Roman Invasion of Scotland

Surprising how far North in Scotland the Roman Legions reached.
A lot of interesting archeological discoveries.

"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Septimius Severus and others overran almost the entire island, or the entire island, the only problem was the peoples of the Highlands could never be brought to any sort of proper battle. Maximius Thrax fought a battle far into Germany. Quite possibly, instead of the usual forward defence or incursions, he might have considered neatening the Roman borders by taking more of Germany, and perhaps not have sent Pope Pontian and  Hippolytus of Rome to the mines.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.
