From Fulton Sheen: Fearing Change And Hating Goodness
#1
I doubt that Biden read this or was aware of things in the content of this article. It probably doesn't matter, since he is one of the worst, if not THE worst Pathological Liars the world has ever seen. There is no truth in him. To get an insight into how true this statement could be, one should read the account of Clarence Thomas, just before his senate hearing for the appointment to the Supreme Court that he had with the Senator Biden. The lies and betrayals are stunning. Thomas details them in his book (a great read BTW) "My Grandfathers' Son".

Anyway, this article is a rather good one for us all to absorb:

From Fulton Sheen: Fearing Change And Hating Goodness

We Can Hate Truth and Fear Goodness

Evil works in us. Love declines. And then we hesitate about changing. St. Thomas says we can hate truth and fear goodness.  We can hate truth because it means a change. For that reason we often resent the truth that is told about ourselves. We rationalize what we have done. We will stay away from a doctor, lest he find cancer.  We do not want to know the truth. We like to hear about social action and political-moral problems, but we’re not too keen on hearing the truth about ourselves. Truth hurts.   

We fear goodness because we like to keep our own standard. We have moved away from the standard of Christ to the standard of the world. We do not ask ourselves, Does this please Christ? , but, Does this please the world?   So I will dress and act in such a way that I will not be separate from the world; I want to be with it. We marry this age, and we become a widow in the next one. We take on its verbiage, its fashions. This is one reason for so much instability in the church today: the sand on which we are walking is shifting.

We’ve given up the rock which is Christ.

One should have an open mind; open enough that things get in, but not so open that everything falls out

The quote from Pope Leo Xlll is especially relevant to Chairman Joe and others of his lying ilk.
“But all will be well, and all will be well, and every kind of thing will be well.” ~Julian of Norwich

"Sometimes you're the windshield.  Sometimes you're the bug."~Mark Knopfler (?)

"No matter who you are somebody thinks you're a heretic. Wear it like a badge of honor........... :LOL:"~Silouan

The fact that I "like" a post is not necessarily an endorsement or approval of its content.
