And my own little comment: we, the Church in America, indeed have some “cause for shame” when we “dispute with our foes in the gateways”. The 90+ percent of Catholic using contraception have considerably weakened us in our dispute with the federal government over the healthcare mandate. And, having contributed to the vocation shortage, they’ve weakened us in our spiritual warfare as well.
Jumping ahead to Night Prayer to end on a note of hope, My soul is waiting for the Lord, I count on his word…because with the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption. Israel indeed he will redeem from all its iniquity.
