 Christian men, women, and children are being persecuted, tortured, raped, and murdered in and around God's Holy Land because of their faith in Jesus.
State Civil Authorities, including the Holy See, have recognized these crimes as Genocide, and our Church addresses these victims as martyrs.
 
 
Join with us in taking action on behalf of our suffering brothers and sisters. You CAN make a difference!
Pray with us for a conversion of these criminal's hearts, an end to the genocide and violence, and in urging our civic leaders not to turn a blind eye, but to do their duty to provide a courageous legitimate defense for these innocent victims! 
 

Golgotha Crucifix

Cross atop the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre

     For two thousand years Christians have venerated the site of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It is the physical location that proclaims the focus and summit of the Christian faith.

On this site Jesus Christ, a native Jew of the House of King David, proved through his passion and death, his miraculous resurrection, and his post-resurrection appearances that he is the great I AM, the one true God.

Why did he do this? It was for the benefit of everyone. Jesus is the Lamb of God who is the eternal sacrifice offered so that we may be reconciled to God and forgiven of our sins. This is the Gospel. This is indeed Good News!

No sin is out of reach of God's mercy through the body and blood of His Son, Our Lord Jesus.

No one can force you to accept His freely given forgiveness and love. Make your choice to begin following Him today and receive His peace.

The Risen Christ

The Risen Christ

Our ancient motto, "Deus Lo Vult!" (Latin for "God Wills It!) is generally regarded by most historians as originating as a cry for a "Just War" from the people present at the Council of Clermont in 1095, the "Just War" result was the First Crusade.

While this was indeed a historical event, the actual reference and context of the phrase comes directly from the New Testament book of 1 Timothy 2:1-6. Here the Word of God unambiguously states that God Wills everyone to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the Truth. It references prayer and evangelization as the preferred and pleasing actions which His followers should engage themselves with in order to achieve it.

As Christians and knighted defenders of the Catholic faith, we are charged with courageously spreading God's Truth in love; the Truth that there is only one God, and only one mediator between God and Man, Christ Jesus the Messiah.
