We are from Nazareth

The persecutions have been happening for a long, long time. Now- it is getting worse. How can we Westerners even begin to understand- a 1,800 year old church being burnt to the ground? 
We are in Romania now- land of persecution under communism that still happens today. Perhaps I will write more when I feel I have something  constructive to say. For now, for all Christians, remember that the Muslims are becoming the majority in Europe. If we bother to attend church at all, we grumble when a priest preaches for longer than ten minutes. We married folks decide to have our first and only child after ten years or so of marriage. We cannot be bothered to turn off the video clips, smart phones and television news in order to help our family and friends with a crisis or harvest or building project. 
We are out for ourselves. Is it any wonder that the devout, prayerful, family-centered Muslims will overtake the Christians any day now? They really do not need to actively exterminate the Christians, but I suppose it speeds the process a bit. 

Holy Prophet Elijah

 An angel in the flesh and the cornerstone of the prophets, the second forerunner of the coming of Christ, Glorious Elijah sent grace from on high to Elisha, to dispel diseases and to cleanse lepers. Therefore, he pours forth healing on those who honor him.

off to Austria and Romania!

 I leave for Europe with the children tomorrow until the middle of August...who knows what I will be able to blog? I hope that I will be able to share our travels- focusing on the trials, tribulations and triumphs of the Eastern Catholics there...
