A Switch in Attitude
Posted by Supertradmum
Pay attention, as the man or woman who will supposedly bring peace to a world in chaos by himself, on his own, without recourse to Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, will be the false prophet. Some will call him one of the many anti-Christs, who is anyone, from Antiochus, to Augustus, to Nero, to Stalin and Mao who have hated the Church and Her Members.
Pay attention to false promises of world order. The Prince of the World is not Christ, but he who said "I shall not serve". We need a change of attitude.
Now, we must work very hard for political freedom, religious rights, and the freedom of the Church to be in the world as a power, the physical institution created by Christ. As I pointed out this weekend, passivity and quietism of any types are heresies. However, we need a change of attitude.
We need to see ourselves increasingly marginalized and under siege, not in order to become paranoid, but to be "intelligent" and using our brains. Catholics MUST become more techy, using the Internet, twitter, and all the social networking while we can. This is a necessity. Secondly, we must make our local communities strong and loving. This means real community, day to day living with and bearing with our brothers and sisters in Christ, not merely being Sunday Catholics. Sunday Catholics will not survive the onslaught of marginalization and persecution.
Those in America who have said it can't happen here, or Catholics in England, who have forgotten their own Recusant History, need to wake up.
