Five Catholics Crucified Like Christ

These holy men and women followed in the footsteps of Jesus, even dying on a cross.

Jesus said to his disciples, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it” (Luke 9:23-24).

While Jesus is primarily referring to a figurative cross of suffering that all disciples are required to carry, some saints took it a step further and literally carried a cross to their own crucifixions.

They did so willingly, knowing that to die a martyr on a cross was to unite themselves completely to the sacrifice of Jesus. These saints were confident that Jesus would say similar words to them as he said to the good thief, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43).

Original Post
Diversity is a man made happening down through the ages.
It wasn't a design by God nor did he stop it.  
 
The Tower of Bable was being built by 25 different races and they
kept themselves separated. There were 25 different roads that lead
to the Tower with enough room for a wagon and  enough space for
a wagon between the different roads.
 
Having finished the first ground level story they were into the second
level when God had enough and confused all the languages.
They tried for a while but soon gave up in complete frustration.
 
Was a highway to Heaven the reason for the tower or was the
plan for a different reason. They already moved into the first
story pagan idols and was well on their way for a pagan temple.
Now man has separated himself with race and language but not
as far as war is concerned...
 
How much freedom does different people lose because of 
diversity--- Is diversity in itself evil..??

We have minds to think and reason.  The natural world is diverse. 

Genesis 11:1-9

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,a]" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;">[a] they found a plain in Shinarb]" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;">[b] and settled there.

They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babelc]" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;">[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.


Diversity keeps people in check.  Without it, we end up with slavery, genocide, holocausts, the trail of tears, etc...
