Is McCarthy's "The Road" Hopeless or Hopeful?

I vote for hopeful. In the deepest darkness thinkable the father chooses life and goodness for his son despite the stark realness of despair as the he dies and everything around him appears to be dying.

This is the dark night of the soul in our death culture. The love of the father and his choice for good made me think this is the best book I've read since Lord of the Rings.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, I just finished this book today. Was required to read it for class. And I cried ...boy is it depressing and is so hopeless. Does anybody have other views of the book that I might be missing? I'm looking for hope in it...I feel like it's wrong for something to have so little hope in God.

Has anybody else read this book?

Rosary Saved the World in 1960 from Nuclear Annihilation: Pray it to Save the Church from Pope Francis's Errors

-Updated August 19, 2017-

On EWTN's Fatima series, Fr. Apostoli said that the Rosary and Our Lady saved the world from Russia's hydrogen bomb rocket.

He said this historical event may have been represented in the Third Secret of Fatima as Our Lady stopping the angel from covering the world with flames.

Before you read the post in the second section on how the rosary saved the world in 1960 from nuclear annihilation by Work of the Angels also known as Opus Angelorum below, please read the following section on the need to pray for the Pope.


It is sad to say, but in terms of policy and actions, President Trump is by a wide margin more pro-life and pro-family than Pope Francis. 

(Read lifesitenews.com or my website for the evidence.)


There is a just reason why so many faithful Catholics are angry because of the undeniable distorting of Church teachings by Pope Francis and his appointees. We can use that anger to motivate us to trust God and do good. Or you can make your anger the center o…

Prayer against Internet pornography

Composed by Hieromonk Damascene
Published with blessing of Bishop MAXIM of Western America
Before turning on the computer, make three bows, kiss the holy icons, and say:

O Lord Jesus Christ, my God and Savior, through the prayers of Thy Most Pure Mother and of my Patron Saint and Guardian Angel, preserve me from all sinful pleasures in all my senses; help me not to look at evil and impure images that will harm my soul and separate me from Thee; help me to cut off the desire to indulge in such unchaste activity; and help me rather to do work that is productive and pleasing to Thee and to Thy Church, that I may glorify Thee, together with Thine Unoriginate Father and the Most Holy, Good and Life-creating Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Bin Laden Killing Most Botched Operation in History Covered-up by Media

The Agendas Behind the bin Laden News Event
by Paul Craig Roberts

The US government’s bin Laden story was so poorly crafted that it did not last 48 hours before being fundamentally altered. Indeed, the new story put out on Tuesday by White House press secretary Jay Carney bears little resemblance to the original Sunday evening story. The fierce firefight did not occur. Osama bin Laden did not hide behind a woman. Indeed, bin Laden, Carney said, "was not armed."

The firefight story was instantly suspicious as not a single SEAL got a scratch, despite being up against al Qaeda, described by former Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld as "the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth."

Every original story detail has been changed. It wasn’t bin Laden’s wife who was murdered by the Navy SEALs, but the wife of an aide. It wasn’t bin Laden’s son, Khalid, who was murdered by the Navy SEALs, but son Hamza…

7 Lies About Bin Laden's Killing by the Obama Administration

7 Deceptions About Bin Laden's Killing Pushed by the Obama Administration

The Obama administration deftly shaped the media coverage of its prized kill by detailing a picture-perfect, morally unambiguous special forces operation, which culminated in the death of Osama bin Laden. Most of the details of that narrative have now unravelled, but the conventional wisdom that the tale established remains. As Glenn Greenwald put it, that's par for the course: “the narrative is set forever by first-day government falsehoods uncritically amplified by establishment media outlets, which endure no matter how definitively they are disproven in subsequent days.”

In his address to the American people, and in subsequent media briefings by senior officials, we were told that a small force of as many as 25 Navy Seals stormed the compound with orders to take bin Laden alive, if possible.…

Boycott Netflix unless you are for Francis collaborator gay activist Fr. James Martin-like propaganda which blasphemously mocks Jesus Christ and for child porn.

Wow I just saw Child Porn on Netflix.

Dec 19, 2010

You'd get arrested for it and charged with possession of child pornography if it wasn't in a professional movie.

Why is netflix allowed to have child pornography on it's site?

I was recommended to watch a film on netflix called Home (from 2008), I think it's French. A young child actor, around 9 years of age is fully frontal naked more times in this film than I care to remember. I was disgusted.

I ask you, would YOU allow your own child to subject themselves to this sort of attention? If not, then why is it ok for them to be exploited on netflix? Can't America be better than this? Do we need to be a…

Pro-Porn Netflix is Anti-EWTN: Go to Pius Media the Catholic DVD Rental Company

How come EWTN documentaries never make it to netflics?.. the only one i've seen on netflics that has been aired on ewtn is "into silence", it would be REALLY COOL to see the documentaries i see on EWTN on a secular video service.
almost 85%(maybe more) of these documentaries are about pot smoking, sex, how evil the Church is, anti-God, alternative lifestyles, history channel's vision of Christian history and anti-government, and that's not mentioning the movies, is there any way that we can petition EWTN or NETFLICS to show good Christian(Catholic) films and documentaries like the Vatican approved shroud of Turin documentary, or the "river of light" wich i really enjoyed? I think this is another way we can reach people who don't get EWTN or go to Church or are misguided by protestant Neo-chritianity, or been thought unreal history of the world and its Church.

What do you guys think?
