“In the last few days the world has once again been given the horrifying and painful reminder that barbarism still exists today. France, Lebanon, and Nigeria have all been attacked by radical Islamists in recent days and over two hundred people have been murdered. In the last month, the number is well over a thousand. These attacks remind us of the global scourge of terrorism and that evil still dwells in men’s hearts, but they do not serve as any indication that they have won anything. The Devil knows he has lost and so he wastes away, taking human souls with him, on his pointless reign of terror on this side of the veil. It is important as we mourn the deaths of so many, that we remember this is first a spiritual war. We must engage in spiritual warfare in order for this war to be won. We must pray for the dead, hurt, mourning, and for our enemies. We must pray fervently for the conversion of souls. More than anything we must strive to live holy lives and to cling to Our Lord who dwells among us in the Holy Eucharist and Who unites us as one body.”
