"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

BREAKING NEWS! Paris, France under coordinated attack by Muslim Terrorists!

‘It’s a horror’: Hollande orders French borders closed after Paris terror attack leaves at least 40 dead

Several dozen people were killed Friday in the deadliest attacks to hit Paris since the Second World War, French President Francois Hollande said, announcing that he was closing the country’s borders and declaring a state of emergency.

At least 40 people died in shootings and explosions at at least six sites, many of them in a popular concert hall where patrons were taken hostage, police and medical officials said. The series of attacks gripped the city in fear and recalled the horrors of the Charlie Hebdo carnage just 10 months ago.

“We don’t know where this menace is coming from, but they are terrorists.” Hollande said and that “any means necessary” will be used to neutralize terrorists.

The three locations that were subjected to simultaneous shootings:

Le Petit Cambodge, a restaurant in the 11th Arrondissement
Le Bataclan, a venue in the 11th Arrondissement that is now the site of a hostage crisis.
La Belle Equipe, a restaurant in the 11th Arrondissement

Three police officials confirm that security forces have launched an assault on the Paris concert hall where hostages have been taken.

Additionally, a police union official says there were two suicide attacks and a bombing near the national stadium where France and Germany were playing a friendly match.

The official, Gregory Goupil of the Alliance Police Nationale, whose region includes the area of the stadium, said there were at least three dead in the attacks near the stadium, near two of the entrances and a McDonalds restaurant. He said the explosions went off simultaneously. He did not provide more details.

200 soldiers have been dispatched into the 10th and 11th arrondissements, the epicenter of the attack. A state of emergency has been declared.

The Metro is closed, taxis have fled the downtown. Parisians are returning home on foot. Parts of the city are becoming eerily quiet.
