A dire notes as the year begins.
First, from Express about Catholics under siege at a parish near Milan.
‘They’ll LYNCH us!’ Church PLEADS with police for assistance in evicting migrants
A CHRISTIAN priest has pleaded for help in evicting a group of migrants squatting in a nearby building – with the church warning “we can’t wait for them to come and lynch us”.
They said the group of “North Africans” were chasing church-goers, scaring children and putting the area “under siege”.
They also said a collection box at the church in Italy had been forced open – sparking a furious reaction from Father Francesco Inversini.
He said the migrants, sheltering in a building near the church of Cristo Re in Milan were “free to do” anything.
The church’s administrator, who only wanted to be identified as Tommasso for fear of reprisals, went further.
He warned the migrants were part of an ongoing crime spree in the area – and claimed the church’s staff could be lynched if police do not do anything.
Tommasso said: “I do not say my name because those guys can kill me, but here, parents and parishioners are angry.
There’s some video.
Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.
St. Lawrence of Brindisi, pray for us.
St. Pius V, pray for us.
Martyrs of Otranto, pray for us.
Our Lady of Victor, pray for us.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
These Catholics need to practice mercy more.
Of course I’m being sarcastic, this makes me seethe. God help our brothers and sisters who are suffering a very real invasion. That this invasion is even now being encouraged by this pope and our church is something I can’t even put a name to. In some frustration I would say to Catholics and Christians that they must vote for people who will protect THEM, and who comprehend the obvious outcome of opening the gates to barbarians. Europeans seem to have such an attitude of helplessness, it’s going to ensure the loss of their lives, culture, and land. There is no other alternative, you must fight to survive!
Don’t worry, it’s all fake news. That’s the left’s latest way of closing their eyes and ears to what is actually going on in the real world. Or pretending that it’s just some Russian-inspired plot. Anything which allows them to perpetuate their closed minds to things which suggest that, perhaps, there might be the teeniest thing wrong with their ideology.
The USCCB has never acknowledged, not once, that illegal aliens kill Americans through murder, drunk driving, etc. This occurs about 25 times each day. The USCCB has never mentioned the rapes, robberies, and burglaries committed daily by illegal aliens. At last, Catholics have awakened to the dire need to vote for public officials who will protect them from their Pope and bishops.
To quote Pope Benedict: “the West has passed from self criticism to self destruction.” These bleeding heart liberals and their imprudent foolhardy definition of “charity” is anything but charitable. Look at what Merkel and her brand of “charity” is doing to a whole region of the world. It’s not charity when the common good is unraveled. It’s not charity when it’s done with a broad brush or a sweeping political declaration like Merkel has done to Germany. Jesus individualized His actions and He wasn’t a merciful slob. Prudence is a forgotten virtue that should govern all others.
Fr. Vincent Fitzpatrick, in our house the USCCB has lost all credibility. We no longer listen to them. The willful blindness to the reality of Islam was the final straw. Whatever disorder causes these men to be silent or complicit in the takeover of the West has ended up being more than we could tolerate. They have effectively put a wedge between themselves and the people. I’m sure we are not alone in this. We view them as a political entity.
You are not alone Kathleen10. Christians in the US and other countries are welcoming the
Trojan Horse with open arms and Cardinal Burke has already pointed out where this will lead.
Thank you for this post Fr. Z and thank you for your comment Fr. Fitzpatrick.
The Trojan Horse was presented as a gift. This monstrosity of applying the phrase, “welcoming the immigrant” to your replacement population is unthinkably sick; as in mentally ill.
Europe must surely not be teaching or studying history, from the fall of Rome (foreign invaders, think Goths, Ostrogoths, Huns, Vandals and the onslaught of Islam).
Still the greater lesson that all of the West has failed to learn is from poem by William Ross Wallace, “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Is the Hand That Rules the World”. Finding our supposed “fulfillment” in this world in something other than family is worse than a full-on war.
I’ve been over to Veneto a couple times recently with an Italian friend. There are African immigrants wandering all over the place–the national government takes them in and settles them in small towns.
But no one seems interested in evangelising them…
Europussies at their finest. Turn the other cheek whilst you crack the cudgel in the nether regions of the North Africans, should just about do it. Will they counter attack? No…bullies run.
