"... I believe God is going to reveal what is behind the “facade” of governments, institutions, and individual hearts. And this is why there are so many divisions in the Church and the world today: God is sifting His people."

Mark Mallett is frighteningly right
The Judas Prophecy
"No civilization in their right minds would ever choose to self-destruct. And yet, here we are in 2012 watching the Western world contracept itself out of existence, abort its future, vigorously debate the legalization of “mercy killing”, and impose these policies of “reproductive health care” upon the rest of the world (in exchange for receiving aid money). And yet, brothers and sisters, many in our Western culture view this as “progress” and a “right,” even though our populations are aging and—save for immigration—rapidly shrinking. We are virtually committing “suicide”.

diagnosis of madness ....
Perverse quest for crude, biological pleasure is pushing the whole western civilization into madness. Nobody is reacting, nobody is protesting being afraid to be accused of judgmentalism or rudeness. Political correctness and "niceness" are the most important and the only correct attitudes toward the capricious and decadent society. This seems to be a mass suicide; moral, cultural and sociological in an atmosphere of universal permissiveness .... And everybody seems to be happy and satisfied ... For how long?
Evil and immorality are becoming more and more arrogant and the moral tsunami going through the entire western civilization is leaving after its successive waves a total disaster and absolute ruins. It's a kind of well known truism that the civilization is dying ...
And people are "eating and drinking, selling and buying, planting and building" ..... being absolutely unaware of what is really going on with this perverse civilization. Like on the Titanic
"Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed."

Sir 24, 1-2.8-12
Eph 1, 6.15-18
John 1, 1-18
In the beginning was the Word ... He came to His own and His own people did not accept Him ...
The words of today's Gospel are a repetition of what we heard on the Christmas Day. It's a great hymn of St. John, where the author, the youngest apostle of Christ gives us in full the profundity of the theological truth about Jesus the Son of God - the Word made flesh, Light, Life and Truth. These words are so beautiful and extremely profound, but it seems that they are difficult to understand and sometimes, "we let them pass by near or over our heads." However, I think one needs to grow up in a certain intelligence, to understand their depth and surrender to their inner strength and power, so that they become full of meaning and splendor for the listener. You have to let you be absorbed by its wisdom and taste them slowly and without haste, like poetry, which reveals its profundity only to experts. Unfortunately, we often cannot afford that, we are much too busy and too rational.
What John the Apostle wants to tell us, is primarily a bottomless truth about the mystery of the Incarnation, which becomes more understandable when you combine it with the mystery of the Redemption. God became man, lived in the human world, from His fullness He gave us "grace upon grace". This alone can clarify and justify the coming of God into the world in human flesh. All that we are and what we will be, all we have and we can have, absolutely everything, we have from Him and through Him ...
John in his prologue also highlights another truth. Sad and frightening truth, the truth that this God, God-Man, Who came to His creature, by this creature was rejected, unrecognized, neglected, and even ... negated. It is, as if a product, furniture, table, car produced by a human ... told the creator: "I do not know you, you do not exist, I created you, you're just a fabrication of my sick imagination ..."
Often, that's what happens when kids wanting a freedom or "emancipation" with some incredibly perverse mentality reproach and with absurd bitterness turn to their parents, saying: "I am in the world where I did not ask to be! Why did you give me a birth? I do not know you and do not I want to know you! And then, what parents can say? How can they respond to this kind of "wisdom"?
Is it not that I'm resembling this capricious and spoiled child who wants to "liberate himself from an oppressive parental care"?
