What country bans rosaries?

That's beside the point.

No, it isn't. It's good information to know so that I can either avoid bringing my rosary to such a country or to avoid the country itself!


Sorry, that sounded kinda harsh.

The country is Saudi Arabia but I'm sure many other countries ban the Rosary, along with other things like Bibles and Crucifixes.
Find a 6 figure salary in Murica.
OR
find a lower paying job in America, avail yourself to the TLM and offer up the "suffering' from a lower salary to Almighty God. That'd be your best bet

OR with my 6-figure salary, I can travel to a TLM in a different country.

Edit: Never mind. Sunday is a work day in Saudi Arabia, so that wouldn't be possible.

The Japs lasted 200 years without Mass.
...for what that's worth...

I wouldn't step foot in Saudi Arabia, TLM or otherwise. They have very few if any personal liberties there.

On the positive side, pornography and sodomy are illegal. I can deal with the alcohol ban since I don't drink but the pork ban will take some adjusting.

Being deprived of the Mass in a land where you once had it due to a regime change is one thing. Intentionally placing yourself in a land where it is forbidden for monetary gain is quite another.

There are nearly 2 million Filipinos in Saudi Arabia, including construction workers, those working in the petroleum industry, and even, sadly, a number working in unfree and coerced conditions. Saudis are notorious for treating foreign household servants like slaves. Filipinos are overwhelmingly Catholic, and there are efforts by Filipino clergy to minister to them---courageous and especially needed given the difficulty in practicing the Christian faith in such conditions.

Quote:Father Corros said a priest from Caceres archdiocese in the Philippines serves as chaplain to OFWs in Kuwait but could not attend the meeting because of a conflict in his schedule. He added that he knows some Franciscan Filipino priests minister among OFWs in Saudi Arabia and Dubai, but "they don\'t get in touch with us."

Secret masses have been held among Filipinos. Last year, a priest and twelve laymen were arrested and charged with proselytizing for holding mass in a hotel.

I'd be interested in secret Masses only if they are valid.
