Pope St. Pius X: The Greatest Strength of the Evil Lies in the Weakness of the Good
The Greatest Strength of the Evil Lies in the Weakness of the Good
Discourse of Pius X on the Day of Joan of Arc’s Beatification in Orléans, France, December 13, 1908
Taken from here

Already in 1908, Pope St. Pius X forewarned Catholics that it is those inside the Church, the supposed friends of Christ, who are inflicting the greatest wounds upon Him and His Bride the Church. How do they do this? By doing nothing to defend the Holy Church and, instead, becoming accomplices of the enemy. This is what we see fulfilled today, with that complicity with the enemy being promoted by the highest authorities of the Catholic Church since Vatican II.

Quote:Difficulties come from those who create and exaggerate them, from those who trust in themselves without the help of Heaven, from those who give in vilely, fearful of the mocking and derision of the world. From this it must be concluded, that in our days more than ever the greatest strength of evil men is the cowardice and weakness of those who are good, and all the backbone of the kingdom of Satan lies in the weakness of Christians.

Oh! if I were allowed, as the prophet Zechariah did in spirit, to ask the divine Redeemer: What are these wounds are in the middle of your hands: quid sunt plagae istae in medio manuum Tuarum? The answer would not be doubtful: 'These have been given to Me in the house of those who loved me: his plagatus sum in medio eorum qui diligebant Me. I was wounded by my friends, who have done nothing to defend Me and who in every meeting have become the accomplices of my adversaries.

And this reproach, which can be leveled at the infamous and fearful Christians of all countries, one cannot exempt many Christians of France.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
