January 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) The ballistic missile alert last weekend that had countless people in Hawaii panicked for roughly one half-hour with the thought that death was imminent did something the Catholic Church, on the whole, has struggled to do of late it got people into Mass and Confession.
Reports of soul searching, prayer, and a return to the Sacrament of Penance surfaced after the missile scare.
BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL, was the alert sent throughout the Pacific island state on Saturday morning, January 13. Residents and visitors got the message at 8:07 a.m. local time via TV, radio, and cellphones.
Until a second message 38 minutes later described the first as a "false alarm," residents of Hawaii were under the assumption a missile was en route a rational supposition, given the islands are said to be within range of some of North Koreas Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) and also the current climate between the U.S. and North Korea.
One Catholic family turned immediately to the rosary and the Blessed Mother for protection, and there were reports that as the dust began to settle from the panic, there were full pews for Sunday Mass the following day and long lines for Confession.
The Catholic parish attended by Dallas and Monica Carter and their five children in the Diocese of Honolulu was packed, a Catholic News Agency report said.
And aside from a full church that Sunday morning, the line for Confession was out the door, Dallas Carter said, with their friends from other parishes throughout the island reporting the same.
Its something Carter has nicknamed #MissileConversions.
His family got in line for Confession in gratitude for being able to receive the sacrament again.
Carter said one........

This is why God allows suffering. So we turn to him for help when we are helpless.
Well this is not surprising to me. People often seek faith in the face of their own death.
My question is, “How many of them went back to denigrating Christianity, and hating ALL Christians, as good democrats do, when they found out it was a false alarm?”
Hmmm, so maybe the Church was behind the false warning....LOL!
Probably a fair amount of Missile Sex as well.
Same thing happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Half hour Christians.
Cuban Missile times too? Interesting. I have known of people who became Christian due to fears of impending disaster or in the middle of one. (A friend of mine was teeter tottering between belief and unbelief until the 1994 Earthquake in Northridge, CA)
And no Twilight Zone or Lord of the Rings type stories about people fighting (even killing) each other for survival and over places of safety.
And that is why it’s called a “come to Jesus” moment.
There is no such thing as an Agnostic on a crashing Airplane.
The Hawai’i thing makes perfect sense. Q made it clear it was necessary to perform a bulk data dump from the NSA servers under CIA control in Hawai’i. Per protocol, DEFCON 1 triggers a data dump to the mainland.
Thus, all data are now in the hands of the White Hats. Hence, Trump’s retweet about HRC’s 33,000 emails not being lost after all. As MSM outlets have confirmed, Bill, Hill and Huma were in Hawai’i this past weekend. Coincidence? Could they have been there to destroy evidence that was on the servers? Is that why someone thought it prudent to find the most innocuous way possible to go to DEFCON 1?
The same thing happened with 911.
That theory is based on band-width hogging, which would be lethal in tons of internet-dependent technologies.
Unless HI has prioritized bandwidth AND automated that divvying.
I didn’t know that Democrats believed in God or made confessions.
Amazing how a little thing like a possible nuclear-tipped missile can make “believers” out of “non-believers” in a matter of minutes.
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Well, if someone wrote this in a spy novel you would not believe it, so in todays world it must be true.
So, Kennedy alone was not responsible for the result.
