Blood Moon or a Super Blue-Blood Moon: What Do It Portend?

The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood , before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord” Acts of the Apostles 2-20 
See that button-like light just southwest of my chimney?  That's a Super Blue Blood Moon!

I took that on my way to St. John Fisher Catholic Church at around 6:10 AM.  Today is the feast of St. John Bosco, the patron saint of Catholic schools.  St. John Bosco has alot of work cut out for him these days, as the Archdiocese is more about skyscrapper development in Streeterville than in providing little kids with a foundation in the faith of our fathers. Cardinal Blaze " The Closer" Cupich is more concerned with what Carol Marin thinks of him than the parishioners of Immaculate Conception in Crestwood.

Moons come and go and so do schools that helped build the character of generations of Chicagoans.
End of the World?  Over my dead body, or at least until my aromatic meatloaf *comes out of the oven.

Anyway, if the Final Day was underway with full HD Sound and Effects, people would be tuning in to The View, or Ellen to find out exactly why Melania was wearing white at the State of the Union.

We have had many blood moons, or as they used to say in Cleveland before the Old Chief got tomahawked by bed-wetters, " Many Moons!"

God raised up Patriarchs, Judges, Prohpets and Kings and told them exactly what was expected of us.   We did whatever the hell we felt like, until the shit his the fan and Lot's wife went all salty; then we got right with the Almighty, until things got soft again and then ignored He Is Who Am - all three of Him.

We don't listen, unless it is on cable news.

We don't care, until Cardinal Closer shutters all of the schools.

Then what?

The Blood Moon was beautiful.

Now, about that meatloaf: Hickey's Herbed Meatloaf (lifted from the NYT's Recipe with my variations):

1      pound         ground beef
      1/2  pound         ground veal
      1/2  pound         ground pork
    2                    eggs
      1/2  cup           fine Italian bread crumbs
      3/4  cup           chopped parsley
      1/4  cup           finely chopped chives
    3      Tablespoons   Fresh basil
      1/4  cup           finely chopped green pepper
    1 1/2  teaspoons     salt
      1/2  teaspoon      freshly ground black pepper

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine all ingredients
    Shape the mixture into a Rugby Ball
 Place the loaf on Tin Foil  pie plate.
 Top the loaf with  Red Onion and 6 whole garlic pods.  Bake one and one-half hours.   Chill over night.  Slice and serve on baby spinach leaves with horseradish on good pumpernickle bread.
