Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs our prayers!
Fr. Rich Pagano debunks AOC. He explains and compares Christ to Fr. Damien in the Gospel of Matthew.
“Now think about this: a leper that was completely ostracized–completely disassociated with community. Talk about oppressive–it’s social injustice,” Fr. Pagano explains.
“Jesus draws close to this leper, as the leper was adoring Jesus (as the scripture says). ‘Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.
“‘He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, ‘I will do it. Be made clean.’ His leprosy was cleansed immediately.’ (Matt. 8:3)
“Now we see the priestly function as it relates to the social exile–as it relates to the person who is unclean.” Fr. Pagano continues. “Jesus literally touches the wound, which is unheard of in the practice of Judaism.
“That type of charity, in the action of Jesus Christ, whom we worship and adore still today, and it’s in the same manner that the leper loves and adores the person of Jesus Christ. The Church is still in that active worship and that adoration of the person of Jesus, because he shows us the priestly function of healing.
“When you look at the person of St. Damien, as he’s being upheld as an oppressor–if you’re saying that he is an oppressor, then you’re saying that Jesus Christ is an oppressor. Because his actions truly reflect the person of Jesus Christ, exactly what we just heard in the Gospel of Matthew.
“But we are living in a time of complete disorientation and disorder and chaos, where good is being flipped on its head and called evil, and we need to start having serious conversations about what is being said in the public sector.
“I’m definitely not a politician. I am in love with Jesus Christ and I want to serve him to whatever extent that I possibly can.
But now seeing the defacing of the movement of Jesus Christ in our country–how our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and morals, is truly being defaced and being torn down right before our eyes. It’s time to do something.”
