On a Age Coming Soon

July 17, 2011

I will be using the first part of tomorrow’s Gospel reading on this: 

Gospel Mt 13:24-43  This was also written last night too.
“Jesus proposed another parable to the crowds, saying:
“The kingdom of heaven may be likened
to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
While everyone was asleep his enemy came
and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off.
When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well.
The slaves of the householder came to him and said,
‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field?
Where have the weeds come from?’
He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’
His slaves said to him,
‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’
He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds
you might uproot the wheat along with them.
Let them grow together until harvest;
then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters,
“First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning;
but gather the wheat into my barn.”
My dear friends in Christ,
This passage has a lot to do with the Rule of St. Benedict; because he tells us to prepare for death and always keep judgment before our eyes; because we do not know when Jesus will come and when He does, we will be judged and sent to where our hearts desire most; for now Purgatory is still there; but at the end; only two places will remain: Heaven and hell. 
We know the one who sows the field is the Son of Man and the seeds is the Word of God and the field is the world; but then there are those in the world who are the weeds; the children of the evil one.  A type of person who has made up his or her heart to desire hell and to take people with them.  These are the people who plant the bad seed which turns into weeds.
When you plant and weeds grow right with the good crop; you never pull out the weeds; because you may pull out the crop.  Those who harvest the field and seperate the good crop from the weeds or dead crop because of the weeds; they are the Angels and they will seperate us out like this: goat from the sheep.  Instead of a normal fire to get rid of the dead crop and weeds; they will put those who are dead and weeds into the eternal flames of hell for all eternity and those who are good crop and who heard the Word of God and made their house on solid Rock; Jesus; they will be put with the good crop to be taken to Heaven for all eternity.
We learn that this life is a temptation; by reading the works by Thomas A Kempis; how do we not fold from the tempting that is given by the children of the evil one?  Using the Sacrament of Confession, receiving Our Lord’s Body and Blood free from all sin and receiving it devoutly.  Praying the Rosary daily; giving your entire heart and self to Jesus is how. 
We do these good and holy things and we are giving our entire self over to Christ to be transformed into His image; only by His grace and help; we can resist the temptations and vanities of this world.  Our hearts truly must be transformed into His Sacred Heart; because our heart is restless until it rests in Thee as St. Augustine put in the beginning of his Confession. 
We must stay away from bad places, people who lead us into sin, bad movies, bad books, bad magazines, bad tv shows, anything that will lead us into sin; we must stay away from it and run from it as if it has a plague; which it does; eternal death. 
We must stay True to the Church and be faithful to Her and Her bride; Jesus and His vicar on earth; the Pope and the bishops and priests who are in full communion with him.  We must always be watchful for the coming attacks of the devil and the other demons.
Give all your work; your entire life to God as a spiritual sacrifice; including your pains, illnesses, good days, bad days, whatever and never stop begging for His help and mercy.  Carry the Cross of Christ wherever you go and while you are doing whatever you are doing.  Accept the pains and torements he bore while He carried it.
We all must learn true humility like a lamb, learn not lose our temper; unless it is justified as it was for Jesus in the Temple; learn patiences also; we must learn all the virtues and practice them as much as we can.  Read holy books by the saints, pray, pray, pray; read what the Pope writes or says. 
Stay near Jesus in the Eucharist and make frequent Confessions.  When you are hit by temptations are all directions and you may stumble and fall; do not be afraid to get up real quick and clean yourself up in Confession; use God’s mercy while He is still giving it; because when this Age comes to a close; God’s mercy will be no more; then it will be time for Justice in God’s way. 
I am sure we all can cheer for that; but we ourselves need to make sure we are prepared to go at death; whenever that may be or if make it to the end and see the Age come to a close; then we better be ready for something horrible; the gates of hell will open up on earth and we will see the damned come forth unwilling and the screams and howls will make us beg for mercy but it will be too late St. John Vianney says in his sermon on the Last Judgment and those who are damned will be blamming everyone around him or her; except themselves for sending their ownself to hell; yes it will be the parents fault; as well as the person who sinned; because the parents didn’t stop them from sinning under their roof and the one who sinned chose to do that.
Yes, we must be ready either for our personal judgment; when we die or the final judgment at the end of the world; no one know which will come. 
God bless
