Does the military action the U.S. is contemplating against Iraq meet the standards of a just war?

Subject: Prayers are never enough!

Prayers are never enough! Otherwise God will not send Mary to request us do more prayers, penance and reparation. She should say "Well done my children. Your prayers are enough".

Martyrdom is not evil. It is holy. And "dying of cancer" is not evil. My daughter has leukemia. I was very sad when I knew it, but now I PRAISE GOD for His letting that happened. Through our daughter, we learn how to love.

I entirely agree with you that we must "pray for the Iraqi’s and all the arab world-- those tortured--have faith that God will take care of us all if we follow him." The only concern is, ARE WE FOLLOWING HIM IN THIS WAR?
