100 Days of Change Thursday, Apr 30 2009 


From the CCC Monday, Nov 10 2008 

While doing a lesson in the Great Adventure, A Journey through the Bible, I misread the CCC numbers I was supposed to look up, and instead of 767 and 768, I read 676 and 678.  I quote:

The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment.  The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.

There is much to ponder in those words, especially today when millions of people look to government and the new messiah to save them from themselves.

Now What? Wednesday, Nov 5 2008 

By now everybody has read all the pundits on what the election means for America.  What I have taken away from all this is that the Republicans lost because they have lost their conservative roots.  They have thought that the way to win is to move left.  They have compromised themselves out of existence, and if the choice is between full-fat liberal and liberal light, people will take the full-fat over the blander light.

There are going to be some hard battles ahead for the American family.  But the votes in the warm states of Arizona, Florida and California have proven that the traditional family still has a fighting chance in this country.  It is a miracle those amendments passed in Florida and California, considering how the rest of the votes went, but hey, we’ll take it.   It is particularly in this arena that our bishops need to stand firm, beginning NOW.  The 11th-hour efforts were greatly appreciated by this writer, but it was a bit too late to change the hearts of the people.  What we need is consistent teaching all the time, not just in times of crisis, and it is time for the bishops to excommunicate those who are defiant in their anti-life activities.  Merely denying Communion obviously has not been enough.  The people are disheartened.  Now that there is no election to contend with for a few years, I hope the bishops will get tough and remember that souls are at stake.  Many of them let the Bishop’s Conference speak for them rather than speaking out themselves.  Read about Bishop Vasa, a man who speaks for himself and says “I answer to the Holy See, I don’t answer to the USCCB.” 

And now it is time for the Republican party to shed some of its dead weight and start regrouping for 2012 with some real conservatives.  I hope they bring Sarah back.

A lighthearted (well, sort of) look at the campaign Monday, Oct 27 2008 

Admittedly, there isn’t much to laugh about this time around, but we can’t give up hope.

Obama’s Plan for change… Sunday, Oct 19 2008 

I got this from Barb who got it from the Stupid Fat Hobbit.  Great points and laughter too.  Imagine that!

By the way, please offer a prayer right now for Barb’s sister.  She broke her back when she fell from a ladder and could have a long recovery ahead.  Thanks.


Hooray for the Texas Bishops Friday, Oct 17 2008 

Finally, an unequivocal statement about this election from our hierarchy.  Thank you Bishop Kevin Farrell of Dallas and Bishop Kevin Vann of Fort Worth.  Makes me thankful to have a son at the University of Dallas.

Read about their straightforward teaching here.

There is so much information out there, it is always hard to decide what to share.  This  short video from Creative Minority Report warrants sharing.
