ALS, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a motor neural disease that affects some 30,000 Americans. Though it has several different causes, the general characteristics are all the same: muscle spasticity, muscle atrophy, difficulty in speaking, swallowing, and breathing. Of the five motor neural diseases, ALS is the most common with one out of every 100,000 people being affected. I think it's important that we educate ourselves as to what ALS really is, instead of just doing some challenge and raising money for something we know nothing about. From my personal experiences and watching all of these Ice Bucket Challenges, I have learned nothing about what ALS is other than a chance to do something "trendy" on the internet. The ALS Association has made over $5.5 million dollars in donations since July 29th, compared to $32,000 in the same time period last year. While this is amazing for the ALS Association, I believe it's important that we start to spread the wealth a little bit. There are lots of other cau ...

Catholic bishops warn priests, worshippers on Ebola virus 2 BY OLUSEYE OJO, IBADAN ON AUGUST 15, 2014 · NATIONAL Members of Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province of the Catholic Church, comprising Ibadan Archdiocese, Ondo, Ekiti, Ilorin, Oyo and Osogbo Diocese, have been urged to desist from the common self-signing with water at the entrance of the church and other occasions. President of the Province, Most Revd. Gabriel Abegunrin, and the Secretary, Most Revd. Felix Ajakaye, gave the directive in a communiqué issued at the end of a meeting by the bishops at the Pope John Paul Ii Pastoral Centre, Ado- Ekiti in Ekiti State. The bishops also suspended shaking of hands at Mass in all their churches in the province because of the risk of members contracting the Ebola virus disease, adding that all Nigerians must be careful in a bid to stop the international scourge. “We, as church in Ibadan Province, pending the end of the alert on the Ebola epidemic, hereby direct that priests, religious and pastoral workers, c ...

Thursday 21 August 2014 Saint Pius X, Pope (Thursday of week 20 in Ordinary Time) About Today Psalm week: 4. Pope St Pius X (1835 - 1914) He was born in the village of Riese, near Venice, one of ten children of a very poor family. He was ordained to the priesthood at the age of 23. He was successively bishop of Mantua and of Venice, and was elected Pope, against his wishes, in 1903. In his time as Pope, he sought to “restore all things in Christ.” He insisted on the separation of Church and State, and banned the formation of political associations that claimed exclusive religious sanction for their political programme, whether of the Left or of the Right. He revised the code of Canon Law, founded an institute for scriptural studies, and initiated the revision of the Latin translation of the Bible (the Vulgate) and the reform of the liturgy. He lived in great poverty even when he was Pope, and preached sermons every Sunday in the courtyards of the Vatican, to any who would listen. In his simplicity and ...

Pope John Paul I died in September 1978 only a month (just 33 days) after his election. The suddenness of the death, together with the Vatican's difficulties with the ceremonial and legal death procedures (such as issuing a legitimate death certificate), have resulted in several conspiracy theories.
Solemnity Of The Most Holy Trinity Trinity Sunday, also known as Holy Trinity Sunday, is celebrated a week after Pentecost Sunday in honor of the most fundamental of Christian beliefs—belief in the Holy Trinity. The dogma of faith which forms the object of the feast is this: There is one God and in this one God there are three Divine Persons; the Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God. Yet there are not three Gods, but one, eternal, incomprehensible God! The Father is not more God than the Son, neither is the Son more God than the Holy Spirit. The Father is the first Divine Person; the Son is the second Divine Person, begotten from the nature of the Father from eternity; the Holy Spirit is the third Divine Person, proceeding from the Father and the Son. No mortal can fully fathom this sublime truth. The feast of the Most Holy Trinity may well be regarded as the Church’s “Te Deum” of gratitude over all the blessings of the Christmas and Easter seasons; for this mystery is a synthesis ...

The Religious System Of Eight Religions Remains A Strong War-Raging Combination Leading The Kings Of The Earth Today From The City That Sits On The Seven Hills Of Rome Notice the following 09/22/96 Dateline interview by Stone Phillips with Carl Bernstein about the power of the Pope. Phillips: The Pope—how many divisions has he got? Soviet Dictator, Joseph Stalin, poking fun at the fact that as one of the world’s most powerful men doesn’t have a single soldier to command. And yet according to a new book, it was a Pope, Pope John Paul Ii, who helped trigger the collapse of the Soviet Empire. Tonight the exclusive story of how a Pope, a President and a spy secretly conspired to wage and win the cold war. Bernstein: We now have the missing pieces of the puzzle of how communism fell, because the Pope’s role has always been what is missing. This is a man who has marked his time. He has marked our era. It’s a portrait of Pope John Paul Ii you’ve never seen before, perhaps never even imagined. A relig ...

