Father, you have given all peoples one common origin. It is your will that they be gathered together as one family in yourself. Fill the hearts of mankind with the fire of your love and with the desire to ensure justice for all. By sharing the good things you give us, may we secure an equality for all our brothers and sisters throughout the world. May there be an end to division, strife and war. May there be a dawning of a truly human society
built on love and peace. We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord Amen by catholic.org
I said to myself, "God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man," for a time for every matter and for every deed is there.” Ecclesiastes 3:17
The world shows us in vivid detail what evil is. All of us has the opportunity to evaluate whether or not we want to partake in what the world is telling us is "normal" or "justified in action".By choosing this world as his portion, man has brought himself to a level as a beast (evil) without being free. Let us not be overly frustrated by these callings toward temptation but, learn from it. None of us can understand and few of us consider the difference between the raational soul and the life of the beast. That is why we are called to reflect on what is said in Ecclesiates 3:17 "and I said to myself, both the just and the wicked God will judge since there is a time for every affair and on every work a judgement."
In my human nature lately, I'm given to think that the way God handles things is unfair.The spirit of this world seems to be allusive to His justice. However God's perception, timing, and judgement is more broader than mine regarding those that are lost to this world. I need to recall that I am not walking in their shoes, nor am I granted knowledge of what God is planning for those who reject his law. You and I, we need to keep our eyes on the prize of heaven. We need to cooperate in God's plan for our lives as believers.
Solomon assures us that God will judge.The timing is in HIS hands.Therefore let us not allow what appears to be unjust harden our hearts or drive us to fear. NOBODY among humanity will get away with the evil he does. The wages of sin is death, the unseen penalty is spiritual death, to be cut off from the presence of God. But this my dear sister's is the Lords concern and he will take care of things in His time. Understand that what we witness to will reveal the character of mankind without conversion.
LET US LOOK TO MARY, QUEEN OF PEACE TO LEAD HER CHILDREN OUT OF FEAR TO FOLLOW THE PATH TOWARDS GOD'S KINGDOM EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT BE PAINFUL OR CALL FOR PERSONAL SACRIFICES.
LET HER GENTLE HAND LEAD EACH OF US TO TRUE CONVERSION, SO WE CAN BE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
To Jesus through Mary-Susan Sabahi
