Christians need a way through the coming years. Here’s a start By Danielle Zuccaro for Life Site News
What is the Christian response to the wasteland we find ourselves in?
What is the Christian response to the wasteland we find ourselves in? The situation in the U.S. right now is indeed a wasteland and a republic of chaos. With the compass not set on God, any government, company, family is bound to end up this way.
Now we find ourselves in this situation — the unfathomable has happened. Our country has been handed over to evil forces, and evil seems to reign. (It seemed to reign on Good Friday, too.) I keep thinking about all the unborn babies who won’t see the light of day and the Christians who will be persecuted because Christianity is not welcome here anymore. But lest we become downcast and depressed about the world around us, let us recall these foundational elements of our faith and the promises of Easter.
This is not where we belong.
We are to be in the world but not of it. Our homeland is not the U.S. or this world or this time (though we were “chosen for such a time as this”) — but we are destined for our heavenly homeland, the eternal Jerusalem, made possible by Our Resurrected Lord.
God hears every prayer and never breaks His promises.
He warned us that we would be persecuted because of His name. But if we endure, the Kingdom is ours! Every prayer will bring merit in some way.
Mary leads us in this valley.
Our Blessed Mother is leading us in this valley. After every rosary, we pray that she hear our prayers and lead us through “this Valley of Tears.” She is leading the way. And where does she always lead us? To her Most Blessed Son.
Barrenness always brings new life with God.
