Mass with the Local Christians in Jerusalem

Local Catholic Palestinian Family from Jerusalem

Wonder what it is like to join the local Christians for Sunday morning Mass in the Holy Land? Well, now you will know. As is our pleasurable habit, Janet and I arrive a little ahead of our pilgrimage group to make sure everything is set and ready for their arrival. 

Today we joined the local Christians for Mass at their local parish St. Xavier’s inside the Old City walls of Jerusalem. Again it demonstrates the beauty of the Universal Church and the sacred liturgy that is prayed the same around the world. Two weeks ago I shared our Mass with Africans in Istanbul, today Palestinians in Jerusalem.

I hope you enjoy this little snippet and that you pray for them and support them. They are only 1.5% of the population in the Holy Land and life is very difficult for the here. They need our prayers and support.

Obama’s Incredible Pro-Life Video

by Steve Ray on January 26, 2014

I posted this in honor of all the dead babies who never got to take their first breath, hear their mother’s voice, receive a smile from a waiting world or to experience life. Roe vs. Wade is a travesty for our country. Obama explains it best in this video.

You’ll never believe he said it. President Obama is responsible for some of the most moving pro-life rhetoric I’ve heard.

Even though he is speaking about the slaughter of children in a school, with images of the unborn juxtaposed on the screen, it makes a powerful pro-life statement

Please watch this brilliant video from Blackstone Films. Like this post, share it, spread it far and wide. This video speaks truth to power so eloquently, juxtaposes the hypocrisy of our concern for our children against the ongoing promotion of their legal slaughter. Thanks to for sharing this.
