Be on guard: the liberal agenda, which is aligned with the devil, is ultimately intended to lull you into hell.

People have been misled to think that liberals/democrats are kinder, nicer, more merciful... than conservatives/republicans, but that is not true. The conservatives are more pro-life from conception to the grave than liberals.

People think they will gain more rights and freedoms with the liberals, and that conservatives will take away their rights. Wrong again. Liberals do not have much faith in you, because they will want to micromanage every facet of your life as a way to control you, and they will create more laws to do so. And speaking of faith, liberals generally don't have much. So, the country you live in, which was founded upon faith and freedom, becomes more and more Godless, leading to even more restrictions.

The Liberals are the extremists.

"All the evil in the world is due to lukewarm Catholics." (Father Rick Heilman quote by Pope Saint Pius V)

We see more and more the dignity of people being eroded, whether implicitly on tv or internet that depict people in less than dignified scenarios, or explicitly through abortion or end of life legislation. Either way, it has the devil's signature all over it.

Can you think of other ways in which society is lowering the dignity of a person all in the name of freedom of expression?

“In vast areas of the earth the faith risks being extinguished, like a flame without fuel.” The pope warned, “We are facing a profound crisis of faith, a loss of a religious sense which represents one of the greatest challenges for the Church today … The renewal of faith must, then, be a priority for the entire Church in our time.” Pope Benedict XVI source: https://www.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/speeches/2012/january/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20120127_dottrina-fede.html

People may think they are gaining their long lost freedom; just like what many of the Jews were erroneously led to believe at the foot of Mount Sinai, when they were sinning and turning away from God - the exact time that Moses was on the mountain obtaining the law (10 Commandments).

As Father Robert Altier reminds us, "Freedom is acting according to the will of God to do what is truly the best."

Don't worry people, you have your freedom. The freedom to do whatever you want, always. God, as a loving parent will never take away your freedom of choice - to choose Him or to choose satan. Just keep in mind that we are only here in this valley of tears for a brief time, but can spend eternal bliss with God in Heaven, forever. Don't get fooled by the majority who think this is all there is.

And how beautiful it is to God, when someone, out of their own free will and choice, chooses Him, especially in this time of faithlessness and tepidity.

In the big picture, the question really becomes: who in their right mind would put their faith in this broken world or want to go to hell for all eternity after they die?

Of course, you want to be on the winning side.

We can all basically agree that there is a profound lack of mercy in the world today. But don't confuse the liberal kind of mercy where justice and truth are sorely lacking.

Did you know....

"...it is Christians who frequently endure the heaviest burden of persecution. Indeed around the world, Christians are believed to be targets of about 80% of all acts of religious discrimination or persecution." (source: Jeremy Hunt, British Foreign Secretary)

11 CHRISTIANS KILLED EVERY HOUR - At least 100,000 Christians are killed every year because of their faith, which amounts to 273 per day, or ELEVEN EVERY HOUR. (source: Bishop John McAreavey).

THAT'S ONE CHRISTIAN BEING KILLED ABOUT EVERY FIVE MINUTES!

In Canada (like other countries), they have been MURDERING its own citizens through abortion for years, and now the number of slaughtered in Canada is up to 100,000 per year. And to make up for the declining population, the Canadian Government has been bringing in immigrants (now 250,000 per year) from other countries. But of course, many of the aborted babies would have grown up to have one or more children of their own. Wow! Crazy policy right?

Governments should offer incentives for their OWN citizens to have children like some wise countries do. Since countries are defined by their population; if they change the population, they change the country. And that is not good.

If we stand for others, why won't we stand for babies? Their LIVES MATTER.

WHOSE LIVES MATTER TO GOD? ALL LIVES MATTER TO GOD, ESPECIALLY THE UNBORN.

Our Lady emphasized prayer and sacrifice. If we are willing to pray and make sacrifices for the priesthood, we the Laity can become a powerhouse for the good of the Church. Even the holiest of priests are in great  need of our prayers to fortuitously carry on their mission of faithfulness to save souls.

The Third Secret (of Fatima) is directed, with particular force, to those who exercise the pastoral office in the Church. Their failure to teach the faith, in fidelity to the Church’s constant teaching and practice, whether through a superficial, confused or even worldly approach, and their silence endangers mortally, in the deepest spiritual sense, the very souls for whom they have been consecrated to care spiritually. The poisonous fruits of the failure of the Church’s pastors is seen in a manner of worship, of teaching and of moral discipline which is not in accord with Divine Law.

