Father Corapi’s Answer to Turning Back the Tide of Darkness

We should make a commitment to study our faith at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week – or some comparable program. Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which will in turn help you to understand your reading of Sacred Scripture. You should be able to answer the basic moral questions of the day, as well as give simple explanations for the Church’s basic doctrinal teaching.  Failure to do so results in gross error in faith in morals both among the clergy and among the faithful.  Pray the rosary daily.  By praying the rosary daily, Our Lady will lead you to her Son in the Eucharist, and her Son will obtain for you the grace to obey the Holy Father and magisterial teaching.  Praying the rosary with the scriptures is a lesson in theology however, you must learn to read scripture the way the Church reads scripture.  Therefore, the Bible and the Catechism are inseparable tools to learning the Catholic Faith.

As the darkness settles in ever greater layers our only defense is prayer, the sacraments, and learning all you can about the Catholic Faith.
