What Can We Expect for 2017?

What Can We Expect for 2017?

“The key to survival is fidelity to our Christian principles and confidence in Providence.”

As we enter 2017, many people are still recovering from the stress and drama of 2016. From a political, social and religious standpoint, 2016 was a year of unexpected and unimaginable turmoil. The year brought us to the edge of a tall cliff.

Equally traumatic and unexpected were the last-minute rescues from disastrous descents into the chasm below. Fortunately, the plunge to ruin was avoided (for now) not only by the unexpected results of the American elections but some good reactions worldwide, in which people brexitted away from global and socialistic “solutions” which they saw as overbearing and catastrophic. The death of Communist icon Fidel Castro added yet another blow to leftist movements everywhere that suffered terrible defeats in 2016.

The situation, however, remains dangerous and tenuous, as instability, uncertainty and chaos are found everywhere. The frenetic intemperance of our frantic lifestyles has upended so many of the anchors and convictions that keep a society well-grounded and balanced. A great confusion exists inside the Church about moral teachings. Society appears to have lost the moral compass that would help us find our way out of the present mess.

And so entering 2017, we have not yet gone off the cliff; rather we have only avoided disaster. We are still precariously perched on the edge of a precipice looking out over a vast and alarming panorama. Choices must now be made to find a way out. Avoiding disaster does not mean the fight is over. It only means a new phase has just begun.

If 2016 was the year of the unexpected, we might well ask what we can “unexpect” for 2017.

“we should imagine a giant rollercoaster with all sorts of twists, turns and dives that can be extremely dangerous”

If there is a new image that might be used to describe the coming 2017, it might be that of a roller coaster near the precipice. It is admittedly a strange metaphor since roller coasters do not typically appear near cliffs. However, the image somehow fits since it reflects the carnivalesque atmosphere of a political year full of twitterfests, email hacking wars and reality show antics that characterized events both here and abroad.

Thus, we should imagine a giant rollercoaster with all sorts of twists, turns and dives that can be extremely dangerous, nerve-racking and dizzying. This particular roller coaster does, however, allow for turns and alternative routes depending on the skills and capacities of those in the cars.

Those who avoided disaster are euphoric because this unexpected rollercoaster appeared on the precipice. They have entered the cars and are festively celebrating. Others are frightened and angry at the prospect of leaving what they think is the security of the precipice for the risky route ahead. They enter the cars reluctantly.

As the rollercoaster starts to pull out from its resting place, everyone, festive or angry, on the right or the left, needs to prepare for the first descent. They need to strap themselves in. If not, the cars will become a tangle of highly emotional and irrational people struggling to survive the unexpected twists and turns that will inevitably come.

What Does Saint Thomas Say About Immigration?

This is the state of the world today. We are beginning to descend from the precipice for a ride from which we can “unexpect” just about anything to happen. There are political challenges found in an increasingly aggressive China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran from which we expect war, an uneasy peace and anything in-between. Islamic terrorism can and does ruthlessly strike anywhere and in unexpected places – even open-air Christmas markets. There are financial challenges ahead in the form of asset bubbles, massive debt and regulation. There are the moral problems like abortion, assisted suicide, attacks on marriage and sexual identity issues that are promoted everywhere. These leave in their wake a trail of broken marriages and families, shattered lives and relationships, devastated communities and empty churches, that turn people’s lives upside down.

How we deal with these challenges will determine the course of the roller coaster ride we can expect in 2017. All we really know now is that it will be full of unnerving twists, turns and dives. We may even crash if not careful. No one can predict what will happen in the face of so many unknowns. However, there is only one way to be prepared for the roller coaster ride. We need to be strapped inside by our principles that will hold us firmly in place and allow us to make the proper judgments to guide the cars away from disaster.

Even with the straps in place, it will not be an easy ride. There will be those inside the cars who think they can leave their principles behind and ride unrestrained. There will even be those who will scoff at the laws of physics and believe that they can do their own thing regardless of gravity and reality. When the unexpected twists and turns happen, such occupants will create havoc inside the car. There needs to be enough heroic people inside the cars who are strapped in by their principles and can step up to the plate and return things back to order.



