"The age of casual Catholicism is over, the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident but instead we must be Catholics by conviction."

The terrible damage done by V2
The aftermath of V2 - a world in ruins!
Yes, the VII German rockets caused immense damage to the structure of society falling on the cities of Great Britain in the last months of the Second World War. Legend has it that I was born in the middle of a V2 raid, my poor mother unable to take to the air raid shelter in the garden stayed in the house.
And then I had to suffer another V2 later in my life!
