Just Desserts

I’ve learned over the years that you can’t please everyone.

It seems like a simple truism, yet I can’t believe how many people don’t understand this.

The more one tries to please everyone, the more he/she fails to please the Almighty One.

Most people learn it the hard way. It seems to me that politicians are the worst offenders. They try to please everyone, by shaping their views on law and order according to the majority opinion regardless of truth or morals. “As long as I am with the majority I can remain in power.”

Sad to say we, members of the clergy, are also guilty. To preach the gospel of tolerance and respect and love is a sacred duty. And offends no one!

But to include in our preaching the necessity of chastity, and reconciliation and Mass attendance appears for many to be too demanding!

What’s the solution?

In the political field we must become interested participants in the social battle by electing men and women, who respect moral values. Remember what Plato said: The penalty that good men pay for not being interested in politics is to be governed by men worse than themselves.

In the realm of religion; pray for good priests and Brothers and Sisters.
Remember folks, we get what we deserve!

Now that the pro-abortion, pro-sodomite ex Prime Minister of England, Tony Blaire, apparently without changing his anti-Gospel of Life positions and with the apparent approval of the Vatican (he visited the Vatican to tell them his plans) is to be accepted into the Church, where does that leave those of us who have worked so hard on the ramparts, including jail time and broken bones, of the pro-life movement?

Does the Vatican intend to stab us in the back with this action?

What about the Military Chaplain that has been saying a private Mass in his home for some time, shouldn't he be reprimanded and sent to a Monastery?

What will this do to the faith of many who witness this farce?

Please reply. Your reply may be the difference in some staying or losing the Faith.
