In heaven, it won’t be this way

The neighbor at the hermitage on the “Day Off” yesterday showed me the two pumpkins you see in the slideshow. I instantly thought of the gentleman you see with Pope Francis. Any one of us could have whatever difficulty, but do we see the heart, even for ourselves? That’s the question: “…even for ourselves”? Then we can love others as we love ourselves. That’s a command of our Lord by the way.

“The LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

    I feel so sorry for Pope Francis. I really believe he is the victim of false news or incomplete news. Our Lady at Fatima said ‘the pope will have much to suffer…’. I suspect he is often misquoted or incompletely quoted. Granted he is human and can make mistakes (commit sins) just like the rest of us but his compassion for the sick and his kindness still shine through. I hope that people everywhere instead of getting mad at him would say a Hail Mary for him. I’ll bet it would help him in earthly ways as much as spiritual ways.

    ‘Cause just think, if the evil one would go to all the trouble to stir up political parties and countries against each other (and this is just earthly trouble) , just imagine how much he must hate our Holy Father whose words will have eternal impact!

  3. Thanks for bringing that picture up again.
