Friends of the Rosary:

One of the dangers of today’s Christian life is the desire to please everyone. The enemies of the true faith have set in the world a false humanism, and a large part of Christianity has fallen into this trap. Sadly, this behavior seems to be promoted by too many prelates.

The point is that almost no one doesn’t want to be seen as rigid and doctrinal. We mostly prefer to live in the world and get along with those who are tactically against the faith. We cheat ourselves by saying that we are just trying a new and more charitable approach. In the reality, we are hiding, and even denying, our own personal sins, with the complicity of society.

Our mission here on Earth is not based on pleasing everyone nor fixing the problems of the world. Our exclusive mission is to be saints by pursuing personal holiness.

It seems that we Catholics have fallen in one of wickedness and snares of the Devil that we mention in our daily Saint Michael’s prayer.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
