Late last night--- watched the latest episode of Catholic Investigative Agency on Rebellion in the Church. The point they made at the episode is “The Catholic Church is being torn apart by traitorous clerics within Her own ranks who have succumbed to humanist philosophies out of cowardice, lust and pride.”

The episode is very informative and thoughts provoking. In fact, the attitude of rebellion against authority began by Martin Luther has been the source of much evil in the Church and in the world. In recent years, rebellion against authority on moral issues has brought disasters to the Church (e.g. the sex abuse scandal).

Please click HERE to watch the episode.

The Readings of today’s Mass reminded me of the testimony of Gloria Polo from Columbia. She was struck by lightning and had a close to death experience. She experienced hell and judgment, and is now (with the approval of her local Bishop) sharing her experience with others.

You can download her “testimony in word” HERE.
