…. I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…. the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs (morals)….
They will focus principally on the children to sustain this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times!
Word prompt – Frantic – My humble advice for what its worth.
People become frantic in life because they don’t know their purpose in life. Seek and you will discover, ask and you will receive. God created humans with an immortal soul and with a definite purpose.
Think about the reason for living; the same for everyone, to Know, Love and Served God in this life so that we will be perfectly happy with Him in the next life.
It is very true that we all have different circumstances, talents, and cultures but it is written within us our goal in life.
Stop again and think about the purpose of life a lesson forgotten that leads to “FRANTIC“!
Knowing, Loving and Serving God is the purpose of our life and the key to fill that empty void we all experience from time to time.
How to Know Him? Pick up and hold that crucifix in your hands, feel the suffering and you will begin to Know Him. This precious Baby born to us is now dying on the Cross. (Holy Week). Tomorrow is Good Friday, GOOD because He has purchased heaven for us and opened its gates, which were locked.
I hope you have read through this post and down to where you reached my simple Tanka poem about our purpose in life.
My opinion of why the New World Order will be INEFFICIENT in the form of Political poetry authored by myself.
Thank you, Colleen Chesebro, on getting me hooked on the different types of poetry.
But first Tra La ♫ … A quote from the Bible about books, one book you will want your name entered into, no doubt about it!
“There shall not enter into it any thing defiled, or that worketh abomination or maketh a lie, but they that are written in the book of life of the Lamb.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 21:27]
“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 22:19]
My very first attempt at a
BUTTERFLY CINQUAIN BELOW
syllable count 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2
Some poets center the lines to create a butterfly shape as I did here.

I felt like writing a Tanka poem today!
I begin today
Should I climb on top a hill
Or just kneel to pray
Will He answer presently
Or should I choose therapy
Or should I choose therapy
Q can also be for “Quote” and at the end of this post I have one.
One definition of Christian Faith would be to believe what we do not see; in other words, things that are invisible to our eyes.
Many do not understand how we can believe and have strong devotions for something that is invisible.
Not a perfect analogy but imagine looking out your window day after day and seeing the same landscape or buildings; each day the security of viewing this scene will be there today and tomorrow. One day however a heavy fog moves in and all you can see is nothing but fog. Your everyday scene becomes invisible, however, you know it is there.
The time given to us now is the time for Faith, to believe the things that are unseen either from our eyes or invisible with our understanding. That is Faith!
It is my hope someday we will all meet in heaven; there we will find absolute truth, but no need for Christian Faith. If you are having difficulty understanding this, let this quote from St. Augustine explain it better than I can.
Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we have believed.
~ St. Augustine
word prompt INVISIBLE
My post here is an acceptance to Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry, her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Joy” and “Fury” my choice was “Elation” and “Passion” –
My post of yesterday Titled: “A World Without HIS Cross – WHAT IF?” I felt inspired to compose a Tanka Poem to be included in my post of yesterday – HERE for those interested in reading, my use of the same synonyms of “Joy” and “Fury.” Synonyms there are italicized.
Some unbelievers like to say if He was God why did He suffer so much pain, disgrace, and shame. He, as you say; can do all things why didn’t He just blink His eyes and open heaven’s gates.
Why not just Will it; the very fact of His Will purchased us?
It is a fact that the above could have happened in just that way, for God can do all things, and knows all things.
Try to imagine the world without the Cross. Ask yourself, what if there were no Cross?
We would have no Lent, no Resurrection and definitely no appreciation. No crucifix hanging on our walls, no rosary to pray no tears indeed to shed. A world without Christian devotions, without His Passion depicted in Christian Art.
There would be no need for the priesthood since there would be no reason for the holy sacrifice of the Mass nor the Blessed Sacrament upon our altars. Nothing to celebrate except to celebrate as in presumption. Without the cross, our religion leads one to Presumption, glory without merit, salvation without keeping the Commandments, or expectation of pardon for sin without repentance. A presumption is what man-made “Christians” should fear; they glory in the Resurrection; hide from the crucifixion, remember too there were only three at the foot of the Cross when He died.
“O wicked presumption, whence camest thou to cover the earth with thy malice, and deceitfulness?”
No Cross no Passion
What if God just waved us in?
God can do all things
Just a simple come on in
Wonder would we follow Him?
