“Quo Vadis, America?” Our Version of #SB51 “HalfTime” Show

5 February 2017

Always Catholic volunteers are boycotting the Super Bowl for 2 Reasons.
1. “Lady” Gaga has repeatedly offended Our Lord with rants agianst His Church and her involvement in Thelema a satanic cult formed by known occult leader & satanist Aleister Crawley.

2. He support of abortion publicly (she is a baptized Catholic) ,and for using her limited public persona as an “entertainer” to be a bully pulpit for anti_Catholic forces. We reject the notion that entertainers (who by the way are TOTALLY DEPENDENT on the public for their income), to continue to politicize every chance they get. They do have the right to Free Speech but we have the right to REJECT it.

Here is our contribution to HALFTIME: Enjoy!


For the Feast, Patroness of the U.S.+ A Prayer for Government by Archbishop John Carroll of Baltimore c.1791†

Prayer for Government

A Prayer by Archbishop John Carroll of Baltimore
November 10, 1791

Immaculate Conception of El Escorial – Bartolome Esteban Murillo 1660

We pray, Thee O Almighty and Eternal God! Who through Jesus Christ hast revealed Thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of Thy mercy, that Thy Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue with unchanging faith in the confession of Thy Name.

We pray Thee, who alone art good and holy, to endow with heavenly knowledge, sincere zeal, and sanctity of life, our chief bishop, Pope N., the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the government of his Church; our own bishop, N., all other bishops, prelates, and pastors of the Church; and especially those who are appointed to exercise amongst us the functions of the holy ministry, and conduct Thy people into the ways of salvation.

We pray Thee O God of might, wisdom, and justice! Through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist with Thy Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude the President of these United States, that his administration may be conducted in righteousness, and be eminently useful to Thy people over whom he presides; by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality. Let the light of Thy divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge; and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty.

We pray for his excellency, the governor of this state, for the members of the assembly, for all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, that they may be enabled, by Thy powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.

We recommend likewise, to Thy unbounded mercy, all our brethren and fellow citizens throughout the United States, that they may be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of Thy most holy law; that they may be preserved in union, and in that peace which the world cannot give; and after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.

Finally, we pray to Thee, O Lord of mercy, to remember the souls of Thy servants departed who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of peace; the souls of our parents, relatives, and friends; of those who, when living, were members of this congregation, and particularly of such as are lately deceased; of all benefactors who, by their donations or legacies to this Church, witnessed their zeal for the decency of divine worship and proved their claim to our grateful and charitable remembrance. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and everlasting peace, through the same Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.


Wise Voting Advice from the Bishop who SHOULD be @USCCB President

7 November 2016

Posted by His Excellency, Bishop Robert C.Morlino
at the Catholic Herald, the publication of the
Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin

Vote for the future of our nation

Dear Friends,

If you weren’t certain before, after this current election season, I hope you’ve now come to understand and believe that we are not in heaven!

I love the United States of America. I truly believe that our Founding Fathers had it right in so many ways, and that we have enjoyed a country that has provided — albeit still imperfectly — levels of freedom and opportunity for more people than any other in history. Nevertheless, I never made the mistake of thinking that this was heaven, or that some perfect candidate or party was ever going to usher in God’s Kingdom here on earth.

benedictine-cross-with-flagEven still, in my lifetime I’ve always enjoyed a relative sense of certainty that the vast majority of Americans and even politicians desired a future for our country that was good and just, in accord with the highest good, truth, and justice itself. And, I have to admit that it’s hard to maintain that sense of certainty anymore.

It would seem that many people and politicians have now abandoned, even theoretically, the notion that there is a highest good or objective truth or justice, much less try to work out policy and platforms in order to strive for the good in accord with that conviction.

About future of our country

Nowhere is this lack of certainty more clear than in our presidential election this year. When I look at our two major-party candidates, I am not convicted to vote for either one of them. But this election is about far more than “Hillary and Trump”. It’s not only about two candidates. This election is about the future of our country and its direction.

Now, before I go any further, I’ve certainly had people tell me to vote “third party,” or to write someone in. I’m not drawn to do that in this election either. There’s no doubt that I’m not happy about either Secretary Clinton or Mr. Trump, and I certainly wish there was another option. But at this point there really is not. We are going to get one of those two.

Now, if Americans (and especially Catholics) who share a belief in virtue-based society desire candidates who once again strive for the highest good, truth, and justice, then they need to work hard to achieve that end, day-in and day-out, during election years and, especially, in non-election years.

That being said, at present, the realistic choice we have before us is between two individuals running for president. In my opinion, writing someone else in is not going to be an effective means of bringing about that end in the present race.

bishop-morlinoAs I’ve said, this is one of the strangest votes for me in the 50-some years I’ve been a voter. Nevertheless, I do believe that the future of America is at stake in a very real way, in this vote.

In searching my own conscience, formed as best as it can be by the laws of human ecology and the teachings of our Church, I’ve come to believe that the very best that I can do is to vote to prevent a future where, because of constant attacks and assaults against our human ecology (the natural law) the potential is there for the complete “annihilation of humanity,” in the words of Pope Francis.