But these principles cannot be just any principles or values. They cannot be based on emotions or feelings that guide so many people today down the road to disaster. Rather they must be tied to an objective moral law as enshrined in the Ten Commandments. These principles should be embedded in institutions like marriage, the family and private property, without which any return to order is impossible.

The principles must lead us back to God, the Source and Creator of all order. We must have recourse to God if we are to survive the dangerous path down the mountain.

In 2017, we might ‘unexpect’ Divine action. As the hundredth anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima approaches, it is impossible for Catholics not to think of her Message in 1917. Looking at the past, we saw her maternal warnings about world wars, conflicts, persecutions, and the spreading of the errors of Russia throughout the world have all come to pass. There is no reason to doubt that her remaining predictions for the future will also happen. In the back of many people’s minds is the question of whether this will be the “Fatima year” when further events might occur—and heavenly aid might be supplied.

So much could happen in 2017. The key to survival is fidelity to our Christian principles and confidence in Providence. Indeed, we were brought to the edge of the abyss in the first place because so many abandoned moral principles over the last decades. We have avoided disaster so far, but it would be wrong to think that we will survive the rough roller coaster ride ahead without a return to moral principles.

    I agree we need to pray every day, I felt we received a gift from God in the USA elections. We now need to support our president in our prayer life.

    • Eskimo man

      Trump supports Israel, which is the same as supporting those who control the satanic US government. Israel is preparing for their false Messiah the Antichrist.

      • 0b323

        Eskimo man you are from the planet stupid.

        • Eskimo man

          If you don’t know about what I said then you are from the planet stupid, stupid. You also show that you have a very small intellect with your senseless comment.

        • Toni Tippin

          Eskimo man. I don’t understand. Why do you think Jewish people are satanic? Seriously.

          • Eskimo man

            Where and when did I say that I think all Jewish people are satanic moron?

          • Toni Tippin

            You made several references to people of Jewish faith being satanic.

          • Eskimo man

            Jews are antichrist and antichristian, and that would mean they are satanic. Read the Talmud and see what they say about Christians.

          • Thorneel

            Least you forget the Jews mocked and gave up our savior for Crucifixion to save a murderer. The only Jews worthy of our respect are Messiah Jews.

          • Eskimo man

            What are Messiah Jews? If they are not Catholic they are not Christian, and have no connection to Christ.

      • White Knight

        To harm Israel is to incur the wrath of God. This is true REGARDLESS of Israel’s moral disposition. God set precedents in the Old Testament that even if the other side won’t hold up their end of the bargain, HE still will. Those who bless Israel will be blessed, those who curse it will be cursed. So, even if you are correct and Israel is the center of all evil, God will still keep His word.
        With this knowledge in hand: Trump, please help Israel as much as possible, because we need God’s blessings like the desert needs the rain right now.

        • White Knight

          He does this for His name’s sake. As a second point, Israel certainly has some evil people in it. So do all countries. That being said, Israel never starts the fights over there. If they’re so awful, why do the large % of Muslims living there like it so much? Look it up.

          • Jacqueleen

            I often thought the same thing. Could it be that the Palestinians would rather live with the sane, educated Jews than in any of the nearby unpredictable, hostile, uncivilized Arab countries? Then, the thought occurred to me that they are multiplying and waiting to be in the majority to take over Israel without firing a shot? Either way, the Palestinians are not peaceful in and of themselves. They belong in an Arab Country. Jesus can find them there for conversion.

          • Eskimo man

            You do know that there are Christian Palestinians don’t you?

          • Donna Willey

            Not Many. They Are mostly Muslim & Arab. There was never a “Palestinian” State. It was Lebanon & Syria that was mostly Christian. However, Islam has killed many Christians in both those countries.

