Feast of Saints Timothy and Titus, Bishops
St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”
“While there are many threats to world peace circulated about, today, and many survival plans, this Mission has mainly to do with the most important concern of all – the salvation of souls. This Mission is the conversion of the heart of the world through Holy Love. Success is measured in the turning away from evil and the pursuit of good through Holy Love. In this Mission is Heaven’s call to turn away from all that opposes Holy Love and to pray to recognize the Truth between good and evil.”
“Beware of any false sense of security such as politicians who betray the world situation as ‘status quo’ or even improving. This is strictly a ploy to make themselves look good, but also a strengthening of the undetected enemy who is evil. You must understand that evil is very much at work in every abuse of authority and compromise of Truth. Some are so enamored with their own importance, they believe whatever they say will become the Truth. Many who follow them believe so as well. This is what induces a false sense of security and a complacency against identifying evil and fighting it. Once again, I tell you, do not be so impressed with who says what, but what they are saying.”
“Holy Love in hearts is the greatest weapon of good against evil. It is more important than any weapon of mass destruction, peace plans which man contrives, hoarding of worldly goods against future needs, or trust in world leaders who are compromised, at best. In the end, each soul has his time before God’s Judgment. This is what Holy Love prepares you for, as well as a just life in the world now.”

Of course, there is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world, so that we can take nothing out of it…

1 Timothy 6:3-10English Standard Version (ESV)
3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound[a] words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, 4 he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, 5 and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain, 7 for we brought nothing into the world, and[b] we cannot take anything out of the world. 8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
