From 'Mementoes of the Martyrs' : "...which provoked a Frenchman who was there to comment on the strange ways of the English, "those who are for the pope are hanged, those who are against him are burned:"                                               Saint John-Paul II wrote: "The fact that one can die for the faith shows that other demands of the faith can also be met."                                                 Cardinal Müller says, “For the real danger to today’s humanity is the greenhouse gases of sin and the global warming of unbelief and the decay of morality when no one knows and teaches the difference between good and evil.”                                                  St Catherine of Siena said, “We've had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues - I see the world is rotten because of silence.”                                                  Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”                                                Brethren, Wake up!

CHOOSE YOUR COMPANY!

From St Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort (from True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary):


MY dear brothers and sisters, there are two companies that appear before you each day: the followers of Christ and the followers of the world. Our dear Saviour's company is on the right, climbing up the narrow road, made all the narrower by the world's immorality. Our Master leads the way, barefoot, crowned with thorns, covered with blood, and laden with a heavy cross. Those who follow him, though most valiant, are only a handful, either because his quiet voice is not heard amid the tumult of the world, or because people lack the courage to follow him in poverty, sufferings, humiliations and other crosses which his servants must carry all the days of their lives. Do you listen to the voice of Jesus who, burdened with his Cross, calls out to you, "Come after me; anyone who will follow me will not be walking in the dark; be brave; I have conquered the world."

This is the company to which the followers of the Knights of Saint John have been called. Do we all choose it?

St Louis Marie, pray for us
