Clash of the Kingdoms – Mark Mallet

JUST as one will be blinded by flying debris if he tries to stare into the furious winds of a hurricane, so too, one can be blinded by all the evil, fear and terror unfolding hour by hour right now. This is what Satan wants—to drag the world into despair and doubt, into panic and self-preservation in order to lead us to a “saviour.” What is unfolding right now is not another speed bump in world history. It is the final clash of two kingdoms, the final confrontation of this era between the Kingdom of Christ versus the kingdom of Satan…

We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. —Eucharistic Congress for the bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, PA, 1976; cf. Catholic Online (confirmed by Deacon Keith Fournier who was in attendance)

This writing is perhaps the most sobering thing I’ve ever written in a long while. Please, do not count the words, but count the grace it is that we still have time to sit together in Our Lady’s school. Let’s cover this writing and our minds with God’s protection as we pray three times:

Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ… save us and the whole world.
