homeless20jesus-9009635The Coming Economic Chastisement?

It’s Not Coming It’s Here!

In January 2008, after watching the signs for over two years, I began to write about what is broadly perceived as the coming economic chastisement – the imminent collapse of the global economy. I asked readers: “Are we on the verge of another Great Depression? Are we on the brink of TEOTWAWKI?” (The End of the World As We Know It)

It’s later than you think.  It’s time to “buckle up” spiritually. Late this spring I was blessed to hear a talk and attend a Mass offered by an American exorcist who was assistant to the well known Father Gabriel Amorth, chief exorcist of Rome.  He had a lot to say, but one phrase chilled me to the bone:

“I can count on less than the fingers of one hand the number of years remaining before all hell literally breaks loose.”

I’ve been working on the final version of “The Coming Economic Chastisement” that will be complete with spiritual preparations and it will soon be available. In the meanwhile, here are preview chapters:

Christine Hirschfeld

I never intended to run a Catholic antiquities and book business. Not in a million years. As a cradle Catholic, I grew up in a house that was filled with Catholic images and sacramentals not to mention an abundance of excellent books provided by family members who worked in publishing houses famous for their Catholic catalogues. The beautiful images and concepts presented in those books certainly had their effect in enhancing my identity as a Catholic. As the years passed, even in the midst of very un-Catholic settings, I became a repository for my friends’ Catholic “found objects.” Eventually, I had a family of my own. We’re a small family. There are just three of us. And two of us were born with the “junk collecting gene.” Garage sales attracted us like a magnet.
