In Defense of Mother Church

Death was walking toward a city one morning and a man asked, “What are you going to do?”
 
“I’m going to take 100 people,” Death replied.
 
“That’s horrible!” the man said.
 
“That’s the way it is,” Death said. “That’s what I do.”
 
The man hurried to warn everyone he could about Death’s plan.
 
As evening fell, he met Death again. “You told me you were going to take 100 people,” the man said. “Why did 1,000 die?”
 
“I kept my word,” Death responded. “I only took 100 people. Worry took the others.”
 
This interesting tale portrays so well what the US National Mental Health Committee reported a few years ago - half of all the people in America’s hospital beds are constant worriers. Mental distress can lead to migraine headaches, arthritis, heart trouble, cystitis, colitis, backaches, ulcers, depression, digestive disorders and yes, even death. the mental fatigue of nights without sleep and days without peace, then we get a glimpse of the havoc worry plays in destroying the quality and quantity of life.
 
Worry is, and always will be, a fatal disease of the heart, for its beginning signals the end of faith.
 
Release the regrets of yesterday, refuse the fears of tomorrow and receive instead, the peace of today.
 
Free your mind and you will be glad you did.
 
 
 
PRAYER FOR ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Dear God, the heaviness of the world weighs on me and while I know You are in charge and You have my best interests at heart, I am struggling. My worries and the worries of the world crush me and bear me to the ground. O Lord, help me understand that You are the one holding me up, and that You will prevail against this darkness in me. Deliver me from the Valley of Death. Your love can heal all and I ask that you lift me from this pit of despair and surround me in Your incredible love and light. Let me see You in everything, Lord, that I may rise above this, in Your arms, and serve You. In Your Name, Amen.

“They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion.”
