Recollections of Martyrdom in an Age of Terrorism CRISIS MAGAZINE - August 12, 2016 The most dramatic part of being a Catholic lies in our calling to be ready for martyrdom. While not all of us are called to be actual martyrs, killed out of hatred for the Faith, the headlines announcing murders by ISIS and others who hate the Church and her members remind us that we could receive such a calling. The four Missionaries of Charity sisters killed in Yemen and Fr. Jacques Hamel, killed while saying Mass in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/sdJ6VHxirv0/recollections-martyrdom-age-terrorism

«Pour Lui, Partir Au Moment Où Il Célebrait La Messe, C'est Une Forme De Consécration...». THE CITY AND THE WORLD - July 26, 2016 I awoke this morning to the horrific news of the attack in the French town of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray by Islamist militants who invaded a Catholic church in the midst of daily Mass, taking the faithful hostage and murdering an eighty-five-year-old priest, Father Jacques Hamel .

Good Christian, WAKE UP!!! LITTLE CATHOLIC BUBBLE - July 3, 2016 ... suddenly no longer "allowed" to operate according to the dictates of their Christian faith. Make no mistake: Secular progressives (who are as fervent about their secular religion as any Christian is about Christ) are not bringing these lawsuits because of any lack of access to gay dating sites, or wedding cakes, flowers, or photographers, nor is there any lack of access to abortifacient pills and devices (all these things are ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/LittleCatholicBubble/~3/hDn83RZF4Bc/good-christian-wake-up.html

More lived and died according to that priority, using it to guide his public and private life with integrity and grace: that's why he continues to fascinate us.

He mounted a defense of Christendom that is still ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/4Y3fRUa8Hb4/st-thomas-defender-christendom

(June 16) as "orthodox" or profoundly "pastoral", or even as presaging some sort of doctrinal "deepening" or "development". This has resulted in Pope Francis' scarcely less explosive statements on Saturday, June 18, at Villa Nazareth University College getting buried in the news. He spoke these in a rambling Q & A in front of a large audience mostly of young men and women. Don't go to the Vatican website to read what he said.
