From Fr. Ioan Valentin Istrati. Selection and translation by Ioan Calineac.

Along with the infestation of the most distinguished values of humanity: family, faith, education, nation, language, with sinful anomalies, the fundamental sap of the human nation will be lost: The Blood of Christ that circulates through the veins of the world out of too infinite love. Everything can be mutilated: education can become redundant and useless, condemning people to an imbecilic life (the cases of children raised by wolves are not the subject of cartoons, but the horrific prophetic scenario of human extermination). The maternal language could no longer be learned for even the mute are people, is it not? The family is disintegrating under abominable sins and will become an abode for pedophiles, zoophiles or other horrors of death.

The social body of the west suffers from cancer with metastasis. It is a horrible pain, anesthetized by the morphine of tele-media and the terminal consumerism. The western patient, lying on his back on a hospital bed, watches the only reality that has remained on the ceiling: the illusion of HD pixels. There is only one solution for him. Nobody has ever healed from cancer just by affirming that he doesn't have it. Chemotherapy, natural remedies, radio-therapy, prayer, fasting and especially responsible operations for the removal of moral tumors.

Could you please refer me to the full text?

In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Two comments:

The "sap of humankind" in the West was stanched long before the present bizarrenesses (zoophilia in the home? really?) and would not be rejuvenated by their prohibition.

The blood of Christ, yes, is "too infinite" and that means it cannot "be lost." "Riches upon riches" as St. Paul puts it. Christian hope in God does not doubt an eternal provision for mankind.

The western patient, lying on his back on a hospital bed, watches the only reality that has remained on the ceiling: the illusion of HD pixels.

This is really wonderful.

In love did God create the world; in love does he guide it ...; in love is he going wondrously to transform it. --Abba Isaac

Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity. --Climacus
