CATHOLICS!! Stay informed politically, get involved, vote prolife and live in a state of grace!!
Interesting, and sad comments on today' show. The Terry and Jesse Show (especially Romero) blithely advises its fans/listeners to just focus on evangelism/evangelization and not politics now that the "election is stolen" and seemingly over. Someone please tell them that Pope Francis' latest video hinders\attacks evangelism\evangelization (see Church Militant post: https://www.churchmilitantdotcom/news/article/popes-epiphany-video-ampli...). Maybe they can inform us from their golden source (their words, paraphrased) of radio gab about how the average Catholic should evangelize in the Pope Francis Church going forward? It's too bad actually -- Romero seems to have lost a "fighting spirit" that I think he had before. There's a fight montage of him somewhere on Youtube... Sure seems like it's NOT the "same" guy?! Perhaps his "I don't care" statement is like Roberto Duran's "no mas" after all? I'm not attacking the guy... I happen to think we need Catholic "leaders" who are not afraid to fight for holy mother Church and for us Catholics who have to deal directly with the evils (including political evils) that have invaded her! In other words, get back in the fight or finish your "quit" and let someone else do that daily show. I have given to Virgin Most Powerful Radio on occasion... no more! I am moving the limited donation $$ I have to Church Militant, who don't (and won't) say I don't care or no mas to calling out the political evils that have INVADED AND INFECTED the Catholic Church on numerous levels until, God willing, the Church becomes the heart\soul of American society as she should be!
Take a deep breathe. Ok, here is the point I am making, don't get caught up in the heresy of "Americanism" where american Politics becomes the center of your life. A true Catholic must follow the "divine commission" (cf. Matt 28:19-20) and is obligated to usher in the 'Social Kingship of Christ' into every nation and every individual heart' (Pope Pius XI - 1925). By the way, Pope Francis didn't tell me to evangelize, Our Lord Jesus Christ did, He is God and He is a King.
A Catholic should understand that we don't put our trust in Politics:
*Psalm 118:8-9 "It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes."
*Psalm 146:3-6 "Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them- he remains faithful forever."
The Catholic Church is a supernatural institution. Government is a natural institution. The Church "is the pillar and foundation of truth" (1 Tim 3:15).
· I am a Catholic Christian first and foremost – a disciple of Jesus Christ.
· Secondly – I am a conservative who believes in traditional Christian morals.
· Third – I am Republican. This one can change at any time - if the party attacks my Catholic Religion, I’m gone (just like I left the democrat party 33 years ago). However, number 1 and 2, can never change.
We need to stay informed politically, get involved, vote prolife and live in a state of grace. This is a corrupt and fallen world, I'm telling my listener "don't put your hope in this world or politics or men in this world." A Catholic believes in these timeless words: JESUS – I TRUST IN YOU!
