Holy Cross 'Catholic Status' At Risk Over Planned Parenthood, NARAL

Durbin and Others Revive DREAM Act Amnesty In New Bill

Although senators have, thus far, passed on tacking the DREAM Act amnesty on as an amendment to several other bills, majority leadership is now pushing for a vote on the DREAM Act as a stand-alone measure. That bill is expected to be S. 2205, introduced yesterday (no text yet available) by Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and cosponsored by two long-tenured Republicans. It is imperative that NumbersUSA members contact their senators to stave off any future activity on the DREAM Act.

Prayers to St. Anthony for Conversion

Catholics Deny Communion on Political Grounds

Conservative Catholics are once again up in arms against the Sisters, this time because members went to Most Holy Redeemer Church in the Castro on the Sunday morning of the Castro Street Fair to partake in one of the world’s stranger religious rituals: the eating of the body of Jesus Christ (their alleged crucified savior) and the drinking of his blood in the form of a wafer of bread and a sip of grape juice (or are they still using wine?). Archbishop Niederauer, who was saying the Mass, noticed the unusually dressed persons, but gave them Communion anyway. After all, when in Rome.I’m not a Catholic anymore, but as I recall, that’s what priests are supposed to do. Nuns and priests in the schools I attended never said, “we don’t give Communion to gay guys dressed as nuns.”


So very sad!

At least it’s not the bad old days when the Archbishop would have just ordered the Sisters burned at the stake.

Prayers to St. Anthony for Conversion

Loving Saint Anthony you always reached out in compassion to those who had lost their faith. You were especially concerned because they had lost access to the healing words of Jesus found in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and in the nourishing presence of Jesus in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

Intercede for (name) who has stopped practicing his/her faith. Reawaken in his/her heart a love for our Church and the sacraments, and enkindle in his/her heart a sense of forgiveness for the ways he/she might have been hurt by members of the Church who fell short of the teaching of Christ.

Finally, St. Anthony, help me to respond to my own call to conversion so that I might become an example of someone who has found great peace in the arms of Christ. May the joy I experience as a Catholic be an invitation to those who are lost to come home again to the Church which we love. Amen.

MHR-San Francisco Archbishop giving Communion to 'nuns' overblown

Jesuit Father Donal Godfrey, one of the Mass concelebrants, said the way the two men were dressed was "disrespectful to religious sisters," but he said he felt "it probably wasn't their intention (to offend.) They knelt in all the right places. They stood in all the right places. Except for the way they were dressed, they weren't doing anything disrespectful."

"I thought it was disrespectful for somebody to go to another church with the intention of filming it," he added, "without asking the pastor permission to do that and, second, with the intention of using that in a hostile way, without having a conversation first with the pastor. On the face of it, they were out to get the archbishop."

Asked about reaction he had received, Archbishop Niederauer expressed concern about the impact of Web logs, or blogs.

"The blogosphere is a kind of dangerous, endless recess in a global schoolyard," he said, "where the bullies with the biggest bullhorns can shout whatever they want."

Get your bullhorns ready!!

Political Notebook: SF archbishop in hot water

Matt Dorsey, an openly gay member of the church's parish council, dismissed the criticisms against the Sisters receiving the Eucharist as having little to do with Catholicism.

"This organization is a hard right fundamentalist group that does not represent mainstream Catholics, and frankly, does not espouse any teaching of Jesus Christ I am aware of," said Dorsey. "The same people object to Communion being given to Nancy Pelosi , John Kerry, and Rudy Giuliani. The truth is this isn't about religion; it is about the culture war and their efforts to drag the archbishop into it."

Halloween Store Obscenity Charges Dropped

From a reader - her report:

Dear Friends,

I called the "Spirit Halloween" main number at 1-800-COSTUME and spoke to someone who carefully took down my complaint re: the obscene adult costumes of a priest and nun at the "Spirit Halloween" stores This person explained she would foreword it to the appropriate person. I also sent an email to

Then I immediately called my local "Spirit Halloween" store to ask if they were carrying the obscene adult costumes of a priest and nun. The manager, who answered the phone, said "yes, they had these costumes". I explained that I was a Catholic and extremely offended by this direct insult on Catholic priests, nuns and the entire Catholic Church. This manager proudly told me that she too, was not only a Catholic, but was also a Confirmation teacher at her Catholic parish here in town. She thinks it's just fine to have these profane costumes and said, "we really need to pick our battles". When I commented we would never see costumes of this nature depicting the Jewish or Islamic faith, she said, "Oh, I don't know about that". I pleaded with her, in a very respectful tone, to try to understand the disrespect this brings to our priests and nuns and I told her that I would be praying she makes the right decision to remove the offensive costumes. She thanked me. I AM praying! Please do the same....

