"Mary and the Moslems" is the title of a chapter in a 1952 book by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. In this chapter Sheen wrote: the present hour, the Moslems are beginning to rise again. If Moslemism is a heresy, as Hiliaire Belloc believes it to be, it is the only heresy that has never declined. Others have had a moment of vigor, then gone into doctrinal decay at the death of the leader, and finally evaporated in a vague social movement. Moslemism, on the contrary, has only had its first phase. There was never a time in which it declined, either in numbers, or in the devotion of its followers.


NOTE: The "strange icon" pictured here is copied from another article about Mary and her influence in Islam which was published by my former alma mater, of which I am usually not a fan. 


  1. That article give pause for reflection. It also without naming them debunk the bile and rivers of lies generated by many radical protestants, both against Mary, but also against Muslims
