HAVE YOU BEEN RAPTURED? AM I ALONE IN REMAINING? ANYONE OUT THERE?
It seems that I was left behind. It is early in the morning, so I don't know if Fr. Justin or our seminarian Avery Hanna have been raptured and I certainly don't want to enter their rooms at this hour to find out.
It is dark outside and I can't tell if anyone remains. I should have stocked up on food since there will be no farmers, butchers or grocery store owners to service my needs.
And what about gasoline. Who will do the oil refining?
I think I have enough clothes for a while. I hope I don't break my glasses. I'd feel like Burgess Meredith in that famous episode of the Twilight Zone, when the world comes to an end through a nuclear holocaust and he's left behind having survived it. His only pleasure in life was reading and he finds a library with thousands of books only to drop his glasses and have them shattered!
I haven't been to any cemeteries to see if tombs have been opened and are emptied. I'm sure no one was raptured from the Catholic Cemetery in town.
I've always suspected that a goodly number of my parishioners were Protestant at heart and since only Catholics and non-believers will be left behind, I suspect these Protestant leaning parishioners squeaked into being raptured!
And of course, Macon, Georgia has the highest number of churches (protestant) per capita than any other community in America, so most of Macon as well as my Protestant leaning parishioners probably are gone! I might truly be alone! Does that mean Fr. Justin and Avery Hanna were really Protestants and thus saved?
Dear God, don't let me be alone!
YOU CAN READ THE CATHOLIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE RAPTURE BY PRESSING THIS SENTENCE. I HOPE HE'S RIGHT AND THAT I'M NOT ALONE!
UPDATE! UPDATE! ENTIRE CHURCHES LEFT BEHIND!!!!!