There are very real differences between the two candidates for president and their parties on so many issues, but in forming our consciences we remember always that there are priorities made clear by the Church. And in weighing the platforms of parties on issues, clear and certain weight is immediately given to fighting policies or planks that provide direct attacks on our human ecology.

Issue of abortion

Of course the most devastating issue facing our nation today is the continued destruction of over one million completely innocent lives every year by legalized abortion in our country. It is simply a fact that the Republican Platform asserts the sanctity of human life and affirms the fundamental right to life of the unborn.

On the other hand, the Democrat Platform states unequivocal support of free access to abortion, and — for the first time, this year — even goes so far as to include the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents at least some federal funds from going toward the provision of abortions, and the Helms Amendment, which prohibits U.S. foreign aid dollars from going to abortion. That is to say, not only do they wish to assert that the wholesale destruction of unborn children should be legal, both here and abroad, but they demand that all of us pay for it.

This issue continues to outweigh each and every other issue facing the nation at present. Do we desire to choose a future in which the wholesale destruction of a portion of the population is not only legal, but even increasingly paid for by our dollars?

Marriage and human sexuality

A second fundamental issue on which the two major parties have divergent stands has to do with the understanding of marriage and of human sexuality. Here too, we must ask whether we want a future for our country in which the fundamental understanding of marriage, and even of human sexuality, is so eroded that those basic foundations of society are not only brushed aside, but even attacked.

As Americans, and as a Catholic people especially, we are called to respect the rights of every person, to love each person as a cherished son or daughter of God, and to treat them with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. This issue is not about discrimination or about treating any person with anything less than charity, but it is about offering the truth, in love, and about providing clarity in charity.

We cannot allow for the destruction of marriage, which has always been the most stable and secure starting point for human society, nor can we allow for the complete annihilation of our humanity by way of “gender theory.” We must consider these issues in the context of our future.

Religious liberty

And thirdly, we must offer consideration to the defense of our religious liberty. Already I can imagine the complaints I’ll receive for this column. It will be stated that I am being “political.” In fact, I am not. I am being your pastor and am undertaking my duty to inform your consciences of some of the most pressing issues of our day.

I am making reference to the choice you have before you between candidates and parties, yes. And I am discussing my own sadness at the state of our world. But no, I am not being “political,” I am being human. And I am sharing my own conviction that I must act to vote for the future of humanity here in these United States and to avoid a future in which our nation’s policies are oriented to the annihilation of humanity.

Am I certain that I can prevent such a future anyway? No! What I am certain of is that one candidate has committed to policies and one party platform contains planks which would seek to continue direct attacks against our human ecology, in a clear and undeniable way.
Responsibility to vote

What’s at stake for the future makes it irresponsible not to vote. And in voting, I find myself, for the first time, voting to avoid something rather than to choose something or someone.

All I can say is that it is incumbent upon you to take seriously your responsibility for the future as well. If you wish to draw a conclusion from what I have said above, please do not mistake your drawing that conclusion for my having told you for whom to vote.

And in the meantime we can remember that our help is not in any candidate or any party. Our help is in the Name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth!

We pray hard for our country and for our world. We work hard to make them better. But we remember that our hope lies not in anything or anyone in this world, but in Jesus Christ and in the world to come. Thanks be to God!

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Praised be Jesus Christ!


If you love Venerable Fulton J Sheen, you will love this!

From the blog of @TorontoCatholic

Archbishop Fulton Sheen predicted the complete collapse of the United States of America

fulton-sheen-graphic-2

Dear American readers, your country – like Canada – is in total moral collapse. Far seeing prophets such as your Archbishop Fulton Sheen foresaw this decades ago. It was inevitable. America, founded on “religious liberty” and not Truth, was doomed to fail. Canada, especially once Catholic Quebec, fell from an even greater height, as She was once Catholic. Hence, the fall was greater, and of greater evil.

Nonetheless, it was the duty of Catholics in America to turn the United States of America into the Catholic States of America. It was the particular duty of the Hierarchy. Hundreds of Catholics in the United States were martyred for the Faith during the 19th century. The American bishops distinguished themselves in remaining silent about these saints.

The slaughter of millions of babies, the glorification of the breakup of family life, the promotion of sexual depravity and perversion has not gone unnoticed by Almighty God.

A Citizen’s REQUIRED Reading for #July4th: The Declaration of Independence

4 July 2016

4 July 2016 Anno Domini
Posted by LCpl Campbell, Sarah USMC

evolution-american-flag-betsy-ross

The United States’ Declaration of Independence may well be the most cited yet least read or understood document in American history.

Some have suggested over the years that each responsible U.S. citizen should take the occasion of the Nation’s birthday to read that precious document every year, something like pausing at Thanksgiving to give thanks or at New Year’s to ponder what’s past and ahead.