-Cardinal Raymond Burke

I often wondered how most people will be fooled by the Antichrist at the endtimes, whenever that may be. But seeing how most people were fooled by the media and other liberals about President Donald Trump, it is crystal clear to me how that will happen.

Jesus, Mary and Islam:  Muslims call Jesus a prophet, but Jesus clearly refers to Himself as the Son of God (because He is).
If Mary is the most honored woman in Islam, Muslims have to believe she is the Mother of God (as she clearly believes for over 2000 years). They can't have it both ways.

<><><><><>

What did the holy saints say about Islam?

<><><><><>

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION - is about what occurred at the moment Mary was conceived in her mother, Anne's womb. It is not about the birth of Jesus. It is what God did to prepare Mary at the very start of HER life. And it is why she is "full of grace".

We should be picking sides already. Yes, we need to become divisive. Standing on the fence is the tepid, nauseating approach.

Yes, you have to choose or the choice, at some point, will be made for you.

Of course, you can always cross over to the winning side whenever you want. But you have to choose. In any battle, you have to choose.

"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously." (Pope John Paul II, 1976)

Worried about stepping on toes and/or causing division? Don't worry:

“I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!

There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!

Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division." (Luke 12:49-51)

It's strange: liberals are against guns, but they are pro-death. They are pro-death because they want to abort babies day after day and year after year, and assist people with dying (even healthy people at times).

EXCERPT FROM THE 54 DAY NOVENA FOR OUR NATION:
DAY 34 - MARY, HEALTH OF THE SICK, PRAY FOR US THIS DAY WE FIGHT  Spiritually speaking, the devil is doing all that he can to catch us isolated and unarmed on the battlefield - no spiritual armor, no spiritual weapons, and no comrades in the heavenly realm to fight alongside of us. In other words, the reason evil is promoted so effectively today is because we're ignoring God's offer of supernatural strength and power and ignoring the mightiest of all allied forces: the Communion of Saints.
C.S. Lewis wrote, "Enemy-occupied territory - that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage." The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us: "This dramatic situation of 'the whole world, which is in the power of the evil one,' (1 Jn 5:19; cf. 1 Pt 5:8) makes man's life a battle: 'the whole of man's history has been the story of dour combat with the powers of evil, stretching, so our Lord tells us, from the very dawn of history until the last day. Finding himself in the midst of the battlefield, man has to struggle to do what is right, and it is at great cost to himself, and aided by God's grace, that he succeeds in achieving his own inner integrity' (Gaudium et Spes, 37:2)" (CCC 409).
Are you ready to do battle? In the movie, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Aragorn calls his men to throw down the gauntlet against the forces of evil. Let this call be ours: "My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight!" (Excerpt from Father Richard Heilman's book, Church Militant Field Manual).

Has your parish initiated a program or hired a person or a group for evangelization?
 "We've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything" - could not speak any more directly to the modern tsunami-like wave of secularism rolling across our planet, as well as our endless parade of parish programs that are mostly done as though God were not there (etsi Deus non daretur). In other words, the story of the great catch is meant to show that when we try to move only under our own natural power without God (we've worked hard), we will flounder in the chaos of darkness (all night) and come up empty (caught nothing) every time. Jesus asks us to get in sync with him (to obey him) and not be afraid to set aside our superficial (man-powered) tendencies, as we enter the depths of a supernatural (God-powered) life. (Fr. Richard Heilman)

"What we suffer now can never compare to the glory that awaits us." Rom. 8:18

It is possible (but unlikely) to obtain, but you'll never, ever maintain, more than what you think you deserve.

Forgiveness:  Sure, we must work towards forgiveness; but, what do we do with our FEELINGS? Keep in mind, our feelings are the INNER CHILD, and, when we deny or stuff our feelings, we stifle the INNER CHILD a.k.a. YOUR TRUE SELF. No one ever mentions that. (mdbys)

This is not a mystery to us: the mainstream media wants to give the impression that the topic of abortion is not important, but if they suspect a person running for office to have pro-life views, then it's the main topic.

The pro-life movement is not about control; it's about life.

Some atheists think that the Big Bang replaces the role of a creator, since this mysterious explosion created everything out of nothing. But they’re forgetting something. The Big Bang theory was actually first proposed by a Catholic priest named Fr. Georges Lemaître.

Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. 13Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. Eph 6:11-13

For 1500 years the only church was the Catholic Church, until the Protestant Reformation. Hmmm division, I wonder who's responsible for that?

None of the damned were ever lost because his sin was too great, but because his trust was too small.  Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos

If you're a Christian, and you're not looking forward to death, then there is something seriously wrong with your priorities.
