Pope Francis and America's Coming "My Chcemy Boga" moment

The crowd responded with thunder.

We want God!” they shouted, together. “We want God!”

What a moment in mod­ern his­tory: We want God. From the mouths of mod­ern men and women liv­ing in a mod­ern athe­is­tic dictatorship.

WSJ Peggy Noo­nan April 7th 2005

Kevin Lomax: In the Bible, you lose. We’re des­tined to lose, Dad.

The Devil’s Advo­cate 1997

Here on Easter Sun­day we fin­ish quite a Holy Week. We have the MSM declar­ing it “Gay Mar­riage Week”, me sug­gest­ing the Yel­low Cross as a twit­ter badge since we’re going to be marked for respect­ing our Chris­t­ian Faith any­way (if you don’t believe me ask why John Hop­kins con­sid­ers Pro-​Life the equiv­a­lent of White suprema­cists.

We’ve also talked about Pope Bene­dict XVI as Pope John Paul I, the lion­iza­tion of Pope Fran­cis by the left , the absolute love of a hum­ble Jesuit Pope from His­pan­ics as one of them and the wild card this Pope is.

This all por­tends what is com­ing and today on this day of hope and redemp­tion for Chris­tians is the day to explain it.

Fran­cis through act after act of sin­cere humil­ity has been charmed the MSM. The wall to wall cov­er­age while of intense inter­est to us, is sim­ply back­ground noise to the low infor­ma­tion voter that the media uses to their effect.

Yet that back­ground noise has been estab­lish­ing a sin­gle con­sis­tent nar­ra­tive: Pope Fran­cis as the hum­ble ser­vant of God a dif­fer­ent kind of Pope.

Now to us of the faith, this is noth­ing extra­or­di­nary as he IS a hum­ble man of the faith but to the peo­ple who do not pay atten­tion and only catch the word in pass­ing through the odd TV show play­ing, the assorted news report or the mag­a­zine in the Doctor’s office it’s a mes­sage that they’re not used to get­ting. He is doing as Father Z explains:

I think what Pope Fran­cis is up to is try­ing to project, re-​project, is an image of the Church as com­pas­sion­ate. He is try­ing to help peo­ple remem­ber (or learn for the first time) that she is actu­ally all about com­pas­sion, char­ity in its truest form.

We’ve lost the mes­sage and we have to get it back.

And while the media sees this and pushes it for­ward they (per­haps mind­ful of his pop­u­lar­ity with the grow­ing His­panic pop­u­la­tion in the US, per­haps con­vinced or hope­ful that the tide of his­tory is bring­ing this pope to their way of think­ing) ignores him echo­ing lines that Richard McBrien said would dis­qual­ify Joseph Ratzinger from any chance of win­ning a papal election

At the very same time, the media with the same nar­cis­sism that is their hall­mark and last­ing legacy of the Baby Boomers they wor­ship, is as Eliz­a­beth Scalia puts it:

…almost ready to decon­struct a fun­da­men­tal social under­stand­ing com­mon to every cul­ture for thou­sands of years, because of a con­ceit that we have become so much more enlight­ened, in the last fifty.

to the point where the faith­ful will soon be derided with­out embar­rass­ment or restraint.

Mean­while the coun­try suf­fer­ing through four very bad years has the imple­men­ta­tion of Oba­macare ahead. While you can’t out­law the busi­ness cycle, when more and more com­pa­nies cut­ting back or don’t hire full time to avoid the penal­ties of the humor­ously named “afford­able care act” mid­dle class fam­i­lies, par­tic­u­larly on the lower end will find them­selves hit again Which choice will they take, the cost of buy­ing heath insur­ance on their own or the huge tax penalty.

Then there are all the issues and the fam­ily prob­lems and strife that come from eco­nomic hard­ship. Anger, frus­tra­tion, domes­tic prob­lems and all the vices they lead to that peo­ple use to for­get, drugs and alco­hol, infi­delity, and that’s not even assum­ing it leads to thiev­ery and worse.

In a soci­ety with strong faith and fam­ily struc­tures, these things can be over­come but in a soci­ety where the media elites have spent nearly three gen­er­a­tions try­ing to remove God from the equa­tion the end result is despair.

