Guess Who's Leading Notre Dame's Delegation to the March for Life

What St. Nicholas would do to Fr. Jenkins!
...President John Jenkins, cheerleader for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion president in history!

Yup, Fr. Jenkins in his philacteries and bells is leading Notre Dame's delegation to the March for Life.

This is the same Fr. Jenkins who made a point of crucifying pro-lifers who protested Notre Dame honoring Obama.  And if that doesn't make his presence the hypocrisy of the year, he is also responsible for making sure that faculty and students can kill babies in the womb with abortifacient birth control provided in the school's health plan.

Thought for the Day: We Gotta Get Outta This Place

I got up this morning with this song in my head and haven't been able to get rid of it yet.

It occurred to me

Update on the Papal Award to Abortion Extremist Lilianne Ploumen

I did a post the other day, Does Pope Francis Have No Shame? The following is an update on that post and the Vatican award. And it isn't encouraging, sad to say. But who can be surprised when people like Fr. Thomas Rosica and Fr. James Martin are part of the PR team?

From OnePeter5: When Can We Have a Vatican Run by Grownups?

Over the past few days, we’ve been covering a story that managed, despite outrage fatigue across the Catholic world, to still shock and upset the faithful. The story is documented here and here, so I won’t bog this post down in details. Suffice it to say that Lilianne Ploumen — a rabidly pro-abortion Dutch politician so dedicated to her cause that she raised $300 million in just six months for “family planning” and abortion services around the world — nevertheless received the Order of St. Gregory the Great award from the Vatican. This award has been described as “the preferred award to acknowledge an individual’s particular meritorious service to the Church.” Moreover, it is a papalaward, which of course at least infers that the pope approves of its bestowal (even though it appears its functional distribution goes through the Vatican Secretariat of State.)

The Real Meaning of "Different Kinds of Priesthood"

Rev Dr Christina Beardsley
Transgender priest, Church of England
There is an article on One Peter Five by Maike Hickson titled Austrian Priest: Before Female Priests There Will Be Married Priests to which I posted a comment (using a pseudonym). My comment appears here below. 

Do married priests include same-sex married men since same-sex marriage is now legal? In other words, how would they be able to say that the married priesthood is only for men married to women thereby discriminating against men married to men? Or, if women become priests, women married to women?

Pet Peeve for the Day: Political Correctness

Unidos en Cristo / United in Christ cover
The book used at my parish.
I hate political correctness. I particularly hate political correctness when it invades the sanctuary. This morning at Mass my eyes kept going to the Mass booklets in the pew in front of me where they feature a large top headline IN SPANISH with the English underneath. Can English not even get top billing in our English-speaking country? Does anyone really think that if they have Mass booklets in Mexico (Anybody know?) they would list English first? Would they even include English? How many Americans are invading Mexico seeking sanctuary cities?

Then I came home and sat at my computer where I looked at the Catholic calendar distributed by the parish. You got it -- bilingual with all the months of the year and days of the week in Spanish first and all the feasts and solemnities, etc. in both languages each day in print so small it's unreadable. I took the calendar off the desk and threw it in the circular file. Then I looked through all the 2018 calendars I received in the mail and hung up one that has nice big blocks for writing my appointments and is all in English.

Blessed Laura Vicuna, Intercede for Marriage and for the Pope Who is Undermining It

Adulterous couples may not approach the altar for Communion. Blessed Laura offered her life for her mother, a desperate widow who became mistress to a lust-filled man in order to provide for her children. This little one knew that ONE MAY NEVER DO EVIL THAT GOOD MAY COME FROM IT.

Meditation for Sunday: What Are You Looking For?

Behold the Lamb of God.
John was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said, "behold, the Lamb of God." The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" -- which translated means Teacher --, "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come, and you will see." So they went and saw where Jesus was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four in the afternoon. John 1: 35-40

Two questions and an invitation.

Does Pope Francis Have No Shame?

Hmm...Let me think...which pro-abortion, gay-
activist  person should I honor next?

Another day, another scandal from the Vatican. (Sigh!)

When I think that the U.S. bishops have a policy denying honors to pro-abortionists, I wonder how long that can stand with such an example from the pope. He seems to hate traditional Catholics while he honors some of the most scandalous people on the planet: Emma Bonino, an Italian abortionist; pro-abort and gay marriage-hyping Hollywood celebrities; population control advocates Paul Ehrlich and John Bongaarts. Good grief! The list just goes on and on.

The January 17th Trump Awards for Most Corrupt and Biased Mainstream Media Losers

Ugliest Church of the Year Award
Orlando Diocese, 2001
This is going to be interesting. President Donald Trump will announce his Fake News Awards to "the most corrupt and biased Mainstream Media losers" on January 17th!

This must mean that the losers will be added to the ranks of other Trump foes with monikers he has bestowed upon them including “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio, “Liddle” Bob Corker, “Low Energy Jeb” Bush and “Crooked Hillary” Clinton.

The latest on his list is "Sloppy Steve" Bannon, President Trump's former chief strategist dismissed in the wake of a disputed book about the Trump administration. Bannon also has been accused of being "responsible for the majority of the first-year leaks coming out of the Trump administration."
