Update on Notre Dame Fire and a Correction

It's interesting that, even while the fire was going on, officials were calling it an accident. Does that sound like a sensible way to conduct an "investigation."

Bishop Athanasius Schneider had this to say:

Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back in the Water....

Great white shark weighing 1,668 pounds spotted off Florida Panhandle, researchers say

And it's not just sharks you need to guard against.

Holy Week Meditation: Spy Wednesday -- Did Jesus Love Judas?

The short answer: ABSOLUTELY! Perhaps His compassion was greater for Judas than for all the others knowing his tragic end. Judas was one of the chosen ones among the disciples called to be part of the select twelve! And even given the particular responsibility of holding the purse and administering alms to the poor. Wasn't giving him that role an act of trust?

"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."  William Blake
And while I'm reflecting on those whom Jesus loved, what about the pharisees and sadducees plotting to kill him? Did He love them?

This is How You Smear a Good Priest! Bring Back Fr. Escalante!

Blue Ridge Leader 10 hours agoOur Towns, Top News0 Comments

By Valerie Cury

In November of 2018, Father Ronald S. Escalante, Pastor of Saint Francis de Sales Church in Purcellville, was placed on administrative leave by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.

Whoddu Guessed? Some of those Drag Queens are Child Molesters!

I won't link to Malestia Child's Instagram page,
and I don't know if he does story hours, but what

does he imply by adopting a name like that? Our
culture supports child killing. Molesting next?

Yet Another “Story Hour” Drag Queen Turns Out To Be A Child Sex Offender

Hey, Library Board, of course! We know you care about children. So bring the drag queens on into the children's section of the library to groom the little ones to except "gender fluidity."

Oh...and if little Johnny says, "Mommy, I have to pee!" send him to the Potty with "Malestia Child" or "Sharon Needles" or "Phallic Cunt."

Yes, these are all the monikers for real life drag queens. Motherhood and apple pie, anyone?

Allowing these folks access to children is absolutely insane! In Houston alone two sex offenders volunteering to scandalize children have been exposed (no pun intended) by the local Mass Resistance group. How many others remain underground because they change their aliases so much they're hard to uncover.

Guest Post: "When the Bad Are Punished, Others Become Better."

Governor Andrew Cuomo celebrates killing
children even at birth with two thumbs up.
Communion and Catholic Pro-Abortion Politicians

by Robert G. Marshall

Evangelical Christian, Rev. Franklin Graham, son of the famed Rev. Billy Graham, in three “tweets” in two minutes captured the hopes and sentiments of many Catholics by urging N.Y. Cardinal Dolan to excommunicate “Catholic” N.Y. Governor Cuomo for bizarrely celebrating and signing a third trimester abortion law. Since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision Catholic bishops have been in a position to question “Catholic” politicians who openly vote for abortion and who still claim to be Catholics in good standing.

Is Paris Burning? A Reflection on the Notre Dame Fire.

Was the Notre Dame fire and accident? Perhaps. But the on-going, deliberate attacks on Catholic churches in France fuels speculation (not unreasonably, I believe). Churches there are under siege by Muslim migrants. The trashing of Paris is well documented and across France acts of vandalism and violence are increasing. (See here and here and here for just three examples including the brutal murder of Fr. Jacques Hamel during morning Mass by two young Muslim men.)

Sunday Meditation: Love at First Sight for Beautiful Baby Girl!

Sometimes a story just tugs at your heart strings. This one did. Poor little unwanted baby girl finds a forever home with a kind and compassionate nurse. May we all bless the lives of others!

Did You Miss These Stories? Six worth reading and reflecting on! And, of course, praying about!

Cupich: a typical liberal who operates by a double
 standard that persecutes good and advances evil!
Cardinal Cupich and His Selective Justice for Accused Priests Are we surprised when liberal clerics persecute orthodox priests even when they are exonerated? No justice for them!

Ohio Heartbeat Bill Signed Libs go wild! The sky is falling. Doctors may leave the state! (What a tragedy if abortionists went elsewhere, right?) Companies may refuse to locate there. Pray today for Gov. Mike DeWine, the "strongest pro-life governor in the nation."

Bigotry on Parade: Two Airports Ban Chick-Fil-A because of the Owner's Political Views...

N.B. This photo comes from a satire site, not
Chik-fil-A. But it's too funny not to share!
...Is that constitutional?

How would you like it if you were a teacher and the school said you couldn't teach because you held the wrong political opinions even if you never voiced them in the classroom?

What if you were fired from a garage where you worked as a mechanic because your boss saw you out running on your own time in a MAGA hat.

Is it fair for a department store or a restaurant to check out its employees' political views as a litmus test for employment?

Of course not!

New York Introduces Bill to Break the Seal of Confession

The New York General Assembly's Standing Committee on Children and Families is considering a bill, AO6662, that would destroy the sacred bond between a confessor and the penitent. While the bill is limited to cases of child abuse, this is the camel's nose in the tent. Why should a priest not be required to report any serious breach of the law: murder, rape, embezzlement, etc.?

The Left is Okay with Bullying as Long as You Bully the "Right" People... know...those deplorables who cling to their bibles and their guns and refuse to bend the knee to the idols of gender totalitarianism, Islam, globalism, climate change...(You get the picture)

Aaron and Melissa Klein lost their family-run business because they refused to bake a cake for a same sex wedding. Keep in mind that gay bakers refusing service to Christians are a-okay.
