When Christian-owned buildings are confiscated, they are being marked with the Arabic letter nun, which is the first letter of the Arabic word "Nasara" (i.e. Nazarenes) - the word Muslims use to refer to Christians.

IS leaders said that they plan to "liberate" the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah from the "hands of the infidels," an epithet which it uses indiscriminately in reference to Muslims and non-Muslims who oppose its brutal methods.

The last of the great rules is that of St Francis, symbolised by the strong, grey horses pulling his chariot of grey friars. Why do they go to the land of the south? At first I wondered if this could be a reference to the evangelisation of South America; but the Dominicans were prominent in this as well. Perhaps then it stands for some future great effort of evangelisation of the ...http://exlaodicea.wordpress.com/2014/08/08/the-four-chariots/

But if it helps, Our Lord even told us it would be so, with the parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3-8, 18-23). Some Christians, as I pointed out the other day , just don't get Christianity; they view it through the prism of ideology, or tailor it to adapt to their preferred life styles, or selectively ignore that which they'd rather not accept. The most intolerable example is the ...http://impracticalcatholic.blogspot.com/2014/08/holding-on-to-faith-in-imperfect-church.html

From a distance, we ask ourselves, what to do? It is good that our Prime Minister has condemned this violence in Iraq. We can urge the Canadian government to use its full diplomatic influence to support the demands of the Archbishops of Mosul, led by His Beatitude Patriarch Mar Louis Raphael Sako. These faith leaders have urged the Iraqi national government to: • Provide full protection of all religious rights and those of ...http://archdioceseoftoronto.blogspot.com/2014/08/cardinal-collins-canada-can-do-more-to.html

Mr Bean LAODICEA - August 2, 2014 Only once, I think, have I met a Catholic from Chaldea (may God have mercy on them and convert their murderers). It was about thirteen or fourteen years ago. He came from a town or village where they spoke Aramaic as their mother tongue. His English was stumbling. I do not now remember what turn of fortune or misfortune had brought him into Wessex, where I then lived. Some friends of mine and I entertained him; and as we sat down to dine, this stranger ...http://exlaodicea.wordpress.com/2014/08/02/mr-bean/

He responds, in part: By acting on anger, we can cross into sinful anger very easily, and become tools ...http://te-deum.blogspot.com/2014/08/saint-alphonsus-love-is-not-prone-to.html

It's a bad thing in that born Catholics tend to look down on you. But being looked down upon has its advantages. Like what? You don't put yourself forward as an expert. You understand other people who are in similar situations, and not only in religious matters. I once met Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who we're trying to get made a saint now.

Well, size only counts with football players, really. But did Sheen feel saintly? Did he have a quality of holiness? He had a quality of something really quite extraordinary. I was at a party once for locally important politicians—a former governor of Illinois, for example. And Sheen came through as somebody who was actually on a higher level.

Considering what is going on in the Middle East, I am somewhat loathe to use the word here, but I'm taking the comments at face value.

What Can Christians Do to Help Persecuted Christians in the Middle East AGGIE CATHOLICS - July 25, 2014 ... little to support the Christians who are now refugees from persecution and threats. Many others have been killed, raped, and abducted. A new religious cleansing is now taking place. A genocide. Of course, since we are not the decision makers in this area, we have to rely on others. The first one we always rely on is God. So, please do not stop praying. I know sometimes we Christians can sometimes downplay the power of prayer too much.

Martyrs of Otranto Pray for the Nazarenes JOE CATHOLIC - July 25, 2014 ... Lumen Gentium they exhorted: The Church, then, considers martyrdom as an exceptional gift and as the fullest proof of love. By martyrdom a disciple is transformed into an image of his Master by freely accepting death for the salvation of the world—as well as his conformity to Christ in the shedding of his blood. Though few are presented such an opportunity, nevertheless all must be prepared to confess Christ before men. They must be prepared to make this profession of faith even in the ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/07/martyrs-of-otranto-pray-for-nazarenes.html
