Thought for the Day – 7 August – Rash Judgement

Thought for the Day – 7 August – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Rash Judgement

Rash judgements are sometimes formed quite thoughtlessly.
At other times they are produce of malice, envy, pride or hatred.
Even when they are lightly arrived at, they are sinful because they are opposed to the law of charity.
When they are the result of one of the passions mentioned, they are far more gravely sinful because, they presuppose the intention of injuring our neighbour.
Rash judgements like this, rarely remain enclosed in the mind but are expressed openly, with consequent damage to the character of the victim!

It is easy to progress from lighter faults to grave sin in this matter.
A rash judgement soon becomes slander and, a sin against charity, soon becomes a sin against justice involving an obligation to make reparation.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏

  2. I pray I am not guilty of this as a sin when I speak of our President’s saying he is personally against abortion but he is for women to make the decision to kill the baby. Is he ignorant of the fact that life begins at conception!

    1. Yep Hughie – I have heard such behaviour from so-called Catholics and worse still from heretics – like ‘the baby probably would have had a poor life” or become a criminal etc’.
      I truly find it very difficult to pray for these!

    1. I kind of bypass the church I guess. Especially when I pray, “Oh my Jesus,” as Mary taught us through the shepherd children. I can’t help thinking of those catholics who practice with deaf ears and scales over their eyes.

      1. Hmmm – yes (A HUGE problem with the V II church) – they are lost – it is a lie by Bergoglio (and others before him) and all those of whom you speak – GOD IS JUSTICE and LOVE. He CANNOT act unjustly – SIN requires PUNISHMENT – GOD can NEVER smile on sin.

  3. He is OUR Pope my dearest. And I pray for him also and his intentions. Which are for this month small businesses. See he cares about you even as we begin our 8th year in WWIII, as I think Historians will eventually call this period from 2014-????.
    But I am being facetious. God forgive me. Amen

    1. In today’s Novena I said a special prayer for the painting- lost, alone, ignored to be found and delivered to me. “As you are my Mother let your image also shine!”
