Don’t know Robert Cardinal Sarah. Since there are so many books to choose from, I probably won’t get around to his book. Still, I think about that last quote.
“Do we Christians, priests, bishops have some reason for existing other than to stand before
God and to lead others to him?
It is time to teach this!
It is time to put it into practice!
The one who prays is saved, the one who does not pray is damned, St Alphonsus said.
I want to insist on this point,….”
We are born to die, but where do we go from death? How do we escape death unless we accept God’s promise and obey Him? Yet what are we teaching each other? What are we teaching our children?
“Despite the violence of the attacks that she may suffer,
the Chruch will not die. This is the Lord’s promise,
and His word is infallible.”
…theologians amuse themselves by deconstructing dogmas and emptying morality
of its profound meaning
Relativism is the mask Judas disguised as an intellectual.

two pages of his introduction and since then, the highlighter I was using has run dry.
The following snippets offer some very powerful words…words offered to
to the collective body of Christian believers who are finding themselves bewildered by the
attacks taking place on the bride of Christ, that being his Church.

Jesus said to Peter, “the gates of hell will not stand against it” (the church). Gates don’t attack, gates defend. The church should be attacking the gates of Hell. Instead, most just stand by courting popularity or withdrawing. Prayer should be the weapon battering those gates down.
Thanks for the link to Cookie’s Post.
It seems a lot of people are thinking about the power of prayer lately.
Yesterday I wrote a post about prayer and in the afternoon saw the move Breakthrough” based on a true story.
Recommend everyone who either believes or does not believe in prayer see the movie.
After see the movie and reading the news today, I wrote a second post about prayer.

all I can say is, WOW. Incredibly powerful, and well done.
I’ll be thinking about it for a long, long while.
