"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

Pope calls Moscow airport attack 'grave act of violence'

VATICAN CITY, Straight Times - POPE Benedict XVI on Tuesday condemned as a 'grave act of violence' an attack on a Moscow airport which left 35 people dead and over 100 wounded.

The pope expressed his 'profound sadness and strong reprobation for the grave act of violence,' in an open letter to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Pope Benedict said he also offered 'spiritual support and condolences to the relatives of the victims' and would not forget the wounded in his prayers.

The pope's words come a day after a suspected suicide bombing in the packed arrivals hall of Moscow's largest airport.

The attack, slammed by the Kremlin as an act of terror, was the most deadly to hit the capital after the metro bombings in March.

The suicide bomber may have been part of a group despatched by militants in the Northern Caucasus to bomb the capital, reports said on Tuesday. -- AFP
