Friends of Our Lady,

Why 2,000 years ago did the Christian martyrs prevail and win over their enemies, while we today cannot prevail in the coliseums of today’s society? Only a few stood in the coliseums while throngs looked and hissed at them, yet they prevailed over the pagans’ darkness and conquered. Why did they change insurmountable numbers of people and we cannot? Can we not overcome darkness? Can we take our Nation back? This age has not understood that the present weakness of Christians parallels the growth of and loss of religious freedom, and oppression by government. Does this generation even understand government’s role? We are experiencing what happens when we forget our role as Christians, and government’s role. Simply, those early Christian martyrs were living their faith, and their lives were a living witness, a testimony of Christian principles. They had power we do not possess.


This is explained more fully in what was written in Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping.
 

 

“How is it that the same darkness we see today in general society was not able to cast its darkness over the light of Christians of bygone days? And yet today, the Christian light is overshadowed by darkness. By their very nature, when Christian principles are lived, it is an impossibility for the light of Christ not to shine and overpower darkness. A contradiction then exists because if we are truly the light, we would be lighting up the darkness. So the truth is that the prevailing darkness is a testimony against US, not against darkness. We are now disabled, paralyzed, and unable to act. Thankfully, there is an uprising among people of the Judeo/Christian faiths who are discontented with the godlessness of our nation and its present political system. We, therefore, must put our own house in order and be active and ready to seize the moment that God gives us to take back America and place it back on the foundation of our Fathers’ dreams, our Fathers who first gave us this “homeland.”

“Americans are no longer schooled in the fact that the Founders did not like government, and that the Constitution’s purpose was to chain the government, not the people. We have lost our understanding that government must always be checked and kept small by the people, lest the people become oppressed and enslaved by it. Whether they be at the local, state, or national level, governments always tend to be against the people. Thomas Jefferson said:

“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government. So let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” 90
