Our society’s “destructive tolerance of evil…requires warriors — ready to risk their reputations,
their names, even our very lives, to stand for the truth.” ~ Jim Caviezel
FOCUS, the Catholic ministry for college students, recently had their conference near Chicago. A surprise speaker, actor Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, entered the stage to a standing ovation.
Caviezel pulled no punches as he called on these young adults to rise up and be the warriors “ready to risk their reputations, their names, even our very lives, to stand for the truth.”
Set yourself apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints. You weren’t made to fit in, you were born to stand out. For in our country now, we are only too happy to go with the flow. We have a shrine to freedom now, where all choices are equal, no matter what the consequence are. Do you honestly think this is true freedom?
Can society exclude moral truth and moral reasoning? Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exists not to do what you like, but having the right to do what you ought. … Freedom from sin, freedom from your weaknesses, freedom from this slavery that sin makes out of all of us. That is the freedom that is worth dying for.
After quoting the famous Braveheart speech, Caviezel concludes with …
Every man dies, but not every man truly lives! You! You! You! We all must fight for that authentic freedom and live, my friends … by God, we must live! And with the Holy Spirit as your shield and Christ as your sword, may you join St. Michael and all the angels in SENDING LUCIFER AND HIS HENCHMEN RIGHT BACK TO HELL WHERE THEY BELONG!!! (Crowd erupts in applause)
