“Remember the Alamo; Remember Pearl Harbor; Remember Watergate; Remember 9/11!” we say these things to remind us of past history. We do it to challenge & warn us to be on guard that those events won’t ever happen again. We say it to spur us on to greater courage & confidence. And we need such reminding, for it is so easy to forget these certain events to help us face life & death. Well, you see, Jude has just given all us Christians Christ’s command to fight for the faith that was once for all entrusted to us. He does that because the Church & we Christians are always facing imminent dangers & destruction from the attacks of evil & error. And he has assured us we can defeat these enemies because we are God’s chosen, called, kept, & loved with His multiple mercy & peace.
