PRAYER ALERT! Satanists Vandalize Catholic Church in Baton Rouge, LA

Vandals left their mark on St. Joseph Cathedral overnight, spray-painting vulgarities and Satanic symbols on sacred 19th-century artifacts for all to see on Holy Thursday.

Red, yellow and orange pentagrams stain a marble crucifix, a statue of the Virgin Mary and a wall near the church rectory. Nearby brick walls bear the biblical number of the beast: 666.

The tears that must flow from Our Blessed Mother's eyes and from Our FATHER'S!!

LORD have mercy! Please pray for this parish!

Mass. governor blasted for approving 'same-sex' marriage certificates

ABC 20/20 Report- "Ministry Watch" - Financial Transparency

MinistryWatch featured on 20/20 with John Stossel. I watched this program and was shocked.

You'll find postive info-Shining Lights "Top 30" List of Exemplary Ministries 2006 (pdf. file)

With negative info- Failed to Exhibit Financial Transparency (pdf.file)

And look at one of the largest ministries listed - #4 with a Grade A-Catholic Relief Services

Ministry/Foundation Guide to Financial Transparency(pdf.file) - very helpful to use in discerning and practicing good stewardship.

Maybe if we would apply this information to all charities, foundations, and groups in the Catholic Church maybe all the dissenting groups wouldn't proliferate.

Ahmadinejad Says He Will Pardon and Free British Sailors

Persecution Continues Around the U.S.

Whitewashing Jihad in the Schools...Commentary at CNSNews-Cybercast News Service from Michelle Malkin on the 'mock terrorist/hostage drill' held at a Burlington, New Jersey public high school.

In the drill they referred to the mock terrorists as the "New Crusaders" - 'right wing fundamentalists'!

The mock terror attack involved two irate men armed with handguns who invaded the high school through the front door. They pretended to shoot several students in the hallway and then barricaded themselves in the media center with 10 student hostages.

Two Burlington Township police detectives portrayed the gunmen. Investigators described them as members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the “New Crusaders” who don't believe in separation of church and state. The mock gunmen went to the school seeking justice because the daughter of one had been expelled for praying before class.

Where's the public outcry from the parents of this school district? Why hasn't someone in admin. been questioned about this? If I lived in this area, with or without a student attending I'd be voicing my concerns immediately. Even if I didn't have children, I'd be on the phone not today, but yesterday! Burlington Township High School.

*UPDATE: From WorldnetDaily - 'Hostage situation' portrays killers as Christians & PR from Burlington Township School District on incident.

Air Maria

'It' has begun....

Genoa cathedral defaced; gay activists suspected

The words "Bagnasco shame" were spray-painted across the main entrance to the cathedral of St. Lawrence in Genoa. The words appeared shortly after Archbishop Bagnasco, the president of the Italian bishops' conference, issued a statement opposing the legal recognition of civil unions, and saying that the government's failure to enforce moral norms regarding marriage could open the way to all kinds of perverse relationships.

Police in Genoa told reporters that Archbishop Bagnasco was being accompanied by an armed guard because of concerns about his security raised by the incident.

Tony Snow's got it - FAITH!

The Tony Snow I Know

He said the disease caused him to ask where he would go with faith: "For a lot of us as kids, having faith is like sitting on Santa's lap; you pray because you want things and you want outcomes. But instead when you're faced with death, you don't really die, you get to go to a cooler place with maybe a sterner teacher. It's not that big a leap and you're going to see a lot of friends there." Now there's a sermon!

So, how do you approach God, he wondered? Do you ask for favors, or do you do something that is very hard in the modern era, "which is learn how to give yourself to God, to surrender. It's not just saying God, it's in your hands,' but understanding whatever may come afterwards is a matter of not trying to get God to do stuff for you, except maybe to mow down some of the barriers that separate you from God, because for all of us, our vanities get in the way."

Snow says his deepening faith didn't happen overnight. It began with realizing "how many people loved me." He said a lot of life is figuring out you're not in charge and figuring out who is. He started to pray, he said, and began to sense a growing presence of God in his life. He said after his first cancer surgery many people sent him letters that included Bible verses. Among his favorites was Psalm 91:2-3: "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.'"

After his first cancer surgery, Snow said he had to stay in bed and he began reading the Bible more, "learning to pray" and to ask God to "draw me closer, please, (which) develops a hunger that is also a form of joy."

He said colleagues frequently ask him what he will do after the White House? He says he might have had an answer before, but now he has no clue. "I put everything in God's hands."

We can assist Tony on his journey, as he carries his cross. While his journey with his cross is very public, for all the world to see and hear about, many others carry their crosses in a not such a public manner. What lessons we can all learn through his very public journey, most especially in this Holy Week.
We'll continue to pray for you Tony according to HIS WILL!
Thank you and God Bless you Tony!
Thank and praise YOU Most Holy Trinity for Tony's great witness!

Rest In Peace Holy Father John Paul II

October 16, 1978 - April 2, 2005

Prayers for the repose of the soul
of the Late Great Pope John Paul II
on the second anniversary of his death.
Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace. Amen.


VATICAN CITY, APR 1, 2007 (VIS) - Pope Benedict XVI's general prayer intention for April is: "That, allowing himself to be enlightened and guided by the Holy Spirit, every Christian may answer enthusiastically and faithfully to the universal call to sanctity."

His mission intention is: "That the number of priestly and religious vocations may grow in North America and the countries of the Pacific Ocean, in order to give an adequate answer to the pastoral and missionary needs of those populations."

Accepting our Crosses - daily, hourly, and by the minute

For that's as much as we can do, but with HIS grace we can do all things!

"Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another."

"With great joy and enthusiasm," he said, "you have welcomed this new commandment of Christ, Who calls you to be His witnesses among your peers. Do not be afraid to follow Him faithfully."

"I wish everyone a Holy Week rich in spiritual fruits and for this reason I invite you to experience it in intimate union with the Virgin Mary. "From her we learn interior silence, the gaze of the heart, the loving faith to follow Jesus on the way of the Cross which leads to the joyous light of the Resurrection."

I pray and hope for you the same - a very richly blessed Holy Week!
