Venerable Fulton Sheen once said, “The world’s greatest need is great men, someone who will understand that there is no greater conquest than victory over oneself; someone who will realize that the real worth is achieved, not so much by activity, as by silence; someone who will seek the Kingdom of God and His justice, and put into actual practice the law that it is only by dying to the life of the body that we ever live to the life of the spirit; someone who will brave the taunts of a Good Friday to win the joy of Easter Sunday; who will, like a lightning-flash, burn away the bonds of feeble interests which tie down our energies to the world; who, with a fearless voice, like John the Baptist, will arouse our enfeebled nature out of the sleek dream of unheroic repose; who will gain victories, not by stepping down from the Cross and compromising with the world, but who will suffer in order to conquer the world. In a word, what we need are saints, for saints are the truly great men … I assume without further ado that the grace of God is the one thing necessary, and that God will give that grace to those who do His will.”
Cardinal Burke is the Spiritual Head of this worldwide Holy League movement, and I think we all agree with him when he says, “What the world needs is men in a state of grace.” That is the motivation behind this movement. The time is now to gather men together across this planet to humbly kneel before our King in Adoration; to purify our souls in the Sacrament of Confession, and to build a band of brothers, resolved to stand together as a “God Strong” force to be reckoned with, against those forces looking to destroy the souls of our loved ones.
The idea is simple, but profound, men. Get some men together and contact your pastor. Ask to schedule a once a month Holy Hour of Adoration, Confession, followed by a “band of brothers” social. That’s it!! Do this, and watch the fruit that is born from this blueprint for building an army of supernaturalized men!!
