Now is the time for serious and intense prayer for our country and its leaders. Pray for Judge Gorsuch as he faces Senate hearings and, while you're at it, why not send him a note telling him you are praying for him. The only address I've been able to find for him is for the 10 Circuit Court of Appeals 1823 Stout St, Denver, CO 80257. I trust that if you write c/o that address, he'll get it. If anyone has his mailing address in Colorado please post it. I haven't been able to find it.
Planned Parenthood: "We specialize in abortions."... "We only do ultrasounds if you're terminating."
That was fun,
now when's dinner?

- There's no doubt that the devil would love to infiltrate the Catholic Church and turn her into the whore of Babylon.
- It's also true that Christ is the head of the Church and the gates of hell will never prevail against her.
- And it's a fact that Cardinal Danneels publicly admitted being part of a "Mafia"described as St. Gall's that held secret meetings in Switzerland to bring about the election of Jorge Bergoglio.

|Is the statute of limitations up yet?|
The pope strongly condemns sex abuse in his statements, but, at least in some cases, is slow or refuses to act even when civil authorities have found priests guilty of sex abuse. Pray for the victims whose lives are devastated by the murder of trust. Pray for the guilty who massacre innocence.

In view of REAL statements from liberals about blowing up the White House and killing President Trump, this is more than distasteful. It sounds like provocation. Liberalism is an evil philosophy where the end justifies the means. These people hate, not only Trump, but anyone who embraces the culture of life. Pray for them and then fight everything they stand for! You can start by boycotting specific companies like Southwest Airlines and Target -- American Eagle too who proudly supported the Women's March for abortion.

In the 2013 PBS series “Pioneers of Television: Funny Ladies,” Moore explained that despite her TV character’s image on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” as a never-married working woman who became a feminist icon, she turned down Gloria Steinem’s invitation to join the feminist movement.
True social justice from a Catholic perspective begins with the society of the family and recognizes other societies within the state that precede the state and often do things better than the state. Anthony Esolen puts it well:

If Lindsay becomes a first wife I hope she doesn't have a meltdown when her husband takes a second, third or fourth one. She will need to behave so as not to get stoned to death, and if she wants to convert back to Christianity she can expect to literally lose her head.
Let's pray for Lindsay before it's too late.
The picture accompanying the article shows a limo on fire. (Below) I read later that the owner of the limo business was a Muslim who was not a Trump supporter. Why bother to find out if your damaging the business of an opponent or a supporter when you're out to commit mayhem? Hey, it was a limo and part of the Democrat propaganda is that anybody who looks more affluent than you (unless it's rich, liberal politicians like Bill and Hillary Clinton or the rich Hollywood elitists like the disgusting crude-talking celebrities at the women's march) deserves to be punished. "You didn't build that!" One day this type of behavior is going to bite the folks who foment it. Evil always ends up consuming its own. Remember Robespierre and a modern feminist example, Laura Kipnis. Robespierre was fed to the guillotine. All Laura got was a progressive inquisition, but it was a taste of the political correctness whip used against so many conservatives.

Let's pray Trump starts building the wall asap! No nation can survive the type of invasion we've been experiencing without becoming a different country, whether it's an Islamic caliphate or a Banana Republic.
Of course, we want to continue having legal immigration -- controlled immigration. Let in the Christians who are true refugees from ISIS. Keep out the Muslims whose "religion" is a also political system inimical to ours.
Build the wall, Mr. President.

Many do get out and their stories are troubling. There is a website specifically for parents of children who have been recruited into this organization from college campuses. It is the Opus Dei Awareness Network, or ODAN. It is a support group for parents who believe their children have been brainwashed and are actually under the influence of a sect or cult inside the Church.

God bless the USA! Patriotism is back. And let's pray that one of Trump's accomplishments is doing right by our vets who spent the last eight years being disrespected, denied medical treatment, and having benefits cut. The suicide rate among young vets is alarming and action must be taken to provide them the help they need.
|Is this where Chris Matthews was raised?|
His rude comment said nothing about Trump, but said volumes about Matthews who is a discourteous, ill-mannered clod who apparently never had a mother to teach him basic good manners. Can you imagine Brit Hume or Tucker Carlson or Laura Ingraham referring to President Obama as "THAT GUY?"

