faithful. Ten times under 10 different Emperors, the Roman empire tried to crush the Catholic Church and failed! Today, almost 2000 years later, Our Lord’s promises still stand unbroken. Jesus promised to be with His Church unto the end of time. Before ascending into Heaven, He said to the Apostles, “I am with you always even unto the end of the world.” The Church was personally founded by Christ and He gave His authority to St. Peter the Apostle. He promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against Her! If Our Lord had to promise that the gates of Hell would never overcome His Church, then that is precisely what He meant. He knew the gates of Hell would try to overcome Her. Our Lord promised that the Holy Spirit would lead and guide His holy Church. The Church is more than a human organization. It is a Divine Institution, established by God Himself in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ. No human power can ever destroy the Mystical Body of Christ. The trust and confidence we have in Jesus Christ, not only applies to the life of the Church, but also in our own daily lives in just the same way. If ever it should seem like Our Lord is abandoning us, we know that it is not true and it never will be! He is the Light of the world. He is the Light that drives darkness out of the world. He is the Peace that will calm every storm! It is discouraging to see so much ignorance and indifference toward the Church on the part of our people. In the Old Testament, God spoke to Isaiah and said, “My people are being destroyed due to lack of knowledge.” St. Paul wrote to the Christians in Corinth and said, “I find that many of you are without knowledge of God and I saith it to your shame.” It cannot be that way with us; we must know our Faith in order to be able to defend it and we must be able to hand that Faith down to our children. Parents have an especially grave moral obligation in this regard. You are always the first teachers of the Faith to your children. No one can take that God-given responsibility away from you. You must know your Faith, for what you do not have, you cannot give. God never left this world in darkness. God gave us the Light to see. He sent a Savior into the world. Our Lord and Savior founded a Church to be the means of our salvation, a Church which He endowed with the fullness of divinely revealed Truth and all the means of salvation, especially in the Seven Sacraments: a Church to be the vehicle to carry us to salvation: to carry us to Heaven; and that Church is: The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church!
