What in the world is happening? I myself have thought: Is this a chastisement from Almighty God? Who would not have thought this?


In this day and age evils one after another bombard us. And often from unlikely places, like for instance Disney, the NY Governor and legislature, libraries, so-called “Catholics” in our government. The list goes on. Many are deceived by apparently well-meaning men and women, leaders in various professions.


In the present crises it is understandable that those who listen to Governor Cuomo reporting on the virus appreciate his calm and informative talks. No wonder some say he should be our president. After all, what has Trump done? Well for one thing he supports the pro-life issues more strongly than any president thus far. You can Google and find numerous pages of what he has done and is doing.


On the other hand in 2019 Governor Cuomo signed a bill to allow abortion in NY up to 24 weeks and up to birth if the life of the mother is somehow jeopardized by the baby. This event was greeted by cheers from those present at the signing and the governor lit the top of the One World Trade Center to celebrate. One woman who spoke that day said he is saving women’s lives. What about the lives of the baby girls who are aborted?


To top it off (as my mom would say) the same governor stated on this past Easter Monday: “The numbers are down because we brought the numbers down. God did not do that. Fate did not do that. Destiny did not do that. A lot of pain and suffering did that.”


This brings to mind words of Jesus on the cross: “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” Or what they say!
