We are living in a time when the saints are about to be annihilated, now is the time to rescue them.
We have all heard of Schindler’s List, but now we have a new list. Our organization has just given a significant amount of money to pay for the process of obtaining visas for one thousand Christians from Iraq, in order to bring them into Australia.
This is a success for our rescue team, but we must continue to work so that more will be liberated from the ravenous clutches of ISIS.
The noble are forever at the point of death, lying on the earth in a moribund state, and surrounded by forests of evil men who proffer to their idols the blood of the innocent, shed through guile, sycophancy, and tyranny.
It is the noble whose voices go unheard amidst a world where ears are filled with caressing words, and corpulent souls fattened by vain speech. For as Solomon wrote:
The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. (Ecclesiastes 9:17)
The cries of those sacrificed to the gods of this world are as endless as the black holes of an outlying universe, and the sense of duty to strive for their liberation, is as far from most of humanity as the very distance of the constellations.
The barbarian Saracens, these corruptors of the truth called Muslims, “slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless” (Psalm 94:6), they are “Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,” (Titus 3:3), they are the enemies of the Cross, enemies of Christendom, and they slay the innocent and drink the blood of the saints.
They are slaves to the Harlot of Babylon, forever working to fulfill her impulses, and pleasure their own violent desires.
And what then are we to do with their victims, amidst this torrent of cruelty, in the presence of pure maliciousness that fogs the whole air and hovers in the absence of all good, as the night survives through the void of all light?
Christ commands us, “Let your light so shine before men” (Matthew 5:16) and what does the darkness seek, but to take away the effulgence of the animate lamps of God?
The devils are incessantly working to extinguish this holy light, and it is our duty to see to it that these sacred candles of God, who illuminate the whole earth with but a single glimmer, are preserved.
The whole earth is being infected by the smoke of Satan, it taints the air and hazes the eyes; it spawns from souls subjected to the flesh and infused with the sinisterism of hell; it takes control of the conscience and tears away and shreds to pieces the eternal law written by the hand of God on the heart; it brings men to laugh at suffering and be bitter at justice; it pushes mortals to become hysterical and ecstatic before the fields of death and the wastelands of destruction; it is the spirit of perdition; it is the absence of Heaven.
Let us look to Heaven, and let our souls soar to its eternal home by tending to the wounds of sacred saints. Let us look to the persecuted and see the wounds of our Crucified Savior; the anguish of our Hope; the scourged flesh of our Mercy; the pain of our Salvation; the abandonment of our Messiah; the crucifixion of our redeemer. Let us look to the eyes of the persecuted, and see the eyes of God.
For Christ identifies Himself with the persecuted, declaring:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (Matthew 25:35-26)
Let us help the persecuted Christians, so that when we stand before God, we may hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matthew 25:23)
