Emmett and Owen Ezell were born in August in Dallas, Texas but they were very much unlike most sets of twins. They were are identical twins joined in utero — a rare phenomenon that happens in as many as 1 in 200,000 births. About half of such twins are stillborn, but Owen and Emmett survived not only the birthing process — their mother rejected abortion. […]
Have you ever met someone who has an ongoing joyful and peaceful disposition even in the midst of a personal crisis? They often draw others to them as if they have classified information; perhaps even the secret to life. Those of us who take notice often say, “I will have a serving of whatever they are having!”
In the coming months, Catholics in the Diocese of Green Bay will learn more about a new initiative being introduced by Bishop David Ricken. Known as “Disciples on the Way,” it is a six-year process — “a missionary journey into the new evangelization” — divided into three phases.

Today, the Latin Church has the gospel of Judas betraying Jesus (see previous post today) and the Byzantine Church will chant the story of Jesus being anointed at Bethany. For me, this is another aspect of the Mystery of the Incarnation.
During a healing service for victims-survivors of sexual abuse last week in Appleton, Bishop David Ricken said it is important for the church to make reparation “to all victims in our diocese, particularly of clergy abuse.” “To make reparations means to repair the damage, spiritually, caused to the love of God and the Sacred Heart of Jesus by this terrible e […]
The Applied Population Laboratory in Madison is a little-known but very valuable resource for anyone interested in demographic trends and information about our state. Recently, the laboratory cooperated with the UW-Extension to examine what the 2010 census data and other demographic research can tell us about the Latino population in Wisconsin.
Operation Rescue has uncovered links between the Cleveland abortion clinic, Preterm, where a 22-year old African-American woman suffered a fatal abortion last month, and a foundation managed by the Warren Buffett family.
Jesus’s Resurrection “isn’t the happy ending of a beautiful fairytale, it isn’t the happy ending of a film”, but is the result of the loving intervention of God, who wanted to give humanity hope and salvation, Pope Francis said. In the middle of Holy Week, Pope Francis encouraged people to pick up a crucifix, kiss it and recite the simple prayer: “Thank you, […]
Psalm 93 [Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition]
1 The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.
2 Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?
4 Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?
5 Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.
6 They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.
7 And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
8 Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?
10 He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.
13 That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.
15 Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
18 If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?
21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.
23 And he will render them their iniquity: and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.
