2015: The Year of Truth
By Marielena Montesino de Stuart
The hours before dawn always hold a magical anticipation of the new day– a day when the hopes and dreams that live in our hearts can materialize. This is part of human nature. Life would be unbearable without hope and without dreams. This is the sentiment that accompanied me during the early morning hours of 2015.
But there are those who wake up each day facing a wall that holds back their hopes and dreams– because they live in dark places ruled by tyrants. Citizens and leaders of many countries know full well that something is very wrong in these dark places– but are unwilling to cry out in defense of victims.
So, will 2015 be the year when humanity’s conscience will wake up to the truth?
That communism is evil and one must never compromise with communists.
That Islamic-Marxism is the bloody core of the Islamic brutality that we are witnessing in the Middle East, Africa and parts of Asia.
That abortion is murder.
That marriage is only between one man and one woman– and that only a man and a woman can experience the divine and exquisite love that leads to the natural continuation of humanity, which is God’s universal call to order.
That the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by impostors– and they must be rooted out, one by one.
That Francis, through his administration of the Vatican, is putting the finishing touches on the “social justice” agenda (socialism) that for decades has destroyed the hierarchy of the Church from within.
2014 was a year of pain and bewilderment– but I am not one to let pain and bewilderment turn into resignation. After all, God’s plan was that we were not born to die– and resignation is often the death of our hopes and dreams. We were created in love, by God, with divine supernatural abilities that the average man chooses to ignore. The more we ignore this truth, the more we descend into the dark chambers of hopelessness.
It is my hope and my dream that 2015 will be a year of truth. A year of courage. A year of action. A year for citizens and leaders across the world to stand on the side of the angels.
