A world so beset by evil it cannot see what evil has been done.

Please, dear God, in your mercy, bring them all home. Sustain them Lord, and all the adults with them as well. Help them Lord, somehow, in a way only you can accomplish, please bring them home, amen.

My Jesus, mercy.

I would like too ask whether we are correct to pray that these victims of barbarism and their kidnappers alike both find their way home, to Jesus Christ.

Something impossible for me to understand is faithful Christ followers who are all on the side of heretical modernism when it comes to the Great Commission. Is our finite earthly existence more important than the eternal soul?

I am very sad about the barbarism of Hamas, but - especially with the latest torture, rape and murder of so many Jews - I am sad that they likely did not go to Heaven. Is this not the teaching of our Church?

Yes, Darota, all must come to Christ to be saved. However, we know that we are bound by God’s sacraments, He is not. He can act outside them. The question you ask is profound. Can there still be invincible ignorance in this day and age? Well, not only have we stopped preaching to the Jew and Muslim, we tell them to stay where they are. But, what believing Jew or Mohammedan would become Catholic today given the insanity of Bergoglio and the destruction of the faith. It would be truly miraculous for any conversion.

Vox, thank you, and thank you for you post regarding Michael Voris. The information you provided helps.

I often say things knowing that I will lose friends over it. My internal dialogue goes like this: I do not have to do this, I know I can stop the sounds from coming out of my mouth. This will not be received well, I will be rejected as judgemental. No one will want to hear me.

I was hesitant, because stirring trouble is not my goal, even if my actions are usually received as such.

What else can I do? I keep stating what the Church has always taught. Diversity is not our strength. It is as clear as day. There is God's revelation to us we are told to spread. There have also been many books written and events recorded where a plan to overthrow the Catholic Church from within has been openly planned. There has been much said and done to erect a one world religion system. We are under attack, and neither Islam nor Talmud creates our allies. They do not believe in the true God.

I prefer a world where all roads lead to heaven. But no rational honest Catholic believes that this is the teaching of his Church and of Jesus Christ who did not say that he is "a" way, "a" truth and "a" life.

Tough for us. Who would have thought we would live easily and lazily in a Christian civilization and one day we would become enemy number 1 at home?
