But be prepared for the persecution! You may lose your job; you probably won't lose your life. Be a man like the seven sons in Maccabees and a woman like their courageous mother. Let us fight for the faith and for the culture, walking in the footsteps of St. Stephen!
Fr. Tom Collins sent me this email the other day:
The video link below dramatically shows how courageously confronting the secularist “social justice” agenda can be quite effective. Sadly, this agenda still guides many powerful officials in the Vatican and the USCCB, as they become incrementally more adept at adapting to and adopting the secularist Culture of Desecration of Death.
Note, for example, that while many Church leaders “officially” oppose aborticide, they refuse to embrace any discipline against those promoting aborticide - even going so far as to insist that the Eucharistic Christ wills to ratify their agenda with His own Sacred Body and Precious Blood.Have you ever heard of Turning Point USA? They are growing Maccabees among the young. Praise God! Watch the video and rejoice.
It is sad that those preparing for Confirmation are rarely presented with such an example of profile in courage.
Pray for deliverance!
The video made me laugh and wish I could give James O'Keefe a high five. I sent Project Veritas a Christmas donation instead. And I think I'll have a Mass said for James and his team.
Five thousand young people heard this talk. How many does it take to turn around a culture? How many Maccabees fought the profaning of the temple by Antiochus IV and his army? They were the "guerrillas" of their day refusing to bend the knee to the tyrant.
How many "rebels" fought the powerful English empire? You don't need to be a majority. Sometimes, as James O'Keefe shows, two people can destroy an evil organization. Just ask ACORN.
