It is no secret that society today is gravely disordered.
Marriage and the family, honored for centuries as the basic unit of culture, are under attack. Traditional notions of justice and fairness are being turned upside down. Even what it means to be a man or woman is being called into question.
Sadly, this is no less true of the Church.
In an age when the Church should be fearlessly proclaiming the Truth, calling the culture to account, it is, instead, compromised by a foolish attempt to adopt the world’s values. This has caused many who are simply trying to live out the true Catholic faith to be ridiculed, even cancelled altogether
So what is the solution to all of this?
While the problems we face are new,
the solution to them is not.
Whenever the people of God faced grave danger, whenever the dark clouds of disorder seemed to have the upper hand, the people of God gathered together to pray and do penance.
This is why we are calling all concerned citizens of Ave Maria to join us, every Saturday evening, for a public act of prayer and penance. Together let us petition the Lord of Heaven to intervene in our culture before the forces of evil overtake us. And let us especially make reparation for the sins that plague our Church, so that She might again proclaim the Truth with boldness, calling sinners to the One who can save them and set them free.
"... if my people, who are called by my name,
will humble themselves and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
2 Chronicle 7:14
