Pope Francis and the Vatican has introduced the world to their god they been worshipping all along, Lucifer. According to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church, The Morning Star is the creator of the world and the father of Christ. He brought "light" to the human race. This announced was made to the world April 27th, 2014 during a ceremony where Pope John paul the 1st and Pope john Paul the 2nd.This declaration is unprecedented and should cause concern to the world. It's no coincidence that the first Jesuit Pope would make such a shocking statement. He has been overhauling the Vatican since he got in. So far he has said Athiest will enter heaven as long as they do good works. He also stated Jesus is just a man and prays to the father and he is a co-mediator with mother Mary between God and man. This is their new statement made during Mass and other ceremonies: "His flame dawning his own son May, I say to you O' lucifer who knows no setting Christ is your son who came back from the dead and shed his light t ...

Dan Doherty (Inducted in 1991) Dan Doherty Sr became part of the PJ community in 1969 when the first of his three children (Dan Jr '73) enrolled as a freshman. Virtually since It opened, he was one of Pope John's indispensable volunteers. Dan's two other children, (Steve '77 and Tricia '81) would follow and years later his grandchildren Brian ('03) and Patrick ('09). All the while and for many years, Mr Doherty remained, becoming a fixture in the halls of PJ During his time at the school, Dan served as president of the Fathers Club from 74-75 and again from 84-85. The club was a group of about 30 men who, as Dan once put it, "moved mountains." From fundraising to chaperoning school dances, to working at the gates of games, he was there. Mr Doherty was also one of the founding fathers of Pope John Bingo, one of the largest fundraisers. In 1987-88 Dan was awarded the MIAA District H award for his conributions to PJ at ...

Padre Pio and his Friends from Vittorio Veneto, Italy: Frank Civicchi Frank Civicchi saw Padre Pio for the first time on June 23, 1967. That day, Frank received Padre Pio’s blessing in the St. Francis room of the monastery. Through an unexpected stroke of luck, Frank was able to go to confession to him the next morning. After Frank made his confession, Padre Pio said to him, “When you go back to your home, I would like you to form a Prayer Group. Frank agreed to do what Padre Pio asked of him. However, he really had no idea what a Prayer Group was or how to organize one. Frank imagined that it consisted of a group of people gathered together to pray but he was not entirely sure. As he was thinking about what Padre Pio had just asked him to do and wondering how he would be able to accomplish it, Padre Pio said to him. “Do not worry too much about it. You will manage.” To Frank, it almost seemed like Padre Pio had read his mind. As soon as Frank left the monastery he walked over to the administrati ...

Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph (San Jose, California USA) The Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph is a large Roman Catholic Church located in Downtown San Jose. The minor basilica is the cathedral for the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose in California. The basilica is named for Saint Joseph, patron saint of the universal church. The original St. Joseph's Church was called San Jose de Guadalupe built on the site of the current basilica in 1803, and was the first non-mission parish built in California for the benefit of Spanish settlers instead of the Mission Indians (Ohlone). The Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe was connected with Mission Santa Clara by the The Alameda which was part of the historic El Camino Real. The original adobe structure was damaged by earthquakes in 1818 and 1822, and a new adobe church was built from 1835 to 1846. The second church was severely damaged by the 1868 Hayward earthquake, and work on the third church began in 1869. The third church was destroyed by fire in 1875, and a t ...
America and Vatican, Physical and Spiritual Babylon Babylon in the Holy Bible has often been tied to captivity and in many cases slavery. The Bible constantly makes references of how Judah (African Tribe) went into captivity in Babylon as much of the African population in America has been brought here generationally on slave ships from Africa and they are also a large percent of the prison population. Present-Day Babylon Book of Revelation in the Holy Bible is America. It is Physical America; but also intertwined with The Vatican and Catholic Church on the Spiritual level. Both Physically and Spiritually, Babylon contains false teachings, abominations, slavery, deceit, power, and more. Spiritual Babylon (deceit; lies) will lead you to physical Babylon (captivity). Paganism derives from Egypt and the Babylonian Empire and has been continued to be supported and promoted by the Vatican present-day. Some of the Modern-Day Countries in the Babylonian Empire which existed, from 606 AD-536 BC were as followed: T ...
“Only through the Eucharist is it possible to live the heroic virtues of Christianity: charity, to the point of forgiving one’s enemies; love for those who make us suffer; chastity in every age and situation of life; patience in suffering and when one is shocked by the silence of God in the tragedies of history or of one’s own personal existence. You must always be Eucharistic souls in order to be authentic Christians,” - Pope John Paul II

