At my college, I take my english courses in a special program which is community oriented. Bringing one’s entire person to a discussion of the subject matter and reading material is one of the basic principles for this program, and there is a band aspect to each meeting.
With the exception of a Buddhist friend of mine, I am the only student with a concrete belief in absolute truth, and who seems to display any great affection for God. (I know this because we had a “go-around” where everyone spent at least a few minutes speaking of themselves.) That, however, is not the difficulty.
No, the main difficulty is that my teacher is homosexual, an atheist, and is pro-abortion. At times will go off on a tangent, ranting about how he can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t support a woman’s “right to choose”. For example, at one point during one of his ramblings, I got so sick to my stomach that I nearly got up and left the room because I though I would vomit. This was because he spoke of how women were “liberated” by the “pro-choice” movement that was introduced by the feminists. Liberated? Refuse.
Now, I have no plans of dropping this course. I see this as an opportunity to witness, as a form of evangelization, and as the perfect time to suffer persecution like our Lord did (for the salvation of souls!). I must show forth the light of Christ; for in this world’s present darkness, the salt and light are we.
I ask for your prayers of guidance, deliverance from all diabolic oppression, and fortification in this time of distress and utter reliance upon the powers of Heaven.
Pax et bonum,
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pray for Us!
