Shrine of St Willibrord

Reactions 
The magnificent site of the Basilica of St Willibrord. This only emphasises the idiocy of the dynamiting of the Church under St Willibrord's patronage in Amsterdam.

Ironically, he was a great Church builder and a man of unflinching faith. O, that the same could be said of Catholic bishops today.

Church of St Willibrord, Amsterdam

Reactions 
This magnificent Church of St Willibrord with its famous seven towers was dynamited by the Diocese in 1971. If a Diocese are capable of this, they are capable of anything. The reason given- it was the bishop's policy of ecumenism to remove symbols of Catholic "triumphalism". Doing the work of those that would persecute the Church for them.

What need have Catholics for this man's teaching- we have Christ, Our Lord who alone can redeem us.

HELP US SAVE ST. JOSEPH'S ORATORY FROM PAGAN INFLUENCE!!

A scandal is scheduled to take place at the famous shrine, St. Joseph's Oratory in Montreal, Canada on August 14, 2004.

A man named Sri Sri Ravi Shankar - who is the "founder of the Art of Living Foundation, a United Nations - non-governmental organization" is scheduled to speak, teach and/or do meditation in the Basilica (we found this out by calling the number on a flyer).!

We were unable to find this information on the web site of St. Joseph's Oratory. The word was spread by means of flyers and on the web site of Mr. Shankar's 'foundation'.

Flyers were distributed in the Montreal area that refer to this man as "his holiness"!. On the flyer it also says Mr. Shankar is "...the founder of The Art of Living Course, which 'may be the fastest-growing spiritual practice on the planet' (Yoga Journal)". Need we say more?

Worse - people are actually paying money to hear him speak at this place of Catholic Worship.

Please help us to prevent this person from promoting pagan ideas in this Catholic Basilica.

We need your help to get the word out to protest this and keep it from happening.

Reactions 
The modern Church preaches justice for the whole world and can't even practice it at home in the Diocese of Boston. Justice is set to one side as the Diocese devastates the Houses of God.

....but beware Voice of the Faithful trying to exploit the situation for their own ends.
