In the end there is only one Church

The Catholic Church really is the one, the only true Faith in the world. The powers of darkness are constantly focused on her. In a way, this is a comfort. Nobody, except the Chinese government, for obviously reason, hates the Dalai Lama. No college going spoiled brat would dream of going into a Hindu temple and committing a desecration. None of the "sophisticated" set would have the guts to openly mock the Koran. No college professor would dare mess with the holy objects stolen from a synogauge and then brag about it in public. Why? Becasue none of these things really matters.
Only the Catholic Church terrifes and infuriates the lovers of the dark side. They write books, they make jokes, they come up with "new" discoveries every Christmas and Easter, they dedicate their whole lives to being her open enemy. Why? Because she is real, true, the Only. So, for the Mormon idiot teenaged missionaries who desecrate church grounds, to the college professors and students who plan blasphemy, to the goons who smash statues of the Blessed Mother, to those who strut into our churches and behave foully I pray:
Arise oh Lord and let thy enemies be scattered.
Let those who hate thee, fly before thy holy face.

A Prayer from St. Therese


"O Jesus, who in Thy bitter Passion didst become "the most abject of men, a man of sorrows", I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon there once did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead; but now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper! Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all men. The tears which well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes appear to me as so many precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase the souls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value. O Jesus, whose adorable Face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen."

Beautiful post. Believe it or not, I hadn't heard that perspective voiced in light of the recent professor's evil behavior. You are right. If the Church were not the true home of Christ, she would not be so persecuted in such a blatant and utterly disrespectful manner.
