Description

HOW USELESS TO KEEP MY HEART PURE AND WASH MY HANDS IN INNOCENCE WHEN I AM ATTACKED DAY AFTER DAY, AND MOCKED EVERY MORNING. But if we should think like that, we would abandon the faith of our Fathers. Yes, though we are attacked by liberal activists from without and by apostasy from within, the trueChurch—that is, the body of those who remain faithful to Church tradition—weeps, and she prays, because she knows the fate of those who oppose God. Our enemies might fear love, and they can push love away, but they can’t kill it. And so the battle against them cannot be fought with politics; it requires a pro­found personal struggle against the immorality of popular culture. The battle must be fought in the service of God with pure and chaste lifestyles lived from the depths of our hearts in every moment. With compassion and clarity, Raymond Lloyd Richmond, Ph.D. explains the psychological and spiritual aspects of a growing battle with evil that looms in front of every Christian today.
