Crusader Will: The Big One? That’s about the size of it!

A quake survivor gets quite apocalyptic in his reactions.
A real apocalypse may come as something of an anti-climax.
Whatever way the era’s set to end,
a further quake could easily preempt all that.
You develop a constant sense of overhang;
The literal is as much on the cards as the metaphoric.
It might be a mercy, to judge by the prophecies.
As long as it’s quick.  You don’t want to be trapped
underneath all that rubble, awaiting the inevitable.
Besides, I mightn’t survive the Tribulation
with my soul intact. Better to take me
in the state of grace, not as a total test-failure.
 
To lose a great deal of your interest
because of seismic shifts is one thing;
to lose your immortal soul
because of the reign of the Beast, 
is quite another.
 
The new earth may be a real draw-card,
but you might have to settle for the old heaven instead,
and predecease the Last Day –
only resurrection seems to require prior crucifixion.
Oh well. you might get that with the Church,
the way it’s all shaping up.

Apologies to Red Sails in the Sunset

The poem below (by our favourite poet), was inspired by recent events. (See links at the end of the post. )

Apologies to RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET

Red hats in our sight-lines

World-wide being tracked

To give us the right signs

Of how rogues interact.

 

They’ve been plotting for ages

How to bring down the Church,

So we’ll fight back in stages

Of thorough research.

 

These things bring such sorrow,

No matter the course of the war.

We’ll beg, steal or borrow

Till the mystery’s no more.

 

Red hats in the spotlight

Might prise blinkers off.

Our blind faith we’ve got right.

Now to empty the trough.

Crusader Will

 

This poem was inspired after reading about a new initiative Wealthy Catholics to target Cardinals with ‘Red Hat Report’. Read about it here: https://cruxnow.com/church-in-the-usa/2018/10/01/wealthy-catholics-to-target-cardinals-with-red-hat-report/

Crusader Will (poem): It’s a wrap

 IT’S A WRAP

Or,

The Disillusionment Illusion May be an Illusion Too

 

Where’s the true among the false?

Who is game for another waltz?

Maybe our dancing days are done.

Who is poised to jump the gun?

 

 

 

The human race is winding down.

The time has come to act the clown.

For someone sure is fooling us.

The universe has missed the bus.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

 

 

Yes. But for that remake climax planned,

We’d all get sucked in.Shifty stuff, sand.

Doom is in no mood for compromise.

 The real thing better pack a surprise.

A Poem by Crusader Will: Heart Stop at Fatima

AM+DG

HEART-STOP AT FATIMA

Many of us have done our bit for the Lord –

Done the Six First Saturdays,

Kept praying the Rosary,  kept up the blogs.

But what about all those members of the hierarchy

That have passed on and never obeyed

The clear directives of the Mother of God

About consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart?

Are they paying a high price

For not leading where we long to follow?

The price humanity has paid on earth

Is bad enough.  What of eternity?

The Russian Revolution has still to run its full course.

LIVING ON THE FAULT LINE (Crusader Will Reflects En Passant)

AM+DG

LIVING ON THE FAULT LINE

    (Crusader Will Reflects En Passant)

What we’ve known for years will happen,

Happens. We take note, take stock,
Take some sort of action; survive to tell the tale.
The wagons of apocalypse trundle on down the track.
We try to keep our train of thought on the level
As we rail against the movers and shakers:
Not get too upset, not go right off the line.
 
It’s early days still. I live in a country
That’s sinking deeper and deeper into the mire,
But most of God’s people haven’t noticed a thing.
It’s only a Remnant who prays for the rest
That don’t even know the power of prayer.
 
The wake-up call goes out. I once woke up
To the whole house juddering around my bed.
It’s an object lesson. It’s then you make your move,
Or sit on the edge of the mattress, ride it out,
And wish you’d been better prepared.

The Great Apostasy Game; Memories of Ireland

AMDG

See: Mary’s heart pierced by a newer sword

Than when Magi-alerted Herod’s soldiers came

To kill the arch-rival King their king abhorred.

Now, not all fugitives escape from shame

At not receiving a full martyr’s reward.

But all innocents suffer just the same..

See: Mary’s heart pierced by a newer sword.

Flocks Irish shepherds tossed to the wolves acclaim

Abortion-sanctioning moves now forever stored

In a swelling hall of collective ill-fame,

Readied by abuse cases too long ignored.

For all innocents suffer just the same.

See: Mary’s heart pierced by a newer sword

Dreaded by one maybe chosen in the name

Of past far-flung champions who with one accord

Preserved the faith with a Skellig-like flame.

(Near where stands a statue by which I’ve been awed).

But all innocents suffer just the same.

See: Mary’s heart pierced by a newer sword

That stabs me too. That statue once “moved”. This I frame

As entitling me to claims “warned of the fraud

That hallmarks these end-times”. Still, against such blame

A Dublin Boy-Jesus blazed Joy-Untoward.

But all innocents suffer just the same.

 

The showdown of showdowns rests with the Lord.

It’s only a remnant that shares in this aim.

See: Mary’s heart pierced by a newer sword.

For all innocents suffer just the same.
