Is it must me or has the world gone mad?????

I think the world has gone completely nuts!  Have you read (or watched) the news lately?  Here are some headlines that I've seen over the last week.  Read some of these and then try to tell me that there is not something sinister....or....dark happening.  I think, for whatever reason, we have been allowed to be alive at this particular moment in history for a purpose.  All I can say is to LISTEN....WATCH and PRAY.  Lay low and pay attention!

Christmas Tree Banned:  "Religious Symbol"

Rhode Island Governor:  "It's not tradition to call it a Christmas Tree.....

Men busted for tailing UPS truck and stealing gifts....

Hundreds of donated gifts stolen from church.....

Baby Jesus goes missing....

Church cuts Charlie Brown play after backlash....

Lawsuit threat cancels Christmas concert....

Berkeley students seek ban on Salvation Army bell ringers....

America suffering baby shortage....

Brad Pitt:  The kids want me to marry their mom....

Vermont Governor "confident" assisted suicide will pass next year....

Federal tax dollars being used to prepare for a "zombie apocalypse"...

I mean...am I the only one who is wondering what in the heck is going on? 

Sometimes, I believe that I was born in the wrong era.  Do you ever feel like that?  The older I get, the more conservative I get...the more "old-fashioned"....the more plain...the more ordinary I'm becoming.  I'm just not sure that the way that our society is "progressing" is really good for us.

I don't know, I'm just rambling.  All I know is that I hesitate to read the news these days.  I skip it for several days, and then, when I think I'm brave enough to check it...these are the types of stories that are being reported.

What must Our Lord think?

Nancy, I honestly feel exactly the same way you do. It's scary. I think about all of this, and I wonder how long until the Three Days of Darkness. How much worse WILL it get?.

Frightening...

The world is trying to make martyrs out of us--but not in a physical "kill the Christian" kind of way. Worse, it's a spiritual way. Stay strong!

My daughter Laura just shared similar lamentations this morning. . . wondering "what the heck is going on in this world"...in this "nation" to be more specific...God have mercy and bless the poor souls of those dear, SWEET CHILDREN who were mercilessly MURDERED at school today. My heart breaks for those who mourn them.
