"I hardly know how to share this. Our beautiful, little parish, St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church, in Lubbock, TX was vandalized and trashed last night.
Someone/more than one (?) broke in and destroyed whatever they wanted. The stained glass window where we hold our babies to the light ... Holy things in the altar ... Icons of Christ and His mother, the saints - thrown and smashed ... The tomb of Christ we celebrate that is EMPTY hauled across the building and thrown into the refrigerator ... They ripped the cross off the doors, even, and threw the crown of thorns outside.
Our little kitchen where we make meals, parish hall where parishioners and visitors alike gather together after services, and bookstore with little crosses for sale (stolen) - all trashed. They even destroyed the little hot water heater that we finally installed after 12 years (thanks to the generosity of a few parishioners who had just paid for it ).
So many things I can't even list here. …More

Heroic Faith - Saturday, June 12, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
At 8:06am, what began as a peaceful Saturday morning ended abruptly as a crowd assembled before the doors St. Paul’s Church in Brooklyn chanting “This church harasses women! This church harasses women!”
As the altar bell rang and the faithful rose from the pews of the diocese oldest continuously operating church, the reason everyone inside…and outside the church, albeit for different reasons, began; to Celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and to offer prayers for all of those affected by abortion.
As voices rose in song against the chanting beyond the doors, a cacophonous symphony of opposing notes and points of view echoed against the frescoed walls.
As Mass concluded the faithful stepped from the peace of the church they entered the gauntlet.
Rage filled screams, taunts and attempts to prevent them from peacefully praying as they walked to a nearby abortion …More

Gorgeous liturgy!. Also... if you had a dollar for every Covid mask being worn, you couldn't buy a packet of crackers at the corner variety store.

I hope at least one Muslim jihadist had to wipe Mr. Nnadi's spit off his face. ;-)

Today on the steps of St Patricks Cathedral Parramatta NSW - a group of concerned parents and faithful peacefully prayed The Holy Rosary and silently protested against the Catholic Diocese Of Parramatta who are leading their Faithful in the wrong direction and blatantly enforcing a New Religious Curriculum that is conflicting with the teachings of the Catholic Catechism and wants to remove parental primacy.

What happened to tar and feathering? Do you think Our Lord would mind seeing some of His not so loyal Shepard's looking like the fowl that they are?
