See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

One hair of your head...


"Even if you were in the vestibule of hell, and if there remained outside but one hair of your head, that would be sufficient for me to drag you from the claws of the devil and transport you to heaven." -St. Joseph Cafasso speaking to a death row inmate who doubted whether with his many crimes he could be saved. (Thanks to Magnificat.)

    I was reminded of the Divine Mercy, too. There are similar assurances of God's overwhelming mercy in St. Faustina's diary.

  3. May it be so!
    It's so confusing and evil today...I can't believe that God would condemn half, maybe three-quarters of the "invincibly" ignorant...however, there is a group that better shape up, or they'll have a real "reckoning" one day (usually Catholic bishops, priests, and consecrated!...oh yeah! I'm very lenient with the laity but very stern with those who have been given much and from whom MUCH is expected...I do believe Jesus, our Lord, actually said this!:<)!).
