Fear the Lord; do not kill the innocent and unprotected

Fear the Lord; do not kill the innocent and unprotected
My sad and dreary thoughts and contemplations began before the holiday of the birth of our Most Holy and Cherished Mother of God; Holy Mary. The words “giving birth” began swirling within the depth of my soul and have me partaking in the fates of those dear and known to me, and to the people ...

There is but a step between me and death

There is but a step between me and death
It is not easy to think about death and even worse to write about it, but there comes a time for both the one and the other. In view of the fact that even one of his parishioners is like the ostrich sticking his head in the sand, when death is in question, a priest ...

Come on time to church

Come on time to church
In a wide variety of published works of our church, a number of booklets came out recently containing the instructions on how to behave in a church, the house of God. But I want to focus on how to behave before we come to this Holy temple; and what we need to do to make ...

The Will Of God: Lawful Marriage

The Will Of God: Lawful Marriage
There will be a word about homosexuals, or whatever they are called, and for many reasons. All of the media outlets, for years now and consistently, as if this world does not consist of any normal persons, but only this small group of individuals, and if all other important world issues have been solved, homosexual themes are ever so present, ...

Lord Jesus Christ’s Judgement Day

Lord Jesus Christ’s Judgement Day
We customarily describe this day as “terrible court/judgement”.
