  1. Fulton Sheen: The Fourth Great Crisis in the Church
    • Dead bodies flow downstream.  Only life bodies resist the current.
    • The Good Lord is testing us.
    • That is why the good Lord is testing us.
    • Test
      • He tested the Christian Russians with communism
      • He tested the Christian Germans with Nazism and how many failed
      • He is testing the Christian Westerners with Worldliness and how many are failing
      • He told the Jews I tested you in the wilderness for 40 years
        • And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. ( Deuteronomy 8:2 )
    • They did not love us from the beginning and that is why they left us
      • They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. ( 1st John 2:19 )
    • The souls that are leaving just failed the test
    • It only takes three weeks to go from Egypt to Canaan
    • Minority Report
      • And, that is what we are going to have in the Church, the minority report
      • The Minority Report of
        • The Minority Report of Sisters

        • The Minority Report of Laity
    • Gideon
      • God to said to Gideon “Your Army is too great
        • Judges 7
          • The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’
          • There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will thin them out for you there. If I say, ‘This one shall go with you,’ he shall go; but if I say, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not go.”
          • So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the Lord told him, “Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.” 6 Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink.
    • That is what we have in the Church
      • Our numbers are being thinned
    • Satan will sieve you like wheat
    • Why should men love the Church?
    • Live your life in the full consciousness of these testing
    • And, rally close to the heart of Christ
    • Many that will not want to hear, less they be called upon to change
    • if there is anything that needs to change it is Violence
      • The kingdom is
      • One thing that will need to be changed is violence
      • Just as we drop something the World picks it up
        • We drop celibacy, the protestant
        • We drop long garments, the girls start wearing Maxi-coat
        • We drop mysticism, the young pick up pharmaceutical drugs
        • We drop disciple
          • We need more police men
          • More prisons
        • We gave up the sword, someone else picks it up
    • Peace
      • Our Lord said that I have come to bring War and not peace
      • He never said the Word peace until after Easter
      • Peace is never
        • Peace is never corporate
        • Peace is never social
        • Until it is at the Individual level
      • Intersection
        • Social Peace, World Peace is never possible until it is in our hearts
        • When we are not right with God, we can not be right with humans
    • We can not lose
      • We can not lose in fact, as we have already won
    • Come down and we will believe
      • The only enemy we will have is the one that stays come down and we will believe
        • Let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. ( Matthew 27:42 )
      • Talk Politics, we will believe
      • Tell us about the Social Order

  1. General
    • “The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.”
    • “Patience is power.
      Patience is not an absence of action;
      rather it is “timing”
      it waits on the right time to act,
      for the right principles
      and in the right way.”
      ― Fulton J. Sheen
    • “If you don’t behave as you believe, you will end by believing as you behave.” ― Fulton J. Sheen
  2. Seven Words of Jesus and Mary: Lessons from Cana and Calvary
    • “Criticism of others is thus an oblique form of self-commendation. We think we make the picture hang straight on our wall by telling our neighbors that all his pictures are crooked.”
      ― Fulton J. Sheen, Seven Words of Jesus and Mary: Lessons from Cana and Calvary
  3. Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
    • “When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.” ― Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
    • “A woman gets angry when a man denies his faults, because she knew them all along. His lying mocks her affection; it is the deceit that angers her more than the faults.” ― Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
    • “The difference between the love of a man and the love of a woman is that a man will always give reasons for loving, but a woman gives no reasons for loving.” ― Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
    • “A teacher who cannot explain any abstract subject to a child does not himself thoroughly understand his subject; if he does not attempt to break down his knowledge to fit the child’s mind, he does not understand teaching.” ― Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
