rebellion against God.
As we face this latest tsunami barelling down on the Church during the October hurricane season, we need soldiers of Christ committed to the truth to stand up to the liars and Church wreckers. Many wear roman collars, but their hearts wear
As one writer said, we are facing "High Noon" in the Church. In the film the sheriff, played by Gary Cooper, meets an incoming train arriving at noon filled with a gang of outlaws planning to take over the town. The other townsmen run for cover refusing to stand with the sheriff to protect their loved ones and their community. So Cooper faces them alone. Sound familiar? How few men in miters stand against the outlaws attacking our beloved Church and gobbling up the faith of the sheep? How few are willing to imitate Jesus or even the Old Testament prophets who chose God's law over man's lawlessness. May God have mercy on them come Judgment Day!
The October synod is a high noon moment. While we laity have less power to influence the decision makers in the Church, we are not physical or spiritual eunuchs. We can urge our bishops to stand against this assault on the faith and can stand against it ourselves by our fidelity to orthodoxy. Will the pope and his minions listen? Maybe not. Do it anyway. Your witness may convert a soul to the truth even if it doesn't succeed in the eyes of the world.
St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, pray for us!
