Contrast this with the Introit and Epistle from Sunday's Mass. First, the Introit, so beautiful an expression of how God wishes us well and longs for us to call upon him:
So, I think that it might just be possible that to seek to conform to the law of God means that a person may be something other than bad, a hypocrite, or ill. Maybe that person is striving for holiness? That's still a good thing, right?
So, when the whole world and the pope, too, are against you for trying to get to heaven, don't worry. Remember:
Said the Lord: "I think thoughts of peace and not of affliction. You shall call upon Me and I will hear you, and I will bring you back from captivity from all places."
