Don Minutella is an Italian Catholic Priest from Sicily who has become nationally known for his open righteous criticism of Pope Francis, Amoris Laetitia, and the False Church of modernism.
Because of his outspoken defense of the Catholic faith, Father Minutella was officially removed from his parish and forbidden to celebrate Mass, administer the Sacraments, and preach.
He was ordered to remain silent for a period of nine months.
He obeyed.
Father Minutella has been, and continues to be, unjustly and viciously attacked by the Italian media, including a mean-spirited exposé program called “The Hyenas”, a satirical TV show based on Argentinian telecast “Caiga Quien Caiga” and well known for its underhanded and devious journalistic practices.
After the Curia informed him that he would receive a “double excommunication” if he did not make two public acts of fidelity to Pope Francis on social networks, Father Minutella recorded the following video as a response.

Here’s a Miraculous Medal Novena from EWTN that’s on the compact, one might say efficient, side.  If you want a much longer one, here is one with variable daily prayers from America Needs Fatima.

I know this reminder is a bit early but it’s been in my queue for a few days and I’m afraid I’ll forget if it goes much longer.  The Novena can start on Saturday the 18th or Sunday the 19th, the feast is on November 27.  Typically I try to finish Novenas on the vigil of a feast but you can go your own way, just like Lindsey Buckingham says in one of the great kiss off songs of all time:

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,
penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal,
we your loving…

At least, maybe, when it comes to the canard of instant mass deportation.

But in reality, in their recent confab discussing the hot-button topic of immigration, what was presented an attempt to basically refute lay complaints that the US bishops – reverting to unfortunate, damaging, hurtful stands they took in the 70s and 80s – are infringing upon lay rights by insisting upon specific policy prescriptions as being the only doctrinally acceptable approach.  This echoes the dark days of the “Bernadin”-dominated US episcopate, when supposed paeans to “peace” and “justice” were in reality little more than far left talking points and anti-Reagan, anti-US defense rhetoric.

Well, personnel is policy, and Francis has been busy remaking the US episcopate in his own image and likeness.  With men like Blaise Cupich in positions of great influence, and the sidelining of more (relatively) conservative forces like Conley and  Chaput, this is hardly surprising. …

Man what a lucky guy.  I’ve never heard of this Steve Lee before, but he got access to a mighty collection of uncommon firearms to have a hand at.  Man I would LOVE to have an RPG-7 with real rounds.  I am not sure how one would even obtain the rounds, given that they are explosives.  I do know some guys who have had training RPGs that could not fire, but that’s no fun.  Of course, the machine guns would also be a blast.  And contra those who say automatic weapons have no usefulness, they absolutely do, suppressing fire can be hugely important and they are excellent at just that.  They are also excellent in a static defense role against large numbers and in scaring the jeebers out of the Feds when they come to take your guns away.  Heh.

Anyway, the song is fun and lighthearted and I found…

“Though for the purposes of this essay, I would like to first examine the film that probably got the whole genre started in 1959. The film is “Gidget,” staring Sandra Dee in the most glycemic shock role of her career. Unlike the beach films of the later 1960s, “Gidget” was released by a major studio (Colombia Pictures) as a vehicle for one of it’s newest stars. The film also featured Cliff Robertson who had already given a great performance in the dramatic movie version of William Inge’s play “Picnic.” Gidget was not an exploitation film, but it did appeal to teenagers who were the film’s target audience. As in most of her movies, Sandra Dee plays a relatively naive and sheltered middle-class girl on the verge of womanhood. In “Gidget,” she falls in love with a surfer (Moon-doggie) played by James Darren. Cliff Robertson’s character (the Big Kahuna) takes a liking to Gidget and allows her to hang around him and his group of surf-bum followers. One of the guys gets a bit too fresh with Gidget, but Moon-doggie comes to her rescue. The film’s most interesting line occurs after Gidget gets in an argument with her parents. Her father and mother want her date to pick her up at their house. But Gidget wants to meet him at a downtown cocktail lounge. Her father goes nuts. Gidget storms out of the house and her mother says (as we hear the sound of car tires peeling out of the driveway:) “she’s taking the car!” Later in the film, in another pivotal scene, Kahuna notices that Gidget is trying a bit to hard to attract Moon-doggie, so he arranges to scare her with a mock seduction encounter at his beach-shack. It works, and she flees with her innocence intact.”

Planned Parenthood……..

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

As we lamentably see in the news almost every day, the supposedly apolitical executive branches of government have become wholly politicized special interest groups who view their agenda – constant growth of budgets, personal wealth, and power – as being virtually as one with the democrat party and the establishment class of Repubniks.  This process, which has been underway since at least the early 90s, accelerated and metastasized unbelievably under Obama.

Still, a change of administration can have some impact on federal agencies, especially with the right leadership (I am not saying Sessions as AG is the right leadership).  Under Obama, massive evidence of Planned Barrenhood’s blatantly illegal murdered baby part sales operation was swept under the rug.  In fact, a deeply politicized, hopelessly immoral, and endlessly corrupt political machinery sought to persecute and even jail not Planned Barrenhood, but those who exposed their cynical greed.

Well, things may be…
