To all the truck stops across America, to the Walmarts, Sams Clubs, all those stores with huge parking lots,
You keep the Truckers fed, give them fuel for their trucks, give them a place to get a hot shower free with fuel, to the stores, you give us a place to sleep and park the trucks when our hours say to stop, your parking lots are big enough for all sorts of truckers; those who haul food, medicine, toilet paper, paper towels, farm equipment to make the food.
Today, I find another post from another trucker, shared by someone regarding Sams Club calling the cops on a trucker for using the parking lot when their 10 hour run is over during these crazy times.
To you giant shopping centers, if it was not for truckers, your doors would be closed, no one would be able to get food or essential items, because the truckers are being denied places to stop to follow the law of the log book and laws passed during these times that a trucker can only work 10 hour shifts and then must stop for the rest of the day.
I’ve lived this life for most of my youth and teenage years, when rules allowed me to go with my dad on long haul trips across America, it is fun to go and see America, but wow, the long hours down the road, all the fast food, quick grab sandwiches from truck stops, the locations on parking for the night, what an experience.
Then, if you are lucky and blessed on a trip when you don’t have to rush back on a short schedule, you can see the sights, go on ferry trips, actually go to a place, sit down and relax and have a true meal. That is the best part of all, when you are on the road a lot, those little comforts.
Now in this crazy world we live in, where the Truck Driver is an essential worker, it is time to treat these men and women as Kings and Queens of the road as they are, let them use the big parking lots, transform it into a mobile truck stop, good food, place to relax, showers, whatever they might need.
It is time they are finally respected for what they do and how important they are to this country.
Some quotes stuck out to me and how my relativesin Europe are very globalist mindset and not faithful to the Catholic Faith or restoring Europe to how it was where the Faith was strong.
“All these paths lead to Trad Inc., which also takes the same political stance of not opposing, but only lamenting, the reign of Bergoglio. It is well know that the traditional catholic movement, whatever they stand for, works closely with European nobility, and are supporters of the House of Hapsburg. They recently held a meeting, moreover, in Munich, at which select leaders of the movement were invited to attend, including Archbishop Viganò, who according to many sources moves in Opus Dei circles.”
“CEDI was headed by Otto von Hapsburg. Archduke Otto grew up in Spain, after the fall of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and resisted the annexation of Austria by Hitler. He fled to the USA during the war, however, when he could easily have returned to Spain. During this time he was a stateless person, but he subsequently obtained a passport from the Principality of Monaco and the Knights of Malta. It is during his time in the USA that he would have been likely approached by the CIA to play a leading role in post war Europe. In fact, after the war he returned to Europe to begin a political career. As his Wikipedia article relates:
Otto von Habsburg was Vice President (1957–1973) and President (1973–2004) of the International Paneuropean Union, and served as a Member of the European Parliament for the Christian Social Union of Bavaria (CSU) from 1979 to 1999. As a newly elected Member of the European Parliament in 1979, Otto had an empty chair set up for the countries on the other side of the Iron Curtain in the European Parliament, and took a strong interest in the countries behind the Iron Curtain. Otto von Habsburg played a notable role in the revolutions of 1989, as a co-initiator of the Pan-European Picnic. Later he was a strong supporter of the EU membership of central and eastern European countries.A noted intellectual, he published several books on historical and political affairs. Otto has been described as one of the “architects of the European idea and of European integration” together with Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, and Alcide De Gasperi.
What is import to note, first of all, is his role in the revolutions of 1989 and his interest in the countries of Eastern Europe. It would be sensible, therefore, to conceive that he had a role in helping Poland oust its Communist government. As I reported in my previous article, the financing for the Solidarity Movement in Poland, came through the Vatican Bank which was laundering money for the CIA. As head of the CEDI, which was a stay-behind organization overseen by the CIA, Archduke Otto is a prime suspect for suggesting to Pope John Paul II to collaborate with the CIA.”
It was good they fought against the Soviet Union and the Nazis, but to continue to side against the enemies of Christ goes against what ourancestorswere for, they did all they could to defend Christ, the Church and the Faithful, now they team up with enemies of Christ to promote themselves and spread confusion.
