  1. We know that Christians were strong enough in Alexandria in 415 AD, to tear Hypatia apart in public, limb from limb, with impunity.

  2. "'It probably resulted from a change of religion, and the only change of religion was the arrival of Christianity.'"

    That was one helluva leap! "Head orientation" probably doesn't mean anything of the sort. It might simply have to do with whoever was Pharoah at the time.

    "... numerous artifacts that Griggs suspects are the oldest-known pieces of Christian iconography in the form of crosses, fish and figurines."

    Suspects? Only suspects? And yet someone is willing to swallow that Christianity invented the fish and cross symbols? Boy, do I have a piece of beachfront property...

    "... terra cotta figurines depicting a maternal, possibly Mary-like figure..."

    In Egypt, that would be Isis. And if she's holding a baby, that would be Horus. And, while the mythological histories of Mary are similar to Isis, and the mythologies about both Jesus and Moses are similar to Horus, they are not, in fact, the same. Not exactly.

    As for what that mob did to Hypatia...well done! Setting the tone for the religious tolerance of the Crusades in centuries to come!

    Anyone else want to sneer at Islam's being called "the religion of Peace (which it is not, btw)?"

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
