01-25-2024 Sirach 11 V0608 Absolute disgrace enter even the exalted


The Book of Sirach Ch 11 v- Six thru Eight

6 Many are the exalted who fall into utter disgrace, many the honored who are given into the power of the few. 7 Before investigating, do not find fault; examine first, then criticize. 8 Before listening, do not say a word, interrupt no one in the midst of speaking.

The world would be a better place if these rules were followed. The world will always say, “Innocent until proven guilty.” But reality speaks of injustice much deeper than that echoing the left over the right where no consequences are brought against the guilty who parade their exalted position of elected honor to the extent of ruining the ambiance of the once most dominant society of the world. There are so many examples its hard to keep up with them and they have affected everything we do from buying groceries to how we approach living a devout life. My poem reflects this judgement before lived seeking to share how truth matters most but remains blatantly ignored. Amen.

Guilt prove innocent remain

In a world where judgment reigns supreme,

Where opinions form before truth's gleam,

A call to reason, a plea for grace,

To embrace the art of a fairer chase.

Innocent until proven guilty, we say,

A principle that should guide our way,

For in the depths of shadowed doubt,

Lies the truth we must seek out.

Let us not rush to condemn or blame,

But rather examine with a discerning aim,

To investigate, to gather every clue,

Before casting judgment, let us be true.

For fault cannot be found in haste,

Like delicate threads, truth must be traced,

Let the echoes of innocence prevail,

As we seek the truth, the whole living tale.

Through the corridors of doubt we tread,

With open minds and hearts widespread,

With careful eyes, let us dissect,

The layers of truth, the facts connect.

For in this world of biased cries,

Where falsehoods spread like wildfire's rise,

We must remember our duty to find,

The truth, the justice, that binds.

So let us not judge with a blind eye,

But with patience, understanding apply,

Examine first, then criticize,

To ensure fairness, truth's reprise.

Let innocence be our guiding light,

As we navigate the shadows of the night,

For in the pursuit of truth, we find,

A justice that's righteous and kind.

So let us echo the anthem of grace,

And honor the principle we embrace,

Innocent until proven guilty, we stand,

With open minds, justice in our hand. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.

At the Savior's command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Absolute disgrace enter even the exalted**

Absolute disgrace enter even the exalted

The few give power to those who are honored

First examine and investigate before they are faulted

Criticize not listen say nothing speakers interrupt not dishonored
