Identity Crisis

The world today is facing a moral collapse which is rooted in the loss of faith in God and His moral framework for the world. What most people still miss is that all these are due to an identity crisis. It shouldn’t be surprising anymore when men think they can act like women, to the point of undergoing surgical procedures to look like a woman. It also shouldn’t be surprising when women prefer to marry fellow women and this is now called human right. Do we even know the meaning of rights if we miss the fundamental mark of who we really are?

If a mother can now take the life of her baby before birth for her convenience\’s sake with the full support of most states and countries and the eager help of medical doctors and nurses, then we have many questions to ask ourselves concerning who we really are and why we are here in this part of the universe.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen.

May Our Lady of Fatima continue to intercede for you and me and the whole world. Amen. Prayer requests are welcome here at the online Rosary prayer request centre.

    The root of the decline goes deeper than who we are as a body, as a gender. Rather the real identity crisis is a loss of awareness of who are as “created in the image of God.”

    Obviously, the image of God is not that of a body, male or female, but rather who we are in our deepest nature – a soul, a spirit. When we lose touch with this mystical awareness, when spiritual formation is set aside for moral education, we lose the sense of identity that must be there before morals can even begin to make sense.

    Without knowing our true identity, as soul or spirit, we are set adrift and the voices of philosophical materialism take over and define us as herd animals, as a body without a soul, and from this identity springs all contemporary culture.
