This is Scary!

Tom Cruise to Run United Artists
The development is a major comeback for Cruise and Wagner. They were unceremoniously dumped in August from their 14-year producing deal at Paramount Studios.

Does this mean Scientology will totally dominate films out of Hollywood? Gosh...does this tell me there are strong connections in this industry?

The Press and Scientology

The Times continues to examine Scientology critically. A story by Rachel Abramowitz and Chris Lee about the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes relationship noted
that critics call Scientology a cult that uses mind-control techniques. The Times also noted the up-tick in Cruise promoting Scientology as well as the servile press reaction. When journalists recently set out to interview Cruise they were invited to long tours through different Scientology centers. The paper noted that "Access Hollywood" gave the actor a "hefty chunk of time to enthuse about his religion and spout off about a Scientology bête noire, the evils of psychiatry."

Israel May Scrap Planned Gay Pride March

A week before a planned gay pride parade in Jerusalem, the city's religious Jews are warning of possible violence and a government minister said the march might have to be scrapped to keep the peace in the holy city.


"This march is a ruthless assault on traditional Jewish values and the sanctity of Jerusalem," said Mina Fenton, an Orthodox member of Jerusalem's City Council who has led the fight against the parade. More than 100,000 people will attend a counterdemonstration on the day of the march should it be allowed to go ahead, she said, and violence was a possibility.

Please Lord...may this be totally stopped!

Lord have Mercy!

Abortion records reveal cases of suspected child rape, incest

Attorney General Phil Kline had waged a months-long courtroom battle against the abortion industry, which sought to keep the 90 case records concealed. But the records now are being reviewed by investigators after being forwarded to Kline from a district court judge who edited them to hide the identities of the women involved.

But he noted that state records confirm in 2003 alone, 78 girls under the age of 15 had abortions in Kansas. By law, that amounts to 78 cases of sexual assault on a child, or worse.

Kline's pursuit of the records began shortly after he was elected in 2002, and he noticed a peculiarity of laws in most states and jurisdictions.

"Nobody has been willing to enforce the abortion laws against Planned Parenthood," he told WND during a recent interview. And some of the situations just screamed for attention.

For example, when there are abortions performed on children as young as 10, by law and by definition there has been a sexual assault on a child. In Kansas a person under 16 legally cannot consent to sex, and abortions cannot be performed past 22 weeks. However, those cases simply weren't being reported, he said, even though state law requires officials who are in a position to know the circumstances to report such crimes.

Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory
Eternal Father, I offer You the Most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Amen.

Happy All Saints Day!

Virtue and holiness. We are ALL called! Even when we fall...we have GOT to get back up, just as the saints did before us. Don't let the sins of others keep you from staying close to JESUS! Know that! Breathe this! Believe this! Do not let any one keep you from HIM in HIS PRECIOUS BODY AND BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY! The reason for the types of behavior we have witnessed and continue to witness every day stems from the denial of sin and the thought or belief of "Non serviam". Each and every one of us have to get past that and remember to pick up the cross and carry it the rest of the way...not just for ourselves but for the whole world! And GOD knows each of us can (I do) ask for the grace-daily- to do this. Honor that grace and move forward keeping your eyes on HIM! HE'LL always HONOR that action too!
Go to the "Litaniæ sanctorum"- "To download an mp3 of this litany prayed in Latin, right click here and choose "Save Target As." 1 "
One more thing...You can obtain a PLENARY INDULGENCE applicable to the Souls in Purgatory, the 1st to the 8th of November every year!!

Here is the indulgence:

What happened in S.F. in 2003?

"Switch Hitters Ball"

When? Saturday June 21, 2003 6:00 - 11:00
Where? Ellard Hall, Most Holy Redeemer Parish 100 Diamond St. at 18th St.
How much? Tickets: $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

San Francisco Gay Softball League

Does anyone know who was pastor in 2003? And more to the point who was the Archbishop?

More on the S.F. "Busted Bingo"

If it weren't enough that this was almost going to take more horrendous item found-according to this event announcement--Fr. Meriwether's parish MHR benefited from the first "Bingo" event: "Our first beneficiary will be the Sisters' Grant Fund and Ellard Hall."

Bingo bust: The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco

Scroll down...

