I Won't Be Shopping on Black Friday!

Want to join me at Mass thanking the one who bought us -- and at what a price!

Happy Thanksgiving from Me and George MacDonald!


First things first.

We went to Mass early this morning to thank the Giver of all our gifts. Eucharist means thanksgiving so it is the perfect start to a day giving thanks. We prayed for all our dear ones near and far including everyone whose life has touched ours. That includes you if you are reading this message. May God bless and keep you this Thanksgiving Day and every day of the year.

We are united because we share the same Father God. He loves all His children, even the ones who don't know him. If you don't know Him yet, we are praying for you especially today. And here's a quote from George MacDonald's book, There and Back, from a delightful little character named Barbara, who doesn't know him yet, but sees his fingerprints all around her and longs to know Him. May you share that longing:
Just Fancy!...if God were all the time at our backs, giving us one lovely thing after another, trying to make us look round and see who it was that was so good to us! Imagine him standing there, and wondering when his little one would look round, and see him, and burst out laughing -- no not laughing -- yes, laughing -- and laughing with delight -- or crying, I don't know which! If I had him to love as I should love one like that, I think I should break my heart with loving -- I should love him to the killing of me!
Many of the saints loved him that way and burned out like candles in serving Him. What a blessing to be like them. Make me a burning furnace of charity, Lord!

The Judas Kiss of Heresy!

Never give Jesus a Judas kiss!
Read and weep! The author of this, Fr. Frederick William Faber was a convert from Anglicanism to Catholicism, a follower of John Henry Newman. What zeal he had for the "Faith of Our Fathers," which he articulated in the well-known hymn. Think of how many in the Church overlook and coddle heresy today and pray for a Catholic awakening, especially among the clergy!
If we hated sin as we ought to hate it, purely, keenly, manfully, we should do more penance, we should inflict more self-punishment, we should sorrow for our sins more abidingly.

Then, again, the crowning disloyalty to God is heresy. It is the sin of sins, the very loathsomest of things which God looks down upon in this malignant world. Yet how little do we understand of its excessive hatefulness! It is the polluting of God’s truth, which is the worst of all impurities.

Yet how light we make of it!

Do Democrats Love Riots?

It's a fair question, I think.

They love killing babies in the womb -- especially poor black and Hispanic babies. Many of their biggest fundraisers are rich whites like Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood who oversees hundreds of abortion mills in the inner cities. There's a fortune to be made in killing minority babies!

They love killing babies in the Third World and sterilizing their moms.  USAID (Agency for International Development) has been up to its neck in that eugenics agenda for decades.

Why Didn't the National Guard Deploy in Ferguson...

...until the devastation was well underway?

Got answers, President Obama?

Were the Rioters Channeling Michael Brown?

First Michael Brown robbed the man and then the looters trashed his store. Victimized twice, where are the compassionate liberals defending this man's rights? And the rights of other innocent victims whose stores were destroyed to allow the lawless to vent their "justified anger."

Where Did the "Gentle Giant" Come From?

...gentle roots, of course!

Michael Brown's Stepfather Tells Protesters to "Burn This Bitch Down!"


"[Brown's stepfather] is an ex-convict whose rap sheet includes two felony narcotics convictions, according to state records. He pleaded guilty in 1997 to a marijuana distribution charge and was put in a shock incarceration program and placed on probation for five years. After violating probation, Head’s release was revoked and he was remanded to state prison.

CCHD - The Scandal Goes On and On and On and.....

I sat in Mass yesterday (not at my home parish) and listened to the announcement for the second collection to benefit CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development). It was all the usual drivel about how the collection helps the poor, yadda...yadda...yadda. Not a word was said about the organizations receiving grants that promote abortion, contraception, homosexuality, etc. Of course, that would have a chilling effect on the purse and pocket pickers running the so-called "charity."

CCHD has a scandalous past and its present isn't too pretty either. As Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute revealed today, things go on as they always have with Catholic money funneled to organizations undermining everything Catholicism stands for. Read their report about 2014-2015 grant recipient Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition (NBCCC). It promotes homosexual activism and communism! Yes communism!

Why?

Why do the Catholic bishops allow this to go on? Write to your diocesan bishop and ask why they continue to fund this national collection? Its continuation undermines the trust of the flock for their shepherds. What would you think of a shepherd who went out every night with a knife and bled his sheep? That's what CCHD does to the sheep in the pews, and it's way past time for it to stop!

Here's the Lepanto Institute's press release issued today.

The Lynch Mob Didn't Get the Verdict They Wanted....

A young boy shows he's learned the lessons of violence!
....so they're burning down their town.

Makes sense, eh? What business owner in his right mind would rebuild among these barbarians?

