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.

54 Day Rosary For Our Nation – 15 August (Assumption) through 7 October (O.L. of the Rosary)

Posted on 11 August 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf at his blog,
“Father Z’s Blog”

Novena-for-our-nation-graphic-thumb-232x300Can we agree that our nation – I mean these USA – need some serious intervention and graces from God? I fear that if we don’t change our collective ways, God will either intervene somewhat less gently. Otherwise, He’ll owe Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

My friend Fr Richard Heilman is spearheading a 54 Day Rosary Novena for our Nation.

What do you do? Say the Rosary every day for 54 days.

This 54 Day STORMING of heaven through the intercession of Mary will take place from 15 August, the Feast of the Assumption, until 7 October, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto.

I’ve written about Fr. Heilman pretty often. Lately I interviewed him in PODCAzTs.

The National Catholic Register wrote this up:

“I call this our Nineveh moment,” said Father Richard Heilman, assessing the situation in our nation in reference to the story of Jonah’s warning to a wayward people.

Father Heilman is spearheading a major spiritual initiative to turn the tide and heal the country — the “Novena for Our Nation.”

The “54-Day Rosary Novena” will begin on Aug. 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption. The faithful are asked to pray daily for the nation to return to holiness, through the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on Oct. 7.

Knowing that Father Heilman, a priest of the Diocese of Madison, had experience with 54-day Rosary novenas through social media and that he recently launched the national Holy League, a group — including Father Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life — approached him to head this nationwide prayer campaign.

“They thought: ‘What better time than now, in this election year, the terrorism going on and the condition of this world and our nation, to do this,’” explained Father Heilman.

“All the signs are there,” said Father Imbarrato. “We have an immoral and corrupt government that is becoming more and more tyrannical. The fact of the matter is: We need a conversion of our culture, but, more specifically, of our elected officials or leadership. This 54-day novena and the Rosary Rally [on Oct. 7] is all part of the effort we need to end preborn child killing and attacks on marriage and the family.”

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

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.

Oh boy, ONLY in Sheboygan! #TallestUSFlag

26 July 2014

Proud to live in Wisconsin!

Lately a handful of crazies have made the news in Wisconsin. That’s NOT what Wisconsin is like. We are a God-loving, hardworking, patriotic and fun loving people. Here is a story about the REAL Wisconsin. Check it out!

FlagTimeLapseVideo-2

Standing 400 feet tall, the new Acuity Insurance Flagpole is the tallest flagpole in North America (#tallestUSflag). Located on the Acuity Insurance headquarters campus in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, along Interstate 43 between Milwaukee and Green Bay, the pole supports a 60-foot-wide by 120-foot-long American flag. Located at the base of the flagpole is a brick paver patio featuring the names of Sheboygan County residents killed in active duty from the Civil War to the present.

Flagpole Facts:

400-foot flagpole weighs approximately 420,000 pounds
There are two versions of the 60- by 120-foot flag:
– 220 pound flag is flown during normal conditions
– 350 pound flag is flown during harsher weather
Each star is 3 feet high and each stripe is 4 1/2 feet wide
680 cubic yards of concrete used in foundation
Over 500 gallons of paint cover the pole
11-foot diameter at base tapers to 5 1/2-foot diameter at top
Three pendulum-style tuned mass dampers reduce movement and vibration
Designed to withstand a low temperature of -42°F

For more videos, images, and information visit the Acuity Flagpole project page.

Thank you to Acuity Insurance proving corporations are made up of people…Patriotic and wonderful people. Thank you also to Milton Campbell who sent me the video. Milton loves our flag more than anyone I know and never fails to keep me abreast of stories about Old Glory. Deo gratias!


“Twisters as usual walk the walk…” The Twisters Tornado Relief Marathon

30 April 2011

By Teri Peters

Updates by Kimberly Morin

Assistance by all the Twisters!

