You are much more astute than I, Roystan. Thanks for sharing that!!!

I don't have a cat, but I am sure the priest will give me my due this Saturday when I go in for confession.

A very good homily. Take heed to what our Holy Father is telling us. He is preparing us for what is happening in this world and what is to come.

So the source of all evil wants us to be happy and peaceful, and those in hell are really on a beach in Miami, sipping drinks out of coconuts with little umbrellas sticking out...

That was a reply to a previous post.

Let's be careful about talk of end times. I'll bet my cat that the end of your life will come before the end of the world, and no one knows when they will die. That should be a much greater impetus to keeping the faith.

After hearing a lot of lay people (mostly "born again" Protestants), I found that the unfortunate thing about focusing on end times is that people tend to fill their hearts with worry and forget the love of Jesus Christ.

There you go. I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. (I don't think I ever read the manual for my VCR either.)

It may indeed refer to the secularist proposed "end of history," their attempt to create an end of times on Earth. However, without reading the paragraph myself, I can't answer for sure.

Indeed. Well said! Your cat has a good steward, as we have an awesome Lord.