The infamous devotees in drag have been calling out the numbers at the church's Ellard Hall for the last two months, but when church higher-ups learned of the game, they pulled the plug. Maybe it was the Sisters' past spats with the church over their annual Easter bash. Or maybe the emcee who was supposed to work bingo that night -- "Peaches Christ" -- was just too much. Whatever the case, the church isn't talking except to say that the game is out of the hall. Sister Barbie Mitzvah, chair-nun of the bingo bash, said the group was "stunned and deeply saddened" by the ouster.

More-Not All Publicity Is Good Publicity

Unfortunately, some people caught wind of the fact that they were holding it in the fellowship hall of Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church -- and notified the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, which has a long history in regards to the Sisters. As a result, it seems, the Archdiocese of San Francisco has has put the kibosh on using the church hall, just in time for the November 2nd event.

I don't see anything here. So I guess the faithful Catholics on the internet might have "caught the fire of the Holy Spirit" and made the difference--starting with Mark Shea and his reader that alerted him of the upcoming events (See-Thursday, 10-26-06) "Unleash the Power of the Blog" ....but shhhhhhhh!! We have to be quiet while we go about the FATHER'S BUSINESS!


Losing the venue is bad enough. However, according to my phone call, the likelihood is high that the event will be canceled -- not just because of the loss of venue, but because the event is apparently being used for negative pre-election publicity.

Nah....don't think so...but you could be right since Mrs. Pelosi is a friend to this area....hmmmm...maybe the word was put out there..."don't stir up the Christians"!?


I'll update with further details as I receive them.

I will do the same! You can count on it!

Verification-"Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" Denied Use of Hall

REVIVAL Bingo Has Lost Its Lease

It looks like the SPI Revival Bingo has been completely shut-down for this week and for next month's previously scheduled event. YEA GOD! Now what will the archdiocese do about future? We wait and pray that all will come to HIS TRUTH!

On October 31, 2006, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were informed that we could no longer rent Ellard Hall by the Parish Council President, Nick Andrade. This was both a shock and a surprise as we have worked very closely with Most Holy Redeemer Church to provide fundraising services for both the Church and other beneficiaries.

At this time, we do not have any information on why we lost our lease. We ask that you be fair and kind to members of the Church and hold no hard feelings to them or their congregation. We want to thank you for your support and look forward to bringing back Bingo as soon as possible for both the players and the revenue it generates for our beneficiaries.Our official statement regarding this unexpected cancellation of our lease as follows:

SAN FRANCISCO, 31 October 2006 — The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are stunned and deeply saddened by the Archdiocese of San Francisco's abrupt cancellation of their lease for Ellard Hall, the location of their charitable monthly bingo fundraising event.The Sisters want to apologize to the organizations that depend on our support, including the AIDS Emergency Fund and the Positive Resource Center. Both of these worthy organizations were to be the recipients of this week's proceeds, however due to today's decision by the Archdiocese, we will no longer be able to hold bingo. The Sisters would also like to apologize to the SFPD Pride Foundation, UCSF AIDS Health Project, Saint James Infirmary and Tenderloin Tessies Holiday Feed, all of whom were scheduled to be beneficiaries for future bingos. And, of course, the Sisters extend our apologies and regrets to the many players who purchased tickets and were anticipating many more joyous evenings of fundraising.The primary mission of The Sisters is involvement in and support of the local community. This includes working with and supporting many local community organizations whose ability to serve their constituency is dependent on contributions from charitable groups like the Sisters. Without the thousands of dollars raised by the consistently sold-out monthly bingo event, their services may be cut at a time when charitable giving is more critical than ever.The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence believe that our commitment to giving is in alignment with the philosophy of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, which represents a cross-section of the San Francisco population. It is unfortunate and extremely disappointing that this appears not to be the case, and that our shared values cannot overcome our differences of opinion when it comes to how we serve the community.

I don't think that masquerading and parading around on Catholic diocesan church property blaspheming the Catholic Church and displaying this behavior near the Blessed Sacrament while on the same property is "shared values"! The ends DO NOT justify the means! Charity!? Please! Where is their charity in their displayed and deplorable antics against Holy Mother Church and Christianity!?

Taking Back Halloween-Vigil of All Saints

Halloween doesn't spook Christians

I have an idea-why not hand out with the candy -Miraculous Medals or other saint medals or their prayer cards. That would be a great way to take "it" back.

