“….Normally, with the cause of temptations, you do not face them head on, that’s totally a mistake…that’s the Devil’s battlefield …”
Lent has begun this past Wednesday, Ash Wednesday. It is our spiritual trek to Good Friday and Easter. What a tremendous season Lent is! Have you decided on the prayer, penance and almsgiving that you will strive to perform in union with Our Lord’s grace? Perhaps, it would be good to mention some possibilities.Continue reading “Lent 2021”
“….We are all lepers, lets be honest, we all have diseases, they are called sins, they are called addictions, to be able to be healed we have to admit them…spiritually we can be healed through the sacraments, Confession heals us spiritually…”
In just a few weeks, Joe Biden has been true to his word.
Joe Biden gave the following remarks on 1/22/21:
Today (1/22/21) marks the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade.
In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack. We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care – including reproductive health care – regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status, or immigration status.Continue reading “Abortion and Holy Communion”
“….Lukewarmness is getting used to venial sin… When we become lukewarm and we get used to venial sin, that’s lowering our defenses to the mortal sins…”
“….The list goes on of those who seemingly are at the end, they are at the last hour; they are the workers of the last hour. Hopefully we will rejoice in knowing that someone had come back to the Faith…”
January 25th is the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. St. Paul’s conversion is an event that should give us hope: no one is beyond Our Lord’s grace.
Before Paul’s conversion, he persecuted Christians. He was present for the stoning to death of St. Stephen, our first martyr. He arrested and imprisoned Catholics.
Then, something drastic and unexplainable (to the secular world) happened, Saul became a Christian and changed his name to Paul. Not just any Christian, the greatest missionary the world has ever seen! He was fearless in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Inspired by God, Paul authored many of the books in the New Testament.Continue reading “The Conversion of St. Paul”
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has released a draft proposal of a new policy to be forced upon all public schools, promoting radical transgender ideology, and undermining the role of parents in the raising of their children.
The draft is entitled, ‘Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools.’ Please read it!
LifeSite.com has provided an easy opportunity to contact our state legislators to voice our disapproval of such a policy. We can also use LifeSite.com to access Virginia’s official Town Hall ‘Public Comment Forum’ to enter a comment. Please take advantage of these tools to voice disapproval of such a radical policy in our public schools before February 3rd when public consultation ends.
Isn’t it interesting that the more those in leadership move away from God and His truths on morality, the more another ‘morality’ is sought to be imposed? Again, take a lesson from history. It has happened over and over again.
God is Love. How can those who have little time for God and His teachings possibly guide us on how to love one another? Who are the ones who are taught to love their neighbor because that person is made in the image and likeness of Almighty God? It is Christians, particularly Catholics – not someone who has some vague religious belief that ultimately centers on himself.Continue reading “Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools.
