember the last time I felt good about attending Mass. I haven’t lost my faith in God. I’ve lost my faith in the Catholic Church as well as my faith in American government.
Even so, I know it will all work out, one way or the other. God will see us through this whole, huge nightmare. We’ve got to keep praying. We’ve got to speak out. I don’t know how long we will have to put up with these injustices, but I know that God sees all, hears all, and is taking note of our sufferings. Please, Lord, deliver us from the Evil that surrounds us. Amen.
