When Shepherds are not Saints
In these times where many as Elders have to guide the children and their children to GROW, amidst what seems to be a very disturbed WORLD, we see manifestations of evil and sickness of Mind and Body all over the planet inhabited by MAN, WOMAN and children….the Creation that comes from God.
We see how the TRUTH of the BIBLE hits once again – as the WORLD goes through many HYPOCRISIES be it in families …or then the CHURCH which was instituted to GUIDE families back to GOD…. The CATHOLIC CHURCH has MEN as PRIESTS who are called to lead themselves and the COMMUNITY of MAN, WOMAN and children, by being the SHEPHERD themselves…. to be led by JESUS – the GOOD SHEPHERD.
WHAT does the family or the WORLD do when MEN who are created strong and powerful become WEAK…..yes, weak to SUCCUMB to their SENSES and allow themselves to be led astray? The WOMEN have to wake up and SPEAK to break the deafening SINFUL SILENCE behind which lurks many a pain and anguish which is seen and known by our MAKER, but which many a Man thinks is ‘inconsequential’ or relevant to the mainstream of life. God sent JESUS to teach us to be strong and address the SINS in our midst so that the Sinners can be SAVED. SAVING starts from WORDS as did GOD speak through WORDS.
So if there are so many ABORTIONS and young babies killed, screaming for their lives in SILENCE because they cannot SPEAK – we see the TRUTH of GOD and HIS WORDS where HE sees and know the ANGUISH of the ‘SMALL’ amidst us – be they RAPED WOMEN, ABUSED children, OLD WIDOWS or the many SICK who are NEEDY, whom we as the GOOD SAMARITANS are called by JESUS as the CHOSEN ONES, to TAKE CARE and help back to LIFE…to TEACH them to FISH and SAVE their SOULS.
We see that ADAM was WEAK …and he allowed himself to dare DISOBEY GOD and instead choose to be led by his SINFUL wife. Reflect as to the reason that satan chose the Woman Eve first, for satan saw his weakness that the MAN Adam would follow the Woman..! We saw down the centuries another MAN – JOSEPH be OBEDIENT unto GOD – to take on to provide and protect a physically HELPLESS WOMAN, MARY – when SHE would be the scorn and HATE of HER COMMUNITY and families when they would LEARN that SHE was PREGNANT without having been officially MARRIED…! TRUST, FAITH and OBEDIENCE worked a Miracle.
MANY even though of the FAITH, doubted HER Character and over the centuries have DIVIDED the HOLY CHURCH….. doubting the ability of GOD to be a FATHER to a DIVINE SON – because ‘MAN’ in his pride considers himself to be the creator and author of life, be it for himself, or the WOMEN around him or then the many children be it at home or then in the community….So a MAN who considers himself a god, is satan in disguise…..like Adam or his son CAIN, who took matters into his own hands and killed his own brother Abel. Such MEN abuse women and other men or their children through submission to unrestrained EGO because an egoistic MAN is an ideal tool for satan to exploit and reign in evil.
