Archbishop Carlson to the President: "We are ready to suffer for our convictions."
This is just a portion of the speech given by His Grace Robert Carlson, Archbishop of Saint Louis, at the Rally for Religious Liberty in Jefferson City. Undoubtedly, he addresses a President who is quite willing to give us the opportunity to suffer as much as we can stand.
In case you have difficulty making out the audio, His Grace states:
"We are ready to suffer for our convictions. You can fine us, and we won't pay. You can put me in jail-- I don't care. But we will remain committed to the end to what our Lord has taught us, and what He has called us to do as His witnesses and disciples.
"We have been here before.
"Remember Rome, Mr. Obama, remember Rome."
It is good to hear such bold words. May we all be willing to suffer for what is right, and to pray for the triumph of Christ which, though certain, is left to His good time.
Pray for the consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
