Covid Has Revealed Spiritual Void In Society

Covid Has Revealed Spiritual Void In Society

From the YouTube Platform…

That [irritating, jarring] sound you can occasionally hear during the video is a rooster; interviewee, Paul, lives on a smallholding in Ireland!

What an excellent discussion. He articulated his thoughts around this subject clearly and perfectly. What troubled times we are living through 😒
Freddie has emerged as one of the finest, most impartial interviewers in media. Streets ahead of any I’ve seen on BBC.  Excellent.
It’s nice that this guy is trying to stay neutral but there’s only one side of this debate that is trying to censor the other side. Why would you trust the side that is censoring people?

A short, but great analysis again: “The virus has revealed a great spiritual void”  Thanks to channels like Unherd I still believe there’s a way out of this mess/madness.

As an American, I was horrified during the extended lockdowns in the U.S. — I worked for a hospital, and they handed out signs for our cars so that no one would stop us or be suspicious about our being on the roads during the day. Then some states had tattle tale hotlines if out of state cars were seen in your neighborhood. The fact that ppl were nervous about driving around in the U.S. should have stayed unimaginable. People so quickly fell into this fear.

I think we’d all agree with Paul Kingsnorth that Covid has revealed the huge spiritual void which has been been present in our society for a very long time now, recognised by those who have ears to hear, and eyes to see.   If you have anything to add to his analysis, let’s hear it…

    One of the few good things to come out of the pandemic and the march towards a globalist technocratic tyranny has been the return of a some lost sheep to the fold. There are several journalists and prominent commentators who are now openly speaking of their exploration of the Christian faith after years of default secular values.

    Most seem very disappointed that the mainstream versions of Church are fully onboard with the globalist vision. Thankfully, many seem tenacious and will find the robust groups -the remnant if you will – that are still out there.

    I’ve also witnessed a change at freedom demonstrations over the past 18 months. Where there was once only New Age values openly espoused there are now quite often Christian ones. I’ve seen people with the Divine Mercy image on recent marches and have stood in Trafalgar Square where I’d estimate 80% of us prayed the Lord’s Prayer. The priests and bishops are absent, of course, but something significant is happening without them.

      Andrew Q,

      It’s certainly good news that some people are turning back to explore Christianity as a result of their suspicions and observations around the virus, but I’m wondering if you missed our various threads on the Divine Mercy devotion – here’s a recent one, just for your information, not to reignite that debate.

      Your final sentence is telling – and I hope it tells the bishops and priests reading this that they will face a truly terrible judgment unless they put that right, without delay.

        I don’t practice the Divine Mercy devotion – I’m a Sacred Heart chap – but at least the banner showed that those folks weren’t quite Gaia worshippers. The Divine Mercy practice is problematic but the image on the banner is at least identifiably Christian to the general public. In the absence of any official Church presence it is at least something.

        Although I was never a fan of his politics or modernist heology at least in the old days you’d have identifiable Catholic figures like Mgr Bruce Kent at freedom rallies. Any glimpse of Christian faith or faith leaders on the streets or in the public square is to be welcomed.

        Andrew Q,

        Your first point is well made but as for Bruce Kent – all his presence did was to cause immense scandal when he later abandoned the priesthood. I have met people who were initially drawn to the Church through a particular priest and then totally taken aback and scandalised when an affair of some kind was revealed. Remember, “scandal” essentially means obstacle and in fact, priests at such “social justice” (misnomer) rallies are, in and of themselves, a scandal, an obstacle to Faith. Trying explaining to possible would-be converts that priests and all about saving souls and that working for a better world here below is our job, as lay people – with the added dimension, of course, of bringing people to Christ. The presence of priests at a pro-life rally is an exception, for obvious reasons, but otherwise they are to form the laity – not government policy on nuclear weapons.

        I do concede the Divine Mercy banner, though – game, set and match to you, on that!

        Point taken about the primary rôle of the priest and the poor example I used with Mr Kent.

        I’d suggest that the freedom rallies are part of the prolife movement. Many of us are there because we don’t want coercion or mandating of abortion tainted jabs, we want the freedom to attend mass and receive the life giving sacraments in unlocked churches, we want to be able to gather to provide corporal acts of mercy to those in need, we seek the protection of the elderly and infirm from de facto euthanasia via routine overuse of midazolam/morphine cocktails and DNR orders. Then there are the free speech and liberty of conscience issues that are particularly pertinent to those witnessing for Christ. And that’s only the stuff that’s already happening…

        There’s no need to use the pro-life movement as a reason for freedom rallies – our freedoms come from God and THAT is the only meaningful rationale for resisting the ongoing attack on our liberty. It is because all life comes from God that the pro-life movement exists at all.

        Priests should be leading the fight against the ongoing totalitarian “grab” by (a) refusing to participate in the restrictions, especially in their churches and (b) preaching strongly that Catholics must NOT be like the pagans around them, terrified of illness and death. Ordinary common sense means of looking after our health; since our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit that is required of us. But we should not be obsessively preoccupied about our health and certainly not participating in the current madness. Not masks, not the rest. I can’t see any clergy (in any great numbers, at least) swelling the numbers at such a freedom rally, any time soon. They are totally complicit in this whole scandal, and will one day be called to account for it. We’ve seen pictures of bishops lining up with the unemployed, but very few with pro-lifers and none at all, that I’ve seen, at freedom rallies this past 18 months.

