Omnia possum in eo qui me confortat - Phil 4:13

I can do all things in Him who strengthens me. Why aren't our priests leading such marches through our cities? Where are the Corpus Christi processions?

Issue the battle cry! Let's take back our cities!

Those who walk in the Spirit know no fear. What are we waiting for? The Lord Jesus waits. He grows tired of our excuses:

I’m not holy enough:
Is 6:1-9; Lk 5:1-11

I’m afraid I will fail:
Ex 14:10-31; Lk 15

I’ve made mistakes and I’m a sinner:
Jn 21:15-23; Mt 9:9-13; Lk 7:36-50

I’m too young:
1 Sam 3:1-18; Jer 1:4-10; Lk 1:26-38

I’m not talented enough:
1 Sam 17:32-51; Lk 1:26-38

I want to have a family:
Gn 12:1-3; Mt 12:46-50; Mk 10:28-30

I’m afraid of making a permanent commitment:
Ruth 1:15-17; Mt 28:16-20

I’m afraid of public speaking:
Ex 4:10-17; Jer 1:4-10

I’m not smart enough:
2 Cor 4:7-18; Ex 4:10-17

I’m afraid of being alone:
Ex 3:4-22; Lk 1:28-38

I want to be happy:
Ps 37:4; Mt 5:1-12; Jn 10:10; Mk 10:28-31

I can do all things in Him who strengthens me. Do we really believe that? Then there are no obstacles we can't overcome in His holy name.

We need to be the Church Militant not the Church Cowardly.

If an 87 year old Protestant can do it, why can't our clergy? This elderly man, a true and devout Christian, has set an example for all to follow. God bless him.

I hope there are priests reading this who will take some initiative. Our parishes here in Worcester are dying. There doesn't seem to be any vitality left. Just a bunch of strangers who congregate once a week and who can't even look at one another. When I try to give someone the sign of peace they almost invariably refuse to take my hand and look at me like I'm a nut job. Hardly the Holy Spirit at work.