          • Eskimo man

            There may not be many, but you cannot refer to Palestine being only Muslim. I know of several Christian Churches there that allowed Muslims to pray in their Churches because Israel had destroyed all the Mosques. After 70AD when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem the whore, the remaining Jews were scattered, and the land became predominantly Christian. It wasn’t until the early 6th century when the Persians conquered many Christian lands in the Middle East diminishing the Christian population, which allowed Mohamed’s Islam to grow without too much resistance. The Jews have killed many Christians throughout the ages including Christ Himself, so the Jews and Muslims are actually not much different from each other.

          • Jacqueleen

            Very few….fewer than in Syria…The demand for half the country is from the Radical Palestinians and not from the Christians. You do know that, of course!

          • Eskimo man

            It doesn’t matter how many there are they are Palestinians. Israel is not a Jewish country, it was Jewish up to 70AD then it became Christian before the Persians took control and later converted to Islam. And it is the Jews who are more radical than the Muslims. Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians, and Palestine is the worlds largest prison. Israel also created Hamas as an opposition to blind the people of the world to their real agenda.

          • Jacqueleen

            Why don’t you say it like it is…the radical Islamists took over Israel….Nebuchadnezzar from Mesopotamia, aka Babylon (and Iraq) and kept the Hebrews captive for 70 years. The bottom line is that the Jews took back the country and that’s that. They are far more civilized than their Arab neighbors and it stands to reason that the Palestinians would rather live with them than their own kind in nearby Arab countries. When I was in Israel, the Palestinians were throwing rocks at the Police Officers getting off duty and stirring up all kinds of trouble. Then, a young Arab boy was swinging a
            3 foot metal tube at the Pilgrims on the Via Dolorosa as they passed by.

            Do you hear the Christians living in Israel clamoring for a state? No…only the trouble makers.

          • Eskimo man

            Israel is not a Jewish country and that is that. It is the Jewish trouble makers that are clamouring for a Jewish state to house the Antichrist false Messiah. The Persians took over Israel before Islam was invented you wacko. The Jewish army goes around killing unarmed Palestinians on a regular basis, and yes all they have to defend themselves and their land is rocks. It was Britain that created the current false nation of Israel in 1967, and the goal is to destroy Christian civilization to make way for the New World Order of the false Jews of the Synagogue of Satan.

          • Jacqueleen

            What are you smoking? What a paragraph of nonsense. Take a Bible Study course and get an education. THEN ADD TRUCKS TO THE ROCKS…4 Innocent Israeli Soldiers in their 20’s dead by a wacko Arab. When in Israel, I forgot to add that the Palestinians drove a car on the sidewalk to kill police officers getting off duty. I quite frankly do not know why the Jews put up with the Palestinians when they could easily evict them all….

          • Eskimo man

            I bet I know more about the Bible than you, and it is already obvious that Israel in the Bible is referring to different entities. If you go to a heretic Protestant Bible study all you will get is nonsense. What the Palestinians do is in self defence against the Zionist false Jews of the Synagogue of Satan that basically rule the world.

            From the Jewish Peril and The Catholic Church

            “We must always bear in mind that the Catholic Church is the only institution which has stood, and which will, as long as it remains in existence, stand in our way. The Catholic Church, with her methodical work and her edifying and moral teachings, will always keep her children in such a state of mind, as to make them too self-respecting to yield to our domination, and to bow before our future King of Israel.

            “We have blackened the Catholic Church with the most ignominious calumnies, we have stained her history and disgraced even her noblest activities. We have imputed to her the wrongs of her enemies, and thus brought these latter to stand more closely by our side.

            We are the supreme Masters of Peace and War. We can boast of being the Creators of the REFORMATION! Calvin was one of our Children; he was of Jewish descent, and was entrusted by Jewish authority and encouraged with Jewish finance to draft his scheme in the Reformation.

            “Martin Luther yielded to the influence of his Jewish friends, and again, by Jewish authority and with Jewish finance, his plot against the Catholic Church met with success.

