This COVID-19 virus is a horrible thing. We see hundreds of people dying everyday, some of them we know and the most tragic is if it’s a member of the family. This is the reason why as part of the Remnant Army of the Book of Truth Mission it is our duty to pray daily for the salvation of souls through the heavenly prayers given to us; the Crusade Prayers and Litanies, the Holy Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. We call it the End Time Prayers.
In spite of this tragic event surrounding us it is also a time that God pours out abundant graces. For one, this lockdown and isolation situation gives us ample time of reflection, of prayer and repentance. The ‘I’m busy’ excuse is no longer an excuse. Let’s pause and truly ask ourselves what’s important. If we still fail to reconnect ourselves to God at this time then it only means one thing — we love ourselves more than the one who created us and gave us life –God.
It’s a choice. God does not insist. He waits.
Everyday now is an opportunity to prepare. There is no better time to prepare our souls than in Lent in 2020. As it strips the freedom we once enjoyed due to COVID 19 it’s a great realisation that we can detox and truly live simple lives from unnecessary shopping, food trips, parties and holidays, but focus on the essentials, and the essentials I mean here are Family and Prayer life. Decide for holiness not sinfulness. It is the only way to heal our souls and heal our land.
As part of the Remnant Army, it’s a good time to take stock of what you have and don’t have. Do some planning. Run through the checklist and always have your armour with you wherever you go. The storm is gaining strength.
The keywords to take home are: have time for silence, prepare and live simply.
God bless you all.
