Well, it looks like we have an exciting year ahead of us. Socio-Political tensions here in the US are torqued to near a breaking point. Pope Francis has refused to clarify the dubia submitted to him, on the now famous ambiguous footnote in Amoris Laetitia, which implys active adultery is not an obstacle to receiving Holy Communion. The prelates who submitted the dubia have said, that if the problem isn’t resolved, they will issue a formal correction of the Pope! We haven’t seen something like this since the middle ages. There are other tensions in the Church as well, here too it is wound to a breaking point.
On the spiritual plane 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the warnings of Our lady of Fatima, the 300th anniversary of the establishment of Freemasonry, and the 500th anniversary of the foundation of Protestantism. I claim no hidden knowledge, but it seems to me that things are ripe for something big and culture shifting to happen. I pray it be good and not evil. Perhaps we will see both. Kyrie Eleison.
On the subject of the anniversary of Luther’s 95 thesis I will soon begin my series on Protestant mythologies.
