The 4th Sunday of Easter is typically known as Good Shepherd Sunday. The Catholic Church has been divided among members of the clergy for the last 50 years. Look at what has happened. We have priests who are willing to preach the truth without saturation. As a result, they get canceled. Look at what has happened to priests like Father James Altman, Father Frank Phillips, and many others who paid the price from their lukewarm superiors for speaking the truth.
It is fitting that in the Letter from St. Peter, he wrote, "If you are patient when you suffer for doing what is good, this is a grace before God. For to this, you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps."
The Catholic Church is not meant to be a membership club. Instead, it is supposed to move the world. Sadly, the clergy who feel comfortable preaching half-truths are leading their flock to damnation. Look at members of the Body of Christ like Fr. James Martin, Cardinal Blaise Cupich, the German bishops who want to bless sin, the list goes on. They must repent and recant what they have been preaching before it is too late.
In the first reading for this Sunday, St. Peter calls those gathered to "Save yourselves from the corrupt generation". We are seeing so much bad happening in this world. Our job is to raise good Catholic men to lead. Men who are not afraid to look at what is higher instead of down. We need men who are willing to support and provide for their families. We need men to follow the example of St. Joseph in their daily lives.
The Catholic Church needs men to answer their call of accepting their masculinity to turn the tide. We need men to step into the breach. We need men to be public witnesses of the faith. We need men to be present in the homes of families. We need men to give their yes to the Holy Priesthood, lead their flock to greatness, and at times lay down their lives when fighting off the wolves.
To those men canceled for protecting and defending the truth, the faithful are in solidarity. Those who are scared, do not be afraid.
True manhood is not measured by what they have. It is measured by how they can give and lay down their lives for others.
Godly men are key to saving the Catholic Church from the corrupt generation. Man Up
