Pope John Paul II on the Coming Battle for Truth

We are, today, [standing] before the greatest combat that mankind has ever seen. I do not believe that the Christian community has completely understood it.


We are, today, [standing] before the final struggle between the Church and the anti-Church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel.

— Cardinal Karol Wojtila, November 9, 1976

    We just have to look around us… so much immorality before our eyes… abortion, suicide, euthanasia, pornograhy, TV & internet addiction, drugs, stain cellresearch, rape, murder, terrorism, so many forms of occultism…God is angry with his creation."I can see how headstrong these people are""My wrath shall blaze out against them and devour them" Ex32:9-10…. It is a spiritual warfare… We should recite our Rosary…. pray for true conversion, repentence, reconciliation, reparation for the sins of all mankind.

    If one is old enough to reflect back on what has gone on in the world since the 1960’s it makes JPii’s statement very prophetic. Confusion on implementation of Vatican II and all that has wrought, Vietnam, Pol Pot in Cambodia, genocide in Eastern Europe, Africa, the rise of secular humanism in Europe and the western hemisphere, the interconnecting of the world through globalization, the rise of atheistic China as the next world power … the list goes on. Thank God for being there for us who seek and try to worship him, follow him, and trust in Him.

    The anti-Church and anti-gospel lives in the White House and got a mandate from too many “catholics” because of economic problems. jmj Mick

    I knew that. But it scares the livin’ daylights out of me to realize that John Paul said it. He’d better not let go of our hands as we work our way through this. – Blessings – Rene

    I think we’re starting to understand it. It’s becoming clearer every day, don’t you think?
