“I feel that we may all find a message of encouragement in the lines which, in my closing words, I would like to say to you:
I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied, “Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way.”
Minnie Haskins, Poetess
May that Almighty Hand guide and uphold us all.
The King’s broadcast was specifically Christian in content. He identified Christmas as “above all, the festival of peace”.
The Christian West was then at terrible war and yet, The King said:
“I believe from my heart that the cause which binds together my peoples and our gallant and faithful Allies is the cause of Christian civilisation.”
So it is that the war and the sacrifice was joined and endured in the righteous cause of saving Christian civilization.
As I watch with my own, now fast deepening sadness, the profound, palpable, unhappiness and disquietude of the peoples of the West in our time, it is manifest to me that sadness has, at its root cause, a turning away from that very Christian civilization that has made the West the cradle of all those things that make mankind good, noble and worth any sacrifice to preserve and secure.
A society that turns away from God will not endure and does not deserve noble sacrifice to preserve it.
I am asked often today why it is that the Muhammadans are such a vibrant and determined people today.
I must say that it is precisely because the Muhammadans believe so passionately in their God, that their civilization now thrives, while our own, having turned its face away from our own true God, so listlessly, so dreadfully sadly, corrodes.
We cannot dodge the nagging reality that:
God rejected, leaves man, neglected.
- Man holds to opinions, God holds the facts.
- The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to employ and train the poor man~~directly~~personally.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~ French actor~~Alain Delon

I beg to differ on their vibrancy, at least in terms that are positive, but I agree with the rest of what you wrote. Sadly. Despite that, we carry on.
I meant vibrancy in the sense of intense involvement with their God in their lives. Yes, we must carry on
Thanks for your posts, btw. Came upon your blog by accident one day and now I’m hooked.
Thank you—writing is an great love of mine.
