What I think:
President Biden is right. Mr. Putin is a killer. And he’s about to prove it on the world stage. Journalists already know it because they have been targets for years. St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
Unfortunately it looks like the prophecy of Our Lady of Fatima continues to unfold because her requests were not heeded in time to prevent Russia from spreading her errors. The disease of Soviet domination yet thrives in the infected host of Vladimir Putin. It’s the Machiavellian ethic at work through the prince of this world. The prince’s end of Russian rule justifies the means of destroying democracies in Ukraine and the world. Mr. Putin is in the process of proving he’s a Red Czar who longs to shed red blood in order to amass power. He’s not true royalty but longs to live lavishly and does.
I hope this is but a living, waking nightmare of mine and I will be proven delusional. I really do. Time will tell. I am grateful at least that I fasted on bread and water three days last week to avert this catastrophe.
My weapons are non violent. Because the ends do not justify violent means on my part. Ever.
I will some day perish, maybe sooner than later, but this much I do know: in the end, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. That’s what matters to me. She will crush the serpentine philosophy of Machiavellian ethics in the prince of this world with her heel.
The question is how much blood will be shed and how many souls lost because her prophecy was not listened to soon enough.