They call themselves Traditional Catholic, but are in groups or in the circle of these groups who do not uphold the Traditional and Authentic Catholic Faith, but as it shows in the article, groups of people who are hell bent on destroying the Church and have done a good job as far as God has permitted them to do.
So, my private comment to the author of the piece holds correct, “hmm, I didn’t get a letter, and Thank God for it!” I would rather give up myancestryif I could and save my soul, than lose it and be associated with these enemies of the Church and enemies of our ancestors.
Again, my dear Reverend Fathers, your shoes are big and that cross is heavy, and this virus and the hysteria and panic caused by the media does not help, but look at these men once again, your role models, modern day Patron Saints who offered the Latin Mass and the Sacraments and Spiritual Direction under fire, in POW camps, in the depths of the USS Oklahoma in Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor under siege during the air attack, and Father Capodanno, in the jungle of Vietnam with all the weird diseases, creepy crawling things, an intense enemy who fought a guerrilla style warfare, yet Father Capodanno didn’t stop his prayer services, Mass, Sacraments.
Be like the Priests creating confessionals on their front porch, or drive through confessionals, or live streaming their Masses and having a screen made available outside the parish or available on tablets or laptops on a website and then the people in their cars waiting for the Blessed Sacrament.
We are at Passion Sunday, getting close to that holiest time of the year of Holy Week. As President Trump is calling it, a war with an invisible enemy, so you my dear reverend fathers are wartime chaplains, no time to run from the fight and leaving your flock behind.
“Everything began in the month of August that year. Milan was celebrating joyfully the arrival of Don John of Austria, on his way to Flanders, where he had been appointed governor. The city authorities were abuzz with excitement in their desire to bestow the highest honours on the Spanish prince, but Charles, who had been Archbishop of the diocese for six years, was following with concern the news coming from Trento, Verona and Mantua, where the plague had begun claiming victims. The first cases exploded in Milan on August 11th, right at the moment when Don John of Austria arrived. The victor of Lepanto, followed by the governor, Antonio de Guzmán y Zuñiga, departed the city, while Charles, who was in Lodi for the Bishop’s funeral, returned in haste.
Confusion and fear reigned in Milan and the Archbishop dedicated himself completely to assisting the sick and ordering public and private prayers. Dom Prosper Guéranger sums up his infinite charity in this way:
“In the absence of local authorities, he organized the health service, founded or renewed hospitals, sought money and provisions, decreed preventive measures. Most importantly though, he took steps to ensure spiritual help, assistance to the sick and the burial of the dead. Unafraid of being infected, he paid in person, by visiting hospitals, leading penitential processions, being everything to everyone, like a father and true shepherd” (L’anno liturgico – II. Tempo Pasquale e dopo la Pentecoste, Paoline, Alba 1959, pp. 1245-1248).
St. Charles was convinced that the epidemic was “a scourge sent by Heaven” as chastisement for the sins of the people and that recourse to spiritual measures was necessary to fight against it: prayer and penitence. He rebuked the civil authorities for having placed their trust in human measures rather than divine ones.
The magistrates who governed the city continued to oppose public ceremonies, out of fear that the large gathering of people would spread contagion, but Charles “who was guided by the Divine Spirit” – recounts another biographer – convinced them by citing various examples, among which was the one regarding St. Gregory the Great who had halted the plague devastating Rome in 590(Giussano, op. cit. p. 266).
While the pestilence spread, the Archbishop then ordered three general processions to take place in Milan on the 3rd, 5th and 6th of October, “to placate the wrath of God”. On the first day, the Saint, despite it not being the Lenten season, placed ashes on the heads of the thousands gathered, exhorting them to penitence. Once the ceremony was over, the procession went to the Basilica of St. Ambrose. Charles put himself at the head of the people, dressed in a hooded purple robe, barefoot, penitential cord at his neck and large cross in his hand. In the church, he preached on the first lament of the prophet Jeremiah Quomodo sedet sola civitas plena populo, affirming that the sins of the people had provoked the just indignation of God.” Please Continue Reading The Account At
