One of those ubiquitous virus warnings, with a twist, from the OpenCath listserv:
VIRUS ALERT: THE ADVENT VIRUS
Be on the alert for symptoms of inner HOPE, PEACE JOY, and LOVE!
The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions.
This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a firly stable condition of conflict in the world.
Some signs and symptoms of THE ADVENT VIRUS:
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
An unmistakable ability to enjoy the moment.
A loss of interest in judging others.
A loss of interest in conflict.
A loss of the ability to worry.
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation and thankfulness.
Contented feelings of connectedness with others and God's nature.
Frequent attacks of smiling.
An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than making them happen.
An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
Please send this warning out to all whom you love. This virus can and has affected many systems. Some systems have been completely cleaned out because of it!
Blessings and Health!
