No, 25,000 showed up for mass only . I mentioned nothing about the people lined up on the street. Not all in brazil had tickets . They are free but you do need tickets for the mass. Duh!<quoted text>
Star a million faithful showed up for the USA's Presidents inauguration last month out of a nation of 300 million and a city of what 4 million out of Nation that is 50% Democrat.
When Pope Benny came 25000 out of a city of 25 million showed up, out of a nation of 200 million of which 70 % claimed to be RC.
The numbers were disappointing and embarrassing not my words but the RCC's words.
So white wash the fact the RCC has lost some 30 million RC's to evangelical fellowships in 6 years or so.
Claim all you want that when you bow before a graven image of a blonde haired blue eyed statue of a so called Marry who was from the line of David brown eyed olive skinned, pray before her to intercede and forgive your sins as do millions of RC's claim she's the Mother of God who is non-created being that this is not Idolatry. BUT IS IDOLATRY the Bible says so not me.
YOU could not commit an act that fits every criteria of Idolatry better you have all the bases covered.
This is not throwing stones this pointing out the Obvious and any Open minded rational logical Brazilians who now read the bible for all its worth now see how utterly wrong RC doctrine and practice concerning Mary is they are LEAVING by the MILLIONS.
The RC has taken Goddess worship to new absurd heights and it will be its undoing.
Pretty soon the RCC will have her in charge of lighting and thunder the Mary mythology is a run away bull, PUN intended LOL
Please save your disengenous I feel sorry for you on the keyboard it makes you look smug and puffed up.
You wouldnt know this b/c you are a protestant!!!!
We honor Blessed Mother Mary. This is not idolatry in your mind it might be, so stay with it, protestant.[you cant love Blessed Mother more then Jesus did] Jesus said 'Behold your mother" while dying on the cross.
Sure Brazilians read the bible and interpret it to their liken. This is why you guys can not agree on Scripture. LOL 42k different protestant churches, how many in Brazil?
We are still NUMERO UNO IN BRAZIL, lol only 22% are protestant and I wonder how many agree with one another. Judging from this board, you guys are always disagreeing about something. Question for you, how many attend your church???? 30 or so??? lol
The mass in Brazil 2007
This is in Holy Scripture be sure to open your bible and read it.
Or do you just skip over it??
The Magnificat (found in Luke 1:46-55) is the Blessed Virgin Mary's canticle praising our Lord.
And CIE, I feel sorry for you b/c you are so lost!!!
