Bishop Daniel R. Jenky says the Church has survived barbarian invasions, jihads, Nazism and Communism, so it’ll “survive the hatred of Hollywood, the malice of the media” - and Obama.
In a recent homily, Peoria, Ill. Bishop Jenky reminded Catholics that efforts to destroy the Church are nothing new – and that they have all failed:
“For 2,000 years the enemies of Christ have certainly tried their best. But think about it. The Church survived and even flourished during centuries of terrible persecution, during the days of the Roman Empire.
“The Church survived barbarian invasions. The Church survived wave after wave of Jihads. The Church survived the age of revolution. The Church survived Nazism and Communism.”
He said the Church will overcome today’s attacks on the Church, as well: – even those by Pres. Obama and his administration:
“And in the power of the resurrection, the Church will survive the hatred of Hollywood, the malice of the media, and the mendacious wickedness of the abortion industry.
“The Church will survive the entrenched corruption and sheer incompetence of our Illinois state government, and even the calculated disdain of the President of the United States, his appointed bureaucrats in HHS, and of the current majority of the federal Senate.”
Bishop Jenky then offered a prayer and a warning regarding politicians who claim to be Catholic, but “betray Jesus” by their votes and conduct:
“May God have mercy on the souls of those politicians who pretend to be Catholic in church, but in their public lives, rather like Judas Iscariot, betray Jesus Christ by how they vote and how they willingly cooperate with intrinsic evil.”
