This Week's Thoughts:
The Number of Our Sins
"Because the Lord does not instantly punish sinners, but waits for them, they are encouraged to offend Him the more. It is necessary to understand that, though God waits and bears, He does not wait and bear forever. It is in the opinion of many fathers -- of St. Basil, St. Jerome, St. Ambrose, St. Cyril of Alexandria, St. John Chrysostrom, St. Augustine and others -- that as God (according to the words of Scripture, Wisdom 11:20, "Thou hast ordered all things in measure, and number and weight) has fixed for each the number of his days, the degrees of health and talent which He will give to him, so He has also determined the number of sins that He will pardon; and when this number is completed, He will pardon no more.1
"Sinners keep no account of their sins; but God keeps an account of them, that when the harvest is ripe, that is, when the number of sins is completed, He may take vengeance on them."2
- St. Alphonsus de Liguori
Doctor of the Church
Preparation for Death. Page 182.
Do not listen to worldings (the world's "successful") rather listen to the Saints who successfully, faithfully lived for God! Today is the day of salvation! (2 Corinthians 6:2)
"The Lord glories in showing mercy and granting pardon to sinners... And how long does He defer pardon? Not an instant: He grants it immediately!"3 So, accept God's offer of mercy today!

Click on About Jesus, Our Lord, to learn who Jesus is in relation to us.
Click on About Our Blessed Mother, Mary, to learn who Mary is in relation to us (by the way, Catholics do not worship Mary, we simply esteem her as the greatest disciple. We view her the way our society views an Olympic champion -- with great respect. Hence we give her hyperdulia -- the greatest esteem or veneration one can give to a human being. We do not give her "latria" or adoration. That alone belongs to God: the Holy Trinity -- Father, Son--Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit).
