"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us? He that spared not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how hath he not also, with him, given us all things? Who shall accuse against the elect of God? God that justifieth. Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus that died, yea that is risen also again; who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
The sufferings you endure for Christ will be jewels in your heavenly crown.
P.S. Please continue to keep Father Johnson in your prayers. He is currently suffering his own trial, as are many other good priests, religious, and lay people.
"...Behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren." Jesus Christ the King (words to St. Peter before the passion)
P.P.S. Also, please pray very hard for the papal conclave. Pray that Mary Immaculate will visit them with her Most Holy Spouse, and put an end to the diabolical confusion!
Lord have mercy on us!
