Fr. James Martin is a disaster. I honestly don't know if my anger at this priest leading people toward Hell is stronger than my pity for him. It used to just be anger I felt for what Fr. James Martin has been doing, but over the last several weeks I have been reading on a single topic: HELL.
And what is awaiting people, specifically priests in Hell is absolutely TERRIFYING.
I would love to hear Fr. Martin speak about Hell. I wish to know what his thoughts are on the subject. Who does he think goes to Hell? What does he think Hell will be like for the damned? Does Fr. James Martin worry he might be headed for Hell because he opposes the Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality and gay unions?
I'd honestly like to know.
He seems to be carefree about his opposition to the Catholic Faith. I fear for his soul. Truly I do.
"O, how great is the priest!...If he realized what he is, he would die."
-St. John Vianney-
I can't help but think, how he (and others like him) must break Our Lady's heart, because they are failing so miserably at their primary duty...saving souls for Christ.
Lord Jesus, we your people pray to You for our priests. You have given them to us for OUR needs. We pray for them in THEIR needs.Pray for Fr. James Martin and other priests. Their souls need saving too!
We know that You have made them priests in the likeness of your own priesthood. You have consecrated them, set them aside, annointed them, filled them with the Holy Spirit, appointed them to teach, to preach, to minister, to console, to forgive, and to feed us with Your Body and Blood.
Yet we know, too, that they are one with us and share our human weaknesses. We know too that they are tempted to sin and discouragement as are we, needing to be ministered to, as do we, to be consoled and forgiven, as do we. Indeed, we thank You for choosing them from among us, so that they understand us as we understand them, suffer with us and rejoice with us, worry with us and trust with us, share our beings, our lives, our faith.
We ask that You give them this day the gift You gave Your chosen ones on the way to Emmaus: Your presence in their hearts, Your holiness in their souls, Your joy in their spirits. And let them see You face to face in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread.
We pray to You, O Lord, through Mary the mother of all priests, for Your priests and for ours. Amen.
