Weekly Note

Fr.

From the outside looking in, it is hard to understand how these groups, who all claim to follow the teachings of Mohamed, could be fighting with each other. How could people of the same faith be killing one another?

Not so long ago Christians were doing the same thing. One hundred years ago this month, Catholics and other Christians began killing one another in the cities and fields of Europe. By the time World War I ended, 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians would die as a result of the war. The Church did not encourage the fighting.

In fact, the Church continues to follow the message of Jesus and opposes the use of violence. As Europe mobilized for war following the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, Pope St. Pius X died, and the Cardinals gathered in Rome to select a new Pope. They chose the Archbishop of Bologna to be the next Pope, and he chose the name Benedict XV. On November 1, 1914 he condemned what was quickly becoming a very deadly fight, “The combatants are the greatest and wealthiest nations of the earth; what wonder, then, if, well provided with the most awful weapons modern military science has devised, they strive to destroy one another with refinements of horror.” How could faithful Catholics be killing other faithful Catholics?   read more...
