Because the day when she was to leave this life was drawing near – a day known to you, though we were ignorant of it – she and I happened to be alone, through (as I believe) the mysterious workings of your will.From the Confessions of St Augustinehttp://universalis.com/readings.htm
President Trump will defend the God-given right of every American to protect their homes and their families.Mark and Patty McCloskey Speech at Republican National Convention
since all of history is GOD’s mysterious initiative in bringing about “HIS story” by way of call, grace, and fidelity; is it not HIS right over HIS people to decide who will best “protect their homes and their families.”?
to you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be holy,
with all those everywhere who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
their Lord and ours.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:2-3
But more than that, Trump’s vision for America is a country where you have an opportunity to work hard and build the life you dream of.Mark and Patty McCloskey Speech at Republican National Convention
is it not the “works of GOD” not the “…life you dream of.”, that make God present and invite human praise?
R. I will praise your name for ever, Lord.
Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your might.
They speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
and tell of your wondrous works.Psalm 145
In a community where your family can play in the backyard without fear, worship in a church without shame, and express your beliefs without retribution.Mark and Patty McCloskey Speech at Republican National Convention
does GOD call us to the comforts of the suburbs, or to HIS Kingdom?
R. Alleluia, alleluia.
For you do not know when the Son of Man will come.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.MT 24:42A, 44
Trump brought us the greatest economy our country had ever seen. The Democrats have brought us nothing but destruction.Mark and Patty McCloskey Speech at Republican National Convention
since it is GOD that manages creation, is not prosperity or destruction ultimately HIS plan of salvation by way of the DIVINE economy?
“Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so.
Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.
But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is long delayed,’
and begins to beat his fellow servants,
and eat and drink with drunkards,
the servant’s master will come on an unexpected day
and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely
and assign him a place with the hypocrites,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”MT 24:42-51
