    Father, what a great homily! Your homily makes remind some words of St. Faustina. She wrote in her Diary that the worst kind of martyrdom is the martyrdom of a long and heroic life. I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know why but I have a feeling that she said those? same words of the video’s title. 🙂

    Misfortunely (desastrosamente) many people mistake the Law of Love, Christ’s love with French Revolution’s motto: Igualité, Fraternité et Justice. That words can seem beautiful, but behind those ones there are anti-christian ideas, very bad and dangerous ideas!!! And French Revolution was a bloody revolution. That shows how hypocrite was its motto!?

    Some question marks in my previous comment shouldn’t stay there! No question mark after she said that … neither its motto. They were a typing mistakes.
