August 22nd: Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

But fears of terrorism for another reason...

From The Blotter:

While no extra safeguards are in place, U.S. law enforcement are not ignoring the possible significance of tomorrow's date, August 22, a date that marks an important historic event on the Islamic calendar.

Internet websites have been full of speculation that it could be a target date for terrorists in commemoration of the return of the 12th imam, a supposed day of reckoning for Shiites.

August 22 was rumored by intelligence experts to be a possible date that the London plotters would blow-up passenger planes headed towards the United States, though it is not known if the suspects were Shiite extremists.

  1. Mike, if you check tomorrow's First Reading at Mass, the hairs on your neck might bristle. If August 22, 2006 is a date of infamy, OT Scripture, i.e., Ezekiel concurs. We must pray for Our Queen Mother to help us see HIS LIGHT in all that may or may not transpire over the City of Peace, on Her Feast Day.
