Better Sinners

Posted by Xavier Thelakkatt on February 27, 2016 at 1:20 AM

          I was at a Thanksgiving party in the home of Janet and John. A few of their close neighbors were also invited. Among them I met Nancy, a bubbly middle aged woman. She engaged others in conversation well and was funny. I also noticed that she wore a wig. When the neighbors had left, Janet told me a bit about Nancy. She was apparently dying of terminal cancer and was on radiation therapy. She had worked as a nurse at the Planned Parenthood clinic in town for many years. “What goes around, comes around, doesn’t it?” Janet’s tone of voice indicated that Nancy deserved it. I felt sad. Now, did her actions bring it upon her? Did it happen because of her sin of helping with abortions?

           It is often a human way of thinking, rather simplistic and in some way judgmental. In fact Jesus resented it. People brought to him the news that some Galileans who revolted against the authorities under the guise of a sacrifice were brutally murdered. Jesus immediately responded, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did” (Lk 13:2-3). Can anyone claim to be a better sinner?

You are part of a search and rescue for lost Catholics.

Regular updates to the countdown to the Day of the Lord by the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven at :


What to expect in the final days :



I was guided to think, for a while, using the "1335 = 2300" methodology, explained here :


We are less than 8 days away from prophetic history : the completion of the 2300 day cleansing period of Daniel 8:14. When Jesus said to me, "Give in now, John, until it comes time to fulfill all justice", He was referencing that point in time between "this age" and "the age to come". That point in time is between December 29, 2018 A.D. and December 30, 2018 A.D. There is no changing this by human means.
