Speaking at Marian Shrine in Walsingham England

by Steve Ray on August 3, 2011

Having a great time with on-fire Catholics at the Walsingham Marian Shrine in England.

This shrine started in 1061 and was visited by most of the English kings until it was destroyed by King Henry VIII.

Imagine – Catholics have been taking pilgrimages in the thousands for 1,000 years! More than three times older than the United States.

These are hungry Catholics starved for the truth. Anglicans and other Protestants are converting en masse. A great joy to proclaim the Catholic faith here.

Little time to write now due to poor Internet.

Below are a few pictures.

To see my runs thru the quaint and beautiful countryside to the shrine and Priory visit the two links directly below.

Funny Joke about Denominations

by Steve Ray on August 3, 2011

This is an old joke by Emo Philips, once ranked as the funniest religious joke of all time:

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, “Don’t do it!” He said, “Nobody loves me.” I said, “God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

He said, “Yes.” I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?” He said, “A Christian.” I said, “Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?” He said, “Protestant.” I said, “Me, too! What franchise?” He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?” He said, “Northern Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.” I said, “Me, too!”

Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912.”

I said, “Die, heretic!” And I pushed him over.
