This Holy Week reminds me why I became a Catholic.
My mother was raised a Lutheran, and my father a Catholic. My parents had long abandoned their faith when I was born, replacing God’s grace with their unrighteous vengeance. Unfortunately, I see that exact unrighteous vengeance today in our government and the institution we depend upon.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg arrested Donald Trump during Holy Week. Did Bragg believe he was slaying MAGA Supporters’ Messiah? They support Trump, knowing he is just a man with imperfections. Not MAGA supporters, but Bragg, that believe his political leader is a Messiah.
District attorneys do not prosecute violations of the law; they prosecute the violators. Bernalillo’s former District Attorney-turned-New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez did not prosecute the shooting of one victim nor the last drive-by shooting but only charged the violation of the law with Darian Bashir’s murdered famous UNM baseball player Jackson Weller. George Soros’ DAs play god on who and who not to punish.

Democrat Leaders support the medical profession’s belief that they have the power to create males and females. Yet, despite the surgeries and chemicals, they cannot change that males have X-Y chromosomes and females have X-X chromosomes. In Mathew 19:4, Jesus answered, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female?’” Therefore, the medical profession is committing fraud upon its victims when they say, “We change your sex.”
President Obama declared that 2008 “was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.” Since then, the oceans have continued to rise despite the sacrifices of the American people and the resulting damage from environmentalist actions. Offshore wind turbines have resulted in the death of dozens of whales rotting on the New Jersey coast. Corn production for ethanol in the Midwest has washed fertilizers into the Gulf of Mexico, creating a toxic “Red Tide.” Only God could part the sea and return it to its natural level without environmental damage.
Democrats have been removing the Ten Commandments from our public spaces on the pretext that it is a religious document. They believe they are wiser, fairer, and more compassionate than God could be. But all they have done is replace God’s grace with their unrighteous vengeance.
Despite my childhood experiences, I knew God had not abandoned me. Instead, God had placed individuals in my life to guide me until I could find my way. My mother recognized that I had arrived when she told me, “We worked so hard to raise you. Then you became a Catholic”.
During these challenging times, it is essential to stay close to God.
