From today’s reading...
I know that after my departure savage wolves will come among you,
and they will not spare the flock.
And from your own group, men will come forward perverting the truth
to draw the disciples away after them.”
We see this today in many forms where some (one is too many)
- Catholic priests and Boy Scout volunteers are homosexual pedophile predators
- Doctors call abortion healthcare
- Snapchat and the entire Pride movement supported from D.C. to L.A., from Ellen to RuPaul to our local libraries sexualize 11-year-old and even 7-year-old kids and celebrate "Love has no age."
The results are sad but predictable—and predicted.
Attendance in Catholic churches in Western, "progressive," societies is down.
Women endure a lifetime of suffering after an abortion.
Child sex trafficking is on the rise.
The perverted wolves are thriving today, just as Paul predicted.
So follow Paul's advice. Remain vigilant. Engage in "hard work" to...
help the weak,
and keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said,
'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
Be thankful for the strength and the courage and the ability to work hard, to remain vigilant, and to help those in need, because that is the only way to...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
