The Inquisitor's Diary #2
It has been two weeks since my first edition of The Inquisitor’s Diary, and a couple of unexpected events have happened at my workplace that could have only been the work of Divine Providence.
I have noticed in the past few years that, in regard to myself, the Lord seems to precede a good that He is about to bestow upon me by first making me suffer some temporary evil. The Tuesday after I posted my first edition of this Diary, my friend with whom I worked with both at our old company and the new company that we both started at this past May 2022, was suddenly called into the manager’s office and essentially fired. I had no idea that such a meeting had occurred as I was busy trying to fix a minor issue with one of the machines I was using at the time.
My friend storms past me in anger raving about going home due to a mistake, and I have no idea what happened. Suddenly, I get called into the manager’s office and, naturally, think that something bad is about to happen. On the contrary. The manager wanted to let me know why he had to let my friend go, and because he knew we were friends, he wanted to make sure I was in possession of the facts. He knew (and indeed it came to pass) that my friend would give me his version of events, but I already had knowledge of everything. During this meeting, the manager expressed concern that I might follow my friend in leaving. I assured him that I wouldn’t. He ended by reminding me of what he said in my review the Friday prior, namely, that I had impressed everyone, including himself, and that he valued me and didn’t want me to leave. And that was that. Naturally, I was a bit sad that I wouldn’t have my friend to work with anymore.
Fast forward to this Thursday just gone, and I get called into the manager’s office again. This time, he informed me that one of my colleague’s who does all the admin for my shift is moving to the morning shift, and thus the admin post would be vacant. After consulting with my supervisor, he said that I was the first and only candidate he could of think of that would suit the position. I informed him that I did have a background in admin, which he didn’t even realise and that pleased him very much. After providing me with a list of the duties for the position, he asked me if I was interested in the position, and I affirmed I was. And so, I was promoted to the role of administrator. I began my training that very day with my supervisor.
So, the Divine Providence so worked events that after my friend left, I was promoted. I have no doubt that I probably wouldn’t have been promoted if my friend was still there.
Forgiving of loans and debts.
A debate has arisen in the US regarding the forgiving of student loans. The Biden Administration is seeking to forgive around $10,000 in student debt for millions of Americans. The Guardian newspaper (a British Leftist newspaper) reports that “[a]bout 43 million Americans have federal student debt, with an average balance of $37,667, according to federal data. A third of those owe less than $10,000. Half owe less than $20,000. The total amount of federal student debt is more than $1.6tn.” That amount, $1.6trillion, is bigger than the Australian economy!
American conservatives claim that such cancellation of debt is essentially Socialist. Perhaps these same conservatives - most, if not all, of whom are purported “Bible believing” Christians - need to re-read their Bibles, for in it they’ll find that God instituted the Jubilee Year amongst the Israelites, which was held every 50 years during which all debts were forgiven. If such forgiveness is Socialist, what does that make God Himself? I think American conservatives need to re-think their argumentation. The casual American use of “Socialist” and “Communist” against anything that isn’t American corporatism or consumerism is rather annoying.
The Church v the Antichurch
Antipope Francis continues his assault on the Bride of Christ. The amount of evil he gets up to is far more than I can write about, but here’s a nugget (aside from his continuing to destroy the Latin Mass and promote his Synod on Synods): He gave the red hat to one Bishop McElroy of the Diocese of San Diego. The said Bishop is a known cover-upper of child sex abuse and has even put a sodomite priest back into parish ministry! Once again, the Antipope shows his true colours. He has no problem promoting evil men to such influential positions in the Church, because he himself is an evil man. Not misguided. Not a bumbling fool. Pure and plain evil. And I’m becoming certain that he really might be the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist.
The Cost of Living Crisis
Once again, we are treated with news of the increasing crisis with the cost of living. Here in the UK, the energy regulator – Ofgem – has increased the energy price cap to near £4,000 a year. We’re told it’ll go up again in 2023. Let us remind ourselves when we hear all this economic doomsaying as to why we are in this situation: aside from the fact that our financial system is literally designed to implode, it isn’t helped by the fact that our respective governments decided to commit economic suicide in 2020 by locking everything down. Anyone with half a brain cell could have predicted the fallout we are now experiencing. But, at the time, it was a conspiracy theory to say such things. Now it’s a conspiracy fact. How ironic.
However, such financial crises as these remind us of the sobering fact that we should not put our trust in men, but in the Lord. I have consecrated all my possessions, as well as my finances and myself, to Our Heavenly Mother, asking Her to bless me with good things and with only those things which are conducive to my salvation, and to intercede for me that during these says of uncertainty to, as far as reason and the Lord’s Will permit, to grant me financial stability and to grant me relative comfort. Again, as far as is conducive to my salvation. I’m not asking to be stupidly rich (though chance would be a fine thing). Only to be stable and have – as far as God permits – little to no financial worries. So far, I have found that doing such things as consecrating my possessions to Our Lady actually works. I usually don’t have to worry too much about money. And, as noted above, I’ve been promoted which has the bonus of a slightly bigger salary. I’d highly recommend that you consecrate your possessions and finances to Our Lady.
