Theme: Immunizing Ourselves against Viruses of the Mind
Our conference moderator, Mike Church, titled his presentation “The Holy Family: A Vaccination Against Devilio.” The war on the family, he said, began with the war on women. The canard is ubiquitous. One hears it everywhere, A woman must have a “career” outside the family in order to be complete. My favorite line was the feminist chant “We will not be dictated to” and so women became stenographers. “Honor thy father and thy mother” is a command not a counsel. Real fatherhood is ridiculed today, especially in entertainment. We must exalt fatherhood, authority, if we are to survive as a Christian society. Our model is Saint Joseph, head of the Holy Family. Imagine, even Jesus was subject to Saint Joseph! What is Satan’s most powerful tool against Christian fatherhood? Pornography! A man cannot lead a family if he is a slave to filth. We must exalt holy men like Saint Louis IX and the father of Saint Therese, Saint Louis Martin and so many others. Chesterton once said “When we step into a family we step into a fairy tale”. Be a family, pray the Rosary together.
