All We Need is Love

          "And a little child shall lead them." Those words from Isaias 11:6 remind us why our Lord said, "Suffer the little children to come unto Me" for in the maddening mass of adult "experts" (whose misdirection mostly takes us further away from the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts), it takes the wisdom of a child to remind us that there is hope for the future on this two-thousand and seventh anniversary of the Birth of the Infant Savior by doing what the Apostle Paul entreats us to do in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14: to "stand firm; and hold the traditions which you have learned."

          Love begs for this. Love, the Son of God Himself, came into the world for us. Love gave us His Most Blessed Mother, daughter of the Father, Spouse of the Holy Ghost. Love gave every last drop of His Most Precious Blood for us. Love gave us the formula to fulfill His holy Will in the one true Faith He established upon the Rock of Peter.

          Love gave us His perpetual gift of His everlasting Sacrifice re-presented daily, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in an unbloody manner on the holy altars of His catacomb Church through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as Pope St. Pius V set in stone so many years ago in codifying the infallible, dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent on the Immemorial Mass of Tradition: the Apostolic Mass of All Ages that it be said "in perpetuity" by truly consecrated priests in which we assist in adoration, repentance, thanksgiving and petition. That is our finite way of showing love for Infinite Love.

          Love expects us to love, not only our neighbors, but our enemy as well, not by condoning them in their errors and sins, but in loving them enough to want them to share Heaven with the Everlasting Love Who is the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - and the first lady of Heaven and earth: Mary our Immaculate Queen.

          We do so by living our Faith, performing the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, offering our Rosaries daily for the Church Suffering and calling upon the Church Triumphant to intercede for the Church Militant to persevere on the narrow, but sure path to Heaven.

          That is also why our apostolate of SANCTUS has always been a labor of Love. On behalf of all at The Daily Catholic, we send our heartfelt prayers and hopes that you will have a blessed Christmas and a grace-filled New Year basking in His Love.
