Feast of the Chair of Peter
It is good to reflect on the fact that no matter how dismal the outlook, the Holy Spirit has promised to remain with the Church. "The gates of hell will not prevail against her." Gates are a defensive instrument. The faithful are the ones called to be "militant" and fight the devil. Our most effective weapons are the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, the rosary and other devotions, and the truth spoken in charity. We live today in the culture of the lie. We must oppose it with the culture of truth. We must expose the liars for what they are and expose them relentlessly. Creepy crawlies hide in the dark. They must be exposed to the light. That's the job of the Church Militant. And we have a whole army in the Church Triumphant as allies. Ora et labora.
