It seems that with the advent of the internet and most people's connection with it, there are more and more false prophets gaining disciples these days. It was bad enough when network TV was the only place where people like Oprah and Deepak Chopra cultivated their following. Now, it seems, that anyone with a YouTube video, slickly produced, can get their 15 minutes of "theological" or "religious" fame. Why is it that there are so many lost little lambs, easily deceived by the wolf in sheep's clothing? Who is to blame for the ever rising tide of unbelief and misplaced belief?
Folks, there is a lot of work to be done...The harvest is great but the laborers are few.
Behind praying for the intentions of Pope Benedict XVI my highest prayer priority will be for the conversion of heart of those conflicted, those who do not believe, and those who lead others astray, that they may come to know the eternal love of Jesus and come to understand His Holy Church. Second, I will pray for all those who catechize the unfaithful, that they may be patient and perseverant in their "planting of seeds" and "tilling of soil."
