"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

Assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II carried out by Islamic terrorists, Polish communist leader claims

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER (Read comments at IslamizationWatch)

The assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II was carried out under orders from Islamic terrorists, Poland's last communist leader has claimed. 
The Polish-born pope almost died in the attempt when Turkish sniper Mehmet Ali Agca shot him with four rounds in St Peter's Square in the Vatican in 1981. 
An official inquiry into the shooting blamed Soviet-sponsored assassins who wanted the pope dead because of his support for the democracy movement Solidarity. 
But now General Wojciech Jaruzelski - who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer - claims Islamic fanatics sponsored the would-be assassination. 
'Radical Islam detested the pope and saw in him a leader of crusades,' he told Poland's 'Jezus' Catholic magazine.
With less than a month to go before the beatification of the late pope in Rome on May 1, the former general's comments are likely to reopen long-held misgivings in Poland about the shooting 30 years ago. 
Many in Poland have placed the blame at the feet of the communist authorities and will now see Mr Jaruzelski's claims as an attempt to confuse the matter further. 
But rejecting the long-standing theory of Soviet, or Bulgarian, communist involvement in the attempt, he said: 'The Islamic trail would seem the most logical.' 
The pope was shot as he was driven through a packed St Peter's Square on May 13, 1981. He was hit four times, but survived after emergency surgery. 
His assassin Mehmet Ali Agca was a trained sniper. Three Bulgarians, including airline 
representative Sergein Antonov, were also tried after Agca claimed he had been acting on behalf of the Soviets. 
Although Agca was sentenced, the case against the Bulgarians fell apart due to a lack of evidence. 
Mr Jaruzelski said the court was right to drop the charges. 
He said: 'During a visit to Bulgaria in 1982 or 1983, I candidly asked Todor Zhivkov, then Secretary of the Communist Party, "Comrade Todor, what can you tell me in confidence about the Bulgarian trail?" 
'He answered, "Comrade Jaruzelski, do you take us for a mass of fools? Do you think that we would leave Antonov in his place if he was really involved in an attack?"' 
He added that 'there were various countries and various forces that wanted the pope to be eliminated, but it does not mean that they gave Ali Agca the order to kill him'. 
It had been suggested that Mr Jaruzelski should attend the beatification ceremony at the Vatican.
But he has turned the invitation down due to poor health and being diagnosed with cancer.
Could it be possible since Islamic Extremists and moderates expressed that willful desire to conquer Rome and the World? - CD2000
