Retooling and realigning.

I need to take a break from writing for a few weeks to deal with some personal issues, so I’ve put subscriptions on “pause” until mid-July.
Paying subscribers will not be billed during the pause.
Thank you to all readers for your support and encouragement (reading, sharing, commenting and financial) for my work through Bailiwick.
And thank you for your patience until I can get back to it, hopefully by mid-July.
I haven’t been writing and posting as much or as quickly as I would like, because of some family activities that require attention, and because I’m reading and thinking a lot about Roman Catholic Church history and the divorce of State from Church, carried out from about 1700 and even more intensely since 1969 under the banner of false “liberty” and a phalanx of related errors and false ideologies.
Such that the State governments of former-Christendom are now unmoored, decoupled, from God and the social reign of Christ the King.
State murder of people is non-crime, under anti-law because the State no longer recognizes human beings as having immortal souls struggling toward union with God, and State rulers no longer perceive themselves as headed toward post-death judgment of their worldly acts and omissions to foster, or obstruct, their subjects’ personal paths to eternal salvation.
Humanity is undergoing a resulting chastisement.
Like the chastisement God allowed Satan to inflict on Job, but on the whole world.
I’ve been thinking about how the collapse of federal and international legal, judicial, governmental systems fits with the global controlled demolition of Catholicism.
And how both things — deliberate ruination of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church on earth, and collapse of the States of Christendom (monarchies and other forms) — present an invitation for the world’s people to strengthen our faith in God, for those who are already baptized, or move as quickly as possible to the starting line, for those who are not yet baptized.
It’s an invitation to imitate the unshakeable faith Job demonstrated, prefiguring Christ’s Passion on the Cross.
It’s an invitation being offered to everyone alive right now.
I was away from the Catholic faith for more than 30 years, and have only just started to climb the learning curve on these things. Lots of work lies ahead.
