Esther 8:12c (or E:3) Not only do they seek to do harm to our subjects; incapable of bearing such greatness, they even begin plotting against their own benefactors.
“My beloved, do you see how those corrupted by sin have distorted everything? They have exalted themselves to the detriment of all–even themselves! For the wages of sin is death. Let there be no doubt that these people will reap what they have sown, and many will suffer for it–the innocent as well as the guilty. Continue to pray, my child, for prayer is communal and will have consequences in the world as an antidote to the poison that is now everywhere.”
Lord, you are so merciful and generous. May your mercy gain new strength in these last days and may souls be converted through Mary Immaculate. Amen.
