    One girl from Spain is proving that anyone can make their dreams come true, even people like her who were born with Down syndrome. Marian Avila has made a successful career as a model, despite how difficult it can be for people with Down syndrome to find a job. She is leveraging the media attention she’s received to bring awareness to the chromosomal disorder and encourage people to pursue their dreams no matter what. As a child, Marian always dreamed of becoming a model. Not only was she born with Down syndrome, she is only 5-foot-3. Her height alone would...

    ROSARIO, Argentina — The mayor of a small town in southern Spain forcibly removed a cross from the doors of a convent. The crucifix was then found in a garbage dump. The events took place last week in the town of Aguilar de la Frontera, in the Diocese of Cordoba, in the Andalusia region in southern Spain. The cross was located at the entrance of the church that belongs to the adjoining convent of the Discalced Carmelites, and had been there since 1939. It was erected to honor the Nationalist victims of Spain’s civil war, although the plaque noting this...
  • Bishops Advise Spaniards to Carry Letter Protecting Them from Euthanasia

    Aleteia ^ | 1/22/21 | John Burger
    If passed, law would make Spain sixth country to allow "mercy killing."Don’t leave home without it. That’s the message, basically, from the Catholic Bishops of Spain, who are renewing their longstanding invitation for concerned citizens to draft a living will to protect against being involuntarily killed under a government-backed euthanasia law. In December, Spanish lawmakers voted in favor of a law decriminalizing euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. If the Senate gives it final approval, Spain would be Europe’s sixth country to allow active euthanasia. “This proposed law says euthanasia cannot be applied if the person has previously signed a document with...

    Post by Franciscan Media Saint Berard and Companions Saint of the Day for January 16 (d. January 16, 1220) Audio Player Saint Berard and Companions’ Story Preaching the gospel is often dangerous work. Leaving one’s homeland and adjusting to new cultures, governments and languages is difficult enough; but martyrdom caps all the other sacrifices. In 1219, with the blessing of Saint Francis, Berard left Italy with Peter, Adjute, Accurs, Odo and Vitalis to preach in Morocco. En route in Spain, Vitalis became sick and commanded the other friars to continue their mission without him. They tried preaching in Seville, then...

    A severe winter storm, the worst to hit Spain in decades, has overwhelmed its capital, Madrid, where around a foot of snow has fallen since Friday. The blockbuster storm has wreaked havoc across a region not used to seeing any snow, let alone up to a foot or more. A significant amount of snow had not fallen in Madrid in a decade. As the snow started to pile up Friday night, transportation became impossible, with airports shut down, train services canceled and over 1,000 motorists trapped in their cars on major roadways around Madrid, according to the Associated Press.

    Alec Baldwin impersonated the accent of his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and claimed, "My wife is from Spain," during an appearance on David Letterman's late-night talk show in 2013, according to an old clip that has surfaced online. Hilaria Baldwin's heritage has faced new scrutiny after she recently confirmed she was born in Massachusetts -- and not Spain, as she had previously claimed. In a 2013 interview with Letterman on CBS's "The Late Show," Baldwin told the host his wife was from Spain, then used a fake accent while impersonating her on the phone with a hairdresser or friend. "My wife...

    Spain will keep a registry of individuals who refuse to be vaccinated for COVID-19, the country’s health minister announced Monday. Salvador Illa said during an interview on Spain’s La Sexta TV that the registry will not be made public and vaccinations will be voluntary. “What will be done is a register, which will be shared with our European partners … of those people who have been offered it and have simply rejected it,” Mr. Illa said, the BBC reported. Mr. Illa stressed that people who decide not to get vaccinated are making a “mistake” but are still within their rights....

    Spain’s Congress of Deputies, the lower house of Spain’s legislative body, has voted in favour of legalising euthanasia by a vote of 198-138. On Thursday 17th December, the Spanish Parliament took the country one step closer to making euthanasia and assisted suicide legal. The legislation will now pass on to the Senate, where it is expected to pass. The bill was opposed by the Popular and Vox parties. The proposed legislation will allow both euthanasia and assisted suicide, whereas previous failed attempts to introduce legislation to the United Kingdom have only proposed to allow assisted suicide. The criteria under which...

During the Red Terror of the 1930s, Communists killed more than 6,800 bishops, priests, monks, and religious. Yet outside Spain, their story is largely forgotten.

  • Gibraltar to join Schengen, meaning border checks for Brits – but not Spain

    The London Economic ^ | 12/22/20 | Henry Goodwin
    Gibraltar is poised to strike a deal to enter the Schengen free movement area – meaning Brits will be required to show their passports on arrival, but people coming from Spain will not. Up to 15,000 Spaniards cross the country’s land border to work on the Rock – which has a population of less than 34,000 – each day. Brexit means that, from 1 January, Madrid would have been able to create a hard border between Spain and Gibraltar – which would have drastic effects for the territory’s economy.

    Christian Post ^ | 11/30/2020 | Anugrah Kumar
    A hashtag calling for Catholic priests to be burned alive, which several pro-Marxist accounts started, has not been removed by Twitter despite numerous complaints. Twitter, which has censored posts containing Christian praise and worship videos for purportedly violating its rules, has not taken any action to remove the hashtag in Spanish that says, #FuegoAlClero, which means set fire to the clergy, despite its policy that says users cannot “threaten violence against an individual or a group of people.” The hashtag was started by pro-Marxist groups in support of a bill to reform Spain’s education system by giving control of religious...
  • New reports about election manipulation read like a Tom Clancy novel

    American Thinker ^ | Andrea Widburg
    On Friday, a retired top Air Force intelligence analyst stated with certainty during an interview that special forces had secured a CIA-run facility in Germany that had computers showing election manipulation. If this report is real, we are witnessing the biggest coup attempt, sabotage, and treason in American history. No matter what, though, because this report is out there and comes from serious people, it deserves serious investigation. I have no idea whether this raid happened. Its having taken place, however, is consistent with my ruminations about Trump’s peculiarly-timed shake-up at the Pentagon: Firing defense secretary Mark Esper and replace...

    Socialists expand global Culture of DeathMADRID (ChurchMilitant.com) - Spain passed its first law that not only allows euthanasia but also recognizes death as a right. Spain thus becomes the fifth in Europe to legalize the practice. Euthanasia (namely, sanctioned homicide) or assisted suicide has extended even to children as young as 12 in the Netherlands, for example. So far in Spain, it is for the intended adult victim alone to request the combination of substances to induce death. Sponsored by Spain's Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), its proponents promise that it will allow a "dignified death." To be applied, however, the...
