St. Francis de Sales says: “Praise be to Jesus.”
“Departure from the Truth leads to dissension, such as witnessed in the politics of the day. Opposing opinions need to all return to the Truth for righteousness to be upheld.”
“Many governments and ideologies are founded on deceit and falsehood. These errors bring confusion to the overall resolution of events. To base policies and actions on untruth reinforces error and changes world events.”
“Much self-interest is the inspiration to follow untruth. This is why practicing Holy Love is so important to the future of the world. Holy Love takes the focus off of self and places it on God and neighbor. Choose to think, speak and act in the righteousness of Holy Love.”
Read Romans 10:1-4 +
Synopsis: Paul’s prayer for those who have a zeal for God that they realize their salvation comes from the righteousness of God – not self-righteousness; and that they surrender their hearts to God’s righteousness. Only through Christ can anyone who has faith be justified.
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but it is not enlightened. For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has faith may be justified.
