Friends of the Rosary,

We all are surrounded by bad influences. People who want to take our faith down. What can we do?

First, we need to pray for them and wish them well. Note that we are also referring to them when we ask Jesus in the Fatima prayer to lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.

As children of God, we are part of the same human family. And in every family, there are bad apples. We don’t judge nor condemn anyone, because we are imperfect too. However, loving of neighbor doesn’t mean that we must be friends, mostly because these negative people don’t want to amend their lives.

We’d love to bring them to the truth, but we cannot force them. In this event, we need to keep them at a distance. We don’t want to put our own soul in danger.

And a little advice, if I may. Grab your Rosary on your pocket or purse, and ask the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Michael the Archangel to defend us in this battle against the enemies of the faith.
