Jihad just means struggle, not holy war – New York City Education Department’s training sessions try …

@Patriarsije Prudi Just as in previous conversations we have had, when confronted with the truth, you deflect to another issue. We are not discussing the task of Christians. If you are going to address me, please address the issue, which is your comment on Islam, specifically Jihad and painting Islam in a good light.

The ABOMINATION of DESOLATION Standing in New York’s Holy Place

It's sad, isn't it @Wilma Lopez , when we have so much sacrilege in the Church and the world that we have a hard time figuring out which one is worse 🙏 .

February 21st St. Peter Damian, Bishop & Doctor Ora Pro Nobis!

A question easily answered these days . . . mentally and emotionally because they choose to remain in sin and need approval to ease their consciences; spiritually because they are satanically influenced and Satan wants to replace the true Church with his own false church.

@Liam Ronan I remember that picture well! Wikipedia doesn't do it justice. She had electric green eyes that were stunning, They later posted a picture of her once again as she had aged--she had a rough life. (Click the picture to enlarge).
