“Heaven and Hell are locked in mortal combat and the earth shakes from the shock of the encounter; but no one feels it, no one sees it, no one hears it… no one cares! The salvation of my soul is the most imperative and most urgent objective of my life on earth. It is the greatest and grandest occupation that I can engage in. In fact, I am here for no other purpose.”
Yet, how little attention it is given in the world. As one wise man puts it, “For a small reward people will undertake long journeys, but for life everlasting they will scarcely lift their feet from the ground.”
Even more so, the precious Savior of the world dwells in all the sacred tabernacles in all the Catholic Churches in the world yet people won’t stay with Him for a few seconds. Yet they’ll wait hours, sleeping outside in the middle of the night to obtain another iphone. The Immortal King of the Ages is present in this world, but few make an effort to think of Him, let alone speak to Him and visit Him. Why is that?
“The fool said in his heart: There is no God.”(Psalm 52:1) Yet, even the fool knows that this is not true, because the law of love is written on his heart. How can one say that there is no God if His law is written on our hearts? Because modern society, the modern world, and modern man has been thoroughly brainwashed, deceived, and manipulated. Modern man has been told the lie that the everlasting God, Creator of life and of the universe, does not exist and even that a finite universe created itself. Modern man has been told that in relation to his origin in regards to the natural world, his origin comes not from Adam and Eve, but from “uncreated” natural life. Indeed, the human person, with a soul, will, and intellect greater than any other created creature, is consistently referred to in corrupted science as an animal, an ape even. Modern man has been told the lie that religion is opium for the masses, that only unintelligent, stupid, ignorant, and gullible people believe in “fairytales” as the modern man is often told. Modern man is told the lie that morality, the truth that right and wrong, good and evil exist, is relative; that truth itself is subject to the changes and circumstances that occur in life. Modern man is told the lie that the State and the Church should be separated. This is false. God should be glorified and adored not only by the Church, but by the State, in Whom the State derives their authority from. God is to be publicly and privately adored both by individuals and society at large due to His infinite sweetness; Man, both modern and ancient, is ever dependent upon God, whether He realizes it or not or acknowledges it or not. Modern man will take up any cause but God’s cause. He will listen to anyone but those who promote God’s will. Modern man will be open to the traditions of men and yet will accuse those who promote God’s law of love as promoting “the traditions of men”. Modern man has become open to anyone and anything but to God and His love. Modern man will hear everything and anything but the Truth and then people will have the audacity to complain that people are not honest with them.
Can you handle the Truth? Can you handle that there is One God in Three Divine Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created the whole world out of nothing? Can you handle that God Incarnated Himself as a Man in the Person of Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity by the Power of the Holy Spirit through the Most Holy Blessed Virgin Mary, who was a Virgin before, during, and after the Birth of Jesus? Can you handle that Jesus Christ lived on earth, suffered, was Crucified, died and was buried? Can you handle that Christ descended into Hell in order to save souls who died before His first coming onto earth? Can you handle that He rose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the God the Father Almighty, Who will come to judge the living and the dead? Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, which Christ founded, the communion of Saints, which consists of the Church Triumphant, the Church Militant, and the Church Suffering, the forgiveness of sins by Christ, specifically through His Sacrament of Divine Mercy, Confession, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting in Heaven? Even more so, can you handle that God exists? Can you handle that God knows you? Can you handle that God loves you?
For some, the last question may touch their conscience, yet it may also make one reluctant to change. But why? You are so willing to change for others. Why are you not willing to change for God, Who loves you more than you can ever imagine and who desires for you to be with Him forever in Heaven? For those who struggle with the fact that God exists and that He loves you, I highly recommend that you go to Eucharistic Adoration and spend even five minutes with the Blessed Sacrament and you’ll see for yourself, if you open your mind and heart to the Divine Lover.
