When I last visited this site it wasn't so 'international'...hmmm?!) The Sisters of Mercy use TNS ( though they 'don't endorse') (see background article ***listed below) and mind you - what do the Sisters of Mercy (RSM) do? Answer: Why they're involved in our schools and hospitals....Mercy Sponsored Hospitals (pretty long list huh?). The Natural Step U.S. - ***their background -article- *make sure you see the section:The Dream. More interesting background-another article, The Oregon Natural Step Network - Oregon list of members.

Christ came to cure our wounds; but since all do not search for the remedy, therefore, He cures those who are willing; He does not force the unwilling. God, for His part, really wills us to be save; otherwise, it would be impossible for us to obtain health and eternal life.
-- St. Alphonsus Liguori

But even in the midst of such a crisis, we find consolation: “Behold, I make all things new!” (Apoc. 21:5). All the historical triumphs against error won by the martyrs and confessors will be renewed in grand style. The victories of the devil and his antichrists continue to mount, but the Triumph of the divine Babe will be all the sweeter because of it. It will mark the victory of our Lord, His Church, and His Vicar. What’s more, to the eternal confusion of Antichrist and Satan, Christ’s Triumph will be the Triumph of His Mother, the Woman who will crush the head of the ancient serpent!
And that should give us all a Merry Christmas.

I'm so glad someone else picked up on this. I happened across this part (while picking up my house-I don't watch it) and I was fussing at Barbara...(at the tv)..."So what's your problem Barbara...it's Christmas; you're acknowledging it by your topic of conversation. Come on Barbara....please." And thanks to this reporter for the address, Ms. Walters -you're going to get a Christmas card...from "moi".
I took great offense to her comments:
“First of all, let me show you the cover of the White House, which is nice and bland…So that’s pleasant enough. This is what interested me, that it is a religious Christmas card. Usually in the past when I have received a Christmas card, it’s been ‘happy holiday’s’ and so on- And this says:
“‘You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You gave life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.’
“That’s from Nehemiah in the Old Testament. I don’t remember— and I’m sure people will remind me—getting a religious card. Now does this also go to agnostics and atheists and Muslims and –”

Our Lady of Guadalupe, mystical rose, intercede for the Church, protect the holy Father, help all who invoke thee in their necessities. Since thou art the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from thy most holy Son the grace of a firm faith and a sure hope amid the bitterness of life,as well as an ardent love and the precious gift of final perseverance.
'V/T' and prayers of thanks to/for Fr. Mark: Mary Rose Up in Haste in Those Days
The Battleground of the Heart
Do not let the grace of the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe pass without changing you. Even the loftiest mystical graces are useless if they leave us unrepentant and unchanged. Pray the humble prayer of the Rosary, not sparingly, but continuously, at every free moment. It decapitates pride. It extinguishes lust, envy, covetousness, possessiveness, and greed. It pulls up the seven capital sins by their roots. The great cosmic battle between the Woman and the Dragon is not fought in the fantasies of movie screens. It is fought on the battleground of human hearts, one heart at a time.
Fr. Euteneuer asks Bishops to Fire Scandalous Movie Reviewer (my comment)
"There seems to be a decades-old pattern of embarrassment on the part of some USCCB subordinates and other lay officials when it comes to the teachings of the Catholic Church. All too often these scandals involve matters of homosexuality. In 1987 we had the document 'The Many Faces of AIDS' which was problematic on the use of condoms, then in 1997 the scandalous document 'Always our Children' so distorted Catholic teaching that it had to be rewritten after its release."
Father Euteneuer continued, "Then in December, 2005, Forbes's review of Brokeback Mountain with its original 'L' rating for 'Limited' had to be corrected and reclassified as 'O' for 'Morally Objectionable.' The bishops have been embarrassed by their staff like clockwork for almost 20 years. Now, in December 2007, the bishops have had to withdraw Forbes's review of The Golden Compass from CNS after publication. (you will be redirected to the removal notice) After major scandals involving homosexual clergy, do we really need their movie reviewer now tiptoeing around hostile atheism?
"Let Harry Forbes be the sign that the bishops can break the cycle of subtle and overt dissent among their subordinates. They should show him the door and require all other employees to take an Oath of Fidelity. That will separate the wheat from the chaff," concluded Fr. Euteneuer.

