The devil knew his time is getting shorter and shorter every minute (cf. Rev 12:12), and so because with his possession is the world’s vainglory (cf Luke 4:6), the devil will try to pull back people from the Church in the most deceitful way: the illusion of the boob tube and the mass media of the world.
Recently I had seen the trailer of the upcoming movie, “2012”, and what really struck me is the fact that the production had really paid bucks for the effect of the Vatican being utterly destroyed with the Pope and bishops and the catholic people within it. Yes, Satan’s aspirations are finally materializing on the blockbusters. And no wonder, for Satan is the major actor for the world’s desolation since the beginning. He is the major adversary throughout the drama of the ages.
The Catholic Church had not only been attack with anti-catholic arguments. There’s worse than that. The Catholic Church had been attacked with fictitious blows inside and out. As we can recall the Da Vinci Code and the Angels and Demons, which smacks the Catholic Church in portraying that the Church is cunning and is the greatest conspirator of all time. Now in the upcoming movie 2012, it smacks the Church on its impotence to intervene with the world’s brutal fate. Every anti-catholic bias degrades the image of the Church and our light is forcefully trapped inside the bowl of biased secularism.
It really surprises me in every way. The world is eager to resolve the Islamic hatred against a Danish cartoonist. The world watches Buddhist monks pray and supports them. People are very cautious not to anger the Muslims and the Hindus. But when it comes to Catholicism, pro-Catholics are pushed away to the corner for the show is about to start.
They’re afraid of a viral pandemic, but aren’t afraid of a more deadly pandemic that infests the internet. There were articles against the Pope and the Church, blasphemies against the sacred and fighting against God Himself. They see the Catholic Church as true, yes, but they see it as a parasite that sucks the world’s freedom to pursue evil. True is what the Revelation had said, that peple will rejoice over our deaths for the Church torment them (cf Rev 11:10)
Now is the time to fight the steadily rising anti-catholic biases. With Christ and the family of heaven in our side, let us populate the internet with Catholic movements and groups that will fore-awaken others of the Great Tribulation that is churning up. Let all of us individually be living stones that will stack one upon another to form the new wall of the New Temple under siege. Christ is our corner stone and Peter is the rock. We are meant to be tormentors of evil like rocks do to the Old Covenant’s adulterers. Now, let ourselves be rocks against them and let Jesus Christ, the man without sin, throw the first stone. Let each one of us be a force of the Kingdom.
God bless us all, Catholics
