EWTN Catholic Q&A
Attitude and the Current Environment
Question from Gene Browe on 03-05-2013:

Many within the Christian Community state that they are not worrisome or troubled in the least regarding the current environment obessessed with the destruction of the faith. Is that to suggest that they who believe so have greater faith or remain in greater service to our Lord? Are we not called into redemptive suffering with our Lord and with our fellow christian brothers as to "lose our peace" and "run to the field of battle" as St. Catherine argued?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 04-08-2013:

Dear Gene,

You are right. The environment of unbelief causes great suffering to good people. It causes great pain to all people because unbelief is a lie and a deception.