April 30, 2011

The Twisters Tornado Relief Marathon

We are nine women from across America who joined forces less than a year ago with a focused mission; to sponsor and raise money for conservative political candidates. Our twitter bio states that we are “ a tightly knit group of superpower wielding, patriotic conservative bad-asses of the female kind.” Most of this is true. Unfortunately we don’t really have superpowers. Therefore this weekend we are asking for your assistance in a mission that is a departure from our norm. Beginning now, that mission is to provide a variety of assistance, primarily financial, to the victims of the deadliest tornadoes to hit the United States since the Great Depression.

Our avatar is a twister with clouds that resemble a heart. It has obviously been enhanced but the original image was born from an actual twister. As I have learned in the past few days, tornadoes have no heart. Though I live in California and have never experienced the wrath of a tornado I need not be an expert to know that Mother Nature has once again reminded us that she is the one with the superpowers.

Since the tornadoes began I have been worried about using the twisters hashtag. My concern is that someone affected by the tornadoes might find it insensitive or worse. It is not an irrational thought. In the midst of posting updates about San Diego’s 7.2 magnitude Easter day quake in 2010, I received a tweet expressing the hope that “ California would fall into the ocean” . From my perch under the dining room table, I broke down. Not wanting to cause any further strife to a victim, I have been pondering the thought of temporarily changing our avatar and dispensing with the twisters hashtag. As is often the case when I am troubled, yesterday I spent some time at the beach mulling things over. Sitting on the warm sand witnessing the familiar power of the sea, a thought occurred. Instead of disabling the hashtag we could use it to help the victims of this tragedy. The twisters tornado relief marathon was formulated. Within an hour the twisters were on a conference call and this plan was quickly formed. I stress “quickly” as we know we haven’t captured all of the links or resources and there again, we seek your help.

This post contains links to numerous relief agencies, information on how you can help and as much data as we could gather on short notice. The blog will be updated as additional resources come to light. Though our primary goal is to raise funds for the victims of these deadly tornadoes, we will also be posting information on rescue and recovery efforts. We have seen the great generosity of Americans on so many occasions when natural disasters strike and we are confident that with your help we shall rise to this challenge.

We are acutely aware that these are difficult economic times, even for those of us who did not lose our possessions or loved ones in the devastating storms. This does not daunt us. Our experience with political fund raising and social media has taught us that even a $5.00 or $10.00 donation adds up quickly and every little bit helps. We are posting a wide variety of charitable organizations and resources so if one is not to your liking for whatever reason; we hope you will choose another. We are only asking you to do what is within your means. All assistance is welcome including ideas. If all you can do is help us enhance this effort and/or spread the word, please do so. We are asking for your retweets and Facebook postings. Additionally, please email this and any updated posts to those who are not on social media.

As stated, this marathon was planned quickly and we know that we have not captured all of the resources. We need your assistance to inform us of additional relief efforts, organizations or any other information that will be helpful to our fellow Americans who have been impacted by this horrific series of storms.

Tragedy knows no political affiliation. Although “the Twisters” are 9 conservative women, we are hoping that this be an apolitical effort. Our ideology may differ but events such as these remind us that politics are unimportant when our neighbors are in need. We thank you in advance for your help with this marathon. We are not famous or wealthy but we do have social media as our arena. Let’s rock this!

You can track our posts by following us at @theTwisters and/or on our individual twitter accounts = @0402sgrl @1SupremeGoddess @AssKickyMcHotti @ConservativeInd @FlyingPatriot @GaltsGirl @hipEchik @Runedart @Suziplasse. We are also on Facebook at http://tinyurl.com/2dn4gs2 . Additionally, you can follow the #twisters hashtag on twitter.

The hour is late, the time is short. Please forgive any typos etc. The organizations we have chosen to begin with are as follows (in no particular order). Please help us help those in need. Thank you and God Bless.

UPDATE: This list has gotten quite extensive – a huge THANK YOU to everyone passing along information!! We are separating out by state so that if you are in that state or near and want to donate or volunteer you can easily find where to go and what to do. THANK YOU to all who are donating money, items and time – you have no idea how much this means to the people of these devastated states.