Mr. Ten Percent: The Man Who Built — And Bilked — American Soccer Vladimir Rys/Bongarts / Getty Images In the middle of 1989, suburban soccer dad Chuck Blazer had just lost his job, had no income, and was struggling with debt. But he did have a few things going for him: He was audacious, with a keen eye for opportunity; he was a splendid salesman; and he knew a vast amount about the world’s most popular sport. Not the fine points of on-field strategy — he’d never actually played the game — but rather the business of American soccer, which was, back then, woeful. Compared to baseball, basketball, and football, soccer was a starving runt. Multiple professional leagues had flopped. TV networks couldn’t even figure out how to fit commercials into the 90-minute, time-out-free games, and they rarely bothered to broadcast the sport. The United States national team hadn’t qualified for a World Cup in nearly 40 years. A quarter-century later, American soccer has become an athletic and economic powe ...

What medical assistance should the State fund? Should an expensive treatment be provided for a problem that is entirely the result of reckless behaviour by the individual because by so doing other treatments to people who are ill by no fault of their own will necessarily have less funding. to Professor Brendan Bain, head of the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training (CHART) Initiative, some public health practitioners and agencies "have hypothesised that decriminalising the practice of anal intercourse among consenting adults would lead to a reduction in the incidence rate of HIV infections among MSM". However, he said that to date, published data have not substantiated that hypothesis. MAs a physician and public health practitioner, one of my responsibilities is to *** behaviours for their impact on health and well-being, When something is beneficial, such as exercise, good nutrition, or adequate sleep, it is my duty to recommend it. Likewise, when something is harmful, such as smoking, overeating, alco .. ...
Matrimony an imitation of God’s love for the church By Brian Pizzalato “Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:5-8). When the Second Person of the Trinity took on our frail human nature, he demonstrated divine humility. He stooped down into the muck and mire of human existence in order to raise us up and empower us to live a life in imitation of him. He did not come with thunder, lightening and a storm cloud. He came as a human embryo, fetus, infant, young child, adolescent and poor young man of Nazareth. This humility, this self-emptying of Christ, is something we are all called to participate in and imitate. This also goes for the married couple. In the previous column w ...
Pre-marital Sex: Lessons from Reason, Scripture By Fr. William Saunders The Catholic Church continues to teach that sexual love between a man and a woman is reserved to marriage. We find this teaching in the creation account of Genesis—Book 1, Chapter 1 of Sacred Scripture: First, God creates man in His own image and likeness, making them male and female (Genesis 1:27). In the next verse, the Bible reads, "God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it’"(Genesis 1:28). Before the man and woman come together as husband and wife, and before they express their love as husband and wife, they are first blessed by God. Only in marriage do we find God’s blessing upon the act of sexual love, or what is better termed, marital love. This physical expression of love in marriage is a sacred sign of a husband and wife’s covenant of love and love that they share in union with God. This marital love signifies the vows freely exchanged between each other and thereby reflects th ...

Had a dream where I was talking to a stranger who was really down on his luck. He asked for my shoes, as a joke, and I gave them to him. I remember thinking in the dream that these were the pair I own that are in the worst shape, and I had better pairs at home, but he was barefoot, so it seemed like a no-brainer. All I had to do was get home barefoot, and he would be better off than he was before I met him. He was shocked anyone would give him shoes. And then I rode a giant yellow unicorn over the water to Gryffindor and ate the most pies ever while Pope John Paul Ii and Debbie Gibson watched and made out. The end.

8 June 2014 ~ Pentecost Sunday Homily: Today, Tomorrow, and the Next Day Acts 2:1-11 Rev. David Mercer St. Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Church, San Jose, California   There appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim. [Acts 2:3-4]    Pour out, we pray, the gifts of the Holy Spirit across the face of the earth and, with the divine grace that was at work when the Gospel was first proclaimed, fill now once more the hearts of believers. [Opening Prayer, Pentecost Sunday] ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Last Sunday, we celebrated the Ascension of Jesus. I said that Jesus’ ascension lines up with a popular definition of a leader: a leader is one who knows the way, shows the way, goes the way, and then goes away, trusting that the task will be done. Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus fulfilling the mission that the Father gives him. The Gospels show ...
At the beginning of the 19th century, Anne Catherine Emmerich, a bedridden Augustinian nun in Germany, reported a series of visions in which she recounted the last days of the life of Jesus, and details of the life of Mary, his mother. The House of the Virgin Mary is a Catholic shrine located on Mt. Koressos. The house was discovered in the 19th century by following the descriptions in the reported visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824), a Roman Catholic nun and visionary, which were published as a book by Clemens Brentano after her death.[2] The Catholic Church has never pronounced in favour or against the authenticity of the house, but nevertheless maintains a steady flow of pilgrimage since its discovery. Anne Catherine Emmerich was Beatified by Pope John Paul Ii on October 3, 2004.

