Homily Sunday 33 Apocalyptics

JESUS I AM

Perfect love casts out all fear. Do not be afraid. Do not be terrified.

Listen, folks: This is about Jesus. He’s the One. He’s still and always will be the only One. Only He is the Divine Son of God, the Way, the Truth, the Life. Only He is the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception. He always will be. Pachamamas be damned.

    Thanks, Father. I have been waiting for another of your Homilies.

    Great homily Father, thank you.
    Yes, suffering and death are really scary when there is no belief in God and His love for us. I saw that when my father was dying. There was a man in the same hospital ward who died before Dad. He was an atheist, 50 to 60 years old, and had lived a very sinful life. In his last minutes (may have been 10 minutes or half hour or more, Dad didn’t say) he could see things no-one else in the room could and was terrified, and calling for his mother. He died screaming. I figured he could see hell and someone had come for him from there. Dad’s death was just the opposite – very peaceful – even though he was far more emaciated (cancer had reduced him to skin and bone, his weight dropping to 5 stone 3 pounds) and he suffered much more bodily (lots of pain etc) than the other man.
    Dad believed what the Church taught and had unshakable trust in the Sacred Heart of Jesus all his life, no matter how bad things got, and wasn’t afraid of death when it came. He, too, could see someone in his final hour on this earth that no-one else in the room could see and he was looking at that someone as he prayed his final Rosary. He was about halfway through the third decade when his whole countenance changed. The pain was gone and he looked younger; extremely peaceful. He continued the Rosary right to the end, his lips barely moving because his strength was about gone and wasn’t able to lift the crucifix to his lips at the end. Mum lifted it for him, he kissed it and died. So very peaceful.

    My mother passed away on the night of the feast of Christ the King. She had stomach cancer and at the end she too was emaciated and could no long move. After receiving the sacrament of Extreme Unction she suddenly smiled raised her arms to heaven and sat up in bed. She remained in that position for a few minutes and then slowly settled back on her bed and died with a smile on her face.

    If you try to sit up in bed with your arms outstretched you will see that was quite an accomplishment, especially for a dying person. My mom was devoted to Our Lady. I think Our Lady escorted mom home to heaven.
