Here’s what you can do to drive evil from the Church and help restore it to the true Holy Catholic Church. God is purging the Church and he wants you to be part of his plan! And so Good News Ministries is inviting you to join the Apostolate of the Rosary Walkathon.
The Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity says (para. 7): “The whole Church must work vigorously in order that men may become capable of rectifying the distortion of the temporal order and directing it to God through Christ.” This includes the distortions in the Church that have been undermining people’s faith.
Canon Law #212 says in paragraph 3 that we, Christ’s faithful, “have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals.”
Jesus says, “Enough is enough!” It is time we speak up. But what if the hierarchy doesn’t listen? Terry Modica proposes in this episode a Rosary Walkathon based on an experience from her own life. And she explains why the Rosary is especially effective in defeating evil. In the next (and final) episode in this series, she will explain how to do it and invite you to join The Apostolate of the Rosary Walkathon.

THE DECREE OF THE APOSTOLATE OF THE LAITY
CHAPTER II – PARAGRAPH 7 EXCERPTS
In the course of history, the use of temporal things has been marred by serious vices. Affected by original sin, men have frequently fallen into many errors concerning the true God, the nature of man, and the principles of the moral law. This has led to the corruption of morals and human institutions and not rarely to contempt for the human person himself. In our own time, moreover, those who have trusted excessively in the progress of the natural sciences and the technical arts have fallen into an idolatry of temporal things and have become their slaves rather than their masters.
The whole Church must work vigorously in order that men may become capable of rectifying the distortion of the temporal order and directing it to God through Christ. Pastors must clearly state the principles concerning the purpose of creation and the use of temporal things and must offer the moral and spiritual aids by which the temporal order may be renewed in Christ.
The laity must take up the renewal of the temporal order as their own special obligation. Led by the light of the Gospel and the mind of the Church and motivated by Christian charity, they must act directly and in a definite way in the temporal sphere. As citizens they must cooperate with other citizens with their own particular skill and on their own responsibility. Everywhere and in all things they must seek the justice of God’s kingdom. The temporal order must be renewed in such a way that, without detriment to its own proper laws, it may be brought into conformity with the higher principles of the Christian life and adapted to the shifting circumstances of time, place, and peoples. Preeminent among the works of this type of apostolate is that of Christian social action which the sacred synod desires to see extended to the whole temporal sphere, including culture.
