Prophecy, Then and Now

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

In 1884 it was written: days like ours, when error is so pretentious and aggressive, every one needs to be as completely armed as possible with sound knowledge, not only the clergy, but the people also, that they may be able to withstand the noxious influences of popularized irreligion. In the great coming combat between truth and error, between faith and agnosticism, an important part of the fray must be borne by the laity, and woe to them if they are not well prepared!” 
–James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore
(former chaplan of Ft. McHenry)

One hundred and twenty-eight years later, on November 6, 2012 we Catholics on American soil failed the test. 

“woe to them if they
are not well prepared!”

Woe to the priests, religious
and laity for we have seen
this coming for a long time.

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