Ferguson is a model for how to destroy your own community. Raise "gentle giants" who think nothing of robbing and terrorizing businesses then attacking police officers. Make sure your children "don't let anyone tell us what to do." Give them a wink and a nod when they curse at authority figures like teachers and school bus drivers. Ignore their acts of shoplifting, vandalism, and violence. Yup...that appears to be the model under which Ferguson operates.

I was talking to a school bus driver yesterday.

Homosexual Rapist also Top Obama Bundler!

Shhhhh - Top Obama bundler accused of child rape: Column

Are we surprised when another enthusiastic Democrat commits a reprehensible crime? Read the Democrat platform that champions the murder of children in the womb. Why would a group that favors child-killing not wink at a little child abuse? As Joe Sobran often said, the Democrats are the evil party. 
Businesses face massive clean up after Ferguson lootings! 
They wear the compassion mask when it suits their agenda, but who is fomenting riots in Ferguson? Look at the community organizers. Obama met with them recently with the message to "Stay on course." What exactly did he mean? He was, after all, talking to those organizing the protests in Ferguson which have frequently ended up in violence, looting, and burning. But, hey, that kind of behavior always advances the Democrat agenda of race-baiting and class envy. And a few injured or dead people and hundreds of damaged businesses are just collateral damage.

Pray that when the Grand Jury's decision is announced that no one is injured or killed in the anticipated melee! Our Lady Queen of Peace, throw your mantle of protection over the town of Ferguson and all the people of peace and good will who live there. Fulfill the angel's promise of "peace on earth to men of good will."

Don't Follow Worldly "Kings," but the King of the Universe!

...who makes us His sons and daughters.



Check out Real Life Catholic

Who is the King of Your Heart?

On the Feast of Christ the King....What matters to you most? Your possessions? Your significant other? Your next meal? Your addiction?

Why would you settle for things that will fade, rust, and die? Even the people in your life are a threat to your salvation if they become idols who take the place that only belongs to God. When you love them in Him, your love for them is true and pure and good.

But do you know God? Do you know how intimately He loves you and wants to be the Lord of your life? Bow down today before Christ our King and beg Him to show His face to you. Once you look into His eyes, truly look into His eyes, nothing in life will ever satisfy you again except your relationship with Him! "O Lord, you made our hearts for Thee and ever restless will they be until they rest in Thee." (paraphrasing St. Augustine)

Lord Jesus, reign in my heart and make me grow ever closer to Your Sacred Heart that beats with such love for me. Mary, my mother, take my hand and lead me to your Son that I might be His humble maidservant as you were!

I love you, Lord Jesus, increase my faith.

HRC Founder Arrested for Raping Minor

...but that won't keep VIRTUS, the bishops "safe touch" program from telling everybody that homosexuality isn't a problem.

The Logical Consequences of Obama's "Prosecutorial Discretion!"


by Father Tom Collins

Regarding President Obama's "prosecutorial discretion" over the past six years and his recent executive orders regarding those who violate our immigration laws, it is worth noting the following three points, which apparently have yet to be raised by government officials, the media (including conservative pundits) or the clergy:

How Will You Spend the Last Week of the Liturgical Year?

Tomorrow is the last Sunday of the liturgical year, the feast of Christ the King. How will you spend the final week of the year? Will you focus on the Holy Trinity reflecting on how Advent can bring you closer to God? Or will you focus on the unholy trinity of "me, myself, and I."

What gifts will you prepare this Advent to put under your Christmas tree for the Christ child?  Can you give him daily Mass? the daily rosary? a daily or weekly holy hour? Confession at least once during the penitential season? Visits to a nursing home or prison or rosaries in front of an abortion mill?

For families with children here's a suggestion. Make a beautifully decorated box with a slit in the top. Every day when you light your advent candle, let each member of the family write down the gift for Jesus for the day and put it in the box. After you decorate your Christmas tree put the gift in a prominent place underneath. On Christmas Day open this box first (Whose birthday is it after all?) and read all the gifts your family has prepared for Jesus. Won't that focus on the real reason for the season?

"The people in darkness have seen a great light." How will you bring light to your little corner of the world during the next month beginning with your family? It's worth thinking about, eh?

Makes Me Want to Move to Nebraska - Thank You, Bishop Conley!

Lincoln Diocese to Offer Mass ad orientem at the cathedral during Lent

Read Bishop Conley's Column Here's just a bit:
Since ancient times, Christians have faced the east during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to remember to keep watch for Christ. Together, the priest and the people faced the east, waiting and watching for Christ. Even in Churches that did not face the east, the priest and people stood together in the Mass, gazing at Christ on the crucifix, on the altar, and in the tabernacle, to recall the importance of watching for his return. The symbolism of the priest and people facing ad orientem—to the east—is an ancient reminder of the coming of Christ.
Send Bishop Conley an email saying thank you. Or you can post a comment on the article.
