Time for Catholics to stand up for truth


Rejoice and be glad! That is the attitude we should have concerning the recent  federal dictate concerning Catholic institutions and that they must pay for  sterilization and contraception in their health plans.

Why rejoice in this gift? Simple: Now is the time for all Catholics to stand and deliver the truth of the Word of God! Let the whole world know exactly why abortion, sterilization and contraception are wrong.

As this country has practically eliminated God from its heart with the lie of separation of church and state, the country is now advocating evil in the last state of the truth and trying to bring down the Catholic Church. We know it will not succeed, but trials and tribulations are in the future and the time for good Catholics to “go to the lions” for the honor and glory of God is present. That is why it is called a gift.

God bless you all. Remember, pray at 8 p.m. a short prayer for our country and a rosary on Sunday and every day for life! Remember St. Paul: “Pray unceasingly.” Stay on course.
