Catholics Killed at Mass in Iraq: Extremist Muslims invade Church, Murder Priests Comments

One report concerning the state of the Church after the security forces stormed in to attempt to rescue the Christians is particularly horrifying. It came from a police officer, "It's a horrible scene. More than 50 people were killed. The suicide vests were filled with ball bearings to kill as many people as possible. You can see human flesh everywhere. Flesh was stuck to the top roof of the hall. Many people went to the hospitals without legs ... Continue Reading

    We can't change these people with war and violence from our governments,that's what the devil wants. We have to go back to the days when St.Peter,St.Paul and all the early Apostles who spoke with great boldness.Deacons like Stephen who preached just like the early Apostles with zeal for the Gospel. This changed Rome, imagine that it was without emails,text messages,dvd's,cd's,ect...... I highly recommend Fr.Euteneuer book with a forward by Fr.Corapi. Its called Exorisms and the Church Militant.We must remember we are a Militant Church too.We must go to war with evils but not the way the world does.God bless Our Catholic Church members to use their gifts.Please folks lets use our Power wth humility.

    What have we accomplished in Iraq? Nothing!!!! The young soldiers, the iraqi people, they all died for no purpose. The situation is worse than before.

    International outcry? For a bunch of Catholics? I'm not holding my breath. I will settle for an "outcry" from our president.

    They are really anti-christ...nobody blinks an eyelid in the western world when christians expecialy catholics are slaughtered for their faith in Christ Jesus, i wonder what will be in the mind of the so called western muslims now who cryin that they are being marginalised. howeever they cannot exterminate the faith of our fathers.... Catholicism has stood the test of time and no force on earth, in the heavens or under the earth can destroy it.

    My heart goes in prayer for the slaughtered Iraqi martyres. May our Lady welcome them into eternity as they recite joyfully the litany of the saints

    Sanguine Martyrum semen Christianorum est....the blood of the matryrs is the seed of Christianity.

    may their soul rest in the bosom of the Lord....as we celebrate the feast of all saints.

    I pray for all my Christian brothers and sisters not only in Iraq but all over the world. These wicked people will have to answer to our Lord Jesus Christ one day for these actions. We Christians need to be on our knees more and praying for the Lord to intervene.
