'Prepare to fight, also to suffer'
WARSAW, Poland (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Raymond Burke says Church leaders have failed to defend Catholic moral teachings. He's also calling on the faithful to fight against moral evil, and be prepared to suffer.
In an interview with Polish conservative weekly Sieci, Cdl. Burke talked about how the laity need to stand up and defend morality in the modern world.
Above all, be brave. Do not let the idea overwhelm you that we can do nothing. Prepare to fight, also to suffer. This suffering can be both physical and social, eg ridicule, mockery, isolation, indifference. But there may also be persecution and imprisonment. But we must fight for what is our life, which is our eternal life. We cannot allow the Church to go in a false direction.
About the crisis in the Church, the cardinal said, "The situation in the Church is very alarming, first of all, because the fundamental truths of faith are undermined, put into question."
He went on to lament that "there is no strong leadership from Rome that could explain and clarify these matters."

Which would you say is more devoted to Mary, Poland or the Philippines?
He’s talking about the militant homosexual agenda. Everyone is afraid to take them on.
For example, why is the US soccer team wearing homosexual rainbow colors on their uniforms? Trump should order an end to this crap.
How would you even answer such a question? Professional polling? Can it even be quantified? It seems opaque.
Anecdotal evidence, number of festivals, homilies on the subject...
I suppose it could be researched, then, but doubt that it has. (Odd thought: I read somewhere that at the time of the Russian Revolution, 101 years ago, there were -— could it be? -— 20,000 churches, shrines, monasteries and convents in Russia named in honor of Mary. It seems high, but that’s the way I remember it.) Why do you ask?
We forget that Mary was Jesus FIRST disciple as well as mother.
Wake me up when Burke grows a spine and calls a spade a spade: Francis.
