Report: "Jubilation as abducted Catholic teenager is recovered in Pakistan." Altar girl had been kidnaped and forced to marry a Muslim, with the approval of authorities


Social media is buzzing with excitement after police in Pakistan recovered a teenage Catholic girl who was abducted, forcibly converted to Islam and married to a 44-year-old Muslim man in a case that sparked nationwide protests.


What strikes me is that there actually are Catholics in Pakistan. Our Church is truly universal, thank God.
