I saw the video below on Facebook. You have to watch it! HT: Fr. Richard Heilman
The Holy Father has spoken out about this major atrocity, yet our nation and no other is standing up for the rights of Iraqi Christians. Watch this video and ask yourself if you are ready for a persecution, or even willing to sacrifice for the freedoms we have today.
Crosses have been removed from churches, churches have been burnt to the ground. The lastMass said in the city of Mosul was on June 22nd. The faith has been in Mosul, and Mass has been said in that city for 1,600 years up until now.
We have one defense an it isn’t weapons of mass destruction. We have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Holy Rosary. The Battle of Lepanto was won through the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. All odds were agains the Christian armies protecting Europe from the invasion of the Ottoman Empire. “The Holy League credited the victory to the Virgin Mary, whose intercession with God they had implored for victory through the use of the Rosary. Andrea Doria had kept a copy of the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe given to him by King Philip II of Spain in his ship’s state room. Pope Pius Vinstituted a new Catholic feast day of Our Lady of Victory to commemorate the battle, which is now celebrated by the Catholic Church as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.” (WP)
If we do not become the Catholics that God expects us to be, we can expect things to degrade even more, but if we embrace the Gospel and the message of Fatima, we can change the world!