Archdiocese of S.F. Stops "Revival Bingo"

(See "Denial of Sin" previous post below-10-27-06)

Statement by the Archdiocese of San Francisco:
Permission to use Ellard Hall should not have been given to the group. The Archdiocese of San Francisco has directed the parish to end the arrangement immediately. For years the group has directed contempt and ridicule at Catholic faith and practices. The particular targets of the group's derision are women in religious communities, for whom Catholics, and many non-Catholics,have a special reverence and respect.

Your Excellency,
Please speak with Rev. Stephen Meriwether-Chancellor of your archdiocese and Pastor of Most Holy Redeemer Church in regards to the sinful, scandalous, and deplorable event Revival Bingo scheduled for Nov. 2 on the MHR property-Ellard Hall. A group well-known locally, nationally, and internationally Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) is scheduled to use this property to hold a charity fund raiser this week and is currently scheduled for Dec. 7th. (they also used the property last month Sept.7) and apparently the Ellard Hall/Church property has been used before (6-21-2003) for another function"Switch Hitters Ball".

I am so very scandalized by this behavior and ashamed that such deplorable and blasphemous actions would take place where the presence of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST RESIDES--the Tabernacle-IN HIS TEMPLE! I plan to alert the Vatican, the USCCB, and others of this unseemly and scandalous behavior against the BODY OF CHRIST.

I ask that you please inform Fr. Meriwether to cease and desist this type of use of diocesan property and in fraternal charity/correction please advise him NOT to participate in the scandalous behavior recently demonstrated in a Gay Pride Parade held this past Spring (2006). He presents confusion not only to his "flock" but to the rest of the world in these pictures displayed on the MHR home web-pages: I also beg that these images be removed from the public domain of the inter-net as they too present great scandal and offense to the Body of Christ-good Catholics and holy priests. This behavior also gives our priests great sorrow and anguish as they currently defend their vocations (Priesthood Sunday). I also request action to be demonstrated to the faithful that this scandalous behavior or any other scandalous behavior will not again occur in the future in your archdiocese. Please know that lay Catholics world-wide await and pray for an immediate response and correction to this situation.
Thank you for your time.
In Christ,

I can only hope and pray that these events will not continue to occur in this diocese or this country! GOD HAVE MERCY!

Call your credit card company and ask if your card contains an RFID tag. RFID tags are so small and thin that they can be hidden within the
plastic. An RFID tag communicates by silent, invisible radio waves. If you don't ask, you might never know that your card can beam back information like your credit card number, name etc. The exception is the American Express Blue card. You can see the RFID tag through the clear plastic.

Today-Priesthood Sunday

Please take a moment to reflect on all the priests that have brought the sacraments to you. Why not send them an uplifting note of support and encouragement and of course thank them for accepting their calling to their vocation. Remember we would not have Christ in the Eucharist with out their presence!

Our Lady of Fatima please keep your sons close to your Immaculate Heart -protect them and guide them.


Our first reason for proposing a Priesthood Sunday is to affirm the priesthood in the life of the Church. Because there are fewer priests, people see less and less of them. Young people are not offered the opportunity to get to know priests. The explosion of lay ministers in pastoral ministry has lessened the visibility of the priest in the community. The role of the priest has shifted since Vatican II, causing some confusion about the place of the priest in the life of the Church. Our proposal seeks to reaffirm the priesthood of Jesus Christ and its central place in the life of the Church.

Second, in the wake of the clergy sex abuse scandal, there has been concern that all priests have been tainted by the actions of a few. Some organizations and parishes have attempted to counteract this negativity. “Priesthood Sunday”sends a message to Catholics and non-Catholics everywhere that the parish priest, as the instrument of Christ’s priesthood on earth, should be loved and respected by those in the parish community.

Michael J. Fox on ABC

You can see the interview here-Michael J. Fox Fires Back at Critics and read the transcript. Michael J. Fox admits he hasn't read the entire wording of the MO admentment:

Stephanopoulos: In the ad now running in Missouri, Jim Caviezel speaks in Aramaic. It means, "You betray me with a kiss." And his position, his point, is that actually even though down in Missouri they say the initiative is against cloning, it's actually going to allow human cloning.
Fox: Well, I don't think that's true. You know, I campaigned for Claire McCaskill. And so I have to qualify it by saying I'm not qualified to speak on the page-to-page content of the initiative. Although, I am quite sure that I'll agree with it in spirit, I don't know, I— On full disclosure, I haven't read it, and that's why I didn't put myself up for it distinctly.