These ladies make me laugh. Wouldn't it be fun to go out with them to the local brewery. Hey, ladies, the brews are on me! We can all drink to Donald Trump and say a few prayers for him as well and for the conversion of the liberal cabal who can take credit for the violent protests in D.C. today.
|It's okay to mention God again!|
Well..how an election result can change things. How many Democrats are boycotting the inauguration? How many liberals are calling for, not only protests, but efforts to shut down bridges and streets like they did during the campaign.
|The "Black Madonna"|
The "Black Madonna" was first crowned on her birthday, September 8th, in 1717. What a testament to Poland that they continue to embrace the great Mother of God not only in their churches, but in their public life!
2017 embraces these important anniversaries. What a great year for Catholics and others wise enough to honor Jesus' Mother. Have you made the Five First Saturdays? This is the perfect year to do it! God is never outdone in generosity. If you honor His Mother He will reward you with many graces. Guaranteed!

What do you want to bet this guy has never even read the Constitution of the United States! Other reports said he started shouting, "Ow, it's hot, it's hot...." before he threw himself on the ground and put the fire out. Duh!
I'm glad he didn't do himself any permanent damage, but I'd say a psych evaluation is in order. Liberalism is a philosophy that makes people crazy. This guy is just the tip of the iceberg...or maybe the smoke off the bonfire?

|This is a Catholic family too.|
Duddy-Burke concluded, “Many Catholic families still find themselves facing conflicts between what their Church teaches and what they know of their LGBT children in loving relationships. They know that their gay kids’ commitments are just as real, deep and loving as those of their straight kids. Yet they are taught that this commitment should not be honored. That causes real difficulties for families, for homeless and troubled LGBT youth, and for all LGBT people seeking to lead lives of equality and integrity. These are the gay issues that the Pope should be addressing. We in DignityUSA and many other Catholics will be carrying this message to the Pope and other Church leaders this year, as we prepare for the World Meeting of Families and the conclusion of the Synod on the Family in the fall.”

Ads in two dozen cities seek paid inaugural disruptors
Secret Service prepares for "unprecedented threats" at inauguration
And the latest video from Project Veritas where the Bolsheviks talk about shutting down the bridges and highways into the city, engaging in "throat punching" against "the Nazis," and chaining the Metro trains to keep them from moving. Pray for our poor country.
|Liberals couldn't care less about|
Tonya Reeves killed by Planned
Parenthood in a botched abortion.
How come liberals are "pro-choice" to justify killing innocent unborn babies but are "anti-choice" about capital punishment which involves executing guilty murderers, even serial killers.
How come it's not okay for a white actor, Joseph Fiennes to portray a black celebrity (who spent buckets of money making himself look white), but it's okay for Broadway to portray our white Founding Fathers (Hamilton) with an all black cast and send out a casting call for the road show saying no whites need apply? Are whites "crackers" banned from the black-only lunch counter?

Who's behind Disrupt J20? How much money is going into planning illegal behavior like what you see in this video from Project Veritas? As a past participant in Operation Rescue, I've blocked doors of abortion mills to try to save babies' lives. That is consistent with the principle that one can break a minor law to save life or property. And, in fact, in Fairfax County a judge found us innocent on that principle back in the 1970s after a sit-in at the Northern Virginia Womens' Medical Center (a misnomer if there ever was one since it was nothing but a killing center).
I love that magazine! Even when I'm reading an issue that's been hanging around for months, I find great food for thought. I'm catching up with the October issue (lots of pre-election commentary) which was buried on my desk.
In an article by Chilton Williamson I found this spot-on description of modern liberalism:

|Kill the babies to save the trees!|
I read a lot of news in the English papers because their reporters have no ax to grind and I think the news is more accurate. Articles I've read in the American press say Bocelli was worried about his fans' backlash, but the English papers are reporting he received death threats. In view of all the threats coming from liberal land and their campaign violence and dirty tricks, I believe it. I'm only sorry Bocelli didn't have the courage to hang in. But isn't it interesting that the kind and tolerant bunch who won't let a baker refuse to bake a wedding cake for a gay "marriage" are fine with doing everything they can to prevent any famous entertainers from performing at the inauguration. Hey, I think Trump should skip the rich and famous elitists and look for great talent among the little guys. Wouldn't that be refreshing?

