THE POLITICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE


Little Darling of the Left
Brainwashed Teenager at the 2019 U.N. Climate Action Summit


"The 'existential threat' scenario is another left-wing falsehood used to whip up hysteria that will lead to the left's control of the economy and society." _ Dennis Prager

If You Can't Sell Your Hysteria to Adults, Try Kids
by Dennis Prager
(Sept. 24, 2019)

The entire American left -- the mainstream media, the environmentalist movement and Democratic politicians in particular -- are celebrating the involvement of teenagers and even younger children in protesting the world's "inaction" with regard to global warming.

And not just the American left, of course. The left throughout the world is celebrating. A 16-year-old Swedish girl whose contempt for adults is breathtaking is an international hero. Congressional Democrats invited her to testify in Congress, and the United Nations has likewise invited her.

The mayor and city council of New York City further politicized their city's public schools by allowing students to skip school to actively participate in a global warming protest.

The message of young climate change activists is: "You adults aren't doing your job. As a result, we have no future." As a sympathetic reporter -- are there any non-sympathetic reporters? -- for the Los Angeles Times put it, "(T)eens are still waiting for a sign that their elders get it."

The Times' coverage is typical. It reported: "Underneath the activism lies a simple truth: Young people are incredibly scared about climate change. They see it as a profound injustice and an existential threat to their generation and those that will follow." ...

"They do worry, and they worry kind of a lot," said Maria Ojala, an environmental psychologist at Orebro University in Sweden. ...

"Arielle Martinez Cohen" -- an 18-year-old Los Angeles activist with the youth climate group Zero Hour -- "remembers reading a report from an Australian think tank that warned the human species could face extinction by 2050 if society doesn't get its act together."

"I almost imagine, like, an apocalypse-type thing happening," Arielle said.

Many young people say they can't fathom bringing kids of their own into the world. ...

"It's not ethical. It's literally a burning house," Lana said. "That's something that's not realistic," agreed her twin sister, Yena.

And how can they even think about college or contemplate their careers when faced with so much uncertainty?

"It's something I feel every single day," Yena said. "I work really hard at school and I do all these things, and I'm like, 'What am I working for? Do I have a future?'"

It is critical to remember that hysterias -- such as Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, "endemic and systemic racism in America," the heterosexual AIDS "crisis" in America and the "rape culture" on American college campuses -- are to the left what oxygen is to biological life. No oxygen, no life; no hysteria, no left.

Apparently, however, the left-wing hysteria about global warming leading to the virtual extinction of life on Earth has not moved enough adults. Many adults who do not deny that the Earth is getting warmer -- such as Danish writer and environmentalist thinker Bjorn Lomborg -- do deny that the threat is "existential" and do believe that the left's solutions, such as the Green New Deal, will damage the world far more than will carbon emissions. Proof that the left is hysterical is its unwillingness to promote nuclear power -- a completely clean, non-fossil fuel-based source of power. It provides France with 70 percent of its energy. Anyone who really believes life on Earth is endangered would grasp at the nuclear power lifeboat. That they do not proves what many of us have believed from the beginning: The "existential threat" scenario is another left-wing falsehood used to whip up hysteria that will lead to the left's control of the economy and society.

And that takes us back to the children: If you can't sell your hysteria to adults, try kids. And that is what the left has done. After all, no one is as malleable or as easily indoctrinated as children.

Consider this: If the left didn't tell them the world is going to end, they wouldn't worry about it. They'd be enjoying their young lives, maybe even learning to appreciate that they live in the freest country at the most prosperous time in human history. Instead, thanks to leftists (who are children in adult bodies), they live in their grip of "existential eco-anxiety."

This is but one more way in which the left abuses children (along with telling them they are neither boys nor girls but whatever they later choose to be; teaching them contempt for their country; and depriving them of the greatest source of morality, meaning, community and happiness -- any of the Judeo-Christian religions).

It's depressing, and it's frightening.

The scariest movies are those featuring brainwashed children. This horror show is happening in real life.

FLAME OF LOVE: The Coming Effect of Grace

From an article posted by Mark Mallett
on December 21, 2017



In the remarkable approved revelations to Elizabeth Kindelmann, a Hungarian woman who was widowed at the age of thirty-two with six children, Our Lord reveals an aspect of the “Triumph of the Immaculate Heart” that is coming.

"The Lord Jesus had a really deep conversation with me. He asked me to urgently take the messages to the bishop. (It was March 27, 1963, and I did that.) He spoke to me at length about the time of grace and the Spirit of Love quite comparable to the first Pentecost, flooding the earth with its power. That will be the great miracle drawing the attention of all humanity. All that is the effusion of the effect of grace of the Blessed Virgin’s Flame of Love. The earth has been covered in darkness because of the lack of faith in the soul of humanity and therefore will experience a great jolt. Following that, people will believe. This jolt, by the power of faith, will create a new world. Through the Flame of Love of the Blessed Virgin, faith will take root in souls, and the face of the earth will be renewed, because 'nothing like it has happened ever since the Word became Flesh.' The renewal of the earth, although flooded with sufferings, will come about by the power of intercession of the Blessed Virgin." __ The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: The Spiritual Diary (2898-2899).

[Pope Francis gave his Apostolic Blessing upon the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Movement on June 19, 2013.]

Several times throughout her diary, the Blessed Virgin or Jesus speak of the “Flame of love” and the “effect of grace” that will eventually change the course of humanity. The Flame is understood as Jesus Christ himself. But what is the “effect of grace”?

If we think of the coming of Jesus like the rising of the sun at dawn, then the “effect of grace” is like the first ray of dawn or the subtle haze that crests the horizon. And with that first light there comes a sense of hope and anticipation of the triumph over the darkness of night.

