The battle goes on, keep praying.

As we continue to be plagued with politicians who insist on supporting abortion, euthanasia, and all the accouterments of the culture of death, we look to our faith and the leaders of our church for moral support and encouragement. And even those leaders are under attack, as Fr. Corapi is, they need our support and prayers. Especially pray for the Pope, as his is the most difficult job; rescuing souls who are inundated on every side by a society hell-bent on moral destruction.

An excerpt from the book, Letters, by Fr. John Corapi

As we prepare to enter a new era in politics and perhaps society in general,keep something in mind: WE WIN! No matter what political party is in power at a given point in time, in the end those that remain faithful to Jesus Christ win the war. We may have to fight many battles outnumbered and even despised and looked upon as criminals and outcasts by a society that is unraveling and degenerating into something no one could have imagined. 

What matters is that we run the race to the finish line and fight the good fight. Don't "go with the flow," for as the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen reminds us, "Dead bodies float downstream." More than ever we shall have to be strong in the faith. Regular and worthy reception of the sacraments, constant prayer, and rigorous study of the faith is now essential, not merely a luxury. 

The front line and primary battle is going to be the fight for life: The dignity of every human life from the moment of conception to the last moment of natural life. If we lose that one, every other battle space will be compromised. If the government succeeds in establishing abortion as an inalienable "right", then the elderly and sick will be next. It will then be a short and slippery step to the government deciding who lives and dies regardless of their inherent human dignity. 

If you don't already pray the Rosary every day, please start at once. The prayer of the holy Rosary is the prayer of the holy Gospel, and that means it is the prayer of the Good News Who is Jesus Christ, the LIFE of the world. Many saints will be forged in the crucible of the coming years. Make sure you are among them.

Morale destruction is also the breakdown of the family unit. if one spouse is unfaithful, it hurts the entire family. the world is so morally bankrupt that its no wonder the Holy Father's job is alot harder than it used to be. with abortion constantly on the rise, euthanasia in some parts of the world becoming the norm, world wide news of yet another famous person having an affair, cultures clashing all over the world, well, the world wide moral banruptcy is unprecedented. the whole world needs the return of Jesus Christ. and until that day happens, all we can do as individulas, is pray for the whole world, and especially for our Pope, and the whole Church. get ourselves to Mass, be faithful to God. keep our selves morally upright. for then, we are an example to those who have sunk into immorality, and self destruction.
