"Wake Up America! Wake Up . . . and Repent!"
- Fr. John Corapi
During a recent journey through the American midwest, we drove near Greensburg, Kansas. As you may recall, this town of 1,400 souls was almost entirely wiped clean off the map in 2007 by a 1.7 mile wide EF-5 tornado in the dark of night. 95% of the homes, the hospital, and fire department were devastated. The same thing happened in 2008 to Parkersburg, IA.
As Fr. Corapi put it immediately after the 2001 terrorist attacks, "if America doesn't shape up, it's only gonna get worse". It appears he was right.
With the threat of national socialism, abortion remaining legal and on demand, same sex marriages continuing to be legalized state after state, rising teen pregnancy rates, etc. . . those humans humbly struggling through life using God's blueprint, the Church, may be caught in the crossfire during this tribulation - where God brings good out of evil. Fr. Corapi also put it bluntly at a Conference before proceeding with his talk further, "to those Catholics here who dismiss the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, we leave you behind". For the rest, all we can do is pray, do good, avoid evil, and fathers . . . prepare.
