As we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, which falls on the night of our Monk's Cellar event, we do well to meditate on the seer's eerie 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? Tune in to find out! Aaron is a life-long Catholic and a Knight of Columbus.
