Random Thoughts

Random Thought 1:Societal priorities: all churches are closed and locked while the bars and marijuana stores are open for business. Lord Jesus, there are those of us that know YOU are the way, the truth and the life; we follow you.


Random Thoughts 2:Flu causes 10,000 to 20,000 people to die every year in the U.S. even though we have vaccines for them Covid-19 has caused 2000 deaths so far, while paralyzing our nation’s economy and health industry —- I don’t get it.


Random Thought 3:Congress is trying to send money by the trillions to all the working people of the country because they are all out of a job. However, we are daily bombarded with pleas from politicians, national charities, TV stations, radio shows, and our churches for donations. I don’t get it, if the govt. has to send out trillions of dollars to keep families afloat, how are we expected to support all these charities and politicians no less our church.


Random Thought 4:Last time I checked the national debt was about 24 Trillion dollars, which is a number that is difficult to comprehend. A trillion is a thousand billion, a billion is a thousand million and so on. Where are we going to get this money? I constantly go back to my opening prayer: Lord Jesus have mercy on us, sinners that we are. For you are the way, the truth, and the life.


Random Thought 5: God blessPope Francisfor his beautiful message and hisUrbiet Orbi blessing with a Plenary Indulgence for those participating. The Lord’s presence was surely there whether televised or not.
