Many these days feel a little helpless as the lib Steamroller of Ambiguity squishes sickeningly forward, reducing clarity to an amorphous goo of permissive self-justification.
What can we do?
Feel helpless no longer.
You have at your disposal – 24/7 – powerful arms against the Enemy and their worldly agents.
PRAY… PRAY… PRAY!
Powerful is the Most Holy Rosary.
Powerful are your petitions at Holy Mass.
Powerful are your mortifications and reparations for sin.
We have to think long term.
We should bring back as soon as possible and in as many places as possible the traditional “Leonine Prayers” after Mass.
We should implement as soon as possible and in as many places as possible a tried, tested and true prayer for priestly vocations.
Don’t drift on the tide.
Chart your course.
ASK FOR THINGS.
To this end, I was delighted today to receive images of a sheet of prayers for after Mass implemented in a parish.
In their next printing, I hope they will make the language style more uniform (and use the “thees and thous” throughout). That said, I strongly applaud the priest at that parish for being wise and forward-thinking.
We have to think about the long term. We need priests – many more priests – with heart and pluck. We must bring them forth with strong support in prayer and concrete gestures.
We must also get down on our knees and ask the Mother of God and the Holy Archangel to help us in this time of battle for sanity and souls.
