And Then God Said....

So, in light of all the fuss surrounding the recent fall from grace of a certain well-known Catholic evangelist and my sometimes rather uncharitable comments regarding his demise, the Lord directed me to the following few lines from St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church:
Those in union with God, when aware of the sins of others, live in this gentle light... Therefore they are always peaceful and calm, and nothing can scandalize them because they have done away with what causes them to take scandal, their self-will... Even when they see something that is clearly sinful, they do not pass judgment, but rather feel a holy and genuine compassion, praying for the sinner. St. Catherine of Siena
And then God said unto me: "Please shut up!"
