Back To The Catacombs?

Back to where we started?  Christians arrested during Mass in the Catacombs

Remember how the secularists tell us believers that they just want religion out of the public space, but we are quiet free to practice our beliefs privately and behind the closed doors of our homes?  Well, we don't swallow that one nor agree with it, but if were to take the secularists at their own word, we see that they really don't mean what they say: and here is a good example which proves that point: a Californian family have been fined for hosting a Bible study group in the privacy of their own home.  

So now, dear people, did you ever think you needed a permit for a private prayer group at home?  Do we now need a licence for the family rosary?  Perhaps even planning permission for the May altar?  And, God forbid, perhaps even an act of parliament to permit a house Mass!  Ah, the freedom our friends the secularists offer us!  Where would be be without it?  Free, that's where!

On that note: anyone interested in starting St Genesius prayer groups in the home?  Get a few friends together for the rosary, some prayers and friendship?  If so give us a shout:

  1. What happened to the Fromm family is horrific but far from rare. The right to freedom of religion and of conscience, as well as the right (and duty) to rear and educate one's children in accordance with same has been coming under coordinated and sustained attack for many years now, mainly by means of ideologically-riven UN and Council of Europe instruments, which Ireland became a party to, without any knowledge of the People. This is what is behind the push for the so-called "children's rights" amendment to the Constitution, which would give more power to State agencies as against mother and father to make decisions in respect of their children's upbringing and care. All the human rights of children, as humans, are recognised under the Constitution as it stands, while the recognition of the natural duties and rights of parents and family means that children's rights are protected in their exercise. Recognition is also given to the need for intervention where parents abandon their duty to their children. Lynda
