Dear friends of Jesus,
May the love of Christ be with all of you in order for His peace to dwell wherever you go during your daily life. During the past month, some of you, your community may have been touched by swine flu, also known as H1N1. Originating in Mexico, it has quickly spread around the world, obliging many Churches to take precautions in order to stop its spread. During the past month, I added to the website a list of swine flu precautions that many parishes have adopted. You may wish to print this webpage and share it with your parish in the future if it becomes necessary. Please visit: http://www.catholicdoors.com/faq/qu219.htm.
In recent Newsletters, I have not mentioned that I no longer answer personal incoming "prayer requests." These emails are now forwarded to a priest in India who has volunteered to answer them. This excludes prayer requests that are received as a part of a mailing list. By that I mean the prayer requests that are emailed to dozen of websites. Such requests are sometimes received on a daily basis.
During the past month, under "Frequently Asked Questions," I answered a great question regarding "Being Judgmental." What is the fine line between judging others versus one's obligation to correct others in order not to sin? By saying nothing, a person can sin (1) by consenting to another person's sin, (2) by remaining silent, (3) by doing nothing to prevent someone's sin and (4) by defending someone's sin. Often when someone corrects another person, he/she is intimidated by someone who will say, "Who are you to judge?" The person who was correcting someone then walks away in silence. That kind of a response is wrong. If someone has an obligation to correct a person, then he/she must do so.
I hope you enjoy what I had to offer this past month and I pray that some of you will be able to use the material to help others in their spiritual growth. May God bless you all.
In the love of the two Hearts,
