Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

So What if He Is the Antichrist?

What should a Christian do about it, differently than if he were just a normal man with some bad policy ideas?

Nothing, I propose.

Our enemies aren't flesh and blood (Eph 6:12), St. Paul tells us, and we don't use worldly weapons (2 Cor 10:4). Worldly weapons means more than just material weapons - guns, etc. It means worldly ways of thinking and fighting. Our weapons are prayer, truth, charity, reliance on divine providence, and love of suffering for Jesus. We don't have to get too tense about the whole thing either, because Jesus has already won the fight and conquered his enemies (Col 2:15).

So what do we do?

We just keep speaking truth, praying, meeting our Lord in the Sacraments, and waiting for Jesus to come again in glory, like we've been doing for 2000 years.
