Or are you being tortured by pastoral musicians who interrupt your prayer and nag you for not practicing songs before Mass. And then they do those drama queen, sweeping gestures like they are conducting a symphony and your are in their orchestral pit? How about the lectors, altar servers, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Do they seem too ...http://crusadermaximus.tumblr.com/post/94351522744
Great Saints and Martyrs Knew How to Fight Evil DA MIHI ANIMAS - July 5, 2014 ... tactics: The Screwtape Letters . Written in 1939, when the bombs started falling in Britain, Lewis tried to warn his countrymen that there's one enemy of Christians even worse than the Nazis.

Wormwood delights at the declaration of war, hoping that killing, rape, destruction, and evil of all kinds will ensue. Screwtape ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/07/great-saints-and-martyrs-knew-how-to.html

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord , but the Lord was not in the wind.

What Does Scripture Really Say About Judging Others? THE CONTEMPLATIVE CATHOLIC CONVERT - May 11, 2014 ... thieves, and other criminals. A society without authority to judge others would result in complete anarchy. That is why St. Paul refers to governments as having been "established by God" for the protection of its citizenry (Romans 13:1-6). But what about individual Christians?
