No One Can Destroy The Temple


Burning-candles-in-the-dark-

I write this in regards to the reports of the destruction of the Church Buildings by ISIS and Radical Islam in Iraq…

The devil always tempts us to place faith in the material goods around us, including in the Church, and its an often used weapon to cause anger, and inflame rage in hearts at the destruction of “material goods”. The devil uses this so called destruction to cause more souls close to our Lord to sin deeper. Do not be alarmed by what you see. Do not worry. We know one day they will have to answer to our Lord, as we also shall. Watch your souls and pray for theirs.

Its not worth it to fall for the ISIS “Temper Tantrum”. The Vessel of God can never be destroyed. “Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”.John 2:19

When a Church Building burns by accident, arson or any other way is destroyed, over time, it is rebuilt. Material possessions are not the heart of the Faith. The heart of the Faith is our Lord. Even when you see the inflammatory rhetoric stating that Shariah will dominate the world, we can never forget the words of our Lord:

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Pray for them. ” be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”

It may be disappointing to lose the things that have been around for thousands of years but we must also remember our Lord has always been and always will be.

Someone to ponder while ISIS destroys the Churches (buildings) in Iraq. Servant of God, Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan of Vietnam. Imprisoned for 13 years in Communist Vietnam, he celebrated daily Holy Mass in his dark cell, with a single crumb of bread & a tiny drop of wine. His Altar was his hand and his shirt pocket became a tabernacle.

We become tempted by thinking that excess of “things’ makes the Faith, but less, truly is more.

Pray for their conversions.. Pray for serenity. Pray without ceasing.

Servant of God, Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan, pray for us. Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for us. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my faith and trust in You.

No one can destroy the Temple, as the Temple is our Lord.

Murder Is Murder

Is there any difference between the murder of Christians by Radical Islam in the ME, and the Murder of the Unborn through the act of Abortion everywhere else in the world?

I ask this question, not looking for an answer, but for many to ponder it. With the Prayers for Peace in the ME and the “rage” some have shown about praying for peace with Muslims, Jews and Orthodox with Pope Francis, I know this question is extremely important for everyone to ponder.

If I pass a law, stating, I can kill you because you are Christian. What makes it any different from, I can kill you because you are not born yet…. It stems from the same sin. That being murder.

2258 “Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being.”56

I understand that the most innocent are the closet to our Lord and the unborn are most definitely them. I truly believe the womb of a woman, is the extension of the Hands of God, until He gives His “gift”, to learn of Him, to do His will in this world. Until they return to Him again.

Where I am going here is with so many up in arms willing to move what they can, to kill for the sake of ending Radical Islam killing others, but wouldn’t lift a PEN to outlaw and end the mass murder through abortion in their own nation, that has taken millions more children, than all wars through history, by those not only who share OUR faith, but all faiths….

We become SO enraged at THEM, we can’t see that we are no different from THEM…

We were ALL created in the Image of God. When that “Image” becomes tarnished, we are still the same…tarnished.
