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.
“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
Archbishop Fulton Sheen always knows the best way to say it!
“There is always hope for the man who knows that he is doing wrong; but there is no hope for the man who is doing wrong and calls the wrong right. The Catholic gets off the road like anyone else, but he never throws away the map.” Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Wartime Prayer Book)
“We do know that at the end of time, when the great conflict between the forces of good and evil takes place, Satan will appear without the Cross, as the Great Philanthropist and Social Reformer to become the final temptation of mankind.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Life of Christ)
Did you know that I was silent seven times at My trial? I spoke as a Shepherd; I was silent as a sheep. I spoke as Teacher; I was silent as the Lamb. My silence disturbed Pilate, but what could I say? I was guilty. I was carrying your sins. I could not make excuses.”
Fulton J. Sheen
