Challenge of the Super Friends
The November 10th issue of Time had an article about a group of prominent and wealthy homosexuals, called The Cabinet [I guess The Closet was in use] who have banded together to use their money and connections to support GLBT organizations and to advance the leftist causes that support the usual favorite causes of these groups. Let's cut to the chase and say that most of what this group favors are contrary to Christian morals.
The article likened this group to a "gay Super Friends..a homosexual justice league that can swoop [I can't believe they didn't use "sashay"!]in wherever anti-gay candidates are threatening [to win?] and finance the [their words] good guys.
It occurs to me to wonder where are the REAL good guys with money? With a few prominent exceptions, there are not too many baptized believing CATHOLICS who have the money to further Christ's agenda.
Why is that?
My theory is that the real Christians follow the true Gospel message and they've given most, if not all of their money, to support Holy Church and its mission. They give their money to people in need. They don't give their money to further their personal agenda or the agenda of Satan.
Our forefathers, by and large, did not have a lot of money either. Yet, they sacrificed portions of what little money they had to the Church. Their humble contributions created missions and supported convents and monasteries. They also gave their time and their talents, with it they built cathedrals and schools.
Friends: In the end, we will not win this war with money. We will win this war by courageous example, by modeling the life of Christ, by using our words and our prayers-by teaching. By being unafraid to spread the Gospel, to believe and support the Magisterium, to use the Sacraments.
Aquaman was only useful when there was water nearby. We may not have the ability to send sea creatures into battle, but our ability to do battle is not limited to water. We are flexible. Armed with Christ, we can fight no matter what the circumstances. We need to be unafraid to engage.
