Terminally ill priest Luigi Squarcia came to Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday and offered his «sufferings for the good of the Church»
Father Luigi Squarcia, a pastor in the Italian town of Acquapendente who has suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease for the last four years, met with Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday and offered his «sufferings for the good of the Church».
After the meeting with the Holy Father in Paul VI Hall, Father Squarcia said:
«I came to offer the Pope my sufferings for the good of the Church. I am here, for the first time, after years of working with the parishioners and the children at our school».
Now, he told L’Osservatore Romano,
«I can no longer move my arms or legs and I know I will lose my speech and later maybe the ability to breathe». He noted that more people than ever are coming to him for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Lou Gehrig’s disease is a serious neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness, disability and eventually death.

This Catholic priest has replaced Jesus. Just change this line, and you will see this
The priest said:
«I came to offer the Pope my sufferings for the good of the Church»
With this kind of attitude, praying for healing will become the absolute non-sense. Why pray for healing, when physical terminal sickness is presented as something divine and good?
The truth is:
«Jesus came to offer the Pope His sufferings for the good of the Church».
Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
When we suffer and are persecuted, it will be a divine fruit of telling people the truth about sins like idol worship, sins like doctrine of Papal infallibility, sins like adoration, veneration and worship of saints and madonnas. Banned by the 2nd commandment it self.
2 Timothy 1:8
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.
It will forever be strange to me, that the prince of this World has blinded the Catholics, so they can not see, will always hear, but never being able to understand.
Why is there terminal physical sufferings in this World?
When we suffer sickness and pain, we do not suffer for the Church. Most of human sufferings is a result of the work of Satan. He has made men pollute God`s`perfect creation beyond repair.
The rest of the human sufferings is a result of our own free will. We suffer as a products of our own foolishness
When Jesus the Messiah walked on Earth, He healed everyone who came to Him in Faith. Only when Jesus returns, He will restore everything.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