BRUCE BALVIN INTERNATIONAL SOUL WINNING MINISTRIES GROUP'S AND GOD'S FAMILY GROUP. TOWARDS GLOBAL SUNDAY LAW: Several thousands years ago, the king of Babylon decreed that his subjects must worship only in the way he saw fit. Three Jewish men, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, choose to follow their consciences, standing up against the king and his edict. Thus began a standoff that remains famous even to this day see (Daniel 3). Unfortunately we are seeing the same situation repeating itself today. The Pope is calling for the world to acknowledge and honor (Sunday) as a day of rest. Legislation that will force the world to worship and rest on (Sunday) would be the ideal solution. There are many voices clamoring to fulfill exactly such a goal, using economy, the environment and even the family as reasons to lesgislate (Sunday) rest. Another standoff is on the horizon. Those who refuse to give up the Biblical (seventh day Sabbath) will trials as tough as the furnace faced by Shadrach and his companions. Howev ...
After 2 weeks in Poland, these are the things I observed about the locals 1: they are obsessed with 2 things; amber and former Pope John Paul Ii(you see his picture everywhere!) 2: they can be as kiasu as us, sometimes even worse but they do it with much more class than us Singaporeans 3: to them rules are just guidelines and meant to be broken, testing water everywhere 4: you stop at zebra crossings for the cars, not the other way round 5: reckless drivers (at times you would think this driver is trying to get away from the police after robbing a bank) but they have skill (even the ladies and 95% of all the drivers drive manual transmission) 6: they queue super close to each other (like just 1-2 cm in between, one of the locals said its a habit from the communist era, I believe his actual words were "waiting in queues was a national past time back then") 7: most of them are pretty friendly when approached if not they just mind their own business (again the local said it was from the communist period, the ...
In June, 1979, Pope John Paul Ii visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau cell where St. Maximilian Kolbe died. His moving homily that day: 1. "This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith" (1 Jn 5:4). These words from the Letter of Saint John come to my mind and enter my heart as I find myself in this place in which a special victory was won through faith; through the faith that gives rise to love of God and of one's neighbour, the unique love, the supreme love that is ready to "lay down (one's) life for (one's) friends" (Jn 15:13; cf. 10:11). A victory, therefore, through love enlivened by faith to the extreme point of the final definitive witness. This victory through faith and love was won in this place by a man whose first name is Maximilian Mary. Surname: Kolbe. Profession (as registered in the books of the concentration camp): Catholic priest. Vocation: a son of Saint Francis. Birth: a son of simple, hardworking devout parents, who were weavers near Lódz. By God's grace and the Church's judgment: ...
    Imagining the Holy Spirit is somewhat more difficult than imagining Jesus.  With Jesus, we can conjure up a picture of a human being, a man, with clearly distinct features – Word made flesh, Son of God incarnate, embodied.  With the Holy Spirit, there is no such fleshly element, nothing as concrete or solid to grasp onto, in reality or even in our imaginations.  There is the image of the dove coming down upon Jesus at his baptism, but that only gets us so far.  Most of the images used in relation to the Spirit are less solid, more intangible, ungraspable – and yet they point us to important aspects of who the Spirit of God is and how we experience the Spirit.  Let’s look today at three particularly common images of the Spirit and see how they help us to understand the Spirit and this feast of Pentecost.      Firstly, the Spirit is presented in today’s story from Acts as a mighty wind:  “Suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the en ...
I love when atheists say: "Oh, popes are so corrupt, greedy, and liars." Then I ask a about Pope Francis and it's "except for him he's good."

PROTIP: If you THINK you are more CATHOLIC than the Pope or more knowledgeable that our best Apologists, like Karl Keating then chances are high you have over-estimated your discernment powers. I rebuked my Pastor in Seattle for denying Domineus Ieus by Pope John-Paul, II and I will also rebuke YOU if you do the same with our current Pope. I am LOYAL.

