Quote of the Day

Satan has deceived the world to believe that he does not exist, that there is no sin and that there is no hell.  Nevertheless, Jesus tells us something to the contrary.
“I watched Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10: 18).  “He was a murderer from the start; he was never grounded in the truth; there is no truth in him at all: when he lies he is drawing on his own store, because he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8: 44).

ALSO THE HOOKUP CULTURE FOR EXAMPLE:

See:  http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/scholar-punctures-illusions-of-pro-cohabitation-study

Look I’m no expert but I have lived through the “Live In Period” which we call formerly as co-habitation and let me tell you one thing I noticed and the words are known as fad and peer pressure. I’m sure many of you will tell me I’m old-fashioned and foolish in my thinking.  I humbly disagree.  I’ve seen the hook-up culture and much of what it has now led society to and into our distant future.  I leave this for the next generations seeking what their faith teaches.

Even our parents who believed at one time in marriage started believing that co-habitation is alright.  Well it’s not necessarily so.  We as Christians must re-discover the Church teaching and educate ourselves in our ignorance.  The world is trying to push all of us  into worldly things which are anathema to Jesus Christ and what He wants best for Christians.

Dont go down this path but try to carry your cross as best you can.  I’m not condoning abuse in any form but please try to find guidance in Christ and His teachings. Trust in Him.  It’s not easy and He said it wouldn’t be.

One thing I can tell you is this I almost bought into the sub-culture we have today. The new so-called family life and values.  I have sinned and I’m aware of the toll it takes on oneself  and the struggle to fit into this society which is leading to and forming the Culture of Death.  The “New Norm” as they are beginning to call it.

It is because were too hard pressed to discover what the church has to provide in this area.  We have become complacent and less believing in Christ when it comes to our own personal lives.  We trust more in ourselves and less in Him when it comes to the great decisions we face everyday.  Decisions we should share with Him.  We no longer ask Him for guidance and succumb to the fact that He is guiding our ways.

His will, not ours.   Now the above is an article from a professional and this small article I type is for simple folk like myself.  Both I think are important to note and ponder on and add to in wisdom.

If you’re a young Catholic I urge you and even some of you who have left and are thinking of coming back to the fold, study our faith and learn from earlier generations what we have done wrong.

Co-habitation in my opinion is a fad that went wrong.  I do not judge anyone for their habits now and in the past.  This is just a commentary and observation on my part. Its up to you to form a clear and concise conscience in this world.  Many of us and all of us who follow Christ must do so with His help in regard to this forming of conscience.

See:  John Paul II and many of our Popes on marriage and other written works about what they teach on marriage and many other subjects.

Also from Archbishop Timothy Dolan:  http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/archbishop-dolan-says-obama-administration-treats-pregnancy-as-disease

The above article warms my heart.  This is the priesthood.  I know their traveling with Timothy Dolan is only shortlived but will the Lord in this pilgrimage leave them with?

My hope is that memory of this historic trip with the Cardinal-Designate will leave them with hope for their priesthood for the rest of their lives.

Pray for our priests that they overcome and are happy with their vocations and that they walk the walk and talk the talk everyday.

That the Lord walks and shines in their lives forever.

This warms my heart in Christ and makes me see hope for the young Church which is always young.

Thank you Lord for your Priests.  Thank you Lord for your Church and Bride.

That what our Lord made, The Priesthood belongs to Him and that it endures at His will.  That it rises above the worldly and becomes what it is—Hope and Endurance.

People pray for your priests that they maybe holy and overcome the worldly and that they live for their vocation in the Lord.

Dear Kathleen

Why do you make the Natural Law your enemy?  Why do you persecute the Religious for sanctifying God’s Laws?  Why do you hate the unborn?  Why do you encourage this law that even Norma “Jane Roe” doesnt even concede to anymore?  Do you think you and many others are out of touch with what life really is? A precious commodity that is spurned for what?  Mainly because we feel only a precious few may be born perhaps but for what ends?

I only know that its a modern day blood sacrifice to evil in this world.  An evil that people scoff and say no longer exists but is considered consigned to fairy tales.  Not so, not so.   An evil that want us all to believe it doenst exist.  An evil that will eventually cost us on this Earth dearly.

We are not the enemy yet you make us your enemy peacefully and protesting of an unjust law to the unborn.  They have no voice accept humanity.  Yet you seek to undermine this humanity in your mandates and proclaimations.

You ignore the past in suffragettes like Susan B. Anthony and others who won women important freedoms.  They never condoned abortion yet why do you?  Do you even understand what you are doing?  You hand me and others who follow Christ’s Laws over to the spectre of Anti-Christ every day.  We know that the real deal will show someday and when he comes in his name and his mark will you hand us all over for the seat of power?  A power that is of principalities and high powers which seek the downfall of good over evil.  This principality and high power that you seek for your own ends.

Someday we will all stand before true Justice which will come.  Do you have a clear conscience in the work that you have achieved?  I hope so because I pity you most of all next to Barack Obama and others on Judgment Day.  It will come mark my words.  You and I will stand before the Almighty and He will let you and I know who will be written in the Book of Life.  You understand what I say here Kathleen.

We all invite you back to the fold from which you have strayed.  Come back to true Justice.  We will always love you in the truest sense of Christ our Brother.

Love in Christ your Sister

Holly J. Harrington
