Priest: How Catholics must survive Satanic attack on marriage, family




Published on Sep 24, 2019

CARDIFF, U.K., September 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A priest has encouraged Catholics to resist erroneous teachings on marriage, coming from outside and even inside the Church, and to embrace the responsibility of being the chief means of conveying the true Faith to their children. 

“Believing families are indeed the true fortresses and, as such, need to be defended against the assaults of the devil,” said Fr. Linus Clovis of Family Life International at a U.K. Catholic conference earlier this month (read full talk below). The conference was organized by Voice of the Family, an initiative of LifeSiteNews and the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. The Sept. 6-8 event, titled “Handing on the Deposit of the Faith,” was held at Newman Hall, University Catholic Chaplaincy, in Cardiff, UK.

Quoting the late Carlo Cardinal Caffarra, the founding president of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family, Fr. Clovis advised Catholics “how to preserve the Catholic Faith in its entirety and raise children to eternal life.”

I will tell you very frankly that I do not see any other place outside the family where the faith which you have to believe and to live can be sufficiently transmitted. Moreover, in Europe during the collapse of the Roman Empire and during the later barbarian invasions, what the Benedictine monasteries then did can likewise be done now by the believing families, in today’s reign of a new spiritual-anthropological barbarism. And thank God that faithful families exist and still resist. Believing families are the true fortresses. And the future is in the hands of God.
