As we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, we do well to meditate on the seer's eery prophesy: "The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about Marriage and the Family.’ Don't be afraid, she added, because whoever works for the sanctity of Marriage and the Family will always be fought against and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. Then she concluded: ‘nevertheless, Our Lady has already crushed his head’.”
How can we promote the sanctity of the Family in the midst a hostile culture? Is starting a family while this "final battle" rages something to be avoided? Is it time to head for the hills?
Join us to find out!
SPEAKER: AARON ROSE
As always, any young adult (18-39..ish) is welcome to attend, Catholic or not. If you are not a young adult, please do not join us.
We want to thank our friends at the Monk's Cellar for providing us with some great deals on the best food around. You buying dinner is the best way to thank them. The beer is free to you and paid for by St. Joseph Marello Parish. It starts flowing freely at 7pm. Show up early for a good seat. Our events are usually standing room only - packed with amazing young adults. New faces are always welcome, so bring your friends.
