Pray for the protection and support for priests.
Lk 11:14-23 “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste and house will fall against house... When a strong man fully armed guards his palace, his possessions are safe. But when one stronger than he attacks and overcomes him, he takes away the armor on which he relied and distributes the spoils. Whoever is not with Me is against Me, and whoever does not gather with Me scatters.”
Two parts of the same warning: Kingdom divided and scatters.
There is no doubt that in a lot of ways we are a country and a world divided. We must be on guard to not loose hope and to not divide. The only answer is to stand With God. Jesus dealt with people patiently and lovingly. He encouraged where needed and He chastised where needed. Correction, where needed is essential, but correction with Charity. Jesus always made the distinction between the action and the person, and we are to do the same. We are all brothers and sisters. We are to Gather. We are to Lead people to The Truth. We must do all we can to be a Kingdom United, a Kingdom that Gathers. Through prayer, we will know what God is asking of us. Today, let us resolve to be a GATHERER , to gather together the Kingdom of God.
