The Seven Deadly Sins have been alive and well throughout most of human history-but in the Western world, they're now tolerated, and even celebrated, more than ever before. Immorality is nothing new, but the sins of contemporary America (especially in regards to sexual immorality, abortion, and genetic engineering and the scientific manipulation of life itself) might well shame and appall the residents of ancient Sodom and Gomorrah. Religion persecution of Christians is nothing new-but modern technology allows for the surveillance and suppression of believers to an extent previously unimaginable.
In this book, Rev. Joseph Esper provides a resource for Catholics seeking to recognize and overcome the unique spiritual dangers confronting us as the 21st Century enters its second decade. He offers us Our Call to Heroism and Holiness calling the faithful to Happiness and Growth While under Siege. Spiritual Dangers of the 21st Century presents us with Weapons in Our Spiritual Arsenal for the challenges we face daily as we are called to "the salt of the earth" and "light for the world" (Mt. 5:13-14). Faith and love will see us through. Jesus is with is always, and He has guaranteed us victory!
