The troubling thing many catholics don't realise is how much God loves the world... And if we truly believe in the 4 last things, we would understand why things happen as they do.
To disregard a pandemic as just nature... is in a way disregarding God.
God wants the world to turn to Him. Not because He needs us, because the world will be lost without God.
God wants to save the world... and it is sad that many Catholics believe that their non Catholic friends and neighbours, don't need to be Catholics.
Worst is when shepherds don't believe this, or don't have the zeal of charity to share the Good News, so that others may share it also... Will it be back to business as normal?
The absolute worst thing that could ever happen in this world, is not turning to Christ.
For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16
Al: Catholic, learning and thankful.
