Where's your heart???

Richard Dawkins seems to be exerting a lot of energy and staking an awful LOT on a "PROBABLY".
He stands in front of a big red bus that has a large sign which reads: "There's  probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."  Doesn't seem too bright to me to exert that much energy defending a notion that you PROBABLY believe and be willing to bet your eternal soul on it in the process. I have to wonder where these folks get their motivation.

Were they from the 'old school' and perhaps a nun smacked their knuckles with a ruler in the 50's and they've held that animosity all these years? All I know is in the 50's and 60's when teachers in general were able to discipline and parents generally went a long with it, within reason, that there were no shootings or stabbings in schools and the teen suicide rate in itself was MUCH lower. Hmmm .. perhaps prayer in schools and the 10 Commandments in public government had something to do with values and morals .. ya think?
But, I digress.

So now, Dawkins and Hitchens want to arrest the Holy Father when he steps foot in the UK after a state invitation. Absolutely friggin' amazing! Will they do this before or after they have Obama arrested for all the crimes and evils that members of congress have done as well?? Oh! My mistake, that must have been Bush's fault, right?? How far will pride, arrogance and hatred take a person? Truly it IS a poison and infectious malady unto itself! We know the Holy Father has much to suffer being the Leader of the One, True, Holy and Apostolic Church that Jesus founded .. but these times, I believe are history in the making and prophecy unfolding before our very eyes. Please ... all need to pray and do penance for Benedict XVI, that he "may not flee for fear of the wolves"! 

It seems to me that folks that vehemently dispute the existence of God have much deeper issues than they perhaps are willing to admit even to themselves. It appears that their extreme disdain for all things holy and almighty stems rather from pride, hatred and arrogance than a true philosophical factually based conclusion of which they have a shred of evidence.

These are one of the largest groups of folks that we must pray for. I believe it's their past hurts and recently constructed emotional walls that wraps them in the kind of pride that doesn't permit them to seriously consider that they might be wrong. After all .. there are literally just TWO choices. You either believe there IS a God and act accordingly, or you don't. I, for one, like to err on the side of caution.

It makes more sense to me to believe and search out the Truth and origins and live my life accordingly so that when I die and I have to face God, I can look forward to a loving and merciful Father that I have known all my life rather than be shaking in my boots and saying "OOPS" when I must face the King of kings who's going to judge me on my pride and arrogance in refusing to accept Him after being presented with the Truth.
Now those that don't believe will say to me .. "and if there IS NO GOD, then you've done it all for nothing while you could have had *FUN*" .. hmm, really??

Well .. let's see ... Is it better to believe and there BE nothing (you lived a good life and helped those you could and if you're now dead and gone, you don't even KNOW it!)
*OR* you live your life doing as you please and justifying all your actions saying there's NO GOD and then you have to FACE HIM and *try* to explain? Who's better off? What's the better choice here, folks?
We can't fool the Lord of Creation Who reads mans hearts! We may fool others and even sometimes ourselves, but we cannot fool the One that can neither lie or BE lied TO!

So here it is .. the average person will exert more energy and effort in searching out the best prices for vacation packages and other equally erroneously superficial pleasures and extravagances, than he will to find the TRUTH that is the ONLY thing that REALLY matters in life. Most live as if this is ALL THERE IS, with *eternity* being  the 'illusion'.

There are a number of people who would not think of gambling on anything for any amount of money or for any reason. Yet, they are willing to stake their eternal existence on a bet. The bet is that God will think that they are good enough to be let into His kingdom or better yet, that God doesn't even exist, so they don't even have to worry about it. These people would not even consider a speculative investment but they refuse to invest in the only endeavor that will pay an eternal reward. They refuse to exert any energy to seriously find out the TRUTH which will effect their very existence. They have heard the truth and they even know the price, but they refuse to respond.

My heart breaks for them ... please PRAY FOR CONVERSIONS, that NONE BE LOST!!!

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
