Beloved, the article below from LifeSiteNews by Faustina Bowen captures everything needed for families not only to survive in this hostile wilderness, but to thrive. The Lord is on our side and will never cease to supply our every need as we walk with Him and live for Him as the true soldiers of Christ we are called to be.

Strong families will be the ones to save the Church during these troubling times
Families draw their power from the fact that they are the ones who really control the future. Fathers and mothers have the power and the duty to raise the next generation of soldiers for Jesus Christ.
“No matter how heroic some Jesuits are today, the Church of Rome has lost to others the invaluable support and services of the one body of men that, in its pristine form, could have halted the destruction wrought by those hurricanes of change that began in the sixties… What emerged… was liberal minded partisanship that quickly solidified into a totalitarianism of thought, an approach so dogmatic that what at the beginning seemed a refreshing clarity of vision, quickly became a trap of self-righteous, self-justifying moralism. All who disagreed were considered to be immoral. Conservatism or traditionalism was not tolerated. Those who were guilty of either suffered… Some remained Jesuits, but took refuge among more tolerant clerical colleagues in parish work and elsewhere… The Jesuits could once more have made the difference between a Church in shambles… But the Jesuits will not be the ones to save the day now for the Roman Catholic Church.”
Do these excerpts from Malachi Martin’s book The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church sound at all like what we are witnessing today, not in just the Society of Jesus, but the Church as a whole under a Jesuit leader? To me, the tactics used against anyone who questions the regime are strikingly similar to this description of what happened to many Jesuits after the Second Vatican Council. But since I don’t want this to be a depressing article, I want to focus on the last sentence of the quote, “But the Jesuits will not be the ones to save the day now for the Roman Catholic Church.” This will, of course, bring up this question: Who will it be then? Now, before you start thinking of religious orders, look much closer to yourself. To your families. I can’t help but feel like good, strong families will be the ones to save the Church during this troubling time in history.
