Now, both the low church Protestants and the atheists, including some of the anarchists below, would be shocked to know that they have in common the idea that we are idolaters par excellence. The academic craze for atheism in the West sees us real Catholics are worshiping fools, believing in superstitious nonsense and irrational. In my own family, I am seen as one of those ladies in a mantilla, saying my rosary in the back of Church, with no brain. That strange grouping accounts for the half-billion who think we are deranged and medieval.

The other billion are the Muslims who call Christians polytheists because of our belief in the Trinity.
God the Father, the loving Abba, who Christ revealed to us, the First Person in the Blessed Trinity is no Allah.
The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, is not God to the Muslims.
The Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Spirit, given to us through the sacraments of baptism and confirmation, is not on the Islamic radar.

We do not obey and as I did, pass up opportunities of grace. All you Catholic polytheists and idolaters get off your sofas and spread the Good News, while we still are able to do so freely.
