They say that during pandemics, people turn to religion in record numbers, which anecdotally, I see happening. It happened to myself and my wife. I honestly believe that I wouldn't have become so faithful without COOFID.Being in Michigan, I've become so angry with this Whitmer dictatorship we are under. And now this "Vacc to Normal" stuff sort of put me over the edge. I try to ignore it, but it's difficult. My friends out of state in normal areas like TN and TX think I'm losing my mind.
Then I thought, do I ever care about going back to normal? Normal to these clown is a life of consumerism, bars, debauchery, mindless tasks to fill the day. If anything, you would think the State would want to do anything they can to get back to normal asap as this creates the most slavery for them. Mental slavery. Slavery to vices. A disgusting clown world.
This morning I had a revelation. Over the past year, I've become closer to God than ever. I've moved from a secular life into being fully confirmed into a church. I've grown closer than ever to my fiance. I've understood the world more. What really could be better than the times we are in now? The opportunity to evangelize is ripe. I see so many people suffering. What better way to evangelize and save souls than to relate this suffering to the suffering of Christ on the cross and death for our sins.
So, forget normal. These are great times we are in. And it's happening for a reason.
Even with lockdowns, the Church I attend is filling up their list of attendees in 30 mins. We used to have one Mass on Sunday, now there is 3.
