The 500 Year Christian Divorce Party

Divorce PartyOctober 31, 2017 is the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, or as some call it, revolution. Among many changes to Christianity, the would be ‘reformers’ proposed that is a new theological doctrine; that the Christian Scriptures are the sole infallible rule of faith and practice. In other words, modern protestant christians, and the reformers from 500 years ago, claim that the Holy Scripture has authority in all matters above anything any preacher says, above what any ancient church council said, or above any teaching of the Catholic Church.

I was raised a protestant (mostly pentecostal) christian, and believed that for years until….

As a young ‘would-be’ youth minister, I began working with troubled youth, most of them from broken, dysfunctional families. In working with these youth, even an amateur could quickly figure out that our society would be much better off with family units kept together, without divorce, in other words,  mommies and daddies staying married.

Some 9/11’s To Remember

IMG_0864

Why 9-11? We’ve forgotten, they haven’t. Why do muslims prefer to attack western society on some dates more than others? We in the west have been taught to apologize for the Christian society we once were or have willfully forgotten our Catholic Christian heritage. But Islam has not forgotten history nor their monumental military defeats they have suffered at the hands of devout Catholic Christians.
Battle of Malta,
September 11th, 1565.

At dawn may 18th, 1665, 200 ships had been sent by Suleiman the Magnificent, Sultan of the Ottoman Turks.
His intent was to destroy the knights of malta who had for a long time been a thorn in his side, and then go to march on Rome.
With him were 40,000 fighting men, including 6,000 of Suleiman’s elite infantry, the Janissaries, not to mention another 9,000 cavalry and seventy huge siege cannon, one or two of which were capable of hurling 600lb stones a mile and a half.

Opposing this force were just 600 knights, a few thousand mercenaries and a few thousand Maltese irregulars – in all between 6,000 and 9,000 men.

Once Malta fell, which Suleiman’s commanders thought should take a week, the Turks would evict the Catholic Spanish from Tunis and then invade Sicily and Italy.

The battle finally ended September 11th, with only 10,000 muslim soldiers returning defeated, and a handful of christian survivors, but Europe and christendom was saved.

September 11th 1609, the final expulsion of muslims from Spain. A great day for Catholic Christians.

The Battle of Vienna, September 11th, 1683. Only the Catholic Polish came to help the besieged Viennese as the protestant wars tied up the rest of Europe. But victory was miraculously granted to the Christians as they were vastly outnumbered, yet prevailed over the Muslim hordes.

Battle of Zenta, September 11, 1697, yugoslavia. The Ottoman army was again trying to sneak into Europe, when Prince Eugene of Savoy, who led the Holy League forces, lost only 300 men, but islam lost 30,000 men.

We descendents of once great Catholic Europe may have forgotten these 9/11’s, but Islam, the perfect Protestant heresy has not, and won’t. Lord have Mercy.

Let us return quickly to the Faith and God of our Fathers. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Let us quickly return to the Faith in Christ that converted our pagan ancestors and rebuild Christian society; return to that tried and true tradition handed down by the Apostles and their successors.

Glory to Jesus Christ.

The Mission That Grows in Beauty

I bowed, made the sign of the Cross and sat in the third pew I watched as tourists marched in clanking the door handles, talking loudly and allowing children to run back and forth, showing no reverence for a Continue reading “The Mission That Grows in Beauty”
