Here we are in the Easter season after, what seemed to be, a 13 month long Lent. How easy would it be for us all to fall into despair, accepting defeat. Isn’t that what they felt as Jesus laid in the tomb? “It’s over,” they lamented. Death and the tyrants of death won. But, God reminded us that it is always darkest before the dawn. God reminded us that death is not the victor. God reminded us that the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
Now, as creation all around us is bursting forth with “signs of life,” churches throughout the world took a tiny flame from a blessed fire and let that light spread throughout the church and, from there, throughout the world! YOU are a child of the LIGHT!!!! YOU are commissioned to BRING IT to the world!!!
We are so pleased to have Fr. Frank Pavone join us this week to unravel the question, “Where do we go from here?” We must FIGHT!! And, we must let our light overcome the darkness of this tyrannical power that has seized control. Revival is coming!!
As Ronald Reagan once said,
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness. We’re at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. And it’s been said, if we lose this war, and in so doing, lose this great way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those that had the most to lose did the least to prevent it from happening.
Well, I think it’s high time now that we ask ourselves if we still even know the freedoms that were intended for us by our founding fathers. Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exists, not to do what you like, but having the right to do what you ought, and that is the freedom that I wish for you. Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation.”
Be Saints. You weren’t made to fit in, you were born to stand out.
