All are God's children from the very beginning! For how can one even exist if he refuse to face the source of his existence? Yes, whether one is a believer or not, one can't deny that he comes from God. From where else? Some will say, from the big mass of heavenly bodies that explodes. Well, opinions could be respected but not necessarily accepted. God is the source of everything, from the tiniest atom to the biggest heavenly bodies.
"I saw, I exist, I believe." On the other hand, God gave all of us a gift of free will. God is the Creator, but He does not force anyone to believe. In His love, He sent prophets first, then His Only Begotten Son, Jesus, then Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Michael and all of the Angels and saints to help us to be aware of the great mercy and love of God. God has formed the Church, where we could grow in communion with Him. If that is not enough for us to be enlightened, what could be?
All are God's children, but it is up to us to accept God's grace of Jesus to save us from eternal damnation. This is not a light matter but a serious one. Imagine yourself in the future! Do you like to be in eternal bliss with God or eternally separated from Him?
The choice is ours! Be vigilant! Act now for our lives on earth are short; we do not know how long for God determines the time of bidding goodbye to earthly life. God's mercy is here for us, no matter who we are, God will forgive us. Let us come back to Him for nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus! God is always waiting for us!
Dear Lord, we pray for this world you gave us. We pray for all nations, that all will come into terms of who you are! That those working in your service, by your Grace and Mercy will be given strength.
We pray for your Vicar here on earth, Pope Francis that your grace in the Holy Spirit will continually fortify him and please protect him all the days of his life. We pray for all the priests, the nuns, the religious, all religious lay leaders, all political leaders of countries in the world and all of the faithful that they may be given the fire of your love in their hearts to proclaim Jesus as the light of the world. We pray for the stray and lost souls that they may realise how much you love them and may they be aware of your mercy and forgiveness ready for them. We pray for souls of purgatory that they may be released from their suffering according to Thine will. We pray for the stability of families, the backbone of society, that they may find consolation in the peace that Thee can only give. We make this prayer through the powerful intercession of Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Michael the Archangel, all of the Angels and saints. All of these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
