Saturday of the Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

God has called us through the Gospel,

to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

See 2 thes 2:14




38. Sadly, some “are attracted by Western culture, sometimes with unrealistic expectations that expose them to grave disappointments. Unscrupulous traffickers, frequently linked to drug cartels or arms cartels, exploit the weakness of migrants, who too often experience violence, trafficking, psychological and physical abuse and untold sufferings on their journey”.[37] Those who emigrate “experience separation from their place of origin, and often a cultural and religious uprooting as well. Fragmentation is also felt by the communities they leave behind, which lose their most vigorous and enterprising elements, and by families, especially when one or both of the parents migrates, leaving the children in the country of origin”.[38] For this reason, “there is also a need to reaffirm the right not to emigrate, that is, to remain in one’s homeland”.[39]

Why do we emigrate from the Catholic church?

progressives are becoming weary because we “are overwhelmed” experiencing separation from our place of origin while accepting from the pagans issues such as abortion, LGBTQ, BLM, women priest or being told “Biden is unacceptable“; so we pray never, and although Light shines through the darkness, we experience a religious uprooting as well…

magaists are becoming weary and accepting from the pagans unrealistic expectations as we pray always for unscrupulous politicians, clerics and religious media who exploit our weakness by attracting us with a conspiracy culture of us becoming “subject to the police power of the state“; thus exposing us to grave disappointments since “vulnerable people continue to pay the price for inaction” and no Light shines through the darkness

comfortables pray always, as the Light shines through the darkness, but we are becoming weary remaining in a church, “physically apart”, “that is only made worse by the unnecessary stress” caused by the fragmentation as we lose our most vigorous and enterprising elements who have turned to accepting from the pagans

Catholics are accepting nothing from the pagans, and as the Light shines through the darkness for the upright as a “beacon of hope“, we pray always without becoming weary so as to “reaffirm the right not to emigrate, that is, to remain in one’s homeland”, the Church!!!

Today’s Scriptures

…accepting nothing from the pagans.

3 JN 7

R. Blessed the man who fears the Lord.

Light shines through the darkness for the upright;

PS 112: 4

…pray always without becoming weary. 

LK 18: 1
