I'm not a news portal - obviously - so I haven't written much if anything regarding the most recent dictatorial power grab by the Obama Administration to limit religious freedom in and through the Obamacare contraceptive mandate. It is all over the news and I have nothing to add, except to say:
- I'm against it: The mandate and the policies of the immoral Obama Administration.
- I stand with the Bishops of the Catholic Church.
- Obama can not and should not be re-elected.
To borrow something I found at WDTPRS:
We belong to the Church militant ; and she is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass her destruction. - Pius XIIAs well as good advice from a less commercial source:
"Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one."
"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints...." (Eph. 6:13-18)
That exhortation from St. Paul begins with the reminder of where our real strength is found, "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might." (Eph. 6:10]
So what orders does this soldier all dressed for battle receive? Pray. Pray at every opportunity. Pray, calling upon the Holy Spirit who took up residence in you at your baptism to guide and anoint your prayers.
And the enemy would love nothing more than to convince us that prayer and the grace poured out are of no use.
Of course, we need to continue to herald the truth of the faith at all times, in all places everywhere. The Church is not just the conscience of the world, but the true home of the whole human race. We are simply sharing messages from that home.
We also need to continue to actively lobby and work for those causes that are right and true and honoring to our Lord and His Church.
Yet we must also pray - or should I say foremost, we must pray. - Catholic Online
