I love opinionated non-PC people. This blog is to vent my opinions on life, the universe and everything. Which is 42 which in gematria is "My Heart" (LBY) according to Rabbi Abulafia. The Divine Heart is the centre of everything.

We are the Night's Watch: A Hebrew Catholic Reflection

"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come."
―The Night's Watch oath
This oath of a military order in the "Game of Thrones" really sums up what the charism of the Little Eucharistic Brothers of  Divine Will is about but on a spiritual level. Yeshua said on his darkest Night in the Garden of Gethsemane: "Would you not watch one hour with me?". Those of us who have given up all do it to serve God and our fellow brothers and sisters in the battle against the Night or Darkness. The Winter is indeed coming with the living dead or white walkers coming in it's train. We mount the wall everytime we enter the chapel to do Eucharistic Adoration. The Zohar states: "The hour of prayer is the hour of battle". Our chapel is the Watch tower or look out Tower and we stand in the gap for others.

We pray for the return of the true King like John Snow in Game of Thrones or Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings. This ultimately of course refers to the return of King Yeshua but on the earthly level we await and pray for the rise of the Great Catholic King and the Great French Pope ( a Gandalf -like figure). We pray for the light of God's Divine Will to spread and explode in the world in order to bring in the Kingdom of Holiness on earth as it is in Heaven. All of us secretly long for a Great warrior Queen to fight on our behalf and free us who we can serve like Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones or Galadriel the Elven Queen in Lord of the Rings who are types for Our Lady our Great Jewish Warrior Queen who fights our spiritual battles. There is something in the soul of the Anglo-Gaelic English-speaking peoples that revere their Queens even more than their Kings.
In the Game of Thorns we have recently learnt that John Snow who is considered as a Bastard is in fact really the legitimate son of the Targaryen Dynasty and the true King who should be sitting on the Iron Throne. Thus the Great Monarch will also be revealed as a true heir to the French Throne and King Louis XVII even though some will question his legitimacy as we have seen with those who question whether Prince Harry is the son of Prince Charles. However time will soon tell us who these prophetic figures will be and we in the meantime pray for the victory of the Light of the Messiah to triumph over the Darkness that is descending on the world. We await the Messiah's coming as the Thief and Bridegroom in the Night who is embodied on earth in the persons of the Davidic Heir (Monarch) and the Shepherd of the Flock (Pope). Firstly as Christians (Notzrim) and secondly as Catholics and thirdly as consecrated monacelli (little monks or brothers) we are indeed the Night's Watch!
