Torched Catholic Church was named after a saint whose statues have been targeted in CA:


Mission founded by St. Junípero Serra burns in overnight fire: A massive fire devastated an 18th century mission church in San Gabriel, in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, July 11.

Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles called the fire at San Gabriel Mission church, founded by St. Junipero Serra, “devastating.”

quote:

....The San Gabriel mission was the fourth mission founded by St. Junípero Serra, a Franciscan priest who founded a trail of missions across California. Serra helped to convert thousands of native Californians to Christianity, and taught them new agricultural technologies.

Many of Serra’s missions form the cores of what are today the state’s biggest cities— such as San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

An advocate for native people and a champion of human rights, Serra was often at odds with Spanish authorities over the treatment of native people, from whom there was an outpouring of grief at his death in 1784.

Serra was canonized by Pope Francis during a visit to the United States in 2015.

“Junípero sought to defend the dignity of the native community, to protect it from those who had mistreated and abused it,” the pope said in his homily at the Mass of canonization.

Despite Serra’s record defending indigenous peoples, statues of the saint have become focal points for protests and demonstrations across California in recent weeks, with images of the saint being torn down or vandalized in protest of California’s colonial past.

Rioters pulled down a statue of St. Serra in the state capital of Sacramento on July 4, during which one man burned the face of the statue with an ignited spray can, before a crowd pulled the statue from its base and struck it with a sledgehammer and other objects, dancing and jumping upon it.

Another statue of the saint was torn down in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, on June 19 by a crowd of about 100 people. The following week the San Juan Capistrano Mission and its neighboring church removed statues of Serra from their outside displays to preserve them from being targeted.

It certainly seems that the attacks are escalating in both brazenness and severity....

Police seek vandal who desecrated Virgin Mary statue at Queens school...

quote:

According to the Diocese of Brooklyn, at around 3 a.m. on July 10, an unknown individual approached the statue outside of Cathedral Prep School and Seminary, located at 56-25 92nd St. in Elmhurst, and wrote the word “idol” in black paint onto the statue’s front, the diocese said.

School staff discovered the vandalism around 7:30 a.m. By Friday afternoon, the statue had been cleaned, according to the diocese.

Cathedral Preparatory School educates young men considering joining the priesthood. Father James Kuroly, the school’s rector and president, called the incident “an act of hatred.”

“We were victims of vandalism against a beloved statue that is dear to generations of Cathedral students. This image of our most Blessed Mother is approximately 100 years old and each day, both students and passersby pray fervently for her intercession in front of the statue,” said Father James Kuroly, the rector and president of Cathedral Prep. “Obviously, this tragedy saddens us deeply but it also renews our hope and faith in the Lord as he has shown his goodness in the many people who have already reached out to us. We are sincerely grateful for the help we have received as well as the prayers.”


Virgin Mary Statue Set on Fire Outside Boston Church: St. Peter Parish put up the statue decades ago in memory of servicemen killed in World War II, Pastor John Currie said.

quote:

Fire investigators say it appears someone set fire to plastic flowers that were in the hands of the statue, which caused the face and upper body of the statue to be burned. The charred statue startled parishioners on Sunday, with one man saying he was "very disturbed" by the incident.

"This is ridiculous," a woman added. "This needs to stop." Pastor John Currie says it was a lot for him to take in, as well. "I was shocked," he said. "Shocked."

The church put up the statue decades ago in memory of servicemen killed in World War II, Pastor Currie said. Pastor Currie says he's not angry at whoever did this, but he would like to help him or her. "This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul," he said. "But I know our Lady in Heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might've been, and saying, 'I love you! If you need help, come get help. We're here for you.'"

The burnt flowers have been replaced, but Pastor Currie says he's still trying to figure out whether it's possible to clean the statue.




Florida man lights Catholic Church on fire with parishioners inside: The fire came at almost the same time that a mission church founded by St. Junipero Serra caught fire and was structurally destroyed outside of Los Angeles....

quote:





A man crashed a minivan through the front door of the church, and then lit a fire with people inside, the sheriff’s department said. One local media outlet, Orlando News 6, reported that the man set the building ablaze by throwing an incendiary device.

