Scripture Verse for June 2020 and Questions:
Proverbs 20:20. “If one curses his father or his mother, his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.”
What is the difference between an expletive spoken in anger and a curse?
See Exodus 21:17 and Leviticus 20:9.
Proverbs 20:22. “Do not say, “I will repay evil!” Wait for the Lord, who will help you.”
In Paragraph 2302 (see below) the Catechism of the Catholic Church describes “anger as a desire for revenge.” Why does Jesus teach that anyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to Divine Judgment? (See Mt. 5:22)
CCC 2302: By recalling the commandment, “You shall not kill,” our Lord asked for peace of heart and denounced murderous anger and hatred as immoral.
Anger is a desire for revenge, “To desire vengeance in order to do evil to someone who should be punished is illicit,” but it is praiseworthy to impose restitution “to correct vices and maintain justice.” If anger reaches the point of a deliberate desire to kill or seriously wound a neighbor, it is gravely against charity; it is a mortal sin. The Lord says, “Everyone who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment.”
If vengeance belongs to God, who will repay? (See Romans 12:19)
Respect Life Prayer
We see life cheapened every day through abortion and other forms of abuse, through terrorism, and other acts of violence, and through neglect of children, the poor, and the elderly.
In a world of plenty, we can forget that there is nothing more precious than human life.
Give us the grace to see how we can make a difference, and encourage change in our culture.
Inspire us with the stories of Mary and other mothers of unexpected pregnancies, who knew that every child is a gift of God's grace and is wanted by you in this world.
Encourage conviction in the hearts of those who do not yet know or understand that a desire for choice is no reason to end any life and that you desire that all life come only to a natural end in you.

Reflection for April 2020
We are living in unprecedented times. At this time of being separated from one another and from the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist it should kindle in our hearts a yearning and desire to be once again united to Christ in the sacrament. There have been prayers worldwide for the healing of our world and I hope you have had the opportunity to join in and continue to pray for all of humanity. If you have ever watched the mass on EWTN you have probably heard the Spiritual Communion Prayer. This prayer can be of some comfort:
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
