On an episode of the SSPX Podcast, Dr. McCall, who is now the editor of Catholic Family News following the death of Mr. John Vennari, was interviewed. We discussed a question from a reader on the topic of Just Wars. Dr. McCall was one of the panelists at the War Symposium, which is available now as a CD Box Set.
One day, St. Catherine of Sienna asked Our Lord why He allowed His side to be opened. The Divine Master gave the saint His goal:
"The principal goal I had in mind was to reveal to men the secret of My Heart in order that they might understand that My love is even greater than the exterior signs I give of it; for while there is an end to My sufferings, there is no end to My love."