Creating crises and fixing them....hmmm!? Gotta have a 'global solution' with someone promoting, enabling, mediating,...need I say more?
- Global Warming
- Oil shortage
- AIDS/Health Issues
- Social Issues
- Trade Issues
And don't forget to read this one too (another pdf) "TACKLING THE DARK SIDE OF GLOBALIZATION: WHY ONLY A UNITED EUROPE CAN PROJECT AND PROTECT ITS INTERESTS"
"...founded our project (EU): solid laws and institutions, the tireless pursuit of consensus and a spirit of compromise. We should bear this in mind as we develop Europe's global role." (How to disrupt consensus)
Their 'glue'---guess what that is?....'energy and climate change'--there ya' go!
Notice the use of this term 'dark side' in both docs!
That's ok...we know who wins IN THE END!
That's right let's get it ALL out INTO THE LIGHT!On the eve of the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe - Oh, Dearest, most loving, MOMMA take this child of GOD and all those he comes in contact - and turn all their thoughts TO YOU - as their mother and of course lead them ever so gently to YOUR SON-OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
'They' 'think' the 'train's left the station'; I got news for them....it's on the WRONG TRACKS!
Thank and Praise YOU FATHER, Thank and Praise YOU JESUS, Thank and Praise YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!
What exciting times we live in...YEA GOD!

This is where the technology is entering the second generation of utility. Popular for tracking pets, the RFID is slowly creeping over to humans who have little
choice: children, Alzheimer's patients, employees.
"The arguments that are winning these days involve safety, efficiency and productivity," said Ian Kerr, Canada research chair in ethics, law and technology at the University of Ottawa law faculty. "The challenge in this era is to employ this kind of technology in a way that isn't dehumanizing."

Question: What about the Catholic U.S. citizens without healthcare?
Using the poor angels in coloring books to teach children this?! When will it ever end?! GOD HELP US!
In one page of the coloring book — for students in the first through fifth grades — a smiling angel tells an altar boy who is putting on a vestment: “For safety’s sake, a child and an adult shouldn’t be alone in a closed room together. If a child and an adult happen to be alone, someone should know where they are and the door should be open or have a big window in it.”
EXACTLY...And now we (adults) have placed the burden on children to react to these situations and make a correction!!!! They're not old enough to do this! It's our job NOT theirs! We're the adults!
In an interview today, Dr. Eli H. Newberger, a pediatrician at Harvard Medical School and a leading expert on child sexual abuse, warned in an interview that young children may misinterpret well-intended messages.
“With regard to kids, any such simple message as, ‘Don’t be alone with an adult in the room,’ is susceptible to multiple interpretations children are going to place on it given their age, their previous experience with caring adults and with the person and the medium from whom the message comes,” he said.

Pay attention to what's happening in our world...most especially in entertainment. When it would be so easy to say during this beginning of our holiday season..."Come on kids lets go see a movie...what movie do you want to see?" Please investigate what's out there and notice how it's being marketed to your children and you! Notice the marketing scheme taking place through kid meals, toys, books....etc.
Have you seen the movie trailer of "The Golden Compass"? Have you heard the dialog? 'They' use this title of a dark villain- "institutional villain, the Magisterium" - as a key role to defeat! Do you get that? Magisterium...doesn't take an anvil to fall outta the sky and hit me over the head to understand what's going on! But, see, this is the hook....most Catholics have been poorly catechised and don't know the connection or the meaning of Magisterium...and that's how the enemy works. HELLO!
Please don't HELP him! Learn about your faith. Tradition and Living Magisterium
It's ALL right here on the internet and available for all to be fed (and protected). When you feed your soul you protect yourself from the weaknesses/openings that the enemy wants to use to manipulate, monopolize, and capitalize on for his advantage.

VeriChip is trying to fix the Verimed problems. It continues to sign up more hospitals and give them scanners to read the implanted chips. It plans a consumer advertising campaign in parts of Massachusetts, Florida and New Jersey where many of the 900 hospitals equipped with scanners are in the hopes more people will buy the chips. There is a chance that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey might cover the implantable chips. Finally, VeriChip is negotiating with Applied Digital, its Florida parent, on reducing debt and its control position below 50 per cent.

