A Postcard from the Edge of Fergusamnestebola

I just wanted to send out a post before the stage-managed fear fest here in St. Louis goes live this weekend.  We hear the Emperor's Amnesty plans tonight, and are told to panic there.  Then, the long-simmer of Ferguson is rumored to go to boiling-point sometime over the weekend, and we're told to panic there.  Now, of course-- of course!-- the Post-Dispatch tells us a possible ebola case is in the area.  And-- if you know anything about St. Louis-- of course the case is in Jefferson County.  Makes perfect sense.  Oh, yeah, PANIC!!

With all that in mind, I ask you for your prayers for our fair city, and for our country.  Most of all, that we receive God's mercy and protection from the very real forces of evil in our battles with the Principalities and Powers of this present darkness.

Stay safe, stay sane, and stay faithful.  God bless.

Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium. Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde. Ámen

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Do you think it's ok if I go to Confession tonight to try to be in the state of grace or would that be just too sinful?

Yes, trust in Gods' mercy, but carry your firearm as well. Who knew when I was eating at the Ferguson Cracker Barrel a while ago that I was in a spot history will be made.

The Ferguson thing may be just another local riot, or it may be the pretext for lotsa bad stuff everywhere, from both sides.

All we need now is SNOWPOCALYPSE to return and all control will be lost.
