I love Pope Saint John Paul II. I know there are people who say he’s not a good Catholic or not even a Catholic, and there are those that say he was not a good pope or even a pope. But I love him and his writings. He is one of the people who drew me to the Church whose teachings I enjoy sharing here on the blog and on social media, and drew me away from the New Age, which I work to expose now on my blog.
I owe a debt to the Catholic Church for reaching out and pulling me out of a life of darkness. I don’t want to over-dramatize my plight. I wasn’t abused as a child or hooked on drugs. But there was darkness. Anyone who isn’t in the light is necessarily in the dark. The Lord, through His Church, gave me the grace I needed to say goodbye to all that and turn my life around completely. So I work with joy to share the truths of the faith, the teachings and practices of the Church, which have made all the difference in my life and the lives of countless others down through the centuries.
I consider it part of my mission to expose the darkness of the New Age because I spent so many years in it and spent much time and energy drawing others to it. It’s at the root of many other movements and connected to still others. The New Age, with its false hopes and false Christs, its ignorance posing as knowledge, its darkness masquerading as light, is one of the most influential movements we must combat in this age. And combat it we must.
The New Age movement is a movement away from God, away from Christ, away from the Holy Spirit, away from the Church Christ founded. It is anti-religion, anti-Christian, and particularly, virulently anti-Catholic.
