It happened in England in the late eighteenth century:
It would seem that the same thing is happening in Saudi Arabia – Power Grab in Riyadh Likely After Saudi King ‘Hospitalized for Dementia’.
I have the impression that historic events are taking place these days. I cannot forget the Feast of our Lady of the Rosary and the Battle of Lepanto. Then I consider how Russia is getting on with the job of flushing the terrorists and jihadists out of Syria, Irak and Afghanistan. Let us be careful of the temptation of hero-worshipping, but from what I read, I can only admire Putin and his courage in the face of the liberal west.
Now it is Saudi Arabia, that country that pretends to be modern, yet tortures and executes people like we Europeans stopped doing in the eighteenth century in the name of humanity and decency.
Now it seems that the governments of Afghanistan and Irak are asking help from Russia.
May divine grace illuminate and console us, bringing us to hope in a better future.
