In the Seventeenth Century, Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser prophesied about our time: "During this period, many men will abuse of the freedom of conscience conceded to them. It is of such men that Jude the Apostle spoke when he said: 'These men blaspheme whatever they do not understand; and they corrupt whatever they know naturally as irrational animals do... They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguements."
What would possess people to dress as devils and throw condoms at Catholic pilgrims during World Youth Day festivities in Australia? What motivates such hatred? Is it not easy to see that such hatred is inflamed by the fires of Hell? What happens internally soon manifests itself externally. Hence anti-Catholic extremists dressed up as devils.
By our speech, our conduct and our dress, we reveal to the world who we are. Pray for those angry and confused souls who have embraced hatred of Christ's Mystical Body.
