Mercy and Madness

The Church dedicates the month of June to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Following, as it does, the month dedicated to Our Lady, we are placed securely between the immaculate heart of the Mother and the merciful heart of her Son, our Savior. It's a safe and secure place to be.

Our President also made the month of June special. He proclaimed it "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month" to coincide with the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots the violent homosexual demonstrations in New York often seen as the beginning of the "gay rights" movement. As it began so it continues.

Jesus gave those devoted to His Sacred Heart twelve promises through his intermediary, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. These are the first four:

"I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

"I will give peace in their families and will unite families that are divided.

"I will console them in all their troubles.

"I will be their refuge during life and above all in death."

When I read these, I hardly need to read the other eight to embrace this devotion. Peace in my family? Consolation in all the pains of life? The assurance of God's refuge when I'm dying? Thanks be to God!

Obama also made promises - to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act that protects marriage between one man and one woman and to eliminate "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" as a policy for hiring in the military. Promoting the gay agenda, hell on earth, is a priority for him.

Promises: twelve for heaven and two for hell. The choice seems obvious.
