Headline I Have Somehow Not Seen:

No One With the Slightest Toe-hold in the Last 1,300 Years of History the Least Bit Surprised by the Paris Attacks

I mean, come on. 

Europe 755 A.D.

Europe 1580. From 732 until 1571, the followers of Mohamed conquered all of North Africa, all the Middle East, and huge areas in Europe. Their only significant loss was Spain, from which a conquering army flowed into France in 832, and were finally turned back – not very far from Paris. This is the ONLY significant defeat in the early history of Islam. You don’t suppose France represents unfinished business? Unlike pasty, limp-wristed moderns, other cultures have memories that go back further than yesterday afternoon.

That said:

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May there souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Comfort those who love the dead, O Lord, and convert those who rejoice in those deaths.

Our Lady of the Rosary, Pray for us!

Our Lady of Victory, Pray for us!Lepanto
