It seems increasingly likely that in the not-to-distant future, we Catholics will be called to "take the stand" or "make a stand." New Evangelization this Third Millennium will not come without a cost.
As disciples of Jesus and Mary we must witness a predisposition to the BOTH/AND, the more abundant life that we have in Christ. We have no reason to fear as long as we continue to seek HIS TRUTH in all we are and all we do. There could be no Resurrection without the Cross of Calvary— a primary BOTH/AND.
The world beckons us to don masks and a new face for every occasion: from Halloween to Carnival, from make-up to make-over, as if what God created is not good enough. Reality is an illusion and illusion is "real" when our "chosen lifestyle" includes sunglasses that shield us from the rays of light that witness to the LIGHT OF TRUTH.
If we are approaching the end-times, and I for one see ominous signs everywhere—we must seek the LIGHT OF CHRIST in the Holy of Hollies, the TABERNACLE—the center of mass of the Catholic Church.
Science Daily may have a WOW moment, a WOW discovery every few days, but...
Spirit Daily is the miracle that occurs each and every Catholic Mass where, through the action of a priest standing in persona Christi, the Holy Spirit effects the transubstantiation of ordinary bread and wine into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ—opening a portal for us to perceive True Light, the Lamb of God in His heavenly splendor.
Imitate Mary, Become like Jesus, Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Christ! See you on the High Ground!
