"Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less," said Dr. Ray Guarendi, explaining that doing so would help people become "more settled, they'd be more at peace, they'd be much closer to joy and contentment. They wouldn't be at the mercy of whatever happens, whatever words happen to come their way."
Guarendi is "a Catholic father of ten adopted children, a clinical psychologist, author, professional speaker, and national radio and television host," according to his website, DrRay.com. He is the author of books, including the recently published, "Jesus, the Master Psychologist: Listen to Him" (EWTN Publishing).

"I've joked about the fact that, you know, I've met with the Taliban, I've met with Chairman Kim, but nothing frightens me more than what's happening in our schools today. We truly have to get our hands around this because they are educating the next generation that we are a racist nation and that will fundamentally put at risk our republic," said Mike Pompeo, the former U.S. secretary of state who also served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, congressman from Kansas and U.S. Army officer.
A graduate of West Point and of Harvard Law School, he has also been a business founder and CEO. Pompeo is a distinguished fellow at the Hudson Institute and is chairman of CAVPAC, the Champion American Values political action committee. Follow him @mikepompeo on Twitter.

“We have one judgment at the time of death. Maybe we need to go back to...really learning and teaching and meditating and praying on the four last things: death, judgment, heaven, hell. Because we are at a precipice and everybody is dancing around it, going, 'Well, you know, we don't want to be mean' or 'We don't want to look foolish in the eyes of the world.' It's like, what? We're supposed to look foolish in the eyes of the world. That was what Christ promised. So this is really do-or-die at this point. This is a time to pick a side," said Leila Miller, a Catholic author whose recent article, "Grooming Preschoolers? This Shocking Video Makes Clear: It’s Time to Pick a Side," was republished by the National Catholic Register.
She is the author of books, including "Primal Loss: The Now-Adult Children of Divorce Speak," and co-author with Trent Horn of "Made This Way: How to Prepare Kids to Face Today's Tough Moral Issues."

“A parade is a celebration of something. Our world is celebrating disorder all over the place. It is really a big parade marching down to, unfortunately — unless God stops it — to damnation for quite a number of people,” said Charles D. Fraune, author of the 2019 book, "Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know."
In a recent blog post, "The 'Big Parade' — Transitioning to Hell," he wrote, "So if we find ourselves becoming soft to the moral evils emerging around us, tolerant of the infection of evil into the souls of those we know and love, and less disturbed by the presence of blasphemy and irreligion in the culture, know that we too have been partly converted to the Kingdom of Hell."
Fraune appeared previously on Respect Life Radio to discuss his book. Follow him on Twitter @CharlesDFraune.

"The Sacred Heart is so powerful, precisely because it's that imagery of the actual human heart of Jesus that reminds us — not only of our own hearts physically, that we have one, that it's central to who we are — but that it's in hearts that are united in love that we find our greatest fulfillment," said Fr. Thomas F. Dailey, O.S.F.S., author of "Behold This Heart: St. Francis de Sales and Devotion to the Sacred Heart" (Sophia Institute Press). Fr. Dailey holds the John Cardinal Foley Chair of Homiletics and Social Communications at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

"Every time America is strong, our enemies don't mess with us. Whenever we have a weak Administration leading us, it empowers and emboldens the tyrants of the world — and they take advantage of it. We've already seen the opening salvos, barely a couple months into the Biden Administration. It's not likely to get better. So that's another reason [for] people to focus on what they need to do to ensure that we don't go down that path of weakness and socialism that the woke Left wants us to follow," said Jim Hanson, president of the Security Studies Group. He is the author of the recent book, "Winning the Second Civil War: Without Firing a Shot." Follow him @JimHansonDC on Twitter.
