“The State Department announced Thursday that America is cutting ties with the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). This U.N. behemoth is best known for cultural initiatives like designating and protecting World Heritage Sites. However, UNESCO also pushes population control under the euphemism “family planning.” The withdrawal will take effect on December 31, 2018.

Some people see this as part of fulfilling the Trump administration’s “America First” campaign promise. But it is also true that the United States’ relationship with UNESCO has been strained for years. In 2011, UNESCO welcomed Palestinian membership. The United States and Israel both stopped funding UNESCO as a result.”

Yesterday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump met His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican. The President said it was the “Honor of a lifetime.”

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  This blogger has been hearing a bunch of baloney about Donald and Melania throwing off some bad “vibes” during their trip to Rome.  This sure doesn’t look fake to me.

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.
