For Life and Sanity

 

Last Friday hundreds of thousands people marched for the most vulnerable among us, babies in womb. See time-lapse below:

“Love and sacrifice are closely linked, like the sun and the light. We cannot love without suffering and we cannot suffer without love.”

Saint Gianna Molla

Today’s mainstream media not only keeps ignoring this powerful witness of love and hope, but actively works to undermine* it.   Seeing all the young people with such great passion, courage,  and energy bring you hope that Sanity is still alive!

Best,

Caleb

In Flanders Fields

By John McCree

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

5 benefits from going to Confession (Repost)

1. Give us the moral certitude that your sins are forgiven (John 20:23).

2. It’s a great act of humility and obedience (we are following Christ commendments, 1 John 1:9) that allows us to reflect on our sins and affirm our desire to overcome them.

Note: Repentance is an act of the will, not a feeling. Thereby the act of “going to confession” in itself reflects an inner disposition of the will that seeks forgiveness.

3. Give us an opportunity to make reparations for our sins and help strenghten the Church by doing penance, (James 4:8-10,Daniel 9:3,1 Kings 21:27-29).

4. Give us a bountiful of Graces that helps us grow closer to Christ and weakens our attachments to sin.

5. It opens the door to receive Christ’s body, soul and divinity in the Holy Eucharist (1 Corinthians 11:27).

If you have been away from this awesome sacrament come in! Christ is waiting for you with an open heart, love and forgiveness!

Charles you will be missed.

Charles Krauthammer in his own words:

“Life and consciousness are the two great mysteries. Actually, their substrates are the inanimate. And how do you get from neurons shooting around in the brain to the thought that pops up in your head and mine? There’s something deeply mysterious about that. And if you’re not struck by the mystery, I think you haven’t thought about it”.

“I was a Great Society liberal on domestic issues. People ask me, ‘How do you go from Walter Mondale to Fox News?’ The answer is, ‘I was young once.’ End of answer”.

“Chess: It’s like alcohol. It’s a drug. I have to control it, or it could overwhelm me. I have a regular Monday night game at my home, and I do play a little online”.

“Science has everything to say about what is possible. Science has nothing to say about what is permissible”.

“There is a mystique about psychiatry that people think that you have some kind of a magical lens, you know, Superman’s X-ray vision into the soul. One of the reasons I left psychiatry is that I didn’t believe that”.

“Under our constitutional system, the executive executes the laws that Congress has passed. It should not be executing laws that Congress has rejected”.

“When a party is in opposition, it opposes. That’s its job. But when it comes to power, it must govern. Easy rhetoric is over, the press of reality becomes irresistible. By necessity, it adopts some of the policies it had once denounced. And a new national consensus is born”

“I’m a former Red Sox fan, now fully rehabilitated”.


“The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” 

Numbers 6:24-26

-God Bless you Charles
