One of the most inspiring and sobering stories from the Nazi resistance movement came from a resistance group in Munich called White Rose.
Recently, I read from the Fourth Leaflet of the White Rose group. The words could not be more pertinent for today:
Everywhere and at all times demons lurk in the dark, waiting for the moment when man is weak; when of his own volition he leaves his place in the order of creation as founded for him by God … When he yields to the force of evil, he separates himself from the powers of a higher order; and after voluntarily taking the first step, he is driven on to the next and the next at a furiously accelerating rate. Man is free, to be sure, but without the true God he is defenseless against evil. He is like a rudderless ship, at the mercy of the storm, an infant without his mother, a cloud dissolving into thin air.