The sheriff’s office said the man led officers on a vehicle chase and was eventually apprehended. The arsonist’s name has not been released, and charges have not yet been filed, but local media report that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is assisting in the investigation.

We praise God that no one was injured. We join in prayer for Father O’Doherty, the parishioners of Queen of Peace Catholic Church, our first responders and the gentleman who caused this damage. May we come to know the Peace of the Lord,” the Orlando diocese told CNA Saturday afternoon.

“Masses will resume as normal in the parish hall beginning this evening,” the diocese added.

The church is one of few in central Florida to offer the extraordinary form of the Mass, otherwise known as the Traditional Latin Mass, which is celebrated weekly by a priest of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter who drives to Ocala from a church in Sarasota....

Christians should evoke the spirit of Judas “the Hammer” Maccabee in defending the Faith. The Maccabees fought back against of the desecration of their Temple and the forced conversion to Greek paganism by the Hellenistic King Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

The only Old Testament figures venerated in the Roman Catholic Church are the Holy Maccabees. Dante considered Judas Maccabee a hero of the true faith and Handel wrote an oratorio in memory of the Maccabees’ triumph over the Seleucid Empire:

See! The conqu’ring hero comes!

In an unintentional, roundabout way these incidents are a good thing. I can't think of anything that could be done that will push more Hispanic-Americans into voting for Trump than this. Hell if they keep doing this California may not want illegals to vote.

Pope Leo XIII spoke forcefully on Columbus’ importance in the spreading of the Faith:

“Columbus noster est!”

quote:

Christopher Columbus is ours!

“....Columbus certainly had joined to the study of nature, the study of religion, and had trained his mind on the teachings that well up from the most intimate depths of the Catholic faith. For this reason, when he learned from the lessons of astronomy and the record of the ancients, that there were great tracts of land lying towards the West, beyond the limits of the known world, lands hitherto explored by no man, he saw in spirit a mighty multitude, cloaked in miserable darkness, given over to evil rites, and the superstitious worship of vain gods.

Miserable it is to live in a barbarous state and with savage manners: but more miserable to lack the knowledge of that which is highest, and to dwell in ignorance of the one true God. Considering these things, therefore, in his mind, he sought first of all to extend the Christian name and the benefits of Christian charity to the West, as is abundantly proved by the history of the whole undertaking....”

I think there are many faithful Catholics who aren’t too happy with the current direction of the Catholic Church:

Archbishop Viganò: Vatican II Marked The Beginning of a False, Parallel Church...

quote:

....The hopes of the Tower of Babel cannot be brought back to life by a globalist plan that has as its goal the cancellation of the Catholic Church, in order to replace it with a confederation of idolaters and heretics united by environmentalism and universal brotherhood. There can be no brotherhood except in Christ, and only in Christ: qui non est mecum, contra me est.

It is disconcerting that few people are aware of this race towards the abyss, and that few realize the responsibility of the highest levels of the Church in supporting these anti-Christian ideologies, as if the Church’s leaders want to guarantee that they have a place and a role on the bandwagon of aligned thought. And it is surprising that people persist in not wanting to investigate the root causes of the present crisis, limiting themselves to deploring the present excesses as if they were not the logical and inevitable consequence of a plan orchestrated decades ago....

SSPX and Sedevacantism are available to devout, traditional Catholics who do not wish to join one of the Orthodox, Oriental, Assyrian, Syrian, or Coptic Churches.

It certainly is becoming harder and harder for traditional Catholics to not consider the argument that the Chair of Saint Peter is vacant since the elevation of Pope Pachamama to the Holy See...

Why Catholics honoring Pachamama is a result of apostasy....

Sounds eerily similar to Spain in the 1930's. Cathedrals/Churches were torched throughout Spain by the "Republicans"{Communist) along with the murdering clergy and nuns.

Some things never change...
