Why cling to dead idols that bring death, when the living God offers you everything?

2 Corinthians 6:16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God.

“Beloved, in every place the temple of the Lord is profaned with idolatry. My very children who bear my name run to the gods of the age. This is abomination! I will spit them out of my mouth! Let all who have ears hear–the Lord is God and he alone. To him alone belongs the glory and the power and the majesty. My beloved children, you at least try to console me with your prayers and sacrifices. You at least return my love. I tell you, this has had an effect on the punishment due to sin. My children, why is love spurned? Why trade a heart that sings for a stone? Why cling to dead idols that bring death, when the living God offers you everything? The evil one has duped many, but his time is almost up. Give me all you can, dear ones. My heart longs to enfold even the most hardened sinners. Do not let them spurn my mercy, for my justice will be impossible for them to bear. Pray! So many are in such great need.”

Jesus I trust in you to grant the grace of conversion to all those you have given me to pray for. Let even the most hardened sinners repent in their final hour or at the illumination—the great act of mercy. O Jesus, we praise your great mercy and we place all our trust in you. Amen.
