Father Z has the answer…about Ground Zero

A counter-proposal for the Mosque at Ground Zero

CATEGORY: Saints: Stories & Symbols, The future and our choices — Fr. John Zuhlsdorf


I have been following the debate over the building of a mosque at Ground Zero in Manhattan.

I have a counter proposal.

Let us build a chapel dedicated to Sts. Nunilo and Alodia next to the mosque.

Saints Nunilo and Alodia were a pair of 9th c. virgin martyrs in Huesca, Spain. They were born to a Muslim father and Christian mother. However, they chose their mother’s Christianity.

And so during the Emirate of Abd ar-Rahman II it came to pass that in these little girls were first put in a brothel and then were executed as apostates according to Sharia law.

Their feast day is 22 October.

I think their relics are in the Cathedral of Pamplona, having been translated a couple times.


So, what do you think? Perhaps this would put things into perspective for the current braindead politician of the hour, Michael Bloomberg, King (oops-Mayor) of New York City? I’m just sayin’… Ad majorem Dei gloriam, Sofia

  1. Love your addition to the discussion, Father Z. Best to have a truly inclusive discussion rather than the edited version taking place in some press outlets.

    I weighed in on the subject with a blog post suggesting an in-depth mediated conversation should take place that puts all interests on the table.

    While Franciscans from FAN commented on relations with Muslims and noted the success Francis enjoyed with the Sultan, I noted that they overlooked the Franciscans that were martyred. It only points up the idea that reconciliation will only come after a “difficult conversation.”
