For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
Amid chaos and confusion in the Church and the World, faithful Catholics seek the truth.
Our hope is in Jesus Christ. Our belief in His reality gives us a rock-solid faith so deep and so secure that the craziness of these current times can’t uproot it. Sometimes it seems as if unseen but genuine forces trap us. Jesus says, “If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) And so we are! When it comes to our personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus, nothing created can separate us from His love.
The ongoing upheavals in the Church, politically, and with Covid-19 bring a new appreciation for a quote I recently heard spoken by one of America’s Founding Fathers, President John Adams:
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations,
or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
This blog was initially begun in the summer of 2018 when the horrible sex scandal surfaced in Pennsylvania, and the “seamless garment” of the Vatican II Church began to unravel. Sadly, it seems for us pew-sitters little is done to stop the assault on the Church’s moral compass, but each of us can be encouraged by knowing that God sees us individually. In fact, we have only to take a few minutes and the evidence in Psalm 139 to find out God’s thoughts are full of us.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You. ~Psalm 139:17-18
