RESIST THE LOSS OF CATHOLIC IDENTITYby Bradley Eli, M.Div., Ma.Th. • ChurchMilitant.com • March 29, 2017
Abp. Sheen: “You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church”
Catholics around the world are waking up to the crisis in the Church. They are beginning to stand up for their Faith by joining the Resistance movement begun by Church Militant.
By 1972, Abp. Fulton Sheen recognized the crisis of faith stemming from weak leadership and poor formation. He also saw the role of the laity in turning the tide. That year, the holy and learned bishop gave the laity their marching orders:
Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops, like bishops, and your religious act like religious.
