“Why do they treat Christians like this?”

UK visas: YES to radical Islamists, NO to Christian archbishops!

It is hard to imagine a more incongruous headline – just as the world’s attention focuses on the liberation of Mosul, the UK government has refused to grant a visa to the Archbishop of Mosul to attend the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox cathedral, a church whose flock includes many refugees fleeing persecution from Islamists in Iraq and Syria………..

……….. Yet, at the same time this is happening, radical Islamist leaders are being told they can have visas – even though they represent organisations or movements that incite violence and persecution against Christians.

First Saturday

“Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion (the First Saturdays), along with the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven”.
– Sister Lucia, 19th March 1939.

20-N

Jose Antonio 20-N

It happened, by an amazing chance, that a fellow-prisoner was a priest, to whom Jose Antonio was allowed access that he might be shriven. At dawn on the 20th November, he bade farewell to his brother and was taken out into a courtyard to be shot. Prophetically anticipating the future plenitude of the movement he created, he stood to face the rifles with two Falangists on one side and two Requetes on the other. He gave a lusty cry of “Arriba Espana” and kissed the crucifix in humility. A moment later his body was dead.

Réquiem ætérnam dona eis, Dómine,
et lux perpétua lúceat eis.
Requiéscant in pace. Amen.
