Father Elfeghali comments from Lebanon


"I live with angels"


When Liz called me yesterday, I talked to Karim's mother. She was very excited and happy.
She said, "I live with angels." She said this with great joy.
It reminded me of the people of Lystra or Malta.
At Lystra, when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they cried out in Lycaonian, "The gods have come down to us in human form." (Acts 14:11). And the priest of Zeus with the people intended to offer sacrifice. St. Paul and Barnabas shouted "Men, why are you doing this? We are of the same nature as you, human beings. We proclaim to you good news..." (Acts 14:15).
We are definitely not angels but human beings who are doing this in the name of Jesus.
Liz and her family are doing this in the name of Jesus.

***Karim asked to be taken to the church to pray to Mary.***

So RCs DO pray to Mary!

This REALLY needs to be a Caucus thread. See post #3.

The story is about a handicapped child. However, for you apparently, the most salient point is a form of words which can be used to score a few more points against "RCs".

I believe a day is coming when you will look back on your particular contribution to this forum with unmitigated embarrassment.

I'm hoping those you've pinged will show a little more class.

First off, the child is Muslim. Secondly, as you know only too well from years of postings to this forum, Mary is an intercessor, as are the saints. Now, since you have taken the time to view this thread, I will ask you to pray for this child who is suffering from a rare illness - Olmstead's Syndrome. There are only 4 known cases in the world!

This Catholic mother of 5 has flown Karim and his family to the US to provide the child and his family with desperately needed medical assistance. Yesterday he met with a dermatologist who beleieves he can help Karim walk again. At the end of his first day, the American mom commented:

Finally, the greatest gift I received today was two kisses on my cheek from Karim. I feel like Jesus Himself planted those kisses on my cheek. Another taste of heaven!! Keep prayers coming. Liz

It took St. Francis many years before he could see Christ in a leper, and kiss him. As you can see, Catholics draw inspiration from the saints. Liz is living the message of Christ. Would that more christians did the same.

I wasn’t attacking the child but the unBiblical practice, or should I say the forbidden act, of praying to anyone outside of the Trinity.

I’ve added the caucus protection. However, if you’d like for it to be an open thread just let me know.

Well, thanks to the Admin Moderator, this is now a Caucus thread, so it is a moot point.

Well, thanks to the Admin Moderator, this is now a Caucus thread

Since it is a "closed thread" please stop pinging me, unless I have been granted some exemption that is....

Also questioning someones "class" seems to border on qualifying as personal attack.

Marshmallow made the comment originally, not I. The comment involved you, so I thought it was proper to ping you.

You know that’s not true. The author will get informed someday.
