Father reminds us that "that all things work for good for those who love God," and that this presupposes Faith in Providence (a.k.a. God's loving plan for everything) and Love of God. As an example, Father turns our attention to the tribulation Iraqi Christians are currently undergoing and gives a short commentary on Islam and how we all can defend against it by living lives strongly founded on Christian Faith. For an example of strong and courageous faith, we can take the example of our Iraqi brethren and, in particular, the example of Patriarch Sako in his exhortation to the Christians in Iraq. Father asks us to examine ourselves, if we aren't ready to practice our faith in peace, how will we be ready when persecution comes to us? The pastoral address quoted by Father may be found here: .

    Jesus is not an Mohammedan prophet. He is God incarnate; the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.

    We ought to convert the Mohammedans. We should be wary of this Moslem subterfuge.

    The Moslems will try any tactic of trickery they can to entice conversions, what they cannot get by the sword. Just wait, once they obtain a large enough minority in a Western Country: they will demand Sharia Law. I hope none in the West ever have to be subject to the slavery of the Moslems' dhimmitude and Dhimmification.

    As Fr Isaac Relyea said: "Islam is from Hell." We need to pray for the Moslems; that they convert to the Holy Catholic Faith. They are leading folks on the same path that Atheism and Communism leads: Perdition.

    We ought not to fall into the Liberal trap of we have to tolerate the Moslems' cultural importation that they bring along with them from their totalitarian culture (all the while ignoring their attempts to impose their Sharia law; a system liberals would have us ignore as a innocent part of "their culture;" and that we in the West must embrace this multi-culturalism).

    At last! The Father speaks the true, in the battle of demographics we as Christians are losing and will be assimilated by Muslims. If you doubt this look at Europe. France will be a Muslim country in 50 years. Pay attention!