Congratulations to my son Esteban now going to Pope John High
June 4, 1963 Pope John XXIII, champion of world peace and Christian unity, died in the Vatican yesterday at the age of 81. A high tribute to Pope John came from President Kennedy, who led the mourning of official Washington. The President said that the Pontiff "brought compassion and understanding drawn from wide experience to the most divisive problems of` tumultuous age." "Normal diplomatic business" with Haiti was resumed by Washington. A sharp controversy has arisen in Moscow between the authorities and African students who have complained of discrimination. The United States has offered a special $2,000,000 donation to help finance United Nations operations in the Congo-and the Middle East. The contribution, with others, is expected to make up for reduced assessments assigned to underdeveloped nations.

Recently Pope Francis declared two previous popes saints: Pope John xxiii and Pope John Paul Ii and he is planing to declare another previous pope as a saint,Pope Paul vi.The primary criteria that the Vatican uses to declare a person saint is that the person must work miracles while dead.In declaring previous popes saints show that the Papacy believes and teaches that the dead are still alive,the natural immortality of the soul.According the Bible it is only God who has the right authority to declare people saints[Rev 14:12].The ceremony conducted by Pope Francis declaring people saints shows that he believes that he is God.THIS IS BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD.John malawi my views

You’re old enough to remember John Paul II’s papacy, but not John XXIII’s? Then don’t miss our fascinating interview two years ago with now-Cardinal Loris Capovilla, who served as Pope John’s secretary and was with him when the future saint died in 1963. Why did Pope John convene the Second Vatican Council? You’ll find plenty of answers here.
Hope this will help us understand more. in line with the canonization of Saints in the Catholic Church... source: wikipedia The Catholic Church teaches that it does not make or create saints, but rather, recognizes them.[12] In the Church, the title of Saint refers to a person who has been formally canonized (officially recognized) by the Catholic Church, and is therefore believed to be in Heaven. By this definition, there are many people that the church believes to be in Heaven who have not been formally declared saints but who are otherwise referred to as saints, since they are believed to be completely perfect in holiness.[13] Unofficial devotions to uncanonized individuals take place in certain regions.[14] Sometimes the word "saint" is used to refer to living Christians.[5] In 993, Pope John XV was the first pope to proclaim a saint. At the request of the German ruler, he canonized Bishop Ulrich of Augsburg on 31 January 993. Before that time, saint cults had been local and spontaneous.[15] Pope John ...
Beautiful Saturday, perfect weather, everyone did Tai Chi outside under the trees. Then a meditation inside. Lots of nice customers coming by, and everyone was in such a good mood. Tonight we got fresh fish and salad, and mint choc. ice cream for desert. Watching the life story of Pope John Paul 2 as he is being canonized as a saint this weekend. Also canonization of Pope John 23rd. on same day. Nice energy to observe this amazing ritual in real time when we can. Hope you all had a nice day and evening also. Grateful also for all the cars on Montgomery rd. who slowed down and stopped to allow a mom and dad and babies of Geese to walk down Montgomery rd. and cross Stewart. Pretty nice folks in this city. love you.
Archbishop Sheen was from New York, the map shown Cuba at the center, Pope John was definitely critical about Fulton, they were both Jewish. Perhaps John was complaining why he could not have influence on the US President, while Fulton enjoyed his influence among the New York State. The photo at right was 1979, told about the end of Sheen's journey, finally he corrected his error by keeping a distance from Cardinal Cody of Chicago. Beautiful Blessings.

Flying out on the red eye tonight. Landing at JFK tomorrow morning. Hoping to get started from Horseshoe Cove, NJ in time to make it down off of the peninsula and into the heart of Middletown, NJ before nightfall. I need to pick up final supplies and get my cart from the UPS customer counter. I only have a 9 mile walk planned for the first day. But if I get started too late, then I'll just have to deal with it. Checked, checked and rechecked my list. I'm sure I'll forget several items and also realize I brought useless items once I get going. But that's part of the experience. Forecast for day 1 is cold, wet / snow, windy. Today is my last day in Utah until I cross the CO/UT border heading west in about 4 months. I've thought about doing this walk off and on for some time. A few months ago I made the decision to move ahead with it. I really can't believe it's happening. This thing is for real. I'm starting tomorrow on a journey to walk over 3000 miles unsupported across North America. I've got 5 days wor ...

