Know the Real Enemy!

My Dear People,

God’s Mercy and Compassion is far beyond our understanding. We cannot comprehend Our Lord’s deeply rooted love for us. We would weep copiously if we ever came to know fully God’s love and His care for us. It is the awesomeness of his love that can transform our lives and become the source of our healing. The Gospel today teaches us something about God’s Divine Mercy. The parable of the workers show that we cannot fathom the depths of God’s charity. He loves the just and the unjust, the saint and the sinner alike. We however, find it very difficult to love our enemies, even within our own family.

Not recognizing who the real enemy really is keeps us in the dark. Satan is the one who seeks to separate and divide. Jesus tried teaching the Apostles this fact. The seed of the devil had been sown among them and come to sprout in Judas Iscariot. Even St. Peter denied Christ, but he also accepted Our Lord’s Mercy and forgiveness. So the key to real healing in our lives comes from embracing Divine Mercy. Plead the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ over all of your enemies. Pray for their healing and conversion. Know God’s true peace in doing so.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark Bozada

May we be merciful to God’s Mercy and Compassion.

    Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword. For I have come to set a man ‘against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one’s enemies will be those of his household. (Matt 10:34-36)

    Thank you so much Father for you’re teaching on “Knowing who the Real Enemy is”! I love how the Holy Spirit is constantly clarifying for us His love & the best is through you,our Priests! I’m printing your article to reread & share. I have already begun to pray for the Precious Blood of Jesus upon those I’ve hurt & those who have hurt me and the Moslems & Israeli’s for forgiveness, conversion & healing. I was so excited & surprised when I read about in the Old Testiment unforgiveness between Isaac and Ishmael. Yes now the anger & wars between them now makes sense & I agree & believe Sin cuts & divides people as you said Father Bozada. I never tire of reading about Jesus’ Divine Mercy. Thank you for helping us see this teaching in Matthew’s Gospel 20:1-16 Parable of the workers. Yes Jesus’ Mercy, His charity is far above ours. But through our heartfelt prayer through Our Blessed Mother, Eucharistic Adoration & asking Jesus to help us when we receive Him alive in Holy Communion, it certainly is possible. Thank you from a grateful heart. Your in my prayers,
