Friends of the Rosary:

Jesus performed mighty deeds and miracles in many towns of Galilee, such as Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum, as we recently read (Mt 11:20-24). Despite so, their locals didn’t repent. Jesus was ignored, mocked, and rejected.

These offenses would end up bringing bad consequences. Not because of God’s punishment, but because those fallen cities would feel the effects of their sin.

Mind you, the Eternal Father is all-love and mercy, far from being vindictive and cruel. It’s simply that where and when God is rejected, sin takes control of the situation, and destruction is the consequence.

The heavens fully respect our freedom. We cannot complain when we decide to run the show without any divine grace. That applies to an individual as a person and society.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