From the time of England’s break from Rome in the 16th century, the British Monarch has been the titular head of the church, heading an ecclesiastical structure entirely separate from the pope-centered Roman Catholicism that has dominated continental history. The Act of Settlement, passed in 1701 and still in effect, preserves this independence by requiring that the person assuming the throne be Anglican and specifically excluding a Catholic or anyone who has married a Catholic. The present queen, when she was crowned in 1953, swore an oath “to maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed religion established by law.”
Upholding this oath factors heavily in Britain’s independence from Europe because, since the pope claims authority over all Roman Catholics, a Catholic British monarch would owe primary allegiance to Rome over and above that owed the British crown.
The Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC):
From its beginning, the tac has had a spiritual affinity with Roman Catholics. Shortly after it formed, it began informal consultations with the Vatican on how to gain formal recognition as part of the Catholic Church. The primate of the group, Archbishop John Hepworth, has said, “We have no doctrinal difference with Rome.”
This is quite a stunning statement coming from an Anglican archbishop. Set aside the many smaller differences the Protestant Reformed religion traditionally has with Roman Catholicism, and still there remains a very large elephant in the middle of the room: government.
Authority within the Roman Catholic Church, by stark contrast, emanates from one man, traditionally called “the Vicar of Christ,” the one and only “Successor of the Prince of the Apostles”—the pope.
The tac is willing to swallow that pill. Archbishop Hepworth says, “Unity with Peter is a biblical imperative,” referring to the pope’s claim to be the rightful successor to the Apostle Peter. “What is important, and we are having to learn as a community,” he says, “is to ask not what we think, but what the church says, and five centuries of bad habits are going to die hard.”
For half a century, Herbert W. Armstrong served as editor in chief of what was, during its apex in the 1980s, the world’s most popular newsmagazine, the Plain Truth. Its pages often prophesied of an event that for decades many considered an impossibility—the unification of Protestants with their Roman Catholic mother church. Mr. Armstrong foretold the event as far back as 1934, the year the magazine began.
A sample, from the October 1961 Plain Truth edition: “The pope will step in as the supreme unifying authority—the only one that can finally unite the differing nations of Europe. …Europe will go Roman Catholic! Protestantism will be absorbed into the ‘mother’ church—and totally abolished.”
It is because of statements such as these that the Trumpet, which follows the Plain Truth’s pattern of Bible-based news analysis, has closely watched efforts by religious leaders to bring Protestant churches back into communion with the Vatican. These latest moves among Anglicans fit the mold in an astonishing way.

Marcus' guests at 'the round table' are former atheists - it should be a very informative show.
Archbishop Ranjith said that, in these dissents, “there hide, on the one hand, ideological prejudices and, on the other hand, pride, which is one of the most serious sins.”
“The bishops, in particular, have sworn fidelity to the pontiff; may they be coherent and faithful to their commitment,” he said.

There is a profound Catholic significance in celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday on a Thursday, the day of the Eucharist. The Gospel we heard draws us into the Cenacle; liturgically, today is not merely Thanksgiving Day, the last Thursday of November. It becomes for us Holy Thursday. It is the hour of Christ’s Mystical Supper with His disciples. Christ is at table and we are there with Him.
Our Lord speaks to us; He gives us the mysteries of His Body and Blood. He calls us to fruitfulness, to the fruitfulness of sacrificial love. Thanksgiving and fruitfulness are inseparably bound up. Those who are thankful will be fruitful. Those who are fruitful will be thankful. “I chose you,” says Jesus, “and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide” (Jn 15:16).

Niceness, at least as it is normally conceived, seeks to avoid pain at all costs. It not only avoids pain, but even the hint of discomfort. Niceness is the highest moral expression of bourgeois society, a society that sees comfort and ease as the highest goods. And modern society is bourgeois in the highest degree. It is unguent-soaked, padded, temperature-controlled, luxuriant, tidy, well-groomed; it is mediocre par excellence. It is no surprise, then, that modern society values niceness so highly. To be nice is to be non-judgmental, pliant, stroking, and affirming. It allows for no negativity, for negativity is uncomfortable.

Prayer of Reparation
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore thee profoundly. I offer thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of thee the conversion of poor sinners.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, fountain of eternal life, Your Heart is a glowing furnace of Love. You are my refuge and my sanctuary. O my adorable and loving Savior, consume my heart with the burning fire with which Yours is aflamed. Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from Your love. Let my heart be united with Yours. Let my will be conformed to Yours in all things. May Your Will be the rule of all my desires and actions. Amen. Saint Gertrude
"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen."
Our Lord told St. Gertrude that the following prayer would release 1000 souls from purgatory each time it is said. The prayer was extended to include living sinners as well.