While these symp­toms grow how many will notice the vicar of Christ at the very begin­ning of his new office diag­nosed it:

But there is another form of poverty! It is the spir­i­tual poverty of our time, which afflicts the so-​called richer coun­tries par­tic­u­larly seri­ously. It is what my much-​loved pre­de­ces­sor, Bene­dict XVI, called the “tyranny of rel­a­tivism”, which makes every­one his own cri­te­rion and endan­gers the coex­is­tence of peo­ples. And that brings me to a sec­ond rea­son for my name. Fran­cis of Assisi tells us we should work to build peace. But there is no true peace with­out truth! There can­not be true peace if every­one is his own cri­te­rion, if every­one can always claim exclu­sively his own rights, with­out at the same time car­ing for the good of oth­ers, of every­one, on the basis of the nature that unites every human being on this earth.

And a fel­low named Joel iden­ti­fied the solu­tion even before the days of Christ:

Yet even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart, with fast­ing, and weep­ing, and mourning;

Rend your hearts, not your gar­ments, and return to the LORD, your God. For gra­cious and mer­ci­ful is he, slow to anger, rich in kind­ness, and relent­ing in pun­ish­ment. Per­haps he will again relent and leave behind him a bless­ing, Joel 2:12-14b

And not today, not tomor­row maybe even not for a few years as things get to their absolute nader as Ame­ica expe­ri­ences the dark­ness of their Good Fri­day, will come Fran­cis I the lion­ized, hum­ble and mes­sen­ger of Christ who the media has already described as a “dif­fer­ent” kind of Pope.

He will come to this coun­try and bring that same humil­ity his name implies, but he will also bring with him the mes­sage of Christ, undi­luted, undis­guised and unam­bigu­ous just as his other name­sake implies.

And when he does so to a coun­try sim­ply thirst­ing for both truth and hope at that moment will the eyes be opened across the land. The peo­ple will see the church for what it truly is. The media will see Fran­cis as he is and always has been and will attack with such venom their wrath at John Paul II & Bene­dict XVI will seem calm by com­par­i­son. And at that point those who cel­e­brate Fran­cis the most will see that same media for what they are, see the empti­ness of the false par­adise they have pro­claimed and cry out with a loud voice in Eng­lish & Span­ish those word made famous by the Poles: “We Want God!” “Quer­e­mos a Dios!”

That cry will echo from sea to sea, from small towns to big cities from Hol­ly­wood to the halls on con­gress and it will be heard.

Some might laugh at this sug­ges­tion, just as peo­ple laughed at pos­si­bil­ity that the Bishop of Rome could pos­si­bly lead to the fall of Com­mu­nism in Poland, let alone any­where else.

It was a decade from those first cries for com­mu­nism to fall and it will take decades and gen­er­a­tions for that same cry in Eng­lish and Span­ish to res­onate to the point where the walls of sec­u­lar nar­cis­sism built up so care­fully over a life­time will like Jeri­cho come tum­bling down. The media will do its best to shore it up as their empty bar­ren gen­er­a­tion dies and fades into the dust­bin of history.

And while with these eyes I won’t live to see that final vic­tory, God will­ing I will be there to see the moment when it all begins.

It will be as glo­ri­ous as the risen Christ.

Well last week I missed my pay­check by $78 bucks but peo­ple had Easter and passover things to buy so that’s under­stand­able. And con­sid­er­ing the week before I missed my pay­check by $273 it’s a vast improvement.

Easter sea­son is a time of faith and it will take more that two short pay­checks for me to lose the faith I have in my readers.

It’s a new week and a new ther­mome­ter so we’ll just see if we can find those 15 peo­ple will­ing to kick in that $20.





The crowd responded with thunder.

“We want God!” they shouted, together. “We want God!”

What a moment in modern history: We want God. From the mouths of modern men and women living in a modern atheistic dictatorship.

Kevin Lomax: In the Bible, you lose. We’re destined to lose, Dad.

The Devil’s Advocate 1997

Here on Easter Sunday we finish quite a Holy Week.  We have the MSM declaring it “Gay Marriage Week”, me suggesting  the Yellow Cross as a twitter badge since we’re going to be marked for respecting our Christian Faith anyway (if you don’t believe me ask why John Hopkins considers Pro-Life the equivalent of White supremacists.

We’ve also talked about Pope Benedict XVI as Pope John Paul I, the lionization of Pope Francis by the left , the absolute love of a humble Jesuit Pope from Hispanics as  one of them and the wild card this Pope is.

This all portends what is coming and today on this day of hope and redemption for Christians is the day to explain it.

 

Francis through act after act of sincere humility has been charmed the MSM.  The wall to wall coverage while of intense interest to us, is simply background noise to the low information voter that the media uses to their effect.

Yet that background noise has been establishing a single consistent narrative:  Pope Francis as the humble servant of God a different kind of Pope.

