First reading at Mass yesterday...

Jer 23:1-6

Woe to the shepherds
who mislead and scatter the flock of my pasture,
says the LORD.
Therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel,
against the shepherds who shepherd my people:
You have scattered my sheep and driven them away.
You have not cared for them,
but I will take care to punish your evil deeds.
I myself will gather the remnant of my flock
from all the lands to which I have driven them
and bring them back to their meadow;
there they shall increase and multiply.
I will appoint shepherds for them who will shepherd them
so that they need no longer fear and tremble;
and none shall be missing, says the LORD.

Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD,
when I will raise up a righteous shoot to David;
as king he shall reign and govern wisely,
he shall do what is just and right in the land.
In his days Judah shall be saved,
Israel shall dwell in security.
This is the name they give him:
"The LORD our justice."

A priest I know, a "Marian priest" mind you, posted
on his FaceBook that he couldn't vote in the last election
but will next time saying, "I will vote for Obama again. PERIOD!"

As you can imagine, I was crushed, very sad, and even angry
so I wrote a couple of comments in response. How it must again
pierce the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We must
pray for our priests, under such out and out attack. I shudder
to think of the messages of Fatima, when Our Lady showed Hell
to the three children seers and how the walls of hell are lined
with priests and nuns!! Also, the image of Our Lady of La Sallette
keeps coming into my mind...the only image of our Mother shown
seated, with her head in her hands weeping. Heart breaking.

Please pray for Fr. O. as led.

Thank you.
