October 2017 primates meeting scheduled
The Archbishop of Canterbury has quietly asked the primates of the Anglican Communion to reserve the week beginning Monday, October 2, 2017 for the next primates meeting...
Jacques Hamel, murdered yesterday by Islamist terrorists at the age of 85, has been called the first priest-martyr of Western Europe in the 21st century.
But before his death, he insisted that holiness lay in ordinary life.
On All Saints’ Day last year, he wrote in the parish newsletter: “Do not think holiness is not for us.” He told parishioners that holiness did not necessarily mean “doing extraordinary things”, but could mean living a simple existence like that of the Martin family...image
No Matter How Many Priests ISIS Kills, They Can’t Win ...I didn’t know Father Hamel, the content of his preaching, what he personally believed or taught his congregation. I imagine the men who murdered him didn’t know these things either. But what both his killers and I know about him is that Father Hamel had a job: to speak Christ’s forgiveness. His job was to tell people they were at peace with their Father in heaven because Christ drowned their transgressions in his blood...
Harris County prosecutors on Tuesday dropped the final indictment against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, whose Center for Medical Progress undercover video series prompted a congressional probe and several state-level investigations of the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The charge — a second-degree felony for tampering with a governmental record — stemmed from the use of a fake ID in order to gain access to a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Houston area.
In a joint statement, Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt called the charges “bogus” and “politically motivated,” accusing the Harris County District Attorney’s Office of working to benefit Planned Parenthood....

Five people including the 86-year-old priest, two nuns and two parishioners were held by assailants who raided the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen in Normandy at 9am.
The clergyman, named as Jacques Hamel, is believed to have been beheaded during the attack while another hostage is fighting for life in hospital...
Europe has lost the Islamic war
...After eight years of Barack Hussein Obama and Europe’s retreat from the war on terror, the West appears to be the weaker horse and the Islamists the stronger one.
A few days ago, I asked Professor Bruce Thornton of California State University what Europe should do to reverse this horrible trend. His answer was revealing: “There is no political will for waging total war against ISIS. It would require 100,000 troops and massive bombing to eliminate as many jihadists as possible. We would have to abandon rules of engagement that privilege the enemy’s people over our own. At home, we would have to increase deportations and publicly demani that Muslim communities in the West disavow Jihadism and Sharia law”.
Of course, Europe and the West are not adopting any of these important and clearly articulated measures...
1,819 illegal immigration cases per judge, backlog at all-time high 500,000 ...But the sheer numbers have forced a huge delay. It currently takes nearly two years — 672 days — for a case to get to court. During that time, the illegals are allowed into the country and several reports show that they rarely make their court date.
The Center for Immigration Studies said in reviewing the new data that the rise of unaccompanied children is a surprise. And they added that many of those youths end up in the hands of smugglers and abusers...
