The Papal Coat of Arms: Why Did the Vatican Change It?
Does anyone know why the Papal coat of arms were suddenly changed by the Vatican from a five-pointed star to an eight-pointed star?
I'm sure there is a perfectly logical explanation but so far I've only found one article examining the mystery in depth to which a reader kindly drew my attention.
The Catholic Herald today reports that the theme for World Peace Day set by His Holiness will be 'fraternity'. It is wonderful that Pope Francis is reclaiming this word from the atheist communists, revolutionaries, socialists and of course Freemasons with which we associate it.
We must be brothers and sisters of our Heavenly Father, revealed by the One Whom the Father sent, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose Church alone can we attain to Salvation. The Eternal Father, who created us all to love Him and worship Him in this life and be happy with Him forever in the next loves us and we long to bring the good news of Salvation to all.
Of course, I'll be freaked out if the next WPD theme is 'liberty' and the one after that 'equality'. As if we don't have enough 'equality' already at the expense of 'liberty'. By the time the Lord returns, the whole World will have had it 'up to here' with 'equality'!
Our Lady Star of the Sea, ora pro nobis.
