The AP published a report about the incredible number of natural catastrophes that hit the world in 2010. It lists a day-by-day report of disasters in 2010 compiled that runs 64 printed pages long.
I know some people won’t want to read this. But this is reality. It’s far better to have a balanced yet true notion of where we stand in regard to God than to live in denial.
Sin has consequences. Saint Augustine says that since nations, unlike individuals, don’t have souls and cannot be punished or rewarded in the afterlife, they are punished for their sins here in this world.
A passage from the AP report:
Through Nov. 30, nearly 260,000 people died in natural disasters in 2010, compared to 15,000 in 2009, according to Swiss Re. The World Health Organization, which hasn't updated its figures past Sept. 30, is just shy of 250,000. By comparison, deaths from terrorism from 1968 to 2009 were less than 115,000, according to reports by the U.S. State Department and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
What is God trying to tell us?
Living in a make believe world where all is well, is not healthy for the mind or soul. Far better is to realize that we live in God’s hand and that if we follow His Holy Law and the Fatima message, we can save many souls by educating them about the madness of today’s sinful world, and bring them to see the Truth.
Above all, we know that Our Lady will eventually win and bring a new age of great glory and splendor for the Church, as She promised at Fatima:
“Finally, My Immaculate heart will triumph.”
This is not just any victory. It is a triumph. A super victory.
Now that’s something very positive. So, let spread the good news and bring hope to others – but all in reality.
