When I think of the suffering and yet noble attitude of this man Pere Jacques in the face of such depravity and absolutely abhorrent inhuman behavior directed upon so many innocent people and him; yet he didn’t flinch in his duties before the Lord; I’m in awe!
Many of us at one time or another cry out that we are in pain or suffering in one way or another; sometimes even feigning attention and craving consoling or the licking of our wounds. I don’t want to make anything of it but I had done some, what I felt was very unnecessary suffering at the hands of highly partisan, corrupted, political nefarious persons who are of this NWO cult these days, but, when I consider what others especially like this man had to endure I know my own suffering wasn’t so great that it even really matters at all. I think now, so what if I suffered, I’ve also had so many blessings and amazing opportunities many of which the majority of people in the world don’t have or ever experience.
Yes, we should count our blessings instead; and then seek that inner strength that Pere had which can only come from devout faith and humility; as in making an offering of our lives to Him above, who makes all things possible, our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ; who we must remember is God and made Himself one of us in the flesh; who actually suffered “all” the sins of the world accompanied by “all” the pain and suffering that goes with them. Do you see how this gave Him as God the total ability to know every single thing that we experience and go through, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of being a “fallen human being” and what that does to us and actually “feels like?”
Yes; He loves us that much that He would take upon Himself full responsibility for all our misgivings and sins. So perfect that we have God, our Savior too, who is “all” that and makes our individual existences more precious than we can understand, because, only He knows each of us “completely” and has a plan for every one of us; if we will believe in Him until the end, no matter how difficult this journey becomes! Accept it all with honor, dignity and thanks, giving all of our hearts to Him; who is the only One who can return to us all we will ever need beyond our wildest imaginations! Amen.

This is the PART II of the story from ‘Venite Prandete’ about the life of Père Jacques, the Christ-like French priest of World War II.
At this time, he met with his friend, Lucien Weil, an eminent botanist. Upon seeing a yellow star on his friend’s coat, he bristled with indignation. Passive acceptance of discrimination made one complicit in the Vichy government’s adoption of the Nazi race-based policy of anti-Semitism, a policy that had already excluded Jews from most Government positions, including teaching at State schools. Professor Weil had been removed from his professorship at the Lycee Carnot at Fontainbleau. Pere Jacques immediately invited Professor Weil to teach science at the Petit-College. His friend accepted the invitation and joined the faculty when the school resumed in 1942.
Following occupation by the Germans of the previously autonomous Free Zone held by the Vichy government in November…
