Justice Begins Where Mercy Ends

November 9, 2008

My Dear People,

When a Nation Murders Innocent Children

"Zeal for your House consumes Me." This is Jesus's statement after overturning the money changer's tables in the Temple. We all believe God to be a God of Divine Mercy. It is true. We don't want to believe that He is also a God of Divine Justice. Mercy and Justice go hand in hand. Justice begins where Mercy ends. In the Old Testament, God was often Merciful and Compassionate with His people. However, after allowing for a period of conversion, when not seized, He allowed the consequences of sin to reign. What Mercy did not consume, Justice did.

We are all responsible for our actions; both individually and corporately. When a nation murders innocent children in the womb, as a matter of national policy; when every form of the deadly sins runs rampant, and when God's Law is ignored and forgotten; it is then that Mercy turns to Justice. Read the Sacred Scriptures. Come to know the Lord as He is revealed to us in the Holy Bible. Pray for the conversion of all sinners. Know that the Just hand of God is near. Continue to convert your hearts and minds to Him. Repent and believe in the Good News. Jesus has taken all of our sins upon His Holy Cross. By His holy wounds we have been healed.

May we come to know the Lord of the Scriptures, in our minds and hearts.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark
