Recently I took a mini poll regarding the title of my blog, Angels Falling. What prompted me to seek others’ opinions on the name change (from The Rosary Trail to Angels Falling) was an email I received from one of the readers, suggesting that the demonic activity within my house seems to have gotten worse since I changed the title of my website. She went on to say that she views the title “Angels Falling” as a negative, implying that people are falling for the evil one. She said that although she knew that was absolutely not the message I was trying to convey when I changed the title, in her mind that is the perception she has. She then suggested I ask other people what they think.
I thought that was a good idea.
Your feedback is welcome
If anyone would like to leave a comment or send me a personal email giving me your thoughts on this, I would appreciate knowing how you feel. I think I mentioned this in a earlier post, but in case I didn’t, I want to be clear that my intention in changing the title was for the purpose of helping people who are suffering from demonic harassment in one form or another. Because The Rosary Trail was experiencing the most traffic on the posts titled “Demonic Oppression,” “Demonic Infestation,” “House Blessing,” and “Paranormal Disturbances,” to name a few, after my site crashed last spring, I just figured it would be a wise move to have it reworked, redesigned, and retitled to reflect the seemingly growing problem of demonic activity and how and what people should do to combat this bizarre spiritual epidemic that is plaguing the world, and has been since the beginning of time.
Please keep in mind that The Rosary Trail’s message is at the heart of every post I write, and that will always be so. I know many of you have stayed loyal to this blog through its early days, to its crash last spring, and now in its new name change phase. And most of you (at least I think) are Catholic. Your sticking around through the years and the changes means more to me than if a thousand new readers were to come upon my blog, only to stay for a little while and then leave once they realize this isn’t about ghost hunting or chasing evil spirits around. Thank you to all of you loyal friends (because that’s what you are to me) for your continued support! But also, we must keep in mind that there are countless people out there, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, who are suffering from demonic harassment, and these people deserve our time, consideration, and most especially prayers, in a way that may require a different approach than what The Rosary Trail was providing.
Which is where this new/old blog comes into play…
There are angels, and there are “angels.”
We’ve all been called an “angel” at one time or another. Haven’t you ever heard someone say, “Oh, she’s such an angel!” or “He was an absolute angel throughout the whole ordeal.” or “You are my angel.” Of course we know that is merely an expression. People can’t be angels! (Although there are certainly many out there who harbor the false notion that when we die we become angels. But that is another topic for another time.) The point is, my use of the word “angels” in the title isn’t necessarily meant to be literal, and yet at the same time, it can be literal, depending on the situation. Angels Falling is about more than devils and demons and bad spirits falling from the skies and afflicting humanity. This is an excerpt from my “Welcome” page, and I hope it clears up any lingering confusion about why I changed the title:
Angels Falling is more than a blog about the paranormal and demon infestation—it is a story of falling from grace, then rising again. It’s a story of battling the dark forces and turning tragedy to triumph. But mostly, it’s a journey of discovery—about finding the hidden jewel that is embedded within every soul, and shining a light amidst the darkness, even when there seems to be no hope in sight. Shakespeare could teach us all a lesson or two when he reminds us that misfortune can be a blessing in disguise. There really is so much to be grateful for. And if it took years of pain, turbulence, and tragedy to open my eyes to what matters most in this life, well, then I suppose it will all have been worth it in the end.
Pray the Rosary
Pray it every day. It crushes the bad angels, and causes those of us who have fallen from grace to seek a better life on our road to salvation. It’s the same road for all of us, but finding it and staying on it is another matter altogether. The Rosary Trail is my continuous journey through this life, as I strive to understand the mysteries of the Rosary, and “imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise.”