1. Real name - Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu 2. At the age of 18, she left home and joined the Sisters of Loreto in Rathfarnham, Ireland 3. She took her vows as a nun in 1931, choosing the name Teresa to honor Saints Therese of Lisieux and Teresa of Avila 4. She began teaching history and geography in Calcutta at St. Mary's High school 5. In 1950 she started the Mission of Charity – a congregation dedicated to caring for the people 6. Mother Teresa was honored with many awards throughout her life, from the Indian Padma Shri in 1962 to the inaugural Pope John XXIII Peace Prize in 1971 to Albania's Golden Honour of the Nation in 1994 and the most famously, the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 7. She refused the traditional Nobel honor banquet, instead requesting that the $192,000 budget be given to help the poor of India 8. The Catholic Church has begun to move Mother Teresa along the steps toward sainthood, and she was beatified in 2003. Her official title is now Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
Anna was from a rich family and because of that she got a lot of marriage proposals from reputed families. Her foster mother wanted her to become a perfect housewife in a rich household. However, Anna sacrificed all this material fortune and wanted to dedicate her life to Jesus Christ. In 1923, Anna's feet were burnt when she fell into a pit of burning chaff; local hagiographies describe this as a self-inflicted injury in order to avoid her foster mother's attempt to arrange a marriage for her and thereby to fulfill her desire for becoming a Religious Sister instead.[2] This accident left her permanently disabled. Sister Alphonsa[edit] When it became possible, Anna joined the Franciscan Clarist Congregation, a religious congregation of the Third Order of St. Francis,[4] and through them, completed her schooling. Anna arrived at the Clarist convent at Bharananganam, Kottayam district, on Pentecost Sunday 1927.[1] She received the postulant's veil on 2 August 1928 and took the name Alphonsa of the Immaculat ...

28/11/2014 The Pope arrives in Turkey, a land able to promote an encounter of civilisations and identify viable paths of peace and authentic progress Vatican City, 28 November 2014 (VIS) – This morning Pope Francis began the sixth apostolic trip of his pontificate. His visit to Turkey is essentially of an ecumenical nature, like those of his predecessors; the country has occupied a privileged position in the geography of papal trips ever since the visit of the Apostolic Delegate Angelo Roncalli, referred to by the Turkish authorities as “the first Turkish pope in history” following his election as Pope John XXIII. Turkey was also the destination of Paul VI's fifth apostolic trip in 1967, a corollary of his pilgrimage to the Holy Land and his historic embrace with the Ecumenical Patriarch Atenagoras in Jerusalem. John Paul II continued the tradition with his fourth trip (1979) as did Benedict XVI with his fifth apostolic trip, in 2006. The Holy Father departed from Rome's Fiumicino airport at 9 a.m., ...

Saint Alphonsa (19 August 1910 to 28 July 1946) was a Syro-Malabar Catholic Franciscan nun who is now honoured as a saint.Sister Alphonsa became the first native Indian to be canonized In 2008. She is the first woman of Indian origin to be canonised as a saint by the Catholic Church , the second saint to be canonized in India and the first canonised saint of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, an Eastern Catholic Church of the Saint Thomas Christian community. She was born as Anna Muttathupadathu in a Syro-Malabar Nasrani family to Cherian Ousep and Mary Muttathupadathu in Kudamalloor, near Kottayam, on 19 August 1910.[1] She was baptised on 26 August. Alphonsamma, as she was locally known, was born in Arpookara, a village in the princely state of Travancore within Kerala, India. This lies within the Archdiocese of Changanassery. Her parents nicknamed her Annakkutty (little Anna). She had a difficult childhood and experienced loss and suffering early on in life. Anna's mother died when she was young, so her ...
DAY 24 (Nov 28) Mary's Retreat (Day One) Points to PONDER 1. As Pope John Paul II teaches, God the Father was the first to entrust himself to Mary, giving her his own Son in the mystery of the Incarnation. What humility! The Creator entrusts himself to his creature. And so, we, too, imitate the Son by humbly entrusting ourselves to the care of the Mother of God. What is true humility? How humble are you? What instances in your life can you cite as opportunities For the practice of humility? Were you aware at the time that you needed to exercise humility? 2. Mary's motherly attentiveness to the details of the couple being married at Cana begins Jesus' public life with the miracle of the water become wine. The lack of wine has been described as a symbol of the lack of joy in human life without God's grace. What human needs might Mary be attentive to and then bring to Jesus for his miraculous intervention if she were invited to your home today? 3. The attentiveness of Marv to the details of God in every expe ...

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 ...

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 ...
