Pope Benedict XVI: We Must Fight Evil!

Evil, Posing As Good, Seeks To Destroy The Moral Foundations Of Society!

News.VA, The Vatican Today

During a lunch with members of the College of Cardinals on Monday to mark the 7th anniversary of his pontificate,

Pope Benedict thanked his closest advisors for all their support during both the joys and the difficulties of his Petrine ministry.

The Pope began by thanking God for the joyous days as well as what he called ‘the dark nights’ and went on to reflect about the presence of evil in the world.

We can see, he said, how evil seeks to dominate our world, through cruelty and violence, but also in more subtle ways, posing as a force for good while destroying the moral foundations of society. 

Recalling the old fashioned use of the term ‘the Church militant’, the Pope said we must fight against evil and for this reason it is important to have friends to support us in this struggle.

Recalling also the words of Our Lord, ‘Take heart, I have overcome the world’, Pope Benedict said we are on the Lord’s team and therefore we will be victorious.

    I love this, of Pope Benedict XVI When He said
    “Recalling also the words of Our Lord, ‘Take heart, I have overcome the world’, we are on the Lord’s team and therefore we will be victorious.

    Amen, Amen, Amen

  • From my perspective as a psychologist these attacks weaken our sense of being as men – as males of our species, and, as we lose that, so do women lose their sense of being also.

    Thanks be to God for his Eucharistic presence.

    ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS!

  • There are lots of priests who are still faithful to our Lord, Jesus Christ, but there are also priests who are now living in secular life…
