30It will be just like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31On that day, let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve his possessions. Likewise, let no one in the field return for anything he has left behind. 32Remember Lot’s wife! 33Whoever tries to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed: One will be taken and the other left. 35Two women will be grinding grain together: One will be taken and the other left.”e
It occured to me today the probable prophetic significance of this. At Mass it’s mainly a wealthy and elderly laity influencing the priest .In some cases they push the culture of fear to block others from receiving the Eucharist on the tongue from a priest. My wife and I are allowed to receive on the tongue from the priest but are told to come along at the end. ‘The last will be first’. We are not seeking to save our physical lives but nourish our souls with the blessed body of our lord Jesus. Fear should not be in the house of God. Jesus wants to feed his children as they should be fed. The wrong Catholics are first in line at the moment. They have their mortality, family legacy and money to worry about. Most covid mortalities are in the over 70s.
These fearful and influential Catholics have a similar angst that the secular apocolyptic eco protestors have. They worry about their physical death and not the soul. They worry about their genetic legacy.
Jesus was talking about the coming of the kingdom when he mentioned those who seek to save their lives will lose it.

So true I see this in our parish also, the priest and most Liaty do not put there trust in God this saddens me also.
These ones also care more what men thinks than what God thinks.
That’s also why they slavishly deny the evidence of creation so they can be seen as unignorant. The evidence that God designed and made everything is everywhere implied by science but they can’t disagree with our atheist sages who insist that science shows we came from nothing over billions of years and just got lucky.
Praise be to Jesus and Mary! I am so sorry to hear this is happening to you. It should not be this way. Priests are supposed to be “dead to the world.” At my local parish, which I no longer attend, anymore, the Bishop sent a priest who is not from America and who I believe does not stand up for American rights. He immediately shook hands with the liberal long-standing feminists in the Church and whored out the Church to Satan; that is, in a huge massive million-dollar building project that builds the lay people a huge party hall. I am so upset about this, also because they are selling the land around the Church to build this “thing,” and the priest states it’s so people can party “outside of the chapel” instead of inside, which they do now. They party so much in the Church. Anyway, I opposed them and they all slandered me and booted me out of any potential clubs. I’m barely able to attend Mass, but the thing stressed me out to no end, that I told God “I cannot do it anymore!” and at that very moment, I actually saw a SHOOTING STAR above the United Hearts Pine Tree, as I call it, as I was walking outside at the time, venting my frustration to God. My husband now drives me a state away for Mass. I saw a huge flame coming out of the Cross on the Altar towards this priest at the new Church. Oh, he is so loved by God! He has been given so many graces. He hugs people when he sees them. I feel he is much like the “buon pastor” I saw in my dream (another story for another time). Don’t worry, God is coming soon! greenscapular.org read the new prophesies.
