**Battling Evil

        Two weeks ago on May 18, Italy's conservative and Catholic interior minister, Matteo Salvini, publicly commended his party's work to the six patron saints of Europe and then, holding up a rosary, publicly entrusted his life and work to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the mother of Jesus, for help and protection. On May 21 in Brazil inside the presidential palace, government leaders and two bishops in a ceremony signed off on a consecration of the country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Many movements have also sprung up worldwide to fight suppression, corruption, and godlessness in general. In the US, we have the #WalkAway movement, Turning Point USA, Young Americans for Freedom, Blexit for blacks, and Jexit for Jews (the last two names both mimicking Brexit). When the world is in dire need of warding off evil, God does raise leaders and call his people into action.
