Thought of the day

There's a difference between a hypocrite and someone who struggles with their sins. All of us fail to varying degrees but that does not make us hypocrites in the process.

Thought of the day

Is it possible that all things that we see are merely symptoms of a problem larger than any of us can imagine?

Thought of the day

Light has two natures: wave and particle, Jesus has two natures, human and divine...coincidence? I think not.

It was once said that things can be seen through peoples' eyes...perhaps that is true..

The courage to stand up

I must admit, it's a lot easier for me to use the blogosphere to teach as I'm a natural introverted person, and tend to be extremely shy in my public person. Those of you that have the misfortune of knowing me outside of my blog know I do virtually everything in my power to deflect any attention about my person.

But that said, it is often necessary to speak up about various issues of the day. 

Is it easy? Absolutely not! Silence is something we can't do! The culture is attacking us with absolutely no remorse. If we shut up and say nothing, they will run us over, and will do so until we can no longer breathe. 

Negotiating with evil is something we can't do, we must fight evil, we must fight the errors whether they're coming from outside, or from inside. The Truth must win, and while it certainly can't be imposed, it's hard for people to come to the Truth, when it is not known or shared. 

It doesn't matter whether we're talking about abortion, "gay marriage", papal interviews, or even the president of the US, or our various policies. We as a society need to have the courage to stand up and defend the Truth, support those that are persecuted and fight the culture with offense, not sitting being pansies and taking it without fighting. 

If we don't fight, we will lose, always remember, the best defense is a good offense.

Pray for our brethren in Mosul

Let us pray for our Christians in the middle east being persecuted.....I'm not much into the social movements....but I indeed stand with our brethren in the middle east. "Blessed are those who are persecuted and reviled against for My sake"

In earnest, let us pray for them....Let us also pray for the conversion of their persecutors to the Catholic Faith, for in her, will be found peace.

Pax Vobis

This is the arabic letter for "n" for Nazarene, which is being used to identify those places which belong to the Christians, let us stand with our brethren in the middle east!

It is often hard to criticize those we love, because we love them, but charity demands that corrections be made...even if they're difficult to do.