So here it is, in its historic entirety. For those who are curious to see how the historic document evolved, the wording refined and trimmed, through several writings, including those funny s’s that look like f’s, they can view side-by-side versions right here.

Independence Hall in the City of Philadelphia where the Declaration of Independence was signed

 

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

A Plea to God on July 4th: A Prayer for Government

4 July 2016

The following prayer was composed by John Carroll, Archbishop of Baltimore, in 1791. He was the first bishop appointed for the United States in 1789 by Pope Pius VI. He was made the first archbishop when his see of Baltimore was elevated to the status of an archdiocese.

John was a cousin of Charles Carroll of Maryland, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

benedictine cross with flag

PRAYER FOR GOVERNMENT We pray, Thee O Almighty and Eternal God! Who through Jesus Christ hast revealed Thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of Thy mercy, that Thy Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue with unchanging faith in the confession of Thy Name. We pray Thee, who alone art good and holy, to endow with heavenly knowledge, sincere zeal, and sanctity of life, our chief bishop, Pope N., the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the government of his Church; our own bishop, N., all other bishops, prelates, and pastors of the Church; and especially those who are appointed to exercise amongst us the functions of the holy ministry, and conduct Thy people into the ways of salvation. We pray Thee O God of might, wisdom, and justice! Through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist with Thy Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude the President of these United States, that his administration may be conducted in righteousness, and be eminently useful to Thy people over whom he presides; by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality. Let the light of Thy divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge; and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty. We pray for his excellency, the governor of this state , for the members of the assembly, for all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, that they may be enabled, by Thy powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability. We recommend likewise, to Thy unbounded mercy, all our brethren and fellow citizens throughout the United States, that they may be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of Thy most holy law; that they may be preserved in union, and in that peace which the world cannot give; and after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal. Finally, we pray to Thee, O Lord of mercy, to remember the souls of Thy servants departed who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of peace; the souls of our parents, relatives, and friends; of those who, when living, were members of this congregation, and particularly of such as are lately deceased; of all benefactors who, by their donations or legacies to this Church, witnessed their zeal for the decency of divine worship and proved their claim to our grateful and charitable remembrance. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and everlasting peace, through the same Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.

The Most Profound Reflection On Antonin Scalia, Anywhere.

16 February 2016

Neither Tarnished Nor Afraid

by David L Alexander at his blog, “ManwithBlackHat”
16 February 2016 A.D.

scalia david“Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor — by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.

“He will take no man’s money dishonestly and no man’s insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him.

“The story is this man’s adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.”

Raymond Thornton Chandler (1888-1959)

The Days After 9/11: Please, please NEVER FORGET…

11 September 2015

I really do not want to talk about that morning. I am not ready yet.(It’s 9/11/15 and I am STILL not ready to speak completely about it. I still do not understand why innocent people left for work that morning and never came home.

I lived in Monmouth County, NJ at the time (where I was born, raised and had returned back to) where the majority of people who lived in the surrounding towns commuted to Manhattan to work daily. My Dad did for almost 40 years. It is a way of life in Monmouth County. You work in NYC, have a lovely home down at the Jersey Shore and you raise your children in an atmosphere of comfort and for the most part, civility (of course there are the tourists in the summer, but we will be charitable).

You never think that one day you will get on the North Jersey Coast line train of NJ Transit with hundreds and hundreds of fellow commuters will never return home to that idyllic setting. Living there in Monmouth County on that fateful day is still way too painful to talk about. Yes fourteen years later, I am not ready. One September 11th I will be ready and I hope you are still reading this blog so you can get a true sense of what that day was like in a community which lost hundreds of souls.

Al I can do right now is pray. Pray for those souls, those left behind and that we do not forget that day.

Unfortunately it seems we have…

God love you,

Sofia

PRAYER FOR A DYING COMRADE

We pray that this comrade’s heart may not be troubled. His strength is going, and he has suffered a great deal, but he is not afraid. Grant that his sins be forgiven by Thee, and that all trials are past for him.
May he not worry about his family, which he loves dearly. He dies believing in Thee, as he has lived, believing in Thee. May Thy face and the happiness of eternal life shine splendidly before his eyes.

COMMEMORATION OF THE DEAD

Remember, O Lord, Thy servants, (name them), who have gone before us with the sign of faith and rest in the sleep of peace.

To these, O Lord, and to all who rest in Christ, grant, we pray Thee, a place of refreshment, of light,
and of peace. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the Safety of Our Soldiers

Almighty and Eternal God,those who take refuge in You will be glad and forever will shout for joy.
Protect these soldiers as they discharge their duties. Protect them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm.
May the power of Your Love enable them to return home in safety, that with all who love them, they may ever praise You for Your loving care.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

For Courage in the Time of Battle

O Prince of Peace, we humbly ask Your protection for all our men and women in military service. Give them unflinching courage to defend with honor, dignity and devotion the rights of all who are imperiled by injustice and evil.
Be their Rock, their Shield, and their Stronghold and let them draw their strength from You.
For You are God forever and ever, Amen.
