Now Playing: Ukraine!

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

William Shakespeare penned these famous words over four centuries ago. If writing today, however, based on the lessons of the last two years, he just might propose a slightly different version:

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely being played.”

Yes, folks, we are being played. That is to say that ordinary men and women are being subject to a relentless campaign of deception as international events, largely scripted by Satan’s minions, are acted out on media platforms worldwide under the direction of a globalist elite.

Consider, for example, the 2020 suitable-for-Broadway production, The COVIDS, starring Anthony Fauci, William Gates, and Klaus Schwab, the staging of which included such props as wet market bats, anal swabs, and mannequins on ventilators. Who among us will ever forget its rousing musical numbers, memorialized on YouTube, featuring singing docs and dancing nurses?

After a highly successful two-year run fueled by a collaborative marketing campaign involving large multi-national corporations, major medical systems, and government bureaucracies, audience interest in The COVIDS (aka irrational fear) is finally beginning to wane, with demand for related merchandise (death shots, PPE) rapidly declining. In recent months, it has become evident that The COVIDS presently enjoys but a mere cult following comprised of masked fanatics who, like the costumed devotees of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, have memorized nearly the entire script and stand ready to reflexively regurgitate key lines whenever challenged.   

In other words, the time is evidently well at hand for the release of a new production to captivate (and distract) the better part of humankind. 

Introducing: Ukraine! Starring the man the west loves to hate, Vladimir Putin, along with Eastern Europe’s favorite funny man, Volodymyr Zelensky.             

Lead Character #1: Our hero, the courageous Ukrainian president in army fatigues standing shoulder to shoulder with his infantrymen, defiantly telling the Russian invaders, “Even if you destroy all our Ukrainian cathedrals and churches, you will not destroy our faith!” [NOTE: No mention of synagogues appears in the script despite the fact that the hero is a Jew.]

Lead Character #2: The villain, a power-hungry Russian leader who, completely unprovoked, decided on a whim to launch a military offensive against his peace-loving neighbor.

Supporting Cast: A beauty queen wielding a fake firearm. A gun-totin’ grandma doing a belly crawl. A newlywed couple in camo.  

Hopefully, you get the point.

Unfortunately, one of the few parts of Ukraine! that is unquestionably real – a feature common to everything produced by the godless elite – is the senseless death and suffering of innocent people as communities, families, and individual lives are destroyed with impunity, while even greater wealth and power is siphoned from the many into the coffers of the few. 

We’ve seen this act before, ladies and gentlemen. Despite the lessons of the past two years, however, many otherwise intelligent people just don’t seem to realize: 

We. Are. Being. Played. 

The same corporate and media conglomerates, and bureaucratic mouthpieces, that repeatedly lied in their effort to promote The COVIDS, while actively cancelling anyone who dared to speak the truth, are now bombarding humanity with the idea that every decent person without exception is compelled in conscience to #StandWithUkraine. This alone is enough to guarantee that their messaging is unalloyed propaganda. 

The “Ukraine good / Russia bad” motif is pure theater; the notion that one must choose either one side or the other, utter rubbish. 

That said, make no mistake, there are but two choices in this matter:

He who is not with me is against me, and he who gathers not with me scatters. (Mt 12:30)

Good motives aside, those who place their energy in the #StandWithUkraine movement are scatterers. Christ the King alone is capable of terminating this most recent diabolical production, preventing it from leading us, the played, to one of its pre-ordained endings, either our enslavement or our slaughter. 

All power in heaven and in earth has been given to me. (Mt 28:18)

If all the world’s a stage, the stage belongs to Him, and the script – the only one with a happy ending – has already been written and published. 

On June 13, 1929, Sr. Lucia of Fatima received a vision of the Most Holy Trinity, during which Our Lady fulfilled the promise that she made on July 13, 1917. In her own words, Sr. Lucia recounted:

Our Lady then said to me: ‘The moment has come for God to ask the Holy Father to make in union with all the bishops of the world, the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart. He promises to save Russia by this means. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.

Get that? Almighty God will save Russia, not the other way around.  

In some circles, the Fatima message is being twisted to suggest that Russia has been chosen as a blessed instrument of peace. I take no pleasure in repeating this yet again, but even Fr. Nicholas Gruner spread this dubious proposition, saying among other things: 

[Our Lord’s call for Russia’s consecration] shows how Russia is not being picked on, but on the contrary how it was chosen for a special blessing and the role Russia will play in being an instrument of peace for the whole world … I think Russia has a special mission that it cannot achieve without being consecrated. The fact is it [the consecration] is a blessing, so it’s not a question about who’s guilty, it’s a question about who’s being more blessed in this case. Russia is being more blessed.

Let’s not be tempted to out-prophesy Our Lady. She said that once Russia is consecrated as requested, the world will enjoy a period of peace. There is only one way for that to happen:

When once men recognize, both in private and in public life, that Christ is King, society will at last receive the great blessings of real liberty, well-ordered discipline, peace and harmony. (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas)

It is the Church that has been given the mission of baptizing the nations; this is how the worldwide recognition of Christ’s Kingship, and peace, will occur. 

Bear well in mind that Russia stood guilty before God even before the consecration was formally requested; the errors of which Our Lady spoke, and the persecution of the Church about which she warned, were already by then, though not at their zenith, a present reality.

The primary stated purpose of the requested consecration, according to Our Lady, was to affect that nation’s “conversion,” that it may submit to the sweet and saving yoke of Christ the King, Sovereign of every nation.

Nowhere do Our Lady’s words suggest that the consecration is ordered toward an anointing, like that of King David, for a special mission.

I will have more to say on this topic in a future post, God willing. 

For now, suffice it to say that those who paint Vladimir Putin as a Christian Crusader running interference against the wiles of the globalists, placing their hope in the ludicrous notion that Russia will somehow save Christendom, are likewise scatterers.

The “good guys” in the Ukraine-Russia conflict are hard to find, so too is the unadulterated truth. The victims of the bad guys, not so much. 

Let us not waste our energy attempting to sift through the rubbish that comes to us from both left and right, laboring instead to do as Our Lady asked when she said of the consecration of Russia:

Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.

[NOTE: Readers may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as much in the past two months, a period during which my eldest sister was battling cancer, the disease that claimed her earthly life on March 4, 2022. If I may ask, please offer a prayer for the repose of the soul of Valerie Verrecchio. A memorial webpage has been created HERE for those who would like to know more about her. She will be sorely missed.]