LARGE CRAFT PHOTOGRAPHED BY HUBBLE TELESCOPE February 8, 1994 Just days after space shuttle astronauts repaired the Hubble Space Telescope in mid December, the giant lens focused on a star cluster at the edge of the universe – and photographed something strange. Despite new repairs to the Hubble Telescope, NASA refuses to release old photos or take new ones. In 1994, a researcher smuggled one top-secret photo the Hubble Space Telescope had taken of what is presumed to be a large craft. Weekly World News media was the first to print the image and report on the findings, but despite the media coverage, NASA refused to acknowledge the existence of the photo. When they finished their work, the telescope trained its enormous glass eye on the outer reachers of the universe. From what I understand, the first images it received were nothing more than kaleidoscopic bursts of color and light. As adjustments were made and the focus sharpened, NASA analysts couldn’t believe their eyes. After checking and rechecki ...

Stole this. The Marine Gunny: Pope John Paul dies of old age and finds himself at the gates of Heaven at 0300. He knocks on the gate and a very sleepy-eyed watchman opens the gate. "Wadda ya want?" I'm the recently deceased Pope and have done 63 years of godly works and thought I should check in here." The watchman checks his clipboard and says, "I ain't got no orders for you here, just bring your stuff and we'll sort this out in the morning." They go to an old WWII-era barracks, 3rd floor, open bay. All the bottom racks are taken and all empty lockers have no doors. The Pope stows his gear under a rack and climbs into an upper bunk. The next morning he awakens to sounds of cheering and clapping. He goes to the window and sees a flashy Jaguar convertible parading down the clouds from the golden headquarters building. The cloud walks are lined with saints and angels cheering and tossing confetti. In the back seat sits a US Marine Gunny, his medals glistening on his chest, a cigar in his mouth, a can of San ...

Thoughts from the Saints for Lent:"O Lord Jesus, you who at the beginning of your public life withdrew into the desert, we beg you to teach humanity that recollection of mind which is the beginning of conversion and salvation. Leaving your home at Nazareth, you wished to experience solitude, weariness and hunger. To the tempter who proposed to you the trial of miracles, you replied with strength of eternal wisdom, in itself a miracle of heavenly grace. It is Lent." A Holy Father and Patriach of Rome; Pope John XXIII.

I attended Pope John Paul Ii formally Central Catholic... As a student and a parent of a child that has attended I feel for the shut down but it's a business that has been struggling for years. I felt strong about the "beliefs" they so strongly enforced but I'm not going to lie I was hurt when Mazen attended which is why he is in Rock Crusher many things were said and I feel they are not the family they use to be ... I feel a lot has to do with the financial troubles but because of there choices and decisions I made other choices for my family which I'm happy with. I hate to see so many people lose the only "home" they know but if they would have done a lot of things different I feel the enrollment would have NEVER dropped and they wouldn't be in the position they are in. But I still support them and always will with my heart just not my money.

Many years ago, Pope John Paul !! came to Harlem. For days the city had been hard at work, heavy machinery was brought in filling huge potholes in the streets that too long had been neglected and forgotten. City workers scoured and brushed the streets, buildings were cleaned and Harlem was "prettied" up for the Pope's arrival. One women, looking out her apartment window, saw the unusual activity in the heart of Harlem, and commented: "It's nice. But I kinda' wish he could have seen it like it really was". May that serve as a parable for us all.
Bl. Angela Salawa 1881 - 1922 Beatified By: Pope John Paul in 1991 Angela Salawa was born on September 9, 1881 in Siepraw. Angela was the youngest of nine brothers, and grew up undernourished, weak and sickly. In her late teens, she went to work as a servant for a family in Cracow. For almost twenty years, Angela was in domestic service. In 1913, she became a Secular Order Franciscan. During World War I, she worked in hospitals, tending prisoners of war without regard for their nationality. In 1917, Angela became ill. After five years of suffering, she died on March 12, 1922, in extreme poverty, but with a reputation for sanctity.
2. Holiness Necessarily Entails a Dedication to the Christian Mission: Hand-in-hand with genuine charity is our sense of Christian mission. There is no genuine holiness apart from a radical orientation toward the spiritual and material good of others. In a word: there is no holiness without mission. As Blessed Pope John Paul Ii reminds us: The universal call to holiness is closely linked to the universal call to mission. Every member of the faithful is called to holiness and to mission. This was the earnest desire of the [Second Vatican] Council, which hoped to be able “to enlighten all people with the brightness of Christ, which gleams over the face of the Church, by preaching the Gospel to every creature.” The Church´s missionary spirituality is a journey toward holiness … (Encyclical Letter Redemptoris Missio, 90). Our times cry out for this kind of holiness, one enflamed by the ardent determination to bring as many of our brothers and sisters as possible to Christ.
"Thus at the Cross we find ourselves at the very center of the fulfillment of the promise contained in the Proto-gospel: the 'seed of the woman...will crush the head of [Satan]' (cf. Gen. 3:15). By his redemptive death Jesus Christ conquers the evil of sin and death at its very roots. It is significant that, as he speaks to his mother from the Cross, he calls her 'woman' and says to her: 'Woman, behold your son!' Moreover, he had addressed her by the same term at Cana too (cf. Jn. 2:4). How can one doubt that especially now, on Golgotha, this expression goes to the very heart of the mystery of Mary, and indicates the unique place which she occupies in the whole economy of salvation?" - Bl. Pope John Paul Ii, 1920-2005
t Do Catholics worship Mary? No, but like Jesus we love, honor and venerate His blessed mother. The Catholic Church has never worshiped Mary, and never will. Catholics worship God and God alone. Heaven is not a "dead" place. Catholics believe people in heaven are very much alive. (Mat 19:29, 25:46, 10:17-22, Mk 10:30, Lk 10:25-30, Lk 18:18-30, Jn 3:15-16). We think Mary is totally alive, and is praying for us the way a faithful pastor would pray for his congregation, except much more so. She's interceding for the unborn, for mothers contemplating abortion, and for many others who are experiencing sorrows in our world, and who want to grow closer to Jesus. Why do we as Catholics honor, love and venerate her so deeply? We love Mary first of all because Jesus did. As Saint Maximilian Kolbe said, "Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.” Catholics do not put Mary on par with God. Mary is certainly worthy of reverence, but not worship. Catholics beli ...

