Radix Needs Help

Forgive the length of this, but I don't want a word missed.

Seldom will you ever see a real request for financial assistance when you visit my blog, but tonight, I got this email forwarded by a dear friend. Radix needs help. Anyone not familiar with them can go to their webpage, and you can see the work that they do! This is basically a two man operation, founded by Doug Barry, with Eric Genius.

Their most famous work is The Passion of Christ, but they have others... POWERFUL! Pray about it, and if you have some extra, perhaps you can send them a portion of it?


Fellow Warriors

I am not going to mince any words with you. Nor am I going to dazzle you with fancy slogans or clichés. What I am going to do is put it right on the line. Recently I had a conversation with a brother in Christ who said that he would never have known that Radix operated financially from day to day on a shoestring for the past 14 years. He said that by looking at our website and the products we produce it appeared to him that all was financially just fine. He went on to encourage me to be more open and direct about our financial needs. I believe that God was speaking to me through this advice and so I now reach out to you! And I believe that God will respond through you.

Please consider these words of Hugh of St. Victor from 1140 A.D.

"For the Incarnate Word is our king, Who came into this world to war with the devil; and all the saints who were before His coming are soldiers as it were, going before their king, and those who have come after and will come, even to the end of the world, are soldiers following their king. And the king Himself is in the midst of His army and proceeds protected and surrounded on all sides by His columns. all are really serving the one king and following the one banner; all are pursuing the one enemy and are being crowned by the one victory."

My fellow warriors the time is urgent, now more than ever, RADIX needs your financial support or we will become one more casualty in this spiritual war, a war that is being waged for your soul, my soul and the souls of our children. The time is now to step up the fight! If we don’t rise to the challenge before us, then what chance do our children and grandchildren have at a decent world to live in?

Recently, Catholic World News reported, “The chief exorcist of Rome has warned that the Church is not sufficiently conscious of the devil. ‘The devil is extremely satisfied, because he is at liberty to do his work,’ said Father Gabriel Amorth.”

These are chilling words! That the Church is not sufficiently conscious of the enemy that works tirelessly to destroy souls is chilling. You and I are part of this Church!

Anyone who has the eyes of faith can surely see the manifestation of the spiritual war that is being waged against Christ and those who have chosen to follow Him. No matter where you turn, there is a battle being fought. Everyday we are faced with a deluge of news headlines and clips from these battles. One of the most recent examples being the movie based on the novel by Dan Brown, "The Da Vinci Code." This is just one more brick in the building of the anti-Catholic war machine that is being perpetuated on a regular basis.

We Are Witnessing a Deluge of Attacks
That are Straight Out of the Pit of Hell
WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW

Consider the following:
* The assault on anything Christian in our public offices and schools, on flags, emblems, state logos and even the pledge of allegiance is under attack
* The homosexual lifestyle being pushed upon society even in our schools, and anyone who speaks out against it is labeled, insensitive, homophobic or full of hate.
* The battle that ran through the courts to determine if Terri Schiavo should lose her life by State sponsored murder in the name of mercy
* The continued beheading of human beings in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries
* The battle to redefine marriage and make illicit homosexual unions acceptable
* People prosecuted in Canada for “hate speech” for publishing in a newspaper, Biblical quotes opposing homosexuality.
* The UN’s population Control efforts including coerced abortions and forced sterilization of women
* The bizarre challenges for the so called “right” to partial birth abortion
* The brainwashing of our children through cable and public airwaves with shows like MTV, VH1, The Simpsons, Blind Date, South Park to name just a few.

The pornography industry is taking in around 15 billion dollars annually in the U.S. and nearly 60 billion worldwide. These numbers are probably higher but much of the money made from this filth is not reported due to the criminal element that accompanies it.

As Christians we are called to sanctify the temporal order, to make holy that in which we live. Not run from it and bury our heads in the sand. Every one of us has a role and an obligation to fight this spiritual battle with everything we have, even if it costs us our life. (See the article Called to Knighthood in the War Room on our website)

My fellow warriors for Christ, and I call you warriors because that is what you and I become when we have received the Sacrament of Confirmation. “We are Knights in God’s army!” We cannot escape this responsibility! It is our duty and an honor to fight for the kingdom of Heaven. We are living in very difficult and trying times. The task at hand is not for the faint of heart, but it is a task that our Lord has given to each and every one of us and He will hold us accountable for it. The King of Kings is not a pushover. He will not take lightly those of us who shirk our duty.

The Church teaches us that as Christians, our life on earth is a warfare. It is a battle that must be fought until we breathe our last breath and face our Lord to give an account of how well we battled in the face of the enemy. (Listen to our Final Voyage: Navigating the Waters of Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell at our website)

St. Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:10-17
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

“The Flaming Darts of the Evil One”
WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW

As we continue to present the Word of God to the world and advance on the territory of the evil one, the intensity of his attacks are felt. In conversations that I have had with many brothers and sisters that are involved in Catholic ministry work I have been told that RADIX is not alone in feeling the reprisals of the enemy. For many of us the attacks have become much more intense. Every convert, every abortion that is averted, every teenager who turns to God, every heart that turns to God’s mercy through the healing sacrament of Confession, every soul who responds to the Truth of Jesus Christ through the efforts of Radix, brings with it ever increasing counter attacks by the Devil.

And one way the evil one works to destroy our mission is through our finances! The financial aspect of any ministry is essential. The enemy knows this. He knows that funding is necessary if we are to continue to wage a war against him on all levels.

Fellow Warriors, We Need Reinforcements
And We Need Them Now!

Every army must have a continuous supply line enabling the flow of food, ammo, fuel, and other supplies to reach the front lines. This supply line is essential in order to push ahead and reclaim territory lost to the enemy. You are our supply line! And with your help, we produce the dramas on DVD, the CD's, the LIVE stage dramas, presentations to both adults and teens including going into their schools and parishes not to mention our website which reaches over 50,000 people every month from around the world.

WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW to help us reinforce and strengthen our front lines. There is much we are doing, with your help, to fight the enemy in this culture of death that has infiltrated our borders and our world. We are using the tools of wewn radio, EWTN television, the internet, public and private events and more to bring the “sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” to all four corners of the earth. But we are in great need of your financial support to tighten the lines, fill in the gaps and keep the pressure on the enemy.

We need you right now to join forces with us by making a tax-deductible donation in any amount you can, $50, $100, $1000, $10,000. There is no War Chest here at RADIX to fund this spiritual war we are fighting. We do not receive money from the diocese nor does any business or corporation sponsor us. We rely on you to stand side by side with us, covering our flanks as we continue to push forward and take the fight to the enemy.

Please understand that every dollar you give deals a deadly blow to the enemy’s war plan. Every dollar makes it possible for one more Spiritual POW who has become hostage to sin and spiritual corruption to be freed from the vices of the enemy.

We must continue this fight until the day we hear Our Lord say “Well done my good and faithful soldier.” On that day, every effort you have made, and every dollar you have spent in support of the mission to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world, will be made known to all humanity. What a glorious day that will be.

I am humbled to ask you for your help. But I know from more than fourteen years of traveling and fighting this fight in the trenches, how necessary your kindness and generosity is in getting the job done. I can not do what I do without your prayers and financial assistance. Please stand with me in these difficult days and together we can be instruments of God’s grace, wielding a blazing sword of Heavenly light, striking at the darkness that has penetrated and imprisoned so many lives. Let’s work together to free souls from the enemies grasp and one day may we all joyfully meet in Heaven where all the wounds we have received from the hard fought battle will be forever healed.

Doug
