Today, just kind of focusing on getting my shoulders to go more like a cartwheel.

Ok, I'll bite:

This applies to Traditional Catholicism... how, exactly?

Okay, I will swallow-

How does three threads on the front page about war in Eastern Europe and the Gaza strip apply to traditional Catholicism ?

This entire forum has a real negative and dark slant to it. Physician heal thyself !

The war in Eastern Europe and Gaza are chastisements from God for our having turned away from Him. The war in Gaza is between Jews and Mohammedans - the two ancient enemies of the the Catholic Church - and it is being waged in the Holy Land itself.

The coming conflict with Russia is a direct result of the failure of the popes to Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as commanded by Our Lady of Fatima. The fact that we are also rapidly nearing the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima just as this conflict is arising would seem to confirm this. More than any time in world history, the stage seems to be set for the coming of Antichrist.

So, in short, it has pretty much everything to do with Traditional Catholicism.

I don't think in terms of "positive" and "negative" (vibes, attitudes, energies or what have you) and I'd encourage everyone to guard their thoughts and words against creeping influences from the New Age movement, else you might find yourself shunning Sacred Scripture itself for being too "negative and dark" - particularly the Book of Apocalypse, in whose prophesied age we may very well be living.

Wouldn't you agree that crossbro is, too—even if only of the flyspeck variety?

Yeah, I am sure Jesus would just love hanging out with you guys. Any sense of joy just points to New Age. Who was it who told us to keep our minds on heaven and not to dwell on the things of the world ?

Stop presuming to know Our Lord's interior disposition. You're not allowed to speculate on your neighbor's interior disposition - you're going to presume you know the Mind of God? If you need another reason to stop listening to Protestants, this is one.

You mean like sports? Neocon talking points? Media fluff pieces about Taco Bell? Pat Robertson? Those things of the world?

Indeed we shouldn't dwell on those things because they're diabolical distractions meant to keep our minds off the things of Heaven. Discussing serious world events that have direct bearing on Scripture and Catholic Prophecy is a reminder that this world is passing away, that our Judgment is near, and that time is running out so we'd better get ourselves in a State of Grace and stay there if we hope to actually get to Heaven. Pop culture and spectator sports are distractions that the Adversary pushes to make us forget all of that and ignore the condition the world is in.

Have you ever read Scripture? Or listened to the Words of Our Lady of Fatima? It's not all sunshine and lollipops. It's serious business - as serious as Eternity itself.

Remember the Four Last Things:

DEATH. JUDGMENT. HEAVEN. HELL.
