As many have seen and heard, there has been devastating #floods in #Kerala, #India (3.9 million #Catholics) that has been going on for the past few days with over 325 deaths. Many have been left #homeless, have no food, shelter or clothes and more than 100,000 displaced from their homes and families. We ask that you please add your brothers and sisters in Kerala in your nightly prayers and again at Mass this week. Also, if you are able to, our followers in India sent us this link to donate:
https://donation.cmdrf.kerala.gov.in/ We’ve added the URL to our profile. Thank you and God bless!

The Second Coming At this time, the final, or …

The Second Coming
At this time, the final, or general judgment will occur. Jesus said, “Those who have done right shall rise to life; the evildoers shall rise to be damned” (Jn 5:29). Our Lord described this judgment as follows: “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, escorted by all the angels of heaven, He will sit upon His royal throne and all the nations will be assembled before Him. Then He will separate them into two groups, as a shepherd separated sheep from goats” (Mt 25:31-32).
.
Here each person will have to account for his conduct and the deepest secrets of his soul will come to light. How well each person has responded to the prompting of God’s grace will be made clear. Our attitude and actions toward our neighbor will reflect how well we have loved our Lord. “As often as you did it for one of My least brothers, you did it for Me” (Mt 25:41).
.
Our Lord will judge us accordingly. For those who have died and already have faced the particular judgment, their judgment will stand. Those living at the time of the Second Coming will receive judgment. Those who have rejected the Lord in this life, who have sinned mortally,, who have no remorse for sin and do not seek forgiveness, will have condemned themselves to hell for all eternity. “By rejecting grace in this life, one already judges oneself, receives according to one’s works and can even condemn oneself for all eternity by rejecting the Spirit of love (Catechism, No. 678). The souls of the righteous will enter heavenly glory and enjoy the beatific vision and those who need purification will undergo it.

No words are sufficient to express the outrage…

No words are sufficient to express the outrage and devestation surrounding the abuse in the Catholic Church.
As faithful Catholics, it’s tempting to try and minimize the evil by saying things about how it’s only a minority or this occurs in other institutions. This isn’t helpful. Even one priest committing these atrocities is too many. Even one bishop covering up abuse is too many. We shouldn’t invalidate the victims’ experiences by focusing on statistics. That isn’t a Christian attitude, and it doesn’t help the Church.
The other temptation is to stay silent altogether because we don’t want to criticize the Church. Calling out these evils isn’t criticizing the Church; it is criticizing those who have failed to live up to the promises they made to the Church.
The Church can only heal if we root out the evil that has infiltrated it.
What “crying out” looks like will be different for each person. There are absolutely actions that people can take that will vary by Diocese and Parish, but what we can all do is pray.
Pray for healing for the victims. Pray for the rot to be removed from the Church. Pray for people whose faith is shaken or who have left the Church because of these scandals. Pray for the good and holy priests who will face backlash despite their innocence. Pray in reparation for the sins. Pray for God’s mercy. Keep praying.

We fly to your protection, most holy Mother of God; please listen to our petitions and needs, and deliver us from all dangers, ever glorious and blessed Virgin Mary.
Mary, our model and mother, by your obedience and patience you have taught us how to be true children of God. Please help us by your powerful assistance to overcome all our weaknesses, and to fulfill perfectly our tasks in life.
By your compassionate aid may we ever stand in spirit with you beneath the cross of Christ so that we may also rejoice with you in your divine Son’s triumphant victory over sin and death.
In your maternal kindness help us to be faithful to prayers in the company of God’s Church as you were one with the Apostles in the upper room as you waited for the promised Spirit of Pentecost.
With your gracious assistance may we be near you in the glory of Christ’s kingdom come to sing with you and all the faithful the eternal praise of God. Amen.
