April 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Austin Ruse has a new book out. It’s called Under Siege: No Finer Time to Be a Faithful Catholic. It’s an excellent overview of just how much the world is engulfed in sin and darkness. It’s also an optimistic book that argues Catholics are blessed to be alive in this period of history.
“There’s not a lot you need to do to make the world a better place these days because we are awash in problems,” Austin told me on my show today. “We live in a target-rich environment for doing good.”
For those who don’t know, Austin Ruse is the president of the Center for Family and Human Rights at the United Nations.
Despite having what he calls “theological hope,” he did warn that “a new state Church” is rising in America and Canada, and that it’s been able to position itself as an established religion.
“All these things are a new religion,” he said, referring to the widespread acceptance of abortion, transgenderism, and secularism.
“In the book … I don’t go into gross detail … but I do go through a broad range of issues that show how dark the world is that we’re really living in.”
It is also available in audio format on platforms such as Spotify, Soundcloud, and ACast. We are awaiting approval for iTunes and Google Play as well. To subscribe to the audio version on various channels, visit the ACast webpage here.
