…during our current war on terror was spoken at daily mass this morning.
the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you. John 16:2b-4a
Is this not the perfect description of those we are fighting? The radical Islamist? The Atta who flies a plane into a building thinking he brings glory to God? The suicide bomber who blows himself up at a checkpoint or a mosque? Not to mention those who are killed for converting to the Christian faith either by laws or by families trying to preserve “honor”.
Until we acknowledge as a nation that this is the face of our foe, we will continue to be vulnerable.
