Sr Emmanuel reminds us of the evil of the coronavirus and warns us of the dangers to souls who leave the church and stop participating in the Holy Eucharist. Satan is reaping souls like never before:
Who started the coronavirus? It was Satan! Who closed the churches to the faithful? Satan! Who wants the Eucharist and the real Presence of Christ among us to disappear? It’s him! Who is trying to sow a general panic among the people? He is!
Who wants to wipe humanity off the face of the earth? It is Satan the homicide, who “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8)!
Who wants to convince man that he is abandoned by God? Satan does, ever jealous as he is of man! Who has dangled before us a civilization without God, where earthly well-being would be the ultimate happiness? Him again, the prince of lies!
And I could go on for a long time. But more than ever, the message is clear: behind these infamous trials and agonies that God’s children have to endure today, God has his plan! He alone can draw good from evil, and He is already doing so.
Dear brothers and sisters, this tragedy that is affecting the whole world is not the final word, it will pass away! It is up to us though to keep watch and to ensure that it is shortened.
We have the simplest and most awesome instruction, taught by the Blessed Mother with so much patience for almost 39 years in Medjugorje. Here we find all the answers for our current situation! Where does evil come from? How to fight it and how to defeat it? How to turn our Way of the Cross into a path of joy? We know that by uniting our sufferings to those of Jesus in his Passion, these sufferings become the cause of great blessings.
They then become co-redemptive sufferings, in the footsteps of Mary’s sufferings, as she is the co-redemptrix par excellence. The ball is in our court, much of what is going to happen is up to us.
