Largest ever fleet of warships mustered in Persian Gulf Comments

The drumbeat of war is sounding louder as Israel inches closer to the precipice. Meanwhile a massive armada of American and British warships is concentrating in the gulf, containing multiples more firepower that Iran could ever muster. Experts think this is a prelude to conflict with Israel poised to strike before November. Continue Reading

    One thing that has not gotten a lot of press is that Canada has kicked out all Iranian diplomats, and brought home all Canadian diplomats just last week...The Writing is on The Wall.

    Wulfrano, we don't need Iran's oil--we have plenty in the USA! For the rest: and "there will be war and rumours of war" (Mt 24:6ff)--like never before! Oh, God, what have we done--with all these arsenals we have created, that when leashed leave behind nothing but devastation and self-destruction--have mercy on us and deliver us from this evil! Yes, and we must listen to Our Lady of Fatima!

    Prophecy says war will begin in the Euphrates River region and 1/3 of mankind will be destroyed. Rev. 9:13-15 It IS coming folks, keep praying. God bless.

    @Johnny: Very observant!

    @Steve: Catholics live in the world, but are not of the world. Therefore, Catholics must be knowledgeable about their surroundings and the world they live in, seeing how they can better live their Faith, while also, continuously learning and practicing that Faith which leads them to Jesus and Eternity. By reading the news articles and the posts, you will learn more about yourself and your Faith. It is not a rush seminar. Also, you will hear of books to read, as carolyn mentioned, plus Daily Readings, Homily's, Saints, Mary etc. This is only one part of CO. (News.)

    Enjoy COs many introductions and opportunities to grow. I have read all of the older printed material on Fatima. But I did not know that a new book was out. Fatima is very interesting. Especially connecting worldly thoughts and ideas to the spiritual. Relax. Enjoy the Journey!

    Steve, It has to do with what the Blessed Mother says about peace in the world and what she asked us to do to avoid war. The message is for all people, not just Catholics, that peace would require prayer, penance and amendment of life. Read about Our Lady of Fatima and what she says about praying the Rosary to obtain peace. The peace of the world is in the hands and heart of Mary, because that is where Jesus places it. We need her help and intercession. I am reading a book titled Fatima for Today, by Fr Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R. This is the first time I am reading anything on Fatima. I wish I would have sooner. It shown me how Mary has had an influence in the world and what we need to do to acquire peace. Pray!

    In Biblical terms, man-o-wars which are to power & might, portrayed by the mother/daughter combine are never to any permanent solution, for no power & might can go against the Spirit as stated "It is not by might neither by power but by my Spirit says the Lord of Hosts. The height of foolishness is to be oversensitive to a people & undersensitive to their God, for the very meaning & purpose of a chosen people is to Glorify the God, that which is not seen today in their secular credentials, to this Israel.

    Thank you for the information. Now, I would love to have a twist - something I would expect to find in a Catholic place - What we can do, and how these things can make me fall even more in Love for Christ, His Church, and all the people including Iranians and Jewish.

    I think analyzing Netanyahu's body language is a little absurd. He is obviously very frustrated with Obama. But a war on Iran would serve no purpose- it would not be a Christian Crusade, it would be another Iraq. We do no evangelizing, but rather just have a hollow occupation resulting in far too many deaths.

    I think Iran should surrender now and deliver its oil wells to the USA. Otherwise it's WWIII!

    When you have Israel , armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons , this state of affairs is not healthy to say the least. The only way Israel can now neutralize Iran is through a limited nuclear attack on certain installations as conventional attacks will be useless as facilities reburied deep in mountain bunkers . They will need to take out mountains.
