What is our country coming to? Is it too late for the Culture as Michael Vorst seems to think? Acceptance of sexual perversion was the downfall of Sodom and Gomorrah. What makes us think that this culture - filled with death and sexual perversion - would, unlike Sodom and Gomorrah, be exempt from Divine Justice?
We must be prepared to stand strong and bear whatever it takes to witness to the Truth. Last Sunday's Gospel prophetically says that we must be prepared for the Master's return.
. . . Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be . . . Gird your loins and light your lamps and be like servants who await their master's return . . . Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival . . . You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come . . .Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward whom the master will put in charge of his servants to distribute (the) food allowance at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so . . . But if that servant says to himself, 'My master is delayed in coming,' and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, to eat and drink and get drunk, then that servant's master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the unfaithful . . . Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more. ~ Luke 12:32-48 (NAB)
Much of this Real Catholic TV video re-iterates what Fr. John Corapi said this last Saturday at the conference in San Antonio. Fr. Corapi spoke emphatically on the need to stand against the culture's approval of evil and the need for us to evangelize. He reminded us that when God's people were unfaithful, they were sent into exile. We must be good stewards of the Faith. Know the Truths of the Faith. Build it up in those whose faith is weak by speaking the Truth. Fight against the present evils of this world. Do not hoard the Faith, thinking you are secure in your salvation, by burying the talents given to you until the Master's return. Be the good and faithful servant by witnessing to the Faith and you will multiply with His Grace the talents He has entrusted to you.
"Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more." (Luke 12:48)
What are you doing to prepare for the Master's return? Wake up! Midnight is fast approaching. Steal yourselves against the present evils by immersing yourself in the Faith - both spiritually and intellectually - completely. Fortify your intellect and will with Grace and Knowledge of the Faith to stand strong as a witness (martyr). The time will come. As Michael Vorst says,
"The clock is running out. A great awakening is needed . . . We cannot lose the war for our souls. Get to your loved ones. Invigorate the strong, strengthen the weak, and shore up the lapsed. This must become the primary focus of our conversations in our homes. . . . What is going on is a marshaling of the church - a concentrating - a process by which those who adhere to the faith are being more densely packed - more solid - so that they will be able to resist . . . Be living Catholics. Pray for courage - superhuman courage. . . .This is your chance - the moment planned and prepared for you from all eternity - to shine brighter than the stars of heaven. With what love will your heavenly Father behold your light in the darkness of so much evil!"
