Holy Week and the Decline of the West

Sent to us by the author.

Antonius Aquinas

At one time, Holy Week – Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday – was recognized and commemorated by the Western world as a solemn period where earthly matters were put aside and focus was directed to history’s most seminal event.  

Most businesses were closed or had reduced hours especially during the Sacred Triduum of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.  Entertainment and leisurely activities were curtailed while schools and universities’ “spring breaks” coincided with Holy Week as mankind contemplated, as best as it could, the momentous events which took place in a small backwater outpost of the mighty, and at the time, unknowing, Roman Empire.

Tragically, for the human race those days are a thing of the discredited past.  Sports are played, most work throughout the week, financial affairs are routinely conducted, while Easter Sunday is not seen as a celebration of the Resurrection, but of egg hunts.  In politics, it can be safely assumed that there will be no let up in the seemingly interminable U.S. presidential campaign during this week which, of all places, is in the most need of spiritual reflection.

The triumph of secular humanism is almost complete.

Such disregard and ingratitude for what took place two millennium ago does not bode well for mankind’s future, especially in those lands and among those peoples which once revered these sacred days.  The ominous eternal consequences of such indifference was warned about by the Divine Savior as recounted in St. Matthew’s Gospel: “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father, who is in heaven.”

While most do not realize it, the grave economic, political, and social problems which the West faces are ultimately the result of the indifference toward God with the neglect of Holy Week as a prime example.  None of the current abominations such as abortion and “gay” marriage could have ever been possible had human societies been dedicated toward Christ.

Such disregard will not go unpunished.  Could the continuing economic malaise and possible financial collapse, the burgeoning police states and the mostly Muslim invasion of what was once Christendom be heavenly retribution for man’s lackadaisical attitude toward his God?

It is amazing that none among the current crop of presidential contenders have recognized this obvious fact.  Their ignorance, and the blindness of those that are currently in power, will mean that none of the issues being debated and discussed will be solved.  The problems that the West faces today cannot be resolved as a matter of the right policy, but are at their core spiritual.  Redress of these issues will not come about through the ballot box or reform.

The forces that seek the West’s destruction must be fought on the spiritual plane.  They have long understood this, which is why they have tried to and largely succeeded in removing religion from society, allowing it only on Sundays – and if trends continue even this will no longer be tolerated.  Those who seek to preserve the fruits of Western civilization must realize that it is a religious contest.

The disastrous consequences of mankind ruling itself is on display for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.  The cultural depravity that abounds in contemporary life is stunning and has gone on so long and has been conducted with such intensity that most are now desensitized to it.  Creating jobs, halting mass immigration, appointing “conservative” judges will do little to overthrow the cultural Marxism that permeates society.

Until the Divine Entity for which Holy Week is centered on is once again placed at the summit of Western life, the chances of resolving its various crisis are nil.

    Yes, mankind has given God the middle finger. Satan rules this world. The devil is in the details, in damned near everything! It is no difficulty whatsoever to find Satanic symbolism or references 24/7.

    “The Walking Dead”, Zombiamania has dominated the scripts coming out of that hellhole called Hollywood. The more blood, guts, goons, aliens, and psychopaths, the more money at the box office. It’s sick. Pornography, that’s a whole different kettle of fish. Sickening, just the same. Yes, the joos have morally bankrupted this society, quite successfully, using vice to weaken the resistance. All a well orchestrated plan, decades in the making, damned near complete.

    I AGREE WITH MILLARD, HOWEVER I COME FROM A LONG LINE OF PEOPLE THAT WERE CONTENT ONLY TO BE CALLED “CHRISTIAN”.THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT FOR CHRISTIANS TO OBSERVE “HOLY WEEK”, BUT THIS IS AS CLOSE AS I COULD GET;Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
    SO THIS CATHOLIC CAN JUDGE TIL HE IS PURPLE IN THE FACE WHILE FORGETTING THAT THE PAPACY, A DESTROYER OF FREEDOM, IS WHY MY PEOPLE FLED EUROPE 250 SOME ODD YEARS AGO. CATHOLOCISM IS EVIL.ITS A BUSINESS. ANY CHURCH THAT HAS MADE A “BUSINESS” OUT OF CHRISTIANITY IS DOOMED TO THE LAKE OF FIRE. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF YOU “PREACH THE GOSPEL” THAT YOU WORK WITH YOUR OWN HANDS..NOT BEING A BURDEN TO OTHERS.Jas 5:1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
    Jas 5:2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
    Jas 5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
    Jas 5:4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

    jew retribution… for non-jew man’s lackadaisical attitude toward them, the Zionists & communists.

    Talmudic scum!

      A JEW ON FACE BOOK SAID THE OTHER DAY THAT IT WAS THIER JOB TO REMOVE IDOLITRY FROM THE EARTH. TO PROVE THERE IS NO GOD…… I GUESS SO THEY THEN CAN MOVE IN AND FILL THE SPOT, AS WITH THE “TRINITY DOCTRINE” OF THE POPPY CHURCH

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        To understand the jew mentality, one needs to read what their rabbis have said in the past. This is an excerpt from “Judaism’s Strange gods” by Michael Hoffman, p. 114…

        “From BT Bava Metzia 59B we learn halachic disputes must be resolved by majority vote of the Rabbis. God could not contradict His own supposed decision to allow Torah questions to be decided by majority vote. Gemara relates the tale that generations later, Rabbi Natan met the (Old Testament) prophet Elijah. Rabbi Natan asked Elijah about the exchange between Rabbi Eliezer and Rabbi Yehoshua. He said to him: ‘What did the Holy One, blessed be He, do at that time when Rabbi Yehoshua refused to heed the heavenly voice? In reply, Elijah said to Rabbi Natan: ‘God smiled and said: ‘My sons have defeated Me, My sons have defeated Me!”

        And this, from p. 115…

        “In a review of the book “The Talmud and the Internet” by Jonathan Rosen, Lord Sacks, who is Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth of Britain, writes: “Rosen loves, as do I, that extraordinary moment in the Talmud in which God is outvoted on a point of Jewish law and celebrates the fact that His children have defeated Him. In the world of the rabbis, not only do men study the word of God; God studies the words of men.”

        The epitome of arrogance & pride (Satan’s downfall).

        These amoebas claim to be MORE intelligent than He who created them.

          I am amazed–the Talmud is WORSE than I thought!

          • Martist says:

            Truly a notable book of filth to be admired and practiced by the worst.

            goldstein, stalin and lavey ALL give it 5 stars!

            I would list soooo many more but only so many hours in a day.

            It’s not blind hatred but hatred hrough crystal clear eyes that sees these things for what they are and what they’re about.

            They are a textbook definition of “sociopath” and have managed to acquire the power necessary to inflict their brand of control over many.

            Not that you don’t know, though. Not preaching to the choir! 🙂