Now to us of the faith, this is nothing extraordinary as he IS a humble man of the faith but to the people who do not pay attention and only catch the word in passing through the odd TV show playing, the assorted news report or the magazine in the Doctor’s office it’s a message that they’re not used to getting.  He is doing as Father Z explains:

I think what Pope Francis is up to is trying to project, re-project, is an image of the Church as compassionate.  He is trying to help people remember (or learn for the first time) that she is actually all about compassion, charity in its truest form.

We’ve lost the message and we have to get it back.

And while the media sees this and pushes it forward they (perhaps mindful of his popularity with the growing Hispanic population in the US, perhaps convinced or hopeful that the tide of history is bringing this pope to their way of thinking) ignores him echoing lines that Richard McBrien said would disqualify Joseph Ratzinger from any chance of winning a papal election

At the very same time, the media with the same narcissism that is their hallmark and  lasting legacy of the Baby Boomers they worship, is  as Elizabeth Scalia puts it:

…almost ready to deconstruct a fundamental social understanding common to every culture for thousands of years, because of a conceit that we have become so much more enlightened, in the last fifty.

to the point where the faithful will soon be derided without embarrassment or restraint.

Meanwhile the country suffering through four very bad years has the implementation of Obamacare ahead.  While you can’t outlaw the business cycle, when more and more companies cutting back or don’t hire full time to avoid the penalties of the humorously named “affordable care act” middle class families, particularly on the lower end will find themselves hit again   Which choice will they take, the cost of buying heath insurance on their own or the huge tax penalty.

Then there are all the issues and the family problems and strife that come from economic hardship. Anger, frustration, domestic problems and all the vices they lead to that people use to forget, drugs and alcohol, infidelity, and that’s not even  assuming it leads to thievery and worse.

In a society with strong faith and family structures, these things can be overcome but in a society where the media elites have spent nearly three generations trying to remove God from the equation the end result is despair.

While these symptoms grow how many will notice the vicar of Christ at the very beginning of his new office diagnosed it:

But there is another form of poverty! It is the spiritual poverty of our time, which afflicts the so-called richer countries particularly seriously. It is what my much-loved predecessor, Benedict XVI, called the “tyranny of relativism”, which makes everyone his own criterion and endangers the coexistence of peoples. And that brings me to a second reason for my name. Francis of Assisi tells us we should work to build peace. But there is no true peace without truth! There cannot be true peace if everyone is his own criterion, if everyone can always claim exclusively his own rights, without at the same time caring for the good of others, of everyone, on the basis of the nature that unites every human being on this earth.

And a fellow named Joel identified the solution even before the days of Christ:

Yet even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;

Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.  Perhaps he will again relent and leave behind him a blessing, Joel 2:12-14b

And not today, not tomorrow maybe even not for a few years as things get to their absolute nader as Ameica experiences the darkness of their Good Friday, will come Francis I the lionized, humble and messenger of Christ who the media has already described as a “different” kind of Pope.

He will come to this country and bring that same humility his name implies, but he will also bring with him the message of Christ, undiluted, undisguised and unambiguous just as his other namesake implies.

And when he does so to a country simply thirsting for both truth and hope at that moment will the eyes be opened across the land. The people will see the church for what it truly is. The media will see Francis as he is and always has been and will attack with such venom their wrath at John Paul II & Benedict XVI will seem calm by comparison. And at that point those who celebrate Francis the most will see that same media for what they are, see the emptiness of the false paradise they have proclaimed and cry out with a loud voice in English & Spanish those word made famous by the Poles: “We Want God!” “Queremos a Dios!”

That cry will echo from sea to sea, from small towns to big cities from Hollywood to the halls on congress and it will be heard.

Some might laugh at this suggestion, just as people laughed at possibility that the Bishop of Rome could possibly lead to the fall of Communism in Poland, let alone anywhere else.

It was a decade from those first cries for communism to fall and it will take decades and generations for that same cry in English and Spanish to resonate to the point where the walls of secular narcissism built up so carefully over a lifetime will like Jericho come tumbling down. The media will do its best to shore it up as their empty barren generation dies and fades into the dustbin of history.

And while with these eyes I won’t live to see that final victory, God willing I will be there to see the moment when it all begins.

It will be as glorious as the risen Christ.

Well last week I missed my paycheck by $78 bucks but people had Easter and passover things to buy so that’s understandable. And considering the week before I missed my paycheck by $273 it’s a vast improvement.

Easter season is a time of faith and it will take more that two short paychecks for me to lose the faith I have in my readers.

It’s a new week and a new thermometer so we’ll just see if we can find those 15 people willing to kick in that $20.