Please click here to go to the TwistersMoneyBomb.com blog for the complete Resource list…

NOW YOU KNOW WHY I LOVE THESE GIRLS! If you want something done right, go to #TheTwisters! Please go to the site and be generous…these are our people suffering in this devastation. AMERICANS! Our brothers and sisters of this great land. We give to the world, let charity BEGIN AT HOME!

God love the Twisters!

Best Political Story of the Year-The Twisters!

2 January 2011

Ending 2010 with the Best of the Rest

The last few months I have been trying to write a piece about a dynamic group of conservative women named, “The Twisters”. My health (or lack of) had forced me to put the piece off since before the November 2nd Election. Originally, I wanted to feature The Twisters and their their partnership with the Contract from America .  The candidates they supported had to sign it during their campaigns in order to be a Twister-endorsed candidate. Their “Twister Money Bomb” campaign for these candidates was featured on The Twisters Blog, The Twisters Money Bomb and on their Facebook page, simply titled, The Twisters.

I wanted to see the how and why of what these fearless women were actually doing. I figured just checking out their organization with the “Contract from America” and seeing which candidates they had backed actually won and for which office would be enough for a post about these gals. I was wrong…(Yup, I said it… LOL!)

I have to say that I was so impressed with their Purpose:“We’re here to walk the Conservative talk” and similarly, their Mission Statement: “To vet, back, and promote conservative candidates who have signed the Contract from America.” Additionally, they hit the homerun with me with their explanation of just what and who “The Twisters” are: “A tightly knit group of superpower wielding, patriotic, conservative bad-asses of the female kind.” Hoo-rah!

Before I get into my Rave about the girls, let me fill you in on their story as I have it from The Twisters themselves (with the help of Tina @0402sgrl on Twitter).

Our history is short and sweet. We ran into each other while ranting on Twitter. None of us had met before but we immediately recognized kindred spirits. I believe @Suziplasse came up with the term “Twisters” meaning Twitter Sisters but it soon became a double entendre. We are a force of nature both individually and together. We started chatting on conference calls and eventually it congealed into this organization dedicated to promoting conservative candidates. We have widely varying backgrounds but come together over our love of this country.

The Twisters hail from all over our beloved USA and they all are VOLUNTEERS…

Sofia’s Rave

I was lucky enough to have someone tell me about the Twisters not long after their organization came together. I started to follow them watching tweets and thinking, “WTH?” Why? Because NEVER before have I seen something come together so naturally in such a dynamic way in politics.

These women (noted above) epitomized the trend in America of conservative, smart, hard-working and patriotic women leading the way. Yes, we have been blessed with quite a few celebrity conservative women working the cable stations and making us proud. But as a grassroots organization this is the first group to pull itself together so quickly, so strongly and in such an organized way, it really impressed myself and many conservatives with whom I have had the pleasure of discussing Twister-mania!

These women pulled together a brand with such a timely fashion, it made my head spin. Impressed?, You bet. For quite a few years, I did business consulting and these gals…well…they are the goods.

What really moved me to pick their story as the political story of the year for ACBlog? The Twisters are about hope. I know, I know you’re thinking, PUH-LEEZ. you didn’t say “HOPE” did you, Sofia? Yep, I did. Mr. O at 16th & Pennsylvania NW hijacked the word but that doesn’t mean we can’t use the word so beautifully phrased throughout Scripture.Hah!

These women are the example to all of us about standing up and working for what we believe in. THAT’S why this is the best political story of the year. These women embody the American spirit. We are exceptional as a nation and The Twisters are the example of that very exceptionalism.

The Twisters will continue their success into 2012, I am sure. They are called to help us get back the very freedom being torn from our grasp.So, if you want to make a difference…go to their website, “The Twisters Money Bomb”, to their Facebook page, “The Twisters” and of course follow @TheTwisters on Twitter as well as each of the Twisters individually on Twitter (see above for links).

Know one thing: as long as there are women like The Twisters, there is hope for America because behind all successful men there ARE great women…like The Twisters…HOO-RAH!

For Twister gear, (so very hip, logo is definitely a icebreaker!) go to the girls Cafe Press page here.

LOVED DOING THIS POST “TWISTERS”!

Thank you and God Love you all,
Sofia
