Be Ready to Defend the Church: Quotations

"Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness" ~ Isaiah 5:20

"You shall be held responsible if you do not warn of evil" ~ Ezekiel 33: 7-9

"Not to oppose error, is to approve of it, and not to defendtruth is to suppress it, and indeed to neglect to confound evilmen, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them." ~ Pope Felix III

"The power of evil men lives on the cowardice of the good" ~ St. John Bosco

"To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is a part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubts as to the truth of what he professes to believe. In both cases such a mode of behavior is base and insulting to God and both are incompatible with the salvation of mankind. This kind of conduct is profitableonly to the enemies of faith, for nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good very frequently, by a display of courage, our enemies lose heart and their designs are thwarted. Christians, moreover, are born for combat!" ~ Pope Leo XIII
