Benedict XVI: The “Spiritual Power of AntiChrist”

Benedict XVI: “The true threat for the Church, and thus for the Petrine service … comes from the universal dictatorship of apparently humanistic ideologies. Anyone who contradicts this dictatorship is excluded from the basic consensus of society. One hundred years ago, anyone would have thought it absurd to speak of [The rainbow revolution]. Today those who oppose it are socially excommunicated. The same holds true for abortion and the production of human beings in the laboratory.

“Modern society intends to formulate an anti-Christian creed: Whoever contests it is punished with social excommunication. Being afraid of this spiritual power of the Antichrist is all too natural, and what is truly needed is that the prayers of entire dioceses and of the world Church come to the rescue to resist it.”

“If discouragement overwhelms you, think of the faith of Joseph; if anxiety has its grip on you, think of the hope of Joseph; if exasperation or hatred seizes you, think of the love of Joseph, who was the first man to set eyes on the human face of God. — Benedict XVI

Throughout this journey into the heart of Catholic England, Pearce passionately evokes the “Christ-haunted” history of England. Drawing upon English Catholic writers of the twentieth century such as Belloc, Chesterton, Tolkien, and others, he presents a picture of a Catholic England that never completely disappeared.”– Paul Baxa
