Please would you take a moment to remember and pray for those who have been caught up in the horrific coordinated terror attacks in #Paris last night.
With over 150 dead and scores more injured, this is the deadliest violence in Paris since World War II.
Now while I have my own opinions as to what is going on not only in France, but Europe on the whole, and why, let me just say that things are going to get worse before they get better. Secularism will be their complete undoing. So while the French borders have now been closed, ISIS is long inside the gates. And Western Civilisation is left teetering.
St Joan of Arc, pray for us!
Charles Martel, aid us!

Sodom’s sin from a Jewish perspective is discussed in the Jerusalem Post:
… It was not only Sodom’s evil that God could not tolerate.
It was also the silence in the face of that evil. And that silence ultimately excluded all of Sodom from the world to come.
Actually, it looks like a Bishop…
In the above photo, an Orthodox priest blesses Russian missiles intended for airstrikes against Syrian rebels. According to Reuters reporter Noah Browning, the priest is sprinkling holy water on the missile before it is put aboard a Russian plane.
The blessing of missiles comes after Patriarch Kirill, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, declared that Russia’s intervention in Syria, which is aimed at the rebels currently aligned against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is a “holy battle.”
War. And the need to formulate a proper Christian response. One that is consistent. Sanctifying war? Surely, it cannot be so…
The circumstances surrounding a shooting at a Cape Town station on Tuesday remain unclear, but what has been confirmed is that a man died during the incident from a self-inflicted gunshot.
Western Cape police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said: “The circumstances surrounding the death of an unknown man are being investigated after he allegedly shot himself at platform 24, Cape Town railway station at around 12:00 this afternoon.”
“A death inquest case docket has been registered,” said Traut.
According to media reports of witness accounts, two men had entered the station with their faces fully covered but their eyes visible. They were dressed in black garments that appeared to be similar to those worn by Muslim women, witnesses reported.
It’s believed several shots were fired by one man before he turned the gun on himself, although the clarity of these details remain sketchy.
“We have reason to believe that the man who shot and killed himself could have been part of a group of two men who acted suspiciously prior to the incident,” Traut said.
“However we will not be speculating about the matter until our investigation has reached a more advanced stage.”
Metrorail said train services were not affected by incident.
