We are a dying nation, not because we lack effort, but because we do too much while pushing God's Almighty contribution aside. In deifying our own efforts, we have secularized our nation; in effect, making money, power, and success the new Holy Trinity.
We have also turned our back on the One True God.
Subsequently, the vacuum of Justice and Mercy has been filled by ideologies, powered by technologies and politics, which deny the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yet, there is one place on this earth which cannot be vacuous of God's powerful Presence. One place on earth where men and women wielding tyrannical power cannot rob God of the glory due to Him alone.
And this one place must be protected to our last drop of blood...
"In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 1:3-9
We are being forced to subsidize the destruction of human life (abortion and contraception) against our faith-guided consciences, and our Traditional American upbringing. We are told we are racists, bigots, and homophobes when we criticize the administration of the first African-American President, when he disrespects, and destroys, the Sacrament of Marriage, and the health, and wealth, of the American family. Not out of the realm of possibility, we may expect to become 'hate' criminals if we pursue our faith beliefs in public life. For example, if you are a priest and you refuse to participate in the marriage of a gay couple, you may be arrested. Also, if you own a business, and for reasons of faith, you deny certain services to certain people, like baking a wedding cake with two men on top, you may be arrested.
Like the rest of the world, American faith is beginning to take on a fiery character.
"I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart in the company and assembly of the just. Great are the works of the LORD, exquisite in all their delights. He has given food to those who fear him; he will forever be mindful of his covenant." Psalm 111:1-2, 5-6, 9-10
Persecution is the form of our salvation! When we are persecuted we find no better home than within the Perpetual Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, found sacramentally present within the Holy Catholic Mass. The Cross is our salvation--and when we are given our cross in persecution, there is no more powerful means to fight evil with Love than within the Passion, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The powers of the world can shackle us, they can take away our freedom, steal our property, burn our flag, confiscate our guns, trample our Constitution, but they cannot touch our faith, especially when God's grace flows from within us through the proper reception of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
...for we Live Free only in the Blood of Christ.
"So Jesus again said to them in reply, 'Children, how hard it is to enter the Kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.' They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves, 'Then who can be saved?' Jesus looked at them and said, 'For men it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.'” Mark 10:17-27
Salvation is now!
America's salvation is a now choice, not an item to put on the back burner. The gates have already been breached, and the barbarians are running the show. But, all is not lost...yet. That is, if Catholics, and Christians, can let go of the technological shackles and ideological fallacies they have embraced so intimately in becoming minions of secularists, socialists, and baby killers.
Social justice (socialism, entitlements, race baiting, etc.,) without God, will never build a stairway to heaven. Democracy without Judaeo-Christian morality will never build an earthly utopia. And a nation without the Catholic Mass is a body without a soul. For America without the Cross of Christ is just another heartless, compassionless, regime, preparing to be toppled by the next barbarian invasion.
America's future, in the last bastion of God's saving Presence, depends on the perpetuation of the Catholic Mass. This must never be taken away. This is non-negotiable. This is the topic of martyrdom.
For, as Tertullian said, 'The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.' Yet, a martyr's faith relies on the Blood of the Christ.
