Pray For Your Own Salvation And For Our Nation

Yesterday's Gospel was from Luke 13:22-30, regarding the fewness of those who will be saved.  Our Lord said "strive to enter through the narrow gate for many will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough.."  Indeed, our homily discussed the dangers of presuming on God's mercy while thumbing our noses at his commands.  I'll post below this a video regarding mortal sin, hell and the 6th and 9th commandments.  Why those?  Because Our Lady of Fatima warned that sins of the flesh, that is, sins against God's commandments regarding our faculties for procreation of human life will be the leading cause of eternal damnation for souls.

Before I do so, I'd like to link to the current parish bulletin (see page 2), where Father highlights some worthy prayer efforts.  I might also add to that the 54-day Rosary novena, sponsored by Cardinal Burke.  We all know our poor nation and world need God's grace, and prayer is essential for obtaining that grace.  Such prayer will also be crucial as we ourselves seek to enter the narrow gate.