|The armies of Middle Earth approach Mordor. |
Everyone on the battlefield still alive, get up and fight!
The philosopher George Santayana once said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." In this 2009 interview with Catholic Family News, Randy Engel spotlighted the sexual revolution and the rise of the homosexual cabal and the powers behind it. Their success to the point that public schools are teaching children how to fornicate and engage in homosexual perversion is shocking, especially in view of the small number of homosexuals. It makes complete sense, however, when you see it as a strategy in the population control tool box.
To fight effectively it's important to understand how a thing came about. Tolkein teaches us that principle in The Lord of the Rings. St. Ignatius of Loyola in his meditation on the Two Standards shows us how to fight. We are called to be Christ's soldiers in the Church Militant. Fast and pray. Debasement of our sexual powers and the attack on the family may be the "one ring that rules them all!" Our Lady of Fatima chose three little "hobbit" children from the Shire of Fatima to fight the evil. Are we listening to her message? 2017 is an important year in this battle with the 100th anniversary of her apparition. Answer her call.
|What would Padre Pio say? What would JESUS say?|
The bishops have essentially annulled the doctrine on the indissolubility of marriage and they did it in the name of Amoris Laetitia. NOW will the pope respond to the dubia?

The Population Bomb, by Paul Ehrlich was published in 1968 the year I graduated from Trinity College (which was already becoming an enemy to the faith). I read it. Wow!
What a piece of horror fiction! A baby was on the cover of the book inside a bomb with a lit fuse. You know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words. Clearly, babies were the enemies of the earth.
It would have been more accurate to have a black baby inside the bomb because people like Ehrlich and his liberal friends always had their sights on the third world, but that wouldn't have been politically correct and might wake people up to what was really going on. After all, as Margaret Sanger said, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Ditto today where blacks like Faye Wattleton, who was the face of Planned Parenthood from 1978 until 1992, promote the murder of black children.

The results of Johnson's policies were disastrous. Daniel Patrick Moynihan pointed out the problems in 1965 and rightly said efforts needed to be made to strengthen the black family. Johnson did just the opposite (He wasn't the least bit interested in blacks except as voters.), booting out fathers and providing a lucrative lifestyle even for teenage girls who wanted out from under their mothers' thumbs.
On the other hand, one of Richard Rohr's books keeps popping up and I would hate to mislead someone into thinking Fr. Rohr is a good source for anything except analyzing a heretic. I haven't asked CatholicAdNet whether I have any control over the pop-ups on the site. Assuming I do, I will ask them not to advertise Richard Rohr on my site or anything from St. Anthony Messenger. And God forbid that the National Catholic Reporter should pop up, but they haven't yet as far as I've noticed. Most of the sites seem to be fine.
That said, even so-called Catholic groups can be misleading these days, so Catholics need to be vigilant and know who is to be trusted and who is not. So keep an eye on the ads, click on the good ones if you are so inclined, and leave Richard Rohr to the heretics and dissenters.

Celebrate the Epiphany, A Reminder of the Lord's Call to the Gentiles, Our Predecessors in the Faith
What are the requirements for first Saturday devotion? Go to Confession and attend Mass with the specific intention of making reparation for sins against Our Lady. Pray the rosary and spend fifteen extra minutes meditating on one of the mysteries of the rosary. You can go to Confession about eight days before or after the first Saturday as long as you are in the state of grace when you receive Communion.

But I also want to know Christ's close friends better, more than as the go-to helpers to find lost objects (St. Anthony) or pray for friends with special needs (e.g., St. Gerard Majella for women in childbirth) or for the survival of our bee colonies (St. Ambrose and St. Valentine). I want to get to know at least a few of the saints more intimately especially Mary.

|What will happen to the flock in 2017?|
How are we to respond? In times of confusion and crisis Catholics must cling to the doctrine promulgated by Holy Mother Church for two millennia. Let me suggest a good starting place.
