What follows was supposed to be a comment. Then I read again the beginning of that last paragraph I wrote.
AOC makes me want to cry, I find her behavior pitiful, She is so obsessed with identity politics she cannot stop to marvel that anyone would so generously devote his life to serving others. Instead, she tries to arouse envy. Father Damien was a white male. So, he is automatically hateable? Apparently.
Ephesians 6 tells us how to stand against Satanic forces. How? It tells us about who we stand with, not about the things we stand against. We stand in the certainty of God’s truth, the righteousness of God, His gospel of peace, our faith in Him, the knowledge He brings salvation, and the wisdom He has bestowed upon us with His word.
Confronted with the armor of God, Satan flees, and AOC is just another blind soul who needs our prayers. She doesn’t know what she cannot see. We can only pray that she will see, realize her shame and repent.
Meanwhile, as you did, we can repeat the truth about Father Damien. When people like AOC condemn such as Father Damien, they remind us of why a statue like the one that memorializes Father Damien stands in the capitol. Once upon a time, Christians did not hide from the victims of disease or poverty or crime. The Christians who proceeded us risked much to care for the less fortunate, even those who were sick with dreaded diseases. AOC just frivolously spends other people’s money. When we compare her life to Father Damien’s, instead of a bright and shining life on hill, all we see is the wispy, dark and inky blackness of a dank swamp, for she behaves like a swamp creature.
I find consolation in the one and only friend who will never leave me,
that is, our Divine Saviour in the Holy Eucharist…
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the most tender of friends with souls
who seek to please Him.
His goodness knows how to proportion itself to the smallest of His creatures
as to the greatest of them.
Be not afraid then in your solitary conversations, to tell Him of your miseries,
your fears, your worries, of those who are dear to you, of your projects,
and of your hopes. Do so with confidence and with an open heart.”
St. Damien of Molokai (1840 – 1889)

can you hear the rising anger in my voice????
If not—I can speak louder.
I want to scream at the top of my lungs…“YOU ARROGANT IDIOT!!!”
