The restrictions of 2020/2021 seemed to have collectively damaged the minds of people. It’s like a form of PTSD caused by restriction of freedom.
My wife and myself have heavenly protection. This produces a noticeable reaction when we are walking out and about or I’m alone in the streets. Young men glare at me with a look of death, like they want to kill me. In a way this makes me smile because Its confirmation that Jesus is with me. People around you who are full of sin and who do not like Jesus will have a spiritual allergy to you. When I’m glared at I glare back and stay calm. I know I’m safe and feel that especially more if internally praying. Continual Hail Mary’s on loop in hostile situations really repels evil.
In my last job and current job I’ve been bullied but when I say an internal hail Mary these people’s actions and interactions with me are blocked and muted. A rosary creates a freeze in time, you can hear a pin drop. Once the prayers stop with worldly distractions the crazyness resumes…..cue action hostility.
In London on a civic level people have lost their humanity towards eachother. The PTSD and ‘me and my concerns and needs’ over rides everything. I sense a boiling civil disorder like the ones leaking out in twitter.
Local Catholic churches become more protestant as fellowship amongst people is promoted but not proper reverence to the Eucharist. The boot boy eucharistic ministers diminish priestly roles as they walk across the altar as if they were gliding around in their own front room.
One thing to remember is that the tabernacle resembles the second Jewish temple. Only a saintly priest could approach this holy area once a year to be near to God’s presence. This is devalued now in the modern mass with these eucharistic ministers trampling about sacred ground. When I observe them in reality they seem like the thugs of Golgotha under the guise of ‘ being helpful’. A sinister intervention into the church to diminish the Eucharist without us noticing.
At mass I’ve also noticed congregants opening up their arms during the Our Father. This I find infuriating.
It’s not Catholic tradition. We have our sacraments thank you and that as all we need. At mass I’m their for Jesus not other people.
