These days, people say "Season's Greetings," which, when you think about it, means nothing. It's like walking up to somebody and saying "Appropriate Remark" in a loud, cheerful voice.

Preparing my Children for Martyrdom

I was looking at my children in Mass today and a horrifying thought occurred to me. If I do my job well as a parent, my children may end up persecuted and/or in jail. That may be the best I can hope for at this point in 21st century America.

I completly agree ! Most of the people in my church, family and friends are more concern in saving the dolphins in Japan than in speaking out against abortion .

Had this coversation with the family for YEARS!!!!!

We are MARIANISTS!!!..

WE SO LOVE THE BVM.......We are with Her all the the way to whatever end!


GO TO SACRAMENTS! Visit the Blessed Sacrament (often), wear the Brown Scapular and say Our Lady's Rosary :)

SEMPER FIDELIS!!!!......

I have come upon this realization myself. The only thing I figure is to delve deeper and be more faithful.

Mr. C said...

Matthew, when good Cardinal George's ruminations were quoted stating his intuition that he would die in his bed, his successor in a prison cell, and the following bishop in the public square at indfidels' hands, many were quick to deride that sentiment as self-serving and insensitive towards the realities of martyr souls and the circumstances of their deaths. This is a worthy notion to consider before you summate your title "Preparing my children for martyrdom." We may be in strange times, but to capitulate to yellow journalistic eschatology and typify your parental responsibilities in a manner akin to doomsday preppers is an affront to living Christianity. One teaches Christians how to live by example, not by didactics and probability scenarios. Christians live to love, God through Christ before all else, and then all others as if Christ. If they're fortunate and you are an apt example of that "life," you don't have to "prepare" your progeny for death, as they won't know the hour of its coming. You prepare them by witnessing to everlasting life through Christ, the Way.....
We seldom hear with existential ears modern stories of Christian martyrs, especially as there are plenty of them dying in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. But recall the story of the young girl at Columbine in the library (not Catholic) whom one of the murderers queried her at gunpoint, "Do you believe in God (Jesus)?" After unflinchingly answering "Yes." she was killed. You don't prepare your children for that. You show them by example that you believe in Him, and nothing is greater and you live by His grace, example and sacrifice.
Preparing kids for martyrdom? Like preparing them for a zombie apocalypse by studying "The Walking Dead." Superficial.

Donna M said...

In charity.....not true.........Your statements regarding doomsday preppers, zombies.......In my family we have true victim souls......We live by grace that we made it through yet another day! That is true...but we have individuals in my family that would be considered the stubborn, the broken, the burdensome, the marginalized, the outcast and the unwanted. Their very existence is a living witness to the mercy of a loving God......We believe in redemptive suffering. Better to do purgatory here than the hereafter. We follow the BVM's example.

Story........St Peter was at the Pearly Gates of Heaven checking the Book of Life for all the souls who asked for entrance.

There were some that gained entrance, but an even greater number turned away.

When St Peter took a short break to indulge an inspiration, a moment of great happiness, he beheld singing in the Celestial Choir many of the souls he had previously BARRED from admittance.


Upon finding Jesus, he asked how could such inappropriate and unsavoury characters get past him at the Gate and not be written in the Book of Life. See, he said, I have the keys to the Kingdom!

Jesus, thought for a brief moment before replying,.........Ummmm......Peter.....

MY MOTHER GAVE THEM BACK DOOR PASSES AND SAID THEY COULD SING IN THE BAND!!!!!!!!!.........FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT.....That is not the worst part......

SHE HAS THE BACK DOOR BLOCKED OPEN AND PROMISED TO ASSIST ALL THEIR BORN AND UNBORN DESCENDENTS TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO GET THEM IN!!!!!.....Until the end of time!

Peter, turned at that moment, to see Mary Regina Caeli, Mediatrix of all Graces and St Michael leading a very exuberant and happy group of souls to meet her Son.

HE in turn, took them to HIS FATHER!!!

Satisfied and happy, St Peter went back to his post at the Pearly Gates.......all the while praying for humanity and his predecessors..........

stating, "May Heaven help them!!!" "THE BLESSED MOTHER, QUEEN OF HEAVEN, IS COMING TO EARTH!!!"

...nuff said :)

Of course, all those schooled in the Faith and who are committed to Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in His Church, have to be prepared to die for Him. If one isn't prepared to die, one isn't sincere in the Faith. Well done, Mr Archbold.

Christian martyrdom: AWESOME

Mr C I agree with your sentiments entirely. I often wonder if Cardinal George's exhortation on dying in the public square was in ANY way an attempt to deflect his own sins of omission, specifically on the REAL and CURRENT issue of Pfleger etc. As a father, I often tell my children about the lives of the saints and martyrs (anytime there is a statue or painting I have them guess who it is, and if they cannot, I describe them, their life, and what we can learn from them). When they were younger, we often got the standard, "but why did they kill him/her?" But now, they understand, and that's all we need to say. They get it. Scaring them by saying, "now, our government might be coming for mommy and daddy any day in our sleep so you need to be prepared to be good martyrs" is just irresponsible.
