Let's not kid ourselves. Because we, as a nation, have rejected God and disobeyed His laws, particularly those laws touching upon marriage, sexuality and family life, we have incurred His wrath and are now beginning to experience the ramifications. The time is late. We need to sober up and recall the One who made us and for Whom we are made. Not only is our nation in peril but civilization in general, with many souls in danger of hell.
Some passages from Scripture (Douay-Rheims) that are most appropriate for today:
2 Chronicles 7:14 "And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land."
Joel 2:12 "Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning."
Come home to Jesus Christ in His One True Church. Go to Confession. Receive Holy Communion as often as you can (provided you are in a state of grace and have fasted properly). Pray the Rosary. Speak out when you see evil. Time is running short.
