Now is the time for heroes…

November 8, 2010

We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, the Gospel versus the anti-gospel. This confrontation lies within the plan of divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church must take up.

 Pope John Paul II

Brothers and Sisters this is the time for heroes, this is the time for saints. We are living in an unfaithful generation in a culture that is becoming increasingly secular and pleasure seeking. Each and every one of us is called to be part of a remnant of faithful disciples of the Divine lamb.

Now is the time for each of us to be respond to this call. It is now time to dare to strive for heroic holiness. The Lord is just waiting for us to respond to His call.

Now is the time to listen…

The Lord is waiting to communicate with us deeply in the silence of prayer. If you haven’t made time to listen before this is your chance. Work towards beautiful silent prayer which will become a fortress over time. Let the Lord guide us in this dark time. He can only be our guide if we take time to listen.

Behold, the Lord our God has shown us His glory and greatness, and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire; we have this day seen God speak with man and man still live. Deuteronomy 5:24

Now is the time to be holy…

Let us shed the sin in our lives. Now is the time to fight our carnal desires. Now is the time to tear from our hearts anything that is taking room away from the Lord. Do not treat sin like a check list to be finished; instead let us continually reexamine ourselves and “lay aside every encumberance of sin.”

So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:11

Now is the time to do battle…

Enter into that spiritual warfare that tears down strongholds and pushes back the enemy of our souls. Now is the time to take up the battle for souls in our prayer and actions. Claim souls for Christ and speak His message. Claim times and places for His saving work and preach God’s kingdom. Now is the time to battle against the enemy of our soul. Now is the time to strom the gates of hell to claim back what is the Lords. Take up your rosaries, your novena’s your praises, your devotions and every spiritual weapon and let us unleash the storm of fire and grace the Lord has waiting for us. Now is the time for battle!

“Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, “I am a warrior.” Joel 3:10

    Such a timely post, thank you.

    May Our FATHER grant us all a heart of deep prayer, a place and a time with HIM always.
    May HE grant us a loving heart
    to lead others to HIS Bosom.
    May HE be our strength to carry on
    until HE calls us all back Home.

    Yes, let us be heroes of, by and for LOVE,
    who is GOD Himself.
