11th Promise of the Sacred Heart of Jesus: Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart.
Mt 6:24-34 Jesus said to His disciples: “No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
We cannot be OF the world and be OF God.
We cannot PROMOTE the ways of the world and PROMOTE God.
It is impossible. They are in conflict with each other.
Trying to PLEASE friends, family and neighbor and trying to PLEASE God does not work. Ultimately, ONE WILL PREVAIL. Jesus is THE way, THE truth and THE life.
Jesus is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth and the ONLY life. Let us ask God for the courage and the perseverance to CHOOSE HIM. To CHOOSE TO SERVE ONLY HIM.
St. Paulinus of Nola, pray for us.
