Informing one's conscience
There is an ancient Greek Philosophy that those whom the Gods love, they drive crazy. How often in my young days did I hear that misquoted as Those whom God loves He drives mad. How back to front that last statement is. It is a properly developed Love of ours that emerges from Perfect Divine Contemplation of our own arising to from true mysticism that gives us such a virtue of Zeal that we act in the eyes of the world with their version of lunacy. Think about that when you sit down bored with TV and Videos, when the internet has nothing to offer you, then using Mary's word said , “Ponder it over within your soul”
I was also asked not long ago, “Does God love His enemies ? Of course He does. He waits patiently with a sorrowful love for penitence from those alive and dead to Him in this world and for us still active in this temporal world to pray for the poor souls in Purgatory, and for those in this world who suffer for addiction, whatever bandage that is the sin holds them. I was taught so long ago it is sinful not to pray for the Pope and the Poor Souls of Purgatory. I would think it would be a great act of charity to teach our little children, still pure and free from sin to teach them to pray for all of the above.
