I spoke to Kevin Dunn one of the featured speakers at the 2019 Catholic Men's Conference at Assumption College. His work fighting against assisted suicide is just as critical in the service of live as the fight against abortion.
One of the greatest things about the love of God is the time it gives you. Now I'm not referring to the time of silent prayer, or the times of reflection or even the time before the blessed sacrament that we talked about yesterday. I'm talking about the fact that we are given our entire … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 6th Thursday in Lent: There’s Still Time
There is an old story that Shemp Howard used to tell about Catholic Mass. He was attending mass for the 1st time (Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp were all Jewish) for the funeral of a friend and when Mass was over he commented that all the standing, sitting and kneeling was too much exercise for … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 6th Wednesday in Lent: Be Still
I spoke to Dave Dionisi of Children of Compassion about his group which educates orphans in Africa at the 2019 Catholic Men's Conference at Assumption College in Worcester MA. This is again the type of works that seem to fly under the media but it's the type of work that the devout have done for … Continue reading Dave Dionisi of Children of Compassion CMC 2019
Yesterday we talked about hidden treasures in the faith today I'd like to talk about some treasures that are not hidden but might not be recognized for what they are. At mass this week there was an inordinate amount of background noise from a plethora of young children under five all making noise at once … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Tuesday in Lent: Unhidden Treasures
We talked a bit about some of the false memes concerning the church that are advanced by those who oppose it, The other side of that coin are things done in the name of the church that get ignored. Two examples: In Worcester MA there is a place called Visitation House that takes in homeless … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Monday in Lent: Hidden Treasures
One of the regular lies of the pro-death left is that pro-life people don't care about children and mothers once a child is born. For 15 years Visitation House puts the lie to this nonsense. Their site is here from the front page: Are you pregnant? Considering an abortion alternative? Need a caring home to … Continue reading Visitation House 15th Anniversary Brunch June 2nd Catholic Men’s Conference 2019
The movie unplanned is a movie full of emotion that generates many feelings among those who view it. For myself two things came instantly to mind. The first I've already written about, namely the movie being a modern version of the China Syndrome except based on fact rather than fiction. The second is more profound … Continue reading Unplanned Movie Featuring Abby Johnson as Saul
Yesterday I attended the 19th annual Catholic Men's conference in Worcester for WQPH 89.3 Radio. It is an event I attend regularly for the station but all week leading up to it my heart wasn't in it. it had been a long week at work. The event meant getting up very early and a bit … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Sunday of Lent: The Payoff
There has been a lot of effort by a lot of people to keep you from seeing the movie "Unplanned". Networks have refused ads, celebs have attacked the film, there have been twitter shenanigans and to the surprise of nobody the mainstream media's reviews of the movie "Unplanned" are full of dismissive critique with the … Continue reading Unplanned Abortion’s “The China Syndrome”
One of the hardest things about Christianity, at least to me can be the highs and the lows. The highs when you see the works of God all around you and are inspired to do his will and the lows when it appears all trace of God has disappeared from the world around you and … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Saturday of Lent Highs an Lows
Yesterday we talked about the myth or relativism and today I want to talk about a phrase that is my Pastor's favorite. Seeing yourself in the Light of Truth. One of the things about truth is that it's not relative. (It's no coincidence that God's name is I AM) and one of the great facts … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Friday of Lent: The Light of Truth.
Over at Robert Stacy McCain's site in a piece about as he puts it "the cult of self esteem" links to a talk where a student questions a lectioner asking why we need a book to tell us what to do. Do you think without it we will all start raping and killing each other. … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Thursday of Lent. Locks and Passwords.
One of the hardest things about doing the Lenten Reflections series is that it's not a "planned" series in that I had a set of ideas ready to roll. So yesterday around noon after writing two pieces about the Joe Biden (that will run later today and tomorrow) went downstairs commenting to DaWife that I … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 5th Wednesday of Lent: Yet!
One of the oldest phony myths about the Catholic Church is the idea that the church actively discouraged the reading of the bible and thus kept them securely fastened by chains in churches. The myth here is not the securing of a bible, but the REASON for it. A while back there was a story … Continue reading Lenten Reflections 4th Tuesday of Lent The Price of Scripture
