I always ask...because folks the "train has left the station". I was told this by a nun in this same parish. I've seen it, been touched by it (my children in their CCD program), and after much prayer and sacrifice we attempted to bring this to the attention of the Pastor. It was also quite costly-emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Under the Patient First program, there is no up-front charge for the VeriMed microchip. Patients instead pay a fee of $9.95 per month for a subscription to VeriMed's Patient Registry. Doctors use the registry to access the patients' medical information.

We continue to work hard and pray hard!
However, Mr Logan is concerned that the books' setting in the world of witchcraft could be detrimental to any Christian message.
"The Potter epic encourages kids to be curious in an area that God forbids," he said. "It is also an encouragement to the vulnerable and under-age to learn more of paganism and the occult, which have a track record of emotional and spiritual damage."

One Catholic media outlet reported after Saile's appointment was announced that she "was a 2006 dinner-party speaker" for WIN, "a group dedicated to empowering pro-choice women.
"The dinner in question, she told Catholic News Service Sept. 18, involved about seven women at a private home for a discussion of faith and politics."The issue of abortion was raised," Saile said, "and I challenged people that it was not mutually exclusive to be socially progressive on issues like health care, poverty and housing and to be pro-life."
The train continues down the track....woooowwooooo! = (
Private affair or not that's not the issue. Shall we revisit what the problem is? Let's read together...shall we..?!
So they were just sitting around like an Oprah event sharing their thoughts and ideas? Didn't they do that already by planning this event?
"WIN women meet for networking events, resume swaps, happy hours, and panel discussions—all geared towards mentoring and helping women along the road to success. WIN women also volunteer on political campaigns, at nonprofit organizations, and on various event committees through WIN."
Let's not forget what the purpose is of this group--to NETWORK with like minded women! I don't care what they "talked" about...just her affiliation is MAIN issue!
"They are a unique opportunity to contribute to, learn from, and network with accomplished and up-and-coming women who share your passions—all while helping each other along the road to success."
I want some PEACE & JUSTICE NOW!

Many of the "gods" and goddesses" of this pre-Christian worldview promoted lifestyles of selfish excess, homosexual practices, and hedonism masquerading as freedom. The myths concerning them had them acting in much the same way. Their lies have simply been reintroduced today, only the myths and statues are different. they still purport to be "progressive" when, in reality, they are regressive.

It's hard to feel good sitting in the pew on Sundays, listening to sermons you don't necessarily agree with. It's daunting to wonder if you will go to hell because you know you aren't following all the rules and don't support some of your church's basic beliefs, like not allowing priests and nuns to marry. While it's easy to forego meat on Fridays during Lent, it isn't so easy foregoing modern birth control methods the Catholic Church forbids.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with with confidence, I fly to you, O virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
