“This colony of British Catholics, was the first to establish on American soil, the blessings of civil and religious freedom for all mankind.”
“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
– George Washington, in his Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, Oct. 3, 1789
C.S. Lewis famously wrote that God shouts to us in our pain. It is, he said, God’s “megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” But rarely does it change us. Maybe we don’t recognize his voice. Overwhelmed by frustration and anger, perhaps we are loath to hear his plea. Mostly, we linger. Mostly, we remain paralyzed.
Physical pain is unavoidable. Defiled by corruption, destruction, disintegration, and decay, our flesh incessantly pursues its return to the earth. Our bodies begin to die from the moment of conception, the clock ticking off the finite years, days, and hours of our physical existence from even before our birth. But emotional pain is no less insistent, no more willing to take a back seat. Often, it presses itself to the forefront, overwhelms our being, and triggers physical distress.

In 2010, the Public Prosecutor of Rome made a preventive seizure of 23 million Euros transferred by the Institute for Religious Works (IOR, or “Vatican bank”) from an account it held in the Italian bank Credito Artigiano, now Credito Valtellinese.

- Pope to Mafia: “Change, You still have time to not end up in hell. That is what awaits you, if you continue down this path.”
“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again.
However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” — Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain.

Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin’s speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn’t get a chance to read it, and missed its importance.
(For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning.
Regardless of what you think or don’t think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.
