  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Marginalisation of Christians in England.

 

Image from Mike Duran

1catholicsalmon received a comment recently from an atheist who was derisive of the fact that Christians are being marginalised in England, so I thought I ‘d post some obvious examples of this fact as a taster for those who believe this to be untrue. Below are what I believe to be excellent examples of bias and discrimination against Christians in Britain. The links are worth following.

1.Christians face discrimination in workplace, say church leaders.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/4622858/Christians-face-discrimination-in-workplace-say-church-leaders.html

2. A leading Catholic barrister has said that a student union motion at University College London which forces Catholic organisations to invite pro-abortion speakers to pro-life events is “completely illegal”

3.Christians a minority at ‘biased’ BBC where staff are more likely to be atheists or non-believers.

As I finish off my post for today, the presenter James O’ Brian from the radio station LBC (London’s Biggest Conversation http://www.lbc.co.uk/),  prepares to discuss his and other Christians’ reticence to admit that they adhere to Christian religious parameters . Will prove to be interesting listening. The fact that one of the biggest radio stations in London is airing this programme is indicative of the fact that the secularist agenda to rid English society of  Christian freedoms is alive and well.
