I’ve noticed that when I Google the words Catholic Church Scandals 6,600 global monthly searches pop up. And yet, when I Google the words Protestant Church Scandals only 46 global monthly searches pop up. Jewish Synagogue Scandals gets 0 (zero) searches, and Muslim Mosque Scandals is also 0 (zero.) I never really stopped to think (until now) about the fact that the Catholic Church scandals are really the only scandals we hear about in anything religion-based. I mean, I suppose there must be other scandals involving other religions, but it’s so weird to me that the Catholic Church scandals are the only ones with an astronomical Google search count.

Yesterday I had to have one of my cats put to sleep. I had found out back in February that she had a mass in her abdomen and that there was the option of spending $7,000 for surgery to have it removed or leaving it alone and administering various herbs and supplements in the hopes of shrinking and/or healing it. I chose the herb and supplement option, but unfortunately, the mass continued to spread. Over the past several days my cat had seemed to be losing energy and appetite, and a couple of days ago I came to the sad conclusion that the only humane thing to do would be to put her out of her misery. I have a final memory of her in the vet’s examination room as the technician held her in her arms so that I could say goodbye while she was still alive vs. having to sit in on the euthanasia procedure.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from someone who has been dealing with some sort of demonic harassment in her home that is targeting the whole family. At her request I promised to block her identity and the identity of the people and places that she referenced in the email. Other than those minor changes, below is the copied and pasted email from this person exactly as she wrote it (including the title.) She was very happy to know that it was to be posted on this blog and has asked for our prayers.

Today there are three prayer requests, the first of which is from Father Brent. Please keep in mind that the Divine Mercy Novena started on Good Friday and ends the day before Divine Mercy Sunday, which this year falls on April 15th. Father Brent asks for prayers, including prayers for financial blessings for his ministry and parish school. We should remember that yesterday’s Divine Mercy intention was for “the souls of priests and religious.”
Happy Easter to all of you and to your families and loved ones. May the peace of Christ and the protection of Mary surround you and keep you safe, healthy and happy. And thank you for your continued interest and interaction on this blog because of your love for Mary and the treasures of the Holy Rosary. Thanks for helping to heal the world one bead at a time.
