I heard an interesting parable today. I figured it would be a good idea to share it although I am sure many of you have already read it or heard it. This is not the gospel of Our Lord, nor is it from the Church. It is simply an interesting parable that may help you see things differently or at minimum provide you with some entertainment. 

 

 

 

"Once upon a time there was a woman, and she was wicked as wicked could be, and she died. And not one good deed was left behind her. The devils took her and threw her into the lake of fire. And her guardian angel stood thinking: what good deed of hers can I remember to tell God?

Then he remembered and said to God, "Once she pulled up an onion and gave it to a beggar woman."

And God answered, "Now take that same onion, hold it out to her in the lake, let her take hold of it, and pull, and if you pull her out of the lake, she can go to paradise, but if the onion breaks, she can stay where she is."

The angel ran to the woman and held out the onion to her, "Here, woman," he said, "take hold of it and I'll pull!"

And he began pulling carefully , and had almost pulled her all the way out, when other sinners in the lake saw her being pulled out and all began holding on to her so as to be pulled out with her. But the woman was wicked as wicked could be, and she began to kick them with her feet: "It's me who's getting pulled out, not you; it's my onion not yours!"

No sooner did she say it than the onion broke. And the woman fell back into the lake and is burning there to this day. And the angel wept and went away. "

Here is a very interesting and informative speech by Catholic conservative speaker Michael Knowles. He draws a paralell between liberal ideology and the 7 deadly sins.  Hopefully this gives you all additional comebacks when dealing with liberals out there in the world. We Catholics need to be able to defend ourselves and political views that mirror the values held by our Faith.

As a side note, we should all band together and have "humility month", instead of pride month. Let's all agree to try extra hard to decrease so that our lord can increase, and strive to see ourselves as we truly are, and not as our pride would have us believe. In fact, maybe we shouldn't just stop at one month, let's work on our humility for the rest of our lives.  Corinthians 9:24 says "Know you not that they that run in the race, all run indeed, but one receiveth the prize? So run that you may obtain. " The prize is salvation, and we have to run like we are trying to win the race.