            “We are grateful to Protestants for their loyalty to our wishes – although most of them are, in the sincerity of their faith, unaware of their loyalty to us. We are grateful to them for the wonderful help they are giving us in our fight against the stronghold of Christian Civilization, and in our preparations for the advent of our supremacy over the whole world and over the Kingdoms of the Gentiles.

            “Let us remember that as long as there still remain active enemies of the Catholic Church, we may hope to become Masters of the World… And let us remember always that the future Jewish King will never reign in the world before the Pope in Rome is dethroned, as well as all the other reigning monarchs of the Gentiles upon earth.”

          • Eskimo man

            You also have no idea of what is truly going on in the world, because it is Israel that starts ALL the fights, and Israel that is committing genocide against the Palestinians. Please take a look at this piece from 1936, it will explain everything.

          Please disregard what this guy Eskimo pie says. He’s part of the fake news syndrome running in the country. He will troll for good websites and post inflammatory nonsense just to piss people off. Let’s tell him – go back to CNN you clown, I hear Wolf Blitzer howling your name. Faith in GOD is all we need !!!

            I’m not a troll you idiot, and all I speak is truth, the fact is that the truth hurts those who are ignorant of it. Faith alone will get you nowhere, faith with out works is dead, and false faith will take you to hell for eternity.

        • Eskimo man

          Firstly the current country called Israel is an invention of the British who have ties with the Zionist false Jews of the Synagogue of Satan. Israel was created in 1967, and it is not the Israel mentioned in the Bible. The Israel in the Bible is the Church of God’s people, and the Jews are not it anymore. Anyone claiming to be a Jew is an antichrist, in other words they reject God by hating Christ. Your knowledge is not Christian knowledge because you are with the Jews who reject Christ by rejecting His Holy Catholic Apostolic Church which is the Body of Christ and the only Christian Church in history.

          • Jacqueleen

            The Islamists reject Christ, too..as God, that is!

          • Eskimo man

            No joke, but they didn’t kill their Messiah did they ?

            But Trump, Putin and the Brexit have posed a major roadblock to their communist New World Order. Keep telling more people no matter how much ridicule you face, most people eventually will wake up, and don’t stop praying to our Heavenly Father and the rosary every day.

          • Eskimo man

            Are you Catholic? And regardless of Trump being President the powers that be will still bring in their New World Order of the Jews, with a one world government that the Antichrist heads. There is Catholic prophecy that see’s Russia winning the third world war, but at the end of it Russia will be reduced to nothing and the Jews will still have their state of the Antichrist. Also most people will not wake up because they prefer the things of the world over God, and most people are going to hell. That is what they want. I try to tell people these things but they are so mind controlled they ignore me. I will keep going though as long as I am able.

      • Robert Goercke

        Yeah. I’d hate to admit it but you are right. The proposed wall isn’t to keep the mexicians out, it’s to keep us in. It’s a trap.

  • Unknown_soldier1

    I struggle every day just to survive this absolutely absurd time I can see clearly…..yet for others taking notice and making conversation about it is the evil to avoid. Absolute insanity are the times we live in….How one can continue to reject Christ in the wake of what we are witnessing today…..Day is night and night is day….evil is good and good is evil…delusion is king and pointing it out is called negativity…..just ignore and pretend you don’t see it…I am told by my so called loved ones.

    • Heather Fleming

      Well, you are not alone so take comfor in that! Also why should WE expect to be treated any differently than Jesus was treated here? He said those who accept me will accept you – and the rest will not. The tough thing I find is how to continue to OBEY Him out of l ove for HIM – which means love those who hate me, forgive those who use me, and pray for them all. Just trying to do this mandates I ask God to help m e with it… and then a miracle happens and He gives me insight into other people that I wouldn’t personally want to imagine, but it prompts me to realise we are all in the same boat. People who are deluded by self interest are just continuing in the manner into which all of us are born. They believe lies. that’s a massive handicap for them.

