We might not win this battle. But we've already won the war.

Please do be prepared. In the eyes of the secular world, we might not win the battle we are fighting during—and after—the Fortnight for Freedom.

As a matter of fact, in the eyes of the world, we've already lost. You know this. Catholic teachings are all but outlawed in the land of the fruited plains and the home of the brave.

The memorials we celebrate on June 22—Saints John Fisher and Thomas More—remind us all too clearly that a country once dedicated to the Church of Jesus Christ, and Her Vicar in Rome—that, in the secular world, the Kingdom of God is not all that easy to help come about.

But. No matter. We've already won the battle—or, rather, Christ on the Cross has won it for us.

Pray. Fast. Sacrifice. And, yes, fight.

But in the end? Be of good cheer.

We've already won.
