    Interview with Father Michael Czerny, Undersecretary of the Migrants and Refugees section of the Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development in view of World Migrant Day, “There is no “common good” based on fear and marginalization”. The Church can do more” ... Many do consider excessive the obsession with national security and closing borders at the cost of fleeing people’s rights and dignity. Many do consider excessive the media’s bias for sensational stories which feed xenophobia and isolationism; and many consider very excessive the way in which politicians create or exaggerate a sense of crisis in order to...

    As ex-Muslim converts to Catholicism warn the Holy Father on the inherent dangers of Islam, it's notable that Cdl. Raymond Burke has been warning Catholics that Muslims' Allah is not the Prince of Peace heralded in Isaiah 9:6. In their sobering letter to Pope Francis, the former Muslims quoted the Quran: ‬ For the Qur'an, ‬Christians "‬are only impurity" (‬Qur'an ‬9.28)‬," "‬the worst of Creation" (‬Qur'an ‬98.6)‬, ‬all condemned to Hell (‬Qur'an ‬4.48)‬, ‬so Allah must exterminate them (‬Quran ‬9.30)‬. They added, "We must not be deceived by the Quranic verses deemed tolerant, ‬because they have all been repealed by the verse...

    The German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has released new figures showing that around 43,000 individuals engaged in integration courses are unable to read or write at all. The 43,000 migrants were placed into special courses meant to help them learn how to both read and write but many have been totally unable to learn how to speak German in the language component of the courses, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung reports. The number of people enrolled in the special courses is an increase of 10 per cent since the same time last year. Although class sizes are small and...

    Ex-Muslims: The pope's "blue-eyed" "towards Islam" is "suicidal and very dangerous". Vatican (kath.net) Earlier Muslims who have become Catholic ask Pope Francis to "quickly convene a synod on the dangers of Islam". This reported "Vatican News". The open letter accuses the Pope of not recognizing the threat posed to Europe by Islam and Muslim refugees. Literally, the letter states that one can not "speak of peace and support Islam as you seem to do". Such "blue-eyed Islam" is "suicidal and very dangerous". After collecting signatures, the letter should be sent to the Pope. The letter is distributed multilingual on the...

    London (AFP) - Delivery rider Jabed Hussain was waiting at a traffic light one night in east London when two attackers sprayed acid in his face and stole his moped. It was one of hundreds of attacks in the British capital every year that have prompted government intervention and left the city's police force asking the public for help to tackle the crime wave. Hussain recalled feeling "burning on my face" during the robbery in Hackney. "If they want to take my bike, there are a lot of weapons... why (have) they got to choose the weapon of acid?" he...

    Bishop: Muslims Have a Right to Islamize Bishop Emmanuel Adetoyese Badejo of Oyo, Nigeria, believes “that Muslims have an Islamisation agenda, and they have a right to have it”, writes the Daily Post (October 15). He lambasted Christians crying foul, noting that they had the opportunity to christianize Nigeria but failed to do so. Badejo said Christians in high offices only know how to engage in bickering and fight for positions, leaving out policies that would favor them.

    Faithful Catholics in Italy are fasting on bread and water and praying the Rosary together throughout the country.  On Friday, the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, the Italian Association Accompanying Marian Sanctuaries (Associazione Italiana Accompagnatori Santuari Mariani, or AIASM) sponsored a nationwide day of fasting, as well as a Rosary. Organizers called it "Rosary at the Border" and praised the Rosary as "the most powerful peace initiative" for their country and the world.  The event's inspiration came from the "Rosary to the Borders" rally in Poland on October 7. Poland's Rosary to the Borders drew well...

    Vatican Radio ^ | September 22, 2017 | News.Va (Official Vatican Network)
    Pope Francis on Friday urged Churches in Europe to step up efforts to combat intolerance, discrimination and xenophobia against migrants and refugees. The pope’s words came in a meeting with national migration directors under the auspices of the Council of European Bishops Conferences or CCEE. He said he was saddened to see that Catholic communities in Europe were also defensive and unwelcoming towards migrants, justifying their attitudes on grounds of conserving their cultural and religious identity.Listen:  Pope Francis said we must recognize and understand this sense of unease, in light of the economic crisis which has left deep wounds in...