  • gregjohn

    We need to pray everyday, and set a moral example for others to follow. As Christians we must
    take the lead to set the Moral example that we want to see in America, and not expect others to
    do this for us. We are called to be Apostles in an age of immorality, as much as the twelve Apostles
    were in the time of Christ. If there is to be a return to Morality and Peace on Earth, then each of
    us need to realize that it must begin with me.

  • djr6

    Our Lady of the Rosary alone has the power to change everything when she is ready, our faith will be tested the Church and our culture did not heed her words. Look at the approved messages from apparitions and mystics, the Holy Mass has been corrupted as well as the priesthood. If a fish is born into “polluted water” it doesn’t know or understand “clean water”. We are all contaminated and must restore ourselves to the magisterial teachings of Christ’s Church and a life of prayer and devotion. It is time to lose your life for love of Christ than to save your life to live as you please. Our Lady can help sincere hearts to overcome themselves in this world that they may see things eternally.

    • AGNES

      PRAISE GOD! LOVE IT! Thank you – your words remind me of my mother 🙂

  • Tina Salloum

    Yes, we all need to focus on the message of Fatima: Prayer, Penance and Conversion, but so few people even know about the apparitions and fewer yet, believe in them. My home parish (through our Legion of Mary prayer group) is hosting a dinner and speeches about Fatima this Lent in early March. My prayer group is all excited. Hopefully, we’ll send the message out, at least in our community. The real message though is prayer, prayer, prayer; it’s the only way to convert hardened hearts, of which there are far too many. I fear the bad guys right now far outweigh the good. That’s why we all need to pray and never stop praying…

    • Agnes

      Amen -PRAY AND TRUST IN GOD! THIS IS A FIGHT WORTH DYING FOR – FAITH my brothers and sisters! Let the LOVE of Christ Reign in our hearts!! Meditate on Our Lords Passion!

GOD always Prevails and HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS!! I am a testament of His Love having come from a background of great abuse, abandonment , loss. I must be ready to die for HIM no matter the circumstances!! Faith my brothers and sisters. Agnes (19)

    • Toni Tippin

      Tina, I agree. There is a war on Christians. A vast amount are atheists, ‘whom I pray for daily.’ We must pray for unbelievers.
      I also agree, there are Christians who do not thank our Holy Mother. Many say we’re evil and worshiping an idol. How anyone can say it’s sinful to thank Blessed Mother, the Mother of Jesus, is beyond understanding.

      • Tina Salloum

        Yes. I agree. Thank you for your comment…God bless you.

  • PatriciaFraide

    Yes we need to pray every day. Then we are hit with trajady(so) at home and prayer comes hard for some. I just lost my husband of 53+ years and am going through a period of emptiness and feeling deserted by God and everyone, though surrounded by loving children. I’m trying to find my way back to the closeness and comforting praylive I had before this happened. We had just given up our large home and property to live with our daughter in another state because of our heath. The change change of altitude was just too much for my husband and his condition codition couldn’t adjust. Now I divide my time between my daughters home and sons home, one in Nevada, one in Calif. so many changes.

    Due to physical disabilities, I’m only able to attend Mass and go to Confession on rare occasions, which add to my sorrows just now. I know I’m sounding so full of woe, but I’ve been one that prayed the Rosay, my Morning Offering and Meditation and am just now slowly returning to the Morning Offering and Meditation. I sorely miss the Rosay and that’s my next step after the burial of my husband next week, though I’ve tried before, life has not given me a chance in the busy life I find myself thrust into. My daughter has five beautiful children and while I dearly love my grandchildren, I admit I’m not used to the chaos they bring to a household.

    I look at the world around me and I see all the chaos taking place and mine seems so insignificant. Then I think of the Year of Fatima and like all thinking Catholic, wonder what 2017 will hold for this year. I’m almost desperate to get back to my prayer life as not only I, but the world, most especially, needs every prayer that a good Christian can offer.

