NYC just put this statue atop a courthouse. It represents resistance to the overturning of Roe v. Wade …
Isn't that the Starbucks mermaid???
1st: I didn't see the United States on the chart. 2nd: I'm surprised by some of these, especially countries in Europe I have visited personally. Many there thought it was 'a curiosity' that an American Catholic wanted to attend Mass on a regular Sunday. I was told "It's not like it's Christmas or something."
Quote: "It is surprising that even for Francis the collapse of the Council Church is a "good thing". Yes, what revolutionaries always think: destroy, ruin, in hopes of building back better, the Great Reset. It's a death cult!!
Gee, look at that white cop harassing that African-American man. Shameful! Where's the MSM?
Quote from the original article from Vatican News: "He said both Creation and our neighbors deserve our respect, but noted that positive change can must about through a “change of heart, vision, and practices.”" Seems confusing - but that's the point. Are these "changes of heart" possible? obligatory?
How do we know it was coffee?? I've witnessed and even served many Masses where the priest needs a sip of water due to a dry mouth, tickle in the throat, etc. This was done so his voice would be clear in pronouncing the prayers. However, wasn't the communion fast so strict then even water was forbidden?
John XIII is hard to figure out. He wrote on St. Joseph, preserving Latin as the language of the Church, but... called the disastrous 2nd Vatican Council. Villain or puppet? (yeah I know he's supposed to be a "saint" - but where's the heroic virtue & miracles?)
There is a world war raging right now for control of land, food, energy, and finances. But this time …
Does he have a 'guardian angel' to erase it like Bishop Fulton Sheen?
Re: point #2 - could this have anything to do with the rumors by some that if a conclave of cardinals is not called within 21 days after Pope Benedict's death, the diocesan priests of Rome would need to meet? I myself thought this was just conspiracy theory stuff, but your comment plus the narrative that is being floated that "conservatives are trying to force Francis out." has me wondering...
Standard Marxist approach - blame your enemy for what you yourself have done! So now we are supposed to think "conservatives" are plotting against the "Pope." What happened in 2013? Ask Biden about how the GOP are threats to democracy & are tampering with "free elections"
Par for the course in this upside down world of ours!
