‘General Interest’ is like my orphan category. These articles really didn’t have a home anywhere else, but they deserved a good home nonetheless.
So, there we were standing and awaiting the final blessing from the Bishop and out-of-no-where in the center circular section near-rear of Church a woman, short in stature, perhaps in her mid-fifties, wearing a white veil over that had slightly fallen over her eyes stands up, with her arms up and outward in the direction of the sanctuary, palms slightly inward.
While a portrait of MLK Jr. or any non-Catholic saint would be quite fine to place in a position of honor in a Protestant church, it is very inappropriate to do so in the holiest space of a Catholic Church, if anywhere there at all.
If you haven’t heard by now, Catholics are on the wrong side of history when it comes to issues such as homosexual marriage, contraception, abortion, and any other number of life destroying issues.
There are three holidays in the United States that are reserved to celebrate men – George Washington Day, Columbus Day, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I don’t celebrate any of them. I never have.
AGENDA: Grinding America Down is the definitive film that finally puts the pieces of the puzzle together. If you have ever wondered why America has been falling apart from within, you will love this movie. Please share with everyone you can and order a few copies to give to pastors, representatives, and conservative leaders. America needs to see this film!
Here are the choices that religious institutions under the law of the 501(c)(3) have:
1. Comply with the law, and shut up about it.
2. Comply with the law, while fighting to change its restrictions, or
3. Forfeit the 501(c)(3) and render unto Caesar his taxes.
The divine principle at work here is that when we do not render unto Caesar what belongs to him, we are, thereby, disabled from rendering unto God what belongs to God. We cannot serve two masters. Either we cling to the things of Caesar, or we cling to the things of God.
Perhaps if we truly believed in the Real Presence of Christ at Mass; perhaps if we truly loved the Presence of Christ in His Word, His Priest, His People, and His Eucharist, we’d be something other than our ordinary self at Mass. Perhaps we’d be a peculiar people at worship.
To the contrary, what does give me pause is the dangers of Mainstream Catholic Media, which has the potential to be even more dangerous because we actually trust it. MSCM has to realize that we want to keep trusting it. We don’t want to disregard as we have the secular mainstream media. Enough is enough, and once is enough of this type of scandal.
CATgear has been around since 2000 I had never heard of it. It’s not just a clothing company – it’s a ministry. According to Dominic it’s been their goal from the beginning to help our high school students better understand their faith specifically with Mary and the Rosary.
Out of fear of losing what rightfully belongs to Caesar, the Church has lost it’s call to be the Pillar and Foundation of Truth in this country. The Church in America can’t be trusted or depended upon to tell us the truth because it clings to Caesar’s entitlement.
