To fight for the defense of the persecuted and vulnerable is a holy thing! Thanks, Daddy, for your service at Pearl Harbor and throughout your career as a naval officer! May we never forget those who fought or died for our freedom!
We are called the Church Militant not the Church Picnic or the Church Milquetoast. Do you defend the faith? You can't if you don't know it. Let us all commit to studying the catechism and the lives of the saints. And then share it.
St. Ambrose is a saint for our time since he defended the faith against the Arian heresy and we certainly have many heretics and dissenters today. May we have his same spirit of charity as St. Ambrose did as we defend the faith.
It's the second week of Advent. Are you lighting your Advent wreath?
