The Churches also do good in the world.
For the poor, the destitute, the sick, and the troubled.
God understands that they are full of fear.
They will not listen.
And He will not force them.
So we wait.
Until the time is ripe.
Until then we talk about fear - fear of God, fear of Satan, fear of poverty, fear of strangers, fear of difference, fear of crime, fear of violence, fear of sex, fear of evil....
We pray that the Churches will see, overcome their fears and open their hearts to men and women and to God.
For we cannot love while we are afraid.
Once our fear is gone what is left is Love.
