This morning I caught up.
I learned that Bp. Foys addressed the school, but parents weren’t allowed in. He seems to have said that he backs them, but …. The diocesan website has been replaced with a single page statement. The offices of the diocese had to be cleared because of a threat.
The sky is coming down on these young men.
Over in Cincinnati there are radio spots demanding that Foys back the boys. Even the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is getting calls, because no one can get through to Covington.
There is something truly demonic driving this. Remember that this world has its Prince. Family and life itself are the, as Sr. Lucia said, the final battle ground. The very first attack on humanity by the Enemy was an attack on creation itself. It is no surprise that this mess arose from a public march in support of life.
May I suggest to the readership to pray for the boys involved in this storm? This is a life changing event. This experience could help some of these young men become true warriors of the Faith. If the world hates them, it is because they hated the Lord first. Hence, in their conformity to Christ, so insulted and abused, they could be given mighty grace. In a time of formation of their manhood for the future, this is a pivotal moment.
Rosaries for them, please? Hours before the Blessed Sacrament? Friday penances?
Give these young men your spiritual support. As St. Augustine says, where there is charity, there are no distances.
Si vis pacem para bellum!