However, the modern idea of it leads to slavery.

Christopher is a popular theologian who specializes in making the dense scholarship of Pope John Paul Ii’s "Theology of the Body" accessible to a wide audience.

Beware of the Satanic New World Order! Initiated like this: Pope John Paul Ii during "World Day of Peace" speech on Jan. 1, 2004: "More than ever, we need a new international order that draws on the experience and results achieved in these years by the United Nations," Achieved like this: The World Goodwill Commentary on the United Nations' plans: The UN, through its international conferences and special sessions, has called the world’s attention to...the need for a new international economic order...the work of the UN goes forward, steadily building the foundation for a new world order. Ends like this: Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV) 16 And he (THE POPE) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might BUY or SELL, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

A sweet revenge... Satanist to Saint. Blessed Bartolo Longo (February 10, 1841 – October 5, 1926) was a Satanist priest who later repented and became a lay Dominican, dedicating his life to the Virgin Mary. He was eventually awarded a papal knighthood. Pope John Paul Ii, who would call him the "Apostle of the Rosary".
TAURUS: April 20 - May 20 Words to associate with your Taurus child: practical | conservative | reliable | generally well grounded | determined | powerful | focused | patient | determined | stubborn | self-repressive | introverted | rigid Taurus StarSign: The Taurus child has a sweet, calm disposition. They like a soothing and secure environment. Although fairly relaxed they will also enjoy the occasional rough-and-tumble activities. They enjoy spending time with family so are quite content to play with siblings. They are generally sociable beings and are comfortable having friends of both sexes. These children thrive outdoors so ensure they spend plenty of time in the park and get them involved in activities when older. They may occasionally be prone to bouts of laziness so be sure to assign chores around the house to make them feel useful. Reward systems make them feel appreciated and more likely to contribute. Taurus children can be stubborn at times so keep rules simple. Repetition is very necessary w ...

Find todays readings at “If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.” MT 6:14 On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul Ii was shot and critically wounded by Turkish assailant Mehmet Ali Agca. Following the shooting, the Pope asked people to pray for Agca, whom he had sincerely forgiven. In 1983 he visited Agca in his prison cell and the accused assassin reportedly kissed his signet ring. The power of forgiveness is a grace that we each have been given. Forgiveness is something that is tough to grant, especially when we find ourselves hurt. To forgive others is to love and put the wounds of the past behind us. To love another even when they have committed a serious wrong against us is to realize that we are all human and we too fall short of God’s grace. When we offer the grace of forgiveness as did Pope John Paul Ii we receive the same grace many times over. Come, let us follow. Do you have someone who needs to hear your words of forgiveness ...

