Stop Feeding the Beast: Boycott Corrupters of Innocence – Aug 13 – Homily – Fr Andre
On the Memorial of Saints Pontian, Pope, and Hippolytus, Priest, Martyrs (Martyrs, Aug 13,2019), Fr. Andre exhorts believers to boycott those powers who seek to corrupt the faith and morals of children and the “little ones” to whom Jesus refers in today’s Gospel (Mt 18:1-5, 10, 12-14).
Our Lord tells us that only those who are “like children” will enter the Kingdom of heaven. Christians therefore have a responsibility to oppose the destroyers of morality—not only through prayer but also by means of economic sanction, boycotting worldly enterprises that seek to destroy the innocence of “little ones.” Christians need to put their money where their faith is, and stop feeding the Beast!
