Pope Francis DOOM For Egypt! Pope Prays 'May the Lord Protect Egypt From Terrorism! Two Weeks Later - 54 Egyptian Police Killed In Ambush
Pope: 'May the Lord protect Egypt, the Middle East and the world from terrorism'
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday had a special greeting for an Egyptian delegation led by the country’s Tourism Minister, in Rome to promote a pilgrimage in the footsteps of the Holy Family’s flight to Egypt. Speaking during the Wednesday General Audience in St. Peter’s Square, the Pope recalled his Apostolic Journey to Egypt last April saying that he has fond memories of the visit. He said Egypt is “a land where Saint Joseph, the Virgin Mary and the Baby Jesus, as well as many prophets lived: a land that has been blessed with the precious blood of martyrs spilt throughout the centuries”. And describing Egypt as a land of cohabitation and hospitality; a land of encounter, of history and of civilization, the Pope imparted his blessing on Egyptians and prayed the Lord to protect the nation, the Middle East and the whole world from all kinds of terrorism and from evil. The Pope also blessed an icon that represents the Flight of the Holy Family to Egypt. The Egyptian delegation, led by the Minister of Tourism Yahya Rashed, is meeting with tourism officials in Rome in an effort to promote the Holy Family in Egypt route as an important pilgrimage destination. In a statement before the visit Rashed said it falls within the framework of Pope Francis's fruitful visit to Egypt. It also comes within the framework of the importance attached by the Tourism Ministry to religious tourism. The pilgrimage route takes pilgrims to eight different places that are meaningful to the Holy Family during its flight from Herod’s persecution or during its return to the Holy Land. It starts in the city of Al-Arish (North Sinai), crosses to the Eastern Delta of the Nile, and reaches Wadi Natroun, home to four important Coptic monasteries. By reviving the pilgrimage, the government hopes to breathe new life into the tourism sector badly damaged by the 2011 revolution. It also represents government support for Egypt's Christian minority. Source
54 Egyptian police killed in ambush, say officials
At least 54 policemen, including 20 officers and 34 conscripts, were killed when a raid on a militant hideout southwest of Cairo was ambushed, officials said Saturday. The ensuing firefight was one of the deadliest for Egyptian security forces in recent years. Two police officials told The Associated Press that the exchange of fire began late Friday in the al-Wahat al-Bahriya area in Giza province, about 135 kilometers (84 miles) southwest of Cairo. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media. The firefight began when security forces acting on intelligence moved against a militants' hideout in the area. Backed by armored personnel carriers and led by senior counterterrorism officers, the police contingent drew fire and rocket-propelled grenades, according to the officials. Source
“In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
