At the present time, the hatred of the Muslim countries against the West is becoming a hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words: We are God’s host, each of us has ninety-nine eggs, and if we had a hundred, we should lay waste the world, with all that is in it.”
~ Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
The ‘writing on the wall’ has been in existence for decades and decades. As the years go by, we have have had the battle between comfort and faith. Our choices have caused many to turn a blind eye to what is actually evolving and disrespecting the remnant that dare speak of these worries about what is happening before our eyes.
“The world is still mobilizing, still ignoring the human, still counting bodies instead of souls, still thinking of poverty instead of the poor and of the masses instead of man.” Fulton J. Sheen
Prayer for Communion
“I care not if the accidents of my life remain, but the things that make me, me, take them, change them, transubstantiate them… That the Heavenly Father looking down from above, seeing Thee in me, might say to me as to Thee, ‘Thou art my beloved Son, in Thee, am I well pleased.’”
Archbishop Fulton Sheen
“As we enter Heaven, we will see them, so many of them, coming toward us and thanking us. We will ask who they are and they will say: ‘A poor soul you prayed for in purgatory.'” -Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
