The Initial Objective was and STILL IS : SAVE SOULS

We must unite in prayer and penance for all priests, religious and clergy and even those in formation. "May Almighty God grant them the grace required to be the servants He desires!"
Even for us lay folks ... we too are servants and not exempt from sharing and teaching the Faith. We need to know with CERTAINTY what we believe and WHY. St. Paul exhorts us to always have a REASON for our belief .... DO WE?
How much thought have we given it in today's fast paced, ME FIRST world?

The time is coming and already here when we need to know what side of the fence we're standing on ... we also need to be close by as our friends and loved ones are shaken from their seated position on that fence when the Mighty Hand of God shakes it!!
The fence will soon shake mightily .. have we done all we can to strengthen each other and in charity, show our friends and family the right path?
Please God that we waste no more time in this ... may Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!

But pray hard for our bishops, priests and clergy to have the backbones to stand STRONG in full TRUTH and preach the Gospel in season and out of season whether it's convenient or inconvenient. They need our help as we need theirs. Many today have been caught up in the world as well and value more their position and place with men than they do God's approval. Power, prestige and prosperity have taken over the piety that's so needed today in clergy and lay alike.
We need to be IN the world but not OF the world. All would do well to meditate on this.
