We Are Called to do More
Countless people have complaint after complaint about God's Holy Church. Truly, is any joy or divine assistance going to come from a single complaint? No. God's wonderful Church, made up of humans - imperfect as they are, is simply amazing because God is its guide.
When Jesus established the Catholic Church and Peter became the first pope, the Holy Spirit endowed great graces that would not let the Devil over power Our Lord's Church (cf. Matthew 16:18). However, even with all of that greatness, we can see some significant signs of sickness in the Church.
Today, the anti-christ has gotten ahold of everyone, the Church included and now we need to emplore Mercy in a great way to save/restore God's Church.
With immorality and the lack of charity/love enveloping all walks of life, those who have eyes can clearly see mortal sin is running out of control. Few have a true desire to live the Word of God perfectly, for a life of joy today and for all eternity. I we don't do something, "when Christ comes again will He find faith on earth" ( ).
If the world is not brought correctly to the light and we continue to live dead in our sins (not united with God), thinking bad is good, we will all die. The lost are in great need of who ever God is restoring to the Light, to go out to the people (in the Church and out of the Church) and bring God's truth, love and mercy through new evangelization to the people for the salvation of their souls.
"He who honors a priest, honors Christ, and he who insults a priest, insults Christ" (St. John Chrysostom).
Let's unite together as the mystical body of Christ and do something to cure the ills in the Church. If you have eyes to see the sickness, then God is calling you to do something to help the members of His Body.
If great change is needed, then great action needs to take place. The greatest action you can do for your church is PRAY, fast and sacrifice, with humble hearts knowing our (us and others) need for conversion. Truly, all of our complaining will merit nothing. All of the talk of doing something won't change a thing. We need to remove the talk and replace it with action. And nothing is greater than God working through us through our prayers and sacrifices. This we must believe. Then lets pray and learn how to save souls like the saints have done before us.
Let's encourage others to make a commitment to pray and sacrifice then miracles will happen... by God working through us.
When problems exist, we can write a complaint letter and express our grievances. We might even "force" someone or something to change. But honestly, did you change anyone's heart? No.
We want hearts softened, not forced to change, because no change has really occurred... if we just make someone do good. Only God changes hearts, through prayer and suffering, and most of the time it takes much time.
So we need to be patient. Therefore we need to PRAY, pray and pray. We can do this so, through the power of God, something truly good will happen. If after much prayer, fasting and sacrificing, if God wants us to speak, then with the Holy Spirit as our guide, speak.
Sometimes a letter might be necessary to encourage someone (not negative criticize, but to enlighten and encourage) to make changes, but letters of disapproval shouldn't be written without great prayer and only done through love... never anger.
Praying for Priests will give you the organization, ideas, and guidance you need to offer wonderful prayers and love to the leaders of the Church and to establish a group in your church specifically designed for praying for the priests, so God can transform lives using the greatest tool you have for change, Prayer and sacrificing.
