"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

In the Name of God, the Compassionate! The Most Merciful God!

Photos below were forwarded to me by a friend in the office (Regie Bantog) which I was moved with pity. These undated photos were said to be taken from Iran. Looking from the photos, it was not the boy's nature to steal but he was a victim of his society's illness and greed that he had no food to survive the day. Unable to quench his immense hunger for food, he took a piece of bread. Because of that mistake, his hand was literally cut off and the process was very inhuman!

Thugs of self proclaimed "righteous" people in his society, instead of giving him life, they punished him for a sin which he had no control of!

In the name of God, the most merciful! The Most Compassionate!

  2. This is "Fatihah", one can relate to this only when he/she daily recites this Fatihah... If you are not obliged to say this, I don't expect you to understand why there is no "apropos continuation..."

    God bless.
