.- During a Confirmation ceremony this week, the Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñíguez, said the Church will remain firm until the end of the world because she has the protection of the Holy Spirit.
During his remarks to the 47 confirmandi, the cardinal underscored that “the Church shall remain” despite “the attacks she receives daily, both those of the past, and those of the present such as The Da Vinci Code and the apocryphal gospels, such as the Gospel of Judas.”
“These things are nothing more than the gates of hell that are struggling against the Church and from which Jesus promised his protection,” Cardinal Iniguez said. “The Holy Spirit guarantees that she will continue until the end of the world.”
He exhorted young people thus to “not separate yourselves from the Church” and to “defend her, because she is the bark of Peter that brings us to eternal life.”
