When The Fascists Do Come...

They will be too stupid or evil to care about justification, Sola Scriptura, or whatever else. As I have said many times, they will ask us if we are with Jesus, or with them. And we'll die together. That will not relieve you of the right and the duty of reconciling with holy mother Church, but it probably will make it easier.

Turning from a "red" martyrdom to a "white" one, did you know that temptation is a participation in the sufferings of Christ? I might have known this intellectually, but not really. I found it highly encouraging, myself.

Know that if you sense a need to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and go there, you may have failed--as we all do--but you are not a failure. In fact, you are on the road to success. Our adversary will tell you that you are hopeless, and that God does not love you. Anything to keep you from receiving the very mercy you want and need. Don't listen.
