Catholic Church Is Biblical Israel — Political Vel Craft

The Catholic Church has traditionally understood itself to be the new Israel (Catechism of the Catholic Church 877). Just as Israel was God’s people in the Old Testament, the Church is his people now, and to many in our culture, this sounds extremely arrogant and possibly even anti-Semitic. It seems like we’re saying that God […]

“Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel” — TLP

Matthew 9:27-34 In this passage, Jesus encounters a blind man and a man who was demon possessed.

Lebanon: this Week won’t be the same as last week for Protestors — Elijah J. Magnier

By Elijah J. Magnier: @ejmalrai After less than two weeks of generalized, impulsive and unorganised protests on the streets of Lebanon, a huge amount of money has been invested – by undeclared donors – in recent days to provide protestors with food, drinks and necessities so that they will stay in the street until “the […]

Lebanon Burned. And Now It May Rise — A Separate State of Mind | A Blog by Elie Fares

My heart broke two days ago when I saw my home country burn, quite literally, in front of our eyes.
