“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

If You Think Our Faith is Not Under Attack...

From DelawareOnline:

"Thieves broke into St. Michael the Archangel in Georgetown last weekend, tore the tabernacle from the wall, took it outside and threw it on the ground. Communion wafers were scattered around, and a chalice and monstrance were stolen.

The church has been defiled and has been closed to worship," said Joan Ilgenfritz, administrative assistant at the church at 202 Edward St.

It will be reopened after the pastor, the Rev. Daniel J. McCloskey, can sprinkle the sanctuary with holy water and offer a special set of prayers to resanctify the space, said Monsignor Joseph Rebman, vicar general of the Diocese of Wilmington."

Police said they were looking for cash, but the poor boxes were not hit. I will write the local police and tell them to go over to Pharyngula and check patrons who live in Delaware. It, in my opinion, will shorten their search.

Of course the poor boxes wouldn't be harmed. 'Humanity' wasn't the target. Catholics were.

If these individuals are so convinced that we Catholics are the most hypocritical people on the earth's surface, why don't some of them convert, then, and show us how Christianity should be done?
