This Week's Thought:
On the Abuse of Divine Mercy
"God is merciful, but he is also just...St. Augustine says that the devil deludes men in two ways, by despair and hope. After the sinner has offended God, the enemy, by placing before his eyes the terror of divine justice, tempts him to despair; but before he sins, the devil encourages him to sin with the hope of divine mercy. Hence, the saint gives to all the following advice: 'After sin, hope for mercy; before sin, fear justice.' He who abuses God's mercy to offend Him, is undeserving of mercy. God shows mercy to those who fear Him, but not to those who avail themselves of His mercy to banish the fear of God from their hearts. Abulensis says that he who offends justice may have recourse to mercy; but to whom can he have recourse, who offends mercy itself?"

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).
