Catholic Word of the Day: CONVULSIONARIES, 12-20-10 ^ | 12-20-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 12/20/2010 9:22:24 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


Jansenist enthusiasts who opposed the papal condemnation of 1713 and exhibited supposedly miraculous phenomena in witness of their cause. The phenomena were first observed, together with cures and prophecies, at the tomb of the Jansenist François de Paris in 1731, at St. Médard, Paris. They continued in various parts of France to the end of the eighteenth century.

You have to wonder why they thought having convulsions would aid the cause of Jansenism.

Isn't that what congress became after we took the majority in the election?

As I watch them continue to dismantle our freedom, it sure seems so.
