My post here was intended only for Colleen’s Challenge her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Hurry” and “Last” in any form of poetry. Thinking of those words “Hurry” and “Last” — looking up the synonyms I thought, “forget it for today, I can’t think of anything.”
For a few moments my brain was stuck then quite quickly a Haibun started to develop with many synonyms almost all of them kept flowing from my “P” brain. Well, really not all of the synonyms. Lol ♫
After reading the requirements at dVerse I was inspired to use their Mr. Linky, after all this post is both humorous, sad but true.
Today, this morning, in fact, I was thinking about my Faith, the Traditional Catholic Faith. I hate it when I hear speakers refer to it as a “movement.” A MOVEMENT means to many … a development or evolution. The humor and sad are commingled, however, neither are present when it comes to those who are serious about staying firm to the teachings they have learned from the beginning as stated in the Bible.
I repeat many calls it the Traditional Catholic Movement, but that is so wrong. Wrong because the word “movement” is opposite of what it means to stay, remain steadfast and ignore the progress such as adapting to the world. 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2.
When Vatican II was implemented in the mid 60’s I am reminded of a childhood nursery rhyme about ants. Yes, ants! Those pesky bugs. AND … liberals like to think of Catholics as pesky, I don’t agree but accept their right of opinion. God isn’t finished with them yet!
Back to my point, which is really the humorous part of this entire story.
However, have you ever noticed how when their ANT colonies are invaded, they dash, flurry run with haste and you see nothing but commotion? They seem to spin, turn every which way and whirl around. Then they settle down and reorganize with the remnant that remains. That is the Traditional Catholic Church in allegory, really quite funny when you realize it.
I close with this poem and nursery song; poem first. Nursery song guaranteed to make you smile!
Where are we going?
World moving ending with haste
O God, where are you?