Thank you and God bless!


I called too and was told they could address the issue in 2 weeks. I told them I didn't have 2 weeks. So I pushed the issue and asked that someone higher contact me. The young lady on the other end said that they would probably call me. YEA RIGHT. We have to continually work and fight to defend HIM in all that we do and say. NO matter what. So let's keep calling them and sending emails.

This isn't just a culture war folks---IT'S SPIRITUAL WARFARE!
Again: "But if I had been busy doing the things I should've been doing the past several years— praying more and being a good witness— it wouldn't have come to this. There wouldn't be costumes like that."
Are you ready? Another piece of ammo available to each faithful Catholic is Blessed Salt. Why not visit the local stores to pray and place blessed salt on the premises.

And remember IN YOUR FAITH is where the HIS POWER LIVES!

Also Monday, a Catholic priest in Mosul said two other priests from his church had been released a day earlier, hours after they were kidnapped on their way home from a funeral in northern Iraq. The priest requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media and the report could not immediately be verified.

****Warning offensive material****
Obscene adult costumes of a priest and nun are being distributed on the internet and to local Halloween stores across the nation.
In two Albuquerque Halloween stores, costumes of the "Happy Priest" and "Pregnant Nun" are openly displayed. "The Happy Priest" costume depicts a priest with an erection while the costume of a pregnant nun is called "Thank you, Father". Other filthy nun outfits displayed on the website include the "Sexy Nun" and "Sexy One Bad Habit". While other costumes of religious figures including a Rabbi and Moses are available, only the priest and nun are portrayed in a profane and raunchy fashion; truly the product of cynical, sick mind!
Local Albuquerque Catholic activists are organizing a boycott and pickets at two Spirit Halloween stores.
Please protest the obscene costumes. Tell them as a Catholic you are deeply offended by this bigoted attack using obscene costumes on the thousands of Catholic clergy and religious in America who devote their lives in countless ministries to sacrifice and humbly serve the Church and people in need in communities everywhere.
Call the main distributor of this filthy display of bigotry and prejudice against Catholic religious at 1-800-COSTUME and tell them to remove these costumes from distribution NOW!
I know everybody (including myself) is tired of this's ok. Just remember that we can not be complacent in this battle. Think of all the graces ready to be bestowed upon each of us! AWESOME! And again, we don't have to leave our homes to travel barefoot across barren deserts!
Here's our moment to wipe away the tears and blood from HIS BROW in the Garden of Gethsemane. WOW! What blessings!
Also remember Prayers 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.

MHR Sunday Bulletin - SPI's -"DELTA" "Thank You Note"

To All the Folks at Most Holy Redeemer,
Just a quick note to recognize the
wonderful Mass (Oh, there they are! Look to the far left under the choir loft corner)yesterday at your Church to welcome Archbishop Niederauer. Your entire congregation was so welcoming and it was great to be able to participate in the Mass. The service was absolutely beautiful and I know that I personally walked away very inspired by both the Archbishop’s message and the angelic voices of your choir ringing in my ears! Amazing!

Afterwards, one of the parishioners offered us a blue “MHRC: An Inclusive Catholic Church” pin that I was proud to wear through the Castro Fair. You are a wonderfully inclusive Church!
Best Regards,Delta (Goodhand)

And this:

Street Fair (More info on 'Folsom fair')
We would like to thank the Young Adult Group for staffing the parish information booth at the Castro Street fair. Thank you also to the Support Group for facilitating the parish’s presence in this neighborhood celebration.

This is over the edge...that they (the parish) would publish this in their bulletin...come on... OBSTINATE! This also blows apart Bill O'Reilly's argument...doesn't it!? THEY WERE WELCOMED! Mr. O'Reilly there's a bigger problem in SF...and it's not just about the politicians and media!


Again, Prayers of Reparation!
