Pro-abortion protestors disrupt Mass in Spain

Catholic World News - February 11, 2014

Chanting pro-abortion slogans, a group of 30 protestors disrupted Mass in Palma, a city of 400,000 located on the Spanish island of Majorca, according to a February 9 Religión Digital report.

When they realized what was happening, several of the faithful left their pews to face the protestors, who soon ended their protest, according to a video posted on the religious news site.

    Bravo for those "Several of the faithful..." In our Country and in our lifetime we very well may also be called to defend our pastors and our churches from protests and/or actual attacks. Will American Catholics rise to the occasion and defend the Faith with our lives? Or will we simply file a lawsuit?

    Funny isn't it that when confronted with opposition, the protesters dispersed. I pray that our Church has more faithful - myself included - as this fine example.
