The tragic event in a Colorado movie theater has shocked Americans back into reality as to how fast our society is unraveling. Many people blame the American economy for our problems; what is really breaking down America is society’s disregard for morality. Consider these recent headlines in the news.
The #1 book on the New York Times fiction best-seller list has been "Fifty Shades of Grey," the erotic novels by E.L. James described as “Mommy Porn.” The sexually explicit trilogy is a phenomenon among young American girls as well as grandmothers in their eighties.
Since when have you seen stories about human beings eating other humans making the headlines?
Sexting and sexual abuse is rampart in high schools across the country as students seek approval in the wrong places from their classmates and teachers.
With a stagnant U.S. economy, America faces the very real possibility of an economic collapse in the not-too-distant future, but morally we are already scraping bottom. Could there be a link between our economic decline and our disregard for God’s laws?
Our society has become so desensitized that sins that once scandalized us are now accepted as the norm.
The problem is that we are a nation no longer directed by the Ten Commandments and moral teachings of Christ’s Church, but rather by the whims and edicts of socialists and secular humanists.
America boarded the Titanic many years ago and we are now colliding with the “iceberg of moral indifference.” The inability to keep the economic ship afloat may well foretell our demise as a world superpower, but does it also mean we will personally suffer for turning our backs on God?
The Mother of God appeared in Fatima to warn us of all of these dangers; and today She still gives us Her maternal solution on how to avoid the “icebergs” that are fast approaching. She warned that communism was going to be the punishment that God would send mankind if they didn’t stop offending Him.
Now, more than ever is the time to take her counsel’s; the amendment of life and the daily recitation of the rosary for the conversion of sinners. Everyone sees the “icebergs” ahead and for those who claim they don’t see this reality; remember the hardest person to wake up is the one who pretends he is sleeping!
