Live Not By Lies

In front of life, I seek the positive, I try to pay attention and listen, to help build up what is good, and to share the sufferings of others.

I do not condemn anyone.

But there is some Evil Thing--"THE LIE"--working deeply in this culture, and we must stand and fight it, entrusting ourselves entirely to Jesus, and with love in our hearts.

It must be a love for every human person, which means an unrelenting rejection of this evil which afflicts the human person. In our society, there is open distortion and manipulation in the media, in politics, and in the laws themselves that emanate from powers within the government.

The prophetic words of Alexander Solzhenitsyn apply to our culture today: "Live not by lies!" Relying on the grace of Christ, let us each--according to our own vocations--fight "THE LIE". We can only do this with Jesus, and Mary.

Jesus I trust in You!

Your post resonates with me John. I feel at times that I am at complete odds with this world. What this world seems to fight for what it says is a right, is in such cases ( the issue of human life), are diametrically opposed to what I know of as truth.
I have prayed and supported pro life causes for many years. I watch the marches on DC and now even in secular Europe. But I also am not naive to believe that the world will change.
At the same time, I believe that the battles that we are engaged in here are a part of the cosmic battle ..which we are taught has been won by Christ.
So we should be happy warriors, even though I can feel very heavy hearted with the state of our world.

Best,

Dan
