I have noticed a trend at least in my studies, that while I browse non-Catholic articles and books on various and sundry topics, I often encounter sources on many subjects that really hit the nail on the head in terms of accuracy, truth, understanding, etc; they seem truly Holy Spirit inspired. Topics could be political, social, mental health, history, spirituality, the media, you name it.
And then, inevitably, I will encounter a random virulent anti-Catholic comment, almost always off-topic and contributing nothing to the discussion, and never accurate. This is often in Protestant, but even in non-Chistian sources.
This used to bother me. It still hurts me of course, especially when they trash Jesus’ mom, but it doesnt confuse me like before. I would then doubt the source, but be concerned because it was right about so many other things.
I prayed a lot about it though, and now am no longer concerned. This just proves to me more that the Catholic Church is Jesus’ true church. Why else would intelligent and often Godly people feel so threatened by it that they randomly attack it? And the Devil is very sneaky with this, throwing the whopping lie that the Church is evil in with otherwise
pristinely factual sources. Good trick. Don’t see Satan working as hard to do that with ore institutions.
Would you call this an accurate and reasonable assessment of the situation? It helps me to get some validation about this
