(A piece from Dan Lynch apostolates)
By Dan Lynch
In the light of the recent satanically inspired slaughters of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge; the hundreds killed or wounded by a Militant Muslim Jihadist terrorist in Nice; the failed coup against the increasingly Islamist regime in Turkey; and the ongoing Militant Muslim Jihadist attacks; we should remember that Jesus has told us, “Let not your heart be troubled.” (John 14:1). “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33).

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (see 1 John 3:8), so we should not be fixated on the media reports of these evils. They should inspire our hearts to open in prayer and fasting for the victims and their families and not lead us to craven fear for our own safety. Jesus told us, “Fear is useless; what is needed is trust.”( Luke 8:50). We should not fear the works of the devil or chastisements that God may allow, but pray for their aversion or mitigation and the grace to endure them. We should embrace the devotion to Jesus King of All Nations and focus our hope on the promise of Our Lady of Fatima for The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and a New Era of Peace. “There is hope for your future, says the Lord.” (Jeremiah 31:17). However, Jesus King of All Nations told us:
Violence, wars and hatred will grow yet greater until finally mankind will bring upon himself a great punishment, then will follow the chastisement that will fall directly from Heaven. Heed my warnings oh my people. Turn from your sinful ways at last before it is truly too late. Embrace My devotion of Jesus, King of all Nations for it is a great Mercy given by your God for these most perilous times. Contained within it are gems of all-manner of grace given through the mediation of My Immaculate Mother. Graces of forgiveness, healing and renewal of minds and hearts. Why are my people not taking advantage of this gift of Mine? Yours is the choice. I leave you free to accept or reject both My admonition and My gift. (Journal 375, 376 379).
So let us accept both His admonition and His gift. Please click here to learn How to Practice the Devotion to Jesus King of All Nations. Click here to pray the Litany for the Healing of Our Land. During the summer months our donations fall as families take well-deserved vacations. However, our work continues and we still need your help! In our Summer Campaign we must raise $130,000 by the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29. This is just for our normal quarterly operating expenses of maintaining our Apostolates’ Center and paying our modest salaries. There is no surplus in our budget, which does not include any special projects, needs, or savings. Our needs are basic, bare-boned and very real. We truly need your help. Please help us.
