Jesus taught us the definition of true love and gave us a plan of how to take care of each other, unfortunately man has turned his back on our Creators divine plan for our society and our world and has instead created his own self centered definition of love. This has resulted in an incorrect view of the Sacrament of Marriage in our society. We are now turning a Sacrament designed by God to give us special graces and a divine plan for living together in peace, harmony and spiritual growth and are turning it into a Sacrilege against God and an assault on the human family. Seems that man individually and collectively has forgotten that the primary purpose of his existence in this life is to to obtain the goal of eternal salvation.
The Holy Name of Jesus has great saving power. In Lisbon, Spain a devastating plague broke out in 1432, Bishop Monsignor Andre Dias seeing that the epidemic, far from diminishing, grew every day in intensity urged the people to call on the Holy Name of Jesus. The plague almost immediately ceased and the city was freed from from the dread sickness.
Today our plague of homosexuality and gay marriage is threatening our society. There is a Supreme Court decision looming on the horizon that has the potential to right this evil. Doing nothing is not an option. The Holy Name of Jesus is a powerful weapon, let's use it.