    • Toni Tippin

      Patricia…So sorry you lost your husband. 53-years is a long time.
      We all have problems.. feel sadness and heartache.
      I lost my mother this year. There are five of us kids. Our father died when I was 16…I being the oldest and the youngest child was only 6-months-old.
      Our mother was mentally ill. Living at home was terrible.
      Later in life, she somewhat healed, and all was better.
      Because of the abuse, I turned away from God. I stopped going to church, praying, etc.
      I felt hurt, abandoned. I felt God didn’t care for me or my siblings.
      Then, my life turned around. I love Our Lord, Jesus and The Virgin Mary.
      Sometimes prayer is difficult, but we must be strong.
      The devil wants us to suffer, to turn away from God.
      Patricia, I will pray for you. Stay strong. Love your children and grandchild. ‘Yes, children are noisy,’ but we must bear with them. Bless you.

      • PatriciaFraide

        Thank you Toni. I do love all my grandchildren, its just so hard to deal with the noisy chaos. And i agree the Devil is in the works here. Today for the first time I made it through my full morning offering and meditatoionnand plan to say at least part of a Rosary tonight. This is so verry differy NOT me. I am usally very stweady, happy and secure in my faith and my place innthe world. Thank you for your prayers, so needed to get back my peace!

  • djr6

    Remember “My grace is sufficient for you.” When you feel empty and tempted to fill yourself with self-indulgence, remember “My grace is sufficient for you.” This is a form of suffering we can give to Jesus through Mary. As we conquer ourselves, little by little, we become more useful instruments of God. Alone. we can do nothing, with God all things are possible.

  • Pattie Kelly

    We need to pray for President Elect Donald J Trump that he and his family make it to 01/20/17. There is too much evil talk out there about assignations, etc. If he makes it thru that will a blessing in of itself.

  • Terrence Snyder

    God is in control. He has a plan for believers and it is good. God bless America – God bless our new President Trump – God bless us all and turn us toward You in prayer.

  • Ed

    I do not get involved in many of these discussions. However with the regard to the message of Fatima one of the requests , which I believe , is most important is the request for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope and ALL the Bishops publicly at the same time. She said she would come back and ask for this. In June 1929 She came back appeared to sister Lucy. and made the request. It was also told to the children that if this was done the world would be granted a period of peace. This has not ben done yet many will say it has been done. This is what we should be praying for.

    • Toni Tippin

      Ed. I recall reading the Popes, Bishops, etc, said a Blessing, but did not mention Russia by name.
      I wonder if they excluded Russia for fear of wars. Either way, they should have honored Our Lady’s request.

      • Ed

        Toni In 1984 Pope John Paul II wanted to consecrate Russia and was going to but the Bishops would not go along with It I don’t know why, I think politics, O one has tried since.

        • Toni Tippin

          Ed, I recall the event in 1984. Wonder why the Bishops refused to go along. So sad. Sorry world.

            Sr. Lucy said, and even stated in her book, that though all of the Bishop’s did not participate in the consecration of Russia, the Blessed Mother told Sr. Lucy that She accepted what was done.

            Does it have to be done again? I can’t answer that, but I don’t think so.

    Interesting but not exactly accurate. The first thing we should look for is the economy is getting better. Although it will have positive effects in our nation and will appear that we are headed for peace but it is a trick and false. The purpose of the deception is to keep us in a calm and relaxed state. When we are calm and relaxed, the powers to be will move quickly to complete their purpose which is of control.
    It will is intended to make Trump look like a hero but you have to look at what is really going on in our society and who stands to benefit and who or what is really behind all of it. That’s when the switch is pulled and the announcement or confession will be made. At which point we will understand why Trump’s foreign policy is to build a wall and make the Mexician government pay for it. I’d hate to break it to you but the wall isn’t intended to keep illegals out, it’s intended to keep us in. It’s a trap! We the announcement is made of who and what is in control. when the American people come to realize that we no longer have civil rights or freedoms. When a militarized government invade our communities, our homes and take everything is when we will realized that we’ve been deceived, and betrayed. Treason by the NWO.
