God has chosen all of us to live in a time of crisis in the Church unlike any other in history. What an honor!
Do not be downcast or anxious. Think of the graces he will offer us if we live our vocations well and remain faithful, hopeful and charitable. The harder the times, the more abundant the grace, the greater the glory. And we are for greater glory.
That said, it is an honor to live in these days principally because it’s a time of war. We are being called to serve in our militant roles more than ever. Some will be in the front lines and some will be in supporting roles. All must be ready to go either to the front or behind the lines, depending on the circumstances of their vocations and God’s will. Even those who are in supporting roles have to bear arms and train, and I implore you to ready yourselves in study, thoughtful reflection and prayer.
Christ always wins in the end.
Last night, Bp. Schneider’s new book was presented formally to an audience of prestigious participants, including several Cardinals. This was an important event.
Here is the video of Bp. Schneider’s talk. It is from The Remnant and Michael Matt has an introduction. Many organizations were involved to make this happen. I’ve started, however, at the beginning of the bishop’s talk. You can rewind and watch the rest. At about 3:30 there is a shot which shows the audience, with Cardinals Burke, Müller, and Arinze.
Christus Vincit: Christ’s Triumph Over the Darkness of the Age
I am pushing this book hard because it is an important book.
And Robert de Mattei’s talk was quite significant. I am sure it will be translated soon.
Meanwhile… what do I mean when I talk about time of crisis and war? This is going on within the Church today! A friend sent me this, which looks like Fakebook. It was for what is really Columbus Day, but is now the spectacularly incoherent “Indigenous Peoples’ Day”. This is from – it must be – some nuns.
See what I mean?
Go with Schneider.
