Are you truly pissed off about the state of our nation? Are you fed up with the environment our children must grow up in? Are you Catholic in name only, or are you ready to roll up your sleeves and wrestle with evil? Do you really care that the foundations of America are undergoing a seismic shift toward evil?
If you answered in the affirmative, consider this:
Our Catholic faith teaches us that life is precious, and that every human person is a unique and unrepeatable child of God, loved by God with an immeasurable Love, dignified, simply, in his, or her, very existence.
Well, my friends, that view is on a collision course with a view of the human person, spawned from the deepest recesses of hell.
And this fiery view is, part and parcel, the new American reality.
"And God, who knows the heart, bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit just as he did us. He made no distinction between us and them, for by faith he purified their hearts." Acts 15:7-21
Contrary to popular belief, Catholicism is for the people on the periphery.
Many an American will die in coming years...to a collective yawn.
Catholics are Pro-Life, and Pro Traditional Marriage, subsequently, Pro Family. Pro Family is both Pro-Nation and Pro-World. Yet, we live in a society which rejects perennial Truths (Catholic Truths), preferring the giddiness of tyranny and murder over the peace of mind in Christ.
But the subtle is in a welfare system which promotes single family parenting, increased minority homicide, and a proliferation of minority abortions. All this is met with a national yawn. The subtle is in chronic unemployment/ underemployment, mixed with possible amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Crime will go up. Deaths will occur. All this will be met with a national yawn. The subtle is in a weakened American military, which is represented internationally by a wimpy Presidential administration. Islamic Fundamentalism is subsequently emboldened, and Christians die every day in increasing numbers. Add that to the fact that our current Presidential administration has been persecuting Christians with an HHS mandate, while increasing Sharia Law in the United States. Obviously, deaths will occur. Yawns will be shared. The subtle is in the DHS buying up all the ammunition rounds in America, coupled with BLM land grabs out west. Add the increasing pressure to restrict our Constitutional right to bear arms, and death-by-government will ensue.
"Announce his salvation, day after day. Tell his glory among the nations; among all peoples, his wondrous deeds." Psalm 96:1-3, 10
Catholicism is about evangelization, and freedom of religion. Contrary to popular belief, Catholicism is about the freedom of the human person to respond to the Holy Spirit in due time, and in a most personal and natural way--through free will, intellectual discovery, and religious experience.
Contrary to popular opinion, the secularist, the socialist, and the hedonist want to dull the mind (marijauana/electronic gadgets) and restrict the freedom of the human person, steering them clear of Christianity, and enslaving them on ideology, entitlement, and popular pleasures.
As the Catholic preaches the Kingdom of Heaven come near in Jesus Christ, the enemy of our souls, in progressives and socialists and hedonists, preach the reign of the human person, and of the coming utopia, only a Christian persecution away. Destroy marriage, through easy-access-divorce, and the normalization of homosexuality, and the family will crumble. Kill the baby, and make motherhood a mirage for upward striving women. Kill grandma and grandpa, and remove inconveniences which preach of responsibility toward the weaker of our peoples. Promote contraception as a cure for the dis-ease of pregnancy. Mock the Church, stereotype the priests, demythologize Jesus, rationalize morality, and the new priest and priestess of America will be the politician and the pop star that brings the anti-Eucharist of 'toys and joys.'
"Jesus said to his disciples: 'As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love..." John 15:9-11
So, Catholics have two choices.
Obey the Commandments (and, yes, the Teaching of the Church), remaining in the safe-haven of God's Revelatory Love, or, follow the herd in the PC commandments of self-love, self-gratification, and murder of the Christian Spirit.
Quite simply, this begs the question, are you a Lover, or a murderer?
