Most Sincere Wishes

One would most sincerely wish that there was an everlasting Heaven for all of us to enjoy eternal life, and indeed there is one.

One would most sincerely wish that there were no Purgatory for us to be further purified, but apparently there is one.

One would most sincerely wish that there were no lasting Hell for anyone of us to suffer at all, but according to divine justice there is one.

As Our Heavenly Mother reminded us at Fatima (1917) that many souls were going to Hell (even with one such lost soul it is too painful to bear; and the world today is surely not becoming any better sinwise), one would most sincerely wish that we could all do something to help these poorest of the poorest individuals who are after all our brothers and sisters in Christ. Here is one little humble suggestion.

As two Holy Fathers** have reminded us essentially that the greatest sin in this century is the loss of the sense of sin (in a world ever fallen blindly into the depths of sins), one would most sincerely wish that no one would commit the sin of sacrilege against our most self-giving yet most vulnerable Saviour in Holy Communion.

One would most sincerely wish that God would give us the chance personally and formally to reconcile with Him on a frequent basis, and indeed God has given us one.

One would most sincerely wish that God would always stay with us and would provide a daily occasion for us to enter into a deeper loving union and friendship with Him, and God indeed has given us one.

One would most sincerely wish that we had a Mother in Heaven who would not cease praying for us and helping us in every way she could, and surely God has given us one.

One would most sincerely wish that everybody in the world would be well provided for in food, shelter, etc., and indeed, if we follow diligently the social teaching of the Sacred Scriptures and the Church in a spirit of cooperation and self-sacrifice, there should be one such world.

One would most sincerely wish that God would not allow anything too negative to happen to the world for our spiritual growth which some authentic Christian prophets, like the most heavenly one in Fatima, have allegedly prophesied.

As God is intimately and fully present everywhere, one would most sincerely wish that we would all begin to have a wonderful taste of the divine omnipresence. This seems quite possible to each one of us. Praise God!

*One would most sincerely wish also that there were a special pronoun in English for the divine gender [as in some languages in the world], such that we do not have to use He/His/Him/Himself for God, but apparently there is none for popular use.

**According to a well-informed priest, it was in fact Pope John-Paul II and Pope Pius XII who have essentially made this statement.

A special note: Praise God for the Y2OK. At the same time, we should perhaps also thank all those who cautioned us about this potential problem. Otherwise, the world might not have spent hundreds of billions to fix it.
