Stand Firm

Today's epistle 

Be firm in your mind, heart, soul, body. Do not give in to cynicism, heresy, false prophets, ennui.

Those who are against Christ and His Church will be "lost" as some translations of verse 19 state.

The remnant will be very small. 

Pray, do penance, stay close to Christ in the Eucharist.

Philippians 3:17-4:1Douay-Rheims 

17 Be ye followers of me, brethren, and observe them who walk so as you have our model.
18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often (and now tell you weeping), that they are enemies of the cross of Christ;
19 Whose end is destruction; whose God is their belly; and whose glory is in their shame; who mind earthly things.
20 But our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ,
21 Who will reform the body of our lowness, made like to the body of his glory, according to the operation whereby also he is able to subdue all things unto himself.
Therefore, my dearly beloved brethren, and most desired, my joy and my crown; so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
