Wow...a must-read from Monsignor Charles Pope on the state of the Church and the coming persecution. "It is time, past time, to retool. It is time to prepare for persecutions that will get bolder by the month and year. The dark movements that marched in under the banners of tolerance never meant it. And having increasingly gained power, they are seeking to criminalize anyone who resists their vision. No tolerance for us. Religious liberty is eroding, and compulsory compliance is already here. The federal courts increasingly shift to militantly secular and activist judges who legislate from the bench."
"...remember that we are surrounded by people who are watching us. They may be seeking Him and looking for someone—anyone—to show them the way to Christ." Today's blog post on ICL offers a relevant wake up call for Christians to counter the negative influences of the world with Christ-inspired joy and share that joy with others. Can we commit to at least make a difference in the life of one other person we will encounter today?
"Moms and dads, I want to let you in on a secret. You don't need permission from your children's coaches, teachers, youth ministers, scout leaders, etc, etc, etc, to have a family life. All those people have to ask YOU permission to borrow your kids. NOT the other way around."
"Here is the most difficult question of all to answer: Do we make Christ and His Church attractive and inviting to others through our words, actions and the way we carry ourselves?" My blog post for ICL is about embracing and living our Catholic "brand" and sharing the joy of our faith with others. After reading the post, how would you answer this challenging question?
"...I’ve found myself wondering if I’ve done a good enough job of preparing you. I’ve wondered if I’ve told you all the things I need to tell you." Colleen Duggan shares an excellent post about eight things she wants her children to remember this school year in the form of a letter. Well worth reading and sharing.
"Everything about our modern culture involves complexity and unnecessary layers. I long for more opportunities to live in the moment and experience life in 'real time' versus the frantic pace I often keep." This blog post offers us a much-needed wake-up call on achieving greater simplicity in our lives with three actionable steps.
"Guess what dads? Sometimes, you and I simply have to try harder. We have to give our best, even when we don’t feel like it. We have to sacrifice some work time, fun time, down time, and me time for the sake of our families." My post for ICL today shares four important principles and five helpful actions in a helpful "road map" to help Catholic fathers stay on track. Please read and share.
"Does anyone look around and wonder what has happened to us? We have the money to clone our pets but not care for the poor. Our lawmakers want to ignore atrocities fit for Nazi Germany happening in local Planned Parenthood clinics, and then wonder why kids are using guns to express themselves." Joannie Watson offers us an excellent post on what Pope Francis calls the "Throwaway Culture" and challenges us to do something about it. Are we ready?
"It is impossible not to be moved by the story of Chiara Corbella Petrillo. One life, however short, can make a difference; this is so clearly proven in the case of this incredible woman." K.V. Turley shares a moving post about a remarkable book: "Chiara Corbella Petrillo: A Witness to Joy" that is a tremendous witness to love and life.
"Maybe this was God’s plan all along for our son. I am just grateful that I can see it now and accept him, not only as one of my wonderful children who I love, but also as a child of God who was given to us for His divine purpose." Today's blog post for ICL is about a powerful lesson my wife and I learned about accepting God's will in our lives. Will you accept God's will in your life today?
