I feel compelled to post this. I think it was reading The Judgment of Gloria Polo that brought this to mind and also the fact that the world doesn't realize just how much trouble we are in spiritually. To be blunt - we are in BIG trouble. I hate to repeat myself over and over (and no doubt the readers of this blog hate it too) but I feel compelled to stress that the entire world is in a state of spiritual emergency. Many ARE aware of how intense the battle is becoming because they feel the prayer burden that God has placed upon them and they know the immense cost of a soul.
They know the suffering that must be endured bringing the souls of those in mortal sin to the Lord for healing.
The tears, the heaviness, and the pain involved. They pour themselves out night and day. They plead endlessly for others before the Mercy Seat. The thought of a soul, any soul, going to Hell pierces their heart like a sword. It's utterly unbearable to them. It doesn't matter whether they know the person or not... because they know the worth of every single person.
Enter the prayer warriors who take on the spiritual battles meant for others because they know how precious
each and every living person is in the eyes of God.
I'm writing this because the Lord is aware how great the burden is becoming for these intercessors who seek to help draw people out of the depths of the spiritual hell they are living in here on earth. I am aware that a few of the people that read this blog know precisely what I am speaking of and this post is for you.
God is with you. Our Lady is helping you. The saints, the angels, and the souls in Purgatory are helping you. Unite all your prayers with theirs and call upon them constantly. Plunge souls into the sea of God's Mercy and when you feel drained go before the Blessed Sacrament.
Pray The Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
And pray The Rosary. Our Lady is a powerful help in the area of spiritual warfare. Satan and his minions are terrified of her.
They actually dread her.