        Bishops and priests are notably silent on the demotion of Christ the King to second (or further down the line) place, after politicians and alleged medical “experts”. In this they are following the shocking example of their boss, Francis the First (and we hope, Last), instead of the example of Christ our Lord, who went out of his way to show his disapproval of lockdowns by touching the shunned lepers who came to Him.

        I’ve just had a text from a friend telling me that a former work colleague tried to book a table at a restaurant in her area – vaccine passport required. My friend’s text ended “You can see where this is going…”

        Yip. And it’s going this way because of the idiots who have gone along with the whole scam, the face masks etc. Turns out that this work colleague is a “yes woman” – she has done everything that has been dictated by those from on high – who are not going to be “on high” in the next world, without sincere repentance and reparation.

        Just keep reminding yourself that your freedom is from God – not from those running the Boris & Nicola Show.

        I do hope you’re right about Francis being “the last” – another pope like him and I don’t think I’d survive.

        That is the key thing which people are forgetting, that our freedom is an inalienable right, which means it is ours, end of discussion, not a gift from the government. It comes from God and people who have no faith don’t realise that – they think the government IS God!

        “Just keep reminding yourself that your freedom is from God, not from those running the Boris & Nicola Show”. LOL!

        It’s just a pity the Pope has forgotten that!

        Andrew Q,

        I agree, it’s good when Christian symbols appear at public rallies for freedom. I wish someone would organise a Fatima presence, and hand out simple leaflet to catch the attention of the majority who won’t have heard of it, Consecration of Russia, etc.

    I’ve just seen this and can’t resist posting it here because if anything shows the truth of what happens when people stop believing in/worshipping God, that they really do lose their minds, this is it. Here’s a Daily Sceptic headline dated yesterday, 30 November…

    And here is one hilarious comment from that blog…

    Yes, you’ll need to take the Covid “poison death shot” before we can give you our euthanising “poison death shot”. Now that’s bureaucracy for you.

    I enjoyed that video conversation – I’d heard of “Unherd” but that’s all, so that was an interesting conversation.

    It’s also encouraging to think that there are people open-minded enough to change their position on the vaccine and to look again at the Christian faith. We should pray for Paul Kingsnorth.

    Unherd is a great platform to which I subscribed over a year ago. The above interview is very thought provoking and the rooster sounds like he needs medicine! If one of mine sounded like that I’d be giving him antibiotics!

    That said, I never thought of society’s reactions to the virus in such very clear terms. There is definitely a rift between the 2 groups he speaks about and this will only be healed by God entering the gap. As said above, people are beinning to see a spiritual dimension to all this and I personally know several.

      You have roosters – plural? I never really thought about your username before but I take it you live on a Scottish farm?

        Yes Laura, I do. We call them cockerels. I only ever heard the term “rooster” in the USA. We also have hens, ducks, geese and soon to have turkey chicks, sheep, Highland cattle, Highland ponies and a Shetland pony stud. We grow our own vegetables and have a large polytunnel.

        That’s really interesting – you must enjoy the outdoor life! I’m a city girl, I’m afraid!

        I agree with you that Unherd is a very good platform. I’ve just been watching this one, which is an interview with a woman who had been in the quarantine camp.

        That is an interesting chat, but why didn’t that woman explain to the officials that she has an exemption from the mask? I find that puzzling.

      RCA Victor,

      That’s brilliant news. You’d think it would be reported by the msm though, so how can we be sure that the Burning Platform has the facts right?

      RCA Victor,

      That is BRILLIANT news. I don’t often cheer for violence and death threats…

      Of course I’m joking… 😀

    Dr Mike Yeadon being interviewed and gives a warning that “Your Government is lying to you in a way that could lead to your death”.

    He does talk about the gene based vaccine and its effects. And it is a plausible way of reducing the world’s population while maintaining biodiversity. And that the elite will not be taking the vaccine.

    Here’s the Canadian Pastor who has been fighting the tyranny over there – I haven’t had time to watch the embedded video or read this but looks very interesting indeed.

    Omicron is the virus of the mind in psychological warfare, that is biological terrorism. Steve Adams who talks about this “current” supposed threat to humanity, if you like playing anagrams, well, if you move the letters of Omicron, you should come up with the word “moronic”.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson sits down with Sky News Australia’s Sharri Markson to discuss What Really Happened in Wuhan, the culmination of Ms Markson’s investigation into the origins of Covid-19 (in her book).

    She has gone to the beginning to where it all began in Wuhan. Seems that the leak was accidental, but the cover up was deliberate. China knew that this virus was dangerous in any case.

    China lodged a patent for a Covid-19 vaccine in late February 2020. Can anyone recall of hearing that they had lodged a patent around that time or a little later? For the life of me I cannot remember.

    It is interesting to listen to Doctor Robert Malone talking about the mass hypnosis of people on a global scale, and it is terrifying how easy it seems to have happened. And most people seem to be stuck in that mindset and unable to think logically for themselves. But there are those who can see through what is happening and fight back in whatever way they can.
