On this the first feast Day of St. John Paul II, I remember with gratitude to God the pontificate of this Great pope. All the gifts he has given the church in his writings and through the witness of his life. I thank God for allowing me to live my life during his long pontificate. The Fatima Pope and the Pope of God's Mercy.
Let us not forget what he has left us as an inheritance his many writing and encyclicals teaching us and giving us the tools to fight the battles for truth and religious freedom within various national governments and even within the church. Please take the time to meditate on his writings and life. He is a sign of HOPE Truth and Mercy God gave to our generation. Persevere in prayer and Hope of Gods mercy for the trying times we are now experiencing in the abandonment of Christian morality and truth in governments and by some members of the hierarchy.
We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously.
