There’s no mercy for those who don’t show mercy.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

(One who commands, must obey.)
I saw water flowing from the right side of the temple, alleluia; and all they to whom that water came were saved, and they shall say, alleluia, alleluia.
Praise the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever.

May the balm of mercy reach everyone...
Do you know anyone else who talks like this? I don't. Jesus Christ never did.
Pope Francis also chose today, the feast of the Divine Mercy of Jesus to proclaim this special holy year.

I’m with Pope Francis. I think mercy is marvelous.

The Year of Mercy, Pope Francis wrote, is also a way to keep the Second Vatican Council alive. The walls which too long had made the Church a kind of fortress were torn down and the time had come to proclaim the Gospel in a new way, he said. The council recognised a responsibility to be a living sign of the Fathers love in the world.
While the Novus Ordo Mass was not supposed to turn into what it is today [at some parishes], the original rules were not strict enough to keep it in check (or whatever). Last week for five weekdays in a row, for example, ONLY Eucharistic ministers handed out Communion at our parish, because the priest said he had a cold and he didn't want to pass it to the parishioners. Imagine that?!? It's not something you'd ever see a Traditional Latin Mass priest do.

("Tell your troubles to Jesus," my wisecracking father used to say, and now I do.......at adoration.)
You put the balm on?
Who told you to put the balm on?
I didn't tell you to put the balm on.
Why'd you put the balm on?
