I leave for the Holy Land, and things go up in smoke back home. I am referring to the apocalyptic laws which passed in NY and nearly passed in VA. A non-practicing Catholic governor of NY rejoices at the slaughter of the most innocent. And our own governor says unconscionable words about infanticide? Evil seems to think it can come out of the shadows.
But let me say the most important words I can about Abortion: Abortion is a forgivable sin. The men and women of good will who carry this burden hear the whispers of the enemy of our souls telling them otherwise. Do not believe the lies. You can be forgiven, you can find mercy, Jesus will welcome you home.
But as for those who promote, legalize, and profit from the exploitation of vulnerable and overwhelmed women….. to them I give the words of our Lord, “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. Pay attention to yourselves!” (Luke 17:1-3a)
May the Lord deliver us from evil.
I have been carrying your prayer intentions with me in all of the shrines in the Holy Land and praying for each one specifically! Here are a few pictures from where Jesus walked.
Pax et Bonum,
