Why do we endure persecution and calumny?

Daily Prayers for True American Patriots.

From the Mass for the 23rd. Sunday after Pentecost.
Introit. Jer 29, 11,12,14

The Lord said, I think thoughts of peace, and not of affliction: you shall call upon Me, and I will hear you; and I will bring back your captivity from all places. Lord, Thou hast blessed Thy land: Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen

Remit, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the sins of Thy people, that by Thy kindness we may be delivered from the trammels of our sins, in which, through our frailty, we have become entangled. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost,  God, world without end. Amen

Epistle. Philip.3, 17-21 4, 1-3
Bretheren, be ye followers of me, and observe them who walk so as you have our model. For many walk, of whom I have told you often (and now tell you weeping) that they are enemies of the cross of Christ; whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame; who mind earthly things. But our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ, 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 bretheren, dearly beloved, and most desired, my joy and my crown; so stand fast in the Lord. I beg of Evodia, and I beseech Syntyche to be of one mind in the Lord: and I entreat thee also, my sincere companion, help those women who have labored with me in the gospel with Clement and the rest of my fellow-laborers, whose names are in the book of life.

Explanation (from Rev. Leonard Goffine, 1875)
"There are unhappily many Christians, who, as St. Paul complains, are declared enemies of Christ's cross, who do not wish to mortify their senses, who only think of graifying their lusts, and, as it were, find their only pleasure, even seek their honor, in despising the followers of Jesus and His saints on the narrow path of the cross, of mortification and humiliation. What will be the end of these people? Eternal perdition! For he who does not crucify the flesh, does not belong to Christ. (Gal. v.24.) He who does not bear the marks of the mortification of Jesus in his body, in  him the life of Christ shall not be manifested. (ii Cor. iv. 10.) He who does not walk in heaven during his life-time, that is, who does not direct his thoughts and desires heavenward, and despise the world and it's vanitites, will not find admission there after his death."

PS.43, 8, 9

Thou hast delivered us, O Lord, from them that afflict us: and hast put them to shame that hate us. In God we will glory all the day; and in Thy name we will give praise for ever. Alleluia, alleluia. From the depths I have cried to Thee O Lord: Lord, hear my prayer. Alleluia

Amen I say to you, whatsoever, you ask when you pray, believe that you shall receive, and it shall be done to you.
We pray Thee O Almighty God, that Thou wilt not suffer to overcome by human dangers those to whom Thou grantest participation in things that are divine. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen
