May he be a saint soon

Why do people put so much time and effort into attacking the Catholic Church and not any of the Protestant Churches? Because Satan doesn't waste his time on false churches.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Communism destroys human freedom. Man is free, thanks to two guarantees: one economic, the other spiritual. The economic guarantee of freedom is private property, for it enables man to call something his own which is outside himself. The spiritual guarantee of freedom is his soul, which makes him independent of an earthly tyrant or a political dictator.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Do not say it was absurd that Satan should appear to Our Lord, for Satan must always come close to the godly and the strong--the others succumb from a distance. --Fulton John Sheen

The pacifist thinks that the alternative to war is peace; it is not. Sometimes the alternative is oppression. Sometimes certain God-given rights and liberties can be preserved only by resistance to that which would destroy them. And to defend certain basic God-given rights and liberties is not immoral but righteous. --Fulton John Sheen

A popular God-is-dead book in the United States argues that homosexuality will become normal in a humanistic society where there is no restriction of morals which come from religion. St. Paul declared homosexuality and atheism were related to one another as effect to cause. --Fulton John Sheen
