It Doesn't Matter How Many are Going to be Saved; The Question is are YOU Going to be Saved?

This a terrific way to begin my journey through Lent. Thank you for posting this.

Underground Church ‘doomed to disappear’

So extremely sad. Evidently some indigenous peoples are more spiritually important than others.

Remember #UniteTheClans ? Wherein Fr. Z rants.

As much as I admire the individuals involved, I have to agree with Fr Z's take on this. It is one thing to be noble in one's actions, however, the decision to limit the involvement of those who would have willingly participated to select insiders appears like an act of the 'Nobility' rather than an act of Faith by the Faithful.

Perhaps it is splitting hairs, but Scalfari didn't interview 'the Vatican', he interviewed his good friend Pope Francis. Would it be too much to ask for Pope Francis to 'forcefully deny' his 'friend's' claims? Then again, actions speak louder than words....

“Francis Never Said What Scalfari Attributed To Him”

Why are Pope Bergoglio's attributed marks so surprising? The Abu Dhabi agreement could not have been signed without these theological and philosophical beliefs being held by the pope and, thereby, logically predicating his part in drafting and signing this odious document.