… the best example of the “effect of grace” at work (is) when Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-45): When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb… at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.”

Neither Elizabeth nor the unborn infant, John the Baptist, saw Jesus. But Mary, “full of grace”, whose womb was the tabernacle of God, became a vessel of her Son’s presence. Through her, Elizabeth and John experienced the “effect of grace”. It is this kind of “effect” that is coming upon humanity, through Mary’s children primarily, that will bind Satan’s power. But not until the world passes through a Great Storm.

"And I, the beautiful ray of dawn, I will blind Satan. I will free this world darkened by hatred and contaminated by the sulfurous and steaming lava of Satan. The air which gave life to souls has become suffocating and deadly. No dying soul should be damned. My Flame of Love is already lighting up. You know, my little one, the elect will have to fight against the Prince of Darkness. It will be a terrible storm. Rather, it will be a hurricane which will want to destroy the faith and confidence of even the elect. In this terrible turmoil currently brewing up, you will see the brightness of my Flame of Love illuminating Heaven and earth by the effusion of its effect of grace I am passing on to souls in this dark night." __ Our Lady to Elizabeth, The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: The Spiritual Diary (2994-2997).

But now is a time of waiting, fasting and prayer. It is the time of the “Upper Room” when, gathered with Our Lady, we await this “new Pentecost” that the popes have been praying for this past century...

It is the hour when we must shake ourselves from our indifference and disbelief, and prepare for what has been foretold for centuries.

"The great storm is coming and it will carry away indifferent souls who are consumed by laziness. The great danger will erupt when I take away my hand of protection. Warn everyone, especially the priests, so they are shaken out of their indifference." __ Jesus to Elizabeth, The Flame of Love (page 77), Imprimatur by Archbishop Charles Chaput

It is the hour to enter the Ark of Our Lady’s heart: "My Mother is Noah’s Ark…" __ The Flame of Love (page 109), Imprimatur Archbishop Charles Chaput

"The grace from the Flame of Love of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart will be to your generation what Noah’s Ark was to his generation." __ Our Lord to Elizabeth Kindelmann, The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: The Spiritual Diary (page 294).

As the papal theologian for Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II, confirmed: "Yes, a miracle was promised at Fatima, the greatest miracle in the history of the world, second only to the Resurrection. And that miracle will be an era of peace which has never really been granted before to the world." __ Cardinal Mario Luigi Ciappi (October 9, 1994), The Apostolate’s Family Catechism (page 35).

"We humbly implore the Holy Ghost, the Paraclete, that He may 'graciously grant to the Church the gifts of unity and peace,' and may renew the face of the earth by a fresh outpouring of His charity for the salvation of all." __ Pope Benedict XV, Pacem Dei Munus Pulcherrimum (May 23, 1920).

Yes, Come Holy Spirit, come quickly! Come Lord Jesus, You who are the Flame of Love, and dispel the cold and darkness of this night with your loving presence and the “effect of grace” radiating from Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart...
(End)

MEDJUGORJE PILGRIMAGE 2018

Medjugorje Pilgrimage (May 29 - June 7, 2018)


The Church of St. James the Apostle is the symbol and heart of the Parish of Medjugorje.

The Statue of Our Lady at the top of Apparition Hill is where Our Lady first appeared to six children in 1981. Pilgrims climb the steep, rocky path that leads to the apparition site.

The Blue Cross at the foot of Apparition Hill is where Our Lady appears to the visionary Mirjana on the 2nd of each month. Pilgrims are invited to be present at the apparition.

Message of Our Lady of Medjugorje, Queen of Peace, through the visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo. (June 2, 2018)

"Dear children, I am calling you to accept my words which I am speaking to you as a mother, with a simplicity of heart, so that you may set out on the way of complete light and purity, of the singular love of my Son, man and God.
A joy -- a light indescribable in human words -- will penetrate your soul and the peace and love of my Son will take hold of you. I desire this for all of my children.
Therefore, you, apostles of my love, you who know how to love and forgive, you who do not judge, you whom I encourage, you be an example to all those who are not going on the way of light and love or who have diverted from it.
By your life show them the truth. Show them love because love overcomes all difficulties, and all of my children thirst for love.
Your unity in love is a gift to my Son and me. But, my children, remember that to love also means to desire the good for your neighbor and to desire conversion of your neighbor's soul.
As I am looking at you gathered around me, my heart is sad, because I see so little brotherly love, merciful love.
My children, the Eucharist -- my Son alive among you -- His words will help you comprehend, because His word is life, His word makes the soul breathe, His word brings about cognition of love.
Dear children, anew, I am imploring you as a mother who desires the good for her children: love your shepherds, pray for them.
Thank you."

The Cross at the top of Cross Mountain is embedded with relics of the True Cross. Climbing the mountain, pilgrims partake in the Stations of the Cross.

THE UPPER ROOM IN JERUSALEM

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky a noise
like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on
each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
(Acts 2:1-4)


The place where Jesus had his Last Supper,
and washed the feet of the disciples.
The place where Jesus instituted the priesthood,
and instituted the Eucharist.
The place where the Holy Spirit
came upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost.

"Do not grow weary of turning to Heaven: the world stands in need of prayer. It needs men and women who feel the attraction of Heaven in their life, who make praise to the Lord a new way of life. And may you be joyful Christians! I entrust you all to Mary Most Holy, present in the Upper Room at the event of Pentecost. Persevere with her in prayer, walk guided by the light of the living Holy Spirit, proclaiming the Good News of Christ." _ Address of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to Charismatic Catholics, May 26, 2012
