Santiago Pilgrimage Mass to Burgos

by Steve Ray on September 19, 2013

Santiago was exceptional! Watching pilgrims come in from hiking hundreds of miles to the tomb of St. James the Apostle was truly inspiring.

Mass at the Cathedral was also exceptional. Watching the incense burner swinging through the air with eight men operating it spreading incense to the whole church was quite an experience.

St. James, Slayer of Muslims (Moors)

by Steve Ray on September 19, 2013

Sure sounds politically incorrect, eh?

But in Spain – especially at Santiago de Compostela – a city dedicated to St. James – that is a title of St. James, one of Our Lord’s twelve apostles.

Spain has had a rough history with Muslims invading their land. They fought back and eventually pushed the Muslim Moors back into northern Africa.

As the patron saint of Spain, St. James was given the title: Slayer of Muslims.

When Mormons Come Knocking

by Steve Ray on September 19, 2013

Young missionaries, ironically called Elders, spread out over the US at around 19 years old. The spend two years of their lives bringing you the good news of Jesus Christ.

But their “Jesus” is not the Jesus of the Bible and historical Christianity, but the physical son of God through sexual relations. He is the creation of the heretic and cult founder Joseph Smith.

What can you expect when these young men knock on your door? Tho helpful blogs were just posted which may help you.
