This month marks the second anniversary of the martyrdom of 21 Coptic Christians at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Their crime? Loving Christ enough to die for Him. Would Roman Catholics do the same? What motivates martyrs, if not love of something bigger than life itself?

Michael Matt asks the question: Is it because the New Order no longer speaks of Holy MOTHER Church that so few of her sons seem willing to die for her anymore? What have we lost? What was life in the Church like just 40 years ago? Growing up Catholic…and remembering what we lost. Scapulars. Meat-less Friday. Ember Days. Midnight Masses. Catholic Schools. Unlocked churches. Kids on bikes (sans helmet). Dogs without leashes. Large Catholic families. Remember?

Michael Matt ‘goes off’ on what life was like before Catholics got “sophisticated.”

He explained, “It is what our country was built on. People came here looking for a free land where they could worship God and follow their consciences, without king or government interfering.”

He notes that Catholics “have to be prepared to suffer.”

“But, it’s not the first time the Church has suffered persecution,” he added. “Look at the martyrs in the early Church in Rome or in 16th- and 17th-century England under Queen Elizabeth. Jesus warned us about this

“Cardinal Burke focused much of his speech on the work of the late Jesuit Father John Hardon, who wrote and taught on catechesis and evangelization. Father Hardon died in 2000. “He knew that the only way to transform the society, that is, to turn the society around to Christ and His Mystical Body, holy Church, is for individual Catholics to live their faith with complete integrity, also in the face of loneliness, ridicule, persecution, and even death,” Cardinal Burke summarized.”
