Missionaries of Mercy can face the most hateful cynicism of all


Here’s the deal: We can’t defend ourselves from the nay-sayers, except to say that the special faculties that we’ve been given by Pope Francis are exceptionally useful for the greater glory and honor of God. And that’s what we all want, right? The nay-sayers, it seems with incredible malice, want to bait the Missionaries into saying when and where these faculties were used, how many times, what for, and all the unrepeatable circumstances of individuals so accurately that they know who it is who rejoiced in the mercy of our Lord Jesus, as if these nay-sayers could judge He who Himself will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, including themselves.

But facing such as this is also what it means to go into the darkest of existential peripheries, rejoicing that the mercy of the Lord endures forever, and is much stronger than our own weakness, stronger than any darkness, stronger than death, strong enough to carry us by that grace which, St Paul says, will turn to glory in heaven.

What the Holy See was looking at in the stat pictured above.
