Easter Mourning

I started to write this mourning about the fuel of fear in fanaticism. And then I realized I had written it.

I started to write this mourning about the conflict of anti-Catholicism. And then I realized I had written it.

I started to write this mourning about the ending of a friendship. And then I realized I had written it.

I started to write this mourning about my apprehensions for the future. And then I realized it was written.

I’ve seen the future of fanatical patriotism.


Your fist isn’t big enough to hold a weapon and a rosary; put down your gun and pick up your cross. Your feet aren’t strong enough to withstand the horrific; take off your boots and fall to your knees. Your soul isn’t good enough to forsake the Sacraments; bow your head to God and confess your contrition. Your knowledge isn’t wise enough to deem the degrees; temper your temptations and adhere to the Ten Commandments. Your faith isn’t strong enough to endure the persecutions of your heresy; bind your tongue and close your mouth. What you’ve held bound is bound. Your soul is chained by your crimes against Christ and shackled by sin; let loose the noose you’ve placed around the neck of your neighbor. Your soul hangs in His balance. God created all things and keeps them in existence. Why do you fear evil? Evil exists. He doesn’t create; he doesn’t destroy. Fear The Father. Cling to The Christ. Harbor The Holy Spirit. The Synchronicity of Divinity. When all Three Personages of The Holy Trinity are present - there dwells God. When one is absent, the presence of the Present isn’t present. Defend your life? Redefine your. Did you bring yourself into existence? Defend the one who is The One. The one true God who is God. You are wrong; You’ve wronged. Amend your life. It’s Palm Sunday. Open your palm and look at it. The time is at hand. But you can’t see it. You’ve made a fist.
