SIMPLY SHEEN: Without God's truths we are haunted!

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Christian truths, when they are rejected and denied, have a way of coming back like ghosts to haunt us. Take for example the notion of hell. After having denied it on the outside, hell moved to the inside, as modern man battles with the specters and ghosts and devils in his subconscious mind."

"I solemnly tell you, little ones of My Most Sacred Heart, that if you are truly humble, little children as I created you to be, then many chastisements shall be mitigated in the name of Divine Mercy, and upon all the world My Divine Mercy shall overflow, sealing My faithful remnant in My Most Precious Blood."

      Those words above come from Our Lord in Message #590 on the Feast of Saint Jerome Emiliani on February 8, 1995 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in which Jesus reiterates the need to ask for His Mercy for satan will hold nothing back in the assault on souls, turning many against each other through half truths. Jesus reaffirms that much of the chastisement will be mitigated and His Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart will triumph and the face of the earth be renewed if we but ask for His Mercy and live in the Divine Will. The Blessed Virgin Mary prefaces her Divine Son's words four days earlier on February 4th with the assurance of all Jesus says and calls on all her children to receive Him in the Holy Eucharist and remain loyal to Him and His Church.

When we fail to forgive and forget we can get zapped into being pathetic pachyderms!

    In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto addresses the fact that we all experience injustices sometimes in life and we need to understand why God allows transgressions against us. When we comprehend the Divine Will in all of this it makes it much easier to forgive and pray for those who trespass against us. She acknowledges that we don't have to forget for forgetting is often the most difficult thing to do. But if we don't forgive and forget we basically become pathetic pachyderms trudging through life carrying that extra baggage on our backs and our trunks dragging!
