I should note that many of the protesters are not Muslims grinding religious axes, but secular nationalists angry at then-Cardinal Ratzinger's negative assessment of Turkey as EU candidate, as well as opposed to any greater recognition of the Patriarchate (on secularist as well as chauvinistic grounds).

Bishop Lori is the Bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport, CT, and a wonderful, faithful shepherd. What a great prayer.

They've been running this prayer on EWTN all morning. I pray with it everytime it comes on.

I've just posted this ALL OVER Facebook. Hundreds if not thousand of people should come across it there. I'll also have us pray it at our next K of C meeting. Thanks Jimmy and reader!

AL-QAIDA DENOUNCES POPE VISIT TO TURKEY

"The pope's visit, in fact, is to consolidate the crusader campaign against the lands of Islam after the failure of the crusader leaders ... and an attempt to extinguish the burning ember of Islam inside our Turkish brothers," it said.

PLEASE ALL PRAY FOR THE POPE'S SAFETY IN THIS VISIT!

Turkey holds a significant place in the mind-set of al-Qaida and militant Islamic groups that sympathize with it. Under the Ottomans, Turkey was the seat of the Islamic caliphate, the religious rule extending over much of the Islamic world until its collapse in the early 20th century.

Al-Qaida has said its goal is to restore the caliphate, to unify Muslims in the fight against the West.

The group said the pope was visiting in order to ensure that Turkey — "once a stronghold of Islam" — remains secular and "is driven into the arms of the European Union to stop the spread of Islam." (EXCERPTS)
