This weekend, with the blessings of that nation's emir, 5,000 faithful will celebrate Our Lady of the Rosary's historic consecration as the first catholic church in Doha, Qatar. Yet there is no cross, no bell, no steeple or sign because some Muslim people have deemed it as offensive and the parish priest, Father Tom Veneracion worries about backlash. Sadly, a national referendum has been called to determine the fate of the church. They are very brave, and let's hope it causes no bloodshed
