Monday Musings- "The End of Christendom"

I am a big fan of Archbishop Sheen. It is a shame that so many Catholics do not know more about him and his writings. 

The following quotation is a powerful reminder of an unsettling truth: our Loving Lord has placed prophets here among us but we have ignored them.

What a different world this would be had we listened to the prophetic voice of Archbishop Sheen and the other messengers God has sent:

[ I ran across this particular quotation yesterday on Tony Agnesi's blog - a place you should visit.]


  1. Thank you for sharing this. All I can say is: wow.

  2. Thank you, Michael! I had not heard or read this quote before. He surely spoke the truth. I am with Nancy,. Wow.

  3. Sadly so true. In speaking to the cardinals at a luncheon, Pope Benedict, now emeritus, said: "Today the phrase ecclesia militans is somewhat out of fashion but in fact we can understand ever more so that it is true, that it contains within it the truth. We see how evil wishes to dominate in the world and that it is necessary to fight against evil. We see that it does so in so many ways: cruelty, through the different forms of violence, but even disguised as good and thereby undermining the moral foundations of society." Ralph Martin and Scott Hahn point to our good fortune to be alive in these times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czjaZmyMiH0
