I’ve got to admit I am feeling pretty discouraged today. Went through the motions of going to mass. I definitely needed a hug from Jesus.
Got very disturbed about the barrels of unborn babies found in Russia. All I could keep thinking of is “Lord, have mercy on us.” Looking at their little bodies, I just kept thinking, how can anyone think this is okay.
Got angry at President Obama and his continuous insistence that abortion is a women’s health issue and he “has two daughters”. My heart aches for those daughters, whose father thinks access to abortion is a health decision and a good thing for them.
Lastly, I am sick of hearing about people I love reading “Fifty Shades o f Gray”. It saddens me that they cannot see how harmful it is to them and to their marriages. That loving someone because of the sex is totally selfish, and really not love at all, but loving sex because of the person is true self giving love. I wish they would all spend as much time reading about self giving true sexuality in marriage.
In the end, I got my hug in the Blessed Sacrament. In spite of my feelings I know He is in charge and that good will come ,even from all of this.
Maybe people in Russia and the world will be converted by seeing those poor babies. Maybe Obama will learn how terrible abortion is, if, God forbid, one of his daughters actually has one and suffers, and maybe people will turn back to God after they see how pornography does not enhance marriage, but destroys it in the end.
In the end I know that I need to do a lot of praying, act where I can, be sure to look at all the good, and keep my eyes on and trust in Jesus, who even when I cannot see or feel discourage is working for our good.
