What we are seeing is the beginning of the end of civilized society as we know it in America.   We are, for the time being, still one nation under God , provided God does not interfere on our own self fashioned sense of morals and decency.  The word marriage is being re-defined by our government to accommodate lifestyles clearly forbidden in the bible. Conventional marriages themselves have become the exception  and in many cases only after a "trial marriage" of living together.  The guarantee of life mentioned in the Declaration of Independence  has been "qualified" to include only life that is not in the mother's womb.

Religions are being forced to practice what goes against their core beliefs. Bigotry against Christians and especially Catholics is the last prejudice that is acceptable in society. The Catholic Church itself is being touted as a hate group for its stance against gays. Television spews out a  steady diet of the occult, violence, promiscuity, irregular relationship and gender lifestyles and the like. One highly popular television program in particular is sending the wrong message to young girls. That message is that it is normal to swallow all self respect and to throw yourself at a guy and give him everything he wants and that it is not only acceptable but that it is expected and that the most aggressive of these girls are the ones who get their way or guy?  "Sexting" is a modern term which most high school age girls understand. God is systematically being removed from our schools, our athletic events, our courts and courthouses, our public squares and the public arena in general.  Christ's Mass has been adulterated to the word Xmas. The words Holy Days have been morphed into the word Holidays to mean sprees of self indulgence devoid of God in order not to 'offend anyone'. Being politically and socially  correct have become more important than proclaiming Truth. Many have swapped Sunday mornings to worship our God in favor of golfing, sports practice, sleeping-in, fishing or  for anything else that seems "more fun". Our new gods are whatever makes us feel good or gives us pleasure. And the new fashionable religion, is New Age feel good spirituality.

It would seem that the evil one has an upper hand in the world. But we need not worry for we know that the Father is placing all of Christ's enemies under His feet.  We know that Christ will triumph in the end. But I for one, am sad to see so many countless lost sheep looking for happiness at all costs and in all the wrong places. What they don't know is that true happiness can only be found in Christ. He created us to return to Him for eternal happiness. All the issues of this modern world surely present complex ministry challenges in the future for the Faithful to evangelize the world.

We are living in the end times. In your lifetime you will see the Two Witnesses and the Anti-Christ.
