"I just want to thank you and be sure you know what you mean to countless military families. You can't imagine the comfort MAGNIFICAT brings to my son when he is on maneuvers for many weeks at a time and unable to get to Mass because there are no Catholic chaplains to come out to the field. It is a permanent part of his pack- right next to dry socks. On the base he attends Mass several times a week and leads a rosary prayer group every Thursday night. There is a very devout priest who ministers to the base- but in the field you are the only connection he has to the Mass. May God bless and multiply all your efforts."

Idolatry is committed not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.
