Mike: Today is Wednesday the 19th of April. It is the first Wednesday after Easter. Now, what does that mean? Well, that means, as I said in the previous hour, that 1,984 Easters have been commemorated. Let’s count that up again, 1,984 commemorations of the March 25th, 33 AD resurrection of Our Lord began – that happened in 33 AD. Joseph Pearce, “The Son Rises in the West: France & the Resurrection of the Faith.”
As history demonstrates, in France as elsewhere, the Church is always rising from the dead because the gates of Hell cannot prevail against her…
“Christianity has died many times and risen again; for it had a God who knew the way out of the grave.” –G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man.
In a recent essay, “Is the West Lost Forever?,” I wrote the following:
What will be left when the secularist ‘West’ is dead will be the Permanent Things. Christianity is alive and well, and thriving and growing, in Africa, Asia, China-and yes, even in resurrected embryonic form in Europe and other parts of the ‘West’ . . .

It’s not that secularism is dead [Mike: I think this applies here in America as well.] as a political force. It isn’t (like the poor it is always with us). It is simply that it does not have the power to defeat the forces of Christendom.

Mike: You can say that another way by saying it doesn’t have — and it can’t defeat Christendom because it does not have the grace to do so. If you’ve ever said “But by the grace of God there go I” or “I’m here today thanks to the grace of God,” if you’ve ever said that, grace follows the faithful. It is present and the reason you maintain or can maintain that faith. It’s important to get this. The enemies of the Church do not receive graces like that, they simply don’t. Have you ever wondered how a martyr is made? Take one of the recent examples, for example. When you see the Coptic Christians lined up on a beach in Libya, each with a Mohammedan in a black smock behind them, with their faces covered, but they all have daggers and they’re about ready to begin cutting heads off and yet those Christians kneel there and apparently take it. [mocking] “Mitter Church, that’s just courage and bravery.” Or it’s a special grace that’s been accorded them so they have courage and bravery. After all, courage is one of the gifts, the Holy Ghost, we’re told. Back to Pearce.
Although it is always proclaiming the Christian Faith to be dead or dying, secularism does not have the power to kill it; or, rather, if it does have the power to kill it, as it indubitably has the power to kill its disciples, it does not have the power to keep it killed. Christendom, like the God of whom it is the Mystical Body, always has the power to find its way out of the graves being dug for it. As history demonstrates, in France as elsewhere, the Church is always rising from the dead because the gates of hell cannot prevail against her. She is always rising from the dead because her God is Risen indeed.
