Bishop Fellay's most recent Letter contains the following words on the importance of education of the young. Given my recent observations of the perverse decadence of Catholic youth who proclaim their de facto apostasy via social media -basically archiving via the internet, sin - Bishop Fellay's words are extremely important.
In a world that is increasingly hostile to keeping the commandments of God, we must have a genuine concern for forming well-tempered souls who take their sanctification and salvation to heart. This quite naturally leads us to give a great deal of attention to our schools and to their development. In these works of formation we invest the greater part of our resources and efforts, both human and material. Throughout the world, priests and religious are dedicating themselves to the magnificent task of Catholic education and teaching in more than one hundred institutions.
Well aware, dear faithful, that the salvation of a soul starts in the cradle, we struggle with all our might to preserve the treasures of the Christian home, a center of holiness in the midst of a decadent world that can only lead souls to hell. We do appreciate and share the concerns of fathers and mothers of families who have understood that the salvation of their children’s souls is priceless. Yes, it is necessary to be ready to make all possible sacrifices of temporal goods—even to the point of giving one’s life—in order to assure the blessed eternity of a soul.
