"Hot enough for ya?"

As our summer temperatures heat up, we will all find ourselves asking our friends, and being asked, "Hot enough for ya?"

That reminds me of the story, and maybe you've heard it, too, about the good elderly pastor at Mass on a sweltering Sunday who told the congregation he would give only a short sermon. Then he told them, "Here is my entire sermon: If you think it's hot now, just wait."

You and I and everyone should take this story to heart, of course.

Sadly, it came to mind this morning when I learned that today's Los Angeles Daily News reports (click on this post's title) that our pro-abortion mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, is in adultery with a Telemundo TV reporter and that is why his wife Corina has filed for divorce.

The mayor is admitting it, news sources say.

According to the News, the mayor's wife says their teenage daughter Natalie Fe "is so upset" that she wants to change her name to Raigosa, her mom's surname before she and then-Antonio Villar combined their names when they married.

Having his wife's name, "Raigosa," still spliced to his after a divorce would be a little awkward for the mayor and his future political ambitions, don't you think? What will he do?

So during this hot summer, let us each think about the Four Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven, hell) as they apply to ourselves. And let us pray for the mayor and his accomplice in adultery, that they will think about them, too.

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins! Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen!
