O My Jesus . . .

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell.
Lead all souls to heaven,
especially those most in need of Thy mercy.

I was taught very forcefully about 1956 or 57 that the state of another person's soul before God is none of my business.

So for whom am I praying? Lots of people, probably, none of whom I know, need to know, or want to know.

There's only one person I know who is in needs of God's mercy, and that's me.

Sobering thought, that.

Look at V for Victory!

Go over to Anita Moore's blog V for Victory and read her piece about Bishop Blessed Clement August von Galen, who spoke out loudly and forcefully against the Nazis . . . and survived.

We need more bishops and priests like him here now.

Thanks, Anita!
