How the Devil Won the War

The Bear writes this from the new, openly established kingdom of the Prince of the World. Not so long ago, we were still at war. Sure most of our territory was occupied, collaborators were everywhere, and it seemed there was a new beachhead or drop zone every month.

But the Bear has realized the war is over. Over at least as far as human efforts are concerned. There are rumors of fleet gathering for a counter-invasion, but few details are available.

There can be no mistake we've been conquered. We've seen the newsreel footage of demonic legions marching through Paris, New York, Rome, and other capitals. The old national ensigns have been hauled down, and the red-and-black flag of the Prince of the World flies everywhere.

The Bear has obtained - never mind how - a slightly singed document containing a Top Secret plan of the Devil. They called it "The Manhattan Project."

The Devil had the schematics for human beings. He knew we were like fish who could survive only in the sea of sacramental marriage. Sacramental marriage was he key to everything. Fidelity, family, culture, religion - in short, if he could destroy sacramental marriage, he could destroy everything. That's why they devoted most of their efforts into the Manhattan Project. Honestly, they took it more seriously and worked harder on this essential strategic feature than did our generals and officers.

His agents were placed in every important position, secular and religious, at all levels. Marriage was too hard, the Devil honestly believed. His agents sold something "realistic," suited for weak creatures like us. At some point, sacramental marriage had been entirely replaced by the Devil's easier version. The Bear can't say exactly when this happened. Just that it did, and that is why we are singing Hell's anthem now.

The Manhattan Project: not with a bang, or even a whimper, but with a moan of pleasure from damp sheets and a sigh of satisfaction. The Bear has heard demons call this "the greatest day since plucky old mother Eve declared her independence from the Man in the Sky." A few have taunted the Bear, and he has no response. They planned well, fought hard, and beat us fair and square. Well, with the help of a lot of collaborators and traitors, if that's fair.

Fortunately, the Bear supposes, the new regime is not oppressive. In fact, just the opposite. They don't care what we do as long as we're in Hell at the end of the day.

  2. And as we think about Pope Francis role in all of this.

    Matthew 7:15
    Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

    Matthew 22:14
    For many are called, but few are chosen."

    Matthew 24:5
    For many will come in My name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.

    Matthew 24:11
    and many false prophets will arise and mislead many.

    Matthew 24:22
    If those days had not been cut short, nobody would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened.

  3. Well then, dear Bear, we must do all we can to torture them with heaven before day's end!

  4. It helps me, at least, to read about the Jews in the Old Testament. When they turned away from God they were not punished a little bit - they were crushed, and carried away from their land - they were held captive as slaves for generation after generation. The scary thing is that while in this desperate captivity they actually turned away from God more and more. Many of them made themselves right at home and took up the evil practices of their captors.

    What do we expect now? That God will only make things a tad uncomfortable for us? Nay, He will see to it that we are crushed, carried away, and for good measure He will allow many of us to consort with the enemy - traitors to Him, and to the Faithful.

    It strikes me more and more that most of us are just not listening. Ask Jonah, ask Job, ask those in the Babylonian captivity.

    It will BE that we will be crushed. We are being crushed now. Those of us who suffer but remain faithful will be rewarded. Those who 'make peace with the world' will damn themselves to Hell.

    The battle is lost, but not the war. The Immaculate One will conquer in the end.

  5. "Do not, I beg you, be troubled by forces already dissolved. You have mistaken the hour of the night. It is already morning." (Hilaire Belloc)

    Well, admitting our human defeat and helplessness before God is a good start. It's a tough lesson to be taught. But, the Israilites had to learn it the hard way too.

  6. Satan loses - Revelation 20:

    7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be loosed from his prison 8 and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, that is, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. 9 And they marched up over the broad earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city; but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, 10 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
