Nineveh Moment 22: “Maybe we don’t need a vaccine…”

One of the readings at the Masses this weekend was Hosea 6:2 where the prophet, in essence, tells the Israelites that God has, indeed, “smitten” them (read: “chastises” them), but in “two days” He will help them rebound. In the livestream Mass I was watching out of Franciscan University, the priest says that, of course, the coronavirus is a “chastisement from God.” And like the Israelites of old, we need to figure that out, repent, and collectively come back to God so He helps us spiritually heal. Part of what we need to ‘figure out,’ the priest said (among many things), is that almost every country on the planet now allows abortion. What’s more, country after country is moving toward accepting euthanasia as well. These two things, as the Catholic Church for example teaches, are totally antithetical to God’s Natural Order. Beyond these glaring spiritual wrongs, California’s Alex Gomez has ‘figured it out’ in a more generalized, yet right on the mark, way as well. He posts that we had lapsed into “worshipping”: athletes, musicians, actors, materialism… So what’s happened? Mr. Gomez notes that God has closed the sports arenas, concert halls, theaters, and is collapsing the stock market… Mr. Gomez ends with: “Maybe we don’t need a vaccine. Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and undertake a personal revival where we focus on the only thing that really matters in this world. Jesus.” Note: I’d like to think our whole campaign platform, indeed, revolves around Jesus, the things He taught, and how that applies to our contemporary world. See…
