A Catholic priest recently took to the pulpit to call out the pandemic of fear that some are using to control the population and spread evil. 

“If I were the devil and I wanted to weaken the children of God, I would use fear, fear. I would make sure it got all the way in there. Be afraid of your neighbor. Be afraid of your health. Be afraid of society,” said Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, pastor of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in South Carolina and a senior contributor at the Catholic publication Crux.

He said, “you could get anyone to do anything when they’re afraid.” 

According to Alpha News:

“They will sacrifice every freedom, they will degrade their own dignity, they will assume any posture. They will do whatever is said so long as they are under fear,” said Kirby.

“But then I’d have to make sure that all the things that might strengthen them or help them or give them some type of awareness or illumination, I’d have to take those away. So I’d have to strike at their food,” he continued. “Make sure they’re afraid to worship God.”

Kirby wondered if the coronavirus pandemic has revealed the “true faithlessness of the people of God.”

He added, “Dear friends, do not confess, for it is not a sin if you should choose not to wear a mask.” He added, “How many would rather confess, ‘I didn’t wear a mask when I was supposed to’ rather than being belligerent to their neighbor? Negligent by sins of omission to charity because they were afraid? ‘I wouldn’t reach out to my neighbor because I was afraid,’ ‘I knew she was alone!’ ‘I knew they needed help!’ ‘But I was afraid.”

He then said:

“They don’t really believe in eternal life because, my goodness, they cling so hard to this life. They don’t really believe in the power of the sacraments. They can go three months, six months, a year without Holy Communion. Is that what we see?

We were told that 70 percent of Catholics do not believe in the real presence. I guess we were just taken to the lab and shown the reality of that Pew Research because if you believed that this was the body and blood of the living God, by which your soul is redeemed and you receive the virtues of heaven and the promise of immortality, you wouldn’t care what it took to be here.

I’ve said before and it’s important that we understand this: as Westerners, we are an embarrassment to the universal Church. We look at our believers in Africa, who’ve gone through so many pandemics, and yet their one source of their stability is their faith. They have poverty, disease, pandemics, corruption, violence, and yet they humble us with their joy. How can they be so happy? Because they don’t believe that this world is supposed to make them happy.”

“His [the devil’s] fear makes us fools. We are the children of God,” Kirby concluded. “I can understand the fear of the unbeliever. I cannot, and I pray that I never can, understand the fear that has so overtaken so many souls consecrated to Jesus Christ,” he concluded.

Do you agree with Fr. Kirby?

How true are father Kirby’s words. The leftist demorats have made sheep of most Americans. We must get our country back to what our founders said we are a Christian nation. The immorality has taken over and made our young people into a lost generation. It’s so important for us to get back into our churches and realize the truth, we need God’s hand in our lives.

This priest speaks the truth.
God protects us, we are his children.
I believe in God, I do Not fear Covid.
The cost of fear is the loss of relationships and utter depression and despair.
Adults are passing this on to children-it boggles my mind.
As a mother of five adult children, there is no way that I would allow them to have fear rule in their lives.
Stand up to this evil, stand up to this Communist, tyrannical government!
Unmask your children, unmask yourselves as leaders-be fearless!

I absolutely agree with Fr. Kirby. We are in a war of Good v. Evil. We need to have more trust in God than those heathens in government and medicine who think it’s all right to abort God’s creation.
And they want to take charge of my health care? Ludicrous.

Very true words. We are the children of God and He loves us. He tests us to see if we have faith in Him. He doesnt take the storm from us, he equips us to survive the storm. If ye get to the end of your rope, grab hold of His garments and hang on. Know that God is alive and He hears us and watches over us. We are saved thru grace and we have FAITH that God is always with us. So do not be afraid. Give your fears to God and leave them with Him. He works miracles every day.
