The Vatican


The Vatican stuff goes here - - - - ?


Here we go…


Let us pray that the Lord will free the victims of human trafficking and help us to respond actively to the cry for help of so many of our brothers and sisters who are deprived of their dignity and freedom. #EndHumanTrafficking

The response (onslaught) makes no bones about their memes.



No Dignity, No Freedom

They’re clearly running low on candidates for sainthood in this day and age

Schuman, who served as French prime minister and foreign minister in the immediate post-World War II period, also played a role in the founding of NATO.

In 1950 the “Schuman Plan” proposed a supranational community for coal and steel. It evolved to become the European Economic Community in 1957 and the European Union in 1993.

Along with Italy’s Alcide de Gasperi, France’s Jean Monnet and Germany’s Konrad Adenauer, he is considered one of the “Fathers of Europe” for promoting democratic, supranational principles to thwart the possibility of another war on the continent.

A devout Catholic, Schuman’s role in trying to break the cycle of wars in Europe has been praised by several popes.

Francis’ approval of the decree means Schuman now has the title “venerable.”
