St. Francis de Sales says: “Praise be to Jesus.”
“Mankind must desire to please God, first and foremost, in order to make righteous free-will choices. These days free will chooses to place distance between the heart of man and the Divine Will of God. This is why you have weapons of mass destruction in the hands of evil. This is why the peace and security of the world rests in the hands of just a few leaders, some of whom have only evil agendas.”
“Arm yourselves with the Truth which is Holy Love. Pray that evil is recognized and thwarted. Prayer needs to be your free-will weapon of choice. You cannot conceive of the evil that is in hearts, but you can pray for its defeat. You will receive the grace you need in every present moment. There are many ways to prepare for the future, but reliance on present-moment grace needs to be your peace and security.”
