According to a report from Catholic World News, it's a crime to carry a rosary in Saudi Arabia.
The report also tells about the case of a Saudi girl who converted to Catholicism and was reported to the police by her own brother.
Her tongue was cut out and shortly thereafter, they found her dead.
On the other hand, in our country, Catholics in America also endure persecution of a different sort.
For example, it is deeply painful to report that Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness of the Americas, is impurely blasphemed right here in the USA.
The Oakland Museum of California is hosting an art exhibit that includes a digital portrait of Our Lady of Guadalupe wearing a bikini, held aloft by a topless woman-angel!
And it will be on public display until May 29!
If we were living in Saudi Arabia, we would value our faith a while lot more.
But now is the time to show Jesus that we care, and that we love His Mother, the Patroness of the Americas, and that we will defend Her holy honor no matter how many times She is attacked and insulted.
And our prayerful protest and reparation is the only way of showing our gratitude and our only hope of redeeming ourselves.
That is why I am urging you to speak out, and to:
On behalf of the Virgin of Guadalupe's honor, please join me in this peaceful and prayerful protest.