    The Catholic Thing ^ | September 23, 2017 | William Kilpatrick
    In a recent article, Fr. James Schall, S.J. argues that “The only real way to eliminate the historic aggressiveness of Islam is to convert its believers.” Yet if you had to bet, “the conversion of the world to Islam is, in the long run, more likely than its conversion to Christianity.” From a purely human perspective, the conversion of Muslims is a tall order. It’s not just that Islam is a tough nut to crack, it’s also that some today – usually Catholics – have an aversion to conversion. (Even the pope had denounced “proselytism.”) In good multicultural fashion, they...

    In a different time and place they could have been Che Guevara or Danton. The terrorists that killed 2,997 people 16 years ago Monday presented the 21st century with a radically different revolutionary than the ones that stormed our imaginations in the 19th and 20th centuries. They didn’t overthrow the world order. They did overthrow our conception of where on the economic strata revolutionaries come from. The 9/11 terrorists did not step out of the pages of Les Misérables. Like most revolutionaries, they stepped out of privileged places. Osama bin Laden, the seventeenth child of a billionaire, appeared as the...

    It is one of the most remarkable churches in all the world, in all of human history. Begun in 1892 and not expected to be finished until 2030, La Sagrada Familia is Antonio Gaudi’s masterpiece. It is odd and wonderful to behold, its barrel-shaped spires springing up all around, its soaring interior arches offering glory to the Holy Family. It is awful to behold, like a fairytale, like something not even Peter Jackson’s set designer could imagine. Alas, it may not stand for long for it has been targeted by Islamists and the weakness of the Church in Catalonia and...

    "The murderers are guilty, but the mayor of Barcelona was obviously negligent because she refused to secure the Rambla area for reasons of ideological correctness." Santiago Martin, well-known priest and founder of the Franciscans of Mary, last Sunday during the sermon in his parish referred to the refusal of Mayoress Ada Colau to secure Rambla by traffic bollards as the government in Madrid had demanded. On 17 August, five men in the pedestrian zone rushed into the crowd with a vehicle. 14 people were killed in the terror attack by the Islamic State (IS), and we're 130 injured. Colau, mayor...

    For almost two millennia, Christianity has survived innumerable challenges from without, including heresies, schisms and philosophical “isms,” as well as more than a few challenges from within. But the most dangerous challenge of all may be one that was overcome seven centuries ago but is now regenerated—the challenge posed by Islam. Its agents no longer wield battle axes and scimitars, as their militant predecessors did. They travel instead in the peaceful garb of immigrants and refugees. Their stated purpose for migrating is to find opportunity or to escape persecution and in many cases that claim is no doubt genuine. Yet...

    Years ago I was brought in as a priest to a psych ward in a VA hospital to work with a suicidal Vietnam veteran. His family was convinced that the root of his problem was not merely mental but diabolical. After spending some time with the tormented veteran, I agreed that something diabolical was at work. One thing I remember the veteran saying was that he “danced with the devil.” I shudder at the thought! So I prayed the Rosary with him, taught him the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel and enrolled him in the scapular. For a while...

    Why is it that Catholic bishops seem to be plumping for Muslims? Why do they issue statements about Islam that are dishonest and misleading? Why do they appear to be so intent on protecting the image of Islam? If you’ve asked yourself these questions, you’re not alone. Given current events and the historical record of Islam’s aggressive campaigns against the Christian West, the rational thinker could be forgiven for believing that the leaders of the Christian world might just want to pay a bit more attention to contemporary anti-Christian violence — thousands of terror attacks, beheadings, stabbings, kidnappings, rapes, torching...

    Pope Francis received a noteworthy honor last week when Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Cairo’s al-Azhar, thanked him for his “defense of Islam against the accusation of violence and terrorism.”Has any other Pope of Rome in the history of Christianity ever been heralded as a “defender of Islam”?Of course not. But the Catholic Church has come a long way since the days of Pope Callixtus III, who vowed in 1455 to “exalt the true Faith, and to extirpate the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet in the East.”If time travel could be arranged and Pope Francis could...
