Nurse Claire sends: On the upcoming solar eclipse

(Two weeks from tomorrow, on the transferred Feast of the Annunciation, a full solar eclipse will cross the USA from Texas to Maine. In conjunction with the 2017 eclipse, it will literally trace a cross over the nation. I have no idea what it means, if it means anything at all. I’m simply making note of it, and staying confessed. There will be more written in the coming days. Perhaps some speculation. After all, WWIII does seem to be fomenting, the stolen USA has now spent its way into irreversible collapse, and the stolen Church continues to submit its collective will to an apostate usurper. We are not going to play astrologer nor read tarot, I promise, but we are going to talk about the eclipse, and there is nothing wrong with that. -nvp)

On the upcoming solar eclipse

In case you missed it, on April 8 (the feast of the Annunciation this year since March 25 falls during Holy Week), there will be a solar eclipse that crosses the United States from south to north.

I feel compelled to comment on this as many Protestants and New Agers have globbed onto this event in order to promote various doomsday scenarios: the rapture, a “3 days of darkness” (a counterfeit one), and even the QAnon theory that the “white hats” will use the eclipse as cover for arresting the pedophile elites….or whatever.

So what does the Church say about signs in the sky? Among all the crazy talk out there, I’m going to link to some authentic Catholic teaching on how we should view these sort of astrological events.

  1. My nearby Ukrainian Catholic church will be celebrating the Annunciation tomorrow. Those Easterners do things in a different way. About fifteen years ago when the Annunciation fell on Good Friday, they had Mass in the morning to honor Our Lady, and then had Good Friday services (complete with Alleluias) that evening. And for them that day was not a day of fast or abstinence.

  2. It’s important to differentiate between astrology and astronomy. Astrology is ridiculous nonsense fortune telling forbidden to Catholics because it is a form if divination, an idolatrous insult to God outlawed in the Old Testament. Astronomy is mankind’s first science. And science is the study of Gods Laws. A total solar eclipse does indeed proclaim the glory of God. God’s clockwork in the sky is so precise that NASA publishes eclipse tables from 2000 BC to 3000 AD. Sun and moon, the biblical “greater and lesser lights” appear to us as being the same size in the sky, each taking up 1/2º degree of sky and presenting us with a perfect eclipse. The Sun is 400 x larger than the moon and also 400 x further away from us than moon is. These two 400 : 1 ratios are quickly and blasphemously dismissed by atheist scientists as “coincidence.” Furthermore the tip of moon’s shadow barely touches the earth making the path of totality very narrow, about 115 miles wide. Given the narrowness of the path, the shifting tracks across the globe, and the fact that eclipse seasons are 6 months apart make a total solar eclipse an extremely rare event. For example, the last total solar eclipse in Ohio was in 1806 and the next one in Ohio is in 2099.
