16 September 2018. A Point to Ponder from Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger of Blessed Memory

________________________

Everyone, I think, should take free time to be alone, to think about the past and the present. Unfortunately, we don’t have that much free time, but we need to find it, because everyone needs to connect with their conscience and look into their soul, especially, those of us who’ve reached the twilight of their years.

His Holiness Aleksei Ridiger

Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias

1990-2008

I’m Still Here… Going Through Some Dicey Times in the Real World

________________________

I’ve been silent online for a while. That’s because real-world concerns are taking up my time. Firstly, my Nicky’s health hasn’t been good. He’s physically frail, but he doesn’t have dementia yet. That is, he’s not in good shape, but his mind is still there. On top of that, I’ve been working overtime to catch up on bills and the rent. That does take a high priority. I’ll be back, no doubt. However, I’m takin’ care of business (as I should). Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

No matter what, I know where my duty lies. I’ll never abandon Nicky… I’ll stay with him until the end, God willing. Love demands that… we’re Christians; that’s what we do.

1 July 2018. The USA Has Gone Crazy…

_________________________

Reflecting on the path that the USA has taken since the time of Slobberin’ Ronnie Reagan, it becomes clear that the USA has become a psychopathic society. Any society that elevates moneygrubbing filth like Steve Jobs, Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerburg, Hillary Clinton, and Jeff Bezos has lost its collective mind. The problem is that this psychopathic society has nuclear weapons and is willing to use them, even in a fit of childish pique. It struts about shouting to all sundry how moral and benevolent it is… when the opposite is clearly abundant to all except Americans.

I can’t mince my words. America has become an evil society obsessed with money, power, and arrogant showmanship. There’s little that you or I can do of it… however, we can stop the monster in whatever small ways that we can. One way is to stop the money-worship put in place by filth like the Clintons and Reagan. We’re at the end, not the beginning, of a historical cycle. The present neoliberal abomination is unstable and ready to collapse. Our job is to see that its collapse hurts as few as possible. What’ll replace the present evil system? I haven’t a clue… no one does, however, we must do what we can to build a just and humane society for our children and grandchildren.

Deus Vult…

1 July 2018. A Very Happy Birthday to a Friend

________________________

You know who you are. I’m not naming you for there are those who’d give you grief for being my friend. May the Good God keep you and yours… may you have the strength to face the adversities that WILL come your way and the largeness of soul to enjoy the good things that life has to offer. My love to you and to all those around you. I bow low before you on this day… keep it focused and sweet…

Сотвори господи на многая лета