I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! My very self you know.” —Psalms 139:13-14 Created in the image of God, all human life is sacred and possesses a dignity that comes directly from our creation and not from any action of our own. “This teaching rests on one basic principle: individual human beings are the foundation, the cause and the end of every social institution. That is necessarily so, for men are by nature social beings.” —Pope John XXIII, Mater et Magistra (Mother and Teacher)

Prayer can truly change your life. For it turns your attention away from yourself and directs your mind and your heart toward the Lord." -Blessed Pope John Paul Ii
During World War II, there was a man who worked for I.G. Farben and his job was to sell cyanide-based poisons to the Auschwitz gas chambers. You can guess why. This man was Pope John Paul Ii. I thought the Popes raping little boys was bad. I guess it's comforting to know that your "religious leaders" are completely okay with the Holocauast, and even gave the Nazi's the best weapons to kill the Jews. Oh yeah, and John Paul the II removed the ban on Freemasons being in the Vatican. Probably because he was one. Religion is okay but commercialized religion and the Catholic Church are complete frauds. All the Vatican is is a center for Power. They have controlled Europe for 1000's of years.
An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie, for an excuse is a lie guarded. --Pope John Paul Ii

Prayer for the Family Lord God, from You every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. Father, you are Love and Life. Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, born of woman, and through the Holy Spirit, fountain of divine charity, grant that every family on earth may become for each successive generation a true shrine of life and love. Grant that Your grace may guide the thoughts and actions of husbands and wives for the good of their families and of all the families in the world. Grant that the young may find in the family solid support for their human dignity anfd for their growth in truth and love. Grant that love, strengthened by the Sacrament of mariage, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. Through the intercession of the Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that the Church may fruitfully carry out her worldwide mission in and through the family. Through Christ our Lord, Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life for ever and ever. Amen. ~Pope John Paul ...
Let's be eclectic! Let's celebrate pluralism! Down with dogmatism! Nobody has the monopoly of truth. Politics is about dialogue and mutual respect! -- so goes the post-political program of the apathetic students. Let me remind you of Pope John Paul Ii: "To believe it possible to know a universally valid truth is in no way to encourage intolerance; on the contrary, it is the essential condition for sincere and authentic dialogue between persons." The Pope is right, my dear young friends. If you just tolerate and accept everything, then, what does dialogue mean? If we celebrate plurality of truths, we become hollow minded like sponge that simply absorbs whatever liquid it encounters. No! Today, we need to have firm convictions. And these convictions should propel us to fight for what we believe. Pluralism is a sickness. Having a conviction does not prevent pluralism. Let them have their truths, but let's smash them!

Children of the Kingdom Father Edward Hopkins, LC Mark 10:13-16 People were bringing little children to Jesus in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he became indignant and said to them, "Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it." And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them. Introductory Prayer: Lord, I believe in your love and care for me and for my family. I believe that you call me to help protect, guide and inspire innocence and holiness in others. I trust that you will show me how to do this better. I love you, Lord, for the purity of your love, and I wish to love you with the fullness and innocence of my baptismal faith.

Obama and Kerry, still clueless. 5 hours ago thirteen giant Ilyushin-76 (NATO codenamed IL-76 Candid) air transports flew into the Crimea and landed another 2,000 fresh Russian troops at a military airfield near Sebastopol. Just great, Pope John Paul Ii, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher must be rolling in their graves.Cold War II

"I plead with you - never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged. Be not afraid" - Blessed Pope John Paul Ii
The world knows that Obama is weak on foreign affairs. In the last few years, Reagan advisors have said that inthe early '80s, Reagan and Pope John Paul Ii sat down at the Vatican and plotted the downfall of communism in Eastern Europe. American money was funneled through the Catholic Church to the Polish labor union Solidarity. Also, Reagan told the Soviets that if they invaded Poland, it would be war. Reagan is almost universally loved in Eastern Europe. Many countries have one statue of him; some have two. Poland has a statue of him and Pope John Paul Ii sitting on a park bench. Two truly great men! Too bad we can't clone them! Our enemies were terrified when Reagan was in office. Now they laugh at us. My autographed pic of Reagan is my most prized possession.

Pope John Paul Ii - The Gospel of Life - An abbreviated version of Pope John Paul Ii's Pro-life Encyclical - published 1995 (almost a full two decades ago) The serious sin of abortion Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable. The Second Vatican Council defines abortion, together with infanticide, as an "unspeakable crime." But today, in many people's consciences, the perception of its gravity has become progressively obscured. The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behavior and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name. Procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing, by whatever means it is carried out, of a human ...

