Besides obsessing over things best left in the capable hands of God, I’ve become a Youtube geek! Honestly, I have spent a lot of time taking things in, instead of putting things out there myself. It’s time to get back to work!
So I’d like to share what I’ve been, reading, watching and listening to:
I’ve just finished Infiltration by Dr. Taylor Marshall. It kind of puts the puzzle pieces together for those who are wondering what has happened to our beloved Church. I have to say that it is meticulously referenced. As a reader, I really appreciate those citations. The best part to me was the ending, when Taylor gave ( I think) 5 options for how to deal with what has happened and what is still happening. I agree wholeheartedly with him that it is not time to “jump ship.” It is time to stay and to fight!
Along that same line, I am reading Bishop Barron’s Letter to a Suffering Church. I’m about half way through it. It seems sincere and genuine. I’ll let you know what I think when I’m finished.
A priest gave me the book, In Sinu Jesu, to read. It is about a Benedictine monk whom God allegedly began speaking to in 2007 during his time in Eucharistic adoration. These are inner locutions that he has written down that speak of the renewal of the Catholic priesthood. I’m reading the book as a prayer aid – one or two entries at a time. It does give me great hope for the future Church! Hope is good, and it is necessary!
Confessions time! I told you I’ve become a Youtube junkie. My husband and I love to watch the latest posts by IPOT (In Pursuit of Truth), And We Know (Q Anon/anti main stream media related news) and dnajlion7 (Daniel Lee) from “Beautiful Juneau Alaska.” Daniel is a Messianic Jew (I think). Anyway, his whole platform is doing investigative journalism to aid in bringing down pedophiles and child sex traffickers. This is near and dear to my heart! Go Daniel!
I also love watching “TNT” – the Dr. Taylor Marshall and Tim Gordon Show (“Glad Trads”) as well as survival and homesteading videos. I hope to live out in the country someday – away from the ever growing traffic in our highly populated (and still growing) area. I crave quiet, alone time and especially love spending that time out in nature, admiring Almighty God’s handiwork.
Well, my son is taking a music appreciation course, so I’m ever so glad to have some Beethoven and Bach back in the house! When I’m cleaning or doing paperwork, I love to listen to uplifting Christian music. Two current releases really speak to me. I love to sing them like a anthem when no one is around to hear! They are Symphony by Switch and Rescue by Lauren Daigle. (As a side note, I think that Symphony is a great stand alone song and did not need the rap solo, but I get who they are trying to appeal to.) When I’m in a more reverent or prayerful mood, I LOVE Kitty Cleveland – particularly her Sacred Arias and Sublime Chant.
Sometimes, I feel I am imprudent in sharing too much of myself with others. I’m almost an “open book.” I thought at least here, it may do some good??
I’ve turned off comments on my wordpress site, because I simply do not have the time to read and respond properly to them all. I’d love it if my Facebook friends would share something edifying that they are watching, listening to or reading in the comments. (No Big Brother or Kardashians, o.k:)
