An Allegory

I heard this allegory that is so fitting to our world today.  "We are like frogs who are put in a pot of water, as the water is heated up, the frog does not jump out of the pot.  Instead he falls asleep and is killed."

We are the frogs in the pot of this world and we are the souls which are falling asleep and letting our society run amok.

We as Christians must stand up for God's truth,
we must follow the teachings of the church,
we must stay focused on Jesus and not be swayed.

Our Lady of Fatima warned against "diabolical disorientation" in the latter 20th Century and on.  She warned how, "We cannot and we must not stop ourselves, nor allow, as Our Lord says, the children of Darkness to be wiser than the children of Light... The Rosary is the most powerful weapon for defending ourselves on the field of battle."

Those words of "We cannot let the children of Darkness be wiser than the children of Light" jumped right out at me.  How do we become wiser?  Through prayer and fasting.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who predicted in the middle 1800s, “Every American would have a black box in their home through which the devil would enter.”  The TV?  Or Computer?  It could be either because both in and of itself are morally neutral, it's what we do with them that counts.  Does it keep us from devoting time in prayer?  Reading scripture?  Praying as a family?  Spending time together as a family?

 It is because the devil has succeeded in infiltrating evil under the cover of good, and the blind are beginning to guide others, as the Lord tells us in His Gospel, and souls are letting themselves be deceived... this is another message Our Lady gave to Sister Lucy.

Then, I ask myself, how can we be so easily deceived if we have the gifts of the Holy Spirit?  

I heard a priest talk about St. Thomas More and he said "it was a daily battle to stop the mutterings, which lead to negligence that separates me further from God."

We must remember the Holy Spirit is here to give us His gifts because we can do nothing on our own.

May God Richly Bless You,

  3. This is convicting "we cannot let the children of darkness be wiser than the children of light" Scary thought!!! It's so easy for anyone to become wiser, just spend time with Him and ASK! He gives abundantly to those who ask!


  4. Thanks Patty! But I must be honest, my post was a compilation of thoughts and ideas from others that I wove together. I was so struck by Our Lady's warnings and felt that I need to check myself "for where I have fallen asleep."

    Holly- Thank you for your support! There are so many blessings that come from praying the rosary... meditating on the Gospel readings of our Lord. I will try and remember next Monday to come over to your Tuesday Meme. (What does Meme mean?)

    Momof4 - That same comment from Our Lady about children of darkness and children of light, jumped right out at me. We are the children and we can only be one or the other... no middle ground here. We can't be neutral... we must choose a side.
