Politics! You Reap What You Sow.

My Dear People,

When the Jewish nation in the Old Testament insisted that they have a king reign over them instead of a judge, God allowed them their hearts desire. And so came along many corrupt and evil kings who brought down sorrow and condemnation upon them. When we ignore the law of God in our own country, and elect corrupt and evil leaders in Washington, we can expect the same result.

We have not even begun to see the bad fruit of our evil choices as a nation. Unfortunately, the "good" will suffer and well as the bad. Jeremiah reminded us in the first reading last Sunday. "Woe to the shepherds who mislead and scatter the flock." This applies not only to the Church, but also to government and civil leaders as well. God will allow the consequences of our immoral and evil choice to overcome us. Maybe then as a nation, we might finally repent before it is too late. Pray for the corruption and evil to come to an end in our changing government. We might just wake up one day and ask ourselves, just where and when did this all change? Pray, pray, pray for the conversion of our nation to return to God and His Divine Law!

May we gladly give our gifts over to the Lord, knowing that just as He did with the loaves and fishes. He can multiply our humble offerings for the benefit of many.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark
