Poland's Anti-Immigrant March

Warsaw, Poland

"This is Poland. This is OUR land. OUR country. OUR rules and values. Here - Jesus Christ is our KING. We are not interested in any European directives nor immigration quotas. I repeat: These are not our wars. It is not our culture. It is not our faith and not our immigrants."

"Here - Jesus Christ is our KING"

Wow, Wow, What a courageous and wonderful move!!!!! Why don't we learn from the Polish people who are giving us an example of faith.....Why are we such cowards, afraid of speaking the truth and proclaiming Jesus Christ our King????? And why is it that Our Church is also not only afraid but rather indifferent to the fact that the Muslims want to conquer the world?
May St. John Paul intercede for us all and may we all learn from the Polish people. May God bless all and each one of them.

Amen! M.T. Amen!

I am going to start a novena to St. John Paul II today. The Polish people know history is repeating itself.

Recall that John Paul II kissed the Koran in public. Might that have been one of the most blasphemous acts of the 20th century? The indifferentism promulgated by Vatican II brought us here. Our Lady of Fatima pray for us!

I know the popes kiss the gifts that are given to them, and that Pope John Paul II took the Koran and kissed it along with the other gifts, mostly likely unthinkingly or to just show respect to the Muslim people, but it certainly did not seem to be prudent. In hindsight it would have been better for him just to take it, and set it aside. Perhaps the popes should stop kissing gifts. It does not seem to be a good idea.

After that I showed my disapproval, while on a liturgy committee, to a Hindu priest praying a Hindu prayer for the dead in front of an altar in a Catholic church. I told the committee, after I talked to several priest from other Catholic churches, that it was all right for the Hindus to sit among the parishioners to show respect, but not for them to say a Hindu prayer in front of a Catholic altar. They were going to allow the Hindu priest to do it anyway, so I went to another Catholic church for the Mass for the dead. I do not know all that went on at the other church.

I realized later that the priest who allowed it had family who were still Buddhists, and his mother was a convert, so there was a lot of confusion about what was or was not idolatry. It was a very touchy situation, but I just could not go along with it as the prayer was addressed to Hindu gods. I had to follow my own conscience because that is the how the Lord will judge me. From what I have read, others have had to go through similar experiences as mine.

May the Good Lord gives us all the wisdom and fortitude to do the right thing when the time comes for us to make such judgments.

The Anonymous posts on June 11 at 3:21pm on June 11 and the one on June 13 at 2:16pm were both mine. I am from California, and we have to deal with a lot more confusion such as this than some parts of the United States where the people are more homogenous.

Many Vietnamese Americans honor Our Lady of La Vang, but certainly would not allow Hindu prayers to other gods in their churches. It depends on how well educated in Church teaching the person is, no matter what ethnic group.
