    Thank you all for this talk! I am life-long Catholic from Poland, i was away from church for 7-8 years and was freed by Christ after “release prayer” 3 months ago and converted back to Catholic church fully understanding the miracle of Holly Mass and Eucharist 😀 I really love your website.The fact that I’ve found it is actually a response from Jesus (as I believe) to my concerns about protestants and pentacostals and who is right we or them.I’ve heard in one of the above movies that Catholics in the USA are on defensive position..believe me it’s the same in Europe nowadays !! Catholics are the most attacked religious group in Europe.Even in Poland which seems very Catholic it’s the same.European Union and our government attacks our religion in many ways especially Catholic Radio Maryja (Mary).That’s because communist and leftwingers took over most of the power in the whole EU.Thank you guys for the CHNetwork project !! God bless You !!
