Terror bombing at Nairobi church
A suicide bombing at a Christian church in Nairobi, Kenya, killed at least one person and left 16 badly injured on Sunday morning, April 29. The grenade blast inside God's House of Miracles...

The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

This is so sad. It is so sad that there are Christians in the world that are so horribly persecuted. We Catholics here in the United States are being persecuted by Barack Obama with his HHS contraceptive mandate but the persecution we are enduring is nothing compared to what the Catholics in other parts of the world are enduring. However, if we don't fight back against the persecution we are currently enduring, it may get to the point where persecution becomes that severe here in the United States as well. If you give them an inch, they'll take a mile.
