My St Francis Epiphany

Supposedly St. Francis of Assisi had a terrible illness, and emerged with a vision to end his life of debauchery, and take care of lepers.

Similarly, I have been suffering from the flu from hell for the past week and have had an epiphany to stop global warming. Here is my prayer to Gaia

Gaia, chief bitch of the universe

Help me to end imaginary global warming, imaginary acceleration in ice loss, imaginary acceleration in sea level rise, imaginary increases in heat waves, imaginary increases in extreme weather, imaginary increases in drought, and most importantly – tell big tobacco to pay up or else

And grant me the serenity to accept the fact that our government is a bunch of idiots and crooks.

Amen

– PS tell big oil to pay up too

    Francis’ namesake is no saint…

    Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes not divine, but demonic.”
    -Pope Benedict XVI

    The transition from Benedict to Francis is like going from Jefferson to Obama. There is zero consistency in teachings, one is divine, and the other demonic.

    The original Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi embodies many of the best spiritual insights. The following version was translated from Italian by Elnath Easwaran, the founder of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation near Tomalas, CA.

    “Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace.
    That where there is hatred, I may bring love.
    That where there is injury, pardon.
    That where there is doubt, faith.
    That where there is despair, hope.
    That where there is darkness, light.
    That where there is sadness, joy.”

    “Oh Divine Master,
    Grant that I may, not so much seek to be consoled, as to console.
    To be understood, as to understand.
    To be loved, as to love.”

    “For it is in giving that we receive.
    It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned.
    It is in death of self, that we are born to Eternal Life.”
