Father Joseph Illo, pastor of Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco, gave a fifteen-minute homily on Sunday, November 8.

The main message was that after the election we must see that governments come and go, but no man and no party can save us. Father Illo cited the example of Padre Pio who watched a socialist government take over Italy.

But Father was clear about how bad things are: “The powerful in America – those who control our media… celebrate evil … scorn virtue.”

Here is an excerpt about the choices we face:

“Can we finally resolve to stop sending our children to schools and universities that will make them powerful in their careers but that will promote atheism? Parents tell me that they are going to send their children to this or that school, and I say they will almost certainly lose their faith.”