"If you ever feel distressed during your day — call upon our Lady — just say this simple prayer: 'Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.' I must admit — this prayer has never failed me." Blessed Mother Teresa True devotion to Mary is essentially following Jesus. She is not the Savior; she is not God. But she will always lead us to the Savior, her Son Jesus, the Son of the Living God. That is why, the last words spoken by Mary that were recorded in the Gospels were imperative: “Do whatever he tells you.” First, she reminds us that it is Jesus who is the true Savior; she is just the Handmaid of the Lord. So our devotion to her should always be directed to Jesus. And second, she exhorts us to action. Following Jesus is not a matter of passive waiting, but of doing what he commands us to do. This is clearly illustrated in the miracle at Cana. Jesus could have done the miracle out of nothing. But he instructed them: “Fill the jars with water.” Fortunately they heeded Mary’s admoni ...
Our JV Baseball team defeated Pope John Paul Catholic, 10 to 7! Way to go, Trojans!
While Angels Weep I’m in a quandary. The judge determining Mary’s SSI benefits has ruled that she is not disabled enough to warrant benefits…and he made it personal, claiming that I manipulated people and that Mary (guileless, naïve Mary) is lying. It was not a surprise. He tipped his hand early in the proceedings when he found out that Kate was receiving benefits. He made it clear then—and now—that he considers Mary and me to be potential welfare cheats and he is the last bastion of justice for the hard-working taxpayer. He is right. My two daughters are, currently, a drain on the public safety net. I am asking for societal support to provide for and protect my daughters while we work to get them stable and healthy. Were it not for ACA, I’d be asking for medical insurance support that would cost taxpayers thousands of dollars a year for each. But, after that—he is so wrong. For, like so many people with a political agenda, this judge believes that he understands what a life with disabilit ...
Friday, February 28, 2014 Blessed Daniel Brottier (1876-1936) Listen to Saint of the Day Daniel spent most of his life in the trenches—one way or another. Born in France in 1876, Daniel was ordained in 1899 and began a teaching career. That didn’t satisfy him long. He wanted to use his zeal for the gospel far beyond the classroom. He joined the missionary Congregation of the Holy Spirit, which sent him to Senegal, West Africa. After eight years there, his health was suffering. He was forced to return to France, where he helped raise funds for the construction of a new cathedral in Senegal. At the outbreak of World War I Daniel became a volunteer chaplain and spent four years at the front. He did not shrink from his duties. Indeed, he risked his life time and again in ministering to the suffering and dying. It was miraculous that he did not suffer a single wound during his 52 months in the heart of battle. After the war he was invited to help establish a project for orphaned and abandoned children in a ...
No class, dangerous fool. The Soviet is rising, headed by KGB; under a new name it moves to take back Eastern Europe by force...and our President leaves for happy hour. Reagan, Thatcher & Pope John Paul and the millions butchered by the Soviets all roll in their graves today.

Pope John Paul Ii and Pope John XXIII will be canonised on April 27 2014
Like many Catholics, I grew up in a family that recited the Rosary every night. And we knew why we did; as Mom would often assure us, the most effective person to take our prayers to Jesus was his own mother. As a good son, how could He refuse her? As children, we often came to the nightly Rosary with protest — “in a minute, Ma” — but having settled on our knees, it was a lovely, quieting time, one that bonded our family of nine kids at the end of a day of the usual sibling tensions. Years later, when we gathered for our parents’ wakes, and then for those of siblings, we prayed the Rosary together and it bonded us still. The Rosary crusader Father Paddy Peyton was right when he said, “The family that prays together, stays together.” The gentle drone of the Hail Marys helped introduce me to what I later knew as meditation. My mother would encourage us to “just think about the mysteries.” How wise she was. In his lovely apostolic letter, Rosarium Virginis Mariae (RVM), Pope John Paul Ii ca ...

While preparing the shrimp for tonight's family dinner (approx 15 guests) I was watching/listening to the Frontline story titled "Secrets of the Vatican". After 23 minutes of listening to the victims accounts of Priests raping and abusing children from all over the world, and the Vatican's attempts to cover up the scandal rather than address it, I turned the *** thing off. 23 minutes of an hour long documentary was all I could stand. Pope John Paul and Pope Benedict were *** cowards and if there is such a place, they better be rotting in *** We shall see if this current guy is any different. I am unaware of the previous hundreds of years of these monstrosities committed by this religion on it's children.
Speakers at the Men's Conference in Columbia, SC Sat. March 1: Joseph Lombardi The grandson of Vince Lombardi, Joe, has Football and coaching in his blood. He played tight end and graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy. During his military service he decided he wanted to be a coach.

After his first NFL season, working as an offensive assistant on Jim Mora's staff in Atlanta in 2006, Joe caught on with Coach Sean Payton and the Saints in 2007. He continued as an offensive assistant for two seasons until he was promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2009.
