5/9 Church Persecuted

Church Persecuted  The move of a nation or a culture toward Marxism/communism is not an accidental happenstance that suddenly appears; rather it is a planned and orchestrated attempt to take control of the government, society, religion, and education.   The takeover of religion and education is currently happening in our public schools where nihilism is the religion allowing everyone to believe what he or she likes. The late Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete wrote that American nihilists “believe in everything and anything all at once. It’s all good!” Right or wrong is not established by any truth, but by whatever a person feels at that time. Mothers and fathers of students in these schools must counter this by anchoring their children in the tenets of their Catholic faith.  This weekend, the parish second collection is for Parish Special Needs. This year Father De Celles has designated it for scholarships to Catholic schools to help our families provide a faith-filled education for their children. It’s an opportunity for the parish family to help other families. It also affords parents an opportunity to reflect on their responsibilities in the education of their children. “The right and duty of parents to give education is essential, since it is connected with the transmission of human life…it is irreplaceable and inalienable, and therefore incapable of being entirely delegated to others or usurped by others.” (Familiaris Consortio, 36)
